記得當時年紀小 -多那多那


這當然不是我的年代,這張出現在1960年。

雖然右邊播放器裡面有這首1960年的版本,不過我找到一個現場的版本也相當有feel。



這歌,是我學小提琴的前十首歌。學得時候,我根本不會什麼英文,也不曾聽過;但是總覺得有淡淡地哀傷感。老師同我說:「這是一首描寫牽牛去市場賣掉的歌」又說:「如果你覺得很哀傷,那我們就換一首好了」

於是,我從此之後沒再拉過這首歌。一輩子都不可能再拉這首歌。

關於這首歌:
Donna Donna
Joan Baez  取材自以色列民謠 希伯來文donna是自由。


英文歌詞如下
On a wagon bound for market
There's a calf with a mournful eye
High above him there's a swallow
Winging swiftly through the sky

How the winds are laughing
They laugh with all they might
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
And half the summer's night

Donna Donna Donna Donna
Donna Donna Donna Do
Donna Donna Donna Donna
Donna Donna Donna Do

"Stop complaining" said the farmer
Who told you a calf to be
Why don't you have wings to fly with
Like the swallow so proud and free

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
Never knowing the reason why
But who ever treasures freedom
Like the swallow has learned to fly

有一輛前往市場的牛車
跟著一隻眼神哀悽的小牛
在牠的頭上有一隻燕子
輕盈的飛過天空

風兒都在笑著
它們盡情的笑著
笑啊!笑啊!笑了一整天
笑到仲夏的午夜

多娜多娜多娜多娜
多娜多娜多娜多
多娜………
多娜……

別再抱怨了!農夫說
誰叫你是一隻牛呢?
誰叫你沒有一雙可以飛翔的翅膀
像燕子一樣既驕傲又自由

牛天生註定要被宰殺
從來沒人知道為什麼
但又有誰會珍惜自由
像燕子得學會飛行一樣

簡單的預言式歌詞,簡單的旋律,卻讓我十幾年不忘。音樂是共通的語言,從你聽到旋律開始,便在心中作工。

名為自由卻要被賣掉的小牛,
悲傷的宿命論。

對於當時不到七歲的我,實在太沉重了。


Need U Bad


這首歌名,近來成為我測驗英文程度的一種方式。


累了嗎?先聽首歌好嗎?

lyrics:

Need U Bad

Oh!

Ay baby weh you ah deal wit?
We come tru alot of tings you kno?
Wo wahamum to you?
Me make one likkle mistake you wan dun us?

[verse1]
If I had you back in my world
I would prove that I could be a better girl
Oh,oh,oh
If you let me back in
I would sho'nuff never never let you go again (hey baby)
I was so foolish to ever leave your side,
Searching for what was right before my eyes
It was me who didn't relize
'til it was gone but now i know I need you in my life

Boy I need you bad as my heartbeat, (bad like the food I eat)
Bad as the air I breath, (baby I want you bad)
I need you bad I cant take this pain, (bad I cant take this pain)
Boy Im bout to go insane, (baby I need you bad)
I need you
I need you
What I gotta do (baby I want you bad)
I need you
I need you
Do it all for you (baby I need you bad)

[verse2]
Baby there's nothing I wouldn't do
To get back what we had when love was true
(oh oh oh)
No lie i'd give up all I got
Just so I could get back in my spot (Ooooh)

[Repeat chorus]

[Hook]
When you want him so bad and
You gotta get him back say, oh oh oh oh
(oh oh oh oh)
Cause if wrong aint no better
Two you are together say, oh oh oh oh
(oh oh oh oh)
If you believe in love and
You cant give him up say, oh oh oh oh
(oh oh oh oh)
If there's nothing you wont do to get
Cack with your boo say Ooooooohhh

[Repeat chorus]


這首歌名,當然不是「需要你壞」。
Bad再這邊等於very much。簡單卻容易鬧笑話的小玩意。
