韩国的Ukulele picnic乐队也翻唱过,声音比上面这个视频甜。

这首歌的故事也很有趣。这首歌其实是首1969年的老歌,原唱是一个虚拟的乐队,这个乐队由一部动画片的角色组成。出来后迅速占领Billboard热曲榜首,并维持了4周,同年占据UK最热单曲8周,成为bubblegum pop类型的经典之作,被10多位歌手翻唱,成为一家糖果公司的广告歌,以及多部电影的插曲。

这首歌用到的和弦有四个:C G Am F
歌词:
Our whole universe was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started.
Wait…
The Earth began to cool,
The autotrophs began to drool,
Neanderthals developed tools,
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries,
That all started with the big bang!

The Owl and the Pussycat

很有意思的一首歌。演唱者Heidi Swedberg的演绎也很有特点。Heidi Swedberg是一名演员,同时还在玩一个乐队:Heidi Swedberg and The Sukey Jump Band

这是一首英文古诗,关于猫头鹰与猫的爱情故事,来自于Edward Lear的诗集《A Book of Nonsense》,有人翻译成诙谐诗,我倒觉得《胡诌诗集》这个名字更贴切。

I

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
‘O lovely Pussy! O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!’

II

Pussy said to the Owl, ‘You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?’
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

III

‘Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?’ Said the Piggy, ‘I will.’
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.
