Aretha FranklinRespect

一首振奮人心的歌,心情低潮時聽超適合!

 

最近看Glee(歡樂合唱團)pilot時,

又聽到了,趕緊拿出來再聽一次~ 

記得BJ單身日記(Bridget Jones's Diary)裡也用了這首歌,

來描述女主角和上司Daniel的戀情,

後來Bridget打包走人時,瀟灑帶勁的模樣,

配上歌詞裡頭的R-E-S-P-E-C-T,真是太搭啦!

 

會知道Aretha Franklin,是在iTune網站看到Mariah CareyiPod裡收著Aretha的歌,

我想,咪咪天后愛的歌手,該會是怎樣的驚人藝業?

一聽之下果然大為傾倒,任何時候聽都好聽。

 

 

以下是Respect的歌詞:

(oo) What you want
(oo) Baby, I got
(oo) What you need
(oo) Do you know I got it?
(oo) All I'm askin'
(oo) Is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit)
Hey baby (just a little bit) when you get home
(just a little bit) mister (just a little bit)

I ain't gonna do you wrong while you're gone
Ain't gonna do you wrong (oo) 'cause I don't wanna (oo)
All I'm askin' (oo)
Is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit)
Baby (just a little bit) when you get home (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

I'm about to give you all of my money
And all I'm askin' in return, honey
Is to give me my profits
When you get home (just a, just a, just a, just a)
Yeah baby (just a, just a, just a, just a)
When you get home (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

------ instrumental break ------

Ooo, your kisses (oo)
Sweeter than honey (oo)
And guess what? (oo)
So is my money (oo)
All I want you to do (oo) for me
Is give it to me when you get home (re, re, re ,re)
Yeah baby (re, re, re ,re)
Whip it to me (respect, just a little bit)
When you get home, now (just a little bit)

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Find out what it means to me
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Take care, TCB

Oh (sock it to me, sock it to me,
sock it to me, sock it to me)
A little respect (sock it to me, sock it to me,
sock it to me, sock it to me)
Whoa, babe (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit)
I get tired (just a little bit)
Keep on tryin' (just a little bit)
You're runnin' out of foolin' (just a little bit)
And I ain't lyin' (just a little bit)
(re, re, re, re) 'spect
When you come home (re, re, re ,re)
Or you might walk in (respect, just a little bit)
And find out I'm gone (just a little bit)
I got to have (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit)

 

Aretha另有一首I Say a Little Prayer較廣為人知,

Julia Roberts主演的My Best Friend's Wedding也有用到這首歌。

奇妙的是,在Glee第二集裡,

也用了My Best Friend's Wedding裡也出現過的Wishin' And Hopin'呢~
