這是瑪麗亞凱莉最新專輯「Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel / 不完美天使」的一首「I Want To Know What Love Is」,原唱者是「Foreigner」,這次她將這首老歌新唱重新編曲,讓人聽了意猶未盡,糾結的心情讓人會 Repeat 聆聽。

  這首歌在她的專輯裡其實是接在前一首的「languishing (the interlude)」,兩首中間用鋼琴銜接在一起,聽起來就是一首歌,從「枯萎(插曲)」到「我想知道愛是什麼」,可以看出她對於愛情的渴望、期待,她低聲傾訴慢慢引導出歌曲,運用了真假音轉換,到副歌則加入了合聲,立刻能感受到她漫步在雲端的氛圍。

  這首經典作品被很多歌手翻唱過,上下的音域非常廣,而她注入新的節拍顯出歌詞的情感,整首歌到了第2段的副歌,以大規模合唱的福音方式進行,這樣的方式跟他之前的「Make It Happen」「Fly Like A Bird」一樣,主唱與和聲團一拋一接,再拋出她的招牌-,把音符幻化成鳥鳴聲般衝出雲霄,充分表現出她渴望對愛情的追求。

  下面是 2009/10/02 在「The View」的現場演唱,她把這首歌唱的非常好,尤其是後面的部分,轉得實在是 Perfect,大家聽看看唄!

 
 

I Want To Know What Love Is
(Written by Mick Jones - Produced by Mariah Carey, C. "Tricky" Stewart and James "Big Jim" Wright)

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
Id better read between the lines
In case I need it when Im colder

In my life
Theres been heartache and pain
I dont know
If I can face it again
Cant stop now
Ive traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I want to know what love is
I want you to show me
I want to feel what love is
I know you can show me

Gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
Ive got nowhere left to hide
It looks like loves finally found me

In my life
Theres been heartache and pain
I dont know
If I can face it again
Cant stop now
Ive traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I want to know what love is
I want you to show me
I want to feel what love is
I know you can show me

Show me
I want to know

I want to know what love is
I want you to show me
I want to feel what love is
I know you can show me

Oh, lets talk about love
