主题曲《The sound of silence》,这首歌在电影中一共出现了四次。却丝毫没有给观众听腻的感觉,因为它总是能在适当的时候想起。特别是片尾本带着伊莲逃婚的那一幕,他们坐在公车的最后一排。两人突然的沉默伴随着这首《the sound of silence》一起将剧情推向了高潮。

 

The Sound of Silence 寂静之声
Hello darkness, my old friend 你好 黑暗 我的老朋友
I've come to talk with you again 我又来和你交谈
Because a vision softly creeping 因为有一种幻觉正向悄悄地向我袭来
Left its seeds while I was sleeping 在我熟睡的时候留下了它的种子
And the vision that was planted in my brain 这种幻觉在我的脑海里生根发芽
Still remains 缠绕着我
Within the sound of silence 伴随着寂静的声音
In restless dreams I walked alone 在不安的梦幻中我独自行走
Narrow streets of cobblestone 狭窄的鹅卵石街道
'Neath the halo of a street lamp 在路灯的光环照耀下
I turned my collar to the cold and damp 我竖起衣领 抵御严寒和潮湿
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light 一道耀眼的霓虹灯光刺入我的眼睛
That split the night 它划破夜空
And touched the sound of silence 触摸着寂静的声音
And in the naked light I saw 在炫目的灯光下
Ten thousand people, maybe more 我看见成千上万的人
People talking without speaking 人们说而不言
People hearing without listening 听而不闻
People writing songs that voices never share 人们创造歌曲却唱不出声来
And no one dare disturb the sound of silence 没有人敢打扰这寂静的声音
"Fools" said I, "You do not know 我说:“傻瓜,难道你不知道
Silence like a cancer grows” 寂静如同顽疾滋长”
Hear my words that I might teach you 听我对你说的有益的话
Take my arms that I might reach to you 拉住我伸给你的手
But my words like silent as raindrops fell 但是我的话犹如雨滴飘落
And echoed in the wells of silence 在寂静的水井中回响
And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made. 人们向自己创造的霓虹之神
鞠躬 祈祷

And the sign flashed out its warning 神光中闪射出告诫的语句
And the words that it was forming 在字里行间指明
And the sign said: 它告诉人们
The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls 预言者的话都已写在地铁的墙上
and tenement halls 和房屋的大厅里
And whispered in the sound of silence." 在寂静的声音里低语

     《斯卡布罗集市》这是一首经典英文金曲,其中最著名的两个版本,一个是西蒙和加芬克尔(Simon and Garfunkel)为电影《毕业生》所创作的插曲,这首歌在当年曾超过了披头士乐队的白色专辑,登上了1968年畅销歌曲排行榜的榜首。另一个便是北京奥运会上主题曲的演唱者之一莎拉·布莱曼的翻唱,对于本人来说,沙拉的这一版本则更为熟悉。所以在电影中听到这首歌时一度曾以为这是沙拉的歌。= =!
