冰雨

昨晚寒流突襲,風勢相當大,臉被風刮著,很不好受。今早氣溫跌得更低,還下著雨,凍上加凍,從公司走到港台“擎天”買早餐,一人前撐著傘,冰冷的雨粉不斷撲面,凍得整個人也在發抖。這個情景讓我想起了一首十分喜歡的演歌 - 《冰雨》。

《冰雨》原是演歌男歌手佳山明生的出道作品(77年),其後曾兩次再度發行,歌曲最終在83年成為大熱作品,最高攀升至Oricon細碟榜亞軍,銷量接近80萬。《冰雨》更令佳山明生於該年末的全日本唱片大賞中勇奪一枚長期暢銷賞(歐陽菲菲亦憑《Love is Over》得同一獎項),成為他事業上的一個高峰。不過,我所喜愛的《冰雨》並非佳山明生的演繹,而是演歌女歌手日野美歌的那個比較溫婉柔麗但又帶點哀傷的版本。日野美歌,62年出生於神奈川縣鎌倉市,82年4月25日正式踏入樂壇,首張細碟名為《我的你》,但反應一般。同年12月5日她翻唱了《冰雨》,在不被看好的情況下,細碟竟獲一致好評,還緩緩上升至Oricon細碟榜第5位,大賣50萬張,於83年全年總銷量中更是排行15。歌曲大受歡迎,就連樂壇盛事《NHK紅白歌合戰》亦放棄了一些熱門偶像歌手如小泉今日子、崛智榮美而選上日野美歌。可惜自《冰雨》一曲後,日野美歌發展平平,人氣未能承接,要到87年才再以一曲合唱歌《
男和女的戀愛遊戲》打入10大,但自此後就毫無佳作。03年,日野美歌受到作曲/編曲家馬飼野康二鼓勵,化身為作詞人並以筆名“歌凛”為華原朋美與搞笑藝人コロッケ所主持的一個綜合性節目之主題曲填詞。

Oh my! I did listening to 《冰雨》a few times couple days ago when it was cold and raining. But I like 佳山明生's version better and still think that it's weird that 紅白 did not pick him but 日野美歌. To me, 日野美歌 was still too young at that stage to deliver the sadness of the song.

P.S. I always sing this with my Japanese friends when we go to K, hehe!

哈哈.. 咁岩?

紅白選人一向都有d怪,佳山明生就真係應該入選既,個年入梅澤富美男都唔入佳山明生,慘~~

除左日野美歌之外,鄧麗君個版本都好聽架喎,有無聽過?

鄧麗君 sang this too? I had no idea wow. How is her version compared to others? I did not have that many 鄧麗君's enka CDs so i did not know that. Just like i had no idea that 鄧麗君 had covered 矢切の渡し before and Akina's 艶華 version is based on 鄧麗君's version. Guess it's not suprising that many enka singers had covered 冰雨. So typical of them to release compliations of classic enkas every now and then.....

By the way, I just found out that Akina will release "歌姫伝説〜'90s BEST〜" on Feb 27! And I am so happy that I will be in Japan on that day to get the CD. That's the second time in a row that I got her CD first day out in Japan. Last time was summer of 2007 for 艶華...and I knew about 艶華 from your blog. Thanks Fun!

It's kinda sad that Akina is releasing CDs like the way an enka singer does: always a compliation of old songs.....It's like dating an ex again and again. So boring,hehe

Fun said...

其實佢而家做咩既呢?好心錄下新歌好過啦,呢條“歌姬”水唔食得好耐喎~

AKINA新歌唔係唔好聽 , 係大眾唔受 , 事實唔及翻唱碟好賣 , 歌姬玩完咪到艷華玩殘完 , 咪翻唱英文歌啦玩殘完..又玩另一樣....日本呂珊
