Have you never been mellow?
            Olivia Newton-John


There was a time when I was in a hurry as you are
I was like you
There was a day when I just had to tell my point of view
I was like you
No I don't mean to make you frown
No I just want you to slow down

*Have you never been mellow ?
Have you never tried ?
To find a comfort from inside you
Have you never been happy just to hear your song?
Have you never let someone else be strong?

Running around as you do with your head up in the clouds
I was like you
Never had time to lay back
Kick your shoes off, close your eyes
I was like you
Now you're not hard to understand
You need someone to take your hand ( * )
你不曾放慢步調嗎?
         奧莉薇亞紐頓強


從前我和像你一樣,總是匆忙來去
我過去和你一樣
有一天,我得說出個人的看法
過去的我像你一樣
我不是故意要使你皺眉頭
我只是希望你能慢下來

你不曾放慢步調嗎?
你從來都沒試過嗎?
試著找到你內心的慰藉
聽到屬於你的歌,你不曾感到快樂嗎?
你從來都沒使某人堅強起來?

像你一樣團團轉,整個人心不在焉
我過去和你一樣
從來沒有時間能向後靠著
踢掉鞋子,閉上眼睛
過去的我像你一樣
現在的你,不難了解
你需要有人牽著你的手

 澳大利亞女歌手 Olivia Newton-John 奧莉薇亞紐頓強到美國發展初期,以鄉村歌曲路線為主,後來才逐漸往流行靠攏。

 1975 年 1 月 21 日,奧莉薇亞紐頓強發行抒情單曲" Have you never been mellow? ";不久以後,第六張個人專輯《 Have You Never Been Mellow 》隨之發行。

 這首歌在 1975 年第 8 週爬升至告示牌百大單曲榜榜首位置,成為奧莉薇亞紐頓強的第二首全美冠軍曲;在成人抒情榜也是冠軍,是她在成人抒情榜的第三首冠軍曲。主打單曲告捷,這張專輯買氣急遽上升,也爬升到告示牌專輯榜冠軍,是她的第二張全美冠軍專輯。

 " Have you never been mellow? "稍後在 1976 年為奧莉薇亞紐頓強獲得葛萊美獎最佳流行女歌手的提名。

 幾年後,外表美艷的奧莉薇亞紐頓強主演了電影《 Grease 火爆浪子 》、《 Xanadu 仙納杜的狂熱 》,不僅票房鼎盛,也嘗試了不同風格的電影插曲。後來,又推出超級暢銷曲" Physical ",引發全球一股健身操熱潮,以豔星姿態完全轉向流行歌曲,和初期的鄉村玉女形象可謂雲泥之別。
