Blue Bayou~Linda Ronstadt


Linda Ronstadt 於1946年在美國亞利桑那出生,娃娃臉的她早於64年便組成Stone poneys民謠樂隊,成績一般,四年後獨闖樂壇,1970年發行Silk Purse專輯,並以Long Long Time首次獲得格林美獎提名,Linda開始廣受注目和重視 1971年Linda組織專屬樂隊,其中樂手包括Glenn Frey和Don Henley,而她便是發掘Eagles組成的幕後推手 直至1973年與Asylum唱片公司簽約,並邀請Peter Asher出任經紀人並擔任監制後,事業開始攀上高風,連年奪獎,最大功勞應是她所有唱片的監制Peter Asher。Linda Ronstadt善長揀歌及重新演繹別人的歌,例如這首61年的作品便放在77年的Simple Dreams大碟裡,被她發揮得淋漓盡致的~




Blue Bayou(written by Roy Orbison and Joe Melson)


I feel so bad I got a worried mind
I'm so lonesome all the time
Since I left my baby behind On Blue Bayou Saving nickles saving dimes
Working til the sun don't shine
Looking forward to happier times On Blue Bayou I'm going back someday
Come what mayTo Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine And the world is mine
On Blue Bayou
Where those fishing boats With their sails afloat
If I could only see That familiar sunrise
Through sleepy eyes How happy I'd be Gonna see my baby again
Gonna be with some of my friends
Maybe I'll feel better again On Blue Bayou Saving nickles saving dimes
Working til the sun don't shine
Looking forward the happier times
On Blue Bayou I'm going back someday
Come what may To Blue Bayou
Where the folks are fine
And the world is mine On Blue Bayou
Where those fishing boatsWith their sails afloat
If I could only see That familiar sunrise
Through sleepy eyes How happy I'd be Oh that boy of mine By my side
The silver moon And the evening tide
Oh some sweet day Gonna take away
This hurting inside
Well I'll never be blue
My dreams come true On Blue Bayou

Hasten Down The Wind
She tells him she thinks she wants to be free
He tells her he doesn't understand
She takes his hand
And tells him nothing's working out the way she planned
She's so many women
He can't find the one who was his friend
He's hanging on to half a heart
But he can't have the restless part
So he tells her to hasten down the wind
Now he agrees he thinks she ought to be free
Now she says she'd rather be with him
Oh it's just a whim
That she's designed to keep him out there on that limb
She's so many women
He can't find the one who was his friend
He hanging on to half a heart
But he can't have the restless part
So he tells her to hasten down the wind
He tells her to hasten down the wind
He tells her to hasten down the wind

Someone To Lay Down Beside Me (77 Atlanta)
There's somebody waiting alone in the street
For someone to walk up and greet
Here you are all alone in the city
Where's the love that you took to your side
Lonely faces will stare through your eyes in the night
And they'll say -

woman sweet woman please come home with me
You're shining and willing and free
But your love it's a common occurence
Not like love that I feel in my heart
Still you know that may be what I need
Is someone to lay down beside me
And even though it's not real
Just someone to lay down beside me
You're the story of my life

Well morning is breaking the street lights are off
The sun will soon share all the cost
Of a world that can be sort of heartless
Not like love that I feel in my heart
Still you know that may be all you get
Is someone to lay down beside you
And even though it's not real
Just someone to lay down beside you You
just can't ask for ......more

Linda Ronstadt - Long Long Time
Love will abide, take things in stride
Sounds like good advice but there's no one at my side
And time washes clean love's wounds unseen
That's what someone told me but I don't know what it means.
Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I think I'm gonna love you for a long long time
Caught in my fears Blinking back the tears
I can't say you hurt me when you never let me near
And I never drew one response from you
All the while you fell all over girls you never knew
Cause I've done everything I know to try
and change you mine
And I think it's gonna hurt me for a long long time Wait for the day You'll go away
Knowing that you warned me of the price I'd have to pay
And life's full of flaws Who knows the cause?
Living in the memory of a love that never was
Cause I've done everything I know to try and change your mind
and I think I'm gonna miss you for a long long time
Cause I've done everything I know to try and make you mine
And I think I'm gonna love you for a long long time.

Lo Siento Mi Vida
Linda Ronstadt於76年在 hasten down the wind 專輯面,收錄這首墨西歌民謠~ Lo Siento Mi Vida,這與她的家族大有關係,雖然Linda出生於美國,但自幼受到家庭的影响(上兩代是從墨西哥移民),尤以父親的感染最重,流著墨西哥血液的Linda後來透露自己的夢想,就事從事舞台劇歌唱事業,早年因經濟問題而轉向流行樂發展;所以自80s後她已開始朝向自己的夢進發,終於在另一平台取得很好的成就,於2008年秋天更獲頒發ALMA (American Latino Media Arts) Awards。下面便是頒獎禮的片段:
