我至愛的經典外語金曲

接網友小蓓的tag, 之前一見這個題目便想我一定想不到, 因為音樂方面最喜歡的都是電影原聲音樂, 其他的都已很少買來聽.

說到外語金曲, 中小學時常常聽, 又受父母親及姨母們影響, 當然也聽過不少. 小學時是學校合唱團成員, 偶然也會唱這些歌曲, 父親看電影時我即使不太懂也會聽聽那些主題曲. 中學校內辦的歌唱比賽, 同學們都愛找些經典金曲來參賽, 唱英文歌怎也有點味道及品味, 很少同學會揀時代曲比賽的.

以下是我第一時間想到又喜歡的外語經典金曲, 當然有一兩首要在網上找找曲名, 因為只記得曲及詞. (小蓓, 乜咁新果D都得咩??? :) 哈.)

雖然這些歌曲大都比我年長, 不過中小學時都聽不少.

最喜歡的必定是Carpenters了, "Close To You"(1973)是我的第一位:

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you. (全首歌詞)

第二首依然是Carpenters, "Rainy Days and Mondays"(1972), 兩首都是初期有K唱時(唱廳那種呢!)我常會唱的歌:

Talkin' to myself and feelin' old
Sometimes I'd like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin' around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down. (全首歌詞)

第三首是父親愛看的"The Godfather"中最經典的"Speak Softly Love"(1972), 由Andy Williams唱:

Speak softly, love and hold me warm against your heart
I feel your words, the tender trembling moments start
Were in a world, our very own
Sharing a love that only few have ever known

Wine-colored days warmed by the sun
Deep velvet nights when we are one (全首歌詞)

第四首想到的(可能有更喜歡的啊), 是這句: "Why does the sun go on shining? Why does the sea rush to shore, Don't they know it's the end of the world? Cos' you don't love me anymore..."

原來歌名是"The End of the World", 歌手是Skeeter Davis, 1964年的金曲:

Why does the sun go on shining
Why does the sea rush to shore
Don't they know it's the end of the world
'Cause you don't love me any more

Why do the birds go on singing
Why do the stars glow above
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when I lost your love

I wake up in the morning and I wonder
Why everything's the same as it was
I can't understand, no, I can't understand
How life goes on the way it does (全首歌詞)

這首不是最喜歡, 不過這刻想到它, "Tell Laura I Love Her", 歌手是Ray Peterson, 1960年的作品:

Laura and Tommy were lovers
He wanted to give her everything
Flowers, presents,
But most of all, a wedding ring

He saw a sign for a stock car race
A thousand dollar prize it read
He couldn't get Laura on the phone
So to her mother, Tommy said

Tell Laura I love her
Tell Laura I need her
Tell Laura I may be late
I've something to do, that cannot wait(全首歌詞)

要tag五人??? 唔知人地睬唔睬我喎... 即管試試... 不如揀D年紀差不多架啦 (咁就不如俾夠七個啦):

Aulina (牢騷絮語 / Sensible Whinings) - 唔知佢會響中文抑或英文blog寫呢? 佢今日病左, 俾D時間佢啦.

梁巔巔 - 大家咁大, 不過佢果D分分鐘我唔識囉!

五師兄 - 年輕爸爸實有啦

kajie - 廣告界, 容乜易就會諗到

Uncle Ray - 雖然應該大我D, 不過佢咁鍾意音樂, 一定諗到啦!

Donald - 又係同我咁大, 又鍾意睇電影, 一定有

Peaceful Valley (我個friend黎架!) (陳綺貞唔算架K!)

今晚寫!

mad dog said...

等住睇架今晚!

梁巔巔 said...

^~

梁巔巔 said...

Speak Softly Love, 今晚我嗰篇都會包括呢首.

mad dog said...

LDD: Speak Softly Love真係超正, 我中學時好鍾意, 好似F.6/F.7上music堂唱, 有埋歌詞, 好耐都唔捨得丟.

梁巔巔 said...

我當年直情錄滿成餅帶 AB side 都係呢隻歌.

Reality 都係.

小蓓 said...

原本都好鍾意Tell Laura I love her,但有個笑話。話說當年家住商務對面,商務門口經常擺放經典金句唱碟的counter,當時日日放學經過都係咁啱得咁橋唱緊"tommy and laura were lovers, he wanted to give her everything, flowers, presents, and most of all a wedding ring..." 如是者,一星期聽足至少五六七次,歌詞聽到識背,幾個月之後好憎呢首歌,出門要兜路行!!!=D

閒趣 said...

