曾慶瑜翻唱馬帝貝林的《心》

曾慶瑜繼《看夠柔情》、《款款柔情》兩張英文專輯大獲成功後,1991年再度推出第3張英文專輯,搭配她一貫的異國風格曲調,這次她選唱的主打歌《心》,出自馬帝貝林1981年的作品,曾經拿下美國告示牌第8名,但往後記得這首歌的人倒不多,要不是曾慶瑜翻唱,就可能錯過了這首好歌。
 
馬帝貝林出身自60年代頗有名氣的迷幻搖滾樂團「傑佛遜飛船」,跨入70年代後,該團又改名為「傑佛遜星船」(Jefferson Starship),並發行了一張全美冠軍專輯《Red Octopus》,聲勢達到顛峰,但就跟多數搖滾樂團一樣,團員意見紛歧,後來馬帝貝林決定單飛發展,於1981年推出個人專輯《貝林》(Balin),首度出擊便以單曲《心》拿下第8名,成績不錯,可惜後繼無力,在他之後推出的單曲或專輯,都未能超越。附帶一提的,「傑佛遜星船」在他離去後,又經過重組,再度改名為「星船」(Starship),反而創造了該團史上最佳成績,最知名作品則為電影《神氣活現》演唱的《Nothing Gonna Stop Us Now》。
 
儘管曾慶瑜演唱《心》令人驚豔,但印象中市場反應還好,沒有像上張的《長夜漫漫》(Lonely As the Night Is Long)大受歡迎,唱片公司趕緊推出第二主打,重金禮聘到美國歌手麥可波頓(Michael Bolton)為她量身寫出動感之作《陰謀者》(Conspiracy),替她開創新的演唱方向。我覺得這首也是她至今表現最佳的歌曲,她展現從未有過的律動聲音表情,聽來有幾分當時美國歌手凱倫懷特(Karen White)的感覺。
 
由於麥可波頓當時在台頗受歡迎,記得那時報章也報導這難得的合作,但那時她與節目製作人俞凱爾的戀情,反倒更受人矚目,加上曾慶瑜同時也主持綜藝節目《玫瑰之夜》,逐漸模糊了歌手身分,她的歌唱生涯反倒聲勢下滑。她後來加入「音樂田」(滾石子公司),出了第4張也是最後一張英文專輯《夏日情蹤》(Days of Summer),是我覺得最精采也最精緻的英文專輯,卻很可惜受到市場忽略,成績完全比不上前三張。
 
《Hearts》
Is everything alright
I just called to say how lost I feel without you
Miles away I really can't believe I'm near
And how I still care about you

Hearts can break
And never meant together
Love can fade away
Hearts could cry
When love won't stay forever
Hearts can be that way

Is everything the same
Do you ever think of me
And how we loved one another
Will you change your mind
We won't be back again
Or have you found yourself a new lover

Is everything ok
I just thought I'll write a song
To tell the world how I miss you
'cause each and every day
I think of all the words I never said
And all the chances that I had to
ry
When love won't stay forever
Hearts can be that way

Is everything the same
Do you ever think of me
And how we loved one another
Will you change your mind
We won't be back again
Or have you found yourself a new lover

Is everything ok
I just thought I'll write a song
To tell the world how I miss you
'cause each and every day
I think of all the words I never said
And all the chances that I had to
can fade away
Hearts could cry
When love won't stay forever
Hearts can be that way

Is everything the same
Do you ever think of me
And how we loved one another
Will you change your mind
We won't be back again
Or have you found yourself a new lover

Is everything ok
I just thought I'll write a song
To tell the world how I miss you
'cause each and every day
I think of all the words I never said
And all the chances that I had to
