美國歌壇天王[平克勞斯貝]───Swing/爵士曲──[Shanghai/上海]

 

 

Whos gonna kiss me
Whos gonna thrill me
Whos gonna hold me tight
Tonight

Why did I tell you I was goin to Shanghai
I want to be with you tonight
Why did I holler I was goin to Shanghai
I want to be with you tonight
It was just a little misunderstanding
That a kiss on the cheek could patch
I need you so badly
Id gladly start all over from scratch

Oh, why did I tell you it was bye-bye for Shanghai
Im even allergic to rice
Why dont you stop me when I talk about Shanghai
Its just a lovers device

Now whos gonna kiss me
Whos gonna thrill me
Whos gonna hold me tight

Im right around the corner in the phone booth
And I wanna be with you tonight


Now why did I tell you it was bye-bye for Shanghai
Im even allergic to rice
Why dont you stop me when I talk about Shanghai
Its just a lovers device

Now whos gonna kiss me
Whos gonna thrill me
Whos gonna hold me tight

Im right around the corner in the phone booth
And I wanna be with you tonight

Who-oo-oo-oos gonna kiss me
Whos gonna thrill me
Whos gonna hold me tight

Im right around the corner in the phone booth
And I wanna
Yes I wanna
I wanna be with you tonight

 

 

 

 

上海是20世紀上半葉東亞最著名的城市,被稱為冒險家的天堂,東方巴黎, 東方珍珠等

對西方人來說,既洋溢著古老中國的異域風情, 又帶有現代的歐洲風貌

充滿魅惑迷人的吸引力

因而歐美娛樂媒體提及上海的次數比其它東亞城市頻繁

譬如1932年好萊塢大賣電影[Shanghai Express/上海特快列車], 1935年美國電影[Shanghai/上海], 1938年美國電影[International Settlement(上海)公共租界], 1938年法國電影[Le drame de Shanghaï/上海戲劇], 1941年美國電影[The Shanghai Gesture]便以上海為背景題材

音樂方面例子較少,但也有1951年的流行曲[Shanghai/上海]

 

1951年 48歲的美國歌壇巨星天王平克勞斯貝(Bing Crosby)發行單曲[Shanghai](別名:[ (Why Did I Tell You I Was Going To) Shanghai(為何我告訴你我將去)上海])

Bob Hilliard填詞,  Milton De Lugg譜曲

首先灌錄的是桃麗絲黛(Doris Day, 頗受歡迎, 拿到Billboard單曲榜#9

接著Billy Williams Quartet也推出自己版本, 拿到Billboard單曲榜#20

 

1951年6月 平克勞斯貝與Dave Barbour管絃樂團灌錄此曲

9月時由Decca唱片發行單曲

Swing/爵士曲風

在搖擺的節奏間, 平游刃有餘的演繹這首情歌

Shanghai/上海]登上Billboard單曲榜#21

一年內三個版本全登上Billboard單曲榜Top25

可見這首歌曲受歡迎的程度
