Still Crazy After All These Years

  "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover"收錄於Paul Simon在1975年發行的專輯"Still Crazy After All These Years"中,並找來了筆者最愛的Patti Austin,還有Valenrie Simpson以及Phoebe Snow擔任合音。

 

  這支單曲在1975年底發行,隔年2月7日登上美國單曲榜冠軍,共在冠軍位置停留三週,是首非常暢銷的歌曲,也是Paul Simon唯一一首美國單曲榜冠軍單曲。Paul Simon在結束第一段婚姻關係時寫下"50 Ways To Leave Your Lover"這首歌,歌詞中以幽默的方式暢言如何結束一段感情關係,非常的耐人尋味。

 

  這支單曲有相當多的重唱版本,其中白人靈魂女伶Rosemary Clooney也曾將此曲收錄於1977年專輯"Nice To Be Around"中,Rosemary其嗓音磁性柔美,帶點爵士味的詮釋,與Paul幽默風趣的唱法有所差異,各自獨樹一格。

 

  2005年時有出現一個舞曲版本,收錄在DJ Mister Smith的專輯"Cosmos Vol. Essence"之中,Vocal部分由加拿大靈魂女歌手Dessy Di Lauro負責,Funky Soul House的風格呈現出有別於原曲的性感風味,也是首相當不錯的重唱版本。

Lyrics:

"The problem is all inside your head", she said to me
The answer is easy if you take it logically
I'd like to help you in your struggle to be free
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover

She said it's really not my habit to intrude
Furthermore, I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued
But I'll repeat myself, at the risk of being crude
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover
Fifty ways to leave your lover

You just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free

Ooo slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just listen to me
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free

She said it grieves me so to see you in such pain
I wish there was something I could do to make you smile again
I said I appreciate that and would you please explain
About the fifty ways

She said why don't we both just sleep on it tonight
And I believe in the morning you'll begin to see the light
And then she kissed me and I realized she probably was right
There must be fifty ways to leave your lover
Fifty ways to leave your lover

You just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
and get yourself free

Slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just listen to me
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free
