Mid-August Lotus 荷花香

  1. 假若與這一代人提起《銀塘吐艷》這首歌,當然會是摸不著頭,但如果說《荷花香》,可能還能依稀哼出那調子來。《荷花香》是電影《紅菱血》的插曲,看影片,以時人的眼光,是有點兒粗制濫作。芳艷芬手中拿著的當然不是荷花,依傍著男朋友的也不是什麼荷花池。要值得欣賞的都不是這些,而是由唐滌生填寫的曲詞,古詞的風格與功力,實不比宋詞遜色。真不明白,後來歌曲的版本,總是刪掉最後的一節,其實這才是全曲的精髓所在。那種對愛人的期待,又恐遭輕薄、拋棄的心情,現代青年男女又豈能體會得到呢!

  2. 〈荷花香〉原名〈銀塘吐艷〉, 電影《紅菱血》 ( 1951 ) 插曲。

    作曲: 王粵生
    填詞: 唐滌生
    主唱: 芳艷芬

    荷花香 新月上
    荷花愛著素衣裳
    花香引得情蝶浪
    怎禁她芬芳吐艷滿銀塘

    心如明月呀 留天上 
    夜夜塘邊照檀郎
    情味是甜還是苦
    郎情可似柳絲長

    輕輕偎向檀郎問
    你可知情到深時怕斷腸
    花香那得千日艷
    榴花結子便枯黃

    人對花兒輕薄後
    莫待花殘仍可癡嚐
    有情忍看花零落
    花泣飄零淚滿塘

  3. Paradise Gardens Whitman MA
    Paradise Gardens was a shop that sold supplies for outdoor water gardens. There was a beautiful pond with lotus flowers which would bloom each Summer behind the shop. The owners were very welcoming to the public and allowed us to roam around the grounds with our cameras. The property was sold last year.....the shop was torn down, and some very nice townhouses were built (and are still being built at the time of this writing.)

    We were afraid that the water pond/garden would be filled in during the construction, but I'm so happy that the developers left the majority of the pond alone. I went there this week and had a fun time with my camera.

  4. 最後的一段真是無甚記憶。唐滌生先生是粵劇界寫曲詞的泰斗,可惜英年早逝!
    楊太芳姐是我恩公的太太,小時跟母親看過她很多的電影,印象很深刻。但是「紅菱血」要在深夜的電視上,才是第一次看到。
