舞蹈│【歌舞99】之69:今天Today

今天再來介紹一位名人─John Denver。

這位於1943年12月31日出生於飛官之家的美國傳奇鄉村民謠及美式民謠樂派歌手,他溫暖、樂觀、貼近生活且忠實反映『美國夢』的理想,成為美國流行文化的象徵之一,風靡於整個70年代,卻於1997年10月12日因乘坐自己駕駛的飛機失事墜海,雖然留下了遺憾,但也留下了不少作品傳世,包括Leaving, On a Jet Plane、Take Me Home Country Roads、Sunshine On My Shoulders、Annie’s Song、Back Home Again、I’m Sorry、Fly Away、My Sweet Ladies、Perhaps Love等等。

土風舞界則把這首今天Today改編成優美的華爾滋。當年在學校辦雙人舞之夜,可是必排或必點跳的舞碼呢!

這首今天Today為John Denver於1967年錄製,為當年美國百老匯及台灣美軍俱樂部最愛晚安曲喔!接下來請欣賞John Denver於1977年的現場演唱吧!

(歌詞)
Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
Ill taste your strawberries, Ill drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today

Ill be a dandy, and Ill be a rover
Youll know who I am by the songs that I sing
Ill feast at your table, Ill sleep in your clover
Who cares what the morrow shall bring

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
Ill taste your strawberries, Ill drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today

I cant be contented with yesterdays glory
I cant live on promises winter to spring
Today is my moment, now is my story
Ill laugh and Ill cry and Ill sing

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
Ill taste your strawberries, Ill drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
Ill taste your strawberries, Ill drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
ere I forget all the joy that is mine, today
