【日中翻譯】POWDER SNOW

好久沒有PO翻譯啦!
一直以來我都盡量避免翻譯特別有名的歌曲,尤其是和動漫相關的,因為網路上一定已經有很多譯本了。
不過對這首歌我還是沒能忍住。
這首POWDER SNOW原本是遊戲/動畫「WHITE ALBUM」中的插入曲。但不知道為什麼變得特別有名,然後就出現了諸多的翻唱/改編版本,在WHITE ALBUM系列中也被多次重複使用。
而我最初聽到的則是收錄在Suara的專輯「花凛」中的版本,此處的歌詞編排也以此版本為準。
(小小聲:Suara的vocal絕對是這諸多版本中最有水準的)

我一開始並不知道WHITE ALBUM這部作品,原本對這首歌的印象也只是覺得很好聽而已。
但在前段時間看過了動畫之後,突然覺得歌詞之中多出了好多意象和內涵;一旦把歌曲放在那些特定的情境下進行解讀,對整首歌的感受也就變得完全不一樣了。
這正好從一個側面反映出了故事(narrative)的力量所在。
另外,歌名「POWDER SNOW」的翻譯原本是可以直接取用日文漢字「粉雪」的,不過把四音拍的日文轉換成二音節的漢字著實有些不妥,原文中那種特別的美感也丟失了。
「點點細雪」雖然不算是很好的歌名翻譯,但在這種情況下大概勉強可以算是最優的吧。

The Beatles: The Beatles

With Revolver and, especially, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Beatles had radically altered the sound of rock music in the mid-1960s. Rock and roll was no longer content to be short songs with a steady beat that sent teenagers running to the dance floor. 5,298 more words
