美國靈魂樂家族團體[葛蕾蒂絲奈特&種子]──放克靈魂經典──[I Heard It Through the Grapevine/我聽說它經過葡萄園]

 

I bet you're wonderin' how I knew

'Bout your plans to make me blue

With some other guy you knew before

Between the two of us guys

You know I loved you more

It took me by surprise I must say

When I found out yesterday

Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine

Not much longer would you be mine

Oh I heard it through the grapevine

Oh I'm just about to lose my mind

 

Honey, honey yeah.

I heard it through the grapevine

Not much longer would you be mine baby

 

I know a man ain't supposed to cry

But these tears I can't hold inside

Losin' you would end my life you see

'Cause you mean that much to me

You could have told me yourself

That you loved some one else

Instead I heard it through the grapevine

Not much longer would you be mine

Oh, I heard it through the grapevine

And I'm just about to lose my mind

 

Honey, honey yeah

I heard it through the grapevine

Not much longer would you be mine, baby

 

People say believe half of what you see

Son and none of what you hear

But I can't help but be confused

If it's true please tell me dear

Do you plan to let me go

For the other guy you loved before?

 

Don't you know I heard it through the grapevine

Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah

I heard it through the grapevine

I'm just about to love my mind

Honey, honey, yeah

I heard it through the grapevine,

Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah

1952年成軍於喬治亞州亞特蘭大城的美國靈魂樂家族團體葛蕾蒂絲奈特&種子(Gladys KnightThe Pips)在1961年以[Every Beat of My Heart](Pop#6,R&B#1)走紅

成為R&B界的巨星

 

1966年 葛蕾蒂絲奈特&種子與Motown唱片旗下的以節奏藍調市場為主的Soul公司簽約

陸續發行三首單曲

1967年6月 葛蕾蒂絲奈特&種子推出第四首單曲[I Heard It Through the Grapevine/我聽說它經過葡萄園]

此曲由製作人Norman Whitfield Barrett Strong 譜寫

前者在聽過Aretha Franklin的[Respect]後, 在編曲加入Funk的節拍

配上葛蕾蒂絲的渾厚嗓音, 讓這首靈魂歌曲更具魅力

I Heard It Through the Grapevine]發行後, 唱片公司並不怎麼支持

The Pips靠著跟DJ的關係, 讓他們播放此曲

登上美國Billboard單曲榜亞軍  R&B榜冠軍  拿到金唱片

賣出250萬張 一度成為Motown公司最暢銷的單曲 

1968年 馬文蓋(Marvin Gaye)翻唱此曲  結果登上美國單曲榜冠軍  R&B榜冠軍 並賣出四百萬張 超越耐特版本 成為Motown公司最暢銷的單曲

讓葛蕾蒂絲有點不悅

 

I Heard It Through the Grapevine]是葛蕾蒂絲奈特&種子的事業突破歌曲

收在1967年9月發行 他們的正式首張大碟[Everybody Nees Love]中, 成為其第四單曲

雖然現在大家熟悉的多半是馬文蓋的版本

但葛蕾蒂絲奈特&種子的原本也是相當具有特色的
