聖誕節耶

P1040936.jpg 

這是京都駅裡的一座大型音樂盒聖誕樹,會定時播放應景的歌曲。相較之下台灣的過節氣氛好像低一些,像我們,拖到今天才給辦公室放上第一個聖誕節裝飾品。

聖誕節的歌曲這個時候就會輪番出現,除了萬年經典「We Wish You a Merry Christmas」跟「Jingle bells」外,有些聖誕歌曲也很受歡迎。有個朋友就說,她的聖誕節「定番」(招牌),絕對是瑪麗亞凱莉的「All I Want For Christmas Is You」。

    
我承認,這首歌超級有FUU的,而且又搭過小南的日劇『29才のクリスマス』。

但對我這個年紀(含以上)的人來說,最有感情的當然是WHAM的「Last Christmas」。

  
就算我還蠻喜歡EXILE的,但我從來就不覺得將這首經典翻唱成日文很妥當。

不過如果要說我最喜歡的聖誕歌曲(不算以前報佳音的聖歌)的話,其實是「White Christmas」跟
「The Christmas Song」(對!我走老派路線臉紅紅.gif )。

【White Christmas】

這兩首歌都有很多人翻唱過,這是Bocelli的版本,跟IL DIVO一樣都有段都改唱義大利文

I'm dreaming of a white christmas,
just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
to hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white christmas,
just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
to hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white christmas,
with every christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright,
and may all your christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white christmas,
just like the ones I used to know
May your days be merry and bright,
and may all your christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white christmas,
with every christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright,
and may all your christmases be white

May your days be merry and bright,
and may all your christmases be white

And may all your christmases be white (All your christmases be white)
And may all your christmases be white (All your christmases be white)
And may all your christmases be
(All your christmases be white)
(All your christmases be white)

 

【The Christmas Song】

Mel Torme and Judy Garland合唱的爵士版本百聽不厭,只不過歌詞有點即興改編。

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, 
Jack Frost nipping on your nose, 
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir, 
And folks dressed up like Eskimos. 

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe, 
Help to make the season bright. 
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow, 
Will find it hard to sleep tonight. 

They know that Santa's on his way; 
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh. 
And every mother's child is going to spy, 
To see if reindeer really know how to fly. 

And so I'm offering this simple phrase, 
To kids from one to ninety-two, 
Although its been said many times, many ways, 
A very Merry Christmas to you.

 

無論哪首歌,都是每人心中深深的祝福,所以各位,Merry Christmas 我要去準備薑餅屋了
