Loreena McKennitt – – Stolen Child


Stolen Child (1.3MB)
Poem – W.B. Yeats
Music – Loreena McKennitt
Artist – Loreena McKennitt
Album – Elemental

Where dips the rocky highland
Of sleuth wood in the lake
There lies a leafy island
Where flapping herons wake
The drowsy water rats
There we’ve hid our fairy vats
Full of berries
And of reddest stolen cherries.

{CHORUS}
Come away oh human child
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand
For the world’s more full of weeping
Than you can understand.

Where the wave of moonlight glosses
The dim grey sands with light
By far off furthest rosses
We foot it all the night
Weaving olden dances
Mingling hands and mingling glances
Till the moon has taken flight
To and fro we leap
And chase the frothy bubbles
Whilst the world is full of troubles
And is anxious in its sleep.

{CHORUS}
Where the wandering water gushes
From the hills above glen car
In pools among the rushes
That scarce could bathe a star
We seek for slumbering trout
And whispering in their ears
Give them unquiet dreams
Leaning softly out
From ferns that drop their tears
Over the young streams

{CHORUS}
Away with us he’s going
The solemned eyed
He’ll hear no more the lowing
Of the calves on the warm hillside
Or the kettle on the hob
Sing peace into his breast
Or see the brown mice bob
Round and round the oatmeal chest.

{CHORUS}
For the comes, the human child
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand
For the world’s more full of weeping
Than you can understand.

Seeds Of Love


Seeds Of Love (1.2MB)
Artist – Loreena McKennitt
Music – Loreena McKennitt
Lyrics – Traditional
Album – The Winter Garden

I sowed the seeds of love
I sowed them in the spring
I gathered them up in the morning so clear
When the small birds so sweetly sing
When the small birds so sweetly sing
The gardener was standing by
I asked him to choose for me
He chose for me the violet, the lily and the pink
But those I refused all three
But those I refused all three
The violet I did not like
Because it bloomed so soon
The lily and the pink I really over-think
So I thought I would wait till June
So I thought I would wait till June
In June there was a red rose bud
That is the flower for me
I often times have plucked that red rose bud
Till I gained the willow tree
Till I gained the willow tree
The willow tree will twist
The willow tree will twine
I often have wished
I was in the young man’s arms
Who once had the arms of mine
Who once had the arms of mine
I sowed the seeds of love
I sowed them in the spring
I gathered them up in the morning so soon
When the small birds so sweetly sing
When the small birds so sweetly sing

The Dark Night Of The Soul


The Dark Night Of The Soul (1.6MB)
Artist – Loreena McKennitt
Album – The Mask And Mirror

Upon a darkened night
the flame of love was burning in my breast
And by a lantern bright
I fled my house while all in quiet rest

Shrouded by the night
and by the secret stair I quickly fled
The veil concealed my eyes
while all within lay quiet as the dead

{CHORUS}
Oh night thou was my guide
oh night more loving than the rising sun
Oh night that joined the lover
to the beloved one
transforming each of them into the other

Upon that misty night
in secrecy, beyond such mortal sight
Without a guide or light
than that which burned so deeply in my heart

That fire t’was led me on
and shone more bright than of the midday sun
To where he waited still
it was a place where no one else could come

{CHORUS}
Within my pounding heart
which kept itself entirely for him
He fell into his sleep
beneath the cedars all my love I gave
And by the fortress walls
the wind would brush his hair against his brow
And with its smoothest hand
caressed my every sense it would allow

{CHORUS}
I lost myself to him
and laid my face upon my lovers breast
And care and grief grew dim
as in the mornings mist became the light
There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair
There they dimmed amongst the lilies fair


Loreena writes in the CD booklet about this song:

May, 1993 – Stratford … have been reading through the poetry of 15th century Spain, and I find myself drawn to one by the mystic writer and visionary St. John of the Cross; the untitled work is an exquisite, richly metaphoric love poem between himself and his god. It could pass as a love poem between any two at any time … His approach seems more akin to early Islamic or Judaic works in its more direct route to communication to his god … I have gone over three different translations of the poem, and am struck by how much a translation can alter our interpretation. Am reminded that most holy scriptures come to us in translation, resulting in a diversity of views.

Music by Loreena McKennitt
Lyrics by St. John of the Cross (San Juan de la Cruz), arr. and adapted by Loreena McKennitt
From: The mask and mirror (1994).

