喬治大叔又被八卦媒體抓包,置家裡正牌男友Kenny Goss不顧,在倫敦的某個公園和陌生男人打野炮。雖然現在同志身份對他而言,是「An Easier Affair」,不過他可能也忘了自己是個名人,很多事是無法做也做不得。

這首單曲是喬治麥可George Michael在6月中發行的單曲,我最近才拿到手,單曲只收錄兩首歌,一首是標題的這首『An Easier Affair』,另一首是『Brother Can You Spare A Dime』;前者就是喬治大叔會唱的浩室曲風,從「outsides」或「freeeek」一貫延續下來,我覺得這首歌應該跟他2005年推出自傳性紀錄片【George Michael:A Different Story】有關,在公開出櫃並『計劃』與男友舉行婚禮後,現在的他越來越適應自己的同志身份,公開性向做回自己,變成「An Easier Affair」,不過聽完也只覺得普普。

另一首『Brother Can You Spare A Dime』算是無魚蝦也好的收錄,喬治麥可的單曲常幹這種什麼都沒有的蠢事。這首平克勞斯貝Bing Crosby的舊曲,在【給下一個太平盛世的溫柔SONGS FROM the LAST CENTURY】就很好聽,這個版本是收他和帕華洛帝在義大利摩德那的演唱會live錄音,沒有特別突出。

現在正在準備進行自己二十五週年巡迴個唱的喬治麥可,今年沒有推出新專輯的打算,所以這張『An Easier Affair』單曲,可能是唯一一張錄音室作品,寥備一格,聽聽就好!!

歌詞--

Here comes one for the ladies
For the ones who love me
To think I thought I could be some kind of family man
I told myself I was straight
But I shouldn’t have worried
‘Cos my Maker had a better plan for me
And I’m dancing with the freaks now
I'm havin’, I’m havin’ so much fun
What you sow is what you reap now
I’ll do my dance with everyone
I’ve been getting too much Sun
(Yes I’m dancin’ with the freaks now)
We’re havin’, we’re havin’ too much fun for them
Look who’s talking Guilty feet now…

Well let me tell you people
It’s an easier affair
Not living my life with other people on my mind
No, got nothing to hide from anyone
Yes, I’m walking on new air
Just living my life
Better believe I'm gonna get what’s mine
See I don’t have the time
For the haters

And all the time that I wasted
How careless of me
Too young and stupid to see
I put my life in their hands
(Gonna look for Cupid, man)
Oh, and I know that they want me to hate them
There’s no hurry
I’ll just have to be the bigger man

Dancin’ with the freaks now
I’m havin’, I’m havin’ so much fun
What you sow is what you reap now
I’ll do my dance with everyone
I’ve been getting too much Sun
If I turn the other cheek now
Would that be, would that be too much fun for them?
Look who’s talking
Guilty feet now…

Well let me tell you people
It’s an easier affair
Not livin’ my life with other people on my mind
No, got nothing to hide from anyone
‘Cos I’m walking on new air
Just living my life
Better believe I’m gonna get what’s mine
See I don’t have the time for the haters

Don’t let them tell you who you are is not enough
Don’t let them tell you that it’s wrong
Or that you won’t find love

Don’t let them use my life to put your future down
Don’t let them tell you that happiness can’t be found

For my life

Take it to the streets
There are stories you can keep
They’re just passing you by

Don’t let them tell you who you are is not enough
Don’t let them tell you that it’s wrong
Or that you won’t find love

Don’t let them use my life to put your future down
Don’t let them tell you that happiness can’t be found
