明天會更好We are the world二首歌,是國內、外藝人們為某項公益而大團結的濫觴。
因為它是歌壇上重要的歷史記錄,相信會勾起一些共同的回憶及感動。而後雖有幾次大團結、大合唱的事件,但都遠不如這兩首歌來得令人記憶深刻!
先聽歌不看內文,看你還認得出幾位歌手?

明天會更好是全球華語流行樂壇史上最成功的公益單曲,集台灣、香港、新加坡、馬來西亞等地六十位華人歌手共同錄唱,專輯於 1985 年年底由「藍與白唱片公司」發行。


關於明天會更好的創作是為了反盜版,這二十幾年來,相信智慧財產權的觀念有了長足的進步。
(We are the world 於 1985 年初發表,明天會更好於 1985 年底發表)




1984 年英國歌手菲爾柯林斯(Phil Collins)看到新聞中非洲依索匹亞等地區的人民,長期處於飢荒與營養不良而死亡,遂在聖誕節之前提出構想,由鮑伯蓋朵夫(Bob Geldof)擔任召集人,由數十位當紅藝人以「Band Aid」為名共同灌錄單曲義賣,將義賣所得援助非洲饑民,單曲「他們知道現在是聖誕節嗎?」(Do they know it's Christmas ?)於焉誕生。這張單曲推出後,立即在全世界引起迴響,光是英美兩地就賣出約三百廿萬張。


Do they know it's Christmas ?(1984)


英國歌壇的此項義舉,美國歌唱界自然不落人後,由黑人歌手哈利貝拉方提(Harry Belafonte)提出建議,之後獲得眾大牌歌手的鼎力支持,由昆西瓊斯(Quincy Jones)擔任製作人,在 1985 年 2 月 28 日,45 位當紅歌星雲集洛杉磯的錄音室,灌錄了「四海一家」(We are the world)這首義賣單曲。


「四海一家」這首歌是由萊納李奇和麥可傑克森合寫,兩人費了四天的時間寫曲,萊納先完成一部分,麥可看到後靈感大發,一夜之間就把全曲寫好。之後他們又花了兩個半小時作詞,為了普遍推廣此曲,歌詞也力求簡單易學。單曲完成後推出問世,受到的歡迎難以想像,短短數週便賣出八百萬張單曲,更勝英國藝人的「他們知道現在是聖誕節嗎?」。


英美歌壇有了這兩次成功的經驗,認為可以為非洲災民做的更多,於是由英國的鮑伯蓋朵夫繼續擔任召集人,籌畫英美兩地歌星馬拉松式的援非慈善演唱會,演唱會定名為「Live Aid」,於 7 月 13 日分別在英國倫敦的溫布利體育館和美國費城的甘迺迪體育館舉行,兩邊接力進行長達十小時的義演。這場演唱會除了吸引爆滿的現場觀眾,還經由七個人造衛星,傳送到全球一百六十幾個國家。負責穿針引線的鮑伯蓋朵夫還因此獲得諾貝爾和平獎的提名。


平心而論,「四海一家」確實是首出色的製作,數十位大牌歌手每人分唱幾句歌詞,要能充分發揮個人特色,又要兼顧歌曲的流暢性,確實不容易,製作人昆西瓊斯功不可沒。
