在風中的舊日記憶

 
 
Bob Dylan - Blowing in the Wind
 
 
 
 How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man ?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand ?
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea ?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free ?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky ?
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry ?
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

諾貝爾文學獎 美國歌手巴布狄倫摘桂冠

 
(中央社斯德哥爾摩13日綜合外電報導)2016年諾貝爾獎今天畫下句點,文學獎得主由75歲美國歌手巴布狄倫(Bob Dylan)獲得殊榮,得獎原因是「在美國歌曲的偉大傳統裡,創造新的詩意表現手法」。

巴布狄倫1941年5月24日出生,原名羅伯特.艾倫.齊默曼(Robert Allen Zimmerman),是一位美國歌手兼作曲人、藝術家和作家。

從1961年發布首張專輯至今,巴布狄倫在流行音樂界和文化界起到的影響已超過50年。他的大多數著名作品都來自1960年代的反抗民謠,也被廣泛認為是當時美國新興的反叛文化的代言人,儘管他否認了這一點。

他的部分早期作品成為了當時美國民權反戰運動的聖歌,例如「Blowing' in the Wind」和「The Times They Are a-Changing」。
