Moonlight shadow


以下轉載自知識+
這是一首麥克歐菲爾德( Mike Oldfield )為紀念約翰藍儂所寫的歌,收錄在1983年的專輯「Crises 危機」中,由“英國女歌手Maggie Reilly“ 擔綱演唱,後面有關於這位歌者背景的英文簡介。歌中出現多次的她,應是指約翰藍儂日裔美籍的妻子小野洋子 ( Yoko Ono )。

  1980年12月8日深夜,他錄完音回到紐約曼哈頓中央公園自家住宅門前,黑暗中竄出一個人影,喊了一聲他的名字,然後對著他連開六槍,約翰藍儂中槍後倒 地不起,於送醫途中死亡,殘年四十歲。警方事後調查,發現兇嫌馬克大衛查普曼,來自檀香山,二十五歲,是披頭四的歌迷,極度崇拜約翰藍儂,有雙重人格及精 神分裂傾向。

 警方還發現,約翰藍儂死前數小時,曾在住所外為槍殺他的兇手馬克大衛查普曼 在自己的專輯唱片「Double Fantasy雙重幻象」(如圖)上簽名 ,唱片封面是約翰藍儂與妻子小野洋子擁吻的畫面,是兩人的音樂心血結晶,上面除了簽名,還押上他過世的年份1980年。

 這張約翰藍儂親 筆簽名的專輯,於2003年11月進行網路拍賣,不願透露姓名的擁有者表示,自己是「披頭四」的終生忠實歌迷,他在該公寓外的花圃發現這張專輯後,曾經交 給警方做為證物,因為上面有兇手查普曼的指紋。這張唱片在網站拍賣後,比底價471000歐元高出54000元,以525000歐元的價錢賣出。

* (註)這首歌中隱喻不少,甚至有些片語的用法在字典裡根本查不到,相當不好翻。Caught in the middle of a hundred and five這句話應該翻成:在一百零五的中間被捕,但什麼意思實在不懂,在下翻了不少資料也無法參透玄機,請外國網友解釋,也只得到一些模稜兩可的答案。有 位外國網友認為應該是指當晚的氣溫,另有一位台灣樂友請教外國友人,認為應該是事發地點的門牌號碼剛好是105號,但這個解釋也只能當作參考。只好暫時列 入 X檔案,期待高明指點。



The last that ever she saw him
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
He passed on worried and warning
Carried away by a moonlight shadow

Lost in a riddle that saturday night
Far away on the other side
He was caught in the middle of a desperate fight
And she couldn't find how to push through

The trees that whisper in the evening
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Sing a song of sorrow and grieving
Carried away by a moonlight shadow

All she saw was the silhouette of a gun
Far away on the other side
He was shot six times by a man on the run
And she couldn't find how to push through

I say, i pray
See you in heaven far away
I say, i pray
See you in heaven one day

Four am in the morning
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
I watched your vision forming
Carried away by a moonlight shadow

Stardust glowing in a silvery night
Far away on the other side
Will you come to talk to me this night
And she couldn't find how to push through

I say, i pray
See you in heaven far away
I say, i pray
See you in heaven one day

Caught in the middle of a hundred and five
Ooh, ooh, ooh
The night was heavy and the air was alive
But she couldn't find how to push through

Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Carried away by a moonlight shadow

Lost in a riddle that saturday night
Far away on the other side
He was caught in the middle of a desperate fight
And she couldn't find how to push through

Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