呵呵,好像candle in the wind 那樣,由英國人的至愛變成至憎。

梁巔巔 said...

小蓓, 同 "Oh! Carol" 一樣!

個旋律係有 oD唔 "襟" 聽.

閒趣, 我都唔覺得 "在風中的蠟燭" 有乜好聽.

Elton John 嘅 goodbye Yelow Brick Road, 至正!

mad dog said...

LDD: 成餅帶A/B sides同一隻歌你都真係癲癲地... "Reality"都唔錯, 中學時同個friend吵翻左, 佢好有心機畫左張野俾我, 上面打左"Reality"既歌詞, 幾鬼sweet呀! :) 你話女校係咪好易攪到人lesbian丫!

小蓓: 哈, 你個笑話真係幾搞笑! 又會咁啱日日都係果句! :)

閒趣: :)

LDD: "Candle in the Wind", 我鍾意喎! :)

PK_ said...

carpenters 好呀!有無留意小弟早排既私房製作,係佢地既 please mr postman 加入 the beatles 版本(john lennon 唱)既幾句入去?

elton john 寫d歌好靚,goodbye yellow brick road 之外,daniel, dont let sun go down on me, etc., 都好聽。。。。

梁巔巔 said...

"有無留意小弟早排既私房製作,係佢地既 please mr postman 加入 the beatles 版本(john lennon 唱)既幾句入去?"

喂, pk_兄, 整多次條 link 嚟呀!

mad dog said...

pk_: mr postman! 我都鍾意!!!! john lennon版本好似無聽過喎...

五師兄 said...

俾D時間我!

我唔同你,我寫了幾篇就要休息幾天!

五師兄 said...

by the way,「金曲」是 what definition? Beatles 算不算? U2 算不算? Queen 算了吧?

mad dog said...

五師兄: "我唔同你,我寫了幾篇就要休息幾天!" hahahah! 笑鬼死. 你young D喎, 洗唔洗透呀? :) definition, 我都有少少唔清楚... 我一睇個題目就覺得應該係golden classics, oldies... 所以我覺得80s唔算... 不過有人寫90s... anyway, 各行其是, 無所謂啦.

uncle ray said...

寫味寫lor, 做セ要提我大過你woh :(

Kajie said...

你聽歌的品味委受你的Dad影響啊!

btw, i guess ANDY will feel interested in this topic, hey, tag him la!

for me, i have to think think wor...hehe..

Kajie said...

hmmm..first come to my mind is Billie Holiday or Bee Gees wor!

PK_ said...

md & ldd,
http://pkblog.org/?p=1548
just a wild attempt!

aulina said...

五師兄唔young呀,大過我架(好似一兩個月掛)。

接就接咗喇,不過真係大家對「經典」定義有少少唔同囉,好明顯我個聽英文歌年代後你好多,同埋你講至愛嘛,早過我貼果啲我又真係冇乜邊首愛喎,好聽,你貼果啲都好聽,不過唔係愛囉。:P

寫完先諗起,唔對路喎,點解會冇Beatles呢?Phil Collins都整隻丫一係,個結果都係,識就識,好聽就好聽,但係真係唔係愛。

mad dog said...

uncle ray: 哈哈! 咪小器啦! :)

kajie: 我都有諗過tag Andy, 不過佢近來做老豆咁忙, 未必得閒睬我囉.

pk_: nice try! Beatles 條track較多雜聲.

aulina: 真係個題目唔太夠清晰... 五師兄young過我嘛...

程霜 said...

Carpenters 的經典還包括: Yesterday Once More, Close to you, I won't last a Day without You, We've only just begun.

mad dog said...

程霜: 係呀, 不過最深刻印象同鍾意都係close to you同rainy days and mondays.

PK_ said...

beatles個版mono又嘈。。。可以整好d,不過求其左。。。。。。 :P

mad dog said...

pk_: 你放響aulina/LDD個comment果D youtube links我幾好氣逐個睇哂歌名! 有D同我老公既心水都一樣, 佢係beatles同jazz迷.
我都鍾意"Hey You". 前排睇"The Squid and the Whale"齣戲, "Hey You"係theme song. 講一個八十年代既家庭. 有機會要睇呀!

梁巔巔 said...

PK_ 兄: 正!

犀利呀!
