You Really Got Me (1964) – The Kinks

Yeah, you really got me now
You got me so I don’t know what I’m doing’, now
Oh yeah, you really got me now
You got me so I can’t sleep at night.

You Really Got Me (1964) – The Kinks

今天會為大家介紹的歌曲是You Really Got Me,在1964年由The Kinks演唱,歌曲長達兩分鍾,屬於Garage Rock及Hard Rock。起初,表演風格較為藍調風格,主要受到著名蓋調歌手Lead Belly及Big Bill Broonzy啟發。在決定藍調與搖滾之間,最後版本卻選擇了搖滾風格,亦即是現在的單曲版本。

歌曲由The Kinks樂隊主唱兼創作人Ray Davies打理,創作過程只在幾天花費了少量的時間創作出來,剛創作出來的早期版本(Demo版本)與現在發行版有很大分別,Demo較偏向Jazz樂,發行版當然較為商業化。Ray Davies聲稱他只用了較少時間去創作歌曲,應該算是眾多歌曲最快創作完成的歌曲之一。

另外,這首歌曲的誕生是一因為高中某日的一個晚會上,他跟他樂隊演奏時,他發現一個美若天仙的女生在舞池中。可惜的是當他們演奏結束後,已經找不到那一位女生了,而且再也沒見過她在那個晚會出現了。Ray Davies補充,那位女生真的令我一見傾心”She really got me going”

在歌詞方面,Dave Davies坦承只是一首寫給小屁孩的愛情歌(a love song for street kids)至於在結他方面,該歌曲有相當大的爆炸力及力量,Dave Davies的Riff充滿著heavy metal 及punk rock的味道,特別是當中運用到的Power Chords,在結他運用有深遠的影響。Ray及Dave兩兄弟的合作,弟弟Dave改良了Ray的Demo版本,運用了自己的結他技巧,令歌曲更上一層樓。

You Really Got Me是The Kinks第三首單曲,在當時英美音樂排行榜中有一張不錯的成績單,特別是在英國地區音樂榜長居榜首。該歌曲為樂隊帶來突破性的發展,非常受歡迎,成為「英國入侵」現象的重要一員,在美國等地亦有不少的粉絲。
