特朗普出场的背景音乐还挺好听的,今天搜来存在这儿。


Y.M.C.A.是美国Disco乐团The Village People的代表作之一。收录在1980年发行的专辑Can´t Stop the Music当中 。但是作为单曲,Y.M.C.A.早在1969年12月31日已经发行,由Henri Belolo,Phil Hurtt,Jacques Morali 和Peter Whitehead共同创作。这首单曲在1979年The Billboard Hot 100榜单中最高排名第2。2014年《中国好声音》杨坤战队四强所表演的Young Man就是这首歌的中文版。美剧Friends第二季21集结尾时Monica在餐厅表演时放的音乐也是这首歌。

YMCA本来是指The Young Men’s Christian Association(基督教青年会)。“The Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA), founded in London in 1844 and brought to the United States in 1851, began as an effort to protect vulnerable men from the dangers of the city. By the early twentieth century, YMCAs had become popular havens for men who sought sex with other men.” (该组织1844年在伦敦成立,1851年引进至美国,原本旨在保护城市中弱势年轻男性。但是,从20世纪早期开始,YMCA变成了男同性恋者寻欢作乐的集中地。)于是这首同名歌一发行就成为了男同性恋社区的代表曲,受到男同性恋者的追捧。

2007年,The Village People乐队的主唱和成立者Victor Willis在接受采访时表示 :“the lyrics in Y.M.C.A. were not meant to be innuendo about gay cruising but about hanging out with your straight buddies.”(Y.M.C.A.的歌词不是暗指同性恋间的寻欢作乐,而是指直男之间的普通玩乐。) [6]

歌词:

Young man, theres no need to feel down.
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground.
I said, young man, cause youre in a new town
Theres no need to be unhappy.
Young man, theres a place you can go.
I said, young man, when youre short on your dough.
You can stay there, and Im sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time.
Its fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
Its fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys …
Its fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
Its fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel …
Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, what do you want to be?
I said, young man, you can make real your dreams.
But you got to know this one thing!
No man does it all by himself.
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf,
And just go there, to the Y-M-C-A.
Im sure they can help you today.
Its fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
Its fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys …
Its fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
Its fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
You can get yourself cleaned, you can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel …
Young man, I was once in your shoes.
I said, I was down and out with the blues.
I felt no man cared if I were alive.
I felt the whole world was so tight …
Thats when someone came up to me,
And said, young man, take a walk up the street.
Theres a place there called the Y-M-C-A.
They can start you back on your way.
Its fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
Its fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
They have everything for you men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys …
