-「溫柔的巨人」

這位歌手叫做伊瑟瑞·卡瑪卡威烏歐爾(israel kamakawiwo'ole) (IZ),土生土長的夏威夷人,夏威夷音樂家。

從很年輕就顯露出音樂的天份,日後成立樂團,專輯也非常成功,

成了夏威夷第一位獲得白金唱片認證的音樂人。

然而1997年,因體重過重引起的健康問題,不幸過世,那年,他只有38歲.... 。

不過所留下來的音樂,至今仍被用於許多電影、電視節目、影集和廣告的配樂。


偶然在新年的第一天,看著紐約時代廣場 (Time square) 的跨年轉播,再度傳來這熟悉的音樂與歌聲。

雖然<Over the rainbow> 以及 <What a wonderful world>這兩首曲子早已大名鼎鼎,很多著名的歌手都分別傳唱過,

然而,IZ把這兩首歌結合後,卻有著這令我更喜歡的詮釋方式。

是這動人的旋律、輕快的烏克麗麗、以及再吸引人不過的嗓音,

當倒數後廣場撒下滿天的繽紛,人們彼此歡欣慶祝、相互擁抱,隨著音樂搖擺著...

那一刻,好感動。 What a wonderful world!!



<Lyrics>

Somewhere over the rainbow

Way up high

And the dreams that you dreamed of

Once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow

Blue birds fly

And the dreams that you dreamed of

Dreams really do come true ooh ooooh

Someday I'll wish upon a star

Wake up where the clouds are far behind me

Where trouble melts like lemon drops

High above the chimney tops that's where you'll find me

Oh somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly

And the dream that you dare to, oh why, oh why can't I?

Well I see trees of green and red roses too

I'll watch them bloom for me and you

And I think to myself

What a wonderful world

Well I see skies of blue and I see clouds of white

And the brightness of day, I like the dark and I think to myself

What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky

Are also on the faces of people passing by

I see friends shaking hands

Saying, "How do you do?"

They're really saying, "I...I love you"

I hear babies cry and I watch them grow

They'll learn much more

Than we'll know

And I think to myself

What a wonderful world, world
