美國實力歌姬[狄昂.華薇克]──流行靈魂/傳統流行抒情曲──[A House is Not a Home/房子並不等於家]

A chair is still a chair

Even when theres no-one sitting there

But a chair is not a house

And a house is not a home

When theres no-one there to hold you tight

And no-one there you can kiss goodnight

A room is still a room

Even when theres nothing there but gloom

But a room is not a house

And a house is not a home

When the two of us are far apart

And one of us has a broken heart

Now and then I call your name

And suddenly your voice appears

But its just a crazy game

When it ends, it ends in tears

Darling, have a heart

Dont let one mistake keep us apart

Im not meant to live alone

Turn this house into a home

When I climb the stairs

And turn the key

Oh, please be there

Still in love with me

Im not meant to live alone

Turn this house into a home

When I climb the stairs

And turn the key

Oh, please be there

Still in love with me

 

 

1964年8月 23歲半的美國黑人流行歌姬狄昂華薇克(Dionne Warwick)發行第三張大碟[Make Way for Dionne Warwick

由音樂導師Burt Bacharach, Hal David主要譜寫, 並全權製作,獲得不錯評價

成為她首張打入Billboard的專輯(流行榜#68 R&B#10)

首支主打[Walk On By]登上Billboard單曲榜#6(副榜-R&B榜稱后) 英國#9

1964年8月推出的第二主打[Youll Never Get to Heaven (If You Break My Heart)]拿到美國單曲榜#34 英國榜#20

B面歌曲──[A House is Not a Home/房子並不等於家]為Burt Bacharach, Hal David替同名電影[莎莉溫特絲(Shelly Winters)+勞勃泰勒(Robert Taylor)主演]譜寫的主題曲

並製作成一首流行靈魂/傳統流行抒情曲

在溫柔的樂聲中, 狄昂的演繹細膩深情

出不多同時間, 美國非裔男歌手Brook Benton也灌錄此曲──此版出現在同名電影中, 幾乎一起發行。

這瓜分了華薇克版的電台播放率, 讓她只拿到Billboard單曲榜#71 

Brook Benton版則升到單曲榜#75

華薇克版另拿到加拿大單曲榜#37

在歐洲某些地區, 直接以A面單曲發行。

 

雖然[A House is Not a Home]成績普通, 但後來被許多歌手翻唱, 因而被大眾熟知

其中較著名的版本是1981年路瑟范德羅斯(Luther Vandross)的詮釋

至於狄昂的演繹也成為她的名曲之一。
