Amazing:喬治麥可(George Michael)最後的傑作

現在只要在聖誕節前後聽到Last Chrismas這首歌,就會想到喬治麥可(George Michael)居然就是在聖誕節那天過世,真是令人不勝唏噓。

打從聽了Careless Whisper之後,我就一直注意喬治麥可這位歌手。我不只喜歡他的曲風而已,更因為他是真正的天才,至少對我來說他是。

喬治麥可雖然創作的歌曲數量不算多,但好聽的百分比卻非常的高,在我心目中站穩前三名,這就是我稱之天才的主要原因。

而且他狂放不羈,任憑才華縱橫,歌曲帶著一股奔放的自由,反應在他最擅長的曲風Dance-pop與抒情靈魂樂上,根本首首經典!

他生前第五張、也是最後一張專輯「Patience」中的主打歌「Amazing」,是一首輕快的Dance-pop;歌曲中加入巧妙的拍手聲以及柔和的原聲彈奏,讓這首歌充滿了活力,一下子就把我帶回80年代,那個POP最偉大的年代。

Patience專輯於2004年發行,Amazing最終取得了歐洲四個排行榜冠軍以及三個亞軍,成績不俗。在Billboard方面則是拿下舞曲榜、電音銷售榜、混音節目放送榜等三個冠軍。

我喜愛的歌手本就不多,最近幾年不知怎麼的有好幾位都相繼過世,頗令我難過。2016年底連喬治麥可也離開,只能透過那些散發他才華洋溢的經典歌曲來緬懷他了。

Amazing的歌詞與中文翻譯:

I was mixed up when you came to me
當你來找我時,我迷茫了
too broke to fix said ‘daddy get you gone, I’m missing my baby’
破碎的心還無法修復,說著:當初是我讓你走的,現在我想我的寶貝了
Still missing my baby…
一直都想著我的寶貝

I was stitched up by the hands of fate
我被命運之手捉弄
Said how you gonna make it on your own if luck is a lady?
說什麼如果運氣好的話你可以自己搞定
Maybe luck is a lady
或許運氣真的不錯

I was going down for the third time
我已吃了第三次敗仗
My heart was broken, I was not open to your suggestions
心碎了,沒能接受你的建議
I had so many questions
我有太多疑慮
That you just kissed away
但都被你吻掉了

Tell me, I guess that cupid was in disguise
告訴我,我猜是邱比特一直在掩飾
The day you walked in and changed my life
你走進並改變我人生的那一天
I think it’s amazing,
我覺得真的太神奇了
The way that love can set you free
愛讓你重獲自由

So now I walk in the midday sun
我正走在豔陽下
I never thought that my saviour would come
從沒想過救世主會出現
I think it’s amazing
我覺得真的太神奇了
I think it’s amazing
真的太神奇了

I think you’re amazing
你真的太神奇了

You tried to save me from myself
妳試圖把我拉出泥淖
Said ‘Darling ,kiss as many as you want!
說著:你想吻幾次就吻吧
My love’s still available
我的愛雖然唾手可得
And I know you’re insatiable’
但我知道你並不知足

We’re like victims of the same disease
我們就像同病相憐
Look at your Big Bad Daddy, and your mom
看看你爸和你媽
And your mom ….was always acting crazy
你媽總是那麼浮誇

I was going down for the third time
我已第三次吃敗仗
My heart was broken, I thought that loving you was out of the question
心碎了,我以為愛你是不可能的
Then I saw my reflection
然後我看到了自己的倒影
Saying please don’t let this go
正在說千萬不要放手

Tell me, I guess that cupid was in disguise
告訴我,我猜是邱比特一直在掩飾
The day you walked in and changed my life
你走進並改變我人生的那一天
I think it’s amazing,
我覺得真的太神奇了
The way that love can set you free
愛讓你重獲自由

So now I walk in the midday sun
我正走在正午的陽光下
I never thought that my saviour would come
從沒想過救世主會出現
I think it’s amazing
我覺得真的太神奇了
I think you’re amazing
你真的太神奇了

Celebrate the love of the one you’re with
慶祝和你再一起的這份愛
Celebrate, this life with you baby
慶祝此生和你在一起寶貝
I think you should celebrate yeah
我真的覺得你該好好慶祝
Don’t put your love in chains baby
別拴住你的愛寶貝
No no, walk in the midday sun
走在豔陽下
I thought I was dreaming
我覺得我在作夢
我覺得真的太神奇了
I think you’re amazing
你真的太神奇了

I said celebrate the love of the one you’re with
我說慶祝和你再一起的這份愛

As this life gets colder
隨著人生越來越冷
And the devil inside
內心也進駐了惡魔
Tells you to give up…
我就會叫你放棄…
