经典英文歌曲推介:yesterday once more

1. yesterday once more讲了什么故事

可以说这首歌演绎的就是歌手本人的故事,整首歌是怀旧而感伤的风格。我们不妨根据歌词来大胆想象一下它的情节。一开篇就介绍了“我”从小是个爱用收音机听歌的小歌迷,常常一边听歌一边做梦傻笑。后来“我”很忙(也许是谈恋爱去了),就很少用收音机听歌了。然而在遭遇了一些打击或者情场失意之后,“我”某天又打开了收音机。那些旧时光跟随着熟悉的旋律在“我”眼前浮现。那一首首老歌就跟久违的朋友一样在跟我倾诉着过往。

2. yesterday once more是谁唱的

yesterday once more是Carpenters(卡朋特乐队,也曾被译为“木匠乐队”)的经典之作。该组合由一对兄妹理查德·卡朋特和卡伦·卡朋特组成,在20世纪七八十年代非常风靡。哥哥理查德是个很有才华的人,唱歌、弹琴、创作样样精通,妹妹卡伦有着甜美出众的嗓音,于是哥哥甘心退居幕后,为妹妹写歌,伴奏。兄妹俩感情极深,一起创作出了很多脍炙人口的歌曲,比如close to you, yesterday once more, top of the world 等等。

3.致卡伦·卡朋特

或许真的是天妒英才吧,卡伦在32岁时就因为神经性厌食症离开了我们,这对哥哥理查德是个巨大的打击,就像歌词唱的那样,他多么希望yesterday once more啊。理查德曾写下这样一段话:

On February 4, 1983, I lost my sister, a dear friend, and my professional partner. The world lost a beautiful spirit. Karen had not only a voice that was heaven-sent, but a personality that warmed the lives of everyone who had met and known her. She was with us only 32 years. Though my family and I will never get over losing her at such an early age, we can take comfort in the marvelous legacy she left us all.

1983年2月4日,我失去了我的妹妹,我的挚友,我专业的搭档。世界上也少了一个美丽的灵魂。卡伦不仅有着天籁般的嗓音,她的人格更是温暖了每一个见过或是认识她的人。但她只陪我们走过了短短的32个年头。虽然我的家人和我对她的英年早逝永远无法释怀,但是她留给我们的伟大遗产也能让我们稍感宽慰了。
