辛曉琪音樂生命中的7個男人
 

 

作者/Hasayake

沉寂了一段時間,辛曉琪終於帶著她的新歌+精選專輯《我也會愛上別人的》和剛剛醫治好的受傷心靈,重新回到歌迷們的面前。她認為新女性就應該勇敢放下心靈包袱,重新開始,做自己的女皇。
 


【我也會愛上別人的】


這張《我也會愛上別人的》一共收錄了6首新歌和24首經典戀曲,其中幾首新歌滲透了辛曉琪這段時間以來的感情經歷,她唱起來也是非常有感觸。

 
其中由陳小霞作曲、姚若龍填詞的《最難的夢》這首歌是6首新歌堶掖怞亳T定的,也是最令辛曉琪難過的一首歌。在一年多以前,辛曉琪失戀後的心情還沒有平復,聽到demo的時候就哭到不行,然後每天必哭。她說:“demo是陳小霞自己彈著吉他唱的,她的聲音特別滄桑,是說一個人到義大利北邊去旅行。我試過一個人旅行,我覺得當你最孤獨的時候,你最能誠實面對自己。歌堶掩○斻曭犒痟N是把你的心留下,我覺得心酸到了骨子堙C後來配唱的時候我反而不是那麼難過,反而比較豁達。”


另一首讓辛曉琪流淚的是《我也會愛上別人的》。那天,辛曉琪在機場,第一次看到姚謙的歌詞,當場就掉了淚。她深有感觸地說:“我的體會很深刻,有過這種感情經歷的人都會瞭解。我更喜歡副歌,同樣是情歌,有些女孩還會把感情看得很重,會被感情牽著鼻子走,會比較脆弱,現在的新女性要自主性強一點,當自己的女皇。如果覺得走不下去了,自己也會做一個抉擇,放掉感情,把自己重新整理好,對自己說:我也會愛上別人。”

 


【現在的感情一片空白】


有人說辛曉琪和王菲一樣,有姐弟戀傾向,對此,她表示,自己的確是不排斥年紀比自己小的男朋友,之前也是因為緣分碰到了,也從來沒有想到自己會交一個那麼小的男朋友,現在亦沒有想過是不是再交一個比自己小的男朋友。她覺得只要是有緣,他對自己好,很多問題是可以解決的。

 


【張國榮屬於魅力人物】
 

早就在很多場合聽到辛曉琪對張國榮讚不絕口,這次提起“哥哥”(張國榮的愛稱),也毫不例外。同時,她雙眼散發出不一樣的光芒,之前因為受到一些小事情影響而不快的情緒也完全沒有了。她說:“跟張國榮合唱了兩首歌《深情相擁》和《眉來眼去》,後來擔任了他在香港“跨越97”演唱會的嘉賓,之後一直都保持聯繫。雖然他是一個巨星,可是他完全沒有讓你覺得有那種大牌壓你的感覺,反而是讓你覺得很舒服。他從來不會給你壓力,他是一個很平易近人的大哥哥。在唱《眉來眼去》的時候,因為是粵語歌詞,他非常有耐心,一字一句地糾正我,發音給我聽。”

 
哥哥在演唱會上還送了一個戒指給辛曉琪,並親手幫她戴上。辛曉琪到香港的時候,哥哥也總是會盡地主之誼,開車帶她去吃飯。辛曉琪有時候望著哥哥,也會不免惆悵起來 - - 要是有這樣一個男朋友該多好。至今,她回憶起哥哥的往事,心間依然縈繞著溫暖:“我覺得他是相當有魅力,而且相當體貼的人。跟他合作的時候感覺非常賞心悅目,因為你跟他對唱的時候,看他的相貌很俊俏,聽到的聲音又很好聽……他完完全全是屬於魅力型的人物!”

 


【口水噴了郭子一臉】
 

專輯中第3張CD收錄了8首對唱歌曲,將辛曉琪同男歌手的合作一網打盡,除了張國榮以外,她還分別和李宗盛、周華健等6位男歌手擦出火花。她認為,周華健、李宗盛和郭子都是很能搞笑的人物。尤其是郭子,因為兩個人太熟悉了,在錄音室不用說什麼也能笑成一團,笑得流淚,最後倒在地上,搞得錄音也不能繼續下去。錄完音之後有一天碰到郭子,他還打趣辛曉琪:“你知道嗎?你在錄音室堶惜f水噴得我滿臉都是!”


