review
[-] by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Forget for a moment that this double-disc, 36-track collection isn't presented in strict chronological order -- it does roughly divide into two parts, with the pre- Innocent Man material largely taking up disc one and the post-Innocent Man selections on disc two (yes, there are some exceptions to the rule, but it generally follows this rule). Forget that there are some singles, radio hits, and fan favorites that should have been included, such as "Pressure," "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant," and "Angry Young Man." Even with these flaws, this Australian-only collection provides the best summary of Billy Joel's best material to date, trumping the original Greatest Hits, Vols. 1 & 2 and edging out the similar 2001 U.S. release, The Essential Billy Joel. The reason for this is that it does include such early highpoints as "You're My Home," "Everybody Loves You Now," and "Streetlife Serenader," while de-emphasizing his last two subpar pop albums, Storm Front and River of Dreams, and just concentrating him at his best as a pop craftsman and recordmaker. Yes, some absent songs should be here, but only a handful shouldn't be here (maybe just "All About Soul (remix)," actually), and it's a highly entertaining listen that certainly spotlights Billy Joel at his best. Maybe not an Ultimate Collection, but pretty damn terrific all the same.

引用
The Ultimate Collection is a double-disc compilation album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel. It was first released by Sony Music Entertainment Japan in December 2000, and subsequently issued in the most of European and Oceanian countries with slightly different track listings (replacing Japanese top-3 charting hit "The Stranger" with live version of "You're My Home").

This career-spanning compilation features some of Joel's early notable compositions and hit singles which were disregarded on his Greatest Hits series, although several fan favorites like "Scenes from an Italian Restaurant" and "Big Shot" were excluded alternatively. It became a smash hit worldwide, entering top-5 on the charts in several countries including United Kingdom.

The Ultimate Collection was not issued in the United States, because Legacy Recordings released another similar compilation The Essential in October 2001.

追求梦想的过程.用甚么方式达成?
面对人生中许多不完美甚至懊悔扼腕的结果.又要以怎样的心态释怀?
或许这就是 人因梦想而伟大,也因梦想而枯萎
Billy Joel 在1993所唱的一首歌曲 The River of Dreams.由 David Kwok 翻译成中文 梦想河 .歌词精湛的表达了整首歌的内涵..让我们有机会且好好的深思这每个人都可能会遇到的课题..


本文作者:david kwok 本文引用自马蹄部落格


每个人都有著梦想 --- 自己的、和他(们)共同的,比作河,从溪流起始,逐渐澎湃,成河渊,但在残酷的人世汪洋中,身不由己的,终被淹没掉。

因为你、因为他(们)从未是个圣者,虽经浴火历炼,带著群山般的信仰,穿越了深谷般的恐惧、丛林般的疑惑、似是而非的理海,但仍难抵终端的圣地,只因你、他(们)‧‧‧灵魂内失去了的‧‧‧某样你或他(们)不曾丢弃的,但却被某人拿走的。

於是在寂籟的黑夜之中,你和他(们)一直在找寻,那只有目盲心净的人才看得见的,直至得到释放、得到解脱,但是否要等到耗尽你和他(们)的餘生?

想到了<庄子>说的一句话"相濡以沫,不如相忘於江湖。" 这句话也真有点意思。

有些人会用相濡以沫来形容互相扶持渡过难关的感情,这个断章取义,尽失庄子思想的原意和境界。精彩是在不如相忘於江湖。

庄子以鱼做比喻,相濡以沫说鱼等到大祸来临(江湖乾涸)时,才互相以唾沫湿润对方,企图渡过生命的难关。隐喻这不是太迟了吗?平常鱼於小小的江湖中,栈恋满意者有之,互相欺侮者有之,你争我夺者有之。所以庄子说不如相忘於江湖,先前彼此在江湖中各自悠游自在时,大家应相忘於暂可逍遥可觅食之江湖,暗示何不相识於更广更深的海洋来得好(庄子於秋水篇有"百川灌河,至於北海,不见水端。"的说法),喻江湖中充满利慾幻象,容易迷失自我。

庄子的江湖和Billy Joel的梦想河是否有异曲同工之妙呢?

