轻摇滚 Soft Rock

轻柔摇滚产生于70年代初的一种摇滚乐,最初是指那些不用电声乐器,以民谣为基础的摇滚乐。后来,那些虽然使用电声乐器,但旋律优美平滑的摇滚乐也称为轻柔摇滚。这种音乐在美国唱片工业界被称为“中间路线”。 著名的轻柔摇滚音乐家有杰姆斯·泰勒(James Taylor)、尼尔·杨(Neil Young)、凯特 ·斯蒂文斯(Cat Stevens)、卡彭特演唱组(The Carpenters)等。 广义上的 轻柔摇滚泛指一切带有柔和的摇滚节奏并使用电声乐器的抒情歌曲,与Pop(流行曲)相似,港台大部分流行歌曲都可归入轻柔摇滚的范畴。

Soft Rock emerged in the early '70s, partially as a reaction to the extreme sounds of the late '60s. Soft rock was commercial and inoffensive, taking the sound of singer/songwriter and pop/rock but smoothing out all the edges. Bands like Bread, the Carpenters, and Chicago relied on simple, melodic songs with big, lush productions. Throughout the '70s, soft rock dominated the airwaves and it eventually metamorphosed into the synthesized sounds of adult contemporary in the '80s.
