1.Reflection of my life   The Marmalade (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iE9TNG8IQNI)


   這首歌三年前成為我的最愛,當時面臨考試的挫敗,沮喪的情緒在聽完歌後,即能稍緩,一首歌具備如此神力,妳說不將其列為最愛,對得起它嗎?


    歌曲為1969年發行,乃越戰軍人經歷戰場殘酷洗禮所寫,歌詞悲淒,無助,聽來震撼動人,正反映出我當時的片刻心情.本曲極適合正遭逢重大挫折或當兵數鰻頭者聽.詞曲雖悲情,但並未絕望,曲末仍表達求生欲望,希望您也能克服人生的困難,千萬別想不開啊!


The changing of sunlight to moonlight,
Reflections of my life
Oh, how they fill my eyes
The greetings of people in trouble
Reflection of my life/
Oh, how they fill my mind
All my sorrows, sad tomorrow
Take me back to my own home
All my crying,      Feel I'm dying, dying,
 Take me back to my own home
I'm changing, arranging, I'm changing
I'm changing, everything
Ahh, everything around me
The world is a bad place


A terrible place to live


 Oh, but I don't wanna die 


 


  2.Atlanta Rhythm Section - Do It Or Die http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOGMQUbJ4XE

     一首能激勵人心的動聽曲,勸慰世人,人生難免會有低潮,切勿懷憂喪志,面對困難加以解決是唯一可行之道,我曾將歌下載給一位面臨人生考驗的朋友聽,他說此曲曾帶來努力不懈的信心,才能完成生命中的重大的任務


Don't let your troubles make you cry
Don't waste a moment wonderin' why
When everything goes wrong
You have to go on
And do it or die
Do it or die now
Stand your ground
Don't let your bad breaks
go gettin' you down
Even when times get rough
And you've had enough
You still gotta try
Do it no matter what the people say
They don't even know you
Die before you let them stand in your way
(Don't you know that)
You should know that
life is a gamble all along
Winners or losers you keep rollin' on
So go on and roll the dice
You only live twice
So do it or die


 


3.blowing in the wind    Bob Dylan   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3t4g_1VoGw4


   作詞曲人Bob Dylan創作此反戰曲後,聲名大噪,歌曲動聽不說,歌詞以哲學的問語,娓娓道出對戰爭的無奈及對和平的渴望,許多世間的道理不須明說,答案自在人心,Bob Dylan雖才華洋溢,但上帝是公平的,他那五音不全的嗓音令人不敢恭維,聆聽此曲請選Peter,Paul&Mary三重唱,不聽你會後悔.

4.Imagine   John lennon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okd3hLlvvLw


     此曲已被Rolling Stone雜誌選為史上最重要的500首西洋歌曲之第三名,即可知其顯赫威名,顯赫之因包括:Lennon本人就是西洋音樂史上最頂尖人物之一,此曲同被譽為越戰時期重要的反戰曲,歌曲中冥想著人類未來在烏托邦的和平境界中,不分彼此,互信互愛的大同世界中……


 








Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…
You may say I am a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one



            


幻想世上沒有天堂
這很容易,只要你試試看
在我們腳下沒有地獄
頭頂上只有一片藍天
幻想所有的人
都為今天而努力活著……
幻想這世上沒有國界
試試看,這並不難
沒有殺戮,沒有犧牲
也沒有宗教之分
幻想全人類
都生活在和平之中
幻想這世界沒有佔有
我在想你能否做到
不再貪婪,沒有飢餓
四海皆兄弟
幻想全人類
共享這美麗世界
你可以說我在作白日夢
但我並非唯一的一個
但願有一天,你能加入我們
全世界就像一家人



5.Your Song    Elton John  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13GD78Bmo8s


     Elton John 是我最喜愛的歌星,這位被譽為二十世紀的音樂才子唱過一大堆好歌,四年前曾到台北中山足球場開演唱會,演唱當晚在雨中聆聽那一首首曾經那麼熟悉的曲子,令人永生難忘.

   這首your song可能是他未發跡前,將完成的曲子送給心儀對象.


    It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you
And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

在內心深處 我知道這有點可笑
我不是輕易逃避的人
我沒有很多的錢 但是只要我努力
我將會讓我倆住在一棟大房子裡
假如我是個雕刻家 或者誰知道呢 也許是個巡迴表演者吧
我知道這不夠好 但這是我能力所及的
而這首歌就是要送給妳的禮物
妳可以告訴任何人 這是為妳而做的歌
歌可能很簡單 但是卻是我的心意
希望妳不要介意 我把這樣的感覺寫進歌詞裡
妳的到來使我的生命多采多姿
坐在屋頂 踢弄著苔蘚
吟著詩韻
但當我寫這首歌時 陽光是如此的溫和
就是送給妳的歌 就是妳使我的生命充實的
原諒我的健忘 健忘是否歡樂或憂鬱
不管如何 我想要說的是 妳的眼神是我所見過最甜蜜的




  6.Canon   Pachelbel    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I3j-yOz2Dto


    與巴哈同時代的帕海貝爾被人傳誦的曲目不多,但這首卡農卻經常出現在電影配樂,電視廣告中,因為優美動聽,不像古典音樂那般曲高和寡.此曲經由各種樂器演奏都很好聽,但我最喜歡由George Winston以鋼琴彈奏最為動聽.You Tube有他的現場彈奏.


7.Gabriel’s Oboe   Ennio Morricone   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvBT9sqXnew


     二十多年前曾看過一部勞勃.狄尼洛主演的影片"教會",其配樂讓我留下深刻印象,後來買了CD,其中這首Gabriel’s Oboe越聽越好聽,能讓煩雜的心靈頓時寧靜,如同置身於莊嚴的教堂禱告一般.


   可先從You Tube欣賞Ennio Morricone親自指揮此曲.


 


8.Sei Lob und Preis mit Ehren,BWV167    Bach  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ic3fY1skAIw


     馬友友曾在十年前出過一張可能已絕版的巴哈CD,simply Baroque,其中第一首曲子就很好聽, You Tube能聽到此曲,另外第三首也非常好聽,Jesus,bleibet meine freude,BWV147


 


9.Fall in Love   小林明子  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BQ2145ecrs


    一首膾炙人口的日本老歌,讓人聽得蕩氣迴腸,每每陶醉其中,可能歌有魔力,聽了讓人有陷入迷戀之感,從英文歌詞推敲,似乎描述著失戀的痛楚,近來有另一位日本歌星夏川里美唱的淚光閃閃也好聽.


 


10秋蟬   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lh--S598g9Y


     我是民歌世代的人,雖然不像大多數人在大學校園中那麼貼近民歌,二十歲時的我正在金門當大頭兵(很慘),但仍受到首首好聽民歌的感召,每回有民歌演唱,總儘可能到現場讓歌聲緬懷往日.另有兩首也很棒,讓我們看雲去和鄭怡的微光中的歌吟.


      我手機中約有三十多首最精華的曲子,台灣歌很少,但有首很"聳"但夠力又好聽的歌被納入,林淑蓉及羅時豐的"無言的結局",聽說有位白目歌手在別人婚宴上唱此歌,快讓新人昏倒,其他人臉上都出現三條線,我倒希望改天結婚紀念日,請人唱唱這首我最愛的台灣歌,看看是否會有"代誌"花生.