兹带著肃敬的心情翻译了【The River of Dreams】成中文的【梦想河】 (部份辞、句採意译法,意思仍忠於原著).



【The River of Dreams】

In the middle of the night 在寂籟的黑夜之中
I go walking in my sleep 我在睡梦中一直漫步
From the mountains of faith 自那群山般的信仰
To a river so deep 走到那河的深渊
I must be looking for something 我一定是在找寻甚么
Something scared I lost 那是我失去了的圣典
But the river is wide 但这河渊是那么的辽阔
And it's too hard to cross 跨渡过去是太不容易

And even though I know the river is wide 就算知道这河渊是那么的辽阔
I walk down every evening and I stand on the shore 仍每个傍晚都走到它的岸边
And try to cross to the opposite side 恒试图跨渡到彼岸
So I can finally find out what I've been looking for 我一直是在找寻甚麽

In the middle of the night 在寂籟的黑夜之中
I go walking in my sleep 我在睡梦中一直漫步
Through the valley of fear 穿越那深谷般的恐惧
To a river so deep 走到那河的深渊
And I've been searching for something 我一定是在找寻甚么
Taken out of my soul 从我灵魂内失去的
Something I would never lose 某样我不曾丢弃的
Something somebody stole 但却被某人拿走的

I don't know why I go walking at night 我不知为何仍在黑夜中漫步
But now I'm tired and I don't want to walk anymore 但我身心已倦我不愿再多走一步
I hope it doesn't take the rest of my life 我祈求不要耗尽我的餘生
Until I find what it is that I've been looking for 才让我找到我要找的那甚么

In the middle of the night 我祈求不要耗尽我的餘生
I go walking in my sleep 才让我找到我要找的那甚么
Through the jungle of doubt 穿越那丛林般的疑惑
To a river so deep 走到那河的深渊
I know I'm searching for something 直至我知道我在找寻甚麽
Something so undefined 那没明确错对的
That it can only be seen 只有目盲心净的人才看得见的
By the eyes of a blind 那盲人的那双眼
In the middle of the night 在寂籟的黑夜之中

I'm not sure about a life after this 我不确知往后的来生
God knows I've never been a spiritual man 天知晓我从未是一个圣者
Baptized by the fire, I wade into the river 经浴火历炼,我再浸沐在梦想河中
That runs to the Promised Land 意为会流向终端的圣地

In the middle of the night 在寂籟的黑夜之中
I go walking in my sleep 我在睡梦中一直漫步
Through the desert of truth 穿越那沙漠般的道理
To a river so deep 走到那河的深渊
We all end in the ocean 直至我们都达到汪洋被淹没
We all start in the streams 其实我们都从溪流起始
We're carried along 我们都曾在那梦想河中
By the river of dreams 身不由己的漂流著
In the middle of the night 在寂籟的黑夜之中

BILLY JOEL 他於1993年告别流行乐檀前的作品 The River of Dreams,单碟全美全年排行第3、所收录的大碟更全美全年排行第1。


Billy Joel gets a lot of song ideas in his dreams, and often struggles to remember them when he wakes up. For this song, however, he woke up with the song in his head, but tried NOT to write it. He explained on The Howard Stern Show in 2010: "I thought, Who the hell am I to try to pull off this gospel song, so I took a shower to wash this song away. I sang it in the shower and knew I had to do it."

In Joel's dream, he was "walking in his sleep," which inspired that lyric.
Joel has said that the phrase "River of Dreams" is a play on the phrase "Stream of Consciousness."
This is a very spiritual song where Joel, who identifies himself as an atheist, includes some biblical imagery, including the line, "Through the valley of fear," which is a reference to Psalm 23:4 - "Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil." Joel also says that the river is a religious image, as "there's baptizing in a river and you have to cross the river - people are getting dunked in the river and there's rivers of blood."
The cover of the River Of Dreams album was painted by supermodel Christie Brinkley, who was Joel's second wife.
