欧洲歌唱大赛:英国 76 岁老歌手让你爱不完

这个星期六 -- 5 月 26 日,欧洲歌唱大赛又来了!

读者都知道,我是 Eurovision 的忠实观众,特别关注英国的地位。

英国今年推出了 76 岁的老歌手 Engelbert Humperdinck,是参赛史上最老的男歌手。他的参赛歌曲叫:Love Will Set You Free --直译就是:爱让你自由。

听一听吧!曲子流畅,歌词单纯,民谣风味,淡淡忧郁,深情悠远,高阶处豪迈万里。这把嗓子,值得吹捧!歌曲听起来有似曾相似的感觉。一把旧吉他,一个历经风霜的老歌手,幽幽拉丁情歌风味,如此朴实不过的组合,实在触动心弦:

刚开始,我还不知道这歌手是谁,听都没听过,后来在开车路上,听到电台播放他几十年前的成名曲,Release Me ,让我恍然大悟,顿时有时空交错之感。

你听过 Release Me  这首老歌吗? “Please release me let me go, ’cause I don’t love you anymore” (“放我走吧,我已不再爱你…”)

如果你还太年轻,如才三十岁的勺子一样,可能没听过这首歌,现在就听一听吧:

今年 Eurovision 2012, Engelbert Humperdinck 的抒情参赛歌曲,歌词如下,我随手随便翻译一下,与君共享。

So graceful and pure 纯洁优雅
A smile bathed in light 光影中之笑靥
No matter the distance 时空不再
A miracle of sight 惊鸿一瞥

Though I should have known 早应知道
I could not turn away 无从告别
When faced with your beauty 凝视美丽如你
No reason can stay 将理智抛离

As you kiss him in the moonlight 瞥见你在月光下轻吻他
With heavy words I say 我寄语良深:

If you love someone 如果,你真爱上一个人,
Follow your heart  让你的心牵引你
‘Cause love comes once 因为--爱情只有一次
If you’re lucky enough 如果你幸运如斯
Though I’ll miss you forever 我将深爱着你
The hurt will run deep 心灵深处伤痛
Only love can set you free 唯有爱将让你自由

Trust in your dreams 坚信梦想
Run with no fear 无所惧向前奔驰
And if you should stumble 如果你绊倒了
Remember I’m near 切记:我就在你身旁

As a ghost I will walk 人生路上,我彷如灵魂
I’ll look deep in my soul 向心灵深处探索
I might find another 我或将寻获另一个真爱
You gave me that hope 是你赋予了我希望

So as you kiss him in the moonlight 瞥见你在月光下轻吻他
With heavy words I say 我寄语良深:

If you love someone 如果,你真爱上一个人,
Follow your heart  让你的心牵引你
‘Cause love comes once 因为--爱情只有一次
If you’re lucky enough 如果你幸运如斯
Though I’ll miss you forever 我将深爱着你
The hurt will run deep 心灵深处伤痛
Only love can set you free 唯有爱将让你自由

And if you love someone 如果,你真爱上一个人,
Follow your heart  让你的心牵引你
‘Cause love comes once 因为--爱情只有一次
If you’re lucky enough 如果你幸运如斯
Though I’ll miss you forever 我将深爱着你
The hurt will run deep 心灵深处伤痛
Only love can set you free 唯有爱将让你自由
