惠妮官網經典MV倒數-"Exhale (Shoop Shoop)"

惠妮官網本週精典MV回顧是"Exhale (Shoop Shoop)"!



Next up on Whitney's video countdown is "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)." If any Whitney Houston video could possibly be called 'simple,' then "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)" is it, as the clip consists mostly of close-ups - albeit stunningly beautiful ones - of Whitney as she relates the song's shrewd post-breakup advice, intercut with scenes from her blockbuster 1995 film, Waiting to Exhale. Also featured on the movie's soundtrack, naturally, the song written and produced by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds became only the 3rd single in U.S. history to enter the Billboard Hot 100 Chart at #1, spent 20 weeks in the Top 40, was duly certified platinum, and later won the Grammy Award for 'Best R&B Song.'

Whitney Houston - Exhale (Shoop Shoop)



Lyrics:

Everyone falls in love sometime
Sometimes it's wrong
And sometimes it's right
For every win
Someone must fail
But there comes a point when
When we exhale (yeah, yeah, say)

Chorus:

Shoop, Shoop, Shoop
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop (yeah)
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop

(All you got to say is shoo be doop)

Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop (Shoo be doop)
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop
Shoo Be Doop Shoop Shoop
Shoo Be Doo

Sometimes you'll laugh
Sometimes you'll cry
Life never tells us
The when's or why's
When you've got friends to wish you well
You'll find a point when
You will exhale (yeah, yeah, say)

Chorus

Hearts are often broken
When there are words unspoken
In your soul there's
Answers to your prayers
If you're searching for
A place you know
A familiar face
Somewhere to go
You should look inside yourself
You're halfway there

Sometimes you'll laugh
Sometimes you'll cry
Life never tells us
The when's or why's
When you've got friends to wish you well
You'll find a point when
You will exhale (yeah, yeah, say)

Chorus


Exhale (Shoop Shoop)這首單曲,收錄在惠妮的第二張電影原聲帶中,也是惠妮的第二部電影作品Waiting To Exhale(1995)的電影主題曲,此單曲也為惠妮再次拿下單曲榜冠軍寶座。

Waiting To Exhale(1995)的導演是Forest Whitaker,Forest Whitaker編、導、演的功力皆受好評,在2007年(第79屆奧斯卡)Forest Whitaker以飾演『烏干達人魔』The Last King of Scotland(2006)奪得最佳男演員獎座。

Exhale (Shoop Shoop)的音樂錄影帶,當初也是由Forest Whitaker拍攝。

Waiting To Exhale(1995)當年在全美賣出6千多萬美金的票房,以一部清一色主要演員都是非裔美國人的作品而言,實屬難得。尤其是電影的主題又是繞著女性之間的友誼打轉,若非是惠妮粉絲,應該男性觀眾都會對這類型電影敬而遠之吧!

Waiting To Exhale OST(1995),電影原聲帶的陣容,也是大碗的嚇人!
整張專輯是由Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds主導,"娃娃臉"先生堪稱R&B界的芭樂情歌寫手之一。與他合作過的大牌歌手一字排開的話,老中青3代都各有代表,若以當紅歌手跟過氣歌手來區分的話,目前他所合作過的藝人,應該大部份會被歸類到過氣藝人專區,這當中還不包括那些想出專輯,但卻沒唱片公司要的歌手咧!

這張原聲帶,Davin我超推薦的!目前在市面上應該還買的到才對,還沒擁有的,趕快去買喔!

加值推薦收錄於Waiting To Exhale OST(1995)的另外2首單曲:

下面2段高畫質版本影音,是我剛剛上傳到我現在的YouTube帳號,請大家享用喔!
