因為網友詢問起Cyndi Lauper 在1993年年底二度來台的演唱會,我才突然想起,原來這些資料自己都有保存著,只好到自己的藏書閣尋找這些已經泛黃不堪的剪報資料了,現在回想起來,除了當時那場演唱會讓人久久難忘(其實根本已經沒什麼印象),最開心的是這些剪貼簿現在反而成為寫blog的一種素材。

從小我便對音樂的報導非常注意,或許是幻想哪一天能當記者的一種準備,所以從國小開始我就認定自己要唸大眾傳播系,而從國小五年級開始,我便養成每天剪報的習慣,遇到重大事情還會特定去蒐集報紙,這一剪一貼都是辛苦,剪貼簿上除了所有的西洋音樂新聞消息,還會有每週報紙刊登的排行榜,也包括電影資料及「知音時間」、「金曲龍虎榜」等,有時候還要稍微做些排版的修飾,每每把這些剪貼簿帶到學校給同學欣賞,大家都振奮不已,當然我們那個年紀必買的余光雜誌,固定必拿的滾石唱片與飛碟唱片的樂訊都是我捨不得丟掉的,所以每次只要搬家,這些東西就算造成困擾,卻仍然是記憶中聽音樂開心的精神食糧,自然還是沒有丟棄。

 我通常會到書店買一本比A4還要大的條紋筆記本,然後從小五開始,這一貼就是十年以上
,一直到大三我在Tower打工後才停頓,這是因為網路的興起,才不需要再靠人力把資料整理起來。不過就在我現在觀看自己1994年的剪報時卻頗有感觸,除了Cyndi Lauper93年底在TICC的兩場跨年演唱會,有惠妮94年葛萊美獎大獲全勝的報導,還有INXS的台北演唱會...等洋洋灑灑的報導,我才發現,西洋流行音樂在現在的傳媒上有多麼的弱勢,以前西洋音樂不光有許多深度專題,就連名氣不大的新人或是排行榜歌手幾乎都可以有許多詳實的報導,現在不是了,除了唱片公司主推的藝人和大牌的歌手外,幾乎很難看到屬於西洋音樂的版面,加上新聞都以綜藝型態來包裝,真的讓人感嘆聽西洋流行音樂者只能自力更生,更別提現實的傳媒環境已經糟糕許久,遑論媒體專業在西洋音樂上簡直是0分。

回到這場演唱會吧。辛蒂的表演音樂性著重於娛樂性,但不代表她沒有「爆點」,我依稀記得她在舞台上跑來跑去,唱歌到激昂處還會「起乩」,歌聲好的沒話說,感人的指數就和她最新的DVD「At Last」現場演唱一樣,本來我只是買1200的票,但也不知怎回事,大家一high起來全部往舞台前面衝,這真的是TICC特有的現象,畢竟辛蒂販賣的還是一種搖滾吧。這幾年來看了很多表演,但辛蒂卻有一種少由人及的「真誠」,你會認為她就是純粹和大家分享音樂,把淋漓盡致的歌聲演唱出來,甚至拿一些怪怪的敲擊樂器(例如一個怪掛在脖子上像洗衣版的刷刷樂器)都讓人沉醉其中,我還記得她演唱〈Sally's Pigeons〉似乎很感性、很催淚吧。

其他我也沒印象了...只記得那是一個讓台北難忘的一夜。

Cyndi Lauper Strips Down
Monday September 12, 11:19 am ET 
Music Icon Cooks Up Fresh Versions of Big Hits on New Album The Body Acoustic
Special Guests Include Sarah McLachlan, Shaggy, Jeff Beck, Ani DiFranco and Vivian Green



NEW YORK, N.Y., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- When Cyndi Lauper emerged
on the scene twenty five years ago, it was a defining moment for pop
music. And since then, her contributions have never stopped -- album
after album, Cyndi has delivered hit songs that literally comprise
the soundtrack of our lives. And this fall Cyndi prepares to release
her 9th album The Body Acoustic with Daylight/Epic Records on
November 8th. On The Body Acoustic Cyndi revisits songs like "Time
After Time," "True Colors," "She Bop," "Shine," and more giving them
a modern day extreme makeover. Adding fresh flavor, rich textures,
rawness and unexpected twists and turns -- plus special guests like
Sarah McLachlan, Shaggy, Kelly Osbourne, Ani DiFranco, Jeff Beck and
Vivian Green -- Cyndi shows her singing, producing and writing
talents at an all time high.

On "Money Changes Everything" Cyndi is joined by Adam Lazzara of
Taking Back Sunday who gives the song a twangy earthy quality. "Time
After Time" features the angelic voice of Sarah McLachlan, who
brings a new tenderness to the gem. Reggae/pop superstar Shaggy
lends his trademark voice on the newly funky "All Through The
Night," while Kelly Osbourne joins in on the fun on "Girls Just Want
to Have Fun." Other highlights include "Sisters of Avalon" with Ani
DiFranco & Vivian Green, and "Water's Edge" (from the 2002 EP Shine)
w/ Sarah McLachlan. With her unique vocals, Cyndi continues to spice
things up with fresh versions of such hits
as "Shine," "Fearless," "She Bop" and "True Colors." The album also
contains two brand new songs co-written by Cyndi Lauper, "Above The
Clouds" featuring guitar legend Jeff Beck and "I'll Be Your River"
with Vivian Green. The Body Acoustic was produced by Cyndi herself
along with renowned producers Rick Chertoff (She's So Unusual) and
William Wittman (At Last) and the result is nothing short of
spectacular.

