Born Free 獅子与我 (1966)






Born Free 獅子与我

是一套半紀錄片式的電影,
由真人真事改編, 可算是早期環保電影。
一對在肯雅野生動物保護區工作的夫婦,
收養了三隻父母被殺了的小獅子,
兩隻送了動物園, 留下一隻(Elsa)在家中,
日子久了, 感情也深了,
獅子日漸長大, 是時侯要放回大自然了,
可是一種像父母對子女的心情困擾著他們,
一方面難捨難離, 另方面又怕獅子不習慣
野外生活, 而受傷害。
故事有喜有悲, 而主題曲更是流行一時。
作曲 John Barry
作詞Don Black

Matt Monro - Born Free 




Andy Williams



Words by Don Black and Music by John Barry
Oscar-winning title song from the 1966 film,

Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
生而享自由 如風又如草
Born free to follow your heart
Live free and beauty surrounds you
心本無所繫 喜樂自相隨
The world still astounds you
Each time you look at a star
雄獅走天涯 星辰盡肅然
Stay free,
where no walls divide you
You're free as the roaring tide
高牆擋不着 狂奔若海潮
So there's no need to hide
Born free, and life is worth living
艱難無需避 命運握手中

But only worth living'cause you're born free
(Stay free, where no walls divide you)
You're free as the roaring tide
So there's no need to hide
Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living'cause you're born free

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head,
they keep fallin'
So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'
But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm freeNothin's worryin' me
[trumpet]
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

"The Mom Song"


Get up nowGet up now
Get up out of bedWash your face
Brush your teeth
Comb your sleepyhead
Here's your clothes and your shoes
Hear the words I saidGet up now!
Get up and make your bedAre you hot?
Are you cold?Are you wearing that?
Where's your books and your lunch and your homework at?
Grab your coat and gloves and your scarf and hat
Don't forget! You gotta feed the cat
Eat your breakfast, the experts tell us it's the most important meal of all
Take your vitamins so you will grow up one day to be big and tall
Please remember the orthodontist will be seeing you at 3 today
Don't forget your piano lesson is this afternoon so you must play
Don't shovelChew slowly
But hurryThe bus is here
Be carefulCome back here
Did you wash behind your ears?
Play outside, don't play rough, will you just play fair?
Be polite, make a friend, don't forget to share
Work it out, wait your turn, never take a dare
Get along! Don't make me come down there
Clean your room, fold your clothes, put your stuff away
Make your bed, do it now, do we have all day?
Were you born in a barn? Would you like some hay?
Can you even hear a word I say?
Answer the phone! Get off the phone!
Don't sit so close, turn it down, no texting at the table
No more computer time tonight!
Your iPod's my iPod if you don't listen up
Where are you going and with whom and what time do you think you're coming home?
Saying thank you, please, excuse me makes you welcome everywhere you roam
You'll appreciate my wisdom someday when you're older and you're grown
Can't wait till you have a couple little children of your own
You'll thank me for the counsel
I gave you so willingly
But right now I thank you not to roll your eyes at me
Close your mouth when you chew, would appreciate
Take a bite maybe two of the stuff you hate
Use your fork, do not burp or I'll set you straight
Eat the food I put upon your plate
Get an A, get the door, don't get smart with me
Get a grip, get in here, I'll count to three
Get a job, get a life, get a PHD
Get a dose of,"I don't care who started it!
You're grounded until you're 36"
Get your story straight and tell the truth for once, for heaven's sake
And if all your friends jumped off a cliff would you jump, too?
If I've said it once, I've said at least a thousand times before
That you're too old to act this wayIt must be your father's DNA
Look at me when I am talking
Stand up straighter when you walk
A place for everything and everything must be in place
Stop crying or I'll give you something real to cry aboutOh!
Brush your teeth, wash your face, put your PJs on
Get in bed, get up here, say a prayer with mom
Don't forget, I love you
And tomorrow we will do this all again because a mom's work never ends
You don't need the reason why
Because, because, because, because
I said so, I said so, I said so, I said so
I'm the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom!!Ta da!!!

