A cultural production, a quasi–ethnography research, and a translation

Jacky Cheung: She listens to my concert (1999)

bq._(歌曲:她来听我的演唱会
歌手:张学友 专辑:走过1999)_

*她来听我的演唱会*
在十七岁的初恋第一次约会
男孩为了她彻夜排队
半年的积畜买了门票一对
我唱得她心醉我唱得她心碎
三年的感情一封信就要收回
她记得月台汽笛声声在催
播我的歌陪着人们流泪
嘿陪人们流泪
她来听我的演唱会
在二十五岁恋爱是风光明媚
男朋友背着她送人玫瑰
她不听电话夜夜听歌不睡
我唱得她心醉
我唱得她心碎
成年人分手后都像无所谓
和朋友一起买醉卡拉ok
唱我的歌陪着画面流泪
嘿陪着流眼泪.
我唱得她心醉
我唱得她心碎
在三十三岁真爱那么珍贵
年轻的女孩求她让一让位
让男人决定跟谁远走高飞
嘿谁在远走高飞
我唱得她心醉
我唱得她心碎
她努力不让自己看来很累
岁月在听我
们唱无怨无悔
在掌声里唱到自己流泪
嘿唱到自己流泪
她来听我的演唱会
在四十岁后听歌的女人很美
小孩在问她为什么流泪
身边的男人早已渐渐入睡
她静静听着我们的演唱会

a very literal translation below (by me)
——————————————————————————
She listens to my concert
from the first dating at her 17
when the boy lined up for her through the night
half a year saving, in exchange of tickets a pair
I sang, haunted her heart, tattered her heart
three years affection enclosed in a letter
she remembers the train left whistled and prompted
on the platform my songs accompanied people in tears
ah, accompanied them in tears
She listens to my concert
At her 25s, relationship is bright as sun-shine
but the boyfriend sent roses to someone else
screened the phone, she stayed up with my songs
then I sang, haunted her heart
tattered her heart
the breaking-up seems apathy to the grown-ups
Karaok and alcohol would cure alone
she sang my song, flickering pictures accompanied her in tears
ah, accompanied her in tears
I sang, haunted her heart
I sang, tattered her heart
True love seemed so precious at age 33
but the youngster pushed her away
only the man decided with whom fly faraway
ah, with whom he flied away
I sang, haunted her heart
I sang, tattered her heart
She tried to regain her vigour
years go by, we sang
we have no grudge against god or man
in the applauses my songs prompted my tears
ah, my song accompanied myself in tears
She listens to my concert
lasting passion in music lingers a 40some woman in charm
she was accompanied in tears, her child concerns
man on the side sleeps and snores
she listens to our concert in silence

(will disclose my analysis later, when I finish it as a part of my essay under construction lol )
