Susan暑假作文日常杂记(3)--1D演唱组合(追星)

 

1D组合,音乐,和其它(追星)

 Susan著 小哭译

 

现在我真的是喜欢1D。等一下!在你评论我之前,请先读完这篇文章!

 

我以前不听音乐。嗯,你没读错,我以前不听音乐。我不是说当音乐响起时,我就把耳朵捂住,我是说,我以前不下载音乐来听。我以前也从不在图书馆借任何CD歌碟。我对这没兴趣儿。我觉得音乐很无聊。这也意味着人人都知道的歌手和歌星我都一无所知。不管什么时候有人提到贾斯汀.比伯,我都会这样回应“嗯……我想我知道他。他是唱歌的那个家伙吧?他有着一头浅亚麻色的头发,很多女孩子特别喜欢他,是吧?”

 

那是从前

 

现在,我热爱音乐!当然,不是所有的音乐。有些音乐我还是不喜欢,有些音乐我觉得很单调,但是大多数现代歌手的音乐我都听了至少一两遍了。现在我最喜爱的演唱组合是1D。他们超级地棒!他们……我甚至都不知道怎么描述他们好了。他们的声音犹如天籁之音,甚至他们的英国口音也非常动听,他们的歌听起来相当地美妙,而且那些歌词也写得非常好……就更不用说他们还是一群帅哥了。但是在我介绍这些之前,我更想谈谈我是怎么开始听音乐的。

 

我想那是在一年前。那时是我第一次意识到那些音乐(现代音乐,我是指青少年听的那些流行乐或摇滚乐)听起来竟然很动听。那次可能是在学校,但也可能是在什么别的活动上,反正我听到了几首贾斯汀.比伯的歌儿。许多人报怨说这些歌让他们的耳朵疼(因为他们真的不喜欢贾斯汀.比伯),而另外的一些人则兴奋地跳起来尖叫(因为他们太爱太爱他了)。我则想,嘿,这歌儿听起来挺不错啊,回家我要再找几首他的歌来听听了。

 

于是,我在YouTube上搜索了他的成名曲“宝贝”,然后我就被彻底地“击倒”了。我听完了这个音乐视频MV,就开始搜索歌词,然后就想……“噢,天哪!”他唱得好极了,特别是在MV中,我可以见到他这个人。我完全惊呆了。他的声音中所蕴含着的那些情感,还有他演唱时的那些表情,加上那些美妙的歌词……感觉我整个人一下子就爱上了他。在这之前我曾经听过的关于他的所有的事情,要么是从我的同学那里听到的,要么是从网上那些古怪的杂志上看到的。他们都在我的头脑里描绘了这样一个偶像歌手的形象——声音听起来象个女孩子似的,而这个人根本就不会唱歌。而当我真的听到他唱的歌时……我震惊了。他根本不是那些批评家所说的那样。他的声音听起来确实很稚嫩,但是并不象是一个女生,只是很稚嫩而已。但也正是那份稚嫩使得他的歌听起来是那么地好听。歌曲的音乐和旋律也非常动听。还有他的长相……噢,上帝呀,这个男孩子竟然可以幸运地拥有这个星球上最漂亮的一张脸(至少,那是我当时的想法)。在我努力地试着阻止自己迷上他时,我却突然间发现自己已经爱上了他。我意识到我真的不应该在没有听过歌曲之前就评论一个歌手。

 

然而,我还是没有突然间变成一个音乐迷。我只是下载了两首他的歌到我的电脑上,就是这些。过了一阵子,我对他的那个感觉就没有了。然后,我查看了另一个流行歌手泰勒.斯威福特。那会儿我听了她的绝大部分著名的歌曲,比如“你属于我”,并且觉得她唱得也不错。“你属于我”这首歌我听了无数遍,然后她就也成了过去时。我便又恢复了以前那种 “我不听音乐”的状态了。

 

我不听音乐、或说不想听音乐一段时间后,有一天妈妈从图书馆借了一张音乐CD碟回来。那是贾斯汀.比博的“我的世界”专辑。猜猜接着发生了什么?我又沉迷于他的声音里了。我下载了他的许多歌曲到我的电脑里,整天整天地听着他的歌。但我从来没有想过要去搜索任何有关贾斯汀.比伯的个人信息。我只是听他的歌儿,非常地喜欢那些歌,我当时就做了这些。所以,我应该不算是他的一个狂热的粉丝。我只是非常地喜欢听他的歌,仅此而已。

