下一位,林育群

一夜再成名,得靠外地媒體鋪天蓋地的報導,最手到拿來便是將其喻為"The Next Susan Boyle",唱得好只是入場劵,其貌不揚才是最亮點,讓大家更集中注意他的表現,反差之下感染力更大,畢竟要有戲劇性。加上標誌西瓜頭的造形,一見難忘,全身莊重又帶點莫名的詼諧,好有討人歡喜的喜劇效果,比最初參賽時乾淨俐落得多,而噸位十足,氣定神閒,《I Will Always Love You》,我喜歡。不過怎樣也看不出外號小胖的林育群剛好今天生日,原來已經廿四歲,第一眼還以為是尚未轉聲的少年。

Susan Boyle《Cry Me A River》

喜歡的當然是她的歌聲,也是她的表現。當Susan Boyle站在台上的一刻便教我想起Bjork在電影《Dancer in the Dark》的模樣,小小瞇成一線的眼睛彷彿看不到太遠的未來,也好像看不清面前評判的輕蔑與觀眾的訕笑,只以一臉滄桑又帶著孩子似的微笑面對,羞澀之中有著堅忍和自信,傻傻的,沒有太多修飾的一刻,當嗓門打開以後的瞬間現場捲起巨浪滔滔的掌聲及歡呼,沿著Youtube湧向世界,帶來淹沒全球的驚訝與喜悅,一如選對了演繹的歌曲《I Dreamed a Dream》,感人肺腑的耳熟能詳,本來活在悲慘世界的你我有夢,現在不過由她成真。

再聽聽,原來早於九九年Susan Boyle已為蘇格蘭當地的一張慈善合輯灌錄過老曲《Cry Me a River》,憂郁藍調的傷心情歌,直搗心坎,縱然是賺每人一小滴的熱淚也好,也能匯流成河吧。

Cry Me a River

Now you say you’re lonely
You cry the whole night through
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now you say you’re sorry
For bein’ so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember all that you said
Told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and
Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river, cry me a river

I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
