最近看朋友們MSN上的暱稱,還有部落格的碎碎念,可說是哀鴻遍野、贛聲連連啊!
這也難怪,奧運中華代表隊的焦點項目--棒球,差不多要打包回家了,
輸了四場,只贏荷蘭,又都是輸個一分,加上最近暑熱難消,
於是造成民眾火氣上升,偏又意志消沈....



有鑑於此,今天Harmony就選了幾首勵志音樂來幫大家加油打氣一下!
說是自我安慰也好、自我催眠也好、做白日夢也好,正面思考絕對不是壞事啊!
總之,
絕不屈服!(Never Sureender) 
事情只會漸入佳境!(Things Can Only Get Better)
我們是打不倒的,是無敵的!!(Invincible)



Corey Hart - Never Surrender 



歌名: Never Surrender 
演唱者:Corey Hart (柯瑞‧哈特)
收錄專輯:Boy In the Box
發行日期:June 14 1985
發行公司:Aquarius



看到這名字,可能有人以為是當紅女歌手Pink的老公... 不,只是同名同姓而已。

來自加拿大的帥哥Corey Hart,在80年代是一位相當受歡迎的偶像歌手,
外型帥氣,但歌藝其實不錯,也會創作,更曾獲葛萊美獎的提名(不過沒得獎);
關於他最著名的一則內幕是,票房電影Back to The Future(回到未來)最初鎖定的主角是他,
在他拒絕演出之後,才改找Michael J. Fox來演出。
當時有人替他感到惋惜,覺得損失了一個賺錢的機會,但二十多年後回頭看,似乎也不盡然......
Corey Hart目前與家人居住在巴哈馬,從事幕後創作的工作。
這首Never Surrender當年在美國最高名次是第三名,在他的家鄉加拿大則是冠軍曲。



Howard Jones - Things Can Only Get Better



歌名: Things Can Only Get Better 
演唱者:Howard Jones
收錄專輯:Dream Into Action
發行日期:March 23, 1985
發行公司:WEA / Elektra



來自英國的創作歌手Howard Jones擅長鋼琴、鍵盤樂器和各種電子合成樂器,
在80年代新浪潮當道時崛起,樂風融合了Pop, Rock, New Wave, Synthpop
這首節奏明快的Things Can Only Get Better則加上了Funk的元素,
果然非常有撫慰人心的作用,讓人相信一切都沒問題,會越來越好的!
當年最高名次,美國第五,英國第六名。
他目前仍活躍於樂壇,幕前幕後都不斷有作品問世,是一位專職的音樂人。



Pat Benatar - Invincible



歌名: Invincible
演唱者:Pat Benatar (派特‧班納塔)
收錄專輯:Seven the Hard Way
發行年份:1985
發行公司:Chrysalis Records



Pat Benatar(派特‧班納塔)是美國著名的搖滾女歌手,歌聲清亮高亢又有爆發力,
得過四次葛萊美獎最佳搖滾女歌手的殊榮,在80年代擁有多首暢銷曲,
例如:We BelongHeartbreakerLove Is a Battlefield.....等。

這首Invincible原名是Invincible(Theme from The Legends of Billie Jean),
也就是1985年出品的女子網球傳奇人物比利珍(Billie Jean)傳記電影的主題曲,
(p.s. 和流行天王的同名歌曲無關)
最初是收錄在電影原聲帶中,隨後也收錄在她個人同年的專輯Seven the Hard Way。
詞意和曲風都非常的熱血又勵志,當年美國流行榜最高名次是第十名,搖滾榜則是第四。



 還不夠?? 那加送一首經典勵志歌 -- We Are The Champions

偉大的樂團Queen,經典的名曲。
這首歌從70年代開始就是拿來加油打氣鼓舞勵志用的首選,
我們就用這首歌來作為ending吧!
同胞們,CHEER UP!!





