女生只想尋開心

「呵,媽媽,女性生為不幸的一群,我們只想尋些開心,我們想開心……」
《迷藏》・亦舒

多久了?
廿年有餘了吧?
MTV很過時、舞姿很彆扭、造型也很老土。
但歌詞──噢,歌詞仍唱到我們心裡去。
建議將之加入通識教材,還要讓父母一起上課,呵呵呵。

我唸中學時已讀過歌手Cyndi Lauper的故事,多年來,記憶猶新。
懶寫了,請自己到連結那兒看。

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
I come home in the morning light,
My mother says "When you gonna live your life right?"
Oh,mother,dear,
We're not the fortunate ones,
And girls,
They wanna have fu-un.
Oh,girls,
Just wanna have fun.

The phone rings in the middle of the night,
My father yells "What you gonna do with your life?"
Oh,daddy,dear,
You know you're still number one,
But girls,
They wanna have fu-un,
Oh,girls,just wanna have
That's all they really want.....
Some fun....

When the working day is done,
Oh,girls,
They wanna have fu-un,
Oh,girls,
Just wanna have fun....

Girls,
They want,
Wanna have fun.
Girls,
Wanna have

Some boys take a beautiful girl,
And hide her away from the rest of the world.
I wanna be the one to walk in the sun.
Oh,girls,
They wanna have fu-un.
Oh,girls,
Just wanna have
That's all they really want.....
Some fun....

When the working day is done,
Oh,girls,
They wanna have fu-un.
Oh,girls,
Just wanna have fun...

Girls,
They want,
Wanna have fun.
Girls,
Wanna have.

They just wanna,
They just wanna.....
They just wanna,
(Oh....)
They just wanna.....
(Girls just wanna have fun...)
Oh...

Girls just wanna have fu-un...
They just wanna,
They just wanna....
They just wanna,
They just wanna....
(Oh...)
They just wanna...
(They just wanna have fun...)
Girls just wanna have fu-un...

When the workin',
When the working day is done.
Oh,when the working day is done,
Oh,girls...
Girls,
Just wanna have fu-un...

They just wanna,
They just wanna....
They just wanna,
They just wanna have fun...

Girls just wanna have fu-un..
They just wanna,
They just wanna....
They just wanna,
They just wanna....
(Have fun..)

They just wanna,
(Girls wanna have fun)
They just wanna....
Oh,girls...
(Wanna have fun....)
Girls just wanna have fu-un.

When the workin',
When the working day is done.
Oh,when the working day is done,
Oh,girls,
Girls just wanna have fu-un.

They just wanna,
They just wanna....
(Oh,girls...)
They just wanna,
(Have fun....)
Oh,girls..
Girls just wanna have fu-un

They just wanna,
They just wanna...
When the working day is done...

Oops ... When the working day is done , BOYs they wanna have fun TOO.

Taling 'bout Cyndi, how old are u during her golden days :-P. Her strange chicken voice is wierd, but listen another time just love her to death. She's just So Unusual.

leona said...

TinTin:
Yeah...boys & girls BOTH want to have fun after work!

Frankly, I haven't heard about Cyndi until I was around 15 or 16. There's an article about her in our Textbook.
Yeah, in a Textbook!
I think her voice is ok; quite unusual indeed.

Girls just wanna have fun...

even tade off 終老情真?

你竟提起Cyndi,真巧,其實我也想寫她。記得當年曾在台上扮過她,頭戴綠色假髮,一身奇裝異服,唱幾句girl just wanna have fun,結果全校震驚,哈哈。

我很喜歡她,喜歡她的前衛但不淫蕩,喜歡她的歌和她的歌聲,她音域廣闊,是天生的歌手,聲音不算甜美,但有性格。當年和幾十位頂級歌手一起錄音,在芸芸歌聲中,你也可以辨出她的歌聲。

李安(?)說,人人心中都有一座斷背山;其實,每個(正經)女孩心中都有一個Cyndi Lauper。

哈哈,每個正經女孩心中都有一個Cyndi Lauper <---這說法很正!

我就試過差不多同時期分別被兩個男生評為性格開放,但另一個卻說保守!

其實每個人都可以有很多不同面,或很多可多的可能性,只看是對著甚麼人做回那個自己吧

LEONA說的這首歌當年也是愛歌之一,但更喜歡另一首"TIME AFTER TIME",對當時讀書時代的我來說,已覺得是首頗為反叛的歌了.

readandeat said...

