Vitamin C–Graduation

作者: 阿超 分类: 发现音乐 发布时间: 2017-07-21 13:02

美国许多大学毕业典礼惯例播放的歌曲,听着歌,沉浸在美好的回忆里,然后转身,各奔东西。也许,回忆永远比现实美丽。

Vitamin C原名为Colleen Ann Fitzpatrick,而她给人的感觉就像vitamin C一样,亲切而充满活力。这个1972年出生于新泽西州的女歌手最初的梦想是做一名舞蹈演员,在高中时沉迷舞蹈的她也开始加入一些乐队的演出。1988年,她获得了喜剧Hairspray中的一个角色,之后在1995年又参与了另一个电视剧的演出。在此期间,她组建了Eve’s Plum乐队,并担任主唱,前后发行了2张专辑,Envy和Cherry Alive。1999年单飞后,以她自己名字命名的专辑面市,并录制了流行单曲“Smile”。然而她真正的成功开始于2000年的这首“Graduation”,又名“Friends Forever”,当年美国每一个面临毕业的学生都听过,它几乎成为2000年的“圣歌”。

这首歌以舒缓的大提琴旋律开场,慢速说唱的前半段一直伴随着温柔的提琴声。而同时这首歌的节奏感也很强,鼓点同大提琴一样由始至终没有间断。

毕业了,你在想些什么呢?你的25岁将会怎样?你怀念美好的校园生活吗?它们是否会随着岁月慢慢流逝?你对过去有多怀念?你对将来有多期待?

And so we talked all night about the rest of our lives
Where we’re gonna be when we turn 25
I keep thinking times will never change
Keep on thinking things will always be the same
But when we leave this year we won’t be coming back
No more hanging out cause we’re on a different track
And if you got something that you need to say
You better say it right now cause you don’t have another day
Cause we’re moving on and we can’t slow down
These memories are playing like a film without sound
And I keep thinking of that night in June
I didn’t know much of love
But it came too soon
And there was me and you
And then we got real cool
Stay at home talking on the telephone with me
We’d get so excited, we’d get so scared
Laughing at our selves thinking life’s not fair
And this is how it feels

[1] – As we go on
We remember
All the times we
Had together
And as our lives change
Come whatever
We will still be
Friends Forever

So if we get the big jobs
And we make the big money
When we look back now
Will our jokes still be funny?
Will we still remember everything we learned in school?
Still be trying to break every single rule
Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man?
Can we ever find a job that won’t interfere with a tan?
I keep, I keep thinking that it’s not goodbye
Keep on thinking it’s a time to fly
And this is how it feels

[Repeat 1]

La, la, la, la:
Yeah, yeah, yeah
La, la, la, la:
We will still be friends forever

Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
Can we survive it out there?
Can we make it somehow?
I guess I thought that this would never end
And suddenly it’s like we’re women and men
Will the past be a shadow that will follow us ’round?
Will these memories fade when I leave this town
I keep, I keep thinking that it’s not goodbye
Keep on thinking it’s a time to fly
