Swing Jazz歌曲分享系列之十二 In The Mood

In The Mood 歌曲介紹

       In The Mood由Joe Garland創作,並由Andy Razaf填詞。並在1939年將歌曲版權賣給Glenn Miller,由所屬的爵士大樂隊創作與錄製,歌曲一推出便受到樂迷樂列的歡迎,1940年更高居當時音樂榜冠軍長達13週,那時應該也還沒有買榜文化!

       In The Mood的歷史相當輝煌,下面簡單描述它的成就,在1983年入選葛萊美名人堂;1999年美國國家廣播電台評選In The Mood為上一世紀最重要的100首音樂作品之一;2004年被美國圖書館列入兼具歷史文化每學的一代名曲。足以可見這首歌的份量與具備代表Swing時代的國歌級存在。而Glenn Miller能被後世譽為King of Swing Jazz與In The Mood的成就有著密不可分的關係。

In The Mood 歌詞

歌詞共有兩種版本,第一種版本是目前最常聽到的有歌詞版In The Mood,由Andrews Sisters所唱,因為歌詞實在太芭樂了,所以作者只翻第二種版本。聽到第一類的這種歌詞總會讓作者想到一張圖,作者很喜歡的一首老情歌” Right Here Waiting”,然後再看一下他隔壁的那首歌” Baby “,你就會發現Baby這首歌的歌詞真他X的跟X一樣,然後再看作詞者和人數……….,你就懂作者在說什麼了。

Mr. Whatchacallim, whatcha doin’ tonight?
Hope you’re in the mood, because I’m feelin’ just right!

How’s about a corner with a table for two?
Where the music’s mellow and some gay rendezvous!
There’s no chance romancin’ with a blue attitude!
You’ve got to do some dancin’ to get in the mood!

Sister Whatchacallim that’s a timely idea!
Something swing-a-dilla would be good to my ear!
Everybody must agree that dancin’ has charms
When you have that certain one you love in your arms!

Steppin’ out with you will be a sweet interlude!
Oh build’er up for that would put me in the mood!

In the mood!
That’s it!
I got it!

In the mood!
Your ear will spot it!

In the mood!
Oh what a hot hit!

Be alive
And get the jive
You’ve got to learn how!

Hep-hep-hep!
Hep like a hepper!

Pep-pep-pep!
Hot as a pepper!

Step-step-step!
Step like a stepper!

From muggin’ to huggin’
We’re in the mood now!

Mr. Watchacallim, All you needed was fun!
You can see the wonders that this evening has done!
Your feet were so heavy, till they hardly could move!
Now they’re light as feathers and you’re right in the groove!
You were only hungry for some musical food!
You’re positively absolutely in the mood!

Sister watchacallim, I’m indebted to you!
It all goes to show what good a new hit could do!
Never felt so happy and so fully alive!
It seems that jammin’ jumpin’ is a powerful jive!
Swing-a-roo has given me a new attitude!
My heart is full of rhythm and I’m in the mood!

In the mood!
That’s it!
‘Cause I got it!

And I’m–

In the mood!
Your ear will spot it!

When you’re–

In the mood!

Babababadilibidibababobo

Be alive
And get the jive
You’ve got to learn how!

Hep-hep-hep!
You’re Hep like a hepper!

Full of–

Pep-pep-pep!
You’re hot as a pepper!

And you Step-step-step!
Step, step like a stepper!

From muggin’
And now we’re huggin’
‘Cause we’re in the mood!

Who’s the lovin’ daddy with the beautiful eyes

I’ll just tell him, “Baby, won’t you swing it with me”

There’s a mess of moonlight, won’t-cha share it with me”

“Well” he answered “Baby, don’t-cha know that it’s rude
好吧,他答道,寶貝,你還是不要知道,因為它將非常狂野

To keep my two lips waitin’ when they’re in the mood”
在這氛圍下我的嘴唇已按耐不住
In the mood, that’s what he told me
在這浪漫的氣氛下,他對我說

In the mood, and when he told me
在這美好的氣氛下,他想告訴我

In the mood, my heart was skippin’
