The Hourglass Song

By | 2008 年 04 月 07 日

The Hourglass song, 又名Blue Ballon或Jeremy或The Theme of Jeremy,电影《Jeremy》(《Jeremy Jones》)的原音。

选这首歌,多半和这部电影关于初恋有关,当然电影也有些年岁了——1973。还记得,影片的开头就是段优美的旋律,然后上网使劲的寻找它的OST。值得一提的是,这部电影的原音只有两首歌,一首是男主角Robby Benson演唱的这首《The Hourglass Song》,而另外一首则是女主角Glynnis O’Connor演唱的《Jeremy》。

说起Robby Benson,却是位天才:导演过包括Friends在内的多部影视剧,演出过多部影视剧,还曾担当过《美女与野兽》的配音,另外好出过好几张音乐专辑,也担当过制作人,编剧等。找来他最近的照片,再与15岁时剧中年轻的Jeremy相比,不得不感慨年华易逝阿。

Blue Balloon (The Hourglass Song) by Robby Benson

I have a blue balloon
A happy tune
Love enough to last me all through the afternoon
I have the New York time and 14 dimes
And expectations of the most profound nursery rhyme

Before the rivers run dry
Before the last say good-bye
Let us be kind to one another
We can try…

So don’t just throw your love about
It’s not too late to find out
Before the sand has all run out of the hourglass

The carnival is here
The crown appears
Plastic painted people hold each other near
Hopes are always high
The echo of the sky
And when it’s over
There just a lonely sound of good-bye

Before the rivers run dry
Before the last say good-bye
Let us be kind to one another
We can try

So don’t just throw your love about
It’s not too late to find out
Before the sand has all run out of the hourglass

Too late to hide it now
It’s all around us now
Oh ! How I want you girl
To lie beside me now
While there still this time
And now my poems still rhyme
Let me love you now
We can drink a good good wine

Before the rivers run dry
Before the last say good-bye
Let us be kind to one another
If we can try

So don’t just throw your love about
You and me, hey, let’s find out
Before the sand has all run out of the hour-glass

值得一提的是,尽管寻找这首歌的过程比较艰辛,但能找到这么多不同演绎版本的歌曲,也是蛮快乐的事情。比如这首歌曲的纯音乐版

还有香港歌神许冠杰的版本

以及情歌王子张信哲的演绎

另外还在自己的电脑中找到了一位不知名的歌手演绎的版本

和另外一首网络上找来的歌曲