合唱《The Prayer》的金祖齡是臺灣最早唱西洋歌曲的,辛曉琪叫他“金爺爺”,她說,連外國人聽他唱的英文歌都是聽不出口音,都以為是老外唱的。


合唱《火花》的柳列是韓國歌手,辛曉琪對他的評介是:“聲音實在太棒了,太好聽了。”

After not having heard from Winnie for a while, she finally arrived with her latest album and a fully-recovered self to meet her fans again.  "A new-age woman ought to be brave enough to put down any emotional burden and start anew, take charge of her own life, be her own queen," Winnie shares.

Winnie’s latest album comprises of 6 new numbers and 24 best hits.  Amongst the new songs, several of them permeate through her personal experience these while and so, she can relate to them well.

One of these songs is called “The Most Difficult dream”.  This song was the first new song to be confirmed for the album.  That was more than a year ago.  At that time, Winnie had not yet fully recovered from her previous relationship.  Whenever she heard the demo, she couldn’t help but break down in tears.  The demo was sung by the composer who has a vocal that can make one really feel extremely heartrending.  The lyrics describe one who traveled all by herself to the northern part of Italy.  Winnie had ever traveled alone and she understood how it felt.  When you leave a familiar environment, your family and friends and go traveling alone, you then really have the chance to be your true self and face your inner most feelings truthfully.

The lyrics also says “the most difficult dream is to keep your heart by me.”  When she heard this, it simply wrenches her heart.  Subsequently, when Winnie was recording this song in the studio, she did not feel so sad anymore, as by then she had walked out completely from the past. 

One day, while Winnie was in transit in the Hong Kong Airport and was checking her email, she received the lyrics for the new song “I will also fall in love with another”.  The moment she read the lyrics, tears formed.  “The lyrics so aptly described how I felt and I am sure anybody who had gone through that kind of experiences can identify with the lyrics.  Actually, I like the chorus even better.  Typically, to some girls, emotions/ sentiments/ feelings play a very big part of their lives to the extent that they tend to be led by their emotions and gets easily affected by them.  Winnie feels that a new-age woman ought to be more independent, ought to take charge or her own life and not be easily swayed by sentiments.

If it is really not possible to carry on in a relationship, then she ought to decide for herself, let go, re-collect herself and tell herself, “I can also fall in love with another”.

Some people say that both Winnie and Faye Wong have a tendency to fall for younger guys.  With regard to this, Winnie expressed that she indeed is able to accept a younger boyfriend.  Before this, although it has never occurred to her that she would go out with someone so much younger, her lot brought her and her younger ex together.  Now, she isn’t very concerned whether she will go out with another younger chap or an older one.  If it is her lot and if he treats her well, many problems can be resolved.

Even before today, I have heard the high praises Winnie had of Leslie Cheung, who is also affectionately known as “Elder Brother”.  As Winnie talks about this beloved brother of hers, her eyes glow with a certain radiance.  “We worked on two duets together and he invited me to be one of the star guests for his concerts in 1997.  We kept in touch since then.  Although he is a super star, he had absolutely no airs about himself and he does not make you feel pressurized when you are with him.  He is very nice and easy-going, just like your own brother.  When we were singing the Cantonese duet, he even patiently taught me and guided me of the pronunciation of each word of the lyrics.  In one of his concerts, he even presented me with a diamond ring and put on the ring for me in front of all the audience in the coliseum.  Whenever I went to Hong Kong, he would also bring me around.  Sometimes, when she looked at him, how she wished that she has a boyfriend like him.  Even up till today, whenever she thinks about him, her heart is filled with so much warmth.  He is really a very charismatic person and a very thoughtful person.  Very good-looking, very nice voice, it was really a great pleasure working with him."  

Besides Leslie, Winnie had also worked with 5 other male singers on other duets, such as Emil Chau and Jonathan Lee.  And all of these duets can be found in this latest album of hers.  In her opinion, she found that Emil, Jonathan and Guo Zi are real jokers and can always make people laugh, especially Guo Zi who she knows very well.  Because they are so familiar with each other, they have so much chemistry between them.  In the studio, when they were recording the duet, they didn’t speak a single word and they knew the joke on each other's mind.  In the end both of them laughed till they were rolling on the ground and couldn’t continue recording. One day, when they met again, he even teased her saliva splashed all over his face as they were singing the duet together in the studio.

 Johnny King , whom Winnie sang the duet “The Prayer” with, is one of the earliest Western pop singer in Taiwan.  Winnie affectionately calls him “Grandpa King”.  Even foreigners couldn’t tell from his singing that he is not a native, no accent at all.

Winnie also thinks that Yoo Yeol, the Korean vocalist whom she sang the Korean duet “Fireworks” simply has a beautiful and fantastic vocal!
