  梅艳芳在上海开演唱会,我想都没有想,就去买了票。

When Anita Mui had her concert in Shanghai, I went to buy the ticket without any hesitation.


  “万体馆”里坐了八九成满,鲜有新新人类,观众多是二十大几三十来岁甚至四十多岁的男男女女。梅姑以金色“鸡冠头”造型出现,一开场便接连演唱好几首快歌,连跳半小时劲舞,让人充分理解开演唱会是高强度体力活儿的道理。

[10 thousand people Stadium] was about 80 to 90% full.  Audience were about 20 to over 40 in age, and  of both sexes.  Mui Koo appeared in dark gold 'cock head' hair style.  She started the concert with a few quick songs, and danced continuously for half an hour, thus let people realize why concert can be an energy taxing thing.


  港台歌星现场演唱会看得多了,有的演唱会就像“商务套餐”,挥挥手、问声好、露一个笑脸、请两个嘉宾、受几束鲜花、换几套行头便是,可是梅姑的演唱会不一样,“百变天后”的称号毫不夸张,百变到家,实至名归。实打实的唱和跳,“招招见血”,时而温婉柔情,时而冰冷铁面,时而大江东去,时而晓风残月,花到“景泰蓝”一般的衣裤、大红礼服、吊带蓝纱长裙、牛仔“乞丐袍”、旗袍式紧身长裙……演出服前前后后换了八套,变幻莫测,看得人眼花缭乱。

I have seen quite a lot concerts of singers from Hong Kong and Taiwan.  Some of those concerts are just like "executive set menu": wave their hands, greeting the audience, showing a smiling face, inviting 2 guest singers, receiving flowers from fans, and changing for a few sets of costumes.  However, Mui Koo's concert is entirely different.  It is not exaggerated to call her [ever changing Pop Queen], she is an expert in changing images.  She really sings and dances, nothing is cheating.  Sometimes she is so soft and tender, but sometimes just so cool.  She can be as river flowing, can be sad as windy and dim moon lit night, colorful as cloisonné.  She had been in bright red cape, blue long skirt, beggars clothes in jeans, dress similar to cheungshan......... altogether she had changed to 8 sets of costumes.  Audience were busy just like watching her fashion show.


  坐在前排的女歌迷激动异常。想想看,为伊痴狂的明星就在眼前,伸手可即,焉有不伸出手去的道理!《女人花》结尾处,梅姑踱步到右侧舞台,便有女歌迷冲到台前,把捧花送到了梅姑手中。梅姑才刚接过花,女歌迷就被保安架了去。歌迷楚楚可怜连连回头,可是保安不为所动,继续架着走。梅姑伸出了手臂,可女歌迷还是被硬生生拖走了。梅姑终于忍不住开口:“先生,请不要这样对待她,好吗?(是一个短促、客气的升调结尾。)我知道你们是想保护我,可是保护我不必对歌迷那么凶的。”几句话赢来了掌声一片。从大屏幕上看去,梅姑眉头紧锁,面露些许愠怒。我的心“咯噔”了一下,不晓得场内气氛会不会有变———这可不是没有前车之鉴,上回刘德华上海演唱会就发生了刘天王亲自指挥恢复秩序而停演二十分钟的“事故”,气氛一度十分紧张。可是转瞬间,只见梅姑的脸往左轻轻一甩,朝台中央一望,就变了表情,噘起嘴一笑——这一笑,紧张的气氛就松弛了下来。果然是歌坛“大姐大”,脑子“拎得清”,晓得如何处理各种场面。

