很久没有痛快听音乐了。今天想听点电子舞曲。于是找出了PET SHOP BOYS的DVD,曾经收过PSB的CD sets。但找不到了。好在我喜欢的CD当年都买了两套,另一套没有拆封的还在。于是用照相机拍下留念,然后拆听。用我的比较独特的U2 IPOD作为我的照片签名。

CD 套装的内容更加丰富

总共包含了3张CD,两张O版的,一张REMIX版的,包装设计水准一流。当年350一套,咬牙买了两套,其中一套拆了以后还到电台做了节目,只放了两首。GO WEST 和DOMINO DANCING。(其实我很喜欢的还有 you are always on my mind)

现在要灌到IPOD里去了。

在我的大学时代,买过磁带,也是PET SHOP BOYS的。里面只有很少的六首歌曲(AB面各三首,但非常棒),是进口原版的哦。现在在书房柜子底,来不及找出来拍照片。专集里有我最喜欢的舞曲,DOMINO DANCING,那是我高中时代从收音机里听到,后来录下来的,一直不知道题目和乐队,但经过几年的寻找居然找到了,因为其中反复唱着DOMINO DANCING。 专集里另一首是翻唱的you are always on my mind.这是首老歌,我挺喜欢的。 我听过猫王的,也听过赵传的,都非常棒,但我最喜欢的还是PSB的。网上找了个CD版的封面,和磁带版不同,但也是彩条。那些音乐陪我度过了大学高年级多个出早操的岁月。都是听着DOMINO DANCING 跑完3千米的。这张我最早用有的PET SHOP BOYS的专集就是1988年著名的《Introspeetive》

1. Left To My Own Devices
2. I Want A Dog
3. Domino Dancing
4. I’m Not Scared
5. Always On My Mind/In My House
6. It’s Alright

06年的世界杯,每场结束都放一首曲子,坐在电视机前的我怎么也没想到在足球场上空回荡的居然是PET SHOP BOYS的《GO WEST》,而且每场结束都是同一首。可惜,国内知道和欣赏这首曲子的人太少。真没想到德国人那么喜欢PET SHOP BOYS。LESLIE说他最喜欢的乐队就是PET SHOP BOYS的。

以下资料给不熟悉PET SHOP BOYS的朋友。

Pet Shop Boys
“宠物店男孩” Pet Shop Boys

(看更多内容请点“more”)

八十年代微型电子音乐合成器的出现,使更多音乐人容易实现其表演或出版唱片的梦想。成立于1981年的“宠物店男孩”(PetShop Boys)可算得上是八十年代最后一支也是最成功的电子音乐组合。 Pet Shop Boys是一对天才的词曲合作者:尼尔·泰纳(Ne-il Tennant)和克里斯·洛(Chris Lowe),他们在出道15年中凭藉轻松快优美的旋律和流畅自然的曲风,赢得了众多乐迷的喜爱。
1985年,PSB聘Stephan Hague为唱片监制,以一曲《West End Girls》闯入法国和 比利时的单曲排列榜,结束了两年的守望期,一跃成为流行乐坛的新宠儿。 接着PSB又推出了《Love Comes Quickly》《Sabarbia》等好作品。1986年,PSB以《West End Girls》连获英、美排行榜的第一位;发行了首张专辑《Please》,突出自己将Disco和Pop揉合的独特风格,以重复迭宕的和声体现忧欢相随的情感。

1987年, PSB又推出了第二张专辑《Actually》,内容更加丰厚,二重和声运用更为成熟,而单曲《It’s A Sin》《It Couldn’t Happen Here》 也在流行榜上取得了骄人成绩。1988年,他们又发行了一张更为古怪精美的专辑《Introspeetive》,它熔合多元化的音乐风格,使PSB的顽皮形象推向了极至。其中,《What Have I Done To Deserve This?》充满了消极玩世的态度;而另一首《I Want A Dog》则以一阵沸沸扬扬的狗吠拉开序幕,极尽幽默顽皮之能事。1990年PSB的第四张专辑《Behaviour》是与Harold Fateneyer的合作成果,其中减少了民谣的味道,而以更现实更理性的方式表达强烈的个人理念。

到93年《Very》的推出又一次超越了PSB 先前的成绩,充分显示了他们作为流行音乐前沿斗士和舞曲情感缔造者的实力。1995年底,PSB又发行了一张B面歌曲精选集双CD《Alternative》,专辑纵跨他们从艺十年的经典作品,展现了流行舞曲的深度。PSB 的这对英国流行乐坛双璧以其实力屹立乐坛十年之久,确是瞬息万变的乐界的难得之例。随着时间的推移,PSB 应该会更加成熟,他们的音乐将会更具魅力。

Pet Shop Boys已经成了一个时代的象征,电子时代的换代必将淘汰无数人,而又催生无数新生力量。Trip-Hop、Techno、Trance、Rave、 Ambient,一代又一代年轻人陶醉在舞曲的节奏中,仿佛这节奏具有无穷的生命。作为电子流行乐的表表者,Pet Shop Boys无疑是八十年代相当重要的一个乐队:不过,PetShop Boys并没有在这煊目的时代迷失自己,两位成员无穷尽的创作才气造就了一首又一首的流行经典,在这个不断求变的乐坛,他们的成功也算得上是一个奇迹。

