《我也會愛上別人的》  

 

 

音樂本質:只有好聽或不好聽    

好聽辛曉琪

在這個20歲是潮流、30歲非主流、40歲就不入流的歌壇,

辛曉琪大姐發片這件事時具有指標意義的 -- 真正愛聽好音樂的人還未死光。

 

《我也會愛上別人的30首戀曲極選》不是隨便打包昔日成名曲來lelong大平賣,

一盒三張大片中,附了6首水準新作,加上她加盟滾石之前的翻譯曲《自私》

(她一鳴驚人之作)和國外藝人合作的單曲,各時期歌曲盡錄,真是一張策劃完整的精選盒。

 

 

姜是老的辣

《當大雨過後》、《我也會愛上別人的》、《你走之前》新加入CD1,

CD2的新作則有《我就要》、《最難的夢》和《誰啊》。姜是老的辣,

辛曉琪的爵士《誰啊》(似乎沒試過),還有那首中西合壁的《你走之前》,

不只編曲上刁鑽不老土,唱腔上還要長氣轉音配聲樂唱法,

辛曉琪真的狠狠給那些只會rap 的小朋友一個下馬威!

 

《當大雨過後》和《我就要》都是情歌寫手潘協慶的拿手好戲,

前者憂鬱(木吉他)、後者激動(鋼琴),辛曉琪一貫細緻的感情處理,

依舊為人贊嘆不已。《最難的夢》以手風琴帶你到遠方,是感情沉澱後的反省之作,

不適合主打流行一陣子,深藏在心堻怞n不過。

 

辛曉琪從前唱過好多棄婦的心聲,也很關照情婦的心酸,

原以為這首《我也會愛上別人的》選擇為多情種站台,

沒想到歌詞意境述的是

祝福你的新戀情,放心好了,我有能力展開新戀情,我也是會愛上別人的。

若你覺得從前哭哭啼啼的《味道》或《領悟》很drama,

那麼這首《我也會愛上別人的》仍足以保住辛曉琪drama queen 不動如山的地位。

副歌聽一遍就會唱了,曲式不如坐過山車,旋律平穩,作給一般大抒發心情時唱的。

 

懷念哥哥

 

CD3收錄難得的男女對唱曲,cut1一聽就抽搐,

相信至今仍有許多人十分懷念張國榮的歌聲,

《深情相擁》及《眉來眼去》都找得到張國榮優雅的聲勢,

後者還是一首粵語歌曲,你大概忘了辛曉琪也唱過廣東歌吧?

英文的部分有她跟早年台灣西洋老手金祖齡對唱的《The Prayer》,

是挺帕華洛帝之類的流行高音音階

 

如此聽下來,我只能說辛曉琪除了還沒有唱過舞曲之外,

幾乎各種類型的音樂都難不倒她。

Who knows? 也許有一天,她卯起勁來當舞場妖姬我也不會嚇一跳。

早被嚇過了 她的歌聲那麼無暇,時代潮流一再地沖刷,

只會把她的歌聲修飾得更圓潤,如鵝卵石,晶瑩剔透。

In this age and time when youth seems to be everything in the Mandarin Music world,

the release of Winnie's new album is especially significant -

there are still people who knows how to appreciate really good music.

 

Winnie's new album [I can also fall in love with another] is not another cheap sale of

old hits compilation album.  In this album of 3 CDs, one can find 6 new numbers,

the Mandarin cover of the song [Promise me] and

duet singles with artistes both from Taiwan and overseas.

This is a well-thought album which features

Winnie's hits from almost every stage of her singing career.

 

There are 3 new numbers each in CD 1 and 2 of the album.

Afterall, some things in life just gets better with time;

Winnie's new jazz number and another new song which perfectly combines both chinese

classical and western elements are simply fabulous. The contemporary music arrangement

coupled with the challenging vocal, Winnie has indeed shown real substance in music

to the younger ones who only know how to rap.

 

There are two new compositions by seasoned ballad writer 潘協慶.

One is rather melancholic (guitar-based) and

another is  more fired with passion (piano-based). 

Whichever, the way Winnie handled these songs with such delicateness is simply awesome.

The new song [Most difficult dream] is accordion-based, this song is not as suitable to be

selected as a hit number, rather it can be a well-kept treasure in the bottom of the heart.

In the past, Winnie spoke up for abandoned women and

expressed the heart-wrenching feelings of mistresses through her songs.

From the title of the song [I can also fall in love with another],

initially it is thought that this song is meant for the flirtatious,

but it turned out that the meaning behind the lyrics  goes this way -

Wish you all the best in your new relationship, don't worry, I can also call in love with another.

If you feel that Winnie's former hits are very drama,

then, this song [I can also fall in love with another] will keep her on the throne of Drama Queen.

The song is especially easy to follow and pick up, very suitable for those who just want to

release their feelings through singing.

 

In the third CD of the album, one can find all the duets Winnie has ever sang,

including two duets with the late Leslie Cheung, one of which is a cantonese cover 

Perhaps many have forgotten that Winnie has ever sung cantonese songs too.

Besides this, there is also an English duet [The Prayer] which she partnered Johnny King,

an established Taiwanese singer who focuses more on English songs.

 

And so, it appears that the only thing Winnie has not exactly tried is a dance song.

Who knows?  Perhaps one day, she will just do that and I will not be surprised, for,

Winnie has already shocked me with her perfect vocal, so smooth, so crystal clear  -

one that only gets better with time.

 

 

 

馬來西亞姐妹雙週刊評    

 

擇文:淑儀

 

辛曉琪“我也會愛上別人的”

推薦曲:好歌不斷

評分:A

 

聽她的嗓音,就已值回票價,我已經無法雞蛋裡挑骨頭了,畢竟療傷歌后的美譽,不是浪得虛名的。

 

這張收錄30首新歌和經典名曲的專輯,絕對值得收藏,除了詳細記錄歌者18年來的名曲之外,也同時感受到她開始做新嘗試的決心。

 

苦情到了極限,就會被框死,聽到歌者在“我就要”的恣意奔放,海泉譜曲的“你走之前”,完全跳出了歌者一向予人幽怨風格的框框,倒是讓人驚喜萬分。

 

其他經典好歌包括了成名曲“領悟”、“味道”、“深情相擁”、“在你背影守候”、“承認”等,是張不容錯過的心水專輯。

 

Winnie's vocal alone makes it worthwhile to listen this album.  Besides being a complete compilation of Winnie's best hits over the years, from the new songs in this album, one can feel Winnie's determination to different, to try something new.

 

After being known as sorrowful for such a long time, keeping a This album  the late Leslie Ch
