〈虞美人〉  

少年聽雨歌樓上,紅燭昏羅帳。

壯年聽雨客舟中,江闊雲低斷雁叫西風。 

而今聽雨僧廬下,鬢已星星也。

悲歡離合總無情,一任階前點滴到天明。

******************************************

這是宋人蔣捷透過聽雨,表達他自己對「少年、壯年、老年」三個人生階段不同境遇的感受。「人生無常又無奈」是他最終得到的感悟。

青少年時,我愛聽英文歌曲,是出於對歌者嗓音的喜好和悅耳的旋律。 中壯年後,再聽同樣的歌曲,我會探尋歌詞的涵意,並細心地感受歌者詮釋這首歌曲時,所釋放出的情感。

下面這首歌,我聽了幾十年了,也聽過無數位男或女歌者獻藝,包括美國貓王,我老覺得只有倆人拿捏得最好,唱出的味道彼此也不同,在這兒推薦給您分享:

[ Bridge Over Troubled Water ]

When you're weary, feeling small

When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all

I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough

And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will lay me down

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will lay me down

When you're down and out

When you're on the street

When evening falls so hard

I will comfort you

I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes

And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will lay me down

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl

Sail on by

Your time has come to shine

All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine

Oh, if you need a friend

I'm sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will ease your mind

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will ease your mind

Singers: Simon & Garfunkel
