CINDERELLA

I was out last night having a ball
And comin’ home, I wasn’t thinkin’ nothin’ at all
And there on the sidewalk what did I see
A little glass slipper starin’ back at me
Cinderella (Cinderella)

Well I’m not superstitious but I’m smarter than I seem
And I knew it was love, if you know what I mean
When I saw that slipper it occurred to me
The shoe fit her and she fit me
Cinderella (Cinderella)
Cinderella (Cinderella)

When I find her it will be
A fairy tale for her and me
I will never let her go
Cinderella

Now the other girls hold no fascination for me
I just think of her wherever she may be
I will search my whole life through
‘Cause no one else will ever do
Cinderella (Cinderella)
Cinderella (Cinderella)

When I find her it will be
A fairy tale for her and me
I will never let her go
She will give my heart a home
Until that day I’ll be alone
With just a slipper and a dream
Cinderella (Cinderella)
Cinderella (Cinderella)
Oo (Cinderella)
Cinderella (Cinderella)

Sung by America. Written by J. Kimball and D. Vidal, 1984

這首歌收錄在 America 合唱團 1984 年推出的 Perspective “A perspective from America” 專輯中

以前原版錄音帶(當時叫它 A 版)很少
版權觀念也很薄弱, 更不要說法律保不保護了
在唱片行一般可以買到的都是所謂 “原版 A 拷” 的 B 版錄音帶
或是把時下最流行的歌曲收在一張錄音帶中, 以各種名目推出
如 Billboard 排行, 流行廣告配樂歌曲, 余光音樂雜誌熱門排行等等

開始喜歡上西洋歌曲是國二那年暑假
還記得當時聽的就是一張廣告配樂
裡面有普騰電視的廣告配樂, 金車麥根沙士的 Days of Summer (By Topaz) 等等耳熟能詳的歌曲

在當時, 不知道這些已經被歸類到老式情歌之流
只知道打開電視, 偶爾就可以聽到幾秒鐘這樣的歌曲是很不過濾

會發現這首歌, 是來自於大一學時代買的一卷 B 版錄音帶
當時英文能力不太好, 聽力更差
但 B 版錄音帶附的歌詞實在不敢茍同
於是, 找上英聽老師, 一個很 lovely 的老外
拿著 Tape 跟本子要她幫忙聽寫
就這樣, 她把歌曲聽寫下來給我
為的是大一下學期即將開始的的那段純純又蠢蠢的愛情故事

而我回報她的, 是一隻自己親手用樹葉折的 grasshopper
可惜的是這麼多年下來,
早已經忘了 grasshopper 是怎麼折出來的
就像我已經淡忘的曾經的那一段故事