1986 年1月,带有催眠性质的歌West End Girls打上了英国排行榜,然后慢慢地爬上了英美两个国家的排行榜冠军位置。随后他们出版了第一张EP专辑 Please,其中 Love Comes Quickly、Suburbia 的接连上榜稳定了他们在排行榜上的位置。

1987年,乐队出版了专辑 Actually,这是他们销售巨大的专辑,受到了广泛欢迎。除了乐队翻唱 Stevens Cat 的歌曲It’s A Sin 登上了英国榜第一名之外,怀旧风格的 It Couldn’t Happen Here 也进入排行榜。乐队同 Springfield Dusty 合作的歌曲 What have I done to deserve this?再获成功,成为排行榜第二名。同年底,乐队翻唱 Presley ELVIS 的歌曲 Always on My Mind 再次成为英国榜冠军。

接着,I’m Not Scared 获得好评后,Heart 又成为乐队第4个英国榜冠军歌曲。一张更电子化的专辑 Introspective 包含了更广阔的音乐风景,包括重新混在的 Always on My Mind 和轻松明亮的 DominoDancing 等多首热门歌曲。1991年,乐队出版了最为优秀的精选唱片 Discography。

我喜欢的歌词

domino dancing

(tennant/lowe)
—————–
(all day, all day)

I dont know why, I dont know how
I thought I loved you, but Im not sure now
Ive seen you look at strangers too many times
A love-you-once is of a, a different kind

Remember when we felt the sun
A love like paradise, how hot it burned
A threat of distant thunder, the sky was red
And when you walked, you always – turned every head

(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day) domino dancing
(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day) domino dancing

I thought that when we fought I was to blame
But now I know you play a different game
Ive watched you dance with danger, still wanting more
Add another number to the score

(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day) domino dancing
(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day) domino dancing

When you look around you wonder
Do you play to win?
Or are you just a bad loser?

(all day, all day)
(all day, all day)

(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day, domino dancing)

(all day, all day)
(all day, all day)

I dont know why, I dont know how
Id thought I loved you, but Im not sure now
I hear the thunder crashing, the sky is dark
And now a storm is breaking within my heart

(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day) domino dancing
(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day, domino dancing)

(all day, all daeheheheheheheh)
(all day, all daeheheheheheheh)

(all day, all day)
(all day, all day)
(domino dancing)

(all day, all day)
(all day, all day)

(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day, domino dancing)

(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day) domino dancing
(all day, all day) watch them all fall down
(all day, all day)

GO WEST

(Morali/Belelo/Willis/Tennant/Lowe)
———–
Come on, come on, come on, come on

(Together) We will go our way
(Together) We will leave someday
(Together) Your hand in my hands
(Together) We will make our plans

(Together) We will fly so high
(Together) Tell all our friends goodbye
(Together) We will start life new
(Together) This is what we’ll do

(Go West) Life is peaceful there
(Go West) In the open air
(Go West) Where the skies are blue
(Go West) This is what we’re gonna do

(Go West, this is what we’re gonna do, Go West)

(Together) We will love the beach
(Together) We will learn and teach
(Together) Change our pace of life
(Together) We will work and strive

(I love you) I know you love me
(I want you) How could I disagree?
(So that’s why) I make no protest
(When you say) You will do the rest

(Go West) Life is peaceful there
(Go West) In the open air
(Go West) Baby you and me
(Go West) This is our destiny (Aah)

(Go West) Sun in wintertime
(Go West) We will do just fine
(Go West) Where the skies are blue
(Go West) this is what we’re gonna do

There where the air is free
We’ll be (We’ll be) what we want to be (Aah aah aah aah)
Now if we make a stand (Aah)
We’ll find (We’ll find) our promised land (Aah)

(I know that) There are many ways
(To live there) In the sun or shade
(Together) We will find a place
(To settle) Where there’s so much space

(Without rush) And the pace back east
(The hustling) Rustling just to feed
(I know I’m) Ready to leave too
(So that’s what) We are gonna do

(What we’re gonna do is
Go West) Life is peaceful there
(Go West) There in the open air
(Go West) Where the skies are blue
(Go West) This is what we’re gonna do

(Life is peaceful there)
Go West (In the open air)
Go West (Baby, you and me)
Go West (This is our destiny)

Come on, come on, come on, come on

(Go West) Sun in wintertime
(Go West) We will feel just fine
(Go West) Where the skies are blue
(Go West) This is what we’re gonna do

(Come on, come on, come on)
(Go West)

(Go West)
(Go, ooh, go, yeah)
(Go West)
(Go, ooh, go, yeah)
(Go West)
(Go, ooh, go, yeah)
(Go West)
(Go, ooh, go, yeah)
(Gimme a feelin’)
(Gimme a feelin’)
(Go West)
(Gimme a feelin’)
(Gimme a feelin’)
(Go West)
(Gimme a feelin’)
(Gimme a feelin’)

You were always on my mind
thompson/james/christopher)
——————–
Maybe I didnt treat you quite as good as I should
Maybe I didnt love you quite as often as I could
Little things I shouldve said and done, I never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didnt hold you all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you, Im so happy that youre mine
If I made you feel second best, Im so sorry, I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasnt died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
Satisfied

Little things I shouldve said and done, I never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasnt died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didnt treat you quite as good as I should
Maybe I didnt love you quite as often as I could
Maybe I didnt hold you all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you, Im so happy that youre mine
