In My Life

Beatles 擁護者應該會識 George Martin;他是 Beatles 多年來唱片製作人,人稱第五位 Beatles。數年前他集合歌藝界名人,重新製作一張全 Beatles 歌曲的唱片叫做 In My Life。這是其中我喜愛的幾首,放在Radio Blog請你聽聽。

in my life

Come Together 由 Robin Williams 和 Bobby McFerrin 唱出。McFerrin 是著名人肉樂器,他的聲音有四個八度的音域。請聽開端的低音樂器,就係佢把聲。

A Hard Day’s Night 由 Goldie Hawn 主唱;就係做戲個位喜劇大眼女演員。把聲唔錯,同 Beatles 所唱的味道完全不同。

Here, There and Everywhere 由 Celine Dion 主唱。歌后唱功唔駛介紹。

A Day in the Life 是電結他音樂,由大師 Jeff Beck 表演,結他聲柔到好似人聲。

Here Comes the Sun 又是結他音樂,由古典結他宗師 John Williams 演出;結他和管弦樂效果一流。

主題曲 In My Life 用鋼琴奏出旋律,由 Sean Connery 朗誦;他就是那位老牌占士邦。歌詞如下:

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain

All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
there is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

El Jem

整理突尼西亞的相片時,還有少量錄影片段可用。我將它們整合為影片,放在Youtube。這是在突尼西亞伊利捷El Jem拍攝的畫面。El Jem在突尼西亞中部,主要遺跡是一個羅馬鬥獸場。這個設施規模很大,又因位置適中,相傳當時整個非洲北部的人民都會到此觀看這項殘忍的運動。遺跡保存得很完整,看台大部份仍未倒塌,鬥獸場地可用,而地下囚禁猛獸和奴隸的囚室仍可以參觀。有興趣請到此看看影片
