排舞:雪鳥Snowbird

本週老師教我們排舞中級的雪鳥(snowbird)這首歌。這首歌有4個八拍,分別在第二個與第四個八拍加了兩拍。由於本首歌有270度與180度的旋轉,加上還有許多加拍的動作,所以星期三整個班級跳下來,舞步還算差強人意對了,但是音樂一放,就跟不上啦!老師很有耐心地安慰我們,說這首的確比較難,所以我們慢慢練。然而,我週五要請假,好在有youtube這工具,讓我找到了這首歌的影片,開心捏!


這首歌曲想必大家耳熟能詳,不過,我一聽歌時,我以為是木匠兄妹唱的,結果我搞錯了,原唱者是加拿大籍的Anne Murray於1970年所灌錄的歌曲。而且,這首歌也曾被貓王( Elvis Presley)所翻唱過喔!然而最廣為熟知的版本,還是Anne Murray所唱甜美版。此首歌也曾被列入加拿大50首最具影響影響力歌曲。

Anne Murray是第一位登入美國排行榜第一名的歌手,也因為她,為加拿大後起之秀,如Celine Dion等人,鋪陳了邁向國際的大道。


Snowbird的歌詞為
Snowbird
Anne Murray
Written by Gene MacLellan

Peaked at # 8 in 1970


Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean
The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green
The snowbird sings the song he always sings
And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring

When I was young my heart was young then, too
Anything that it would tell me, that's the thing that I would do
But now I feel such emptiness within
For the thing that I want most in life's the thing that I can't win

CHORUS
Spread your tiny wings and fly away
And take the snow back with you
Where it came from on that day
The one I love forever is untrue
And if I could you know that I would
Fly away with you

The breeze along the river seems to say
That he'll only break my heart again should I decide to stay
So, little snowbird, take me with you when you go
To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow

CHORUS


Yeah, if I could I know that I would fl-y-y-y-y away with you
