葉蒨文重返金馬舞台 心情彷彿回娘家

記者許世穎/綜合報導

香港天后葉蒨文受邀為本週六(24日)的《第49屆金馬獎頒獎典禮》擔任表演嘉賓,難掩緊張興奮的心情,她表示:「能受邀出席金馬獎感覺非常榮幸,我很開心能回台灣,台灣也是我的家,我很想念台灣。」

葉蒨文睽違樂壇多年,今年先以復出巡迴演唱,讓喜愛她的歌迷可以一飽耳福,又受邀來台參加金馬獎表演,為典禮帶來令人期待的亮點;不過提到她與電影的淵源,葉蒨文也算是個「電影咖」,曾演出過《刀馬旦》、《上海之夜》、《大丈夫日記》等電影。經過主辦單位多方邀請、努力規劃演出內容,終於讓這位天后級的歌手重返金馬舞台。當晚她也精心挑選表演曲目,將演唱四首代有特殊意義的歌曲。

首先第一首「黎明不要來」是電影《倩女幽魂》的主題曲,也是她的成名之作,至今仍是膾炙人口的經典好歌;第二首「被遺忘的時光」、和第三首「新不了情」則分別代表電影《無間道》、《新不了情》,葉蒨文將用歌聲向台下的評審團主席劉德華,及入圍影帝的杜汶澤和劉青雲致意。

她更堅持挑戰蘇芮的代表作「酒矸倘賣無」,這首歌充滿情感的爆發力,是當年虞戡平導演的感人力作《搭錯車》的主題曲,據悉也是她最喜歡的歌曲之一。葉蒨文希望能夠用她獨特的詮釋,讓兩岸三地的觀眾可以一飽耳福,欣賞天后久違的風采!由於曲目中有兩首是她從未演唱過,葉蒨文表示:「最困難的部份就是記詞,我正在努力,希望演出時不會太緊張。」

對於此次在金馬獎典禮演出,葉蒨文也相當慎重,更特別情商近期於香港紅磡體育館表演時的音樂總監趙增熹助陣,她表示:「我們合作很久,兩人很有默契,希望觀眾會喜歡此次音樂的詮釋與編排。」而除了音樂,禮服也花了她許多時間準備。至於典禮當天最期待見到哪位老友?葉蒨文笑說:「想見的人太多了,金馬獎對華人電影工作者非常重要,出席的人一定很多,金馬當天要好好跟朋友們敘舊。」

《第49屆金馬獎頒獎典禮》將於11月24日在宜蘭羅東文化工場隆重舉行,台視將從下午5:30起live播出星光大道和頒獎典禮。香港、澳門、中國大陸、馬來西亞、新加坡等地的海外觀眾亦可同步收看精彩節目內容。

Hong Kong Queen of Pop Sally Yeh was invited to be the performing guest at the 49th Golden Horse Awards Ceremony. Being both excited and nervous, she said, “I'm very honored to be invited to perform at Golden Horse Awards. I'm very excited about being back in Taiwan because it's my home too. I quite miss Taiwan.”  

After being away from the music industry for a few years, earlier this year Sally came back and started her Concert World Tour so her fans can all enjoy her music again. And now Sally is invited to be the performing guest at the Golden Horse Awards Ceremony, which would be highly expected and looked forward to by many. Talking about movies, Sally is a movie enthusiast herself too; she was starred in movies “Peking Opera Blues”, “Shanghai Blues”, “The Diary of a Big Man”, etc. This time, after several attempts of invitation by the Awards and putting in great effort to decide the right songs to sing, finally we got the chance to have Sally on the Golden Horse Stage. On the performing night she would sing four songs that all carry special meanings for her.

The first song she will sing would be “Li Ming Bu Yao Lai” (黎明不要來), the theme song of the movie “A Chinese Ghost Story”. This classic song is one of Sally’s most famous and till today it’s very popular among listeners. The second  song, “Bei Yi Wang De Shi Guang” (被遺忘的時光)  and the third, “Xin Bu Liao Qing” (新不了情) respectively represent the movies “Infernal Affairs” (Wu Jian Dao, 無間道)  and “C'est la vie, mon chéri” (Xin Bu Liao Qing, 新不了情).  Sally would use her songs to pay tribute to Andy Lau, the President of the Judging Panel, and nominated Best Actors Chapman Man-chak To and Sean Lau.
Sally would also sing Julie Su’s famous song “Chew Gang Tang Muey Boh” (酒干倘賣無). This is a song full of explosive emotions and is the theme song of the famous touching movie “Papa, Can You Hear Me Sing?”, directed by Yue Ham Ping. It’s one of Sally’s favorite songs too. The audiences from Taiwan, Hong Kong and China would have the chance to enjoy the Queen of Pop’s unique interpretation and performance of this classic song! Because two of these four songs are ones that she has never performed before, Sally said, “I'm in the process of trying to remember the lyrics. That's the hardest part. And just wish I won't be too nervous when the time comes.”

Sally is doing her best to prepare for the performance at Golden Horse Awards. She especially invited Chiu Tsang Hei to work on the music with her. Chiu also was the Musical Director for her recent concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum. Sally said, “We have worked together for so many years.  We have great chemistry. Our collaboration has been for many years and he has always come through for me.  I hope everyone can enjoy the arrangements. “Besides the music part, she has also spent lots of time to prepare her performing dress. As for which old friends she would be seeing on the show night? Sally smiled and said, “There are so many that I would enjoy meeting that night. Golden Horse is Taiwan's very prestigious Awards Ceremony and all Chinese movie artists respect this important awards show very much. I'm sure there will be many exciting artists to enjoy and chat with that night.”

The 49th Golden Horse Awards ceremony will be held on November 24 in Luodong Cultural Working House, Yilan County and will be broadcast live exclusively on TTV. At present it is confirmed that the ceremony will be broadcast to Hong Kong, Macau, China, Malaysia, Singapore, etc.
