讓我呼喚妳的名

電影《莎翁情史 (Shakespeare in Love)》裡,貴族女子 Viola 成為年輕劇作家莎士比亞的繆思,即將與魏瑟爵士步入禮堂的她熱愛表演,不但女扮男裝到莎士比亞的新戲《羅密歐與海盜之女阿絲》試鏡,兩人在惺惺相惜下迸出愛的火花,最後還粉墨登場扮演茱麗葉,與莎士比亞扮演的羅密歐在劇院舞台上演出一場感人肺腑的愛情悲劇,雖然兩人下了舞台終究得面對互道珍重的殘酷事實,但 Viola 的名字自此便刻畫在莎士比亞的心中,並成為他下部新戲《第十二夜 (Twelfth Night)》的女主角。 當然,《莎翁情史》的劇情並非史實,泰半是出自 Marc Norman 和 Tom Stoppard 兩位傑出編劇的想像力,但 Viola 的確是《第十二夜》的女主角名字。 不過 Viola 這名字讓又你想到什麼?沒錯,就是 2006 年校園喜劇電影《足球尤物 (She's the Man)》裡巧扮孿生哥哥混入足球校隊的女主角 Viola,《足球尤物》其實就是現代版的《第十二夜》,電影裡的主角名字 Viola、Sebastian、Olivia、Duke 以及男女身分混淆的劇情都和莎翁喜劇《第十二夜》如出一轍。 誠如莎士比亞在《羅密歐與茱麗葉》劇本裡假茱麗葉之口說出的至理名言:「名字算什麼?玫瑰即使不叫玫瑰,不也依舊聞來芬芳」,名字的確不能代表什麼,但您不能否認,某些名字就是特別帶有詩意,並經常成為文學、電影與詩歌裡嘆詠的對象。 拿西洋流行歌壇來說,以女子名字為歌名的歌曲多不勝數,其中單單是披頭四合唱團 (The Beatles) 便曾用過 Anna、Carol、Clarabella、Eleanor、Kate、Julia、Madonna、Rita、Lucille、Maggie、Michelle、Prudence、Sadie、Sheila 等名字來寫歌,而成立於加州的 Toto 合唱團也曾以 Angela、Anna、Carmen、Holyanna、Lea、Lorraine、Melanie、Pamela、Rosanna 等名字作為曲名,算是兩支偏愛對著女子傾訴衷曲的樂團。 以下是一些歌名涵蓋女子名字的著名歌曲,許多歌曲背後還有著動人的故事,這篇文章有點長,如果您有時間,不妨慢慢看下去,聽聽看您的英文名字唱起來有多麼響亮。 "Abbey of Thelema" by Gillan "Absolutely Sweet Marie" by Bob Dylan "Alberta" by Eric Clapton "Alison" by Elvis Costello (also by Linda Ronstadt) "Angelina" by Bob Dylan "All the Girls Love Alice" by Elton John "All the Young Girls Love Alice" by Elton John "Amanda" by Boston,重搖滾團體 Boston 唯一的一首冠軍單曲,但卻是一首抒情情歌。 "Angie" by the Rolling Stones,Rolling Stones 於1973 年榮登全美流行榜冠軍的抒情單曲,外界一直對 Angie 所指何人穿鑿附會,但至今仍無人能夠加以證實。 "Angie Baby" by Alan O'Day,這首歌後來被女歌手 Helen Reddy 唱紅。 "Angie Girl" by Stevie

by the Beach Boys "Beth" by KISS,最背離 KISS 風格的一首抒情歌,卻成為這支重金屬樂團賣座最佳的單曲。 "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson,面對一群跳出來指控懷有你孩子的瘋狂女樂迷,如日中天的 Michael Jackson 決定以這首歌反擊,1983 年間 "Billie Jean" 成為橫掃全球年輕樂迷的冠軍單曲,當時還是巧克力色的 Michael Jackson 真叫人懷念。 "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" by Looking Glass "Candida" by Tony Orlando & Dawn "Candy" by Iggy Pop featuring Kate Pierson "Carol" by Chuck Berry (also

O'Sullivan,這是 Gilbert O'Sullivan 寫給經理兼製作人 Gordon Mills (1935-1986) 三歲小女兒 Clair 的動人歌曲,1972 年間成為英國流行榜冠軍單曲。 名音樂製作人 Gordon Mills 一手發掘並打造了 Gilbert O'Sullivan,但兩人最後卻為了合約與版稅對簿公堂,Mills 敗訴後必須補償 O'Sullivan 巨額損失,他的財富與婚姻於一夕之間瓦解,從此抑鬱消沉,直到罹患胃癌過世,只剩下 "Clair" 歌曲末端小女孩純真的笑聲記錄了往日的美好情誼(參考錄音間版本)。 "Clementine" by Mark Owen "C'mon Marianne" by the Four Seasons "C'mon Marianne" by Donny Osmond "Come On Eileen" by

Band,這是這支超級搖滾樂團知名的演奏曲之一,由於樂團早期經常在喬治亞州一處墓園練唱,團員 Dickey Betts 從墓碑上發現了 Elizabeth Reed 這個名字後,便以 Reed 女士的名字為靈感,創作出這首演奏曲。 "Isobel" by Björk "Izabella" by Jimi Hendrix "Jack and Diane" by John Cougar

Tom Hamilton 合寫,敘述一樁少女舉槍弒父的天倫悲劇,背後卻隱藏著女孩遭受父親性侵的不堪過去。 "Jeanie" by the Sweet "Jennie Lee" by Jan & Dean "Jennifer Juniper" by Donovan "Jenny" by Tommy Tutone "Jenny From the Block" by Jennifer Lopez
