Sarah Vaughan – The Shadow of Your Smile

by on Jun.09, 2010, under Cavia666

“The Shadow of Your Smile” 是 Johnny Mandel 作曲, Paul Francis Webster 作词的经典歌曲. 1965年由小号手 Jack Sheldon 引入电影 The Sandpiper. 后来被 Tony Bennett 翻唱获得一定影响. 这里是 Sarah Vaughan 的版本. 应该是从纪录片里剪下来的, 所以不完整. Youtube 上有完整3分钟, 点这里看. Sarah Vaughan 的声音非常有力量, 在历史女性 vocal 里可以排在前四. youtube 上排名最高的评论说:

“its a shame we don’t have great singers like this anymore. all we got is stupid lady gaga and rhianna.”

这首歌后来也被翻唱过很多次, 比较出名的有 Astrud Gilberto, Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams 等等, 很多人喜欢 Peggy Lee 的版本, 实际上 Barbra Streisand 翻唱的更出名一些 (但是很烂, 像在念音标). Astrud Gilberto 的 bossa nova 版本是我的第二选择, 非常直白没什么修饰.

Astrud Gilberto version:
