Họ là 3 anh em có tài đàn, hát. Chính họ đã tạo nên tên tuổi của dòng họ Gibbs. Những đĩa hát của họ luôn được đón nhận bởi hàng triệu fan hâm mộ trên toàn thế giới. Rất nhiều bài hát của họ được đưa vào danh sách Những Bài Ca Bất Hủ.

Rồi, thời gian vô tình trôi qua. Hai người anh lần lượt qua đời, chỉ còn lại một người em hiện nay đang sống trong lẻ loi và đơn độc, ngậm ngùi nhớ lại một thời rực sáng.

MeoMup muốn giới thiệu với các bạn nhóm nhạc THE BEE GEES. Và bài tập luyện phát âm hôm nay là bản nhạc vang danh của thập niên 70s của họ, đó là bài I STARTED A JOKE.




I started a joke,
which started the whole world crying,
but I didn't see that the joke was on me, oh no.

I started to cry,
which started the whole world laughing,
oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.

I looked at the skies,
running my hands over my eyes,
and I fell out of bed,
hurting my head from things that I'd said.

Til I finally died,
which started the whole world living,
oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was on me.

I looked at the skies,
running my hands over my eyes,
and I fell out of bed,
hurting my head from things that I'd said.

'Til I finally died,
which started the whole world living,
oh, if I'd only seen that the joke was one me (x3)

Hãy ôm em đi, suốt đêm nay
Thời gian cũng chẳng còn mấy chốc,
Đêm qua nhanh, bình minh sắp rạng,
Hãy ôm em đi, người yêu ơi!

Thưa các bạn, lời lẽ tha thiết trên của một thiếu nữ trong nhạc phẩm HOLD ME FOR A WHILE. Đây cũng là bài luyện tập phát âm của ngày hôm nay của chúng ta.




Hold, hold me for a while
I know this won't last forever
So hold, hold me tonight
Before the morning takes you away

Hold, hold me for a while
I know this won't last forever
So hold, hold me tonight
Before the morning takes you away

What's that sparkle in your eyes?
Is it tears that I see?
Oh tomorrow you are gone
So tomorrow I'm alone
Short moments of time
We have left to share our love

Hold, hold me for a while
I know this won't last forever
So hold, hold me tonight
Before the morning takes you away

We're in eachothers arms
Soon we're miles apart
Can you imagine how I'll miss,
Your touch and your kiss?
Short moments of time
We have left to share our love

Hold, hold me for a while
I know this won't last forever
So hold, hold me tonight
Before the morning takes you away

Hold, hold me now,
From dusk all night to dawn
Save, save me now,
A short moment of time

Hold, hold me for a while
I know this won't last forever
So hold, hold me tonight
Before the morning takes you away

Takes you away

Tối nay, nghe bản nhạc A SONG FOR A STORMY NIGHT của Secret Garden, đọc được vài cảm nhận rất xúc động về bài hát này, mình muốn giới thiệu bài hát để chúng ta cùng luyện tập phát âm.

Anh nói anh sẽ luôn canh chừng và bảo vệ em
Không để em gặp nguy hiểm
Và nếu sự sống từ chối linh hồn em
Thì tình yêu của đôi ta sẽ vượt qua cơn bão





The rain beats hard at my window
While you, so softly do sleep
And you can’t hear the cold wind blow
You are sleeping so deep

Outside its dark, the moon hiding
By starlight only I see
The hosts of the night-time go riding
But you are safe here with me

So, while the world out there is sleeping
And everyone wrapped up so tight
Oh, I am a vigil here keeping
On this stormy night

I promised I always would love you
If skies would be grey or be blue
I whisper the prayer now above you
That there will always be you

Sometimes, we're just like the weather
Changing by day after day
As long as we'll be together
Storms will pass away

I said I would guard and protect you
Keep you free from all harm
And if life should ever reject you
That love would weather each storm

So, while the world out there is sleeping
And everyone wrapped up so tight
Oh, I am a vigil here keeping
On this stormy night

I promised I always would love you
If skies would be grey or be blue
I whisper the prayer now above you
That there will always be you

Soon, I know you'll be waking,
Ask did I sleep - did I write?
And I'll just say I was making
A song... for a stormy night.

