「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

花兒都往那裡去了?

花兒都往那裡去了?




巴爾幹半島,又因為『科索沃』單方面宣布獨立,引起東西歐兩個陣營,劍拔弩張,E+話就話從外交層面解決。 這個世界『火藥庫』,就是引發 『第一次世界大戰』,首先響起第一槍的地方!


一九九二年,前 南斯拉夫聯邦解體,各小國要求獨立,最記得有 波斯尼亞薩拉熱窩圍城一役。跟着,九年前 科索沃地區又起爭議,美軍打着北約和聯合國旗號,狂轟猛炸,塞爾維亞~貝爾格萊德,連中國大使館也被炸中,記憶猶新,最後逼使 塞爾維亞,讓 科索沃交由美軍為首的聯合國托管,兩次都避過大熱戰。今次第三次,再去試試雙方的忍耐力,若果一不小心,擦槍走火,咁又真的打起熱戰上嚟,就冤枉嘞,仲殃及池魚!


上個世紀五六十年代,美國為了竭止,由當年『蘇維埃聯邦 U.S.S.R.』支持的『共產主義』~『英特納雄奈爾 Internationale』,參加了抗共『韓戰』和『越戰』,國內國外很多反戰聲音。歌唱界創作很多反戰的樂曲,其中一首 ”Where have all the flowers Gone?"


而我認識這首歌是已經很多年之後,我買到一隻『Brothers Four』的 CD, 其中有一首歌就是『Where have all the Flowers gone? 花兒都往那裡去了?』。 四位兄弟的和音出色,很精彩悅耳演唱,利用立體聲影響收聽,尤其賞心,但最好的效果,我覺得是用 I-pod聽。可惜我在 youtube 上找不到, 只有這個 試聽版本,請欣賞一吓。 而需要一提歌曲原創作曲作辭,是歌手 Pete Seeger .


至于其他歌手的演出,聽得最多的應該是,Joan Baez 的版本罷,Joan 是位出名反戰的 Civil Rights 女歌手。






不是最佳版本是在集會上的錄影, 請聽聽她的一番話和演唱

較佳的演唱版本





Where have all the flowers gone? music lyrics by Pete Seeger

Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the flowers gone?
Girls have picked them every one


When will they ever learn?
When will they ever learn?


Where have all the young girls gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the young girls gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the young girls gone?
Taken husbands every one


When will they ever learn?
When will they ever learn?


Where have all the young men gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the young men gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the young men gone?
Gone for soldiers every one


When will they ever learn?
When will they ever learn?


Where have all the soldiers gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the soldiers gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the soldiers gone?
Gone to graveyards every one


When will they ever learn?
When will they ever learn?


Where have all the graveyards gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the graveyards gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the graveyards gone?
Covered with flowers every one


When will we ever learn?
When will we ever learn?



還有較多香港人認識的 Peter, Paul and Mary,有下面他們的 youtube 版本,請欣賞!





而原創歌手 Pete Seeger,他有一個版本在Youtube,本是頗佳的演繹,可惜是黑黑的黑白片,可以聽聽罷! 還有可惜他似乎很激動,到了尾段,還沒有唱完,反而開始發表演說。

Music lyrics and sang by Pete Seeger



Oh! When will they ever Learn?

好大感觸喎!
有點六十時代反戰味道!

『反戰』當然!



就算運動項目中的『拳擊』、 『自由搏擊』、
『摔角』等類似,美其名為運動,
實則『賣弄血腥』都『反對』架!

Hi Space:

On July 9, 2008, I attended in Ottawa a performance by 89 yrs old Pete Seeger and his grandson Tao. Of course, they and the audience had a sing-along of WHATFG for old time's sake.

Joan Baez, Peter Paul and Mary, as well as Pete Seeger are all on my list of favourite singers.

And, thank you for this nice walk down memory lane.
