【歌單】100首2000s金曲(上)



「2000s」,指2000年到2009年這段時間,無疑是節奏藍調音樂輝煌的十年。本篇選自AllMusic文章,作者Andy Kellman憑著擔任專欄編輯的多年經驗,挑揀出100首曾打進告示牌節奏藍調與嘻哈單曲榜的歌曲,並依其口味、喜好排名。至於未上榜的冷門、遺珠,諸如Sa-Ra的〈Glorious〉及The Foreign Exchange之〈Daykeeper〉等,Andy表示可能在未來集結成篇後擇日公布。

在此特製兩份YouTube播放清單、針對較不熟悉或值得一提的作品加上註解。姑且請大家當作回顧舊時美好,若欲深究躋身Andy心目中前十強的標準及理由,詳見原文,不多作討論。

 25. Dear Jayne - "Rain" [Capitol, 2008]
Dear Jayne由和席亞拉(Ciara)、緹亞拉瑪莉(Teairra Mari)合作過的Anthony Tate召集成軍,第一主打〈Rain〉請來天王天后幕後寫手Carlos McKinney創作,被媒體視為蕾哈娜(Rihanna)〈Umbrella〉的回應曲,成功打入節奏藍調與嘻哈單曲榜百大,無奈預定於2008年3月發行的首張專輯《Voice Message》後來未有下落。
26. Amerie - "Why Don't We Fall in Love" [Columbia, 2002]

 28. Diddy - "Last Night" [Bad Boy, 2006]
 29. Tori Alamaze - "Don't Cha" [Universal, 2005]
看到歌名一定不陌生,心中不僅納悶「這不是小野貓(The Pussycat Dolls)的嗎?」希洛格林(Cee-Lo Green)譜寫、製作的〈Don't Cha〉,2004年完成時首先由環球旗下的Tori Alamaze演唱,在節奏藍調與嘻哈單曲榜拿下第53名,隨後她因不滿唱片公司待遇結束合約。最終曲子輾轉交給小野貓重錄,熱銷全球。

 31. OutKast - "Hey Ya!" [LaFace, 2003]
 32. Jagged Edge - "Walked Outta Heaven" [Columbia, 2003]

 42. Prince - "Black Sweat" [NPG, 2006]
 43. Mariah Carey - "We Belong Together" [Island, 2006]

 49. Ginuwine - "Differences" [Epic, 2001]
 50. Nate Dogg - "I Got Love" [Elektra, 2001]
與史奴比狗狗(Snoop Dogg)、華倫G(Warren G)組成團體「213」的饒舌歌手奈特狗狗,單飛後的專輯總不乏節奏藍調與靈魂樂元素,〈I Got Love〉便為良例,還受電影《玩命快遞》相中為插曲。可惜奈特2007年於自宅辭世。
