天佑阿梅

God Bless Ah Mui


《京华时报》前晚,梅艳芳个唱在港开锣,红馆首场全场爆满。

Anita Mui's concert started the night before.  It was full house.


你们一定还记得上世纪80年代,香港乐坛的那段繁荣盛世。谭(咏麟)张(国荣)梅(艳芳)各霸一方,影响蔓延至今,时间消逝,哥哥红颜已去,阿梅又染沉疴。你们一定也记得去年阿梅的那张《WITH》(内地版名为《梦幻组合》),短短50分钟,从谭张之争到四大天王再到天后割据,那张唱片几乎囊括了香港乐坛所有曾经一呼百应的声音,概括了一段起起落落的历史。
任何人都只能见证一段历史,阿梅算是幸运,因为她见证的是一段最辉煌的时代。而她在这个时代中,一直都是最有分量的天后。

You must remember in the 80s, Hong Kong music industry was booming and in full blossom.  The market was divided among Tam (Alan) Cheung (Leslie) and Mui (Yim Fong Anita).  Their influence continues till today.  Time just flies, Gor Gor just left this world, Ah Mui got sick.  You must also remember Ah Mui's album of last year, [With].  (In mainland China it is called Fantasy Group).  Just in 50 minutes, the album combines almost most famous voices of the whole  HK music industry, it also  includes history of competition between Tam and Chueng, then the 4 heavenly kings, and the queens.  Every one is a witness of a period of history, Ah Mui is the most fortunate, because she witnesses a period of blossom.  Also during her era,  she  remains to be the queen of the highest prestige all the time.  


她的意义已经不仅仅是那些传世的名曲,不仅仅是百变的形象,更不仅仅是因为命运多舛而延伸出的话题,她是整个香港乐坛的传奇,是整个中国少有的超级巨星。而且,她即使身患重病,也根本不会让人联想到脆弱和红颜薄命,因为,她一直都是坚强的和刚硬的,如同她的音乐。

She doesn't only mean her famous songs that will be remembered forever, not only her ever changing images, also not only many romours due to her fate, she is the miracle of whole HK music industry, and one of the very rare super stars of the whole China.  Also, even she is suffering from serious sickness, people definitely would not related her with weakness or beauty with bad fate.  It is because she is always the strongest, the toughest just like her music.


去年是梅艳芳入行第20年。20年来,她以独特的嗓音和不折不扣的作风,留下了30多张经典唱片和逾50部电影。早在1987年,她就在香港红馆连开28场演唱会,创下了同一歌手同一地点演唱最久的世界纪录。对于一个女艺人来说,这样的纪录可谓神话。但是在当时,作为曾和当年峰顶浪尖的天皇巨星谭咏麟与张国荣名气不相上下的艺人,在阿梅身上,神话也成为可能。
据说,这次连开8场的红馆个唱有可能成为梅艳芳演艺生涯的绝唱,如果真的是这样,我们接受一位巨星以这样的方式为自己的事业画上句号。这样轰轰烈烈,这样隆重壮美,当今世上,配得起这排场的,又有几人?

Last year, it was the 20th anniversary of her music career.  With her unique voice and style, she has already issued more than 30 albums, and has played in more than 50 movies (45?).  As early as 1987, she held 28 shows for  her concert at HK Coliseum.  She broke  the world record of one singer singing for so many shows at the same venue.  As a female artist, it is a miracle for such a record.  But at that time, it was also a miracle that she shared the same popularity with the heavenly kings,   Alan Tam and Leslie Cheung.  It is said that the 8 shows of this time is the farewell concert of Anita Mui.  If it is true, we accept she puts a full stop to her career in such a form.  So grand, so glamorous and so beautiful, in this world, who else deserves such a cast?


在网络论坛上,很多人都在讨论关于阿梅的事情,有一位网友贴出了“GOD BLESS ANITA”的贴子。是的,天佑阿梅,希望她身体健康,不管以后唱不唱,她已经功德圆满。(崔恕)

At some forums of websites, many people are discussing about her.  One web browser started a topic "God Bless Anita".  Exactly, God bless Anita.  Wish her good health.  No matter she will sing in future or not.  She has achieved great success.
