好聽的美國棒球歌曲: Soundtrack: Baseball - a film by Ken Burns

有 一次無意間在Foster City社區的圖書館裡,找到這一張非常好聽的棒球紀錄片原聲帶: Baseball,我還沒機會看過這部PBS的記錄片,但這片Baseball原聲帶已經一在重複的聽了很多次,還是令人懷為無窮。Baseball是一部由知名記 錄片導演-Ken Burns拍攝的棒球記錄片,我準備在這xmas季節裡,找機會來看這部關於美國棒球歷史的電影。

我喜歡這片Baseball記錄片原聲帶,裡面收集了棒球場裡面的聲音、廣播、與各種歌曲,尤其是我喜愛的"Take Me Out To The Ball Game"首棒球國歌的1908年歌詞的演唱(Author: Jack Norworth, 1908)。

Katie Casey was base ball mad.
Had the fever and had it bad;
Just to root for the home town crew,
Ev'ry sou Katie blew.
On a Saturday, he young beau
Called to see if she'd like to go,
To see a show but Miss Kate said,
"No, I'll tell you what you can do."

"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don't care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game."

Katie Casey saw all the games,
Knew the players by their first names;
Told the umpire he was wrong,
All along good and strong.
When the score was just two to two,
Katie Casey knew what to do,
Just to cheer up the boys she knew,
She made the gang sing this song:

"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don't care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, your out,
At the old ball game."

要聽這首歌的優美歌聲演唱,我則推薦Carly Simon演唱得版本。本張CD裡鋼琴演奏的版本也非常悅耳動聽。
