The Winner Takes It All

我有一个坏习惯,当某个点上喜欢上一首歌,就会一直不断的重复听。早上起来,会打开电脑,固定地播放同一首歌好几次才甘愿出门。上了车子,启动CD player,又重复地听着同一首歌曲,直到达目的地为止。不懂这是不是心理障碍的一种?

最近看了《Mamma Mia!》后,就中了Meryl Streep版本《The Winner Takes It All》的魔咒。ABBA的歌,对我而言,可以说是滚瓜烂熟。身为ABBA的歌迷,我进场看这戏也是冲着歌曲而来的。原先是没想到,ABBA的歌曲也可以改编得这么有趣,不失原味的同时,又带有本身的特色。片中一班演员唱歌,虽只属业余性质,不过胜在感情投入程度高,弥补了一些不足。

这是一首落寞伤感的歌曲,歌词主要是讲述一位失恋女孩的心绪。歌曲把爱情比喻成一场游戏,参与在其中的人必须好好依照规则,无论输赢都好都不该有任何埋怨。那位女孩就是这一场爱情游戏的输家,虽然很痛苦,但她接受了现实,不去怪任何人。不过歌词的中段又写到她很在意一些不应该在意的事情,感情就是这么的矛盾与难以捉摸。(But tell me does she kiss,like I used to kiss you? does it feel the same,When she calls your name? )

戏中的Meryl Streep就是在男主角的纠缠下,把这番藏在心底已久的痛苦,完完全全的抒发出来。据说这一段戏,是Meryl Streep "one take" 唱出来的。电影非舞台剧,多录个几次,再从中挑出个无懈可击的版本并非难事。由此可见可见导演要的,或也是观众要的,并非一首歌曲的完美演绎,而是像Meryl Streep如此般的角色投入,唱出淋漓尽致的情感起伏。最后一段,“I don't wanna talk......”,Meryl Streep以哽咽的声线唱出,更给歌曲添分。优美的旋律,伤感的文字,加上感情的投入,我真的找不到不喜欢的理由。

Mamma Mia! - The Winner Takes It All



ABBA - The Winner Takes It All



歌词

The Winner Takes It All
I don’t wanna talk
About the things we’ve gone through
Though it’s hurting me
Now it’s history
I’ve played all my cards
And that’s what you’ve done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play

The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
Beside the victory
That’s her destiny

I was in your arms
Thinking I belonged there
I figured it made sense
Building me a fence
Building me a home
Thinking I’d be strong there
But I was a fool
Playing by the rules

The gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
The winner takes it all
The loser has to fall
It’s simple and it’s plain
Why should I complain.

But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you?
Does it feel the same
When she calls your name?
Somewhere deep inside
You must know I miss you
But what can I say
Rules must be obeyed

The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all

I don’t wanna talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You’ve come to shake my hand
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence
But you see
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all......

真得很动听!看MerrylStreep的演绎,被她触动,情绪随之波动……好伤感。
我也很喜欢听ABBA的歌。

光亮 said...

我也和你一样,喜欢一首歌就不断地重复听那首歌。但,通常只维持一两个星期。lol

最近,我在youtube发现到好多好多的古典音乐。

Merryl Streep实力就是实力派,几乎什么角色都可以胜任。
ABBA经典的歌曲不少,除了这首,另一首chiquitita也是我的最爱。

古典音乐,是贝多芬、莫扎特、柴可夫斯基 的那种吗?是现场演绎吗?

好像重新编曲的比原版好听 :rf:

光亮 said...

嗯。。是的。如果有现场演绎会更好。哈...

各有千秋啦,有些歌曲我还是喜欢原装版。

光亮
