When you think of , you inevitably think of either “Peter Gunn” or “Moon River.” (Well, maybe “The Pink Panther”–but that became a cartoon show, so it doesn’t count!) Breakfast at Tiffany’s gave the world the latter tune, and that beautiful melody recurs throughout this soundtrack LP, which remained No. 1 on the Billboard pop charts for 12 weeks in 1961. (Music for Peter Gunn in 1959 was Mancini’s only other No. 1 album.) The soundtrack doesn’t include Andy Williams’s hit single of “Moon River,” but then neither did the film. It does, however, take you through the many moods of the film (and the exploits of Miss Holly Golightly), with an emphasis on Latin influences in the forms of “Latin Golightly” and “Moon River Cha Cha.” Nevertheless, one common complaint has been that RCA could’ve remastered the music and added additional tracks to flesh out the CD. Maybe in the future… –Bill Holdship

一九六0年代中期的美國電影的製作概念是:電影裡面一定要加上一首電影主題歌,聯美公司的「一夜狂歡」電影製作成本只有五十八萬美金,但是原聲帶就淨賺了兩百萬美金;「齊瓦哥醫生」的主題曲原聲帶賣了兩百萬張,「豪勇七蛟龍」的主題曲被香菸公司以百萬代價買下廣告版權…利之所趨,自然形成風潮。

不過,開啟電影歌曲潮流的關鍵人物就是作曲家亨利曼西尼,他替電影「第凡內早餐」創作的「月河」一曲,可以說是最成功的範例,不但影片*「月河」催人熱淚,電影原聲帶更是行銷驚人,甚至餐廳酒吧都廣為流行,創造了無數的附加價值,堪稱是本世紀最成功的電影歌曲之一。

「悅耳好聽」(EASY LISTENING)可以說是亨利曼西尼音樂的基本特色,歌曲形式和旋律都不複雜,但是耳朵聽得進去,心靈還會受到感動,就完全要看作曲家擷取精華的功力。「月河」音樂是電影的靈魂,重點就是要來襯照奧黛麗赫本浪跡紅塵,但是猶保赤子本色的清純質地,亨利曼西尼另外創造了一些細雕細琢,象徵紅塵世界的背景音樂,描寫紐約浮華,但是關鍵時刻,質樸單純的「月河」就會浮現出來,他的剪裁搭配手法,充分捉住了音樂的戲劇情感。

「第凡內早餐」中,「月河」一共只出現過四次,首先是片頭的主題音樂,點明主題;然後就是經常宿醉宴起的女主角奧黛麗赫本,有一天突然梳洗乾淨,拿起吉他輕聲吟唱起「月河」,電影中收錄的是赫本的「原聲帶」版本,她稚嫩、夢幻般的嗓音,完全貼合了角色身世;等到最後高潮,情郎悲憤下車,赫本冒雨去尋找她的小貓,兩人再度遇合,情不自禁雨中相吻,「月河」的音樂如雨絲般當頭淋下,準確牽動了觀眾的期待和讚歎。
