有人認識『UB40』 這個團體嗎?

不確定他們是不是團體

也或許是一個人歌手

會認識他們是因為UB40 - Red Red Wine這首歌曲

曲風不算快也不算慢

總之讓人聽了滿舒服的

回到正題

    UB40 是一個團體,偏向雷鬼樂風,1978年在英國伯明罕成立

    UB40 是Unemployment Benefits, Form 40 的縮寫,原意是申請失業給付的表格,在柴契爾夫人執政年代,是失業人口的暱稱

    主要成員如下

    James (Jimmy) Brown (drums) 鼓手

    Ali Campbell (guitar, lead vocals) 吉他手,主唱

    Robin Campbell (lead guitar, vocals) 主奏吉他,和聲

    Earl Falconer (bass guitar, vocals) 貝斯手,和聲

    Norman Lamont Hassan (percussion) 敲擊樂器

    Brian Travers (saxophone) 薩克斯風

    Mickey Virtue (keyboards) 鍵盤手

    Astro (Terence Wilson) (toasting vocals, percussion, trumpet) 敲擊樂器,小喇叭

    他們的歌曲常會反映種族及失業問題

    比較知名的單曲有

    Red Red Wine(原唱Neil Diamond)

    I've got you babe(與Pretender 女主唱 Chrissie Hynde合唱)

    The Way You Do the Things You Do(翻唱temptations 名曲)

    (I Can't Help) Falling In Love With You(翻唱貓王名曲,電影銀色獵物主題曲,是他們在美國Billboard 成績最好的單曲,七週NO.1)