高僧未說法

高僧未說法 - 李家同

我這一輩子,常有一種慾望,希望能夠聽到一位有學問的高僧說法,而且使我感動得立刻點頭,可惜這種機會實在不多,我有時會點頭,但點頭卻是因為我有些想睡覺。 我自己有時也會出去演講,好幾次中午吃了午飯以後演講,有人真的在下面鼾聲大作。他點頭了,可惜不是因為我講得有多好。 前些日子,我到德蘭中心去,中心的走廊裡站了一位老法師,說他老,一點兒也不為過,因為他不僅走路走得很慢,即使轉身的動作,也只能慢慢地做。老法師一手拄著一根柺杖,一手拿著一個小袋子,看來他是要將小袋子裡的東西送給德蘭中心的孩子們。 我將一位修女請出來招呼老法師,修女將袋子接過去,除了一再謝謝以外,也問他是怎麼來的,老法師告訴修女,他走來的。當時修女就嚇了一跳,德蘭中心在新竹鄉下,門口的道路應該算是一條公路,汽車開得很快的,也沒有人行道,老法師如何走過來呢?我站在旁邊,就自告奮勇要送老法師回去,老法師非常爽快地答應了。 雖然老法師住得不遠,可是我盤算了一下,以他走路的速度來看,至少要一個小時才走得到,下了車以後,修女左謝右謝,一再地講,將來如果他有東西送給孩子們,實在不必親自送來,只要打個電話來,她們就會來拿。 修女告訴我,老法師常常來,過去都有人送,為什麼這次沒有人送?她也不清楚,每一次他來,都帶一小袋吃的東西來,這次就是一罐奶粉和一盒餅乾,看起來,這些食物大概是別人送他的,他節省了以後,就送給小朋友,這使我想起耶穌所說的話:「如果你有兩件內衣,就應該送一件給別人。」 這一位老法師,省吃儉用,慢慢地走到一所兒童中心,將愛與關懷送給小孩子們。任何人看到,都會感動的。老法師的身影,在我腦海中揮之不去。高僧未說法,我這個頑石已點頭了。 我即將退休,我知道退休以後,該做些什麼事。 (這是一個真實故事)■

The 101 Strings 輕音樂霸主




David L. Miller於1952年創辦的The 101 Strings 在約三十年中,
灌 錄超過一百張唱片, 指揮是Wilhelm Stephan.
101位樂師其實用上124件弦樂器,
成員中除了彈豎琴的女樂師之外, 全是男性。
他們主要是將當年最流行的歌曲改成大形弦樂版,
把耳熟能詳的調子結合弦樂搬到大演奏廳內,
非常受歡迎。






Mario Lanza 高音歌王 - 馬里奧蘭沙

近世三大男高音「Patrizio」「Domingo」及「Carreras」,
其中兩位都承認是聽Mario Lanza 長大的,
甚至有這樣的評語, 這三大高手都不及Mario Lanza,
現在可看看Mario Lanza 高歌名曲《Santa Lucia》的模樣


Mario Lanza-Santa Lucia(very rare)


可惜的是一代宗師,離不開酒精,
38歲就在醫院病逝,有說是死於毒品,
亦有傳言死於酒精.天才這種下場, 實在教人婉惜!

原聲版





Rod Stewart 的Jazz版最有味
This day and age we're living in Gives cause for apprehension
With speed and new invention And things like fourth dimension.
Yet we get a trifle weary With Mr. Einstein's theory.
So we must get down to earth at times
Relax relieve the tension
And no matter what the progress Or what may yet be proved
The simple facts of life are such They cannot be removed.]