The vibrant talent of Cyndi Lauper has graced our world for 25
years. Beginning in 1980 Cyndi and her band at the time, Blue Angel
released a self- titled album but in 1983 as many artists do, Cyndi
decided to depart the group and take on the world as a solo artist.
It was in 1984 with the release of her debut album, She's So Unusual
that Cyndi scored massive success -- 9 million copies sold
worldwide -- and quite literally became an overnight success. She's
So Unusual was the first debut album and the first debut album by a
solo artist to garner four top five singles, "Girls Just Want To
Have Fun," "All Through The Night," "She Bop," and "Time After
Time." She's So Unusual earned Cyndi a Grammy Award for Best New
Artist. And this was just the beginning ...

>From there Cyndi went on to release and co-produce True Colors, of
which came it's #1 title track, and another Grammy nomination for
the artist. Three years later in 1989, A Night To Remember was born
on which Cyndi wrote or co- wrote eight of the eleven tracks and co-
produced most of the album herself. A Hat Full Of Stars, Sisters Of
Avalon, Merry Xmas Have a Nice Life, Shine and Cyndi's most recent
critically acclaimed 2003 release, At Last all followed suit.

In addition to proving herself as a Grammy-winning artist, Cyndi
Lauper has spent much of the past twenty-five years as a devoted
advocate and philanthropist for such organizations as AMFAR, Aids
Research, Planned Parenthood, Women's Rights as well as for Gay
communities all over the world. She has been twice nominated for the
Emmy Award -- has won once -- and has established herself as one of
America's most loved fashion icons.

  • 戴斯蒙
  • 國際會議中心那場我也有去<br />
    記得更早之前 她也有在還沒弄好的信義計畫區那邊開演唱會<br />
    實在太喜歡看她表演了 ...
  • shiningmint
  • 雖然我沒有渡過以前那有深度專題報導的時期<br />
    但是也可以很明顯感覺到現在媒體對於西洋音樂的認識根本就是不及格<br />
    還曾經看著新聞或指著報紙罵呢XD<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    台灣現在西洋音樂市場真的很小媽?<br />
    市面上連一本西洋樂的專屬雜誌都沒有<br />
    可是卻到處可見哈韓誌.哈日誌之類的<br />
    上次還看到喬傑利也出一本雜誌= =噗.....很想把它丟到地上踩...這也叫雜誌嗎
  • ken
  • 可憐的唱片業.....<br />
    做唱片的生存空間越來越小<br />
    不勝唏噓!!!!!
  • wangtw
  • 錯過Cyndi與Tina來台的演唱會是我這一輩子的遺憾啊!<br />
    Cyndia新專輯請來一堆人翻唱自己的舊歌,<br />
    包括與莎拉合唱Time After Time(尖叫~~~),<br />
    Epic發的,現在換到你們家了!<br />
    <br />
  • jordy
  • Sophia 謝謝你的留言喔<br />
    <br />
    To.大衛 and all<br />
    我錯過的可多的!!! 葛洛莉亞/Tina/Roxette 這些應該都不會再來了吧<br />
    不過依照我的個性<br />
    還好我沒去看Mimi....
  • madonnanet
  • 你幹嘛要去看咪咪 丟雞蛋嗎?? :p
  • yorickho
  • 上面戴斯蒙說的那場<br />
    應該是1989年的"A Night To Remember"演唱會。<br />
    金頭髮前面染一撮黑的,對不對? ^_^<br />
    對了,jordy<br />
    11月8日台灣也會同步發行Cyndi的"Body Acoustic"專輯嗎?<br />
  • jordy
  • 應該會晚個一週吧<br />
    呼呼
  • firth
  • 現在的音樂市場真的很糟糕<br />
    不過弔詭的是<br />
    這反而也提供了小眾廠牌茁壯培養忠實購買者的機會<br />
    其實小眾另類的音樂活動這幾年是活絡的<br />
    野台,秋虎祭,草地音樂會,等等的活動<br />
    參與的feedback是不錯的<br />
    <br />
    只是這些族群還是少數<br />
    主流大眾的消費者卻因為市場蕭條<br />
    沒有機會接觸除了一些年度大片以外的音樂<br />
    唱片公司只能投注預算在"會賣"的音樂類別<br />
    像裘弟想代理小發行的專輯 玫瑰大眾壟斷的主要通路卻不願意進<br />
    一般消費者沒機會認識他們又怎麼去購買他們的音樂?<br />
    <br />
    也許要等整個市場潮流來個大翻轉<br />
    小眾變大眾口味 不過看來好像很難<br />
    目前似乎只能惡性循環的<br />
    大眾市場還是死在狹宰的音樂類別<br />
    <br />
    看完文章和回應有點感嘆 @@
  • 悠
  • 總覺得現在的唱片公司打廣告的都是排行前10的西洋藝人<br />
    其他都沒有<br />
    而且現在台灣翻國外的歌也一堆<br />
    天哪<br />
    對辛蒂不是那麼熟<br />
    但他的歌我覺得非常好聽
  • Ed
  • I was there too

    Hhaa. I can still remember when Tiffany came here for the second time, when she finished the "last song", no one stayed shouting out Anchor. People just left without wanting her to sing one more song. I saw her husband appearing on the stage showing an "unbelievable" face. How sad.
