《白夜》:Say You,Say Me


 

        Say You,Say Me是中国听众接触得比较早的欧美经典歌曲之一,也许很多人都还能哼上一两段旋律,还记得演唱该曲的黑人歌星莱昂纳尔·里奇(Lionel Richie),但是却很少有人知道它是一部电影的插曲。

        拍摄于1985年的《白夜》(White Night)带有明显的美苏冷战对峙时期的风格。影片讲述了卓越的苏联芭蕾舞艺术家巴希利科夫,为了追求艺术,叛逃到了美国。但是后来因为一次事故,他乘坐的飞机却又不得不迫降到苏联。这部电影的高明之处在于根本没去叙述最初的逃亡,而是倒推,当一个叛徒突然被偶然事件抛回到他当初千方百计要逃出的祖国时,面对他的将是怎样的局面?

        影片开始的一出描绘绝望爱情的精彩现代舞,就会紧紧抓住你的心,剧中两个男演员在逃亡前合作的踢踏舞,也让人久久难忘。当然,这部影片给人留下最深刻印象的,还是那首 Say You,Say Me。黑人巨星莱昂纳尔·里奇凭借此曲获得了1986年第58届奥斯卡最佳歌曲奖。他那充满磁性的唱腔,充满深情的演绎,以及对歌曲节奏由慢到快和由快到慢的过渡的灵巧的把握,使得该曲成为了一首经久不衰的情歌经典。该曲出现在影片结束的时候,不过由于歌曲版权的关系,Say You,Say Me当年并没有收录在《白夜》的原声专辑中,而出现于莱昂纳尔·里奇1986年的第三张个人专辑「Dancing on the Ceiling」里面。

Say you, say me 
                                 ——Lionel Richie

Say you, say me
Say it for always, that's the way it should be
Say you, say me
Say it together, naturally

I had a dream I had an awesome dream
People in the park playing games in the dark
And what they played was a masquerade
And from behind of walls of doubt a voice was crying out
[Chorus]

As we go down life's lonesome highway
Seems the hardest thing to do is to find a friend or two
A helping hand - some one who understands
That when you feel you've lost your way
You've got some one there to say I'll show you
[Chorus]

So you think you know the answers - oh no
'cause the whole world has got you dancing
That's right - I'm telling you
It's time to start believing - oh yes
Believing who you are - you are a shining star
[Chorus]
