Eleanor Rigby (1966) – The Beatles

All the lonely people,
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people,
Where do they all belong?

Eleanor Rigby (1966) – The Beatles

歌曲Eleanor Rigby,由英國著名樂隊The Beatles在1966年唱出。歌曲長達2分08秒,屬於巴洛克流行Baroque Pop及藝術搖滾Art Rock,填詞作曲由Lennon–McCartney組合,即John Lennon 及 Paul McCartney聯手打造。歌曲被收錄於專輯《Revolver》,風格多變,主要由Rock and Roll及流行樂Pop的風格轉移到實驗風格。製作人George Martin 安排了弦樂八重奏,當中樂器包括四部小提琴(Violin)、中提琴(Viola)及小提琴(Cello)各兩部。該歌曲打破了流行音樂的常規,旋律及歌詞都與平時的流行音樂與別不同。

Ah, look at all the lonely people!
Ah, look at all the lonely people!

大眾媒體指該歌曲當作例子來解釋為何The Beatles有代表性。該作品當中充滿著令人反思問題,歌曲中主要關於被人們忽視的Lonely People及老人問題。另外,歌曲被喻為是對寂寞人的悲歌。

Paul McCartney 表示在嘗試一些新旋律的實驗,而得出了該歌曲。坐在鋼琴旁就想到了新歌曲的靈曲,The Beatles創作很多時候都是即興。而本來歌曲的主人翁並不是Eleanor Rigby,而是Miss Daisy Hawkins同樣是虛構人物。歌曲名稱的靈感主要是當時女星Eleanor Bron及當地布里斯托 (Bristol)的一間店舖RIgby,而這一間店舖是由於當時McCartney看到伴侶,Jane Asher,出演的作品取景地方,令他留意到其中一間店舖。最後,把兩個字Eleanor及Rigby拼在一起,聽起來更自然,成為了歌曲的名稱。

值得一提的趣聞是在現實世界中真有其人, Eleanor Rigby,活生生的女性,在1895出生在利物浦(Liverpool)。Paul McCartney認為這個巧合是他潛意識的產物,想不到這個「虛構人物」居然會是個活生生的人。更想不到的是狂熱粉絲會為此事而追查這個女性,到這位女性的墓地「參拜」及以高價拍賣該女性的出生及死亡文件。

後來更有景點與該歌曲有關,景點 Statue of EleanorRigby,位於利物浦(Liverpool),Stanley Street。

歌詞方面

填詞作曲由Lennon–McCartney組合,即John Lennon 及 Paul McCartney聯手打造

Ah, look at all the lonely people!
Ah, look at all the lonely people!

Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been,
Lives in a dream.
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door,
Who is it for?

All the lonely people,
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people,
Where do they all belong?

Father McKenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear,
No one comes near.
Look at him working, darning his socks in the night when there’s nobody there,
What does he care?

All the lonely people,
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people,
Where do they all belong?

Ah, look at all the lonely people!
Ah, look at all the lonely people!

Eleanor Rigby, died in the church and was buried along with her name,
Nobody came.
Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave,
No one was saved.

All the lonely people,
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people,
Where do they all belong?
