Yesterday,
All my troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.
Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be,
There's a shadow hanging over me,
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why she had to go I don't know,
She wouldn't say,
I said something wrong,
Now I long for yesterday.
Yesterday love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Why she had to go I don't know,
She wouldn't say,
I said something wrong,
Now I long for yesterday.
Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh, I believe in yesterday,
Mm....

【参考译文】

【昨天】

昨天,
所有烦恼似乎很遥远。
今天,烦恼仿佛就在眼前,
噢,我信奉昨天。
猛然间我已不再是自己,
一片阴影笼罩着我,
噢,昨天到来得太突然。

我不懂她为何要走,
她也不愿告我说,
或许是我说错,
现在我渴望昨天。
昨天,爱情无忧无虑
今天,我不得不躲闪
噢,我信奉昨天。

我不知她为何要走,
她也不愿告诉我,
或许是我说错,
现在我渴望昨天。
昨天,爱情无忧无虑,
今天,我不得不躲闪,
噢,我信奉昨天。
呣……

【赏析】

《昨天》是甲壳虫乐队演唱的代表作品之一,于1965年9月25日发行这首单曲时就荣登英美两国的排行榜首,并获英国Ivor Novello奖。从1965年至1972年间有大约一千多位歌手演唱或翻唱过这首歌曲,这或许是世界上翻唱次数最多的歌曲。

约翰·列依1940年10月出生于英国的利物浦,16岁时结识了保罗·麦卡特尼并邀请他参加了采石工乐队,1959年更名为银色甲壳虫乐队。他们冲向美国大陆后一直称为甲壳虫乐队,又因他们演唱时弹着吉他、披着长发,故而得到另一称谓——披头士乐队。由于甲壳虫乐队对英美及世界流行音乐做出了不可磨灭的贡献,因而受到世界各国青年的喜爱和崇拜,在他们的音乐生涯中多次荣获各种音乐大奖和英美排行榜的冠军。

此处选辑的《昨天》从曲式结构和节奏特点上采用了较为简单的两段式中的AABA形式,加上最后那个“姆”结尾句,实际上是最后A段结尾的重复演唱,曲式虽简单,但音乐的表现力却很丰富,具有很大的艺术容量。歌中讲述了昨日的爱情给我带来了无比的幸福,而失去了爱的今天是多么令人难以承受。快乐美妙的昨日历历在目,从而使人更加怀念以前。回避无爱的阴影,真好似《昔日恋情》中的某些情景再现眼前,也似《昨日再现》一样,都是昔日神圣幸福的爱的回忆。看来人们对失去的东西会加倍珍惜,爱情更是如此。