歌詞

Never Surrender



Just a little more time is all we're asking for
Cause just a little more time could open closing doors
Just a little uncertainty can bring you down

And nobody wants to know you now
And nobody wants to show you how

So if you're lost and on your own
You can never surrender
And if your path won't lead you home
You can never surrender

And when the night is cold and dark
You can see, you can see light
Cause no-one can take away your right
To fight and never surrender


With a little perserverence you can get things down
Without the blind adherence that has conquered some

And nobody wants to know you now
And nobody wants to show you how

So if you're lost and on your own
You can never surrender
And if your path won't lead you home
You can never surrender

And when the night is cold and dark
You can see, you can see light
Cause no-one can take away your right
To fight and never surrender, to never surrender



Things Can Only Get Better




We're not scared to lose it all
Security throw through the wall
Future dreams we have to realize
A thousand skeptic hands
Won't keep us from the things we plan
Unless we're clinging to the things we prize


And do you feel scared - I do
But I won't stop and falter
And if we threw it all away
Things can only get better
Wow wow wow oh, wow wow wow oh oh oh oh

Treating today as though it was
The last, the final show
Get to sixty and feel no regret
It may take a little time
A lonely path, an uphill climb
Success or failure will not alter it

And do you feel scared - I do
But I won't stop and falter
And if we threw it all away
Things can only get better
Wow wow wow oh, wow wow wow oh oh oh oh

And do you feel scared - I do
But I won't stop and falter
And if we threw it all away
Things can only get better
Wow wow wow oh, wow wow wow oh oh oh oh


Invincible



This bloody road remains a mystery.
This sudden darkness fills the air.

What are we waiting for ?
Won't anybody help us ?
What are we waiting for ?

We can't afford to be innocent
stand up and face the enemy.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

This shattered dream you cannot justify.
We're gonna scream until we're satisfied.

What are we running for ?
We've got the right to be angry.
What are we running for
when there's nowhere we can run to anymore ?

We can't afford to be innocent
stand up and face the enemy.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.
And with the power of conviction there is no sacrifice.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

Won't anybody help us ?
What are we running for when there's nowhere
nowhere we can run to anymore ?

We can't afford to be innocent
stand up and face the enemy.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

And with the power of conviction there is no sacrifice.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

We can't afford to be innocent
stand up and face the enemy.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.

We can't afford to be innocent
stand up and face the enemy.
It's a do or die situation - we will be invincible.
 

Bonus?  (2008.9.2新增)

經網友提醒,發現這三首歌同樣都是1985的作品......
啊,1985,多麼令人懷念的一個年代啊!

而到了2008年的今天,這些80年代的偶像會變成什麼樣呢?

先看Pat Benatar好了。

這是當年的她。


近年的她


女人畢竟比較懂得保養,而且當年的她就是走濃妝的美艷路線,
改變得其實不算多,還稱得上有韻味,只是皺紋多了些。


接下來是走創作路線的Howard Jones

當年的他



近年的他


雖說不以外型取勝,但當年的他至少長得眉清目秀,也有個人特色,
現在怎麼變成又胖又禿的老伯了......{#emotions_dlg.emotion_confused_smile}


好,那我們來看看Corey Hart

Before


當年的他,可是正牌的偶像藝人啊!
帥氣的身影,不知迷倒多少青春少女...

那他現在呢?

.................

.................

.................



After


這位有點邋遢的禿頭大叔是誰啊??!!

我知道很多帥哥美女為了不想被認定為只靠外表,
總喜歡力求突破來證實自己的實力,
所以,Corey先生你也是故意的吧?
別忘了,你只比Brad Pitt大兩歲而已耶!看看人家小布,多帥啊!

------------------------------------------------

雖說人總是會變老,但有人老得性格、老得有風華,
也同樣有人老得令人覺得不堪..........
其實這三位說起來都還好啦,只是二位男士真的有進步空間。
畢竟他們也都才四五十歲而已,還沒老到要自暴自棄才是~

智慧和內涵當然是最重要的,不過如果外表也能同時注意一下,
那就更完美了! (個人之見啦,哈哈)
