RAINDROPS KEEP FALLIN' ON MY HEAD


現実逃避。
イギリスに修学旅行に行ったとき、何の授業でだか、彼の地の先生からこの歌を習いました。





ジョン・レノンのCDを1枚だけ持って行っており、
(イギリスだからジョン・レノン持ってったのだろうか?なんでだ?)
ホストファミリーとお別れし、バスに乗り込み、涙を堪え、流れ去る景色を見ながら
聞いた曲が「Jealous Guy」だったもんで、
Jealous Guy と Raindrops~は、イギリスを思い出します。

ちなみに「Starting Over」は、その後立ち寄ったフランスを思い起こさせます。

で、ここのところマニックスに心奪われていたら、「Help」でRaindropsをカバーしていたのを思い出した次第で。
一昨日、弟(1人)を総動員して、やっとこすっとこCD探し出しました。

このCD、発売当時、緊急発売だったか何かで、
誰が何を歌うかとか決まってなかったようで、ブートか?って寂しいジャケットです。
9曲目ってCharlatans??とか思って検索したら、まだサイトが残ってた。
あっぱれ。

RAINDROPS KEEP FALLIN' ON MY HEAD
     MSP cover ver. ('Help' 'LIPSTICK TRACES')

Raindrops keep falling on my head
Just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothing seems to fit
Oh raindrops keep falling on my head
Keep a-falling

Cos I just done me some talking to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleeping on the job
Oh raindrops keep falling on my head
Keep a-falling

But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness comes up to greet me,
to greet, greet, greet, greet me

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red
Crying's not for me
Cos I ain't gonna stop the rain by complaining

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red
Crying's not for me
Cos I ain't gonna stop the rain by complaining

Because I'm free, nothing's bothering me
Because I'm free, and nothing's bothering me..

(Original.....written by Burt Bacharach)
