The Carpenters 「(They Long to Be) Close to You」


The Carpenters於1970年發行的歌曲。
其實這首「(They Long To Be) Close To You」是一首翻唱曲,
原先兩兄妹對於這首歌興趣缺缺,是在唱片公司老闆(?)的堅持下才改編翻唱的,
沒想到這首歌卻讓先前在首張專輯中翻唱了披頭四「Ticket to Ride」而剛開始小具知名度的The Carpenters一夕之間爆紅~

一直很喜歡這首歌,大概可以列入我個人的The Carpenters Best 5吧?
另外也被我擅自列為"最適合祝賀生日的歌曲"之一... (^.^*)

  

 




(They Long To Be) Close To You
Lyrics & Music:Burt Bacharach/Hal David

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.


On the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue.


That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around.
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.


On the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue.


That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around.
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.
Just like me (Just like me)
They long to be
Close to you.


Wahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you...
Wahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you...
Hahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you...
Lahhhhhhhhhhh, close to you...

  • 我也超愛卡本特的,妹妹的歌聲好透明,無雜質,聽起來全身舒暢,他們真的很經典ㄝ!
  • 唉呀最近常懶得check email、又很少注意自己家,
    差點錯過小珍妮的留言!!(汗)

    雖然卡本特從小聽到大、但其實手邊一直都只有精選輯之類的,
    總覺得一定還有很多"隠れた名曲"不曉得躲在哪兒!
    像Simon & Garfunkel就是這樣,小時候聽來聽去就都只熟那十幾首,
    等長大後自己把他們全部的錄音室專輯買回家、
    才發現還有好多讓我覺得相見恨晚的好歌啊啊啊~~~<(T3T)>
    如果能有數位重新處理過的(然後價格便宜的XD)卡本特復刻盤、還蠻希望能夠收專輯的說...
