Rasputin 與他的青春痘

by 張家振 on Jun 30, 2008 , 10 comments

會提到 Rasputin 這個人名,其實是因為最近瘋狂愛上 70's 的Boney M.這個奇妙的四人團體。其中我所喜歡的Daddy CoolSunny都是經典名曲,喜歡 Disco 的周星馳也在其新作長江7號中用了 Sunny 這首愉悅的歌曲來當作主題曲。

但是就在我收藏了 Gold - 20 Super Hits 這張金曲選輯後,發現了一首令我聽了馬上屁滾尿流的經典…Rasputin

YouTube 上經典的 Rasputin MV

在 1978 年,也就是 Boney M. 大紅大紫的 70's 末期與 80's 初期,這首歌曲第一次收錄在他們第三張專輯Nightflight to Venus中。這首由當時知名的德當時知名的德裔音樂製作人 Frank Farian 所重裝的 Rasputin 其實是在描述在 1910 年代俄羅斯的一位神秘主義者:Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin ( Григо́рий Ефи́мович Распу́тин ) 荒淫的歡樂人生。這首歌曲整個曲風就是採樣俄羅斯音樂的旋律,而也很諷刺的把這個神秘主義的俄羅斯代言人唱的像是一場人生宴會;整首歌的歌詞其實蠻長的, 大致上的歌詞像是在讚嘆但又像是在諷刺......

There lived a certain man in russia long ago
He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow
Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
But to moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear
He could preach the Bible like a preacher
Full of Ecstacy and fire
But he also was the kind of teacher women would desire

Ra ra Rasputin Lover of the russian queen
There was a cat that really was gone
Ra ra Rasputin Russias greatest love machine
It was a shame how he carried on

He ruled the russian land and never mind the czar
But the kasachok he danced really wunderbar
In all affairs of state he was the man to please
But he was real great when he had a girl to squeeze
For the queen he was no wheeler dealer
Though shed heard the things hed done
She believed he was a holy healer
Who would heal her son

Ra ra Rasputin Lover of the russian queen
There was a cat that really was gone
Ra ra Rasputin Russias greatest love machine
It was a shame how he carried on

Spoken:
But when his drinking and lusting and his hunger for Power
Became known to more and more people,
The demands to do something about this outrageous man became louder and louder.

This mans just got to go! declared his enemies
But the ladies begged dont you try to do it, please
No doubt this Rasputin had lots of hidden charms
Though he was a brute they just fell into his arms
Then one night some men of higher standing
Set a trap, theyre not to blame
Come to visit us they kept demanding
And he really came

Ra ra Rasputin Lover of the russian queen
They put some poison into his wine
Ra ra Rasputin Russias greatest love machine
He drank it all and he said I feel fine

Ra ra Rasputin Lover of the russian queen
They didnt quit, they wanted his head
Ra ra Rasputin Russias greatest love machine
And so they shot him till he was dead

Spoken:
oh, those russians...

仔細咀嚼這串歌詞,其實是如詩般的 Rasputin 簡史,對 Rasputin 有興趣的人可以在維基百科上是可以找到中文資料;配上如此歡愉的音樂氣氛與歌末的一句:oh, those russians... 實在是諷刺到了極點!但是其 MV 又是如此趣味十足,在 YouTube 上 可以找到這首歌許多版本的 MV,其中Finnish Version 芬蘭語版的發音更是妙,且可以看到唯一男性團員 Bobby Farrell 的 Rasputin 造型 (一把大鬍子)。

ps.感覺叫做 Farrell 的都很愛演......but I like it!

每部 MV 都 High 翻天的 Boddy Farrell. (圖檔來自維基百科)

而在那個 Dsico 熱情的美好年代,Boney M. 的歌曲也成為翻唱的紅牌;如 1980 年,香港演員徐小明就曾經翻唱這首Rasputin ,並將這首歌填上了不比原作遜色且一樣黑色的中文歌詞成為了青春痘

YouTube 上的 青春痘歌曲

我人生得高 個樣令你羨慕 仲電鬈毛 鬼咁自豪
都係我媽媽好 生個仔有兩度 就算走出街 亦要威足兩鋪路
人話我聰明 非並一味靠嘈 實在我叻到係冇譜
人話我風流 並非mok嘴亞茂 實在我fit到漏油
死啦d青春豆 死啦d青春豆 我認真認真無佢收
死啦d青春豆 死啦d青春豆 粒粒都鬼死鬼死咁醜
都係我唔鬼好 食野都無量度 又食煎堆 兼夾炸生蠔
之後我皮膚粗 每朝都有野做 哎呀 係咁擠 再將藥膏塗
人話我醜 激都激到肺勞 今番真正係老土
其實我個樣生得標青Beautiful 係幾有前途


雖然不如原作擁有精彩的故事,但是這首青春痘卻在 20 幾年後的今天在鄭中基所主演的至尊無賴這部電影再次翻紅,並且與六師弟林子聰合拍了一部惡搞的 sample MV。另外 Daddy Cool 也在前幾年被杜德偉翻唱為脫掉

我想,不管是 1978 年的 Boney M. 亦或是 1910 年代的 Rasputin 本人,也許永遠料想不到在跨過一整個世紀,還會長出青春痘來啊!

    知道 Boney M. 這個團也是因為長江七號裡面的主題曲 Sunny,很熟悉的感覺,卻又不知道是誰唱的,上 YouTube 看到影片一整個爆笑!實在有夠酷。
