懷念MJ陸:Black or White



Black or White是1991年邁克《Dangerous》專輯的首發單曲。
這張單曲,一推出就理所當然的風靡全球(邁克的專輯不暢銷才是異數,如《Invincible》)。
Black or White一推出即拿下英國榜冠軍,接著在一周也也為邁克奪回失去了一周的美國銷售榜冠軍,更創歷史的在冠軍位置上停留了7周之久。

1862年9月22日,美利堅合眾國的偉大總統--亞伯拉罕林肯先生頒布了“解放黑奴宣言”。
這一歷史性的宣言,在法理上解除了黑人白人不平等的現象,實現了平等·自由的美利堅精神。

但,可悲的是在幾十甚至過百年之后,在美國,歧視黑人依然。
白人至上的思維依然普遍存在于美國社會當中。

1991年11月發行的Black or White講述的就是這一個種族及膚色問題。
邁克在這首歌曲給大家立下了一個很好的典范:該如何去討論種族課題?
不需要七情上面,不需要七孔生煙更不需要四處叫囂;
MJ在這首歌里并沒有因為那些不平等的待遇而表露出極端的憤慨。
雖然他在歌詞內有提到這些事實,但是他卻選擇使用還不沉悶不嚴肅的方式,以輕快的節奏來帶出這些事實。

在這首歌的MV里,MJ完全以小孩為主角。
MJ愛小孩的個性完全表露無遺。
而在結尾部分,由黑豹化身成的MJ動作敏捷的大展舞步,最后在化身成黑豹逃走。
算是回應了當時有人說MJ的舞步比黑豹還迅捷的形容!

“不管是黑或白,你依然是我的爱人”一样!

Black or White

I took my baby on a saturday bang
boy is that girl with you
yes we're one and the same
Now i believe in miracles and a miracle
has happened tonight
but if you're thinkin' about my baby
it don't matter if you're black or white
they print my message in the saturday sun
i had to tell them i ain't secound to none
and i told about equality and it's true
either you're wrong or you're right
but if you're thinkin' about my baby
it don't matter if you're black or white

I am tired of this devil
i am tired of this stuff
i am tired of this business
sew when the going gets rough
i ain't scared of your brother
i ain't scared of no sheets
i ain't scared of nobody
girl when the goin' gets mean

Protection for gangs clubs and nations
causing grief in human relations
it's a turf war on a global scale
i'd rather hear both sides of the tale
see it's not about races just places faces
where your blood comes from is where your space is
i've seen the bright get duller
i'm not going to spend my life being a color
don't tell me you agree with me when i saw you
kicking dirt in my eye
but if you're thinkin' about my baby
it don't matter if you're black or white
i said if you're thinkin' of being my baby
it don't matter if you're black or white
i said if you're thinkin' of being my baby
it don't matter if you're black or white

Ooh ooh yea yea yea now
ooh ooh yea yea yea now

It's black it's white
it's tough for them to get by
it's black it's white
it's black it's white
it's tough for them to get by
it's black it's white whoo

你也未免太怀念他了吧?

怎么界定“太”呢?
除了懷念,我也趁機介紹也邁克的歌曲。
一舉多得。

過去六天生了一場大病。
今天會繼續寫回邁克紀念文章。

請問開頭的那段配樂,他老爸叫他關掉的那段,那一段有完整的嗎?

~aNG~伟翔 said...

應該每一首都有啊(不管是youtube的還是cd的還是網絡mp3),這個開頭音樂其實沒什么特別,只是小孩子把音樂開得很大聲,結果被老爸罵,小孩子生氣之下,化身音樂超人,直接用音樂把老爸給炸出家里!!
