史爺搖滾 (2): 很屌,又很可愛的 Linda Ronstadt


話說 Different Drum 這首歌,Wikipedia 有這麼一段文字:

Different Drum” is a 1966 song written by Mike Nesmith and recorded by the Greenbriar Boys and included on their 1966 album, Better Late than Never!. In 1967, the song was performed by the Stone Poneys featuring a young and upcoming singer named Linda Ronstadt. The song was Ronstadt’s first hit single, reaching #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as #12 on the Cash Box magazine singles chart.

這首歌描述的是一個年輕氣盛,青春可人,又充滿傲氣的少女。描述她如何拒絕一個青年對她的愛意。歌辭間對這女孩不想被感情綁住的自由心態,寫的很好。以當時 Linda 的年青與養眼,加上她有個性又性感的聲音,她自然把這首歌發揮得淋瀝盡致。

我們都年青過,年輕時的傲氣,是蠻可愛的。

你和我,是踩著不同鼓點子向前走
難道還看不出來?
每次你看著我的時候,我就想溜。
哦!你又哭又鬧,說什麼我倆的感情會成功
但是,甜蜜的小寶貝呀,我不同意
你這是見樹不見林

哦,別誤會。
我不是在洩你的氣
其實衹是因為我現在還不想,
不想要一個專注著我的男孩

是呀,我也不是說你長相不好
我祇是說,我還沒準備好,
我不準備與任何想接近我的
人、地和物定下來

好啦,再見!我要走了
我看不出為什麼要哭哭啼啼的
我想當我離開之後
我倆都能活的久一點

Different Drum

You and I travel to the beat of a different drum
Oh can’t you tell by the way I run
Every time you make eyes at me
Wo-oh

You cry and moan and say it will work out
But honey child I’ve got my doubts
You can’t see the forest for the trees

Oh don’t get me wrong
It’s not that I knock it
It’s just that I am not in the market
For a boy who wants to love only me

Yes, and I ain’t saying you ain’t pretty
All I’m saying is I’m not ready
For any person place or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

So good-bye I’ll be leaving
I see no sense in this crying and grieving
We’ll both live a lot longer
If you live without me

Oh don’t get me wrong
It’s not that I knock it
It’s just that I am not in the market
For a boy who wants to love only me

Yes, and I ain’t saying you ain’t pretty
All I’m saying is I’m not ready
For any person place or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

So good-bye I’ll be leaving
I see no sense in this crying and grieving
We’ll both live a lot longer
If you live without me
