Summertime(夏日時光)和上次我介紹的"I Got Rhythm"一樣,是美國近代音樂家蓋希文的作品,他的音樂有很濃的爵士風格。

"夏日時光"是音樂劇波吉與貝絲(或稱乞丐與蕩婦)裡很有名的一首歌,這個音樂劇描寫的是美國南方平凡的黑人故事,在當時算是一種突破。這首歌一開始是Clara當成搖籃曲唱給寶寶聽的,感覺很悶熱、慵懶,在整個音樂劇裡出現很多次。夏天到了,感受一下他的特殊曲風。



Summertime by George Gershwin from the opera Porgy and Bess

Summertime,
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry

One of these mornings
You're going to rise up singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky

But till that morning
There's a'nothing can harm you
With daddy and mamma standing by

Summertime,
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Your daddy's rich
And your mamma's good lookin'
So hush little baby
Don't you cry
