#1【听音乐 】   The Way We Were; RIP Marvin Hamlisch             Go Back


Memories,
Like the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures,
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were
Can it be that it was all so simple then?
Or has time re-written every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we? could we?
Memories, may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember...
The way we were...
The way we were...

What I Did For Love
Idina Menzel & Marvin Hamlish


Kiss today goodbye,
The sweetness and the sorrow.
Wish me luck, the same to you.
But I can't regret
What I did for love, what I did for love.
Look my eyes are dry.
The gift was ours to borrow.
It's as if we always knew,
And I won't forget what I did for love,
What I did for love.
Gone,
Love is never gone.
As we travel on,
Love's what we'll remember.
Kiss today goodbye,
And point me t'ward tomorrow.
We did what we had to do.
Won't forget, can't regret
What I did for love
What I did for love.
Love is never gone
As we travel one
Love's what we'll remember.
Kiss today goodbye.
Point me t'ward tomorrow
We did what we had to do.
Won't forget, can't regret
What I did for love.

好像现代的作曲家有两大类。一类是作品比作曲家有名。还有一类是作品少有人听,却被称为艺术家。

第一类是写了那些非常好听非常流行的歌曲的作曲家。歌曲非常好听,但很少有人知道作曲者是谁。第二类是所谓严肃音乐或艺术音乐的作曲家,作品少有人演出演唱,更少有人听。我虽然是个地道的古典音乐爱好者,但我一向认为第一类人是古典传统的真正继承者。我对现代音乐中那些写作没人听少有演奏的作曲家,没有什么好感。

写电影音乐《藏龙卧虎》的作曲家,比写歌剧《秦始皇》的作曲家,更受我尊敬。

Marvin Hamlisch 我没有听说过其人其名,但他写的这些歌曲的名字我到熟悉。他无疑是属于第一类。

Nobody Does It Better

Nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, you're the best

I wasn't looking but somehow you found me
It tried to hide from your love light
But like Heaven above me
The spy who loved me
Is keeping all my secrets safe tonight

And nobody does it better
Though sometimes I wish someone could
Nobody does it quite the way you do
Why'd you have to be so good?

The way that you hold me
Whenever you hold me
There's some kind of magic inside you
That keeps me from running
But just keep it coming
How'd you learn to do the things you do?

And nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, baby, darlin', you're the best

Baby, you're the best
Darlin', you're the best
Baby, you're the best
Baby, you're the best
Baby, you're the best
Baby, you're the best
