聖誕節快樂開心


美國巨星歌姬[蘿貝塔弗萊克]──輕爵士/R&B/輕靈魂聖誕曲──[The Christmas Song/聖誕之歌]

 

 

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Jack Frost nipping at your nose

Yule-tide carols being sung by a choir

And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe

Help to make the season bright

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow

Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santas on his way

Hes loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh

And every mothers child is gonna spy

To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so Im offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to ninety-two

Although its been said many times, many ways

Merry Christmas to you!

 

 

 

1997年11 60歲的美國黑人巨星歌姬蘿貝塔.弗萊克(Roberta Flack)發行出道近30年來首張耶誕大碟[The Christmas Album/聖誕專輯]

由她本人,Jerry Barnes ,Robbie Buchanan ,Philip Hamilton共同製作, 翻唱許多耶誕曲經典, 獲得不錯評價.

200年, Punahele Productions重新出版這張大碟, 並改名[Holiday]

 

首支主打為[The Christmas Song/聖誕之歌],這是1945年由美國音樂人Bob Wells &Mel Tormé創作的聖誕歌曲經典

被許多歌手翻唱過

最著名的是

美國黑人歌手/鋼琴家納京高(Nat king Cole, 1919-1965)於1961年灌錄的第四版

蘿貝塔版本則被改編成一首輕爵士/R&B/輕靈魂風格的聖誕節

在緩慢的節奏間, 弗萊克的詮釋慵懶,浪漫,迷人

由於弗萊克當時聲勢下滑, 加上宣傳不多, [The Christmas Song]跟[The Christmas Album]並沒入排行榜,

但卻是頗具特色的重新演繹
