Auld Lang Syne with Chinese from Raymond Lee (65)

Auld Lang Syne
1st verse
Should old acquaintance be forgot/ And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot/ And auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear/ For auld lang syne
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet/ For auld lang syne,

2nd verse
(李榮輝 WYK1965)
求永遠記得  你共我  今晚同渡這刻,
今晚把酒慶祝  與並肩好友 舊調重唱,
請你珍惜健康  來日生趣  淡淡細賞,
相見亦是緣份  盼可跟你  日後重見。

花樣年華 Florescent Age

作詞:范煙橋 Lyrics: Fan Yanqiao
作曲:林枚 Music: Lin Mei

周旋唱 Sung by Zhou Xuan

花樣的年華,月樣的精神,冰雪樣的聰明。
In my florescent age, luminal spirit, crystallinus wisdom
美麗的生活,多情的眷屬,圓滿的家庭。
La vie en rose, passionate relations, rises a perfect home.

驀地裡這孤島籠罩著慘霧愁雲,慘霧愁雲。
Suddenly—this lone isle is shrouded with tragic mists and forlorn clouds, tragic mists and forlorn clouds.
啊!可愛的祖國幾時我能夠投進你的懷抱,
Ah! When can I return to you, my beloved motherland
能見那霧消雲散,重見你放出光明。
To see the mists and clouds dissipate, to see your brilliance again?

花樣的年華,月樣的精神。
Florescent age, luminal spirit.

《百首中文金曲榜》 __岑建成(71)編

歲月流聲 – 我們喜愛的100 首中文歌曲。

71屆同學葉柏年(Fred Yip) 去年以其極敏鋭的音樂觸覺及其對流行音樂的熱忱,寫了 “Music to My Ears – A Mosaic of 100 Songs” 一文,開宗明義地引莎翁名言,說明欠缺音樂的人生是乏味的,靈魂會像黑夜般昏沉、心胸會像地獄般幽暗。跟著細訴他如何在耳濡目染下與流行音樂結下不解之緣,並完全投向妙曼樂韻的懷抱裏。之後他更精挑細選出他至愛的百首英文歌曲與同好分享。百首金曲推出後,反應熱烈。部份71 屆同學們意猶未盡,經集思廣益後,亦炮製了百首中文金曲( 以下簡稱「百大」)應和。百首中文金曲榜,涵蓋了40至千禧年代不同時期不同類型的歌曲,以一人一首的規格,收錄了歌者們的代表作。

《Music to My Ears – A Mosaic of 100 Songs》 __ Fred Yip (71)

The man that hath no music in himself
Nor is moved with concord of sweet sounds
Is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils
The motions of his spirit are dull as night
And his affections dark as Erebus
Let no such man be trusted
Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice, Act V, Scene I

2016 Mother’s Day_ “Let it Be”

Paul_McMartneyMcCartney said he had the idea of “Let It Be” after he had a dream about his mother…. According to McCartney, the song’s reference to “Mother Mary” was not a biblical reference. The phrase has at times been used as a reference to the Virgin Mary,… in fact, the words “let it be” are a direct quote from the Prayer of the Annunciation… Nevertheless, McCartney explained that his mother – who died of cancer when he was fourteen – was the inspiration for the “Mother Mary” lyric.  He later said: “It was great to visit with her again. I felt very blessed to have that dream. So that got me writing ‘Let It Be’.”  He also said in a later interview about the dream that his mother had told him, “It will be all right, just let it be.” When asked if the song referred to the Virgin Mary, McCartney has typically answered the question by assuring his fans that they can interpret the song however they would like. [Let It Be]
