America - A Horse With No Name 1972 (1/3)

亞美利加合唱團 America是70年代初期的一支民謠搖滾三重唱樂團,樂團的3名成員都是美國駐英空軍軍官的兒子1970年在倫敦組成。清新的木吉他伴奏、出色的和聲加上精心的製作乃是他們的最大本錢;團員在高中時代互相認識,Dan Peek、Gerry Beckley及Dewey Bunnell皆擅長自彈自唱,在七○年代初期頗受歡迎。1972年的春天他們推出了首支單曲《A Horse With No Name》,在英國排行榜上名列第三。緊接著又推出了”I Need You” ,樂隊的吉他演奏清脆悅耳,被評論界稱為”原聲版的Crosby Still Nash and Young”。 在樂隊的首張同名專輯《America》中,他們繼續保持了這種清新的風格。在英國大獲成功後,樂隊返回美國本土尋求發展。《A Horse With No Name》擠下Neil Young的 Heart of Gold,沖上了排行榜的首位。第二張專輯「Homecoming」的首攻單曲Ventura Highway,在1972年12月再度空降美國金榜,Ventura Highway是作曲者離家踏上高速公路面對未來憧憬的不安卻又興奮的刻劃。成為美國合唱團第三首前10名單曲。 Billboard TOP 40 Year Title 1972 A Horse With No Name - (#1) 1972 I Need You - (#9) 1972 Ventura Highway - (#8) 1973 Don't Cross the River - (#35) 1974 Tin Man - (#4) 1975 Daisy Jane - (#20) 1975 Lonely People - (#5) 1975 Sister Golden Hair - (#1) 1976 Today's the Day - (#23) 1982 You Can Do Magic - (#8) 1983 The Border - (#33) Lyrics : On the first part of the journey I was looking at all the life There were plants and birds and rocks and things There was sand and hills and rings The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz And the sky with no clouds The heat was hot and the ground was dry But the air was full of sound I've been through the desert on a horse with no name It felt good to be out of the rain In the desert you can remember your name 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain La, la ... After two days in the desert sun My skin began to turn red After three days in the desert fun I was looking at a river bed And the story it told of a river that flowed Made me sad to think it was dead You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name It felt good to be out of the rain In the desert you can remember your name 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain La, la ... After nine days I let the horse run free 'Cause the desert had turned to sea There were plants and birds and rocks and things there was sand and hills and rings The ocean is a desert with it's life underground And a perfect disguise above Under the cities lies a heart made of ground But the humans will give no love You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name It felt good to be out of the rain In the desert you can remember your name 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain La, la ...
