Whitesnake - 'Here I Go Again' (Look Back)

I don't know where I'm going
But I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises
In songs of yesterday

And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

Here I go again
Here I go again

Though I keep searching for an answer
I never seem to find what I'm looking for
Oh, Lord, I pray
You give me strength to carry on

'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone

But I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

Just another heart in need of rescue
Waiting on love's sweet charity
I am gonna hold on
For the rest of my days

'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

But here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go

And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
I have made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

But here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go
Here I go again



Το τραγούδι "Here I Go Again" το πρωτακούσαμε στο ομότιτλο single των Whitesnake που κυκλοφόρησε στις 15 Νοεμβρίου του 1982 (με το "Bloody Luxury" στην δεύτερη πλευρά του βινυλίου). Πέντε ημέρες αργότερα κυκλοφόρησε και ως μέρος του δίσκου "Saints & Sinners" (το πρώτο τραγούδι της δεύτερης πλευράς). Την σύνθεση και τους στίχους υπογράφουν ο David Coverdale και ο (κιθαρίστας) Bernie Marsden.

Πέντε χρόνια αργότερα επαναηχογραφήθηκε. Την νέα εκτέλεση την βρίσκουμε στον ομώνυμο (ή "1987") δίσκο των Whitesnake που κυκλοφόρησε τον Μάρτιο του 1987. Τον Ιούλιο του ίδιου έτους "βγήκε" και ως single με το "Guilty of Love" στην δεύτερη πλευρά. Επίσης υπήρξε και μία ραδιοφωνική ηχογράφηση του κομματιού (σαράντα δευτερόλεπτα μικρότερη σε διάρκεια) με διαφορετικό line-up.

Ως προς την αρχική μορφή του τραγουδιού υπήρξε μία διαφοροποίηση στους στίχους (σε μία μόνο λέξη) καθώς το "Like a hobo I was born to walk alone" αντικαταστάθηκε από το "Like a drifter I was born to walk alone". Όπως δήλωσε ο Coverdale "φοβήθηκε" μήπως το "hobo" ακουσθεί ως "homo" και γι' αυτό αντικατέστησε την λέξη με το "drifter".

Το εν λόγω μουσικό κομμάτι αποτελεί και μέρος της νέας συλλογής των Whitesnake υπό τον τίτλο "Greatest Hits 2022 - Revisited - Remixed - Remastered", της οποίας κάποιες εκδόσεις κυκλοφορούν ήδη και οι υπόλοιπες θα "βγουν" μέσα στο καλοκαίρι...

Η συλλογή των Whitesnake 'Greatest Hits 2022'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Whitesnake founder and lead singer David Coverdale had 16 tracks remixed and remastered for this collection.

He explains: “We’ve definitely expanded on the original Greatest Hits, took them all out of the sonic time capsule of the ’80s and ’90s, and brought them up to date, sound-wise … as always, we have the original albums for those who consider them holy relics.

Keyboardist Derek Sherinian, who also appeared on Whitesnake’s recent Red, White and Blues trilogy, adds Hammond organ to more than half the songs on the collection. His scorching contributions can be heard on the #1 smash “Here I Go Again,” “Fool For Your Loving,” “You’re Gonna Break My Heart Again,” and more.

New performances by former Whitesnake guitarist Adrian Vandenberg can also be heard on “The Deeper The Love” and “Judgement Day” from the 1989 album, Slip of the Tongue. Along with those new additions, Coverdale also went back to the vault to unearth vintage performances by guitarist John Sykes that didn’t appear on the original recordings, including a solo on “Slide It In” and rhythm guitar on “Give Me All Your Love.”

Whitesnake Greatest Hits focuses extensively on three blockbuster albums the band released during the 1980s: 1984’s Slide It In (2x platinum), 1987’s Whitesnake (8x platinum), and 1989’s Slip of the Tongue (platinum). But the collection goes deeper with songs like “Sweet Lady Luck,” a b-side on the 12” single for “The Deeper The Love,” and “Forevermore,” the title track from the band’s 2011 album.

Whitesnake will embark upon a farewell tour in May with special guest, Europe. The first leg of “Whitesnake: The Farewell Tour” will start on May 10 in Dublin. Coverdale said: “I pray every day we can all make this happen & once again, share unforgettable evenings together & celebrate the amazing journey we have been on for almost 50 years!!!”»
