英國電子流行團體[強尼恨爵士]──電子流行佳作──反戰意識的[I Don't Want to Be a Hero/我不想成為英雄]

 

 

Oh, send me off to war

With a gun in my hand

But I won't pull the trigger

Our destiny is here

Beneath the red, white and blue

So lead me to the slaughter

 

Now don't be afraid

Come and join the parade

For the ultimate in sacrifice

It's an old-fashioned story

 

Of hope and of glory

A ticket for taking a life

 

[Chorus:]

I, I don't want to be a hero

I don't want to die for you

I don't want to be a hero

 

Oh send me off to war

In a far away land

I never knew existed

Subject me to the truth

To the horror and pain

Until my mind is twisted

 

And what if I fail

Will you put me in jail

For a murder I will not commit?

'Cause you don't understand

Till there's blood on your hands

That it's time to forget and forgive

 

[Chorus]

 

And those who return

Come back only to learn

That they're hated by those who they love

'Cause you don't understand

Till there's blood on your hands

That it's time to forget and forgive

 

[Chorus]

1986年出道的強尼恨爵士(Johnny Hates Jazz)是英國80年代末期走紅的電子精緻流行團體

1987年春天以第二支單曲是[Shattered Dreams〕登上英國單曲榜#5 一舉成名

Virgin唱片公司乘勝追擊 在1987年8月推出第三單曲[I Don't Want to Be a Hero/我不想成為英雄]也拿到英倫榜#11

此曲由主唱Clark Datchler譜寫, 是首反戰歌曲

其他兩名團員製作成一首融合Sophicati-Pop Funky節拍的電子流行歌曲

I Don't Want to Be a Hero]登上英國單曲榜#11, 鞏固強尼恨爵士當時的聲勢

此曲後來收在1988年1月推出的首張冠軍專輯[Turn Back The Clock/倒轉時鐘](雙白金), 成為其第三首主打。

 

I Don't Want to Be a Hero]在歐洲也受到一定程度歡迎:瑞典#10 義大利#11 瑞士#12 比利時/愛爾蘭#13 加拿大#16 德國#17 奧地利#22 荷蘭#25

至於美國的出版公司原本猶豫是否該主打這首反戰意識歌曲

1988年8月發行後 登上Billboard單曲榜31 成人抒情榜#15 舞曲播放榜#19

反應不錯

1988年 日本偶像歌手長山洋子將其翻唱成較為抒情的日語版[反逆のヒーロー](Oricon#10)

這是強尼恨爵士點暫音樂事業的代表作之一
