美國歌壇天后[芭芭拉史翠珊]──成人流行抒情曲──[If I Could/假如我能]

 

 

If I could

Id protect you from the sadness in your eyes

Give you courage in a world of compromise

Yes, I would

If I could

I would teach you all the things Ive never learned

And Id help you cross the bridges that Ive burned

Yes, I would

If I could

I would try to shield your innocence from time

But the part of life I gave you isnt mine

Ive watched you grow

So I could let you go

If I could

I would help you make it through the hungry years

But I know that I can never cry your tears

But I would

If I could

If I live

In a time and place where you dont want to be

You dont have to walk along this road with me

My yesterday

Wont have to be your way

If I knew

Id have tried to change the world I brought to you to

And there isnt very much that I can do

But I would

If I could

If I could

I would try to shield your innocence from time

But the part of life I gave you isnt mine

Ive watched you grow

So I could let you go

If, if I could

I would help you make it through those hungry years

But I know that I can never cry your tears

But I would

If I could

Yes I would

Yes I would

If I could

 

1997年11月,55歲半的美國歌壇巨星芭芭拉.史翠珊(Barbra Streisand)發行27張錄音室大碟[Higher Ground](Columbia出版)

製作人除她本人外, 尚包括Walter Afanasieff, David Foster, Arif Mardin, Jeremy Lubbock, Mervyn Warren

樂評中等,但商業表現成功:

登上睽違12年的美國Billboard專輯榜后座, 為其事業第八張冠軍

拿到3白金(300萬張+)(1998年終#16

 

英國#12 金唱片(10萬張+)(1997年終#64

加拿大#5 3白金唱片(30萬張+)(1997年終#11

荷蘭#5 白金唱片(10萬張+)

澳大利亞#14 白金唱片(7萬張+)

 

首支單曲[Tell Me]與加拿大天后席琳狄翁(Celine Dion)合唱, 登上英國單曲榜#3, 成為歐洲暢銷曲。

1998年初, 芭芭拉推出第二單曲[If I Could/假如我能]──美國只以宣傳主打推出, 歐洲只限地發行。

此曲由Ken Hirsch, Ron Miller, Marti Sharron譜寫。

曾由爵士樂歌手Nancy Wilson,非裔歌姬Regina Belle灌錄,

史翠珊版由她跟Arif Mardin製作成一首成人流行抒情曲,Jeremy Lubbock負責管弦樂編曲與指揮, 芭芭拉的演繹深情投入。

由於宣傳不多, If I Could]並沒入榜, 但仍是首精緻的翻唱。
