Tina Turner

看過太多致敬專輯,也看過不少獨立廠牌找一堆阿薩不魯的「歌手」來致敬偶像,但這張「向蒂娜透納致敬」絕對造成某種程度的震撼!理由是這些卡斯儘管沒有當紅歌手,整體來說略顯村參差不齊,但光是幾位許久未見的歌手重出江湖,他們的出現和「向蒂娜透納致敬」這一詞相比之下,完全不遜色。

剛剛收到Yahoo Group「True To Tiffany」 的消息信件,老實說,自從她跑去拍某本雜誌封面嚇壞我後,我鮮少關注她的後續動向,要不是拜剛剛裝好的Yahoo Messenger彈跳出信件消息,我可能錯過她振奮人心的新聞,還能堅持在半夢半醒之間,寫下來和大家分享;但最「鬼打牆」的事實是,晚上我在回家的路上,心血來潮反覆唱著蒂芬妮的經典〈I Think We're Alone Now〉、〈I Saw Him Standing There〉等,不到幾小時後,我竟然在寫她翻唱蒂娜透納的曠世經典「與愛何干」,光是看到小蒂唱大蒂的歌曲擺在第一首,即便還沒能聽到歌曲,就深深以為這張致敬專輯光有蒂芬妮就夠花錢到網路上買下。

為了這張本月15日上架的《What's Love? A Tribute to Tina Turner》致敬專輯,發行的Versailles Records還慎重其事在官方的網站上發布新聞稿,當然最令人側目的不是蒂芬妮,而是素有「美國冰后」之稱、1992奧運銅牌、94年銀牌得主的Nancy Kerrigan〈對,就是那個被攻擊的滑冰選手〉在專輯中演唱了蒂娜透納為運動界所熟知並使用的招牌金曲〈The Best〉。可是,更嚇人的還有後面一票現在都不知道跑去哪的歌手:超老牌歌姬Darlene Love、加拿大雙姝Jane Child與Alannah Myles、藍調吉他英雄Jeff Healey、Deniece Williams、重金屬樂團Winger主唱Kip Winger〈他們最為人熟知的歌曲是Miles Away〉、90年以〈No More Lies〉走紅的R&B/嘻哈女歌手蜜雪兒等都名列其中。

其他如Richard Kendrick、Rose Reiter、Tony Janflone Jr.、Wendy Jans、Ross Stevens等就真的是很獨立的名字,據了解,有些就是Versailles Records力捧的明日之星。即使沒有任何一位歌手是現在當紅的市場明星,不過對許多喜愛80到90年代初期的歌迷來說,《What's Love? A Tribute to Tina Turner》仍有其吸引之處。

You must understand how the touch of your hand
Makes my pulse react
That it's only the thrill of boy meeting girl
Opposites attract
It's physical
Only logical
You must try to ignore that it means more than that

What's love got to do, got to do with it
What's love but a second hand emotion
What's love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken

It may seem to you that I'm acting confused
When you're close to me
If I tend to look dazed I've read it someplace
I've got cause to be
There's a name for it
There's a phrase that fits
But whatever the reason you do it for me

What's love got to do, got to do with it
What's love but a second hand emotion
What's love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken

I've been taking on a new direction
But I have to say
I've been thinking about my own protection
It scares me to feel this way

*(What's love got to do, got to do with it
What's love but a second hand emotion
What's love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken

What's love got to do, got to do with it
What's love but a sweet old fashioned notion
What's love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken) *

    三年前我在東區一家二手CD店 <br />
    終於找到HOLD AN OLD FRIEND'S HAND <br />
    專輯時 只差沒在店裡大聲喊叫 <br />
    真的是找了好久好久好久~~~~~ <br />
    <br />
    我永遠記得1988年 <br />
    我在西門町來來百貨青少年館裡 <br />
    聽到ALL THIS TIME的悸動 <br />
    當年的卡帶如今還好好的在抽屜裡呢 <br />
    <br />
    可惜她跟黛比都只紅前兩張 <br />
    還好她們CD後來都有購得 <br />
    不過都是經典了 <br />
    替我留下了很棒的青澀記憶囉 <br />
    <br />
      <br />

  • 裘弟
  • 我當然愛她們兩個啊! <br />
    雖然當初恨蒂 <br />
    不過Tiffany的音樂也曾給我一段...回憶 <br />
    只是回憶中的主角現在不知道好不好 <br />
