英國威爾斯搖滾女將[邦妮泰勒]──流行抒情搖滾──[Loving You’s a Dirty Job But Somebody’s Gotta Do It

When the sky is falling and you're looking round for somewhere to hide
Did you ever call out to someone, did you ever call out to me

I've never been gone, I've been right here by your side
There ain't nothin' but clouds, there ain't nothin' but clouds in your eyes

Why don't you believe it when you finally found the truth
You've been drinking poison water from the fountain of youth

Why don't you stop tearing up everyone you need the most
You're so busy trying to get even, you never even try to get close

I can't explain it away, it doesn't make any sense
To know what it's like, I guess you gotta go through it
I guess you gotta go through it, I guess you gotta go through it
It doesn't matter, baby

Loving you's a dirty job
But somebody's gotta do it

There were times when we'd never fake it
There were times when we'd always make it
There were times when we'd take it to the limit
And we'd never, never, ever leave each other alone

We were flesh and blood and bone
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

There were times when we took our chances
There were times when we were damn good dancers
There were times when we heard all the answers
In the beating of the drummer and the riches of the rock and the roll

I can see right through your soul
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

If your fears could only be forgotten, we could pull all of the barriers down
Would you follow your dreams' desire
Would you follow your secret dreams and forbidden fire
Let's just peel out of this town

It's been nothing but dreams
It's been nothing but dreams until now

You're never gonna see it
You got your head stuck in the sand
It's the land of the free and easy Street
It's the home of the damned

You're never gonna see it
You better open up your eyes
You're the only one who's left
Who's gonna believe all your lies

I can't explain it away, it doesn't make any sense
To know what it's like, I guess you gotta go through it
I guess you gotta go through it, I guess you gotta go through it
It doesn't matter, baby

Loving you's a dirty job
But somebody's gotta do it

There were times when our bodies glistened
There were times that we can't stop missing
There were times that we'd lay in bed and listen
To the pounding, pounding chorus of our desperate hearts

Nothing could have torn us apart
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

There were times when we fought like tigers
There were times we were damn good liars
There were times we extinguished every fire
That was burning, burning, burning up each other alive

From the heavens on down to the dives
There were times we lost it all
There were times we lost it all

There were times when we fought like tigers
There were times we were damn good liars

There were times when our bodies glistened
There were times that we can't stop missing
There were times that we'd lay in bed and listen
To the pounding, pounding chorus of our desperate hearts

Nothing could have torn us apart
There were times we had it all
There were times we had it all

It's a dirty job, loving you, baby
Somebody's gotta do it

It's a dirty job, loving you, baby
Somebody's gotta do it

It's a dirty job, loving you, baby
Somebody's gotta do it

1983年 英國威爾斯搖滾女歌手邦妮泰勒(Bonnie Tyler)以專輯[Faster Than the Speed of the Night]與單曲[Total Eclipse of the Heart]登上英倫榜冠軍 達到事業巔峰

1986年5月 35歲的英國搖滾女歌手邦妮泰勒發行第六張大碟[Screet Dreams and Forbidden Fire

評價商業皆不佳 

技術上的首支單曲是1984年發行的英國亞軍[Holding Out for a Hero] 但距離專輯發行兩年 實在太遠

實際首支主打(技術上第二單曲)是1985年底推出的[Loving You’s a Dirty Job But Somebody’s Gotta Do It/愛你是件下流活,但還是需有人作]

這是美國音樂人Jim Steinman譜寫 製作成一首流行搖滾 維持其時間頗長 編曲繁複的搖滾歌劇風格

由34歲的邦妮與美國歌手Todd Rundgren合唱

在前者沙啞嗓音與後者的男中音交替演繹下 組合成這首抒情佳構

只是市場反應不佳 只拿到英國榜#73 瑞士#24 法國#35 比利時#35 德國#41

MV以某劇院為主要場景 男主角則由與泰勒同鄉威爾斯演員Hywel Bennett對嘴 與邦尼共同演出

由於接下來發行的單曲表現皆差

導致[Screet Dreams and Forbidden Fire]大碟只拿到英國榜#24

雖然某些歐陸某些國家反應不差
