NHK晨間劇「小梅醫生」插曲 - Anything Goes

「小梅醫生」這齣是我每天早上起床打開電視看NHK的第一部晨間劇,在這部落格有寫到這齣劇的只有最後一集結局。都播出後兩年了,為什麼我會想提到裡面的插曲呢,因為我是因為看了「小梅醫生」認識這首歌「Anything Goes」,之後三不五時就會在ICRT聽到,這首可是第二次世界大戰期間的流行歌曲呢!

在「小梅醫生」裡飾演矢吹あかね的宇野実彩子,原本就是AAA樂團的主唱,偶而會在一些日劇客串,會唱歌也會演戲。上網找了他的照片,我發現她留著瀏海的模樣比較可愛!在「小梅醫生」裡將瀏海梳起來感覺很不一樣。



我上Wikipedia查資料得知這首原本是1934年百老匯歌舞劇「Anything Goes」其中一首同名歌曲,之後在美國英國熱烈上演,日本也是,但是在台灣並沒有很紅,當年我在倫敦也沒看過相關的介紹。2011年有重新上演,並得到了東尼獎,該劇團的官網還留著,我還查到其實2011年台灣也有,劇名翻譯是「海上情緣」,許慧欣為女主角。

這齣劇背景是從紐約前往倫敦的郵輪上所發生的愛情故事,因此看到表演這首歌的舞者歌者的穿著都是水手裝,非常俏皮,配上踢踏舞,耳朵聽、眼睛看得都很愉快。但是在「小梅醫生」裡卻是站著對著麥克風靜靜地唱,氣氛完全不同。

歌詞

Times have changed,
And we've often rewound the clock,
Since the Puritans got a shock,
When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
If today,
Any shock they should try to stem,
'Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
Plymouth Rock would land on them.

In olden days a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking,
But now, God knows,
Anything Goes.

Good authors too who once knew better words,
Now only use four letter words
Writing prose, Anything Goes.

The world has gone mad today
And good's bad today,
And black's white today,
And day's night today,
When most guys today
That women prize today
Are just silly gigolos
And though I'm not a great romancer
I know that I'm bound to answer
When you propose,
Anything goes

When grandmama whose age is eighty
In night clubs is getting matey with gigolo's,
Anything Goes.

When mothers pack and leave poor father
Because they decide they'd rather be tennis pros,
Anything Goes.

If driving fast cars you like,
If low bars you like,
If old hymns you like,
If bare limbs you like,
If Mae West you like
Or me undressed you like,
Why, nobody will oppose!
When every night,
The set that's smart
Is intruding in nudist parties in studios,
Anything Goes.

The world has gone mad today
And good's bad today,
And black's white today,
And day's night today,
When most guys today
That women prize today
Are just silly gigolos
And though I'm not a great romancer
I know that I'm bound to answer
When you propose,
Anything goes

If saying your prayers you like,
If green pears you like
If old chairs you like,
If back stairs you like,
If love affairs you like
With young bears you like,
Why nobody will oppose!

And though I'm not a great romancer
And though I'm not a great romancer
I know that I'm bound to answer
When you propose,
Anything goes...
Anything goes!
