Christopher Cross / Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)

上到金石堂翻書,店內音樂是古典吉他演奏改編過的西洋歌曲,輕快好聽,其中兩首特別讓我印象深刻,一是 Phil Collins 唱過的 “You Can’t Hurry Love”,另一首就是這首”Best That You Can Do”。

這個年代的歌曲,簡簡單單,沒有太多花俏的編曲,旋律反而讓我記得清清楚楚,而歌詞中 “If you get caught between the Moon and New York City, The best that you can do, The best that you can do is fall in love”,好有味道。

這首歌是 “二八佳人花公子” 的主題曲,那年代我看的西洋電影仍停留在007的階段,而且我總覺得Liza Minneli不得我的緣,不懂她以傻大姐類型能夠這麼紅,所以,現在也不會想去找這部片子來看,雖然這部片當年可是得了很多獎。

在Youtube找歌曲,Christopher Cross的長相也讓我驚訝,和高8度的歌聲真是搭不起來,像是在喜劇片中,常見的一個埋在沙發裡喝啤酒對著電視裡的球賽叫喊的小角色。

(點連結聽這首歌)

Once in your life you find her
Someone that turns your heart around
And next thing you know you’re closing down the town
Wake up and it’s still with you
Even though you left her way across town
Wondering to yourself, "Hey, what’ve I found?"

When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do ……
The best that you can do is fall in love

Arthur he does as he pleases
All of his life, he’s mastered choice
Deep in his heart, he’s just, he’s just a boy
Living his life one day at a time
And showing himself a really good time
Laughing about the way they want him to be

When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do …..
The best that you can do is fall in love
When you get caught between the Moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the Moon and New York City
The best that you can do …..
The best that you can do is fall in love