 

后来,当我听够了他所有的歌以后,我就又不再听音乐了。我觉得音乐听起来是很好,但是我始终无法理解为什么一些女孩会完完全全地爱上一个歌手。我也有一点对贾斯汀.比伯的爱慕,但是我很快地就从那种状态中走了出来。我始终不明白一些人为什么愿意那么费劲儿地查找他们所能找到的关于一个名人的信息。那实在是太奇怪了。但是后来……

 

1D组合来了。是的,1D。我的新迷恋对象。他们使我一下子就完全地明白了那些无数的女生粉丝有着怎么样的感觉。我将从头开始经历这样的过程。早在我开始听贾斯汀.比伯的歌之前,我就听说过1D。我没怎么留意他们。我想他们也不过就是一个男孩演唱组合而已。我根本没有把他们跟普通人联系起来。我根本就没有想过他们跟我有什么关系,因为我不知道他们的任何事儿,我也不想知道。但是后来……

 

在学校里,我们的老师放了一首1D的歌,是他们最出名的那首歌——“是什么让你如此美丽”。那时我还不知道那是1D的歌儿,我想,哇!这歌听起来真好听!确实很动听,嗓音也很不错。所以回家后我上网搜索了一下,然后就意识到……噢,这是1D的歌。可能,像贾斯汀.比伯一样,他们并不像那些评论家所说的那么差。就像我迷上“宝贝”和“你属于我”一样,我迷上了这首特别的歌——“是什么让你如此美丽”。没不久,我听够了。

 

我不确定是从什么时候开始的,但是我突然间决定再去听几首1D组合的歌。我挺喜欢他们的,最后我变得对他们很感兴趣,远比对贾斯汀.比伯和泰勒.斯威福特感兴趣。我想可能是因为他们看起来比其它的歌手更……成熟吧。我不确定是什么原因,但是他们确实看起来不太一样。成熟一些,更大一些,也更……真实一些。他们不像是名人,更像是五个朋友,他们只是碰巧看起来很火并且能唱歌而已。可能因为事实上他们不是一个人,而是五个人,所以我能看到他们之间是怎么相互影响的。我能从他们的眼睛里和那些MV中看到他们活泼的天性。所以……我对他们的背景做了一些研究。

 

我越是了解他们的过去,对我而言他们就越显得真实而亲切。我越是不停地观看他们的照片,就越觉得他们这五个男生离我那么地近。他们就像是一家人一样。他们自己甚至都这么说,他们亲密像是兄弟。我觉得我好像已经了解他们了。然后我觉得我越是了解他们,我就越是他们的粉丝。

 

我看他们音乐会的那些视频,他们把我的心都融化了。不管MV看起来怎么地专业,与音乐会相比那简直什么都不是。那些音乐会的视频……我不知道怎么描述好。我猜测他们在音乐会上看起来真的很平常,并非……富有魅力。他们只是穿着牛仔裤和T恤衫,他们的表情绝对地自然。他们甚至有时为了好玩而篡改歌词,而这则让所有的粉丝都很疯狂。我能够看到他们玩得很尽兴。当他们唱歌的时候,他们会到非常靠近舞台边缘的地方对着听众唱,他们为听众而唱。我看到有人在一个描述1D的文章中写道:“对于通常的乐队,你必须得让听众远离舞台;而对于1D,你们必须得让歌手呆在舞台上!”确实如此!

