最近整理CD時,找到這張All-4-One於1994年推出的同名專輯,專輯一推出便獲得熱烈的迴響,我非常喜歡他們的和聲與樂曲,所以收藏了這片CD。這個團體除了音樂吸引我的注意之外,4位團員中有一位白人的組合,在當時R&B的團體中,也顯得特別。這張專輯中,我最喜愛的歌曲便是"I Swear"。

 

上述為2008年的演唱會版本,距離原始專輯出版已有14年的時間,演唱技巧與詮釋方式不盡相同,各有不同韻味,只是YouTube收錄的影片不完整,聽到後半段就忽然沒了,甚為可惜。

這首歌的歌詞淺顯易懂,曾獲得許多獎項,如"1995葛來美獎"、"年度最佳歌曲"、"20世紀最偉大情歌之一","Billboard 連續11週最佳歌曲冠軍"等。

 

I Swear by All-4-One (1994 album)

I swear by the moon and the stars in the sky
and I swear like the shadow that's by your side

I see the questions in your eyes
I know what's weighing on your mind
You can be sure I know my part
Cause I stand beside you through the years
You'll only cry those happy tears
And though I make mistakes
I'll never break your heart

Chorus
And I swear by the moon
And the stars in the sky I'll be there
I swear like the shadow that's by your side I'll be there
For better or worse
Till death do us part
I'll love you with every beat of my heart
And I swear

I'll give you every thing I can
I'll build your dreams with these two hands
We'll hang some memories on the wall
And when (and when) just the two of us are there
You won't have to ask if I still care
Cause as the time turns the page
My love won't age at all

And I swear (I swear) by the moon
And the stars in the sky I'll be there (I'll be there)
I swear (and I swear) like the shadow that's by your side
I'll be there (I'll be there)

For better or worse
Till death do us part
I'll love you with every beat of my heart
And I swear

And I swear (I swear) by the moon
And the stars in the sky I'll be there (I'll be there)
I swear (and I swear) like the shadow that's by your side
I'll be there (I'll be there)

For better or worse (better or worse)
Till death do us part I'll love you
With every single beat of my heart
I swear I swear I swear
