苏珊阿姨一曲Memory

苏珊阿姨 (Susan Boyle) 说,说到tube 这个词,我只知道,那是装Smarties巧克力的小筒子。

苏珊阿姨:只知道装smarties的tube,不知道YouTube。

现在才知道,有一种东西,叫YouTube。

上周六,苏珊阿姨以一曲Memory,杀入了大决赛。

苏珊阿姨以一曲经典的Memory,赢得公众选票,杀入了月底的《英国有才华》(Britain’s Got Talent) 大决赛。

英国广播公司以上一分半钟的剪辑,非常出色,温馨感人。你们自己去看一看吧。

Memory是著名音乐剧《猫》里的名曲。我十年前还在伦敦的时候,用学生票,买了便宜票,一年就看了三次。《猫》说不上是我最喜欢的音乐剧,但是,剧场和旋转舞台设计给我的震撼,非常难忘。

啊!一曲Memory,是我别了的青春。

以下唱这首曲子的,应该就是Elaine Paige。苏珊阿姨曾说,她想要当一名歌手,像Elaine Paige那样的巨星。

Daylight
See the dew on the sunflower
And a rose that is fading
Roses whither away
Like the sunflower
I yearn to turn my face to the dawn
I am waiting for the day . . .

Midnight
Not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory?
She is smiling alone
In the lamplight
The withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan

Memory
All alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

Every streetlamp
Seems to beat a fatalistic warning
Someone mutters
And the streetlamp gutters
And soon it will be morning

Daylight
I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I musn’t give in
When the dawn comes
Tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin

Burnt out ends of smoky days
The stale cold smell of morning
The streetlamp dies, another night is over
Another day is dawning

Touch me
It’s so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
If you touch me
You’ll understand what happiness is

Look
A new day has begun