 

所以现在,我彻底地迷恋上他们了……嗯,是单恋,不是相恋,这个“恋”字是一个很大的词儿。可我现在还没有见到过他们呢,这更像是一场暗恋……等等,不,也不是暗恋。暗恋太肤浅和太女孩子气了。我非常地喜欢他们的歌。我也非常地喜欢他们做为普通人的一面。但是我没有和他们相恋,我也没有暗恋上他们中的任何一个人。我喜欢他们做为普通人的一面和名人的一面一样多,如果他们中有人问我是否会跟他们出去玩或者结婚什么的,我根本就不会说同意。我是……对他们感兴趣儿,我想去了解他们。但这不是相恋,也不是暗恋,或者什么类似的简单的爱情故事。我喜欢他们像普通人的一面,并且我愿意对他们有更多的了解。我崇拜他们,就那些。如果曾经有机会成为他们的朋友(我没有),我肯定会愿意的。但是来点浪漫的爱情故事?不。我是很严肃地,我还不认识他们呢。

 

令人失望的事情是,他们甚至都不知道我的存在,并且即使我遇到他们,我也不过是又一个女生粉丝而已。然而,现在我已经从这种失望的感觉中走出来了。我知道即使他们从未遇见过我,甚至不知道我的存在,他们也是爱我的。我知道他们还是在乎我的,因为他们在乎所有的粉丝。从他们的采访中、视频中、还有推持贴文中 ,我知道1D真的“在乎”他们的粉丝,他们真的感谢粉丝们使他们所做的一切成为可能。不像给别的名人当粉丝,我觉得给1D当粉丝真的很开心,因为我知道对于他们来说,我很重要。而对于其它的歌手,我感觉不到这一点。

 

我的结论是,我非常地满足于远远地观看他们的表演和欣赏他们的音乐,以及将我对他们音乐的喜爱传播出去。我理解一些人不喜欢他们这种音乐,但是那些人不应该说1D他们令人讨厌,或者说他们不会唱歌,或者说他们不过是五个啥也不知道的偶像男孩而已。那些批评他们的人可以说1D的音乐不是他们喜欢的类型,所以他们不喜欢听,但是他们不应该说1D的音乐是垃圾。那是对1D的粉丝以及1D组合的冒犯。如果有人不喜欢1D,我非常地理解,我也希望他们能够理解别人。

 

我也非常不喜欢那些很疯狂的女孩粉丝,她们希望可以和哈里(1D的一个成员)结婚或者亲吻1D组合中的任何一个人。当然,我更愿意面对疯狂的女孩粉丝而不愿面对毫无理由的批评家,但是这些粉丝也确实令人不安,因为他们的行为实在是太愚蠢了(我不是说他们这些人愚蠢,我是说他们的行为很愚蠢)。他们都不认识哈里,甚至从来都没有和他有过一次真正的交谈,他们怎么会想去成为他的(在这儿做个鬼脸)妻子呢?

 

所以,综上所述,我只是想说我真的喜欢1D组合,我也希望你喜欢,但是如果你不喜欢我也理解。还有,我也认识到,人们不应该在品尝、观看、感觉、阅读、聆听或者某一种体验什么事情之前就下结论。我想我自己也还会继续做出这种在一无所知的情况下就下结论的事儿,不过我会尽量越来越少地做这种事情。好了,那就是我今天想说的了。再见!再见了!去听1D的歌去了!

附:他们的新单曲 ,“最好听的歌儿”,可能并非真的是最好听的歌儿(不要让死忠的1D粉丝听到我这样说),但这首歌儿确实不错!

 

 

 

【小哭介绍背景】我把Susan这个暑假中的关于明星偶像的几篇抽出来摆在一起挨个翻译吧。这样会违背她说的按写作时间排序的安排,但是会方便阅读。她的文章越来越长,翻译所需的时间也越来越多了。

 

她对1D组合的迷恋现在也没有停止,并且还传染给了小宝。我们汽车中的第三张碟就是他们的专辑,第一首歌就是“是什么让你如此美丽”。这歌的歌词我一直也没有用心听过,直到有一天Susan在车里介绍起,我才关注了一下,可是,我还是没有她的感觉呢?本来车里也有张小宝的儿歌碟,可是现在小宝说第三张才是他的最爱,并且最喜欢第一首!! 有的时候我们要听很多遍第一首歌。幸亏我不讨厌这首歌,否则我都会被这首歌逼疯了。

 

