美剧《欢乐合唱团》 最后一支舞

'Glee' takes its last dance
《欢乐合唱团》的最后一舞

【原滋原味双语阅读】

Whether you’re ready or not, it’s time to say farewell to McKinley High School.
不管你是否做好了准备,你都要和麦金莱高中说再见了。

Fox’s musical comedy “Glee” aired its emotional series finale on March 20. The episode begins with a flashback to the very beginning when the original members of New Directions joined the glee club, and then things look forward to the future, offering a glimpse at how some of the main characters’ lives have progressed.
3月20日,福克斯电视台的音乐喜剧《欢乐合唱团》播出了感人的大结局。最后一集既回顾了最初的时光,那时“新方向”乐队的成员们才刚刚加入欢乐合唱团;同时也展望了遥远的未来,让我们得以一瞥几位主要成员今后的人生历程。

The show first caught my attention because it reminded me of “Slam Dunk”, an animated childhood favorite about basketball.Both revolve around a group of teenagers who experience various difficulties but gradually, through music in the case of “Glee” and sport in the case of “Slam Dunk”, find strength and acceptance.
这部剧最初引起我的注意,是因为它让我想起了一部关于篮球的动画片——《灌篮高手》——那是我儿时的最爱。《欢乐合唱团》与《灌篮高手》都围绕一群青少年展开。他们在历经了各种困难之后逐渐成长,在音乐(《欢乐合唱团》)与运动(《灌篮高手》)中变得坚强、获得认可。

In “Glee”, ambitious teacher Will Schuester wants to rejuvenate the school chorus, however every member of the team is kind of eccentric. Finn Hudson is a quarterback whose friends mock him for putting singing before sports. Rachel Berry, the highly confident lead, desperately wants fame. Mercedes Jones struggles with weight problems. Artie Abrams, a wheelchair bound guitar player, always feels less than a part of the group because of his disability.
《欢乐合唱团》里,老师威尔•舒斯特雄心勃勃,一心想要重振学校的乐团,却招来了一群“怪咖”队员:费恩•哈德森是(橄榄球队中的)四分卫,朋友们常嘲笑他把唱歌看的比打球还重要;瑞秋•贝利是自信心爆棚的女主唱,却对名誉有着超乎寻常的渴望;梅塞迪斯•琼斯则一直在和自己的体重“斗智斗勇”;亚迪•艾布拉姆斯是个轮椅上的吉他手,却总觉得自己身有残疾在乐队缺少存在感。

Through the maturation of these characters, the show imparts its central message: Be your own person, no matter what others think.
通过展现角色人物们的成长历程,这部剧传达了这样一种核心思想:不管别人怎么想,做你自己就好。

The biggest secret to the Emmy Award-winning show’s success, beyond all doubt, is its music. For music lovers, just by watching “Glee”, you can keep up with the latest trends in pop music. The show covers hit songs from popular artists, featuring superstars including Adam Lambert and Britney Spears as guest performers. It also pays tribute to classic musicians such as The Beatles and Billy Joel. Music from “Glee” began sweeping pop music charts shortly after its debut in 2009. In 2010, the “Glee” soundtrack hit No 1 on a Billboard chart.
《欢乐合唱团》在艾美奖上大获成功,音乐毋庸置疑正是它最大的秘密武器。对于音乐爱好者而言,只要追剧,你就能跟上最新的流行音乐潮流。剧中不仅有流行艺人的当红歌曲,还有超级巨星前来助阵,比如亚当•兰伯特,布兰妮•斯皮尔斯都曾在其中客串;剧中还有一些音乐则是向经典音乐人(乐队)致敬,比如甲壳虫乐队、比利•乔。2009年,《欢乐合唱团》一开播,其中的音乐便横扫流行音乐各大榜单。2010年,《欢乐合唱团》原声带跃居美国公告牌榜首位。

Each episode of the series has a theme and a corresponding song carries that theme. For example, when Hudson’s girlfriend Quinn Fabray, who is pregnant, begins to consider keeping her baby instead of giving it up for adoption, she sings the Madonna song “Papa Don’t Preach”. The song’s chorus includes the lines: “I made up my mind, I’m keeping my baby.” Look up the song lyrics online to help you understand the connection better.
这部剧每集都有一个主题,并有主题音乐与之相应。例如,哈德森的女朋友奎恩•法布蕾怀孕后,当她打算生下孩子时,她唱了麦当娜的“Papa Don’t Preach”。这首歌副歌的歌词正是:“我主意已定,我要留下我的孩子。”上网查查歌词,你定能更好地理解剧情与歌曲之间的关联。

With great music and choreography, tear-jerking moments, and fantastic guest stars - Glee has all the charm of a great musical drama. There have been complaints about its unusual character development and plot twists, but these criticisms will soon fizzle out as the show’s music and memory stretch into the future.
出色的音乐与舞蹈编排、催人泪下的瞬间、绝妙的明星客串,这些魅力元素都让《欢乐合唱团》成为一部伟大的音乐剧。,该剧离奇的人物发展和情节变化曾招致批评,但随着情节的不断推进,加之剧中优秀的音乐,这些批评的声音终将很快消失.
