In memory of Michael Jackson

In 记忆的箱子 on 2009年06月28日 by Lanzi

洛杉矶时间2009年的6月25日,”KING OF POP” Michael Jackson离世。这个突发事件令世界震惊,数亿乐迷悲伤不止。Michael Jackson是我从小崇拜的偶像,看到网上一张张MJ的专辑和照片,伤感痛惜中不禁回想起年少时的爱乐往事,一切都历历在目。

还记得小时候放寒暑假被关在家中,电视也不允许看,所以我最爱的就是家中那台双卡收录机了。一遍又一遍地放着Michael Jackson的歌,不断地倒带不断地重放,跟着学唱,还常常因为放得太大声被邻居家的阿姨说话。可是我就是不能停止我对MJ的热爱,从那个年代听欧美流行乐长大的乐迷又有几个人没有模仿过MJ流转多变的歌声和出神入化的Moonwalk舞步?现在看来,也的的确确是毋容置疑的无法逾越的经典。

那个年代引进的唱片专辑很有限而且很贵,除了买引进版的卡带,更尤为关注从海外带进来的专辑,于是就会买很多空白磁带去跟当时乐迷圈子里的朋友交换翻录,然后自己做漂亮的封面和歌词页,把这些自制的卡带拷贝当成宝贝一样珍藏。当时最爱去逛延安路茂名路的中图公司,那边有好多喜欢的唱片,而门口就有人卖自己拷贝的带子,很有意思的。不过现如今在网上下载mp3和MV已经变得太过方便和平常,甚至很少人去买CD了,但我却特别怀念在双卡收录机上按下录音键的那个瞬间,怀念磁带转绕翻面那种很机械的过程,怀念那段千方百计找寻音乐的日子,即使是当时最烦心的磁带轧带的情形,现在想来也都是很美好的回忆。mp3刚出现的时候,我一度还非常抗拒,固执的用MD录歌来听。对我来说,从CD翻录到MD不仅是对音质的要求,其过程更是一种享受,而且每张MD都是那么精美漂亮,令人爱不释手。现在那满满一大盒的MD也成了我最最喜爱的收藏之一。从卡带到CD到MD,每一段时期都令人怀念,以后会不会怀念mp3?很难说,也许会,也许不会。

在资讯途径并不发达的当时,我主要是通过电台的音乐节目(上录音乐万花筒、立体声之友、滚石音乐杂志,不知道还有多少人记得?)和一本由中唱主办的《音像世界》杂志了解到了欧美和港台的流行音乐的资讯,每一期我都要翻看很多很多遍,梦想自己也能成为一个乐评人。那时候姑妈家就在现在的徐家汇公园、以前的中国唱片厂隔壁,所以每周都会去那边,很奇怪的是每次走到这条中唱所在的衡山路都感觉空气有些不一样,会随心地哼起歌来,心情格外愉悦。

总有些回忆是苦涩的,Michael Jackson的突然离世,又使我忍不住想起1993年6月24日,黄家驹在日本录节目时不幸意外坠台身亡,还有2003年4月1日的晚上,张国荣从香港中环东方文华酒店纵身一跃,同样的震惊,令人痛心。

那些已经离去的我所爱着的巨星,永远与音乐同在!

You’re always in my heart…

 
YOU ARE NOT ALONE

by Michael Jackson

Another day has gone
I’m still all alone
How could this be
You’re not here with me
You never said goodbye
Someone tell me why
Did you have to go
And leave my world so cold
Everyday I sit and ask myself
How did love slip away
Something whispers in my ear and says
That you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you’re far away
I am here to stay
You are not alone
I am here with you
Though we’re far apart
You’re always in my heart
You are not alone
All alone
Why, oh
Just the other night
I thought I heard you cry
Asking me to come
And hold you in my arms
I can hear your prayers
Your burdens I will bear
But first I need your hand
So forever can begin
Everyday I sit and ask myself
How did love slip away
Then something whispers in my ear and says
That you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you’re far away
I am here to stay
For you are not alone
I am here with you
Though we’re far apart
You’re always in my heart
And you are not alone
Oh…
Whisper three words and I’ll come runnin’
Fly…
And girl you know that I’ll be there
I’ll be there
You are not alone
I am here with you
Though you’re far away
I am here to stay
You are not alone
I am here with you
Though we’re far apart
You’re always in my heart
You are not alone(You are not alone)
For I am here with you(I am here with you)
Though you’re far away(Though you’re far away)
I am here to stay(And you with me)
For you are not alone(You’re always)
In my heart…..For I am here with you
Heart…..Though we’re far apart
Heart…..You’re always in my heart
For you are not alone
Not alone
You are not alone, you are not alone…
You just reach for me girl
In the morning in the evening
Not alone, not alone
And you with me, not alone
Oh, together, together…

  1. 看不出来啊,你还是他的大粉丝啊

  2. 以前的记忆总是那么美好,中山大学以前也出过音乐杂志,名字想了半天也没想起来。。

  3. 音乐还是记忆里的更值得回味,除了音乐和歌手本身,或许也是因为它的载体都有些故事,我想起老家那个某无线电厂生产的卡式录音机和Dangerous磁带了,不知道还存不存在了。ps. mullich,是音乐天堂吗?
