华南师范大学外文学院英语系04级学生。喜欢英文,喜欢听英文歌曲,一首好的英文歌曲不仅让我学到课文里学不到的知识,更让我体味到歌者的人生。令我陶醉的不仅仅是动人的旋律,找到每首歌的触动点,理解每首歌背后的故事才是我最大的享受。除了听歌还喜欢看看书,听歌让我觉得享受,看书让我觉得充实。

 

 歌手简介他是四届格莱美奖得主,是R&B音乐教父级人物;他拥有超过两千万张的唱片销售记录,被他魔力嗓音征服的听众数以亿计;他就是Luther Vandross,美国最伟大的黑人男歌手之一。

 我听之我见 随着前奏缓缓响起,一些很原始的情感也会开始慢慢地涌动。返璞归真的歌词极尽平凡,轻盈弥漫的节奏带走所有沉重。一时之间,脑海只剩下那把完美的男声在轻声吟唱。淡淡的感动在涌动,却是来自内心最深处的。

Dance with my father     by Luther Vandross

Back when I was a child
他是四届格莱美奖得主,是R&B音乐教父级人物;他拥有超过两千万张的唱片销售记录,被他魔力嗓音所征服的听众数以亿计;他就是Luther Vandross,在2004年的格莱美奖上以一曲“Dance With My Father”感动无数乐迷。Before life removed all the innocence
My father would lift me high
And dance with my mother me then
Spin me around till I fell asleep
Then up the stairs he would carry me

And I knew for sure I was loved
If I could get another chance
Another walk
Another dance with him.
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
How I love, love, love
To dance with my father again

When I and my mother would disagree
To get my way I would run from her to him
He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
Then finally make me do just what my mama said
Later that night when I was asleep
He left a dollar under my sheet

Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
If I could steal one final glance
他是四届格莱美奖得主,是R&B音乐教父级人物;他拥有超过两千万张的唱片销售记录,被他魔力嗓音所征服的听众数以亿计;他就是Luther Vandross,在2004年的格莱美奖上以一曲“Dance With My Father”感动无数乐迷。One final step
One final dance with him
I'd play a song that would never, ever end
Cause I love, love, love
To dance with my father again

Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
I pray for her even more than me
I pray for her even more than me

I know I'm praying so much too much
But could you send back the only man she loved
I know u don't do it usually
But dear lord she's dying
To dance with my father again

Every night I fall asleep this is all I ever dream
