聽歌:Mandy

印象中,與西洋歌曲接觸,都是因為同學的關係。
而我的西洋老歌的啟蒙者,應該是黃鶯鶯與周華健。

當時的廣告,很喜歡搭配上西洋老歌,
在多年後的今天,我才知道原來華健大叔在我小的時候,
曾經出過Sounds of Birds
裡面收錄了許多很棒的歌曲。

記得小時的自己,最愛不釋手的,
應該是黃鶯鶯的溫柔火戰車以及周華健的I remember這兩張專輯吧。
在那個還是錄音帶的時代,
就放在錄音機裡面,反覆聽反覆聽反覆聽。

今天早上,想起了這一首Mandy的這首歌,
忍不住上網找尋這個Westlife版本,更好聽呢!
用這首,想念那個25年前的遙遠時光吧。

"Mandy"
I remember all my life
Raining down as cold as ice
Shadows of a man
A face through a window
Crying in the night
The night goes into

Morning, just another day
Happy people pass my way
Looking in their eyes
I see a memory
I never realized
How happy you made me oh Mandy

[Chorus:]
Well you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
Well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

I'm standing on the edge of time
I Walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world of uphill climbing
The tears are on my mind
And nothing is rhyming, oh Mandy

[Chorus]

Yesterday's a dream I face the morning
Crying on the breeze
The pain is calling, oh Mandy

[Chorus]

You came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
Well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you...

Oh Mandy won't you listen to what I've got to say
Oh Mandy don't you let me throw it all away
Oh Mandy won't you listen to what I've got to say
And I need you today, oh Mandy
