【鲜菇杂谈】2月口语新题解析-你手机里曾经单曲循环的那首歌还在吗?

2021-02-07 环球教育

 一直都在

不只一首


比如,SamSmith的那首“I’m not the only one”,这支讲述背叛和愤怒的悲情歌曲,经过Sam的动情演绎,更让人有种怅然若失之感。

“When you call me baby, I know I‘m not the only one.” (当你叫我宝贝的时候,我知道我并不是你的唯一。)这一句其实还不是最惹到我的。第一句才是“You and me we made a vow,for better or for worse.”(你和我,许下誓言,无论好坏,此生不渝。)很明显,后面的故事并没有那么浪漫,而是俗套地演绎了出轨背叛的戏码。


把这首歌的这句歌词选作雅思口语考试的话题素材的确算独树一帜,会激发考官的想象。就算我们不讲自己的故事,也会让人觉得好奇,是否曾经有什么故事发生过。这种好奇心会引起考官对我们答题内容的关注,不失为一个好的选题策略。


这道题目如下,是我们目前2月份依旧在考的一个话题:描述一首诗词或歌曲中的句子。

整个题目最大的难点无非就是最后一问,抒发对这句歌词的感受。如何能做到在不泄露个人隐私的前提下,表达对这句歌词的理解呢?请大家参考我的答题素材。


The line comes from Sam Smith’s song “I’m not the only one”. I heard this song the first time a few years ago when he published his new album. When I heard the first line, I felt so touched because of his sad voice.It reminded me of my previous failed relationships.


“You and me we made a vow

For better or for worse

I can’t believe you let me down

But the proof is in the way it hurts”


It became my single circle for a few days. I buried myself in the sad emotion and didn’t want to come out of it. I guess many people have similar experience,to be betrayed, to be broken up, to have to leave an awful relationship and return to single. It’s the painful reality that we have to face. The last thing we could do is to pretend nothing happened.


Actually, I don’t have the exact same experience as what is singing in the song. I don’t know why it touches me so much. Maybe because I have never been in a marriage and I am quite pessimistic about marriage. I always believe that people would cheat, that men would cheat and it’s in their blood to cheat. “You and me we made a vow”, but I know that I am not the only one no matter how hard you try to hide. That’s horrible, isn’t it? I could totally understand why so many people choose not to be married. It’s better to stay single than to bemarried and then to be cheated.


Of course, a lot of songs are like this, telling people how ridiculous love could be. Inspite of this, I still look forward to love and romance. I don’t expect to be with someone forever any more. As long as two peopletruly love each other in their relationship, it would be enough. It’s more important to love ourselves than to love anyone else.


最后,建议大家选取歌词的时候最好是从英文歌曲中来选,这样我们就不必费力去翻译了,不然的话,中文歌词你说了考官也听不懂,而你的翻译版本也不一定让考官听得懂。


既然如此,何不直接选取英文歌呢?如果大家平时不爱听英文歌,正好借此机会培养培养兴趣。好听的歌还是很多的啦!