Those female fans sitting in the front got so excited.  Just imagine when they stretched out their hands, they could touch the star they are madly in love, for no reason, they would withhold themselves in doing so.  When almost finished singing [Woman Flower], Mui Koo walked to the right hand side of the stage, one female fan rushed to the stage and presented Mui Koo with flowers.  When Mui Koo just got the flowers, the security guards dragged the female fan away immediately.  The female fan looked so pitiful, even though she kept on turning back her head, the security guards were not moved and kept on dragging her away.  Mui Koo stretched out her arm, but no  use.  She could not help buy saying: [Mr. please don't do this to her, Okay? (short, but polite request.) I know you want to protect me, but you don't have to treat the fans so fiercely in order to protect me.]  She was applauded by the audience.  On the big screen, we could see Mui Koo frowned, looked annoyed.  My heart saddened, worried if the atmosphere of the concer.  I had such worries, because during the concert of Andy Lau in Shanghai, he himself had to keep order, the concert was stopped for 20 minutes.  The atmosphere became very tense.  But just in split of seconds, Mui Koo turned her head lightly, facing the middle of the stage, and changed her expression, she smiled.  This smile just changed the whole atmosphere, from tense to happy one again.  No wonder being called Big Sister, she has a clear mind, and knows how to control and handle all kinds of situation.


  歌星演唱会常常是“异性相吸”规律的实验场,帅哥的演唱会上疯癫的女歌迷比较多,美女的演唱会上疯癫的男歌迷比较多,可是这条规律在梅姑身上好像没有应验,为伊痴狂的多是女歌迷。《女人花》、《似是故人来》、《亲密爱人》、《似水流年》……统统是伊人唱给伊人听,伊人唱出伊人心。大概女生在她的歌里可以勾出太多的心事,感到太多的共鸣。

For normal concerts, due to the theory of opposite sex attracting each other, fans for males singers are usually female, and vice versa.  But this doesn't happen to Mui Koo.  Most of her fanatic fans are female.  [Woman flowers], [Like Old friend coming], [Dear Lover], [Year passes like water]......... all these songs are songs about  female's passion, and are sung for females too.  Maybe her songs can trigger the deeper insight of females, and arouse their feeling of the same kind.


  也许是习惯,梅姑袅袅婷婷也好,闲庭信步也好,总喜欢佝着背。

Maybe this is her habit, when she stands there, or walks, she always likes to hunch her back a little bit.


  “小姑娘家家的,绝对不能佝背啊,否则难看死了!”从小,大人就这样告诫我们。可是人家梅姑佝背偏偏就是佝得那么好看!说不出的大气,舞台仿佛就在她的股掌之间,真是讲不清楚。

[As a little girl, don't hunch your back, or you look so ugly!]  When we were young, adults always warned us not to hunch our back.  But look at Mui Koo, why she can hunch her back but looks so beautiful!  Don't know the reason, she can control the stage so well that it seems she holds it in her hand.


  梅师傅徒儿众多,此番带来了她的新徒弟彭敬慈。小彭同学很帅很会摆酷,单独出场时表现不错,可是最后一轮站到梅师傅边上一衬,就十足成了个小朋友,“嫩到西伯利亚去了”。老实说,听流行歌曲已有十多年历史了,歌星晃过了一茬又一茬,有的转瞬即逝,有的艺坛常青。我时常想,歌星怎样才能永远叫人喜欢呢?在看梅艳芳演唱会的时候,在见她百变飞舞的时候,我突然找到了答案,曰:“与时代同步”。

Mui C-fu has many students.  This time she brought along her new student, Samuel Pang.  Little Pang is very handsome and looks cool.  When he was alone on the stage, he was alright.  But when he was beside Mui C-fu, he was just like a little child, too green.  Frankly speaking, I have listened to pop songs for more than 10 years.  There are so many singers.  Some of them  only last for a little while, while some are evergreen.  I often think, how can a singer make herself/himself to be liked by people forever?  When I watched Anita Mui's concert, when I saw her ever changing images and her dancing, I found the answer : [has to move with time.]


  没错,永远要有新的东西给歌迷,永远要突破自己———梅姑就是这样一个代表,独步天下,所以总让人好生欢喜。

Correct, must always have new things for the fans, always have to breakthrough oneself.  Mui Koo well represents such kind of singers. She is unique, that is why people likes her forever.
