  不知道从什么时候开始,remix这个词就出现在了各种音乐app里面,出神入化的remix别有风味。雅思口语里刚好会常问到interesting song的题目,尤其对于remix过的一首歌的不同版本被各种油管儿网红以不同风格演绎,有些甚至远远超过的原唱的效果,所以这点比较有展开聊的潜力,比较适合在Part 2尬聊到两分钟。

  例如之前超火爆的Despacito,网上超级多版本,如果你一直关注的翻唱红人也制作过这首歌的cover,不妨来分享一下:

  I’d like to talk about a song I heard the other day on YouTube. It’s a remix version of Your Tears (完全是瞎编的), which is a Spanish song. I clicked this video completely out of curiosity, ‘cause I recognized the names of the singers, a male and female, but I didn’t know they could speak Spanish, so I just clicked. But it turned out it’s a cover song. And the amazing thing about it is that it combines lyrics from more than 30 songs, and it just sounded so harmonious. I mean, every piece of lyrics and melody just fit in so well with other. If you haven’t heard about those 30 songs, you wouldn’t know it’s a cover song.

  Those two singers recorded this song in their studio, what impressed me the most is their singing voice. It’s magnetic, powerful and actually pretty sweet. And they looked lovely as well, when they were singing the song, they just kept looking into each other’s eyes, with a sweet smile on their faces. So the result of the interaction and chemistry between those two singers are magical.

  I downloaded this song to my phone, and I would listen to it from time to time, so lately my friends always hear me humming the melody of the song. And interestingly, as a result, they are also familiar with the tunes now.

  语言点解析:

  the other day = recently 例如:

  remix = a new version of a recorded piece of music by using a machine to arrange the separate parts of the recording in a different way, add new parts, etc.例如:

  curiosity = a strong desire to know about something 例如:
