”憂鬱なんだよ、今年も春が来たから”

って曲です。
なんて美しく切なく春を歌った曲なんだろう。
意外と春の曲で「最大にハッピー!」な歌詞って少ないと思う。
"三寒四温"ってよく言ったもので、そんなじわじわ感が得に日本人の心に沁みる。
春が突然来ちゃうと、心の準備ができていない人もいっぱいいるはず。
・・・だけど、もうすぐ4月だよ。

今年、この曲をレパートリーに入れてライブで歌おうと思ってたんだけど、叶わずだったんで、来年以降にまた。
心の中で歌っておくとします。

Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most
(1955)
lyrics by Fran Landesman / music by Tommy Wolf

私の知る限り、この曲を録音していて一番好きなシンガーは以前ブログでも紹介したIrene Kralだけど、Youtubeにはないので、他の好きなバージョンをチョイス。

Jane Monheit (Vo)

Betty Carter (Vo) ブリッジのメロディーを随分と変えちゃってますが、素晴らしいの一言に尽きる演奏。


Once I was a sentimental thing;
threw my heart away each spring.
Now a spring romance
hasn't got a chance.
Promised my first dance to winter.
All I've got to show's a splinter
for my little fling.

Spring this year has got me feeling
like a horse that never left the post.
I lie in my room
staring up at the ceiling.
Spring can really hang you up the most.

Morning's kiss wakes trees and flowers,
and to them I'd like to drink a toast.
But I walk in the park
just to kill the lonely hours.
Spring can really hang you up the most.

All afternoon the birds twitter-twitt.
I know the tune. This is love, this is it.
Heard it before
and I know the score.
And I've decided that spring is a bore.

Love seems sure around the new year.
Now it's April. Love is just a ghost.
Spring arrived on time,
only what became of you, dear?
Spring can really hang you up the most.
Spring can really hang you up the most.

Love came my way. I thought it would last.
We had our day, now it's all in the past.
Spring came along, a season of song,
full of sweet promise
but something went wrong.

Doctors once prescribed a tonic.
Sulfur and molasses was the dose.
Didn't help one bit.
My condition must be chronic.
Spring can really hang you up the most.

All alone, the party is over.
Old man winter was a gracious host.
But when you keep praying
for snow to hide the clover,
spring can really hang you up the most.
