Les Misérables – Javert Stars

聽他唱歌真是世界第一大享受啊!

這首很美的歌曲,是悲慘世界裡面那位正直不阿的 Javert 在星空之下所唱的,曲調雖然抒情,但是台詞裡卻充滿着 Javert 誓言要抓到 Jean Valjean 的堅定決心。我自己最喜歡的還是 Norm Lewis 在悲慘世界二十五週年當中所詮釋的版本,除了他那撼動人心的聲音之外,我個人也深深地被他那充滿情感又渾厚耐聽的聲音所打動。

我總覺得,Norm Lewis 不光是演唱這首歌而已,他還演活了這首歌。

很討厭的是 Norm Lewis 的 video 常常會被刪掉,找半天現在只找得到這個版本,大家還是自己去買 DVD 吧!


另一個我也十分喜愛的版本是 Philip Quast 在悲慘世界十週年的時候所演出的版本。他所演出的 Javert 跟 Norm 那種直率熱血、嫉惡如仇的強烈感覺有點不同;Philip 所詮釋的 Javert 的感覺是更加老練成熟、更加世故精明的角色。我自己認為這兩個表演者都很有自己獨到的詮釋風格,也分別賦予了 Javert 不同的性格跟情感,其實無法比較出誰的版本比較好,因為不管是哪個版本我都很喜歡。

相較之下,電影悲慘世界當中 Russell Crowe 所演唱的版本,感覺就真的很像 Teddy Bear 唱歌般可愛。雖然我看不到他在這裡演出的表現,無法判斷他的演出到精不精彩,但是光從他的歌聲當中,實在感覺不太到 Javert 該有的情感,就是平平淡淡的沒有特殊的起伏。

就欣賞這首歌的角度來看,我想我可能不會選擇 Russell Crowe 的演唱版本吧!不過我倒是很想看看他演出的 Javert。

There, out in the darkness
A fugitive running
Fallen from God
Fallen from grace
God be my witness
I never shall yield
Till we come face to face
Till we come face to face
He knows his way in the dark
But mine is the way of the Lord
And those who follow the path of the righteous
Shall have their reward
And if they fall
As Lucifer fell
The flame
The sword!

Stars
In your multitudes
Scarce to be counted
Filling the darkness
With order and light
You are the sentinels
Silent and sure
Keeping watch in the night
Keeping watch in the night

You know your place in the sky
You hold your course and your aim
And each in your season
Returns and returns
And is always the same
And if you fall as Lucifer fell
You fall in vain!

And so it must be
And so it is written
On the doorway to paradise
That those who falter and those who fall
Must pay the price!

Lord let me find him
That I may see him
Safe behind bars
I will never rest
Till then, this I swear
This I swear by the stars!