Không có cô bé, cậu bé tuổi teen nào không biết bản nhạc PROUD OF YOU qua giọng hát của nữ ca sĩ người Hông Kông: Fiona Fung (Phùng Thuý Hoa).

MeoMup nhớ, cái dạo mà bản nhạc PROUD OF YOU được mở to trong khắp các quán café thì ở trong lớp học, các em học viên cũng bắt MeoMup dạy các em hát bài hát này cho bằng được!

Hôm nay MeoMup không dạy mà chỉ mời các bạn nghe lại bài hát này. Giọng ca trong veo nhưng cách phát âm có đôi lúc giọng Anh, có đôi lúc giọng Mỹ chen lẫn nhau.




Love in your eyes
Sitting silent by my side
Going on Holding hand
Walking through the nights
Hold me up Hold me tight
Lift me up to touch the sky
Teaching me to love with heart
Helping me open my mind
I can fly
I'm proud that I can fly
To give the best of mine
Till the end of the time
Believe me I can fly
I'm proud that I can fly
To give the best of mine
The heaven in the sky

Stars in the sky
Wishing once upon a time
Give me love Make me smile
Till the end of life
Hold me up Hold me tight
Lift me up to touch the sky
Teaching me to love with heart
Helping me open my mind
I can fly
I'm proud that I can fly
To give the best of mine
Till the end of the time
Believe me I can fly
I'm proud that I can fly
To give the best of mine
The heaven in the sky

Can't you believe that you light up my way
No matter how that ease my path
I'll never lose my faith
See me fly
I'm proud to fly up high
Show you the best of mine
Till the end of the time
Believe me I can fly
I'm singing in the sky
Show you the best of mine
The heaven in the sky

Nothing can stop me
Spread my wings so wide

PRACTICE PRONUNCIATION 49

Nói với Laura rằng tôi yêu nàng. Nói với Laura là tôi cần nàng. Nói với Laura nàng đừng khóc vì tình yêu của tôi dành cho nàng sẽ là bất tử.

Ca từ của nhạc Mỹ luôn giản dị và dễ hiểu. Mỗi nhạc phẩm là một câu chuyện tình. Trong phần PRACTICE hôm nay, chúng ta không chỉ luyện phát âm mà còn luyện đọc câu để biết về một câu chuyện tình nổi tiếng qua bài hát TELL LAURA I LOVE HER.




Tommy and Laura were lovers
He wanted to give here everything
Flowers presents and most of all a wedding ring

He saw a sign for a stock car race
A thousand dollar prize it read
He couldn't get Laura on the phone
So to her mother Tommy said

Tell Laura I love her
Tell Laura I need her
Tell Laura I may be late
I've something to do that cannot wait

He drove his car to the racing ground
He was the youngest driver there
The crowd roared as they started to race
Around the truck they drove at a deadly pace

No one knows what happened that day
How his car overturned in flames
But as they pulled him from the twisted wreck
With his dying breath they heard him say

Tell Laura I love her
Tell Laura I need her
Tell Laura not to cry
My love for her will never die

Now in the chapel Laura prays
For her Tommy who passed away
It was just for Laura that he lived and died
Alone in the chapel she can hear him cry

Tell Laura I love her
Tell Laura I need her
Tell Laura not to cry
My love for her will never die

PRACTICE PRONUNCIATION 50

Thưa các bạn, mới ngày nào chúng ta làm quen với nhau mà giờ đây là bài PRACTICE thứ 50. Con số 50 không phải là nhiều. Chỉ mới có 50 bài luyện phát âm tiếng Anh theo giọng Mỹ mà MeoMup đã cố gắng chọn lọc để mang đến cho các bạn, cho diễn đàn.

