Rhythm of the Rain – The Cascades

00:00/00:00

上周五在练习开大路,听着电台来了一首萧敬腾的Rhythm of the Rain,音乐响起后激动万分(当你很久很久很久没有听一首音乐,然后多年后再次听到的感觉便是如此),师傅虽没有注意到异常,实则我虽然人淡定地在开着普桑但眼睛里早已经没有红绿灯了,满满的都是阳光下驾驶着Alfa Romeo开在美国乡间大道上的感觉。几分钟后放完了我还久久沉浸在这爵士之旅中,默默赞叹了不愧是美式的经典曲目这音乐太棒了(但萧敬腾的嗓音似乎完完全全不适合唱这种),顺便还对基本0了解的萧敬腾加了不少印象分。

回家后第一件事就是上虾米放了The Cascades原版,雷声响起。再后来我就纳闷了,原来这原版的音乐连钢琴都没的,似乎在这音乐上我还更倾向白天听得那首..(总有种强烈的反差啊) 反复了几次,不得不承认这主唱之间真心有点差距..(应该不少是语言的问题)特别是萧敬腾强行深情用力发声的部分(难道是为了高点),惨不忍睹,要嘶哑不嘶哑要深沉不深沉,一到高音主唱人声就匿了,一到中音主唱中场休息又回来了..(他说AND THE PIANO, JASON HU(是HU吗)的腔调其实还不错)。

但是编曲上倒也说不出谁更胜一筹,萧版的应该是模拟爵士现场,很多地方没有那么平缓,也不柔和,人声更是不稳定。而原版的整体和音色相对更讨喜一点,毕竟是那个年代的东西,鼓声与和声都是那个风格,还是一样的味道~当然了最重要的原因绝对少不了原版主唱的英语发音(学美音)和邻家大男孩抒情时的嗓音(相比萧的”咱们家的孩子”的淘气样真是要好到天上去了)

总的来说,各有所爱,不都如此嘛。

Rhythm of the Rain

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain,
Telling me just what a fool I’ve been.
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain,
And let me be alone again.

The only girl I care about has gone away.
Looking for a brand new start!
But little does she know that when she left that day.
Along with her she took my heart.

Rain, please tell me now. Does that seem fair for her
To steal my heart away when she don’t care
I can’t love another, when my heart’s somewhere far away.

The only girl I care about has gone away.
Looking for a brand new start!
But little does she know that when she left that day.
Along with her she took my heart.

Rain, won’t you tell her that I love her so
Please ask the sun to set her heart aglow
Rain in her heart and let the love we knew start to grow.

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain,
Telling me just what a fool I’ve been.
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain,
And let me be alone again.

Oh, listen to the falling rain–pitter-patter…
