美國鄉村樂紅星[瑪蒂娜麥布萊]──鄉村/傳統流行/輕爵士/聖誕抒情曲──[The Christmas Song/聖誕之歌]

 

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Jack Frost nipping at your nose

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

Dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe

Help to make the season bright

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow

Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santas on his way

Hes bringing lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh

And every mothers child is gonna spy

To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so Im offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to ninety two

Although its been said many times, many ways

Merry Christmas to you

They know that Santas on his way

Hes loaded lots of toys and goodies

On his sleigh

And every mothers child is gonna spy

To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so Im offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to ninety two

Although its been said many times, many ways

Merry Christmas to you

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you

 

 

1998年9月底, 32歲的美國鄉村樂紅星瑪蒂娜麥布萊(Martina McBride)發行第五張錄音室大碟/首張聖誕專輯[White Christmas](RCA出版)

製作人除瑪蒂娜外, 尚包括Rob Christie, Patrick Williams, Paul Worley, 將眾多聖誕明曲改編成融合鄉村,傳統流行與輕爵士的曲風, 樂評中上

大碟登上Billboard專輯榜#64 副榜--鄉村專輯榜#9 節慶專輯榜#6

2007再版, 增錄數首新歌,

2013年重新發行, 並改名[The Classic Christmas Album]──上Billboard專輯榜#127 副榜--鄉村專輯榜#27

由於每年持續銷售, 至今已取得雙白金唱片(200萬張)

加拿大也取得金唱片(5萬張)

 

大碟陸續發行多首宣傳單曲

2001年, The Christmas Song/聖誕之歌]成為主打之一

這是1945年由美國音樂人Bob Wells Mel Tormé創作的聖誕歌曲經典

被許多歌手翻唱過

最著名的是美國黑人歌手/鋼琴家納京高(Nat king Cole, 1919-1965)於1961年灌錄的(個人)第四版

瑪蒂娜的版本是融合鄉村, 傳統流行與輕爵士的聖誕抒情曲

在柔緩的鋼琴與絃樂聲中, 瑪蒂娜的演繹感性, 合聲溫馨

The Christmas Song]登上Billboard副榜--鄉村單曲榜#67

在筆者聽過的幾個版本中, 瑪蒂娜的詮釋是蠻出色的一版
