遗憾的歌 - You Don't Know Me

       在文学,艺术,音乐方面的许多伟大创作都和爱情有关,并且以悲剧收场者居多,除了贝辽兹的《幻想交响曲》,音乐史上单单以莎士比亚的《罗密欧与朱丽叶》为基础的著名音乐创作就有好几部。爱情方面的不幸或遗憾仿佛可以激发艺术家的创造力?感人肺腑令人刻骨铭心的爱情故事都必须如此?这就是爱情的宿命?
       “恨不相逢未嫁时”诚然是一种遗憾,只是有情人终成眷属了会不会哪一天又“情到浓时情转薄”?谁又知道? 同时,你又可以想象罗密欧与朱丽叶的爱情故事以喜剧收场以及之后柴米油盐儿女围绕的幸福生活?
       人世间的一见钟情往往令人销魂甚至永世难忘,前提是必须有所遗憾?这首由Cindy Walker作曲Eddy Arnold 作词,Patti Page 演唱的1950年代歌曲 You Don't Know Me里的情境确是真实得令人动容:

You give your hand to me
And then you say hello
And I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well
But you don't know me (no you don't know me)

No you don't know the one
Who dreams of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips
Longs to hold you tight
Oh I am just a friend
That's all I've ever been
Cause you don't know me (no you don't know me)
I never knew the art of making love
No my heart aches with love for you
Afraid and shy I let my chance go by
The chance that you might love me too
You give your hand to me
And then you say goodbye
I watch you walk away and all I do is cry
Oh you will never never know
The one who loves you so
Well you don't know me

       这首歌有个由姚莉演唱同样动人的中文“译曲”版本《你不知道我》,歌词内涵也相仿,值得一听。相比之下,在姚莉的演唱里你能感受到东方女性的矜持,而Patti Page 则有多点soul,无论如何,都是旧时月色啊!
       也许,得不到的或失去的总是令人倍感珍贵?因此世间许多(本应美好的)憾事常令人留恋不已,也成就了艺术的感染力。
