美國流行音樂天王麥可傑克森猝逝,令世人感到震驚。在 Lucy 成長的那個年代裏,他一直是位舉足輕重的巨星,而他也曾利用這樣的名氣,幫助過非洲災民,義舉令人感佩,謹在此網路的小小一隅和世人一同悼念與追思。

麥可傑克森留給大家討論的話題很多,包括他五歲即展露的音樂及舞蹈才華、與貓王之女的婚姻、令人難以忘懷的月球漫步舞和機械舞、史上唱片銷售量最高的紀錄保持人、整型失敗與膚色漂白的傳聞、以及後來爆發的孌童案等,正、負面皆有,不過 Lucy 所注意的,還是他在 1985 年為了救援非洲饑民,和歌手萊納李奇共同譜曲填詞,由美國 45 位大牌歌星 (包括麥可傑克森) 聯合演唱義賣的那首單曲《四海一家》(We Are The World)。

兩人費了四天的時間寫曲,萊納先完成一部分,麥可看到後靈感大發,一夜之間就把全曲寫好。之後他們又花了兩個半小時作詞,為了普遍推廣此曲,歌詞力求簡單易學。單曲完成後推出問世,受到的歡迎程度難以想像,短短數週便賣出八百萬張,為非洲兒童籌募到 4 千萬美元的慈善基金。

誠如和他有交情也是安排他第一次來台開演唱會的知名樂評人余光所言,外界對於麥可有很多討論,在他看來,麥可傑克森相當悲天憫人,否則不會寫出像 "We Are The World" 這樣經典的歌曲。就讓我們藉由出現在 "We Are The World" MV 中年輕的麥可傑克森身影,一同緬懷這位殞落的一代巨星。


We Are The World

There comes a time when we hear a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it's time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We're all a part of God's great big family
And the truth - you know love is all we need

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

Well, send'em your heart
So they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us
By turning stone to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

When you're down and out
There seems no hope at all
But if you just believe
There's no way we can fall
Well, well, well, let's realize
That one change can only come
When we stand together as one

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

(Let me hear you)
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

相信100年後的流行樂迷,
都會知道曾有麥可傑克森這麼一位 20世紀叱吒風雲的人物。

看看麥可想想自己。
我們是否也該試圖做些什麼?
證明我們沒白來過這世界一遭呢!

親愛的開課了週三見囉!

miu miu 很高興能得到妳的回應。

麥可絕對是個特別的人。
了不起的不單是獨創一格的舞蹈,
還有他那民胞民物與悲天憫人的善良天性。
(從他持續對弱勢、地球…等議題的關懷即可窺一二。)
他說話的聲音表情非常誠懇,具有撫慰人心的能力…。
就佛家的角度,絕對是個乘願到娑婆世界接引眾生的菩薩。

只是不遭人忌是庸才,人紅是非也多。
很多”事實”因人解釋的角度不同,
也造就今日的毀譽參半了。

Anyway,希望妳我用我們的方法來紀念這個了不起的麥可。

一個巨星的離開.. 是一個時代的結束
何時才又會有一個巨星出現...
