當聽眾長大了…

我終於把買了數星期的 "黃偉文十年選"放進車裡聽。聽著聽著發現自己的聽歌喜好跟以前(還是中學生時﹐即十多年以前)改變了很多。以前的我喜歡悅耳的聲音﹐偏重歌唱技巧﹐所以那時最愛聽王菲(天生一副歌喉…)﹐陳慧琳﹐梁詠琪(兩人都擁有一把很"choir"的聲音﹐以前唱choir就是用這種聲音)。
 
今天聽Wyman disc 2﹐才發現原來不知不覺間﹐學會了用心去聽歌﹐不單只用耳朵去聽。一首歌﹐若要帶出歌的靈魂﹐非投入用心唱不可。碟中劉美君重唱"大開眼戒"﹐以前聽會覺得(如我家姐所言)她的聲音很leung﹐今時今日聽﹐我愛她唱歌的收放自如和那份個人風格。然後再聽Wyman填詞經典–李蕙敏的"你沒有好結果"﹐依舊覺得她的聲音帶點吵耳和沙啞﹐但就是這種聲音﹐把歌詞中的忿恨更能表達得徹底。
 
喜歡hocc很大一個因素是因為她唱歌的那份投入﹐聽"神經痛"你感受到那椎心的痛﹐聽"再見露絲瑪利"你聽得出那份無奈﹐聽"未來"你聽得出那份憧憬。若要我去選擇﹐歌者的投入比技巧更為重要﹐一首歌之所以能感動人絕對非靠超卓的運氣/假音 /震音技巧﹐而是看聽眾的心有否被觸動。
 
這些令我回想起杜麗莎在"六樓後座"裡唱"海闊天空"給她那位想出唱片的兒子聽﹐技術性上她的歌唱技巧無容置疑﹐但她的聲音之所以能感動到人﹐是因為她聲音裡的感情。歌曲的靈魂﹐得靠歌者用豐富的感情賦予。
 
這又證明我真的老了﹐喜好口味不斷向另一層次進發…

    完完全全的認同!!!!!!! That\’s exactly what Anita Mui said la! 😛 See.. hocc has a good c fu!!dunno for me. I listen to songs to "release my feelings"… or listen to songs that makes me feel there\’s 共鳴 with how I feel at that moment of my life…. I think the lyrics matters a lot to me too. somehow… recently… the songs that "I am playing" (some I don\’t have the actual music but in my head la)… The Way or some sort of Christian songs… Somehow they\’re really getting me these days… (btw, how can u make your blog semi-transparent??) 向另一層次進發 is gooooooooood! Head another direction, get some fresh new start! Just ignore the first half of your very last comment la… =P

    Thanks for your 認同 🙂 Answer your question sin, I didn\’t do anything to make my blog semi-transparent. I guess it\’s just the theme that I picked…OH yea, Anita is always a good c fu la~ Just look at her students… horhorhorhorI like how you said the songs that "you\’re playing", I play songs in my head too..unfortunately, sometimes some terrible songs got into my head and it took a while for my brain to stop playing it. I\’ll try to ignore the 老 part la, that\’s unavoidable =P

    wowow, I have exact same comments!even the same song, sung by different singers will have a different feel..listen to "Love is the largest right", both Kary and Ronald Cheng sang them.. and they are of a different style.. and both of them are good!Kary is young, so she is "gig" in fighting for the "right"… however, listen to Ronald Cheng, he is not that aggressive any more.. u can feel the mo noi when u hear him sing the same song! this is the really cool part! Of course, lyrics plays a VERY important part in the song.. I think the melody is secondary to lyrics… good lyrics + good melody = GOOD songgood lyrics + bad melody = OK songbad lyrics + some melody = BAD song… u know, getting old = more experience and knowledge, and it\’s not a bad thing!
