[音樂] Eva Cassidy-Songbird & 藤田惠美-挪威甘菊

無意之間,我聽到了這般天籟,好舒服,像是躺在秋天的托斯卡尼陽光下,享受和風徐來,看著平整上升又下降的地表面,喝一杯充滿蘋果蜂蜜香氣的氣泡酒,讓緩緩冒出的氣泡在舌間跟你玩一場遊戲。心情放鬆、任不烈的陽光隨意灑在身上,髮絲,誰管他到底是不是那麼整齊…
我只需要這般讓每一個毛孔打開,每個細胞都放鬆50%的聲音,陪伴著我… 一直、一直… …

「在流行音樂的歷史上,曾經陸續出現過好些生命短暫的歌唱奇才,他們有如彗星一般的留下絢爛的耀眼光芒,然後就永遠的消失,讓喜愛好歌的樂迷們喟嘆與惋惜。這一類的歌手之中最著名的,包括了韓克威廉斯(Hank Williams)、珍妮絲喬普琳(Janis Joplin)、吉姆克羅契(Jim Croce)和蜜妮萊普頓(Minnie Riperton)等等,不過他們至少都在過世之前就已經享有過廣大歌迷的喝采,但是依娃凱西迪(Eva
Cassidy)跟他們卻不一樣。雖然她生前就留下了好些錄音,可是始終沒有機會被比較大型的唱片公司發行,等到人們真正的發現了她的歌喉是如何動人的時候,她卻已經與世長辭了,只活了三十三歲…

上面這首 "Over the Rainbow"
大家都熟悉得不得了,有太多人翻唱,太多的版本,但 Eva Cassidy
唱得實在讓人印象深刻。除了這首之外,下面這首 "Fields of
Gold" 也非常推薦,我印象中的版本是藤田惠美(Emi
Fujita)的挪威甘菊(Camomile)專輯中的其中一首。我是為了準備婚禮中要用的音樂,索性一次下單買了兩張藤田惠美的專輯,而這兩張專輯讓我非常滿意,下面專輯封面圖片中有連結可以點過去試聽。


 

 

藤田惠美唱英文歌很空靈、很有味道,發音也還不錯,除了他的歌聲之外,音樂配得也很不錯,因此這兩張挪威甘菊一直都算是我的愛碟。這次聽到
Eva Cassidy
唱又是另一種爵士藍調的感覺,混著鄉村的味道,很值得把他貼出來讓大家一起品味。

Fields of
Gold

You”ll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You”ll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in the fields of gold

So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
Well forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in the fields of gold

See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold
I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that Ive broken
But I swear in the days still left
Well walk in the fields of gold
Well walk in the fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You”ll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in the fields of gold
When we walked in the fields of gold
When we walked in the fields of gold

 

也以這些歌曲送給連假中還要上班的朋友們…
