Snapshots from my record rounds

Last weekend Lorri and I agreed to spend Saturday thrifting.  For Lorri it’s an important part of her side business, for me it’s a way to seek out cheap vinyl.  935 more words

I Will Always Love You(下)

聰叔叔:  聰叔叔與炯叔叔温叔叔識於微時,一起吃喝玩樂多年。中學後分道揚鑣勇闖美國加拿大英國,廿年後再聚首一堂。喜歡懷舊,但也樂於接受新事物;喜歡80年代音樂,但也不抗拒新時代音樂,因為不想變成一件老餅。

上回談到很多人並不了解”I Will Always Love You”這首歌的真正內容而用在不適合的場合上,據聞薩達姆‧侯賽因 (Saddam Hussein) 也有類似的錯誤經驗,在2002年他用了阿拉伯語版本的”I Will Always Love You”作為他競選連任伊拉克總统的宣傳歌。明顯地,他並不知道這是一首「散水」歌。而Dolly Parton也沒有得到她應得的版權費。

在1974年當Dolly Parton的”I Will Always Love You”得到Billboard Hot Country Songs冠軍後,Elvis Presley表示很有興趣翻唱這首歌。當他的經理人和Dolly Parton傾談合作條件時要求擁有此曲的50%版權,如此苛刻要求即時遭到Dolly的拒絕。雖然失去一次和”貓王”合作的機會可能有點可惜,但在十多年後証明了這是一個非常英明的決定。 148 more words
