英國實力歌手[羅伯帕瑪]&美國靈魂樂歌手[馬文蓋]的交集──流行/靈魂/輕爵士──[Mercy Mercy MeI Want You*憐憫我/我要你]

Oh, oh mercy, mercy me

Oh, things aint what they used to be

No, no

Where did all the blue skies go?

Poison is the wind

That blows from the north, west, south and east

Oh, oh mercy, mercy me

Oh, things aint what they used to be

No, no

Oil wasted on the oceans and our seas

Fish full of mercury

Oh, oh mercy, mercy me

Oh, things aint what they used to be

No, no

Radiation underground and in the sky

Animals and birds who live nearby are dying

Oh, oh mercy, mercy me

Oh, things aint what they used to be

No, no

What about this over-crowded land

How much more abuse from man can she stand?

I want you

The right way

I want you

But I want you to want me too

Said I want you to love me

Just like I want you

Oh, Ill give you all the love

You want in return sweet darlin

Your happiness is all I crave

Ooh, its too bad - its just too sad

You dont want me now

But Im gonna change

Your mind someway, somehow, baby

I want you

The right way

I want you

But I want you to want me too

Said I want you to love me

Just like I want you

A one way love is just fantasy

Oh, sugar

To share is precious pure and fair, ooh

Dont play with something

You should cherish for your life, baby

Dont you want to care?

Lonely?

Im there

 

1990年11月 41歲半的英國歌手羅伯帕瑪(Robert Palmer)發行第十張大碟[Dont Explain](EMI USA出版)

由他本人與美國的Teo Macero製作,

融合白人靈魂, R&B, 流行搖滾, 雷鬼等曲風, 樂評好壞兩極

首支國際主打[Ill Be Your Baby Tonight]登上英國榜#6(美國未發行)

第二主打/美國第一單曲[Youre Amazing]登上美國榜#26(英國未發行)

 

1991年初, 羅伯推出第三主打(英美第二單曲)[Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology) / I Want You

這是將美國靈魂樂歌手馬文蓋(Marvi Gaye)兩首名曲結合起來的融合曲(前者1971年發行, US#4 , 後者1976年發行, US#15

前者作者是馬文蓋, 後者作者是    Leon Ware , Arthur "T-Boy" Ross

帕瑪與Teo Macero將其製作成一首融合流行/靈魂/輕爵士的歌曲

 

節拍輕快, 羅伯的詮釋也賦予歌曲不同馬文蓋的風情

Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)I Want You*憐憫我/我要你]登上英國單曲榜#9 

美國單曲榜#16 副榜-成人當代榜#4

加拿大#6 法國#7 愛爾蘭#8 德國/紐西蘭#33

在兩首Top10熱門曲的助益下, Dont Explain]打進英國專輯榜#9──為羅伯事業第二張UK Top10大碟 拿到金唱片

但美國單曲表現不如上前兩張大碟, 只登上Billboard專輯榜#88 成為帊瑪在北美事業下華的開始

儘管如此, Mercy Mercy MeI Want You]仍是羅伯的翻唱佳作之一