Các bạn cũng biết MeoMup sắp lên đường. Con người thì ra đi như tấm lòng vẫn gởi lại nơi đây, nơi trang topic PRONUNCIATION của vietditru.com. Tất nhiên cuộc sống rồi sẽ ổn định và rồi MeoMup sẽ có dịp gởi thư về cho các bạn với những yêu thương - như cô gái trong nhạc phẩm FROM SARAH WITH LOVE.

Thân mời tất cả chúng ta cùng luyện tập bài PRACTICE thứ 50 với bài hát mang tên: FROM SARAH WITH LOVE.




[Verse 1:]

For so many years we were friends
And yes I always knew what we could do
But so many tears in the rain
Felt the night you said
That love had come to you
I thought you were not my kind
I thought that I could never feel for you
The passion and love you were feeling
And so you left
For someone new
And now that you're far and away
I'm sending a letter today

[Chorus:]

From Sarah with love
She'd got the lover she is dreaming of
She never found the words to say
But I know that today
She's gonna send her letter to you

From Sarah with love
She took your picture to the stars above
And they told her it is true
She could dare to fall in love with you
So don't make her blue when she writes to you
From Sarah with love

[Verse 2:]

So maybe the chance for romance
Is like a train to catch before it's gone
And I'll keep on waiting and dreaming
You're strong enough
To understand
As long as you're so far away
I'm sending a letter each day

[Chorus]

[Last chorus:]

From Sarah with love
She'd got the lover she is dreaming of
She never found the words to say
But I know that today
She's gonna send her letter to you

From Sarah with love
She's gotta know what you are thinking of
'Cause every little now and then
And again and again
I know her heart cries out for you

From Sarah with love
She'd got the lover she is dreaming of
Never found the words to say, ahh
But today, but today...

From Sarah with love
She took your picture to the stars above
And they told her it is true
She could dare to fall in love with you
So don't make her blue when she writes to you
From Sarah with love

[Coda:]

So don't make me blue when I write to you
From Sarah with love

IT NEVER RAINS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (1973)




Got on a board a west bound seven forty seven
Didn't think before deciding what to do
All that talk of opportunities, TV breaks and movies
Rang true, sure rang true.

Seems it never rain in Southern California
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before
It never rains in California
But girl, don't they warn ya
It pours man it pours.
Out of work, I'm out of my head
Out of self respect I'm out of bread
I'm under loved I'm under fed
I wanna go home
It never rains in California
But girl don't they warn ya, it pours, man it pours.

Will you tell the folks back home I nearly made it
Had offers but don't know which one to take
Please don't tell them how you found me
Don't tell them how you found me give me a break
Give me a break

Seems it never rains in Southern California
Seems I've often heard that kind of talk before
It never rains in California
But girl, don't they warn ya
It pours man it pours

CALIFORNIA DREAMING




All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day

I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L.A
California Dreamin'
On such a winter's day

Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees
And I pretend to pray

You know the preacher likes the cold
He knows I'm gonna stay
California Dreamin'
On such a winter's day

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day

If I didn't tell her
I could leave today
California Dreamin'
On such a winter's day (x3)

HOTEL CALIFORNIA




On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself,
’this could be heaven or this could be hell’
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say...

Welcome to the hotel california
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the hotel california
Any time of year, you can find it here

Her mind is tiffany-twisted, she got the mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the captain,
’please bring me my wine’
He said, ’we haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine’
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say...

Welcome to the hotel california
Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
They livin’ it up at the hotel california
What a nice surprise, bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said ’we are all just prisoners here, of our own device’
And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the feast
The stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
’relax,’ said the night man,
We are programmed to receive.
You can checkout any time you like,
But you can never leave!

I NEED A HERO

Bản nhạc dưới đây là một sound-track trong phim hoạt hình SHREK 2. Shrek là một người khổng lồ da xanh, lãng mạn và dám xả thân cho tình yêu.




Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods
Where’s the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds

Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed
Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need

I need a hero
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero (hero)
I’m holding on for a hero ‘till the morning light (‘till the morning light)
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life (gotta be larger than life)

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There’s someone reaching back for me

Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It’s gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet

I need a hero
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life

I need a hero
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the end of the night

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I could swear there is someone somewhere
Watching me
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
Like a fire in my blood

I need a hero
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero (hero)
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the morning light (‘till the morning light)
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life (gotta be larger than life)

I need a hero
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero (hero)
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the morning light (‘till the morning light)
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life (gotta be larger than life)

I need a hero
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the end of the night

CARELESS WHISPER - nhóm WHAM! 1985




Time can never mend the careless whispers of a good friend.
To the heart and mind ignorance is kind.
There's no comfort in the truth,
pain is all you'll find

I feel so unsure as I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor. As the music dyes,
something in your eyes,
calls to mind the silver screen,
and all it's sad goodbyes.

Chorus:

I'm never gonna dance again,
guilty feet've got no rythm.
Though it's easy to pretend,
i know you're not a fool.
Shoul've done better than to cheat a friend,
and waste the chance that I've been given.
So i'm never gonna dance again,
the way I danced with you........

Time can never mend the careless whispers of a good friend.
To the heart and mind ignorance is kind.
There's no comfort in the truth,
pain is all you'll find

Tonight the music seemed so loud
I wish that we could lose this crowd
Maybe, it's better this way
We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say
We could have been so good together
We could have made this last forever
But now, who's gonna dance with me?
Please stay...

Chorus:

Now that you're gone (now that you're gone),
that you had to leave me alone.......

I WILL FOLLOW HIM - phim Sister Act




I will follow Him, follow Him wherever He may go,
And near Him, I always will be,
For nothing can keep me away, He is my destiny.

I will follow Him, ever since He touched my heart I knew,
There isn't an ocean too deep,
A mountain so high, it can keep,
Keep me away, away from His love.

I love Him, I love Him, I love Him,
And where He goes, I'll follow, I'll follow, I'll follow.

I will follow Him, follow Him wherever He may go,
There isn't an ocean too deep,
A mountain so high, it can keep,
Keep me away...

I will follow Him (follow Him),
Follow Him wherever He may go,
There isn't an ocean too deep,
A mountain so high, it can keep,
Keep me away, away from His love...

I love Him (Oh yes, I love Him)
I'll follow (I'm gonna follow)
True love (He'll always be my true, true love)
Forever (Now until forever)
I love Him, I love Him, I love Him,
And where He goes, I'll follow, I'll follow, I'll follow,
He'll always be my true love, my true love, my true love,
From now until forever, forever, forever...

There isn't an ocean too deep,
A mountain so high, it can keep,
Keep me away, away from His love.

"O mein Papa" is a German song about a beloved clown father, written by Swiss composer Paul Burkhard in 1939.

..............................................................................................


Oh, My Pa-pa
English translation by Eddie Fisher

Oh, my pa-pa, to me he was so wonderful
Oh, my pa-pa, to me he was so good
No one could be, so gentle and so lovable
Oh, my pa-pa, he always understood.

Gone are the days when he could take me on his knee
And with a smile he'd change my tears to laughter


Oh, my pa-pa, so funny, so adorable
Always the clown so funny in his way
Oh, my pa-pa, to me he was so wonderful
Deep in my heart I miss him so today.

Cha tôi năm xưa

Dịch bản K.Thụy

Cha ơi năm xưa, tình đó con đã luôn tìm nương náu
Cha ơi năm nào, tình thương con biết là bao
Không ai hơn đâu, lịch lãm và đáng yêu người đã sống
Cha ơi năm nào, người luôn đoán biết lòng con

Năm xưa nay đâu, nâng niu tấm bé con bên chân người
Cha rung rinh môi, mắt lệ từ con hóa tiếng cười


Cha ơi năm xưa, vui tính cùng với muôn điều yêu dấu
Mang vai anh hề, thành ra vui tính làm sao
Cha ơi năm xưa, tình đó con đã luôn tìm nương náu
Mang trong tim này, niềm nhung nhớ sẽ dài lâu
