提到Huey Lewis And The News就立刻會想到經典電影《Back To The Future》(回到未來)主題曲「The Power Of Love」,但今天的主題不是它,而是樂團另一首經典歌曲「The Heart Of Rock & Roll」,歌詞涵蓋了美國十四座城市,而曲風就如樂團一貫的輕鬆又灑脫,讓人不自覺地想跟著搖擺。

來自洛杉磯的電影製作人Michael Feld決定跟著「The Heart Of Rock & Roll」走遍所有歌詞上所提到的城市,製作成一部音樂影片,向最愛的Huey Lewis And The News致敬。

「The Heart Of Rock & Roll」的距離有多長呢?

答案是:10,484 英里/11班飛機636英里/4班列車962英里/5台汽車

Michael Feld非常喜歡Huey Lewis And The News,有天在外面唱歌的時候(當然是唱Huey的歌),突然覺得如果可以跑遍歌曲上的城市就太棒了!他想知道為什麼是這些城市?跟Huey有什麼連結?在那裏找到Rock & Roll的魔力?

於是,他展開這場搖滾旅程,不僅是為了向樂團致意,並要證明Rock & Roll的心臟仍然在火熱的跳動。

完成他的旅程之後,他說:「這部影片是為了讚揚Huey Lewis And The News,這場冒險旅程的精神、那些美好的城市、居民都是這首歌帶給我的。」畢竟他們曾說:“the heart of rock and roll is still beating”我用我的雙眼親自見證了這件事,我相信他們。再來,就奉上這有趣的影片:

◎The Heart Of Rock & Roll歌詞◎

 New york, new york, is everything they say

And no place that i’d rather be

Where else can you do a half a million things

All at a quarter to three

When they palt their music, ooh that modern music

They like it with a lot of style

But t’s still that same old back beat rhythm

That really drives ’em wild

 

They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating

And from what i’ve seen i believe ’em

Now the old boy may be barely breathing

But the heart of rock and roll is still beating

 

La, hollywood, and the sunset strip

Is something everyone should see

Neon lights and the pretty pretty girls

All dressed so scantily

When they play their music

That hard rock music

They like it with a lot of flash

But it’s still that same old back beat rhythm

That really kicks ’em in the

 

They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating

And from what i’ve seen i believe ’em

Now the old boy may be barely breathing

But the heart of rock and roll is still beating

 

Dc, san antone and the liberty town, boston and baton rouge

Tulsa, austin, oklahoma city, seattle, san francisco, too

Everywhere there’s music, real live music, bands with a million styles

But it’s still that some old rock and roll music

That really drives ’em wild

 

They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating

And from what i’ve seen i believe ’em

Now the old boy may be barely breathing

But the heart of rock and roll is still beating

 

最後,怎麼能不放上一下「The Power Of Love」!
