    ただの洋楽好きのオジサン ぶろっこり が、気ままにおすすめの洋楽をお届けしている 🎶今週の洋楽🎶 。今回は、文化祭や体育祭で流れる定番の洋楽、生徒さんに大人気のアヴリル・ラヴィーン Avril Lavigne の スケーター・ボーイ Sk8er Boi と ガールフレンド Girlfriend , コンプリケイテッド Complicated をピックアップ。いままでとりあげてなくてごめんなさい。ファンのみなさん遅くなりましたー。

    闘病から復活の最新アルバム「ヘッド・アバーヴ・ウォーター」。2020ジャパン・ツアーも決定。おめでとう。

    アヴリル・ラヴィーン Avril Lavigne は、カナダ出身のロック歌手。言うまでも無いけど。

    2002年リリースのデビューアルバム『Let Go』は全世界で約2000万枚を売り上げ、アメリカでは6回プラチナディスクに選ばれた。2枚目のアルバム『Under My Skin』、3枚目の『The Best Damn Thing』は両方ともBillboard 200で1位にランク。シングルでは「Complicated」「Sk8er Boi」「I’m With You」「My Happy Ending」「Girlfriend」など11曲がトップ10入りを果たしている。現在、彼女のアルバムは全世界で4000万枚以上のセールスを達成。       Wiki アヴリル・ラヴィーン より

    彼女は、ひとつひとつの単語をしっかり、きれいに、はっきりと発音しているので、とても聞きやすいと思います。英語学習にもいいんじゃないでしょうか。

    「Sk8er Boi」は、単語自体はとても簡単なものばかりですが、アップテンポな曲なのでリスニングの練習になるかも。
    「Sk8ter」の「8」は発音が「エイト(ate)」なので「sk8er」は「skater」のことみたいです。NetスラングとかJK言葉みたいなものでしょうね。

    Sk8er Boi Avril Lavigne 2002

    He was a boy
    She was a girl
    Can I make it any more obvious?
    He was a punk
    She did ballet
    What more can I say?
    He wanted her
    She’d never tell
    Secretly she wanted him as well
    But all of her friends
    Stuck up their nose
    They had a problem with his baggy clothes
    He was a skater boy
    She said, “see you later, boy”
    He wasn’t good enough for her
    She had a pretty face
    But her head was up in space
    She needed to come back down to earth
    Five years from now
    She sits at home
    Feeding the baby, she’s all alone
    She turns on TV
    Guess who she sees
    Skater boy rockin’ up MTV
    She calls up her friends
    They already know
    And they’ve all got tickets to see his show
    She tags along
    Stands in the crowd
    Looks up at the man that she turned down
    He was a skater boy
    She said, “see you later, boy”
    He wasn’t good enough for her
    Now he’s a super star
    Slammin’ on his guitar
    Does your pretty face see what he’s worth?
    He was a skater boy
    She said, “see you later, boy”
    He wasn’t good enough for her
    Now he’s a super star
    Slammin’ on his guitar
    Does your pretty face see what he’s worth?
    Sorry, girl, but you missed out
    Well, tough, luck that boy’s mine now
    We are more than just good friends
    This is how the story ends
    Too bad that you couldn’t see
    See the man that boy could be
    There is more that meets the eye
    I see the soul that is inside
    He’s just a boy
    And I’m just a girl
    Can I make it any more obvious?
    We are in love
    Haven’t you heard
    How we rock each others world
    I’m with the skater boy
    I said, “see you later, boy”
    I’ll be back stage after the show
    I’ll be at the studio
    Singing the song we wrote
    About a girl you used to know
    I’m with the skater boy
    I said, “see you later, boy”
    I’ll be back stage after the show
    I’ll be at the studio
    Singing the song we wrote
    About a girl you used to know

    There’s no other, so when’s it gonna sink in?
    She’s so stupid
    What the hell were you thinkin’?
    In a second you’ll be wrapped around my finger
    Cause I can, ‘cause I can do it better
    There’s no other, so when’s it gonna sink in?
    She’s so stupid
    What the hell were you thinkin’?

    Avril Lavigne – Complicated (Official Music Video)

     

    Complicated Avril Lavigne 2002

    Uh-huh, life’s like this
    Uh-huh, uh-huh, that’s the way it is
    ‘Cause life’s like this
    Uh-huh, uh-huh, that’s the way it is
    Chill out, what you yelling for?
    Lay back, it’s all been done before
    And if, you could only let it be, you will see
    I like, you the way you are
    When we’re, driving in your car
    And you’re, talking to me one on one but you become
    Somebody else
    ‘Round everyone else
    You’re watching your back
    Like you can’t relax
    You’re trying to be cool
    You look like a fool to me
    Tell me
    Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
    I see the way you’re acting like you’re somebody else gets me frustrated
    Life’s like this, you
    And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
    And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
    Honesty and promise me I’m never gonna find you fake it
    No, no, no
    You come over unannounced
    Dressed up like you’re something else
    Where you are and where it’s at you see
    You’re making me
    Laugh out, when you strike your pose
    Take off all your preppy clothes
    You know, you’re not fooling anyone
    When you become
    Somebody else
    ‘Round everyone else
    You’re watching your back
    Like you can’t relax
    You’re trying to be cool
    You look like a fool to me
    Tell me
    Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
    I see the way you’re acting like you’re somebody else gets me frustrated
    Life’s like this you
    And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
    And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
    Honesty and promise me I’m never gonna find you fake it
    No, no, no
    No, no, no, no
    No, no, no, no
    No, no, no, no, no
    Chill out, what you yelling for?
    Lay back, it’s all been done before
    And if you could only let it be
    You will see
    Somebody else
    ‘Round everyone else
    You’re watching your back
    Like you can’t relax
    You’re trying to be cool
    You look like a fool to me
    Tell me
    Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
    I see the way you’re acting like you’re somebody else gets me frustrated
    Life’s like this you
    And you fall, and you crawl, and you break
    And you take, what you get, and you turn it into
    Honesty and promise me I’m never gonna find you fake it
    No, no
    Why’d you have to go and make things so complicated?
    I see the way you’re acting like you’re somebody else gets me frustrated
