Teddy Robin (1948- )﹐中文名為泰迪羅賓﹐原名為關維鵬﹐自1964年狂人樂隊 (Beatles) 訪港後﹐ 深受其音樂感染﹐與兄弟 David (關偉) 及兩位朋友合組成 Raiders﹐其後他又與兄弟 William (關維麟)﹑加上歌手 Robin William Shum 組成 The Striplings。由於他們的衣著與髮型都非常入時﹐猶如當年的“飛仔”﹐故 Robin 就在名字前加上 Teddy﹐成為 Teddy Robin了。同期又有另一隊 Beatniks﹐包括鼓手Stanley﹑Teddy 及其兄弟 David Kwan﹐加上貝斯手 David。由於隊中有兩名 David﹐故 David Kwan 就改名為 Raymond﹐其後在參加星島日報及麗的呼聲主辦的“業餘歌唱比賽” 時﹐就把 Beatniks 改名為 The Playboys。同一屆比賽中﹐ Teddy Robin 為 The Striplings 彈結他﹐但又為The Playboys 作主唱﹐至於後者的參賽歌曲便是 Elvis 版本的 What’d I Say。稍後The Playboys也參加了 Talent Time﹐結果得到第3。

至於Teddy Robin & The Playboys﹐就由 Teddy﹑Williams﹑Raymond 加入了 Norman Cheng (鄭東漢) 及 Frederick Chan 而組成。他們更大著膽子﹐寄了 Demo Tape 給電台DJ Uncle Ray作毛遂自薦﹐對方雖沒有表示甚麼﹐但就給與機會於他的Fan Club Party 中擔任伴奏﹐不過後來 Uncle Ray 也成為了他們的經理人﹐1965年更替他們安排簽約鑽石唱片﹐成為該公司首隊全華人樂團。由於他們早期在一些派對中演奏﹐已得到一班支持者﹐故出版首張單曲 Lies / Six Days In May時已大受歡迎﹐而且他們更於麗的呼聲主持 Sound Beat節目﹐節目的主題曲 Norman’s Fancy便是由 Norman Cheng操刀作曲的。而1968年出版的單曲 Carrousel又成為“天梭牌家樂型手錶” 的主題歌﹐據說當年手錶的售價是港弊135元。後來他們又加入TVB的 Star Show與 Sam Hui & The Lotus一起主持節目。他們短短5年間﹐出版的單曲及專輯達到20多張﹐可見他們受歡迎程度。

1970年 Teddy Robin為邵氏電影“愛情的代價” 擔任男主角﹐不久又到外地流浪了幾年﹐70年代末他再次返港拍電影及灌錄粵語歌曲唱片﹐至於 Playboys的多位成員也成為唱片公司高層﹐推動香港樂壇。


Lies ﹕原為Knickerbockers樂團的歌曲 (1966/Challenge)﹐得到Billboard流行榜身20位。數年前筆者購買Linda Ronstadt的 Get Closer (1982/Asylum) CD時﹐發現Linda也有翻唱。
(Buddy Randell / Beau Charles)


Lies, Lies, you’re telling me that you’ll be true
Lies, Lies, that’s all I ever get from you
Tear, tears, I've shed a million tears for you
Tear, tears, and now you're loving someone new
Someday I'm gonna be happy
But I don't know when just now
Lies, lies, you're breaking my heart

You think that you're such a smart boy
And I'll believe what you say
Who do you think you are boy
To lead me on this way, hey

Lies, lies, I can't believe a word you say
Lies, lies, I’m gonna make you sad some day
Someday I'm gonna be lonely
And you won't find me around
Lies, lies, you're breaking my heart

Someday I'm gonna be happy
But I don't know where or when
Lies, lies, you're breaking my heart

You think that you're such a smart boy
And I'll believe what you say
Who do you think you are boy
To lead me on this way
Hey Hey Hey

Lies, lies, I can't believe a word you say
Lies, lies, are gonna make you sad some day

Someday you’re gonna be lonely
But you won't find me around
Lies, lies, you're breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart

I Can't Grow Peachers On A Cherry Tree﹕原為 Just Us的單曲 (1966/Coldpix)﹐得到 Billboard流行榜第34位。
(Levitt Estelle / Monte Camille)


Doo… Doo…
I have tried to make you love me
I've done everything your way
And I'm crying for the words you'll never say
You think love is an illusion
That must end in sad conclusion
If that's what you feel that's just how it will be
And I can't grow peaches on a cherry tree

When I see the peaches blossom
I'll regret I said goodbye
I remember cherry kisses and I'll cry
But I can't go on pretending
That our love is never ending
For you can't be loved unless you want to be
And I can't grow peaches on a cherry tree

Someday I will find a new love
But for you there can be no love
For you can't be loved unless you want to be
And I can't grow peaches on a cherry tree

Doo… Doo…
