Betty Chung - I Want Action

177868283_6d35c1c7ff.jpg













筆者自小已常見鍾玲玲於電視節目中亮相﹐大概是TVB 的綜合性節目“歡樂今宵”或是“聲寶之夜”歌唱比賽擔任示範嘉賓等﹐有時也會在粵語長片時段見到她容串的粵語電影
鍾玲玲 (1949- )﹐洋名 Betty Chung﹐本名為鍾昭薇﹐生於香港。1963年參加全港業餘歌唱比賽﹐得到歐西歌曲組冠軍﹐3年後獲EMI 簽約﹐開始灌錄唱片。她灌唱的歌曲有西洋歌曲﹐也有國語時代曲﹐不過國語歌曲也多是改編自西洋歌曲。雖然她大受歡迎﹐可是這時期卻沒有首本名曲。70年代為TVB電視劇主唱主題曲“心有千千結”(1977/Crown)﹐歌曲雖是粵語﹐但卻成為其代表作﹐不過鍾玲玲始終以演唱西洋歌曲為主﹐後來香港最後一間 Cabaret式夜總會“碧麗宮”開幕﹐她便成為首位駐場歌星﹐而她也曾與 Chris Babida 鮑比達結為夫婦﹐近年鮮有其消息。70年代初期﹐其姊姊鍾曉薇便是TVB的天氣報告女郎﹐年紀稍長的朋友﹐一定有印象。

鍾玲玲的演唱風格頗為西化﹐故演繹國語歌曲也比較自然﹐但奇怪EMI的老歌合輯鮮有收錄她的歌曲。筆者擁有兩張單曲 Miss You Baby 及 I Want Action 灌錄於60年代﹐但都是後期購得。

    Dear Eddie Ho,

    這張唱片﹐我以前常見到﹐特別在旺角新興唱片﹐應是全新的﹐可是我不懂找緊機會﹐想不到後來新興倒了﹐所以就沒有了。其實我都頗喜歡她的國語歌曲﹐嗓音很獨特﹐但又不造作。

    Dear David Poon,

    我未聽過鍾露露﹐當時我只知道鍾曉薇是她姊姊而已﹐她也有灌錄唱片嗎﹖

    I don't know if she ever had her record. There was a time that she appeared on 'Enjoy Yourself Tonite' every once in a while. I remember vaguely there was a write up about the sisters in one of the TVB Weekly.

    Betty was singing for Winston in one of the commerical and the lyrics goes ... 'Winston tastes good like a cigarette should'. She looks so nice in that clip. I always think she and her sisters are very beautiful women.

    Dear David Poon,

    我也記得那雲絲頓香煙的廣告歌呢。我聽鍾玲玲的歌不算多﹐但是卻很喜歡她的歌聲。數月前﹐TVB有一個訪問﹐邀請了她作嘉賓﹐她在美國的生活頗逍遙的﹐可是樣子變了許多﹐若然在當地碰到她﹐誰也沒法想像這平凡的婦人﹐竟是當年歌壇中耀眼的明星呢。

    That's life in North America. Once you arrived you basically start from stretch again. Nobody knows you and nobody cares who you 'were'. For the past 21 years in Toronot I've came across a few HK celebraties some of them were so low profile that they weren't even wearing any make in the public. It's quite a funny feeling when you are standing next to someone you use to see on TV or movie and the person is humbly searching for a bargin in the mall right next to you.

    Dear David Poon,

    或者當他們都過厭了星光的生活後﹐都很享受平淡的生活吧。就如鍾玲玲的訪問﹐她看來活得頗開心的。主持人訪問她﹐香港懷舊風起﹐會否回來開一下演唱會﹐她想也不想就回答不會了﹐可見她對過去並沒有留戀。

    Betty Chung was quite a pretty face (with a good voice) in the early 70s
    Someone lent me one of the TVB EYT stars' movies where there's
    a scene of her singing Lulu's song Lets Pretend
    in Mandarin called 假惺惺 on TV
    So here it is to share:

    Dear webbburt777,

    謝謝你剪輯的 MV﹐我開頭還以為是電影“瘋狂電視迷”﹐後來看到畫面﹐才知道是“歡樂人生”﹐那鍾玲玲買言跟鞋的劇情﹐我還記得呢。

    I first heard Betty's song was an English song called "Happy heart" (Originally sung by Andy Williams). Betty sang this song really attracts me. I really hope someone can post this song to youtube....

    Dear Megafoxwood﹐

    若有可能的話﹐我還是較期望唱片公司能把歌曲重版﹐而不是甚麼 youtube﹐這倒像你不肯把家裡的東西拿出來麼﹐我就搶你的﹐放在網上跟人分享~

    Dear Muzikland,

    Thanks for the prompt reply, to my opinion, I think we don't have so many Betty Chung fans get together coz her style is not easy to be accepted by the majority of Hong Kong people as her songs are rarely heard from the radio. (I mean English songs) I myself have all her LP albums and I'm planning to upload them to youtube and share with all the "Comrades"