You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.
And when two lovers woo
They still say, "I love you."
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.
Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date.
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate.
Woman needs man And man must have his mate
That no one can deny.
It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.
Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Dusty Springfield - Windmills Of Your Mind (1968)

Round, like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel.
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnaval balloon
Like a carousell that's turning
Running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on it's face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
Like a tunnel that you follow
To a tunnel of it's own
Down a hollow to a cavern
Where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving
In a half forgotten dream
Or the ripples from a pebble
Someone tosses in a stream.
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on it's face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
Keys that jingle in your pocket
Words that jangle your head
Why did summer go so quickly
Was it something that I said
Lovers walking allong the shore,
Leave their footprints in the sand
Was the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand
Pictures hanging in a hallway
And a fragment of this song
Half remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong
When you knew that it was over
Were you suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of her hair
Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
As the images unwind
Like the circle that you find
In the windmills of your mind
Pictures hanging in a hallway
And the fragment of this song
Half remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong
When you knew that it was over
Were you suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of her hair
Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Buttons and Bows - Dinah Shore (1948)





Buttons and Bows 是由卜合(Bob Hope)和珍羅素(Jane Russell)所主演

喜劇The Paleface的插曲, 可能電影沒有在香港放影過, 找不到中文譯名,

此曲最紅版本是Dinah Shore 所唱, 好像曾改成粵語版?




East is east and west is west
And the wrong one I have chose
Let's go where they keep on wearin'
Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows
Rings and things and buttons and bows.
Don't bury me in this prairie
Take me where the cement grows
Let's move down to some big town
Where they love a gal by the cut o' your clothes
And you'll stand out, In buttons and bows.
I'll love you in buckskin
Or skirts that you've homespun
But I'll love ya' longer, stronger where
Yer friends don't tote a gun
My bones denounce the buckboard bounce
And the cactus hurts my toes
Let's vamoose where gals keep a-usin'
Those silks and satins and linen that shows
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows.
--- Instrumental ---
Gimme eastern trimmin' where women are women
In high silk hose and peek-a-boo clothes
And French perfume that rocks the room
And I'm all yours in buttons and bows.
Buttons and bows, buttons and bows...

1960電影 (戰國英雄) Exodus

1947年猶太人發動在巴勒斯坦地區進行獨立運動,
一艘載著611個偷渡客被困於(Cyprus)塞浦路斯的港口內,
他們急於回國, 於是絕食抗議, 最終成功到達,
部份人參加地下組織, 武裝起義, 反抗英國統治,
最後如願以償, 以色列正式立國,
可惜從此与亞拉伯人種下不共戴天之仇!

Exodus - Trailer (1960)

Main Theme From Exodus

Andy Williams - This Land is Mine

This land is mine, God gave this land to me
This brave and ancient land to me
And when the morning sun reveals her hills and plain
Then I see a land where children can run free.
So take my hand and walk this land with me
And walk this lovely land with me
Though I am just a man, when you are by my side
With the help of God, I know I can be strong.

Though I am just a man, when you are by my side
With the help of God, I know I can be strong
To make this land our home
If I must fight, I'll fight to make this land our own
Until I die, this land is mine.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers 脂粉七雄(1954)







Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
荷李活早期的青春歌舞片,
跟據古羅馬傳說Rape of the Sabine Women
(在這裹Rape是解作搶掠, 即搶新娘) 改編而成,
片中沒有大明星, 演長兄的是當時的捧球員Howard Keel ,
其他的是舞蹈員和一位體操運動員。
全片沒有華麗的佈景, 但充滿大自然鄉村氣色,
而出色的歌舞令人眼界大開, 是經典之作!

以今日的標準來看, 這場歌舞的編排仍然是一流,
Polka本源自東歐波蘭等國,而這種美式Polka, 
本 來是農家青年的交誼舞,
由於節拍輕快易學, 現在亦常見於西方人的舞會上。



Bless your beautiful hide
Wherever you may be.
We ain't met yetBut I'm a willin' to bet
You're the gal for me.
Bless your beautiful hide
You're just as good as lost.
I don't know your name
But I'm a-stakin' my claim
Lest your eyes is crossed.
Oh, I'd swap my gun 'n' I'd swap my mule
Tho' whoever took it would be one big fool.
Or pay your way thru cookin' school.
If 'n you would say I do.
Bless your beautiful hide
Prepare to bend your knee.
And take that vowCause I'm tellin' you now,
You're the gal for me.
Pretty and trim but kinda slim.
Heavenly eyes but oh that size,
She's gotta be right to be the bride for me.
Bless her beautiful hide
Wherever she may be.
Bless your beautiful hide

