Toujours beaucoup

いつまでもたくさん

怪僧ラスプーチン

浮遊しているような深夜の長距離高速走行で、ラジオから飛んできた懐かしい曲。

本格的に音楽に目覚めたのは高校の頃だけど、小中学生の頃に聞いた70年代の曲の方が体の奥深くにリズムが刻み込まれている。

当時はさっぱりだったのだけど、今聞いてみると歌詞もぶっ飛んでいる。

 

youtu.be

 

ラーラーラスプーチン

ロシア女王の恋人

王室は彼のワインに毒を持った

ラーラーラスプーチン

ロシアの最高のラブマシーン

彼はワインを飲みほして言った

最高だ

 

漂泊と郷愁を感じるロシア民謡の匂いを漂わせている、抑圧と欲望が渦を巻く70年代のディスコミュージック。メンバーのロシアンダンスは、ほとばしる情熱の南米スタイル。

歌詞は実在した、ロシア中の女性を虜にしたラスプーチンの物語。

 

ロシアの深い森の奥に、ラスプーチンの失われた王国が残されていそうなロマンがある。

Rasputin
There lived a certain man in Russia long ago
He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow
Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear
He could preach the bible like a preacher
Full of ecstasy and fire
But he also was the kind of teacher
Women would desire
Ra ra Rasputin
Lover of the Russian queen
There was a cat that really was gone
Ra ra Rasputin
Russia's greatest love machine
It was a shame how he carried on
He ruled the Russian land and never mind the czar
But the cassock he danced really wunderbar
In all affairs of state he was the man to please
But he was real great when he had a girl to squeeze
For the queen he was no wheeler dealer
Though she'd heard the things he'd done
She believed he was a holy healer
Who would heal her son
Ra ra Rasputin
Lover of the Russian queen
There was a cat that really was gone
Ra ra Rasputin
Russia's greatest love machine
It was a shame how he carried on
But when his drinking and lusting and his hunger
For power became known to more and more people
The demands to do something about this outrageous
Man became louder and louder
This man's just got to go, declared his enemies
But the ladies begged, don't you try to do it, please
No doubt this Rasputin had lots of hidden charms
Though he was a brute they just fell into his arms
Then one night some men of higher standing
Set a trap, they're not to blame
Come to visit us they kept demanding
And he really came
Ra ra Rasputin
Lover of the Russian queen
They put some poison into his wine
Ra ra Rasputin
Russia's greatest love machine
He drank it all and said, I feel fine
Ra ra Rasputin
Lover of the Russian queen
They didn't quit, they wanted his head
Ra ra Rasputin
Russia's greatest love machine
And so they shot him 'til he was dead
Oh, those Russians