我们这次回波士顿,Susan兴奋地告诉我,桑妮和沃兰妮两人也非常地喜欢1D,这非常地超出她的想像。她一直都担忧与这群好朋友分开一年半后,再相见时是否还会如从前一般地亲密。结果他们挤在一起说啊笑啊闹啊,亲密的程度甚至超过了从前,大概和他们找到了新的共同爱好有关系吧!孩子们在一起总得说点啥干点啥,总不能让人家的孩子也来热爱写作吧?所以,我觉得Susan追追星挺好。但是我不喜欢她追过头,影响正常的生活。凭我自己的判断,我春天回国那阵子,她追星就追过了头。那会儿她下楼热个早餐,都要把电脑抱到厨房来听歌。因为她手脚特别毛躁、很不稳当,每每都让我们对她的这种行为提出警告,结果也总是招来她的不满和抗议。但塞翁失马,焉知非福?她新的小说能够产生,我想和1D有着很大的关系吧?里面描写的男主角,就是一个五人乐队的大男孩!!

 

前些天她的一个朋友问她可不可以不再谈论1D这个话题,说她简直是沉迷了,可是她竟然不以为然,还问我们有什么看法。Susan爸爸说,如果你现在的话题只有这个了,你自己说那算不算沉迷吧?Susan说不算,因为她并非开口就只讲1D 。可是她还是继续大谈1D是如何地跟别的明星不一样,是如何地在乎他们的粉丝,而不是在乎粉丝给他们带来的钱。她说她能感觉到被“在乎”!!好吧,1D公关成功,Susan已经“中毒”不浅了。

 

 

 

那时我已经读过她的这篇文章,我知道她的喜欢并没有让她丧失理智,至少她说她在没有和他们交谈过之前,是不可能和他们一起出去玩的,还认为那些想嫁给哈里的女孩子就算人不愚蠢,行为也是愚蠢的:)还有,她喜欢1D的一个原因不是偶像们高高在上的酷样儿,恰恰相反,是偶像们如常人般的亲和力,还有偶像们相互之间的融洽关系。加上我还知道她已经开始去迷另一个歌手及其所在的组合了,所以,在我眼里,Susan追星的行为还在正常范围内,做家长的就静观其变吧。

 

 

 

附上英文原文:

 

One Direction, Music, and other things

 

I really, really like One Direction right now. Wait! Before you judge me, finish reading this!

 

I use to not listen to music. Yup, you read that right, I use to not listen to music. I don’t mean I plug my ears whenever music plays, I mean, I use to not downloaded music just to listen to it. I use to never checked out any CD’s from the library. I wasn’t interested. I thought, music is boring. That meant a lot of the famous singers or pop stars everyone listened to I have no idea about. Whenever someone mentioned Justin Bieber, I would be like “Hm…I think I know him. Is he that guy that sings? That guy with the blondish-brown hair that girls like a lot?”

 

That was before.

 

Now, I love music! Well, not all music, there’s still some music that I don’t really like or find really boring, but most of the modern singers I’ve listened to to at least once or twice. The band of singers that I’m really into right now is One Direction. They are amazing! They’re…I don’t even know how to describe them. Their voices are heavenly, their accents are awesome, their songs sound amazing, their lyrics are meaningful….not to mention they themselves are pretty awesome people too. But before I get into that, I want to talk more about how I started listening to music.

 

I think it was about a year ago. That was when I first realized that music (modern music, I mean, like teen pop or rock) actually sounds really catchy. It was at school, maybe, or at some other event. There, I heard a few of Justin Bieber’s songs, and while a lot of people groaned and complained their ears hurt (because they really hated Justin Bieber) and other jumped and squealed in delight (because they LOOOVED him), I thought, hey, it sounds kind of nice, maybe I’ll listen to a few of his songs at home.

 

So, I searched up his debut single, “Baby”, on YouTube, and I was COMPLETELY SHOCKED. I listened to the music video, searched the lyrics, and realized….OH MY GOSH!!! He sound AMAZING, especially in the music videos, where I could see him, the person. I was completely blown away. The emotions in his voice, his expression while he sang, the amazing lyrics…… I totally feel in love with him right there and then. All I’ve ever heard about him before that was from either my classmates, or from weird magazine articles I saw online. They all painted a picture in my mind of a wanna-be singer who sounds like a girl and can’t sing at all. When I actually listen to him sing…I was shocked. He was nothing like the critics claimed. His voice sounds really young, NOT like a girl. Just young, that’s all. But that’s actually what made it sound so good. The music to the songs and the melody are also really catchy. And his looks…oh my gosh, that boy’s blessed with the handsomest face on the planet (at least, that’s what I thought at that time). As much I tried to stop myself, I suddenly fell in love with him. I realized that I really shouldn’t judge a singer without listening to them first.

