Rita MacNeil-Flying On Your Own


讓我先說句,時光匆匆!
驚覺,上一回寫這分類文章是在一年半前,正巧寫的也是加拿大歌手,Sarah McLachlan。
這樣吧!再來寫位加拿大的歌手,這位是鄉村歌手起家的Rita MacNeil,她也是出生於Nova Scotia。這一省出來的歌手還真是不少呢!
 

我是鄉村歌迷,她們的旋律總會帶給我一方平靜與快樂!那種平靜和快樂不同於聽單純的演奏曲,是多了一份想開口唱與起舞的催促動力!
事實上,我對Rita MacNeil並不熟,卻對這首Flying On Your Own有些熟。遺憾的,我一直以為這首是由Anne Murray所唱的,直到上個月,從新聞中得知Rita MacNeil在四月十六日過世了,她的一九八七年代表作Flying On Your Own再次被打歌,我才恍然知道她才是原唱者。
讓我默禱:願她現在與天使們飛翔在天際!
 

 
Flying On Your Own,這首歌感覺很勵志,歌詞很正面:傳達著我們都有堅強與懦弱的一面,但是我們都該相信,即使一個人很辛苦,心中也會有恐懼,但只要我們勇於踏出第一步,沒有什麼是我們辦不到的。
 
其實,這世界上有太多事情是我們辦不到的;但是這首歌多少是要給我們一點點推動吧!有些事,或許不見得去做就能有成就,但是,不作就永遠不知道,不是嗎?
互勉囉!
 
You were never more strong girl
You were never more alone
Once there was two, now there's just you
Your flying on your own

You were never more happy girl
You were never oh so blue
Once heartaches begin, nobody wins
Your flying on your own

And when you know the wings you ride
Can keep you in the sky
There isn't anyone holding back you
First you stumble, then you fall
You reach out and you fly
There isn't anything that you can't do

You were never more wise girl
You were never more a fool
Once you break through, its all up to you
Your flying on your own

You were never more together
You were never more apart
Once pieces of you, were all that you knew
Your flying on your own

And when you know the wings you ride
Can keep you in the sky
There isn't anyone holding back you
First you stumble, then you fall
You reach out and you fly
There isn't anything that you can't do

And when you know the wings you ride
Can keep you in the sky
There isn't anyone holding back you
First you stumble, then you fall
You reach out and you fly
There isn't anything that you can't do
 
 
這些天,我聽了一些她的歌,感覺喜歡的還不少呢!
以下就列出幾首:
 


Rita MacNeil -  I'll Accept The Rose Tonight



 

Rita MacNeil -We'll Reach The Sky Tonight



 

 
Rita MacNeil-She’s Called Nova Scotia
據說這首歌是她自己寫的,寫給自己的故鄉 Nova Scotia。很有蘇格蘭風味,我挺喜歡的,感覺像是站在高地遠眺蔚藍海岸的感覺。
 
 
她還有不少歌,在YouTube可以找到更多!
願大家都有美好的欣賞音樂時光!
