歐洲性格混血歌手〔妮娜雪芮〕──Pop-Rap經典──舞曲榜冠軍──〔Buffalo Stance/水牛姿態〕

 

Buffalo Stance
Who's that gigolo on the street
With his hands in his pockets and his crocodile feet
Hanging off the curb, looking all disturbed
At the boys from home. They all came running
They were making noise, manhandling toys
That's the girls on the block with the nasty curls
Wearing padded bras sucking beers through straws
Dropping down their drawers, where did you get yours?

Gigolo, Huh, sukka?
Gigolo. Gigolo, Huh, sukka?

Chorus1:
Who's looking good today?
Who's looking good in every way?
No style rookie
You better watch don't mess with me

Chorus2:
No moneyman can win my love
It's sweetness that I'm thinking of.
We always hang in a Buffalo Stance
We do the dive every time we dance
I'll give you love baby not romance
I'll make a move nothing left to chance
So don't you get fresh with me

Get funky. Yeah Timmy.
Tell it like it is. Check out this DJ.

So you say you wanted money but you know it's never funny
When your shoes worn through and there's a rumble in your tummy
But you had to have style get a gold tooth smile
Put a girl on the corner so you can make a pile
Committed a crime and went inside
It was coming your way but you had to survive
When you lost your babe, you lost the race
Now you're looking at me to take her place.

Chorus1

Smokin.'Not cokin.'Get funky sax.
Looking good, hanging with the wild bunch.
Looking good in a Buffalo Stance.
Looking good when it comes to the crunch
Looking good's a state of mind
State of mind don't look behind you
State of mind or you'll be dead
State of mind may I remind you
Bomb the Bass...rock this place!
What is he like?What's he like anway?
Yo' man what do you expect the guy's a gigolo man
You know I mean?

Chorus2 X 2
Wind on my face, sound in my ears
Water from my eyes, and you on my mind
As I sink, diving down deep...deeper into your soul.

Chorus2 to fade...

 

 

妮娜雪芮(Neneh Cherry是80年代末期英國個人主義式R&BHip-HopDance界的代表人物之一

1964年 雪芮出生在斯德哥爾摩 父親是非洲獅子山共和國裔黑人 母親是瑞典畫家

父母離婚後 母親帶著她嫁給美國知名爵士歌手唐雪瑞(Don Cherry

此後在歐洲與英國間游移

雪芮在14歲休學 搬到倫敦 參加數個樂團

19歲結婚 生下一名女兒 隔年離婚

1987年 妮娜遇見英國製作人Cameron Mcvey(兩人在1990年結婚)

並在英國團體The The單曲〔Slow Train To Dawn〕中客串主唱 拿到排行榜#64

 

1988年 雪芮與維京(Virgin)唱片簽約

推出個人首張單曲Buffalo Stance/水牛姿態〕

此曲原先是Cameron Mcvey先前參與一個雙人組Morgan-Mcvey所發行單曲〔Looking Good Diving〕的B面歌曲

他拿給當時女友雪芮重新詮釋

Cameron Mcvey是作者之一 妮娜也參與譜寫

1988年版的〔Buffalo Stance〕融合了Hip-Hop/Rap/R&B/Funky/Dance
內容則是譏諷沙文主義者的自私與傲慢

拿下英國榜#3 讓她一舉成名

Buffalo Stance在國際市場頗為成功 拿下荷蘭&瑞典冠軍 德國&瑞士亞軍 挪威#3 奧地利&愛爾蘭#7 紐西蘭#14 澳洲#21
1989年初 雪芮進軍美國市場 拿下流行榜得到#3 舞曲播放冠軍 舞曲銷售冠軍
說唱榜#16 黑人榜#30 也賣到金唱片
 全球超過百萬銷售

這首英國製的Hip-Hop/Rap勁曲相當前衛
也比普通美國黑人的rap更易消化
隔年讓雪芮成為首位得到葛萊美獎提名的女性rapper (最佳新人)

 



Buffalo Stance〕收錄在妮娜1989年5月發行的首張大碟Raw Like Sushi/生鮮如壽司〕中

這張專輯成績不錯 拿下英國亞軍 德國#10 美國#40

Raw Like Sushi/生鮮如壽司〕是張節拍分明 態度幽默卻強硬的作品
不但樂風豐富(Pop, Hip-Hop, Rap, Funk, Latin , R&B, Go-Go,Dance-Pop, Alternative Dance
而且批判許多社會不公現象 譬如受虐小孩與狠心父母 , 顧此失彼的政府施政
妮娜還諷刺大男人主義者的自大心態
在專輯中向那些傲慢男人挑釁道:人性的尊嚴可不是建立在你老二的尺寸上
Raw Like Sushi〕融合了眾家黑人樂風 相當受到好評
1980年代Hip-Hop/Rap還不像21世紀這麼盛行
雪芮可說是當時少見的女性饒舌歌手

個人有蒐集〔Raw Like Sushi〕 的確是精彩的專輯
推薦這首不但樂風精彩 更言之有物的80年代Pop-Rap經典給各位

buffalo stance這首歌當年可是非常紅呢!當時pub猛撥buffalo stance,服飾店也狂放buffalo stance,最後聽到有點麻痺...
[版主回覆06/26/2010 23:31:52]這我倒是不曉得
不過現在聽buffalo stance
還是覺得很前衛哩
