《星条旗永不落》,美国海军陆战队军乐团演奏版

星条旗永不落》(英语:The Stars and Stripes Forever),或翻译成《永远的星条旗》、《星条旗颂》,是美国作曲家約翰·菲利普·蘇沙代表作,美国著名爱国主义进行曲。根据1987年的美国国家法令(The United States Code),《星条旗永不落》为美国國家进行曲(the national march of the United States of America)。

在中国,此歌常常与美国国歌《星条旗》混淆。

历史[编辑]

根据苏萨的自传《独自行进》(Marching Along)所述,苏萨在1896年的圣诞节创作了这首曲子。当时他在一艘远洋游轮上,与妻子计划前往欧洲旅行。他得知了苏萨乐队的支持者大卫·布莱克利(David Blakely)逝世的消息。他在脑海里创作了这首进行曲,并在到达美国的时候记在了纸上。[1]1897年,这首曲子在费城的威洛格罗夫公园英语Willow Grove Park首次演奏。立即受到追捧。[2]

音乐[编辑]

《星条旗永不落》遵循了美国军队进行曲的普遍风格。

歌词[编辑]

[First Strain]
Let martial note in triumph float
And liberty extend its mighty hand
A flag appears 'mid thunderous cheers,
The banner of the Western land.
The emblem of the brave and true
Its folds protect no tyrant crew;
The red and white and starry blue
Is freedom's shield and hope.

[Second Strain]
Other nations may deem their flags the best
And cheer them with fervid elation
But the flag of the North and South and West
Is the flag of flags, the flag of Freedom's nation.

(repeats) Other nations may deem their flags the best
And cheer them with fervid elation,
But the flag of the North and South and West
Is the flag of flags, the flag of Freedom's nation.

[Trio]
Hurrah for the flag of the free!
May it wave as our standard forever,
The gem of the land and the sea,
The banner of the right.
Let despots remember the day
When our fathers with mighty endeavor
Proclaimed as they marched to the fray
That by their might and by their right
It waves forever.

[Repeat of the First Strain]
Let eagle shriek from lofty peak
The never-ending watchword of our land;
Let summer breeze waft through the trees
The echo of the chorus grand.
Sing out for liberty and light,
Sing out for freedom and the right.
Sing out for Union and its might,
O patriotic sons.

[Grandioso]
Hurrah for the flag of the free.
May it wave as our standard forever
The gem of the land and the sea,
The banner of the right.
Let despots remember the day
When our fathers with mighty endeavor
Proclaimed as they marched to the fray,
That by their might and by their right
It waves forever.

  • 此歌通常在美国总统的公开演讲之后,或出席活动、纪念仪式等场合演奏。而另一首进行曲《向统帅致敬》,则一般在介绍总统时演奏。
  • 1972年,美国总统尼克松访华,期间军乐团演奏的即为《星条旗永不落》。许多民众误以为此即美国国歌,因此美国国歌「星条旗」(The Star-Spangled Banner)的错误译法“星条旗永不落”流传甚广。甚至中华人民共和国官方媒体新华网上关于美国国歌的介绍也将两首歌曲的译名混淆[3]。混淆更为主要的原因是美国国家法令(The United States Code)170条规定《星条旗》(The Star-Spangled Banner)为美国国歌(National Anthem),188条规定《星条旗永不落》为美国國家进行曲(National March),與中华人民共和国國內被宣傳的情形有別。
