你曾经想过要成为一个乐队里有名的歌手 或音乐家吗?你是否曾梦想过在音乐会上 面对成千上万的观众演唱,观众欣赏你的 歌唱为你鼓掌吗?你唱卡拉OK时是否假装 自己就是像宋祖英或刘欢一样著名的歌星 吗?说实在的,很多人把名和利看得很重。 那么,人们又是怎样一起组成乐队的呢?

许多音乐家聚在一起组成乐队,是因为他 们喜欢自己作曲,演奏自己的音乐。他们 开始可能是一组中学生,在某个人家里排 练音乐是成名的第一步。有时他们可能在 街上或地铁里为过路人演奏,这样他们可 以为自己或自己要买的乐器多挣一些钱。 后来,他们可能在酒吧或者俱乐部里演出, 这样他们可以得到现金。当然,他们希望 在录音棚里录音,然后卖掉上百万张碟, 从而成为百万富翁。

然而,也有一个用不同方式组建起来的乐 队。这支乐队叫“门基乐队”,它开始时 是以电视节目表演的形式出现的。组成乐 队的音乐人演奏音乐,还彼此打趣逗笑。 这些玩笑和音乐大多都在模仿“甲壳虫” 乐队。电视制作人原计划想寻找四位会唱 又会表演的乐手。他们在报纸上登了一则 广告,想招摇滚乐手,但他们只招到一个 满意的。乐队的其他三人只能用演员来代 替。

因为这些演员中有些人唱得不是很好,他 们不得不依靠队里的其他人帮助。所以在演 出的时候他们只是假唱。不管怎样,他们的 表演非常幽默以至于其他的乐队也开始模仿。 他们非常走红使得歌迷们为了更加熟悉他们 而成立了俱乐部。门基乐队每个星期都要在 电视上演唱由别的音乐家创作的歌曲。然而, 经过大约一年以后,门基乐队逐渐对自己的 工作认真起来,他们开始像一支真正的乐队 那样演唱自己创作的歌曲。

然后他们录制自己的唱片,并且开始巡回 表演他们自己的音乐。在美国,他们甚至 比“甲壳虫”乐队还要受欢迎,出售的录 音专辑还要多。“门基乐队”大约在1970 年左右解散,但是令人高兴的是,到80年 代中期他们再次聚首。在1996年,他们推 出了一张新的专辑,像真正的乐队一样以 此来庆祝他们以往的时光。

FREDDY, THE FROG (Ⅰ) Freddy the frog dipped his long, thin legs into the water. Within a few short weeks he had changed from a small tadpole into the beautiful animal he was now.

He smiled to himself. Then suddenly he heard a fine deep sound that carried far into the darkness of the quiet night. Freddy looked up. “Other frogs! I must try and find them,” he thought. “It is so hard being a grown-up frog on my own.”

He began to swim slowly towards the sound. Suddenly he knocked into a large water lily pad. On it sat three confident frogs and they were playing instruments. Freddy climbed onto the leaf. “Can I sing with you?” he asked quietly. “Of course,” they said. He opened his mouth wide and


Help! I need somebody, Help! Not just anybody. Help! You know I need someone, Help! When I was young and so much younger than today, I never needed anybody’s help in any way.

But now those days are gone. I’m not so self-assured! Now I find I’ve changed my mind. I’ve opened up the door. Help me if you can, I’m feeling down. And I do appreciate you being round. Help me get my feet back on the ground. Won’t you please, please help me!

like it very much. What do you all think?

S3: I don’t mind what music we choose as long as I don’t have to sing. I think we should pretend to play an instrument. Maybe I can bring in my brother’s guitar. S4: Yes. That sounds good but let me say that I don’t like to sing in public so I think we should have a backing group that supports the main singer. What do you think?

S1: Who’s the best singer here? S2: I’m in the school choir. S3: Me too. Why don’t we sing a Chinese folk song together with a guitar and one backing singer. S1: It’s OK by me. S4: Now all we have to do is to choose the song. Let’s make a list of our favourites …

2 Write an e-mail to Freddy. Based on your discussion above, tell him your ideas and ask him for advice on how to make your band successful.

Sample letter Dear Freddy, My name is Li Hua. I’m beginning a band with my friends. However, we have never been in a band before. Could you please give us some advice? I would like to know what music to play and we cannot decide.

I like pop music but most of my friends like rock ‘n’ roll. Liu Mei likes rap. How are we to decide what to play? Do you suggest we play a little of all of these types of music? Or should we only play one kind of music? How did you and your friends decide what to play?
