It's Funny You Should Ask

-惑星Cを行く[C: cancer、癌]-

面白いね。尋ねられるなんて。


ホテルの部屋からの早朝の眺め

僕は今朝、この街に映画撮影の為に滞在中で、僕の自叙伝 "Le Freak." を読んだと言う監督/プロデューサーと会う為に早起きした。僕らは映画を作ることについて、そして僕の人生について話した。

ある個所で僕は尋ねられた。「CHICになる前に、あなたのホームムービーを撮った人がいますか?」と。僕は「数週間前、僕は偶然CHICになるバンドで演奏している僕の映像を観たところだよ。面白いね。(それを)尋ねられるなんて。」と答えた。

You will hear a Nile Rodgers song today. It will make you happy.

Today's pop music—genre-crossing, gender-bending, racially mixed, visually stylish, and dominated by dance music with global appeal—is the world that Nile Rodgers created. In the 1970s and 1980s, he wrote and produced the songs that defined that era and everything that came after: "Le Freak," "Good Times," "We Are Family," "Like a Virgin," "Modern Love," "I'm Coming Out," "The Reflex," "Rapper's Delight." Aside from his own band, Chic, he worked with everyone from Diana Ross and Madonna to David Bowie and Duran Duran (not to mention Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Prince, Rod Stewart, Robert Plant, Depeche Mode, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Grace Jones, Bryan Ferry, INXS, and the B-52's), transforming their music, selling millions of records, and redefining what a pop song could be.
