I will Survive

剛剛看了一部電影,Meet The Spartans,基本上這是一部像驚聲尖笑的搞笑電影,惡搞的對象是300壯士,除了模仿各大賣座經典電影的片段外,還嘲弄了美國的政治人物跟明星們,當然也不會錯過當紅電視節目如American Idol或是America's Next Top Model。而在裡面,Gloria Gaynor的I will survive被唱了兩次,不禁讓我想起在很多部電影都可以聽到的這首歌的故事.....XD

這首歌是70年代disco經典,Gloria本身是1978年表演時從舞台跌落導致脊椎受傷休養了九個月,結果1979她復出後這首歌不但獲得葛萊美獎,一直到了21世紀的現在也歷久不衰;下面是她的live版本。


回到這不是斯巴達這部電影,下面是電影中翻唱I will survive的片段,第二個片尾演員介紹那段大團圓真的讚,後面還有模仿小甜甜的Britney bitch...XD

除此之外,印象中還在幾部電影中聽過這首歌,像是基努李維的十全大補男裡面,他們在酒吧打架以後被關起來,裡面的黑人開始唸I will Survive的歌詞接著就合唱並跳起舞來...


還有金凱瑞演的"The Man on the Moon"裡面Tony Clifton在舞台上也有亂唱這首歌XD(要看到比較後面才會開始唱)


網路上說還有不少電影也用這首歌。像是1992年德國電影走出寂靜(Beyond Silence) 、1992年的 神鬼戰士(Gladiator) 、1994年的 你是我今生的新娘(Four Weddings & A Funeral )、1999年女狼俱樂部(Coyote Ugly),還有07年的 豆豆假期(Mr. Bean’s Holiday)

其實youtube上面還有很多有趣的版本,像是有一個在小提琴鋼琴雙重奏的演奏會上也有近似惡搞的演出...


下面這是瑞典樂團Hermes House Band唱的版本,後面那段remix超high的啊~~~不愧是party專用。


這是我不認識的SAFIRE,中間還穿插rap...Orz


其實我最愛的版本是之前寫過的Cake

在聽的同時,這首歌的歌詞也實在值得看一下...
At first I was afraid I was petrified
Kept thinkin’ I could never live without you by my side;
But then I spent so many nights
Thinkin’ how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And so you’re back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I’d've known for just one second you’d back to bother me
Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
(’cause) you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Did I crumble
Did you think I’d lay down and die?
Oh no, not.I. I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love I know I’ll stay alive;
I’ve got all my life to live,
I’ve got all my love to give and I’ll survive,
I will survive. Hey hey.
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept trying’ hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart,
And I spent oh so many nights
Just feeling sorry for myself. I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high
And you see me somebody new
I’m not that chained up little person still in love with you,
And so you feel like droppin’ in
And just expect me to be free,
Now I’m savin’ all my lovin’ for someone who’s lovin’ me
Go on now..
