麥可傑克遜《外星人》童稚心

他父親十六歲結婚,共生了六男三女,他在家中排行老五,由於年紀最小、歌聲清亮,當父母計劃將五個兒子組成合唱團時,他毫不費力便獲選主唱。剛開始他們在夜總會登台時,每晚的演出酬勞只有八美元(約兩百六十四元台幣),但由於表現精彩,一晚的小費常超過一百美元(約三千三百元台幣),這也讓麥可父母更加堅定將他們推向演藝圈的決定。
 
但麥可畢竟才五歲,他渴望友朋,渴望與常人一般的家庭生活,不願下課後只能與兄長練樂器、表演,但他一鬧脾氣,換來只是父親惡狠狠的毒打,因此他極度的不快樂,只能想像自己是童話世界的彼德潘,可以逃開這一切,投入自己的烏托邦。
 
因此當他觀賞大導演史蒂芬史匹柏(Steven Spielberg)執導的《E.T.外星人》時,完全失去控制地愛上了這部與外星人交友的電影,甚至片中那位被稱做「怪胎」的艾略特,喜歡幻想、沒有朋友,他幻想自己就是他的化身,遇見了E.T.,跟他交上朋友,滿足童年時未曾享有的友誼。
 
也因為麥可瘋狂地愛上《E.T.外星人》,他不僅透過關係向史匹柏要得了一隻ET道具,還讓製作人昆西瓊斯(Quincy Jones)決定利用電影中的音效與對白,製作此片的有聲故事書,並由麥可主講。麥可一向多唱少說,這次卻當仁不讓當起主講人,他生動地闡述整個故事,令聽者相信他是完全地為這故事著迷,並獻唱了一首《黑暗中的人》(Someone in the Dark)。歌詞中寫著:「獨自對著星星許願,等待你來找尋我,在一個甜蜜夜晚裡,我知道我將會看見,一個即將成為我朋友的陌生人。當某個在黑暗中對你伸出手的人,點亮起瞬間火花,它告訴你永遠不要害怕,在你心底某個角落,你可以清楚感受到,一盞在夜涼中溫暖你的明燈,就像寫在星星上,我的朋友,那個人就是你。」彷若寫盡他從小期待卻不被了解的孤寂。
 
由於他的精彩表演,此張專輯為他贏得了葛萊美獎最佳兒童專輯,是他得獎紀錄中最特別的一次。可惜這張專輯當年在台未曾發行,在美國也早已絕版了,去年在首爾意外找到韓文版專輯,本以為仍會保有他演唱的台詞及他演唱的歌曲,沒想到全數換上韓文演說、演唱版本,相當可惜,現在他不幸告別人世,這張專輯只怕更為珍貴了。
 
《Someone In The Dark》
All alone wishing on stars
Waiting for you to find me
One sweet night I knew I would see
A stranger who'd be my friend

When someone in the dark reaches out to you
And touches off a spark that comes shining through
It tells you never be afraid
Then somewhere in your heart you can feel the glow
A light to keep you warm when the night winds blow
Like it was written in the stars I knew
My friend, my someone in the dark was you

Promise me we'll always be
Walking the world together
Hand in hand where dreams never end
My star secret friend and me

When someone in the dark reaches out to you
And touches off a spark that comes shining through
It tells you never be afraid
Then somewhere in your heart you can feel the glow
A light to keep you warm when the night winds blow
Look for the rainbow in the sky
I believe you and I
Could never really say goodbye
Wherever you may be
I'll look up and see
Someone in the dark for me
Wherever you may be
I'll look up and see
Someone in the dark for me

Though you're gone star far away
Each time I see a rainbow
I'll remember being with you
Smiles coming through my tears

When someone in the dark reaches out for you
And touches off a spark that comes shining through
It tells you never be afraid
Then somewhere in your heart you can feel the glow
A light to keep you warm when the night winds blow
Look for the rainbow in the sky
I believe you and I
Could never really say goodbye
Wherever you may be
I'll look up and see
Someone in the dark for me
Wherever you may be
I'll look up and see
Someone in the dark for me!
