The New Seekers

圖片來自Michael叔叔

THE NEW SEEKERS在70年代pop music算是有點代表性,雖然經歷數度聚合,風格尚算統一,樂隊有自己的味道,一聽便知是The New Seekers的色彩。




1969年由Keith Potger(前THE SEEKERS成員)一手組成的THE NEW SEEKERS,只出了一張單曲細碟及一張大碟,Keith Potger便離開樂隊。
1970年由LYN PAUL,PETER DOYLE AND PAUL LAYTON.重組 THE SEEKERS,於1971年憑NEVER ENDINGSONG OF LOVE成功打入英國流行榜第2位;1974因LYN PAUL的離開又解散,然後於1976再重組。1980是THE SEEKERS最後上流行榜(排行21)的年代,往後的日子是在不完整的成員載浮載沉下,延續樂隊生涯;THE SEEKERS雖然未曾大紅大紫(70s西方樂壇百花齊放,競爭頗大),與榜上無緣,但銷售量卻突破350萬張,有好幾首歌曲至今都令人回味。

Never Ending Song Of Love (1971)

I've got a never-ending love for you
From now on that's all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have a never-ending love for you

I've got a never-ending love for you
From now on that's all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd have a never-ending love for you

After all this time of bein' alone
We can love one another, give for each other
From now on (rest)
It's so good I can hardly stand it

Never-ending love for you
From now on that's all I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd sing my never-ending song of love for you


After all this time of bein' alone
We can love one another, live for each other
From now on (rest)
It's so good I can hardly stand it

Never-ending love for you
From now on that's al I want to do
From the first time we met I knew
I'd sing my never-ending song of love for you

I've got a never-ending love for you
From now on that's all I want to do

I get a little sentimental (1974 )



Honey, though I think about you day and night
I gotta say I'm still alright
But when I'm here without you by the soft fire glow
I hear the golden oldies on the radio
Well I can't hide the moment when
The mood inside me changes

Then I get a little sentimental when they play
That old love song we sang back then
I hold back the tears until the music's through
Then I get a little sentimental over you

Like a fool I find those old love letters
And I read every line (I read every line)
Oh I know you would laugh
But I was born the sentimental kiind

Honey, there's a hundred crazy things I do
To keep myself from missing you
But when I sit alone and watch the late night show
And someone in the movie says I love you so
Well I can't hide the feeling when
The mood inside me changes

Then I get a little sentimental when they say
The same old words we said back then
So I hold back the tears until the movie's through
Then I get a little sentimental over you

La-la-la-la-la-la, La-la-la-la-la-la

I got a funny feelin' that there'll come a day
That you will change your mind and come home to say
Then you and I will close the door
And by the fireside like before

We'll get a little sentimental when they play
The same old songs we sang back then
Oh when you hold me tight and say you want me too
I'll get a little sentimental over you
Oh-oh-oh-oh, I'll get a little sentimental over you
Oh-oh-oh-oh, I'll get a little...........

Beg, Steal Or Borrow


You know I'll beg, steal or borrow
I'll bring you love

I look at you and I see what I've been looking for
Now it's very clear to me - we should be together

You make me feel I could reach for the impossible
And knowing how much you care, I'll be there forever

You know I'll beg steal or borrow
To give you sunny days
And in a hundred ways, I'll bring you love
You know I'll beg, steal or borrow
(Yes, I will)
To make your garden grow
And most of all you know, I'll bring you love
Love

I always knew that the world could be a finer place
So what if I have to wait - better late than never

You, you're like me, and you believe love makes it all worthwhile
And although we've just begun, we'll go on forever

You know I'll beg steal or borrow
To give you sunny days
And in a hundred ways, I'll bring you love
You know I'll beg, steal or borrow
To make your garden grow
And most of all you know, I'll bring you love, yeah
Love

You know I'll beg steal or borrow
To give you sunny days
And in a hundred ways, I'll bring you love, love, love, yeah
Love, love, love

I'd Like ToTeach The World To Sing


Id like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
I'd like to hold it in my arms and keep it company

I'd like to see the world for once
All standing hand in hand
And hear them echo through the hills "Ah, peace throughout the land"

(That's the song I hear)
I'd like to teach the world to sing (that the world sings today)
In perfect harmony

I'd like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony

Id like to build the world a home
And furnish it with love
Grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves

Look What They've Done To My Song, Ma


Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song
Well it's the only thing I could do half right
And it's turning out all wrong
Look what they've done to my song

Wish I could find a good book to live in
Wish I could find a good book
Well,if i could find a real good book
I'd never have to come out and
Look what they've done to my song

Look what they've done to my brain, Ma
Look what they've done to my brain
Well they've cook it like a chicken bone
I think I'm half insane, Ma
Look what they've done to my brain

********************

Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Well they've tied it up in a plastic bag
Then turned it upside down
Look what they've done to my song

La, la, la, la...
Well it's the only thing I could do half right
And it's turning out all wrong Oh Mama
Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Oh Mama

The Greatest Song I've Ever Heard (1973)


Now, the greenest green I've ever seen, was the grass on which you lay,
and the bluest blue was in my eyes, when you said you couldn't stay,
and the biggest loss I ever took was, losing what we'd begun,
and the greatest song I've ever heard, was the one we never sung.

Now, the reddest red, I've always said, is the sunset coming down,
soon the blackest night that kills the light, is the only thing around.
And the downest down I've ever been was, when I knew my race was run,
and the greatest song I've ever heard was the one we never sung.

Time will keep the pain, they say, and we'll live to love another day,
if you want to win, you've got to play the game.

Now, the greyest grey came on the day, we were standing in the rain,
and the hardest hurt I've ever known, was when you tried to ease the pain,
and the longest day in history is waiting till my crying's done,
and the greatest song I've ever heard was the one we never sung.

And the saddest song I've ever heard was the one we fin'lly sung.
