What a Difference a Day Made



前幾天找Slideshow背景音樂是否有更好的版本,跑了西門町的佳佳唱片一趟。這家唱片曾是我和朋友每次從南部來台北時朝聖的地方之一,因為再冷門的音樂大約都有70%以上的機率可找到或透過老闆訂到。買到需要的西低準備結帳時,意外看到Dinah Washington的西低正特價,看看曲目發現有「I could write a book」、「Easy living」和在1959年拿下葛萊美獎的經典歌「What a Difference a Day Made」,當場就決定買了。

對「What a Difference a Day Made」有特別的感情,它是第一首我可以完整唱完的英文歌曲。再來很喜歡Dinah Washington聲音的調調,雖沒有Ella的完美、也無比莉假日的憂鬱,可她的聲音有種力道有種樸實又親近的魅力牢牢抓住聽眾的耳朵。手邊有一張Dinah非常精采的專輯「The Best in Blues / Verve / 314537811-2」,說不愛藍調的人,聽完後每個都想借回家燒….喔!不!是借回家備份。



What a difference a day made
Twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain

My yesterday was blue, dear
Today I'm part of you, dear
My lonely nights are through, dear
(Since you said you were mine)

What a difference a day makes
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy
Since that moment of bliss
That thrilling kiss

(It's heaven when you find romance on your menu)
What a diff'rence a day made
And the difference is you

(What a difference a day makes)
(There's a rainbow before me)
(Skies above can't be stormy)
Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss

(It's heaven when you find romance on your menu)
What a difference a day made
And the difference is you

「I could write a book」也是首聽完通體舒暢的好歌,法蘭克辛納區桑有唱過,不過旋律較慢帶點哀傷,我個人覺得寫本書應該是開心的事,沒必要那麼悲情啦!YouTube上現在很流行拍自己唱歌的MV,得承認這個擠眉弄眼的老兄唱的還真不錯。



「Easy living」也是超有feel的經典好歌。這裡來聽聽一個演奏版本和一個演唱版本,請注意都是日本人喔!很有水準!讚呆了!(比變形金剛2還讚不知多少倍>____<)
