Flowers Bloom

 

經典的美國美聲R&B的黑人團體「Boyz II Men」,曾在2006年冬天,特別於日本發行了一張全新的「Winter / Reflection」雙CD冬季專輯。這張專輯特別的地方是在日本限定推出,身為美國道地老牌的團體卻特替跑到地球另一邊的日本發行全新專輯,這種狀況實在少見。

 

關於專輯:

 

這張專輯分為雙CD、兩個部分,A碟「REFLECTIONS」中,「Boyz II Men」以道地的R&B,靈魂式的曲風重新去詮釋了許多膾炙人口的日本流行情歌包括: 《中島美嘉-WILL》、 《桑田佳祐-白色戀人們》、《可苦可樂 - 只在這裡盛開的花》、《放浪兄弟 Song For You》《化學超男子 -找尋著妳》。而在B碟「WINTER」中,「Boyz II Men」則以「底特律靈魂音樂(Motown)」的合音方式,重新詮釋六首著名的白色聖誕主題曲,不同於一般以往教會聖歌的吟唱方式,「Boyz II Men」將屬於他們的靈魂樂曲風也搓揉進了其中,讓平常沒有接觸教會聖歌的聽眾也能聆聽這些經典歌曲,少了一絲生硬也多了一份親切。

 

jamie-300.jpg  傑米鹿想說:

 

但實際上我拿到這張專輯的時候,B碟我根本就沒聽過幾次,對我來說我還是不太喜歡那樣子的歌曲,到是A碟裡的每一首歌真的都非常好聽,百聽不厭。我平常雖然有聽一些日文歌曲,但是涉獵不廣,大多時候還是只往R&B的方向去聽,比方《放浪兄弟》與《化學超男子》都是會注意的藝人,所以當時在唱片行開始發現這張專輯我真的非常興奮,把原本日式R&B的東西,交付給真的道道地地的西洋R&B歌手去翻唱,到底會呈現怎麼樣的風味,光是設想就已經令人感到興奮,更何況還是強到不行經典到不行的「Boyz II Men」!

 

而這張專輯真的也沒讓人失望,A碟所收入改編的5首歌,每一首都非常的有韻味,甚至可以說是超越了原曲不少,而因為是翻唱日文的作品,比起「Boyz II Men」原本的風格,似乎多了一絲日本文化的細膩與流行情歌的上口感,我想這是「Boyz II Men」原本自身的作品裡不太會出現的事情與曲風,所以我覺得這張專輯真的非常的難得,也令人感到興奮!

 

而其中我最喜歡的歌竟然不是我原先所聽過的那兩首作品《放浪兄弟 Song For You》《化學超男子 -找尋著妳》,而是可苦可樂的名曲《只在這裡盛開的花》,其中副歌的和聲堆疊真的會讓人渾身起雞皮疙瘩,真的有種悲壯與萬物荒蕪唯有此處花開的感覺,配合這張專輯的概念"冬季",更顯動人,意境與歌聲真的都很優美,在此推薦給大家!

Flowers Bloom Lyrics 歌詞
Artist(Band):Boyz II Men


(Nathan)
There is nothing glamorous in this simple town
But there’s this special flower that can only bloom right here
And all the heavy burdens in our heart,
Get carried away
The wind can smooth the wrinkles of the past


Like a dazzling reflection in the sky
I hear the distant calling of the ancient ripples of the sea
And I realise that your laughter reminds me
Of the soothing sound of the gentle ocean


(Wanya)
And your heart can’t cover up the look of loneliness
You don’t have to reveal it to me
But anytime you need it
These faces so familiar in your heart
Wait for you to reach to their hands


I want to know if that place
That I’ve been once before
Hasn’t ever changed
And remains the place that always will be there for me
Till the last goodbye ill cherish it
And I can’t stop looking back to see
That you’re smiling waving back at me
Gonna bite my lips not to cry
And I’m trying to fight this feeling
But the tears may get so hard to see
Ill be waiting for the day
We can reunite again
Where the flowers bloom
For Jus me and you


(Shawn)
There is something that the shadows can’t explain
Something so simple and so obvious, that we forget
Behind the cloudy surface of it all, if we look up above
We’ll see the sun shine illuminate everything we see
All the past and present faces here are all to stay
Each prayer wishes new memories
Im proud to have it all
These memories alive inside my heart
Blossoming vividly one by one


After the rain the roads are muddy and there’s puddles everywhere
And we clearly see all the footsteps in this journey thru this life we lead
And I pray these tears can find a way 
and can breathe life back into the day
When the weltered petals in my heart once again begin blossoming
And ill whisper to the ocean breeze and my wish will soar above the seas 
And a rainbow in the sky will appear for you and i
Glistening in the sun, shine for everyone


(Wanya, Shawn)
Hey, the only place where the flowers bloom
The only place where this wind can blow
The only place you can hear this song
The only place you can see these sign 
Hey, the only place where the flowers bloom
The only place where this wind can blow


(Shawn)
I want to know if that place
That I’ve been once before
Hasn’t ever changed
And remains the place that always will be there for me
And ill try to fight this feeling
But the tears may get so hard to see
Ill be waiting for the day
We can reunite again


(Wanya)
After the rain the roads are muddy and there’s puddles everywhere
And we clearly see the footsteps in this journey thru this life we lead
I try to fight this loneliness
But the tears may get so hard to see
Even thru the scars and memories
I won’t forget you and me
So radiantly shining thru
The horizon as it rises high
And the wind carries it star beneath the memories
Ooh still im waiting for you