Warsaw Concerto 華沙協奏曲

這是一首非常有氣勢而悅耳的樂曲,
電影Dangerous Moonlight 危險的月光(1941)相信沒有多少人看過,
但此曲的鋼琴前奏常會在電台廣播劇出現。
This magnificent piece of music comes from the British
wartime film "Dangerous Moonlight"
and starred Anton Walbrook as the Polish born RAF fighter pilot concert pianist.
The music was composed by Richard Addinsell

"如果某一天妳沒有笑過一次的話,
妳是浪費那一天了" - 卓別靈



Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...If you smile
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worth
while if you'll just...
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhileIf you'll just...
Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by..I
If you smile
Through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhileIf you'll just Smile...
That's the time you must keep on trying

You'll find that life is still worthwhile

[Hope] - Speech" of 1938--1940. Charlie Chaplin
電影1"The Great Dictator" 大獨裁者(1940)

以一個理髮師陰差陽錯, 被迫冒充希特拉的幻想橋段,
1940年美國還未參戰, 他用此片提醒美國人不要聽希魔的花言巧語,
用喜劇方式拍攝的政冶治電影。






http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZ3Ad7812MI




====================================


差利一生在舞台上帶給人類無盡的歡樂,
在政冶治觀點上同情弱勢社群和貧苦大眾,
不滿資本主義企業壓逼人民,
被美國政府懷疑是共產黨人,
1952年離開美國後, 便沒有再踏足此地!

In 1952, Chaplin left the US for what was intended as a brief trip home to the United Kingdom for the London premiere of Limelight. Hoover learned of the trip and negotiated with the Immigration and Naturalization Service to revoke Chaplin's re-entry permit. Chaplin decided not to re-enter the United States, writing; ".....Since the end of the last world war, I have been the object of lies and propaganda by powerful reactionary groups who, by their influence and by the aid of America's yellow press, have created an unhealthy atmosphere in which liberal-minded individuals can be singled out and persecuted. Under these conditions I find it virtually impossible to continue my motion-picture work, and I have therefore given up my residence in the United States."

Enjoy Yourself by Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians

You work and work for years and years, you're always on the go,
You never take a minute off, too busy makin' dough.
Some day, you say, you'll have your fun when you're a millionaire.
Imagine all the fun you'll have in your old rockin' chair.
Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think;
Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink.
The years go by as quickly as a wink,
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself,
It's later than you think.
You're gonna take that ocean trip,
no matter come what may,
You've got your reservations made,
but you just can't get away.
Next year, for sure, you'll see the world,
you'll really get around,
But how far can you travel when you're six feet underground?
Your heart of hearts, your dream of dreams,
your ravishing brunette,
She's left you and she's now become somebody else's pet,
Lay down that gun, don't try, my friend,
to reach the great beyond,
You'll have more fun by reaching for a redhead or a blonde!
Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think;
Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink.
The years go by as quickly as a wink, Enjoy yourself,
enjoy yourself, It's later than you think.
You never go to nightclubs and you just don't care to dance,
You don't have time for silly things like moonlight and romance,
You only think of dollar bills tied neatly in a stack,
But, when you kiss a dollar bill,
it doesn't kiss you back!

日頭猛做,到依家輕鬆下
食過晚飯, 要休息番一陣
大家暢敘, 無線有好節目
歡歡樂樂, 笑笑談談
我地齊齊倍伴你

另有攪笑版本

"Enjoy Yourself" (It's Later Than You Think)
西方國家的殯儀館佈置得很Cozy, 親友坐在死者的棺材旁,
懐念其生前往事或趣事, 作其"蓋棺論定", 很少哭哭啼啼。

此片是以二次大戰盟軍從英法海峽渡海,
反攻德軍的一埸"諾曼第"戰役為基楚,
詳述各場搶灘登陸戰及深入法國內陸的戰況,
雙方的軍事佈署等,都曾參考史實及老兵的回憶,
場面偉大, 但此片是少數拍於六十年代的黑白片。
主提音樂是保羅安加的作品, 流行一時。
