My Generation (1965) – The Who

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

My Generation (1965) – The Who

What’s your generation? 60’s is My Generation。六十年代的世代。1965年My Generation由英國樂隊The Who唱出。作曲填詞由樂隊結他手Pete Townshend包辦。My Generation意思是The Who 嘗試在社會上找一個容身之處,樂隊籍著希望可以得到他人認同。在創作歌曲當時,年輕的Pete Townshend非常迷失,而且樂隊剛起步,不知道自己要做甚麼,當時戰後嬰兒潮,年輕世代的地位很低,二戰時的前輩沒有指引年輕一代,相當迷失。

My Generation歌曲被收錄同名專輯,亦是The Who首張專輯,可喻為帶領樂隊走上成功之路的歌曲。歌曲更被滾石雜誌列入500首最偉大單曲之一,亦獲得了格林美獎名人堂及搖滾名人堂等殊榮。

順帶一提,The Who可能是世界史上最佳的表現者。當中娛樂性是因為The Who的「破壞性」極高,有強烈的叛逆心態及破壞藝術,包括在舞台上破壞結他及爵士鼓(詳細見以上影片)。究竟The Who每次演出要花費多少在樂器?

歌詞方面

填詞作曲:Pete Townshend

People try to put us d-down (talkin’ "bout my generation)
Just because we get around (talkin’ "bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (talkin’ "bout my generation)
I hope I die before I get old (talkin’ "bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don’t you all f-fade away (talkin’ "bout my generation)
Don’t try to dig what we all s-s-s-say (talkin’ "bout my generation)
I’m not trying to "cause a big s-s-sensation (talkin’ "bout my generation)
I’m just talkin’ "bout my g-g-g-generation (talkin’ "bout my generation)

My generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don’t you all f-fade away (talkin’ "bout my generation)
And don’t try to d-dig what we all s-s-say (talkin’ "bout my generation)

趣事

The Who 玩出禍

The Who電視台大爆炸事件,當時正在表演的歌曲為My Generation。完結時,玩出禍,有指Pete Townshend扔掉他的結他,並把結他摔向擴音器,令擴音器過熱而發生爆炸。另外,據說Pete Townshend因此事失去部分聽力。