大頭女子:
跟你一樣,我其實更喜歡她那首《Time after time》,分別聽的話,你就肯定Cyndi是歌后。兩種截然不同風格和難唱的歌都唱得如此好。

Leona:
講開Cyndi讀的公立學校,其實那校一直以她為榮,向新生介紹時也提到Cyndi是本校校友。

tintinbright said...

除'Time after Time'外, 我也鍾愛 What's going on, Cyndi 與 Marvin Gaye 的版本都一樣的正!!

每次見人三心两意, 或盼望人回心轉意, 心中不期然響起 Change of Heart.

有空可到Youtube重温 :-)

VC:
女生只想尋開心,管它情真不情真。

讀與吃:
噢,真的嗎?那你快寫她的故事,快寫快寫,你在這裏寫了寥寥數句已把我吸引了。
還要把你當年扮她的相片貼在一塊兒的:)

“每個(正經)女孩心中都有一個Cyndi Lauper”
Um...諗落,又好似真係咁。
你說得對極了!

大頭妹(抱歉仍這樣稱呼你;我覺得很可愛呀):
我也喜歡Time after Time!
BTW,說你保守/開放的男生,可能對你的期望不一樣…嘻嘻。

TinTin:
Time after Time, What's going on, Change of Heart - 這三首歌我都從youtube找出來了聽了。好聽好聽!
真謝謝你的介紹。

readandeat said...

寫了,哈哈,我發覺我的留言有時比我的網誌寫得更好。

readandeat said...

當年葉蒨文初出道時曾唱過改編Change of Heart的"地獄天堂",當年很hit。

readandeat said...

應版主要求,將我剛寫了關於Cyndi Lauper的文貼在這兒。

*****

有網友提起Cyndi Lauper,時近萬聖節,我忽然想起這位天后。

當年她的形象前衛,穿人所不敢穿;頭髮一半剷青,還留了字,頭髮五顏六色,鬼五馬六,當年真的嚇壞觀眾。報紙和娛樂雜誌也愛拿她的髮型大造文章。

她最討厭人家問她年齡。人家一問,她會不客氣地回敬:「你當我是什麼,汽車?」

她歌唱得很好,音域廣闊,是罕見的唱歌奇才。

我喜歡她的歌和她的歌聲,喜歡她的前衛但不淫蕩。

她形象反叛,完全是令家長和老師頭痛的壞女孩。Cyndi高中未畢業就離開了學校,後來拿了所謂等同高中文憑的證書(這種證書通常是不能在正式學校拿高中文憑的學生拿的)。她以前讀的高中,現在仍在。這學校看來以Cyndi為榮,向新生介紹時,仍不忘提到她是校友。

我當年扮過她上台唱了幾句Girl just wanna have fun,戴著螢光綠假髮,奇裝異服,嚇到老師半死。

李安說:每個人心中都有一座斷背山;其實,每個(正經)女孩心中都有一個Cyndi Lauper。

Leona said...

讀與吃:
謝謝!
你說你的留言寫得比網誌好,我不同意──兩者同樣地好。
多得你的推介,我這幾天都用youtube在聽cyndi lauper的歌,越聽越喜歡。

可以思想開放,行動保守嗎? 尋開心,也不必然是錯罷?

Leona said...

Da:
如今女權高漲,男女幾乎平等。
可是,在「尋開心」方面,社會似乎仍然期望女生稍為矜持一些。
因此,對女生來說,思想可以開放,行為最好稍為保守一些,好使有轉圜餘地。

同樣的行徑,男人是風流(好像還有幾分肯定似的),女人就成了放蕩。

DA,到了你的網誌一趟。你還在唸書嗎?
看來你很有性格啊。

VC said...

Da, & Leona, 聽過"將自己的快樂建築在別人錯苦上"嗎?

試想像, 有人Dinner time約妳到妳喜歡的餐廳, 但吃完appetizer便叫妳走先..

被 尋開心,也不必然是錯罷?

(just替單身情場低手男子說句公道話)

leona said...

VC:
儍啦,己所不欲,勿施於人
我們當然知道風度為何物
何況這世上有互聯網,誰使出不堪手段出來尋開心,必被公諸於世
不值得冒險
:)

VC said...

十分同意 己所不欲,勿施於人

all about me said...

oh! 我都係亦舒迷, 她的書陪著我成長, 我覺得每看完一本, 人會再成熟d. nice to meet you!

leona said...

all about me:
幸會幸會!
你剛看完沈旭暉的《耶魯的酒月童話》嗎?
他送了我一本,還未來及看呢。
