瑞典的歌后索菲婭·格林(Sofia Kallgren)是首位簽約中國唱片的歐洲著名歌星,也是位瑞典家喻戶曉的女歌手,多次獲得唱片大獎,唱的是陳昇經典歌曲《把悲傷留給自己》。12歲就開始登台表演,因與世界級鋼琴家韋爾斯的合作,「銀狐」美譽因此得名。

可別以為Sofia Kallgren翻唱中文單純是興趣唱個一兩首而已,05年東方西方 (Eastward Westward) 這張專輯除了《把悲傷留給自己》外,還有《味道》《女人花》《阿里山的姑娘》等十多首在華人圈裡傳唱甚廣的經典流行歌曲 。據專輯的音樂製作人王厚明介紹:「索菲婭對中國十分熱愛和嚮往,她憑藉自己對音樂的熱愛、對中國的瞭解和對生活的感悟,填寫出英文歌詞。」

《把悲傷留給自己》寫一個癡情男子在面對逝去的戀情,把心中的苦化作誠心的祝福,還有男人在愛情裡的卑微及懦弱。Sofia Kallgren《Smells of Roses》從花團緊簇中起興,想春天的大地讓人甦醒,雖然黑夜還是會來臨,卻帶了幾分希望,「Among roses I found my home, my home 」不如昇哥那樣的傷悲,歌曲的表現上,Sofia Kallgren也如同自己重新填的歌詞,以一種看似不經意的輕柔優美,沖散掉原曲的傷悲,用平靜的心看待過往及未來!

Smells of Roses 玫瑰花香

Sonfia Kallqren 索菲婭.格林

Here in the garden, among the flowers 花園之內置身花叢,

Smells of roses that fill my head 玫瑰花香浸滿心胸,

And the sun beams through the tree trunks 陽光輕輕穿過樹影,

Dancing around me in purple red 身邊舞動一片紫紅。

And the river’s always flowing 大江東去永不停留,

And like love it finds its way 就像愛情找尋出口,

I sing my song when the wind blows 伴著風起輕聲吟唱,

All misgivings I will allay 我將淡化所有憂愁。

But what if night time lingers over 如果長夜漫漫襲來,

Stay forever around my heart 紛紛擾擾佔據胸口,

And the shadows will all surround me 黑暗將我緊緊圍繞,

Could I see though it’s so dark 是否能夠望到盡頭?

And what if your love goes away now 你若真的不再愛我,

Leave me lost here and all alone 棄我一人在此守候,

Oh, Could I find a way through it當你離我遠去以後,

Could I live here when you are gone, are gone 我可在此長久駐留?

Cos I’v been searching through my whole life 生命之中苦苦尋求,

For a place to call my own 只求一隅為我擁有,

Now I finally have found what I love 直到現在我才發現,

Among roses I found my home 玫瑰深處有我綠洲。

But what if night time lingers over 如果長夜漫漫襲來,

Stay forever around my heart 紛紛擾擾佔據胸口,

And the shadows will all surround me 黑暗將我緊緊圍繞,

Could I see though it’s so dark 是否能夠望到盡頭?

And what if your love goes away now 你若真的不再愛我,

Leave me lost here and all alone 棄我一人在此守候,

Oh, Could I find a way through it當你離我遠去以後,

Could I live here when you are gone, are gone 我可在此長久駐留?

Here in the garden among the flowers 花園之內置身花叢

Smells of roses that fill my head 玫瑰花香浸滿心胸

Now I finally have found what I love 終於找到愛之所在

Among roses I found my home, my home 玫瑰深處有我綠洲

Now I finally have found my home, my home 終於找到我的家園

Among roses,among roses,among roses... 玫瑰深處有我綠洲
