好像音乐月活动还没结束?要是结束了我就把标题撤掉。

听coalpilerd贴的《You Raise Me Up》,想起以前讨论过福音歌、黑人歌。考古找到不少歌,就单独开个帖。

我第一次听的You Raise Me Up是Westlife的版本,想当然地以为是教会福音歌。karoun说不是,福音音乐来源于黑人音乐,而You Raise Me Up是爱尔兰民歌。歌词里的在我受挫、低落时陪伴、支持我的你,既可以指世俗的父母、爱人,也可以指宗教的上帝、神灵。宗教场合也会唱这首歌,算是从世俗走入教堂的例子吧。

另有一首走向相反、从教堂步入世俗的歌是Amazing Grace,歌词是18世纪的英国诗人牧师John Newton写的,现在则成为美国大众文化里的一个标志,电影电视里到处听得到。旋律也很沉静、温暖、治愈系。贴个amicus喜欢的Judy Collins版本:

说起黑人音乐,小时候学过不少悲伤难忘的黑人歌,比如Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen:

还有一支叫Donna Donna的歌,讲一只眼神悲伤的小牛犊被绑在车里带去市场等待宰割。听着也像黑人歌,查了一下发现是纳粹时期创作的犹太歌。词曲都很悲哀低回;不过悲哀的歌词中有一段神奇的大笑的西风:
How the winds are laughing
They laugh with all their might
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
And half the summer's night
听民歌手Joan Baez唱的:

这些歌中给我印象最深的,是英国摇滚乐队The Animals翻唱的黑人歌曲The House of the Rising Sun。该House是新奥尔良的一个妓院。Animals几个西装革履、外表文雅、内心叛逆的英伦少年真像Beatles。音质高亮,过耳不忘。

这首歌也像第一、二首一样被无数人翻唱,包括前面的Joan Baez及Bob Dylan。Dolly Parton把歌词里的boy改成girl,把沉沦的嫖客变为沉沦的妓女。

除了The Animals,我还喜欢Sinead O'Connor的版本,像她本人一样沉静、神秘、柔中带刚、力度彪悍。karoun说如果The Animals是嫖客,Dolly Parton是风尘妓女,Sinead O'Connor就是妓院周围叫卖兜售的卖花姑娘……

附录以上歌曲的歌词,都很深刻……
1. You Raise Me Up
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary
When troubles come and my heart burdened be
Then I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me

You raise me up so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

There is no life - no life without it's hunger
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly
But when you come and I am filled with wonder
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity

You raise me up so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

You raise me up so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be
You raise me up to more than I can be


2. Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.


3. Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen
Nobody knows the trouble I've seen
Nobody knows my sorrow
Nobody knows the trouble I've seen
Glory, Hallelujah

Sometimes I'm up, sometimes
I'm down, ohh, yes Lord
Sometimes I'm almost
To the ground, oh yes, Lord

Nobody knows the trouble I've seen
Nobody knows but Jesus
Anybody knows the trouble I've seen
Glory, Hallelujah

If you got there before
I do, oh yes Lord
Tell all my friends, I'm
Coming too, oh yes Lord

Although you see me
Goin' on so, oh yes
I have my trials, here below
Ohh yes, Lord


4. Donna Donna
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 their might
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
And half the summer's night

Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna
Donna, Donna, Donna, Don

"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 whoever treasures freedom
Like the swallow has learned to fly


5. The House of the Rising Sun
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new bluejeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one