 

However, I didn’t suddenly turn into a music freak either. I just had about two of his songs downloaded onto my computer, that’s all. After a while, I got over him. And then I checked out another popular singer-Taylor Swift. I listened to her most famous song at that time, “You Belong With Me”, and realized that she’s not bad either. I listened to that song a million times, and after I’d gotten over her, I just kind of retreated back into the “I don’t listen to music” state again.

 

After a while of not listening to music, of not wanting to listen to music, my mom checked out a CD from the library. Justin Bieber’s “My World” album. Guess what happened after that? I got totally addicted to his voice again. I downloaded a lot of his songs onto my computer, and listened to him all day. But I never bothered to research any more about the actual person of Justin Bieber. I just listen to his songs, and liked them a lot, and that’s as far as I went. So, I can’t say I was a devoted fan of him. I just liked his song A LOT that’s all.

 

Later, when all his songs got boring for me, I kind of stopped listening to music again. I realized music sounds good, but I still couldn’t understand why some girls are totally in love with a singer. I had a little celebrity crush on Justin Bieber, but I got over it really fast. I still didn't understand why some people would bother to find out all they can about a celebrity. It’s so weird. But then….

 

1D came along. Yup. One Direction. My new obsession. They are the ones that made me suddenly realized exactly how all those millions and millions of fangirls out there feel. I’ll start from the beginning. I first heard about 1D a while ago, before I started listening to Justin Bieber. I didn’t pay much attention to them. I thought they were just this band of some boys that sings. I didn’t think of them as people. I didn’t really think about them at all, cause I don’t know much about them, and neither did I want to. But then…

 

At my school, our teachers played one of 1D’s songs, their most famous single, “What Makes You Beautiful”. I didn’t know it was One Direction at that time, and I thought, WOW! That song sounds amazing! Really catchy, and the voices sound really good too. So I went home and searched it. And realized…oh. It’s by One Direction. Maybe, like Justin Bieber, they’re not as bad as the critics claim. I got obsessed over that particular song like I did with “Baby” and “You Belong With Me”. Soon, I got over it.

 

I’m not sure how it started, but I suddenly decided to listen to a few more of their songs. I loved them. I finally became interested in them, more interested than Justin Bieber or Taylor Swift.  I think it’s because of the fact that they looked more….mature than the other singers I’ve lsitened to. I’m not sure what it was, but they just looked different. Mature, more grown up. And also more….real. Less like celebrities, and more like five friends who just happen to look really hot and can sing. Maybe because of the fact that it’s five boys, not one, and so I could see how they interacted with eachother. I could see the playfullness in those eyes and in those music videos. So….I did a little bit of background research.

 

The more I found out about them, about their histories, the more real and personal they became. The more pictures I saw, I realized more and more just how close the five boys are. Like family. They even said it themselves, they’re close like brothers. I feel like I already know them. And the more I felt like I knew them, the more of a fan I became.

 

I watched videos of their concerts, and they made my heart melt. No matter how proffesional the music videos look, they’re nothing compared to the concert videos. The concert videos…I don't’ know how to describe them. I guess they just look really normal during their concerts, less…glamourized. They just wore jeans and T-shirts, and their expressions were totally natural. They even change the lyrics sometimes for fun, and it makes all the fans go crazy. I could see that they’re enjoying themselves, and when they sing, the get really close to the edge of the stage and sing to the audience, for the audience. I saw someone write, in an article somewhere about 1D, “With normals bands, you have to keep the audience off the stage. With One Direction, you have to keep them on the stage!” So true!

