菲尔·柯林斯(全名Philip David Charles Collins)于1951年1月30日生于伦敦西部一个小镇。1981年,柯林斯正式开始个人发展,并推出首张个人专辑“面值”(Face value),很快就成为白金唱片。1984年,柯林斯为电影“冲破禁忌”(Against all odds)创作主题曲,该曲不仅在美国连获三周冠军,而且还获奥斯卡(Oscar)提名。1985年专辑“无需茄克”(No jacket required)推出后,在英获得5周冠军,在美则连夺7周冠军,单曲“再给我一个夜晚”(One more night)也蝉联两周第一名。1989年推出的单曲“天堂里的另一天”(Another day in paradise)在英美迅速夺冠,专辑“郑重其事”(But seriously)在英国连续十多个星期高居榜首。

歌曲说明:有朋友反映这首歌的翻译有问题,说paradise指的是基督教里说的人死后的天堂,another day指上帝的审判,让恶人受苦等,其实不是的。这里不做过多解释, 有一部电影叫做Another Day in Paradise(天堂无路),内容全是讲的少年犯罪等阴暗内容,标题明显是反讽(参考英文影评http://www.reelviews.net/movies/a/another_day.html),和这首歌是异曲同工。

Song: Another Day in Paradise

Artist: Philip Collins

Style: Pop

She calls out to the man on the street,
“Sir, can you help me?
It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,
Is there somewhere you can tell me?”

He walks on, doesn't look back,
He pretends he can't hear her,
Starts to whistle as he crosses the street,
Seems embarrassed to be there.

Oh, think twice,
It's another day for you and me in paradise.
Oh, think twice,
It's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise,
Just think about it.

She calls out to the man on the street,
He can see she's been crying,
She's got blisters on the soles of her feet,
She can't walk, but she's trying.

Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do,
Oh lord, there must be something you can say.

You can tell from the lines on her face,
You can see that she's been there.
Probably been moved on from every place,
Because she didn't fit in there.

Oh, think twice,
It's another day for you and me in paradise.
Oh, think twice,
It's just another day for you,
You and me in paradise,
Just think about it.
