義大利創作才子〔RAF〕與美國實力歌姬〔蘿拉布蘭妮根〕的交集──義大利冠軍──〔Self Control/自我控制〕原版

 

Oh, the night is my world
City light painted girl
In the day nothing matters
It's the night time that flatters
In the night, no control
Through the wall something's breaking
Wearing white as you're walkin'
Down the street of my soul

You take my self, you take my self control
You got me livin' only for the night
Before the morning comes, the story's told
You take my self, you take my self control

Another night, another day goes by
I never stop myself to wonder why
You help me to forget to play my role
You take my self, you take my self control

I, I live among the creatures of the night
I haven't got the will to try and fight
Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I'll just believe it
That tomorrow never comes

A safe night, I'm living in the forest of my dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something, so I'll make myself believe it
That this night will never go

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Oh, the night is my world
City light painted girl
In the day nothing matters
It's the night time that flatters

I, I live among the creatures of the night
I haven't got the will to try and fight
Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I'll just believe it
That tomorrow never knows

A safe night, I'm living in the forest of a dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something, so I'll make myself believe it
That this night will never go

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
You take my self, you take my self control
You take my self, you take my self control
You take my self, you take my self control ...

 

 

 

 

1984 美國歌姬蘿拉布蘭妮根(Laura Branigan)以〔Self Control〕達到事業最高峰

不過此曲其實是翻唱自義大利歌手RAF的作品 而且兩者幾乎同時推出 同時走紅

RAF1959年出生 原名Raffaele Riefoli

1984年出道 推出第一張同名大碟〔Raf

首支主打即是他跟別人合寫的英文歌曲〔Self Control

此曲結合流行 搖滾 New Wave以及簡節明快的電子舞曲節拍

立刻在市場走紅 拿上義大利榜9週冠軍

就在這時 蘿拉布蘭妮根推出第三張專輯 亦翻唱了〔Self Control〕(大碟甚至以此為名)

當時她已是頗有名氣的歌手 這個版本立刻紅遍全球各地 登上十幾個國家的冠軍

連帶讓尚屬新人的Raf版本沾光 在歐洲暢銷

除義大利外 也拿到瑞士冠軍(當時他打下蘿拉 隔週又被後者擠下王座) 奧地利#7 法國Top40

在德國 他跟蘿拉版還同時分居亞軍跟冠軍

兩人魚幫水 水幫魚

共同成為1984年夏天歐洲最紅的歌曲

RAF也一炮而紅 在義大利走紅到現在

 

RAF跟蘿拉的版本其實相當接近

歌名歌詞完全沒變動

差別就在後者的編曲較為華麗流行 並強調蘿拉的花腔

RAF版則較簡潔有力

在聽慣蘿拉的版本後  RAF版會給人耳目一新的感受

老實說 個人覺得不會比蘿拉版差

聽過BraniganSelf Control〕的不妨聽聽RAF

看看兩者有何不同

 

 

RAF(Extended Mix)──個人覺得這個加長版比原版出色
