禁歌 MAMBO ITALIANO 义燒包



Mambo Italiano

Bob Merrill 於1954 年把一首意大利傳統民歌改編及發表, (作曲作詞人已不可考)
給多位當時的紅歌星收錄成唱片, 包Rosemary Clooney ( 1954) , Dean Martin(1955)Bette Midler1960 電影ItStarted in Naples (香城春戀) 中 Sophia Lore蘇菲亞羅蘭 用Mambo Italiano 跳了一埸舞。


本來一首熱情輕鬆的歌曲, 只會把歡樂帶給大眾, 但因當年美國還是非常保守, 一些上流社會人士, 認為曲詞中包含了幾句非正統的英文,是"低級趣味或不莊重", 向電台施壓,於是此曲1954年被部份電台禁播了一段時期。

The ABC network bans the Rosemary Clooney hit "Mambo Italiano," saying it did not meet the network's "standards for good taste."
