The CASCADES-Rhythm Of the Rain 1962

The CASCADES-Rhythm Of the Rain 1962

這首中歌在1963年頭只能登上了美國流行榜第三名,
但是1999年,在二十世紀即將結束之際,
美國兩大版權代理機構之一的BMI根據業務上的數據,
統計出「二十世紀一百首最受歡迎的歌曲」,
其中名列第九的竟是「Rhythm of the Rain」。
而電台播出更超過四百萬次。
1960年美國海軍有一艘巡洋艦停在加州的聖地牙哥港,
船上有幾位喜愛音樂的大兵,
組成了一支樂隊、娛樂同袍,有時候也會到一些酒吧去客串一下。
離開海軍之後便一起闖蕩歌壇。
據說他們的名字Cascades靈感是來自北美洲一種洗潔劑牌子,是「瀑布」的意思。
而Rhythm of the rain是他們在一場暴風雨之後得到靈感譜寫而成的。
本來此隊美國樂隊是大有前途的, 但生不逢時, 因當時正是Beatles出頭之際,
他們被評為太美國化而比下去了。


Rhythm Of The Rain

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I've been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again
The only girl I care about has gone away
Looking for a brand new start
But little does she know that when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart
Rain please tell me know does that seem fair
For her to steal my heart away when she don't care
I can't love another when my heart's somewhere far away
The only girl I care about has gone away
Looking for a brand new start
But little does she know that when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart
Rain won't you tell her that I love her so
Please ask the sun to set her heart aglow
Rain in her heart and let the love we knew start to grow
Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I've been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again
Oh listen to the falling rain
