Forever Young by Laura Branigan

 

剛剛突然想起 Laura Branigan 這個名字
就隨意在 Google 敲下
Shocked 的是, Laura 早已經在2004年8月在睡夢中往生

官網的 Passing 連結寫上:

It was confirmed to OneStor earlier today from Joan Di Tursi Laura’s previous manager that Laura had passed away in her sleep last night Thursday August 26th 2004 of a Brain aneurysm.

不能算很早就接觸她的歌
但一直很喜歡她在1985年
翻唱自Alphaville 1984年推出的成名曲 Forever Young

這也是除了ABC字母歌之外, 第一首可以完整唱完的英文歌
至少給我的感覺, 不像原唱那樣冷冰冰
雖然曾經一度以為 Laura 才是原唱..
陸續也發現她唱的歌, 不管是 Self Control
還是 How Am I Supposed To Live Without You
略帶沙啞的嗓音, 帶出的感情相對濃郁

anyway, 安息吧, 曾經那樣動人的 Laura

Let’s dance in style let’s dance for a while
Heaven can wait we’re only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don’t have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit life is a short trip
The music’s for the sad men
Can you imagine when the space is one
As we turn our faces into the sun
Praising our leaders we’re getting in tune
The music’s played by the mad men

Forever young
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever and ever

Forever young
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, forever young

Some are like water some are like the heat
Some are the melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
Why don’t they stay young?
It’s so hard to get old without a cause
I don’t want to perish like a fading horse
Youth’s like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever
So many adventures couldn’t happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams waiting out of the blue
We’ll let them come true

Forever young
I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever and ever
