Rainy Days And Mondays

今天搭公車時,MP3剛好播放這首Rainy Days And Mondays.
ㄟ…還蠻符合今天雨天又是星期一.

我聽的不是 Carpenters唱的,而是小美女Emmy Rossum唱的.

不是第一次聽她的歌,或許是下雨的星期一,吸引著我更仔細聽.

說來奇怪,以前沒仔仔細細聽這首歌.

今天聽出這是一首蠻悲觀的歌,但印象Carpenters唱的,卻讓人感覺不出悲,個人談不上特別喜歡Carpenters,覺得旋律聽起來有點千篇一律.

而Emmy Rossum的唱腔和Carpenter十分不同,有點像是Sarah Brightman的清新脫俗,但又沒有她那種天籟般的高深功力;也因為這樣,特地查了一下她的”案底”,覺得她應該會前途無量.

2004年,剛滿18歲的她,就在大螢幕前展露頭角,在明天過後(The Day After Tomorrow) 及歌劇魅影(The Phantom of the Opera)都有不錯的表現;更了不起的是,其實她在7歲時,通過紐約Metropolitan Opera 的甄選,曾經演出超過20部,7種不同語言的歌劇.

來聽聽這首歌吧~
Carpenters版

Rainy Days And Mondays
Words and Music by: Paul Williams & Roger Nichols

Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old
Sometimes I’d like to quit
Nothing ever seems to fit
Hangin’ around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

What I’ve got they used to call the blues
Nothin’ is really wrong
Feelin’ like I don’t belong
Walkin’ around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny but it seems that it’s the only thing to do
Run and find the one who loves me.

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out
We know what it’s all about
Hangin’ around
Nothing to do but frown
Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down.

  4. 我還是喜歡Carpenters的版本
    有時候聽Carpenters會有種寂寞想哭的感覺…

  5. Carpenters偶而聽還好,聽多了,就覺得沒特色…
