Casablanca

這首歌的歌名是引用著名電影”北非諜影”的英文片名Casablanca,
同時,這也是位於北非的一個地名。

電影我沒看過,畢竟年代久遠(1942年左右的黑白片),想找也得費一番功夫。
不過這首歌很吸引我的地方在於它富含韻味的歌詞與 Bertie Higgins 獨特的嗓音,
有時候聽起來像是身處於昏暗的黃色燈光下,往事的回憶像走馬燈般地一一在腦海浮現。
或許可以體會曲中主角的心境,但是他的心境卻和自己心境有一段難以捉摩的距離,也造就了一種疏離感。

此外,聽到這首歌,居然會讓我聯想起村上春樹小說世界末日與冷酷異境的情境,
也許是因為作者在這本小說中頻頻提到北非諜影這部片,
才會有這種美麗的錯誤聯想。

P.S. 歌詞中的解釋
(1) drive-in show(露天汽車電影)盛行於二次世界大戰後的美國,片商會在偏僻的大空地上架一個大螢幕,撥放過時的電影,讓開車前來的觀眾坐在停駛的汽車上觀賞。比較特別的是,影片的聲音不是在廣場上直接撥放,而是透過無線電從觀眾的收音機來撥放。
(2) Chevrolet(雪佛蘭汽車),美國通用汽車公司推出的一個歷史悠久的車款。

P.S. 2
片子後來在光華商場買到了,正版DVD片99元,
看過後,以老片的水準來說,其實還真是一部精彩的電影啊!

Casablanca
Bertie Higgins (1981)

I fell in love with you watching Casablanca
Back row of the drive in show in the flickering light
Popcorn and cokes beneath the stars became champagne and caviar
Making love on a long hot summers night

I thought you fell in love with me watching Casablance
Holding hands ‘neath the paddle fans in Rick’s Candle lit cafe
Hiding in the shadows from the spies. Moroccan moonlight in your eyes
Making magic at the movies in my old chevrolet

Oh! A kiss is still a kiss in Casablanca
But a kiss is not a kiss without your sigh
Please come back to me in Casablanca
I love you more and more each day as time goes by

I guess there’re many broken hearts in Casablanca
You know I’ve never really been there. so, I don’t know
I guess our love story will never be seen on the big wide silver screen
But it hurt just as bad when I had to watch you go

Oh! A kiss is still a kiss in Casablanca
But a kiss is not a kiss without your sigh
Please come back to me in Casablanca
I love you more and more each day as time goes by
Oh! A kiss is still a kiss in Casablanca
But a kiss is not a kiss without your sigh

Please come back to me in Casablanca
I love you more and more each day as time goes by
I love you more and more each day as time goes by

  • 聽這首歌的時候,
    總是會莫名奇妙地想起"世界末日與冷酷異境"的情節,
    但是好像沒啥關係吧!? 我覺得~

    難道是因為中了村上毒太深了嗎?? XD

  • 北非諜影並不難找

    只是數量滿少的

    盡量往規模比較小的租片店找會比較有收穫


  • 多謝樓上提醒^^~

    我兩週前已經在光華商場地下舊書攤那邊找到了,
    買到的是DVD版的,最近還一直沒有時間看,
    改天看了再來寫心得吧! ^^
