澳洲實力歌姬[海倫芮迪]──流行抒情曲──[The Happy Girls/快樂女孩]

Sally met him in the war, back in 1944

He took her home to the states

His buddies thought that she was great

Subway sallys 51

Her man is gone, the dreams are done

She rides by night the Brooklyn train

Sleeps by day to hide the pain

Lonely women of the world

Were the happy girls

Lonely heroes of the world

Seek the happy girls

Nancy saw him on the street

His shoes were shined, his suit was neat

She couldnt see his broken mind

Behind the mask of being kind

He sleeps inside the iron bars

Nancys smile cant hide the scars

Her daughters grown, theres no one home

She cries all night, shes all alone

Lonely women of the world

Were the happy girls

Lonely heroes of the world

Seek the happy girls

To tell the truth theres no end in sight

Mr Lonely always calls at night

Lets hold on tight until the morning light

Terrys gonna meet him soon

Today at school, maybe noon

I hope for her it turns out right

I know shes got a date tonight

Had my ups, had my downs

Truth was lost but truth was found

This Ive learned, the world still turns

We all get bruised, we all get burned

Lonely women of the world

Were the happy girls

Lonely heroes of the world

Seek the happy girls

Happy girls, happy girls, happy girls

 

1977年春天 35歲半的澳洲籍歌手海倫芮迪(Helen Reddy)發行第九張大碟[Ear Candy

Kim Fowley, Earle Mankey製作

跟之前專輯不同,這回芮迪參與五首歌曲創作, 樂評良好

首支主打[You’re My World/你是我的世界]讓她回到美國Billboard單曲榜Top20(#18) 副榜Easy Listening榜#5 加拿大#13

 

第二單曲為[The Happy Girls/快樂女孩]

作者為Kim Fowley, Rick Henn, Earle Mankey與瑞迪合寫──這是她少數參與創作的單曲。

Kim Fowley製作成一首流行抒情曲

海倫純淨嗓音的詮釋細膩溫馨

The Happy Girls]登上美國Billboard單曲榜#57 Easy Listening榜#14

雖然有兩首單曲入榜, 但並沒轉嫁到專輯, Ear Candy]只登上美國榜#75 加拿大#84 

成為1971年後首張未拿到金唱片認證的大碟

此後芮迪的唱片銷售每況愈下

1980年代中期便退出歌壇 轉向劇場發展
