Spice Girls, "My Strongest Suit"

수록앨범 : Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida (1999)

 

이번 달에 엘튼 존과 팀 라이스의 뮤지컬 아이다가 한국 캐스팅으로 오픈된다.
오리지널 캐스트 앨범까지 사서 듣고 있는데 98년에 나왔던 프로젝트 앨범(이 앨범을 뭐라고 부르면 좋을까나 -.-)과 비교해서 듣고 있다.
역시 제일 대중적인 노래는 이 곡인데 국내 방송에서도 배경음악으로 가끔 흘러나오는 곡.
그저 신난다. ㅎㅎㅎ 정말 싱글 컷 했으면 히트했을텐데.

My Strongest Suit
 
Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Tim Rice


Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere

Now I believe in looking
Like my time on earth is cooking
Whether polka dotted, striped or even checked
With someone glamour guaranteeing
Every fibre of my being
Is displayed to quite remarkable effect
From your cradle via trousseau
To your death bad you're on view, so
Never compromise, accept no substitute
I would rather wear a barrel
Than conservative apparel
Because dress has always been my strongest suit

Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere

Staying in or hitting townwards
From the top and working downwards
I ensure that every stitch is stitched in time
Whether wig or hat or turban
Whether clad boudoir or urban
Not to strut your stuff outrageously's a crime
And the few who are invited
To my wardrobe are delighted
As they wander through my things to find en route
That in negligee or formal
I am anything but normal
Because dress has always been my strongest suit

Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere
Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere

Now you don't need a recital
Of the reasons why it's vital
That tonight my trappings will not be subdued
That from coronet to sandal
No one else is worth a candle
That I couldn't make more impact in the nude
So bring me all my finest
Most audacious, my divine-ist
Most revealing, most expensive and to boot
Most arresting, most heart-stopping
Most free-flowing, most eye-popping
Because dress has always been my strongest suit

Overwear, underwear, anytime, anywhere
(Repeat until fade)
