Suite: Judy Blue Eyes (1969) – Crosby, Stills, Nash

Tearing yourself away from me now you are free
And I am crying
This does not mean I don’t love you I do that’s forever
Yes and for always
I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
You make it hard

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes (1969) – Crosby, Stills, Nash

歌曲Suite: Judy Blue Eyes由美國組合Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN)在1969年演出,單曲長達4分半鐘,民謠搖滾(Folk Rock)及軟式搖滾(Soft Rock) ,填詞作曲由組合中Stephen Stills一手包辦,而製作由(CSN)共同參與。在當時音樂製作競爭激烈的時候,該曲在流行曲排行榜獲不錯的成績。歌曲被指仿傚古典交響樂影式演出,愉悅的節奏,感覺很舒服,適合睡前「服用」。

歌名”Suite”指”Sweet”(讀音相近),”Sweet”Judy Blue Eyes,而歌名所指的是Stephen Stills的前女友—Judy Collins所創作的歌曲,至於歌詞主要圍繞著Stephen對她女友及即將分手一事。另外,Blue Eyes所指的是Judy有一雙迷人的藍眼睛。最後,該曲歌除了排行榜有不錯的成績,亦有各大媒體的口碑認可,包括滾石雜誌的500首史上最偉大歌曲之一及搖滾名人堂。

至於歌曲的特別之處在於Woodstock(胡士托)及Live Aid(1985)音樂節當任「開場白」。而Woodstock(胡士托)音樂節在1969年,有超過40萬觀眾入場,宣揚和平訊息等,可喻為歷史上盛大音樂節之一及改變日後音樂發展的關鍵時刻。

就CSN組合作補充,三位成員各來自不同的組合或樂隊,背景相當「架勢」,當中David Crosby曾是美國樂隊The Byrds的成員,而Stephen Stills曾是美國組合Buffalo Springfield的成員,最後Graham Nash曾是英國樂隊The Hollies成員,可說是來自「五湖四海」,實力相當雄厚。

歌詞方面

填詞作曲由組合中的Stephen Stills一手包辦

It’s getting to the point where I’m no fun anymore
I am sorry
Sometimes it hurts so badly I must cry out loud
I am lonely
I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
You make it hard
Remember what we’ve said and done and felt about each other
Oh, babe have mercy
Don’t let the past remind us of what we are not now
I am not dreaming
I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
You make it hard

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Tearing yourself away from me now you are free
And I am crying
This does not mean I don’t love you I do that’s forever
Yes and for always
I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
You make it hard
Something inside is telling me that I’ve got your secret
Are you still listening?
Fear is the lock and laughter the key to your heart
And I love you
I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
You make it hard
And you make it hard
And you make it hard
And you make it hard

Friday evening
Sunday in the afternoon
What have you got to lose?
Tuesday morning
Please be gone I’m tired of you
What have you got to lose?
Can I tell it like it is? (Help me I’m sufferin’)
Listen to me baby
It’s my heart that’s a sufferin’ it’s a dyin’ (Help me I’m dyin’)
And that’s what I have to lose (To lose)
I’ve got an answer
I’m going to fly away
What have I got to lose?
Will you come see me
Thursdays and Saturdays?
What have you got to lose?

Chestnut brown canary
Ruby throated sparrow
Sing a song, don’t be long
Thrill me to the marrow

Voices of the angels
Ring around the moonlight
Asking me said she so free
How can you catch the sparrow?

Lacy lilting lady
Losing love lamenting
Change my life, make it right
Be my lady

Que linda me la traiga Cuba
La reina de la Mar Caribe
Cielo sol no tiene sangreahi
Y que triste que no puedo vaya oh va, oh va
