無處寫憂懷35:藍色狂想,屬夜搖滾海

無處寫憂懷35:藍色狂想,屬夜搖滾海

    妹:是的,她是老哥的我同月同日生雙子知己,還兩個人一起研究Top40。所以,那句It's not very easy living all alone才那麼椎心!對吧?妹妹可以想像,酒哥哥在半夜突遇那首絕美的情歌,內心有多麼澎湃,不然怎麼會睡不著呢,還夜半起身披衣書寫至天明。現在想想,也是很浪漫,但就是少了瓶高粱相佐,否則妹妹在想,那篇一定在筆墨中酒香四溢!哀傷的詠嘆也是一種心靈重建嘛!

    我:那倒是,妹妹說得對,有首重建搖滾曲裡有句歌詞說,我們只是想跳舞,卻有人偷了我們的舞台(We just want to dance here, someone stole the stage)!

    妹問:是哪首歌唱的呀?老哥,你以前那幾年都不好好唸書,但歌詞倒是記得一清二楚!我深深覺得,你那三年花了不少時間聽歌,遇到喜歡的旋律與歌曲就去研究歌詞。剛好,錄音帶專輯裡大都是有附歌詞的,剛好滿足老哥的眼球慾望。另一方面,也是恰巧反應投影了老哥的心境。反正混也混了三年,全泡在那幾年搖滾的戰國時代音樂裡,又當了兩年兵,國家的債也還了,現在可以收心好好回到書本的世界了,重建自己,無債一身輕!

      我笑說:那首歌其實很輕快,是嬉皮搖滾樂。但有兩種版本,原版是前頭有清唱和聲的We Built This City!我個人比較喜歡那個版本!另一個版本就是直接在鼓聲節奏開唱,沒有那句歌名的鋪陳!

    妹驚訝問:你聽的那麼細呀!那等會這餐廳的現場樂團,不知會不會唱那種歌呢?你用那首歌考他們,會把人家考倒的!
    我:那考別首呀,考情歌他們應該比較會吧?就考把妹聖曲!
    妹問:把妹聖曲?這個我有興趣!那樣的歌在哥哥腦子裡應該有不少吧!

    我:但是那首歌有點久了,快十年了,所以我覺得藍色狂想的樂團應該會,不會還狂想個屁呢,一曲就倒!第一句歌詞就是So Long,說不定人家還唱過好幾回了呢!那是硬式搖滾樂團1981年的情歌,自那曲之後,後來陸續出現的情歌,越寫越棒!

"Waiting for a Girl Like You" is a 1981 power ballad by the British-American rock band Foreigner released as the second single from the album 4 (1981) and was co-written by Lou Gramm and Mick Jones. The opening motif was written by Ian McDonald and the distinctive synthesizer theme was performed by the then-little-known Thomas Dolby.

    妹:這家餐廳是今年才新開的,幸好會唱老哥口中的把妹聖歌!我看他們還唱的挺順的,唱得很嗨,人家還說這歌點的好呢,那老哥再考一首!
    我:好,那考黃昏姑娘喜歡的歌,那年冬天那首歌紅透半邊天,還紅到整個跨年後,是那個樂團的經典招牌情歌!

    後來我回老家過暑假時,很愛一個人在夕陽西下時坐在海邊聽音樂,或是月圓日晚餐後,就坐在海邊聽隨身聽,等著月亮自海平面升起,那樣的視聽環境極佳,只是也很孤單就是了!以今日,紀念昨日。我們以詩穿梭海上的雲,恰似那無墨的寸管,醉是天空裡的一齣默劇,如果失去那雙水汪汪的眼睛,我水汪汪的漂泊中,就沒有千絲萬縷的交錯!彷彿拋擲在心湖裡的漁線,垂釣起我裝滿感動的透明,如同搖滾的昨天。那曲子裡唱著:

Love, my love I gave it all
Thought I saw the light
When I heard you call
Life that we both could share
Has deserted me
Left me in despair
But now I stand alone with my pride
Fighting back the tears I never let myself cry

Foreigner - That Was Yesterday 1985
https://youtu.be/x34ZH5_GIKc?si=Adu8JpZXZEG9VUDI

"That Was Yesterday" is the second single taken from the album Agent Provocateur by the band Foreigner. This song was available in four versions, as a remixed single, an extended remix, an orchestral version, and the original mix. The song was written by Lou Gramm and Mick Jones, and the B-side "Two Different Worlds" is also of note for being the first solo-written Lou Gramm song to appear on a single.

Jones(主唱) regarded it as his favorite song from the album.

    歌就像酒一般,歷經時間的陳釀,再次回味,成為此時的心境投影,尤其是在剛退伍的此時聆聽,更是百感交集。因為她此生,都始終在故鄉裡浪裡,如同我在夢裡,潔白的投書。妹妹,後來在1985年秋天時,我回到老家海邊,用一首新曲紀念她。此身若是人海裡的舟子,也是一首妳放逐在人間的美麗的詩;水上,我以筆作槳,指揮了漾如管弦的漣漪,為妳劃破一池人海的靜水!

    妹:老哥,那妹妹知道了,你那幾年的心情起伏,都隨著你們習慣研究的Top40,擺盪!直到葉莉酒后的出現,你停止了Top40,她開始與你對酌,你轉而投影成書信裡活生生的文字。而那些文字,實際上都有著前幾年Top40的音樂作為墨底的。整個過程,就是那樣的輪廓。那之後呢,那年秋天有情歌嗎?因為,妹妹很好奇,你會聽到心裡去的情歌,都很精彩!她又是你心裡最美妙的甜蜜,也是最美好的祕密,說給妹妹聽,要乖!

Atlantic Starr Secret Lovers 1985 LYRICS
https://youtu.be/bs3adALN3VM?si=fyClwLwddnpfsI4x

"Secret Lovers", released in 1985, is the third single from As the Band Turns, the sixth album from American group Atlantic Starr. "Secret Lovers" was Atlantic Starr's true breakthrough hit on the pop charts in both the US and UK, though the group had previously minor pop and R&B hits in both countries. The flip side "When Love Calls" had previously been issued in the US in 1981 as a single (A&M Records AM-8634) and proved a substantial club success in the UK where its presence contributed to sales of "Secret Lovers".

    妹問:老哥,你在火車上認識他,是什麼感覺呢?後來你們倆還越聊越起勁,你還帶她到你老家海邊聽音樂聊音樂。
    我:這個嘛,一言以蔽之,
Secret Lover,與君初相識,猶似故人歸。
