美国96岁老人写给过世妻子的歌曲 Oh Sweet Lorraine

发布时间:  浏览: 次  作者:爱英语吧

在一次原创歌曲比赛中,Green Shoe Studio意外地收到了一份来自伊利诺伊州的96岁老人的投稿,一首写给伴他走过72年婚姻旅途的过世的妻子的歌曲。多希望能再走一遍往日时光,但生命只有一次,时不再来。。。
Fred Stobaugh, 96, remembered laying eyes on the prettiest girl he ever saw: It was 1938, and she was a car hop named Lorraine at an A&W Rootbeer stand in East Peoria, Ill.
Two years later, she was his wife. They remained together until Lorraine's death this year.


"She gave me 75 years of her life," Stobaugh said in an online documentary.
It was this love story that transformed Stobaugh - not a musician by any means - into a chart-topping songwriter and Internet star.
Soon after Lorraine died, Green Shoe Studio, an Illinois-based music studio, held an online contest for singer-songwriters. Studio employees were sorting through uploaded videos when they received a manila envelope.
Inside were heartfelt lyrics that Stobaugh wrote about the love of his life, titled "Sweet Lorraine."
"Oh sweet Lorraine, I wish we could do all the good times over again," the song starts. "Oh sweet Lorraine, life only goes around once, but never again. ... The memories always linger on. Oh sweet Lorraine, I don't want to move on. ... that's why I wrote this song."
The studio said the lyrics didn't meet the submission criteria for the singer-songwriter contest. But it did him one better - the studio had professional musicians work with Stobaugh to transform the lyrics into a song.
The studio created a documentary video telling Stobaugh's story and posted it online.
