惠妮翻唱經典『Step By Step』


咱家天后Whitney Houston的第三張電影原聲帶『The Preacher's Wife』中的單曲Step By Step,也是首翻唱曲喔!

該單曲最早面世的版本,是出自於蘇格蘭女伶Ann Lennox在1992年發行的專輯『Diva』,詞曲也都是Ann Lennox所譜寫,當年此單曲是收錄在『Diva (Japan Edition)』日本限定盤中。

Annie Lennox - Step By Step (Japan Edition)

Lyrics:
Step by step
Bit by bit
Stone by stone yeah
Brick by brick

Step by step
Day by day
Mile by mile oooh
Now don't you slip away
Don't you go too far
'Cause when I close my eyes
I know who you are.

You are the dark emotion
That makes me hold my breath
Just like the silent water
Upon the ocean's depth.

Don't you slip away
Don't you go too far
'Cause when I close my eyes
I know who you are.

It's just the fear of falling
That makes my lose my grip
It's just the fear of falling
That makes my fingers slip.

Step by step
Bit by bit
Stone by stone yeah
Brick by brick

Step by step
Day by day
Mile by mile oooh
Go your way

Baby don't give up
You've gotta hold on to what you've got
I said baby don't give up
You've gotta keep on moving, don't stop, yeah
Just like a new excursion (I know you're hurting)
Upon an open road (I know you do)
I've got the will to take me (I know you're hurting)
Just where I want to go (don't let the bad thing get to you)

C'mon baby keep moving on
C'mon baby keep on
Keep up...


此單曲的惠媽版,歌詞的部份,有小部分重新改寫!
Whitney Houston - Step By Step

Lyrics:
Well there's a bridge and there's a river that I still must cross
As I'm going on my journey
Oh, I might be lost
And there's a road I have to follow, a place I have to go
Well no-one told me just how to get there
But when I get there I'll know
Cuz I'm taking it

Chorus:
Step By Step, Bit by Bit,
Stone By Stone (Yeah), Brick by Brick (Oh, yeah)
Step By Step, Day By Day, Mile by mile

And this old road is rough and ruined
So many dangers along the way
So many burdens might fall upon me
So many troubles that I have to face

Oh, but I won't let my spirit fail me
Oh, I won't let my spirit go
Until I get to my destination
I'm gonna take it slowly cuz I'm making it mine

Chorus:
Step By Step (you know I'm taking it), bit by bit (bit by bit, come move),
stone by stone (yeah), brick by brick (brick by brick by brick by brick)
Step by step (step by step uh-huh), day by day (day by day),
Mile by mile
Go your own way.

Say it, baby, don't give up
You got to hold on to what you got,
Oh, baby, don't give up,
You got to keep on moving on don't stop (yeah yeah).
I know you're hurting, and i know you're blue,
I know you're hurting but don't let the bad things get to you.

Chorus:
I'm taking it step by step, bit by bit (bit by bit come move),
Stone by stone (stone by stone yeah), brick by brick (brick by brick by brick by brick),
Step by step (i'm gonna take it now),day by day (day by day),
Mile by mile
Go your own way!

(C'mon baby got to keep moving),
I'm taking it step by step), bit by bit,
Stone by stone (yeah, stone by stone), brick by brick
C'mon baby,
Step by step keep on moving, day by day (day by day-ee),
Mile by mile by mile by mile,go your own way,
C'mon baby got to keep moving, bit by bit (bit by bit, bit by bit)....

  2. Re.a-farn:
    其實惠媽有很多經典名曲都是翻唱的,這中間還蠻多首都是冠軍單曲喔!
    能把別人的B-Side單曲,甚至是主打歌,翻唱出更棒的成績,一直是阿惠的強項,而這也應該是很多歌手對阿惠又愛又恨的原因吧....
