歌曲欣赏——Hallelujah

野马导言:今天是圣诞节。我们中国人对这个洋节日的熟悉程度和参与的热情近年来仍是有增无减。不过我们参与圣诞节还主要是图个热闹,并没有太多的宗教内涵。应该说,中国人民过圣诞节的积极意义还是显著的。最起码,它丰富了我们的生活,让我们多了些休闲消费的机会。

当然,以上并不是我想说的重点。我想说的重点是介绍一首与今天这个节日相关的歌曲。圣诞节嘛,当然是欢庆耶稣的降临人世,歌颂上帝的无上荣光。Hallelujah(哈里路亚)就是在今天要对上帝吟诵出来的赞美之词。所以,“Hallelujah”这首歌很适合在今天欣赏。但是今天介绍的这首Hallelujah并非那首旋律欢快的教堂合唱曲,而是分别由Leonard Cohen和Jeff Buckley演绎的一首同名歌曲。同一首歌在两位歌手的演绎下,呈现出完全不同的效果。Cohen的演唱宁静安详;而Buckley(这里有更多相关介绍)的演唱则多了几分激情……相信每个人在听完他们两位的演唱之后,都会有一种特别的感受。

先来听听Cohen的演唱:

再来感受一下Buchley的激情澎湃的演唱:

以下是这首歌的完整的歌词:

Hallelujah
I heard there was a secret chord
that David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this :
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing
HallelujahHallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah…Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrough ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And Fromyour lips she drew the Hallelujah
Baby I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew ya
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
But love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah
There was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show that to me do ya
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah
Well, maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned Fromlove
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
It’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken
HallelujahHallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah…
