美國當代福音樂天后[艾美.葛蘭特]──合成流行/當代福音曲──[Angels/天使]

"Take this man to prison, " the man heard herod say,

And then four squads of soldiers came and carried him away.

Chained up between two watchmen, peter tried to sleep,

But beyond the walls an endless prayer was lifting for his keep.

Then a light cut through the darkness of a lonely prison cell,

And the chains that bound the man of God just opened up and fell,

And running to his people before the break of day,

There was only one thing on his mind, only one thing to say:

Angels watching over me, every move I make,

Angels watching over me!

Angels watching over me, every step I take,

Angels watching over me!

God only knows the times my life was threatened just today.

A reckless car ran out of gas before it ran my way.

Near misses all around me, accidents unknown,

Though I never see with human eyes the hands that lead me home.

But I know theyre all around me all day and through the night.

When the enemy is closing in, I know sometimes they fight

To keep my fight from falling, Ill never turn away.

If youre asking whats protecting me then youre gonna hear me say:

Got his angels watching over me, every move I make,

Angles watching over me!

Angels watching over me, every step I take,

Angels watching over me

Angels watching over me

Angels watching over me

Got his angels watching over me, every move I make,

Angels watching over me!

Angels watching over me, every step I take,

Angels watching over me!

Angels watching over me,

Angels watching over me,

Angels watching over me,

Angels watching over me!

Though I never see with human eyes the hands that lead me home

 

1982年5月 , 21歲半的美國當代福音天后艾美.葛蘭特(Amy Grant)發行第四張專輯〔Age to Age/時代對時代〕專輯(Myrrh出版),

開始融入明顯的流行曲風。

獲得高度讚揚, 成為當代福音樂的經典作品。

反應成功, 最後在美銷售突破100萬張,

這使艾美成為當代福音界首位拿到金/白金唱片的歌手。

並讓艾美開始打入主流市場,奠定其‘基督流行樂女皇’的地位。

 

1984年, 艾美推出第五張錄音室大碟[Straight Ahead/直接前進]

仍由Brown Bannister製作, 繼續顯示她積極轉向當代流行曲風的企圖, 融入電吉他與合成樂器, 主流味道更濃, 依舊獲得出色評價。

Straight Ahead/直接前進]成為葛蘭特首張打入Billboard專輯榜的大碟(#133)

並四度登上Billboard副榜──福音專輯榜冠軍, 在美國拿到金唱片(50萬張+), 加拿大金唱片(10萬張+)。

 

首支單曲為[Angels/天使],

由艾美,  Brown Bannister, 丈夫Gary Chapmanm與好友麥可史密斯(Michael W. Smith)合寫。

描述聖經中使徒彼得被希律王的警衛抓住, 接著形容上帝讓祂的天使照顧信徒,並指引保護他們在恐懼, 懷疑, 困惑與誘惑的時代當中。

被製作成一首合成流行風味的當代福音曲。

在輕快的節拍中, 葛蘭特以自信唱腔有力演繹, 展現虔誠信心的一面。

Angels]登上當代福音音樂雜誌(CCM)的福音熱門電台單曲榜冠軍

並讓艾美拿到第二座葛萊美最佳福音女歌手,

成為其事業經典之一。
