엘레나 마일즈 ‘블랙벨벳’

중딩이었나…고딩때였나…
배철수의 음악캠프에서 우연히 들었던 노래.
캐나다 가수로만 알고 있었고 가수 이름도 노래 제목도 모르고 있다가
몇년 후에 다시 한번 우연히 알게되어 적어두었던 가수.

그 뒤로 정말 좋아하는 노래가 됬다.
가수가 어떤 사람인지 뭐하는 사람인지는 모르겠지만
아무튼 노래가 너무 개인적으로 맘에 들었다.

나중에 찾아보니 엘비스프레슬리 추목곡 개념으로 만들었다고 한다…..

Lyrics:  

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama’s dancin’ with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin’ like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wantin’ more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Up in Memphis the music’s like a heatwave
White lightning, bound to drive you wild
Mama’s baby’s in the heart of every school girl
“Love me tender” leaves ’em cryin’ in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Every word of every song that he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon, what could
You do?

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
Black velvet if you please

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please
If you please, if you please, if you please