 

So now, I am totally in love with them…well, no, not in love. Love is a big word, and I’ve never met them. It’s more like a crush…wait, no, that’s not it either. That’s too shallow and girly. I like their songs a lot. I like them as people a lot too. But I’m not “in love” with them, nor do I have “a crush” on them. As much as I like them as people and as celebrities, I would definitely NOT say yes if one of them asked to go out with me or marry me or whatever. I’m….interested in them. I want to get to know them. But it’s not love, or a crush, or whatever simple romantic stuff like that. I like them as people, and I want to get to know them more. I admire them, that’s all. If I ever get the chance to become friends with them (which I won’t), I’ll definitely do it. But romance? No. Seriously, I don’t even know them.

 

The dissapointing thing is, they don’t even know I exist, and even if I meet them, I’ll just be another fangirl. However, I’ve already gotten over that. I know that even though they’ve never met me, and don’t even know I exist, they still love me. I know they still care for me. They care for all their fans. From their interviews, videos, and twitter posts, I can tell that 1D really do care for their fans, and they truly are really grateful and thankful to them for making everything possible for them. Unlike other celebrities, I feel happy being a fan of 1D, because I know that I’m imporatant to them. I don’t feel that with most other singers.

 

My conclusion is, I’m perfectly content to watch and listen to them from afar, and to spread my love of their music to other people. I understand some people don’t like their kind of music, but those people shouldn’t say they (1D) are horrible people, or say they can’t sing, or say they’re just five wanna-be boys who knows nothing. They (those critical peopel) can say 1D’s music isn’t their type, so they don’t want to listen to it, but they shouldn’t say 1D’s music is trash. That’s insulting to 1D fans and the One Direction boys themselves. I totally understand if some people don’t like 1D, I just hope they understand others do.

 

I’m also annoyed at really crazy fangirls that wish they can marry Harry (that’s a member in One Direction) or kiss any of them. Sure, I’d rather deal with crazy fangirls than unreasonable critics, but it gets on my nerves, because their actions are all really stupid (I’m not saying they’re stupid people, just that their actions are stupid). They don’t even know Harry, never had a real conversation with him, how can they want to be his (make a face right here) wife?

 

So, in conclusion, I just want to say I really like One Direction, and I hope you will too, but I’ll understand if you don’t. Also, I realized that people shouldn’t judge something before tasting, seeing, feeling, reading, listening, or in some way experiencing it. I still do that, and I’m trying to do it less and less. Alright, that’s all I’ve got to say for today. Goodbye! Adios! Go listen to One Direction!

PS-Their new single, “Best Song Ever”, might not nessecarily be the best ever (don’t let hardcore Directioners hear me say that), but it’s really good!

小哭,你换头像了?这个比较喜兴,上个有点严肃,我投这张像一票!

你女儿英文表达能力很强,淋漓尽致的抒发自己的感情,这对她的成长会有帮助,不错。

心桥强烈建议我换头像。俺是她的粉丝,哪有不遵命的?晚上从健身房出来,觉得状态不错,天气也好,就请一路人在停车场帮忙捏了一张。回家一看效果还挺好,马上就截一头像出来上传了:)

告心桥 :俺一直在打照Susan朴实厚道的小作家形象呢,目前先不传她的美女照:)等到这个系列结束时再说。

阿朵,Susan的英语俺早就追不上了。现在人家写个小文才一两个小时,就洋洋洒洒两三千字。害得我得花几倍的时间来翻译。我曾经看过一个研究报告讲,阅读和写作的才能,与具体的语言无关,如果你换一种新的语言,只要语言过关,原来的才能就会再次释放:)所以,我觉得从小在国内对她的训练是起到作用了。

真是丰富多彩的暑假日记,欣赏了。

谢谢一弘的欣赏。这才是日记的一个小小角:)后面还有更精彩的!我是不是有点替Susan在吹啊?如果有,绝非本意,是我着实欣赏Susan的作文。对于她本人,我的评价可比对她的作文低得太多太多了。真怕雨林看后又心疼了。

哈哈, Susan妈妈,我真是为你的女儿感到骄傲啊。其实我也知道你已经在用一种很好的方式在扶植和保护她的素质和才华呢。

理解万岁!她以前总是说我不象人家美国妈妈,张嘴闭嘴都是GOOD JOB。可是现在她说她更喜欢听到我评价她,因为她知道,妈妈如果表扬了,那就是真的做好了,妈妈会给她一个最真实的评价:)
