小简介 喜爱过80欧洲舞曲的老西洋歌迷对于F.R.David，一定不陌生。 法国音乐奇才F.R.David，1947年出生在法属突尼斯，是70年代末80年代初期最耀眼的欧洲电子音乐创作人兼歌手。他的很多作品都是以单字做为歌名，诸如Girl、Words、Music、Stay等等。都是80年代最脍炙人口，耳熟能详的流行乐名曲。 他的这首不朽佳作——“Words”（千言万语） 1982征服了欧洲、日本等10几个国家的排行冠军电子舞曲，1983年更是荣登英国金榜冠军，全球销售量突破800万张。20年后的2004年又再度成为偶像剧《流星花园》的主题曲 ，再次风靡全球。 F.R.David的嗓音舒缓轻柔，略带忧伤，充满了法国浓郁的浪漫气息。从第一次听到这首“Words”，就深深的喜欢上了他的作品，如今许多年过去了，现在重听，依然是回味无穷。 Paris-based singer/composer F.R. David (born Elli Robert Fitoussi on January 1, 1947 in Menzel Bourguiba, Tunisia) is often regarded as a one-hit wonder since he failed to repeat the success of his 1982 monster hit "Words" that topped the charts in a dozen European countries and even peaked at number two in Great Britain. He began his career in the early '70s as a guitarist for Vangelis and later, he was the lead vocalist in the French rock band Les Variations. After the dissolution of the band, he spent five years in the United States working as a studio musician for the Doobie Brothers, the O'Jays and Toto, among others. There he also recorded the album King of Hearts (as Robert Fitoussi.) Upon his return to Europe, F.R. David became an influential figure in Eurobeat, a style in dance music that dominated the continent in the 1980s. German producer/songwriter Dieter Bohlen (of Modern Talking fame) often cited F.R. David's hit "Pick Up the Phone" as a source of inspiration. In 1986 F.R. David recorded the album Sahara Night on CBS, characterized by a mixture of different music styles, followed by Reflections in 1987. The 1994 release I'll Try to Love Again marked the songwriter's return to his rock roots. After that, F.R. David's work included the album I'm Not In Love, produced at New York-based Hit Factory in 1997, classical music recordings with the London Symphony Orchestra, and a collection of his greatest hits.
