週二三事

蔡琴

那天逛阿麥,在播蔡琴6年前的《淡水小鎮原聲帶》,由鮑比達監製。店員說是一個劇場的錄音,看包裝,應該關於台灣淡水鎮的故事吧。寧靜的小房子裡流轉溫柔又堅實的聲音,當然毫不猶疑據為居有。

小時候姨丈很喜歡蔡琴,擁有她每隻唱片。小表妹解釋父親姓蔡,所以喜歡蔡琴(由此,小表妹好像也很喜歡蔡少芬,因為她也姓蔡。BTW,表妹現在一點也不小了,和我同年)。印象中的蔡琴總在唱「不要問我從哪裡來」,我不懂得欣賞民謠/高音,喉嚨黏著濃痰的爵士比較合意。口味開始淡化,多喝了茶,是因為生活的年輪在增長,不停負荷實在辛苦。

夏夜的空氣又濕又重,眼鏡常從鼻樑滑下來。躺在黏黏的床單上,歌聲輕輕吹拂著,彷彿把涼風帶來,也確切帶來過眼淚。

今天一切以慢動作進行。

晨鐘響了三次才施施然爬起來(這個動作其實無分季節)。巴士作勢在六時四十五分的路上拋錨,一拐一拐的。要不斷提醒自己眼盯著書,免得心情又煩起來。坐在辦公桌前,電腦還要跟你作對,發動了十分鐘,資料還是不出來。我還未喝一口水,來沖淡口內濃濃的咖啡味(所以早上,免得了我都不喜歡跟人說話)

在巡視過有否新品種薯片後回家,百貨店前的巴士站,隊伍排的長度橫跨四個巴士站頭。身子軟得向前彎了個蝦米型。編了兩頁工作紙,便怎麼也不願回到工作去了。

新聞

曾蔭權拍枱 你班懶鬼,放假都唔做野,淨係去打波,錯過晒機會 以後,放假都要睇住大陸無野發生先好放。港台被人插是為了體現強政勵治,以後打工仔唔畀放假都係因為強政勵治。

睇新聞見到曾特首個樣我都嚇親,驚訝原來家長式管治係咁意思...
等我試下返學時問下d細路
「where were you guys?」
「you should be working during the weekend!」
睇下佢地點反應。

You probably didn't mean it literally, just trying to point out that she is a Taiwanese campus folk song singer. And what other songs better represent Taiwanese campus folk songs than 橄欖樹?

The lyrics are from 橄欖樹, oringinal singer 齊豫 . 蔡琴 probably have sung it some time in her career, not sure. I guess she would rather sing "你的眼神 not that there is anything wrong with 橄欖樹 which is a great song and prompted plenty of silly college students to wander or walk the land I guess.

One great thing about 蔡琴 is she will never get any older, because she has never been young or cutesy.

More 蔡琴 here
Note: Only honestly done album covers from the 70s or so, nothing offensive unless you count bad "art direction." Just kidding, I like them personally, but then it's just me.

male 說...

For those "Hi-Fi" enthusiast in Hong Kong, 蔡琴's voice is a reference. And I think Donald is running a little bit too far! But still, he is much much better than Tung!

關於蔡琴...
第一次聽蔡琴是金大班的最後一夜
我媽喜歡一隻歌就會一直播
所以入了腦
亦染上了不停重播心水歌的習慣
後來DJ陳海琪有次播這隻歌
才知道在香港她買不到這隻唱片
要去台灣
那時我常常和太后到台灣探親
不覺得唱片來得不易

數年前在台北誠品買了你說的這張唱片給太后做手信
結果我聽多過佢聽

關於痰...
麥家碧在電台講過她不懂吐痰
所以覺得男人識吐痰好MAN
她喜歡某個喉嚨好似有痰的洋人男歌手
那人用那把痰聲唱過一首ALICE(是她的英文名)
她說"殺死人"

關於特首...
唔知邊個幫佢寫呢篇稿
佢老細不是叫人五天工作MEH?
寫D咁自相矛盾的稿給老細講
寫同講個個都有病

MissLee 說...

laichungleung︰係喎…鎖你,唔該,刪除左啦!失禮!

If she has never been young, then I have never been old! (我個樣,真係好細個嫁…)

Male︰我想我會慢慢補番蔡琴d音樂,真係好舒服啊!

Hayeley,我今日第一時間同學生分享左特首句話,佢地既反應都係咁囉 - MissLee你又拐個彎話我地!


蛋︰咪係囉,明明話5日,而家又話人懶,咁算點先!

隻cd真係好好聽,部份唱,部份純音樂,部份獨白。深夜聽更好。

港燦 說...

請教請教 : "淡水" OST 我見過綠色同啡色兩款 cover。知不知有何分別 ?

另除鮑比達手鋼琴外,是否包括陳秋霞作曲和演繹的 "偶然" ?

laichungleung 說...

This is some background info regarding the original soundtrack 機遇.

There is this link discussing the difference between the brown and green cover CDs which is linked from the aforementioned blog, included here separately for you clickaholics. Without links there won't be Web, right?

MissLee: you look younger than your age, I will take your word for it.

Hey, you may look little but you stand tall like a man (not literally). Bloggers don't have factcheckers like traditional news orgs ... and you flatly admitted your errors and even use "strike" to keep it there in all its glory, I tip my hat for you .... Above all, you don't seem too self-important or self-righteous, not to the extent that it's annoying anyway.

Enough bull sorry for taking up bandwidth and bytes.

bull the helena 說...

my chinese is just too bad. can you explain what 強政勵治 means? or does tsang explain what he says?

eggsplash 說...

hmmmm...
i think 強政勵治means to seize the day, stand strong and rule with a tight fist,
no flip-flopping

it could be a good thing I think...

eggsplash 說...

thanks laichungleung
原來我隻啡色封面機遇咁珍貴!
要鎖係保險箱至得

MissLee 說...

燦兄︰這支偶然是陳秋霞作曲徐志摩的詩。

laichungleung,you must be a die-hard music fan - I once read you writing a lot about music in other people's blog. Thanks a lot!! 那些黃綠版的資料介紹,實在詳盡得amazing!!

bull the helena 說...

強政勵治 means little if he doesn't say much about policies. don't even know how to judge if it's good or not.

one can also say 天人治國, 無為而治, 以民為本, 安定繁榮...

why would i want a "strong government?" isn't it the trend for decentralization of government? and what is the pros and cons of decentralization?
