【電影世界無所不在的聖誕快樂!《歌喉讚2》中的聖誕歌曲】

滔客/ 2016.12.23 00:00
(圖片來源 : IMDb)《歌喉讚》(Pitch Perfect)1、2兩集的票房亮眼,是少數小成品卻大回收的好萊塢電影,也捧紅了戲中的演員,最厲害的是帶動了片中所有歌曲的點播率,不得不說此片讓阿卡貝拉這種歌唱型式得到最商業式的推廣效果,也間接讓人們接觸了新一代的流行音樂走向。

在《歌喉讚2》中由安娜坎卓克Theresa Anna Kendrick飾演的女主角貝卡在唱片公司中為了向製作聖誕專輯的老闆毛遂自薦,表演了一段巧妙的歌曲重唱,讓唱片公司老闆耳目一新。片中這個公司是請來Snoopy Dogg 以嘻哈風演唱了傳統聖誕歌曲〈Winter Wonderland〉,貝卡則搭配了〈Here comes Santa Claus〉。

以下是電影片段~

是不是很特別呢?

其實學過音樂的都知道,這只不是一種很簡單的音樂手法,譬如只要節拍符合,調性符合,旋律是以CGAEF (此處為舉例) 進行,則任何符合以上原則的歌曲都可以輕易融合在一起,不會有違和感,這也是阿卡貝拉的元素之一。難怪片中的製作人老闆對此稱讚貝卡時,貝卡說:「這沒什麼,因為我是唱阿卡貝拉的。」由Snoopy Dogg所唱的是傳統歌曲〈Winter Wonderland〉,原來並不是針對聖誕節而作,但流傳久遠後,它就變成聖誕傳統歌曲排行的固定嘉賓了。以下是一個傳統版本,就是在聖誕節前各賣場都會播放的歌曲~

原詞如下:

Sleigh bells ring

are you listening

in the lane

snow is glistening

A beautiful sight

we're happy tonight

walking in a winter wonderlandGone away is the bluebird

here to stay is a new bird

He sings a love song

as we go along

walking in a winter wonderlandIn the meadow we can build a snowman

Then pretend that he is Parson Brown

He'll say: Are you marriedwe'll say: No man

But you can do the job

when you're in townLater on

we'll conspire

as we dream by the fire

To face unafraid

the plans that we've made

walking in a winter wonderlandIn the meadow we can build a snowman

and pretend that he's a circus clown

We'll have lots of fun with mister snowman

until the the other kids knock him downWhen it snows

ain't it thrilling

Though your nose gets a chilling

We'll frolic and play

the Eskimo way

walking in a winter wonderlandwalking in a winter wonderland

walking in a winter wonderland而由貝卡所唱的〈Here comes Santa Claus〉,是由貓王Elvis所原唱呢!

原詞如下:

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus

Right down Santa Claus LaneVixen, Blitzen, all his reindeer

Pulling on the reins

Bells are ringing, children singing

All is merry and bright

Hang your stockings and say a prayer

'Cause Santa Claus comes tonightHere comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus

Riding down Santa Claus LaneHe's got a bag that's filled with toys

For boys and girls again

Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle

What a beautiful sight

Jump in bed and cover up your head

Because Santa Claus comes tonightHere comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus

Riding down Santa Claus LaneHe doesn't care if you're a rich or poor boy

He loves you just the same

Santa knows that we're God's children

That makes everything right

Fill your hears with Christmas cheer

'Cause Santa Claus comes tonightWell, here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus

Riding down Santa Claus LaneHe'll come around when the chimes ring out

It's Christmas morn again

Peace on Earth will come to all

If we just follow the light

Let's give thanks to the Lord above

'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight

'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight以上兩首如此應景的歌曲是不是很有氣氛呢?〈Winter wonderland〉是溫厚傳統的聖誕歌曲,創作於1934年,由作曲家Felix Bernard及作詞家Richard B. Smith所作,中文名稱亦稱〈冬日仙境〉;而貓王Elvis的〈Here comes Santa Claus〉,則帶有歡欣的搖滾味道。喜歡阿卡貝拉的朋友不妨利用假期,將妳所喜歡的聖誕歌曲或合併或和音,加入beat-box,創造屬於你自己的Pitch Perfect!《歌喉讚2》原聲帶中獻聲演唱〈Any way you want it〉的阿卡貝拉團體『五聲音階Pentatonix』曾經出過一張聖誕專輯,文末便用他們的〈Little Drummer Boy〉祝福大家冬日愉快!
