That’s What Friends Are For

這首經典歌曲不知道大家還記不記得

當初由Dionne Warwick 與 Elton John, Gladys Knight 還有 Stevie Wonde 一起演出的這首歌曲

真是大師交鋒,相當精彩,而且膾炙人口,意義深遠

套句現在的用語

「阿不然,朋友是幹什麼的呢? 」

歌詞

That’s What Friends Are For

And i never thought i’d feel this way,
And as far as i’m concerned,
I’m glad i got a chance to say,
That i do believe i love you!

And if i should ever go away,
Well then close your eyes and try,
To feel the way we do today!
And then if you can remember . . .

Keep smiling!
Keep shining!
Knowing you can always count on me,
For sure!
And that’s what friends are for!

For good times!
And bad times!
I’ll be on your side forever more!
That’s what friends are for!

And so, by the way, i thank you and then,
For the times when we’re apart,
Well then close your eyes and know,
These words are comin’ from my heart!
And then if you can remember . . .

Keep smiling!
Keep shining!
Knowing you can always count on me,
For sure!
And that’s what friends are for!

In good times!
And bad times!
I’ll be on your side forever more!
That’s what friends are for!

接著下面這段影片

則是另外一個演唱會中,由Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross詮釋的版本

可以聽到Luther Vandross與Whitney Houston的演出又是另外一種風味

然而看到這時期的Whitney Houston,真是讓人不禁感慨又懷念啊