我的祖国(歌曲)

终于找到了郭兰英原唱的“我的祖国”(原本的歌名是“一条大河”)。一首气势磅礴的歌曲,儿时其中一首让我印象深刻的歌曲,也是后来在中学的时候加入合唱团的原因之一。但是老师不让唱这首歌,因为当时这首歌还算是禁歌。想来得多谢我的父母,懂得的禁歌还不少,哈哈哈… 除了这首,还有“洪湖水浪打浪”,“珊瑚颂”,“红梅赞”等等。(打这稿的时候在听着“三套车”,“三套车”当时不是禁歌)

(这首歌我没有压缩得太小,大概是2MB左右,需要一点时间上载)

我的祖国(电影《上甘岭》插曲) – – 郭兰英

一条大河波浪宽
风吹稻花香两岸
我家就在岸上住
听惯了艄公的号子
看惯了船上的白帆

这是美丽的祖国
是我生长的地方
在这片辽阔的土地上
到处都有明媚的风光

姑娘好像花一样
小伙儿心胸多宽广
为了开辟新天地
唤醒了沉睡的高山
让那河流改变了模样

这是英雄的祖国
是我生长的地方
在这片古老的土地上
到处都有青春的力量
 
好山好水好地方
条条大路都宽敞
朋友来了有好酒
若是那豺狼来了
迎接它的有猎枪

这是强大的祖国
是我生长的地方
在这片温暖的土地上
到处都有和平的阳光

后记:91年游北京,在一间餐厅用餐的时候,有文娱节目招待贵宾。当时一位女歌手应我们的要求,演唱这首歌曲,但是起音高了点,加上没有合唱的配称,她只唱了第一段,让我们接下去的旅程总觉得余音未了。

后来


后来 – – 刘若英

后来我总算学会了如何去爱
可惜你早已远去消失在人海
后来终于在眼泪中明白
有些人一旦错过就不再

桅子花白花瓣落在我蓝色百褶裙上
「爱你」你轻声说
我低下头闻见一阵芬芳
那个永恒的夜晚十七岁仲夏你吻我的那个夜晚
让我往后的时光每当有感叹
总想起当天的星光

那时候的爱情为什么就能那样简单
而又是为什么人年少时
一定要让深爱的人受伤
在这相似的深夜里你是否一样也在静静追悔感伤
如果当时我们能不那么倔强
现在也不那么遗憾

你都如何回忆我带着笑或是很沉默
这些年来有没有人能让你不寂寞

永远不会再重来
有一个男孩爱着那个女孩

忘不了(3)- -唱不完的歌

Earthtone来KL的时候,我们在车上唱歌给孩子听。她不知怎的就唱起“泥娃娃” — 泥娃娃,泥娃娃,一个泥娃娃….. 她是个假娃娃,不是个真娃娃,她没有亲爱的爸爸也没有妈妈….

什么儿歌?好悲,我绝不唱给小朋友听,因为我每次唱到没有爸爸妈妈我就要哭了。所以唱不完。

另外唱不完的歌还有“千万朵金达莱花”,很多人或许听过,但是不知道出自何处。这是朝鲜电影“卖花姑娘”的插曲,看这电影的时候我还很小,但是记得情节和歌曲,记得戏中的小姑娘去卖花赚钱买药给她病着的妈妈。后来来不及,妈妈还是去世了。这首歌我倒背如流,可是也每次唱到一半哽咽接不下去,因为电影里的情节忘不了。中学的时候音乐课有教这首歌,有一次施老师让我领唱,唱到一半眼红红,同学都不明就里,老师问是不是看过电影,我说是啰,她说这么感情丰富怎么上台表演。太投入了。

“卖花姑娘”的主题曲 – –


黑鸭子合唱组

另外一首很喜欢的歌,可是也是不能唱 — 不了情。为什么?不知道。


不了情 – – 顾媚

多一宝又如何唱?

想放这首歌很久了,记得的时候懒惰,不懒惰的时候不记得。终于今天又不懒惰又记得。很多朋友应该是听过了,再听无妨。

小朋友听了听问我:“What is that?” 我翻白眼:“歌曲啊。” 喜喜说:“I don’t like it!” 双双为表示她和妹妹不同:“I like it!”

歌曲:吉祥三宝
歌手:布仁巴雅尔

爸爸
哎!
太阳出来月亮回家了吗?
对拉!
星星出来太阳去哪里啦?
在天上!
我怎么找也找不到它?
它回家啦!
太阳星星月亮就是吉祥的一家!

妈妈
哎!
叶子绿了什么时候开花?
等夏天来了!
花儿红了果实能去摘吗?
等秋天到啦!
果实种在土里能发芽吗?
她会长大的!
花儿叶子果实就是吉祥的一家!

宝贝
啊?
爸爸像太阳照着妈妈!
那妈妈呢?
妈妈像绿叶托着红花!
我呢?
你像种子一样正在发芽!
我们三个就是吉祥如意的一家!
