Michael Jackson _Smooth Criminal  

 

文:Xavier

 

Smooth Criminal(犯罪高手)Michael Jackson在80年代末期相當具有指標性的一支單曲,這首歌從創作背景、音樂性到舞步都話題性十足,是Xavier很喜歡的一首歌,還曾被音樂雜誌評為Michael最棒的歌曲之一,華麗又動感。

 

由Michael Jackson親自編寫的Smooth Criminal最初一共有兩個版本,原本叫做Chicago 1945,後來改寫成Al Capone,最後才演變成現在的Smooth Criminal

 

Smooth Criminal描寫了一個叫Annie的女人在公寓被罪犯攻擊,最後被擊倒的情境。創作靈感來源大致有兩種說法,第一種是受黑人小女孩Annie被殺害所啟發,另一種是說法是受Het Achterhuis(安妮的日記)所影響。

屏除音樂性和創作背景不提,Smooth Criminal最大的賣點大概就是舞步的部分,因為Michael Jackson招牌的45度抗地心引力傾斜就是從這首歌開始。

 

至於抗地心引力傾斜是怎麼做到的,當初曾引起很多討論,但其實Michael Jackson只耍了一個小手段就完成這個動作,關鍵就在Michael的鞋子。

 

Michael Jackson特地在鞋底打造一個凹槽,只要跟舞台上的鉤子勾住,就能固定住雙腳,完成抗地心引力傾斜,這雙鞋子還被Michael拿來申請專利。

 

當然,即便有這雙特製的鞋子輔助,要完成45度抗地心引力傾斜仍不是一件容易的事,除了本身要有相當好的腰力外,還得反覆練習,才能達到表演時的完美狀態。Xavier甚至得說,光要想出這個Idea就已經很不容易了,Michael Jackson確實是不折不扣的表演天才。

Michael Jackson – Smooth Criminal Lyrics: 中英文歌詞對照

 

As He Came Into The Window
當他從窗戶潛入時
It Was The Sound Of A Crescendo
聲音逐漸變強
He Came Into Her Apartment
他進入她的公寓
He Left The Bloodstains On The Carpet
他留下血跡在地毯上
She Ran Underneath The Table
她躲到桌底
He Could See She Was Unable
他知道她無處可逃
So She Ran Into The Bedroom
所以她又逃進臥室
She Was Struck Down, It Was Her Doom
她卻被擊倒,這是她命中註定
