I don't like Mondays

Bon Jovi & Bob Geldof - I don't like Mondays (live)

之前就很喜歡這首歌
現在開始當intern之後更是討厭星期一   =.=
本來以為這首歌只是單純在說討厭禮拜一又要上班上課
查了一下才知道,原來這首歌有背後的故事....






和Bon Jovi合唱的另一位 Bob Geldof是英國 the Boomtown Rats的主唱
其實Geldof才是原唱 ...
這首歌的故事發生在1979年的1月29日
一位16歲小女孩竟然拿槍掃射造成悲劇....

這個兇案發生在加州的San Carlos市
禮拜一  早上八點三十分
16歲的Brenda Spencer從她家的窗戶,拿著她聖誕節剛得到的禮物:一支來福槍
朝著家對面的Cleveland Elementary School校門口展開瘋狂掃射.....orz
(美國小孩的聖誕節禮物竟然是來福槍........)
當時正是學生陸續抵達學校的時間
工友和校長為了保護學生
立即被射中身亡
另外有八名學童及一名警員被射傷。
警方調來一輛垃圾車停在學校與她家中間的馬路以阻擋她的火力。
在六個多小時的僵持後,她才終於向警方投降。
當記者問她為何有此殘暴舉動?
她說 "I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day."
這就是Bob Geldof寫I Don't Like Mondays這首歌的靈感來源.....
Spencer被判25年有期徒刑,在Frontera Women's Prison服刑。
現在已經出獄...
當年還是個天真無知的少女,關出來都變成老太婆了...


I don't like the Mondays

The silicon chip inside her head gets switched to overload
and nobody's gonna go to school today
she's gonna make them stay at home
And Daddy doesn't understand it
He always said she was good as gold
And he can see no reason
Cos there are no reasons
What reasons do you need to be shown
Chorus:
Tell me why
I don't like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down

The telex machine is kept so clean and it types to a waiting world.
And Mother feels so shocked
Father's world is rocked
And their thoughts turn to
Their own little girl
Sweet 16 ain't that peachy keen
No it ain't so neat to admit defeat,
They can see no reasons
Cos there are no reasons
What reasons do you need
Repeat Chorus
All the playing's stopped in the playground now
She wants to play with her toys of death
And school's out early and soon we'll be learning
That the lesson today is how to die
And then the bullhorn crackles
And the captain tackles
With the problems and the how's and why's
And he can see no reasons
Cos there are no reasons
What reasons do you need to die
Repeat Chorus
And the silicon chip inside her head
gets switched to overload
and nobody's gonna go to school today
she's gonna make them stay at home
And Daddy doesn't understand it
He always said she was good as gold
And he can see no reason
Cos there are no reasons
What reasons do you need to be shown
Repeat Chorus




雖然明天一大早一定會很不甘願起床
不過我不會拿槍去醫院的orz
