Forty-six years after its release, John Lennon’s classic song "Imagine" is formally getting a co-writer -- his widow, Yoko Ono.
约翰·列侬经典歌曲Imagine(《想象》)在发布46年后,终于承认了另一位创作者——列侬的遗孀小野洋子。
The British musician first gained worldwide fame in the early 1960s, as a member of The Beatles. The group officially broke up in 1970, shortly after Lennon married Ono, a Japanese singer and activist.
这位英国音乐家在20世纪60年代初作为披头士乐队的一员闻名于世。该组合1970年正式解散,就在列侬与日本歌手及活动家小野洋子结婚后不久。
By then, Lennon was already writing songs of his own. Perhaps no Lennon song, however, is more famous than "Imagine."
在那时候,列侬就已经自己写歌了。然而,也许没有一首歌比Imagine更出名。
Imagine there’s no countries,
想象世界上没有国家
It isn’t hard to do.
这也不是很难
Nothing to kill or die for,
没有谁要消灭谁,谁也不为谁而牺牲
And no religion too.
世界上也没有宗教
Imagine all the people
想象世上所有人
Living life in peace.
都生活在和平宁静中。
The song was released in 1971. It called for peace during the Vietnam War, and urged people around the world to live in unity. Its message, music experts say, has remained important and relatable through the years.
这首歌于1971年发布。它在越南战争期间呼吁和平,呼吁全世界的人们团结一致。音乐专家们表示,其中传达之意这么多年来依旧很重要,能够引起共鸣。
In 2011, the magazine Rolling Stone named "Imagine" the third-greatest song of all time. It wrote, "John Lennon wrote "Imagine," his greatest musical gift to the world, one morning early in 1971 in his bedroom....His wife, Yoko Ono, watched as Lennon sat at the white grand piano....and virtually completed the song."
2011年,《滚石》杂志将Imagine评为500首最伟大的歌曲中的第三名。该杂志写道,“约翰·列侬创作出Imagine,是他送给世界最伟大的音乐礼物,1971年的一个清晨,在他的卧室中,他的妻子小野洋子注视着列侬坐在白色的钢琴前,创作完这首歌。”
That story, however, changed this week at a National Music Publishers Association event in New York City. On Wednesday evening, the association honored "Imagine" with its song of the century award.
然而本周在纽约美国全国音乐发行人协会的一个活动上,这个故事发生了改变。周三晚,该协会授予Imagine世纪金曲奖。
Its chief executive, David Israelite, also made a surprise announcement. He said Ono would officially receive credit as a co-writer of "Imagine." Israelite said the decision was made based on Lennon’s wishes.
该协会的首席执行官大卫·伊斯列特发表了一个令人惊讶的声明。他说小野洋子正式被承认为Imagine的合作者。伊斯列特说该决定基于列侬的心愿。
John Lennon himself said in a 1980 interview with the BBC that Ono played a role in writing the song. He said it "should be credited as a Lennon-Ono song, because a lot of it, the lyric and the concept, came from Yoko." Lennon also said that some of the ideas of "Imagine" came from Ono’s book "Grapefruit," and that not including her as a writer was "selfish" on his part.
约翰·列侬自己在1980年BBC的一个采访中说,小野洋子在这首歌的创作中发挥了重要作用。他说这首歌“应当视为列侬和洋子共同创作的成果,因为其中很大一部分,歌词和作曲都源于洋子”。列侬还说道,Imagine的一些灵感来源于洋子的书《葡萄柚》。没有将其纳入作曲者是他的“私心”作祟。
Parts of that interview were played Wednesday during the announcement. Israelite said it was his honor to "correct the record" and give Ono credit for "Imagine."
部分采访内容在周三的声明中公布。伊斯列特说他很荣幸可以“修正这个记录”,承认洋子在Imagine创作中的贡献。
Ono and her son, Sean, attended the event to accept the song award. Israelite’s announcement, however, came as a surprise.
小野洋子和她的儿子肖恩出席了这个活动并接受奖项。然而伊斯列特的这个声明却是出乎意料的惊喜。
Sean Ono Lennon told Billboard magazine that Wednesday "may have been the happiest day of mine and [my] mother’s life."
肖恩·列侬告诉《滚石》杂志说,周三“也许是我和我母亲一生中最开心的日子”。
He also described the surprise announcement on Facebook. He wrote it was the "proudest day of my life" and that "patience is a virtue!"
他在Facebook上描述了这个令人吃惊的声明。他写道这是“我一生最骄傲的一天”,“坚韧是一种美德”。
John Lennon and Yoko Ono were married from 1969 until Lennon’s murder in December 1980.
约翰·列侬和小野洋子1969年结婚,直至列侬1980年12月被刺身亡。
