Pinball Wizard (1969) – The Who

He’s a pinball wizard
There has got to be a twist
A pinball wizard’s
Got such a supple wrist

Pinball Wizard (1969) – The Who

歌曲 Pinball Wizard 在1969年,由英國樂隊The Who唱出。歌曲長達2分57秒,屬於Hard Rock及Power Pop類型,填詞作曲由Pete Townshend一手包辨。歌曲被樂隊收錄於專輯《Tommy》,在1969年同期推出。該歌曲在當時擠進歐美等音樂排行榜,獲得一個不錯的成績。對我來說,我十分喜歡英國樂隊The Who的作品,基本上每一首歌曲都不會令聽眾失望,這一首當然也不例外。

歌曲主要以 彈珠台(Pinball)為主題,描述彈珠台冠軍王者的角色。創作人Pete Townshend曾經表示該歌曲是他有生之年最笨拙的作品。想不到的是,該歌曲在商業有極大的迴響,相當受歡迎,更成為The Who演唱會著名表演歌曲之一,被喻為奠定The Who風格的歌曲之一。在首次公佈該歌曲(1969年頭)之後,基本上每一次的演唱會都有表演這一首歌曲。

歌詞方面

填詞作曲由樂隊的主音結他手Pete Townshend 負責

Ever since I was a young boy
I’ve played the silver ball
From Soho down to Brighton
I must have played ’em all
But I ain’t seen nothing like him
In any amusement hall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball

He stands like a statue
Becomes part of the machine
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean
He plays by intuition
The digit counters fall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball

He’s a pinball wizard
There has got to be a twist
A pinball wizard’s
Got such a supple wrist

How do you think he does it? I don’t know
What makes him so good?

Ain’t got no distractions
Can’t hear no buzzers and bells
Don’t see no lights a-flashin’
Plays by sense of smell
Always gets a replay
Never seen him fall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball

I thought I was
The Bally table king
But I just handed
My pinball crown to him

Even on my favorite table
He can beat my best
His disciples lead him in
And he just does the rest
He’s got crazy flipper fingers
Never seen him fall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball
