:::「 蔡英文, Fuck You! 」

這個禮拜,我選擇的學習歌曲是     Les Miserables: I Dreamed A Dream (悲慘世界 : 我夢了一個夢)。

這首歌是美國百老匯 (Broadway) 三大歌劇 [Cat, The Phantom of Opera, Les Miserables](貓、歌劇魅影、悲慘世界)中悲慘世界(又名孤星淚)的代表作。

歌劇改編自法國大文豪雨果 (Victor Hugo) 的悲慘世界 (Les Miserables)。

我在大學時讀這本小說,其實沒什麼感覺。那時的我,意識型態算是右派,也就是比較接近達爾文的物競天擇。

不過,這些年的歲月,讓我看到、也感到資質不同的極限,對於環境限制下無奈的感覺比較可以瞭解,意識型態隨著年紀增長而左轉。和一般熱血青年越老越保守,剛好相反。

另一方面,我從正在讀的 John Adams 中看到 John Adams 和 Abigail Adams (John Adams 的太太) 描寫(法國大革命前)貴族窮奢極侈地展示財富,巴黎卻是滿街的乞丐妓女,貧富差距到令人無法想像。

也因此,在二十多年後的現在,在閱讀的記憶快要全部消失之際,我反而受到雨果的感動。

這首歌,我覺得 Sarah Brightman 唱得最好 :

Susan Boyle 當然不能不提的 :

美國現在當紅的節目 Glee 也來參了一腳,唱法味道大不相同 :

[ Sarah Brightman only:

There was a time, when men were kind
And their voices were soft
And their words were inviting
There was a time, when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time

and it all went wrong ]

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they turn your hope apart
As they turn your dreams to shame

He slept a summer by my side
He filled my dreams with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came

And still I dream he’d come to me
That we would live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather

I had a dream my life would be
So different from the hell I’m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed
