英國蘇格蘭紅髮美女[席娜伊斯頓]──流行抒情曲──[I Wouldn’t Beg for Water/我不會向水乞求]

 

 

I make friends, I make enemies,
it doesn't matter all that much to me
I'm not the kind who deals behind the scenes
I won't sell my soul,
I'd be nothing without some integrity

[Chorus]
I wouldn't beg for water, I wouldn't beg for water
If my soul was on fire,
that's the last thing I would ever do
I wouldn't beg for water, I wouldn't beg for water
If my soul was on fire,
but I'd get down on my knees for you

I've got pride, it's not the foolish kind
Don't owe people favours, that's my peace of mind
I don't know why I deserve someone like you
But you're my one and only sole exception
to all my rules

[Chorus]

Real love is hard to find,
as holding back the sands of time
And time can change my life as much as you

I wouldn't beg for water, I wouldn't beg for water
If my soul was on fire,
you know me well enough to know it's true
I wouldn't beg for water, I wouldn't beg for water
(If my soul was on fire),
but I'd get down on my knees for you

1982年9月 23歲的英國蘇格蘭紅髮歌手席娜伊斯頓(Sheena Easton)發行第三張專輯[Madness, Money and Music] 仍由捧紅她的製作人Christopher Neil掌舵

在英美反應不佳 創下出道以來排行榜最低名次紀錄(UK#44, US#85

還好日本銷售依舊良好 登上#5 並拿下金唱片

北歐表現也不差

 

1982年底 席娜在美國推出專輯第三(or 第四)主打[I Wouldn’y Beg for Water/我不會向水乞求]

Christopher Neil將其製作成一首溫婉動人的流行抒情曲

在伊斯頓剔透嗓音娓娓的詮釋下, 與一年多前的When He Shines]有異曲同工之妙

I Wouldn’y Beg for Water]登上美國單曲榜#64 成人抒情榜#19

成為這張大碟第二首入榜歌曲

雖然此曲並非特有名, 但卻展現出早期席娜出色的歌場演繹功力
