听首歌,链子的April Skies

这时的天空,刚刚变得和里面的歌词一样
under the april skies
under the april sun
sun grows cold
sky gets black
他们的歌太适合锻炼身体时听了
天空虽然有些阴郁,但不闷

关于Some Guys Have All The Luck

March 8th, 2009, Posted by: agon   

早上听MGMT的Kids时候,不知怎么想到了Robert Palmer,很想再听听他唱的Some Guys Have All The Luck。上学的时候买了他的“addictions”双张打口,总是一遍遍的听这首歌。今天才知道,Robert Palmer已经在2003年心脏病去世了。

这里有一篇文章,写了关于Some Guys Have All The Luck的历史。

这首歌由Jeff Fortgang所写,但除了这首歌,并未发现作者写过其他有名的歌。最早由灵魂乐团The Persuaders在1973年发行,后来在雷鬼乐圈里流行,最早的版本是1974年,这首歌雷鬼乐的版本最多。

Robert Palmer所唱的歌大部分都是自己写的,为什么会唱这首歌呢?那张专辑册子里,正好有一段解释,抄上来:”I was working with Moon Martin when I wrote Some Guys.I played it to him and then a few days later he came in and he’d just heard someone singing it in the studio across the road,which seemed impossible since I haven’t finished it yet myself!What happened was that I must have heard sublminally,I think it was on Australian radio,and just hadn’t realised.A further coincidence was that Jack Nuber,who mixed the song,had produced it for an 18-year-old jamaican kid called Junior Tucker.In the end the only thing I remebered was the title line.the rest is very different from the many versions that were subsequntly recorded.”

大意是他把自己写的一首新歌给他朋友听,几日后,他朋友告诉他,在街对面的录音室里听到有人唱这首歌,他感到不可思议,自己还没写完这首歌呢。可能他以前在收音机里听过这首歌,已经忘了,可潜意识里只记得这首歌的标题,这也是为什么Robert Palmer的版本和其他的版本歌词只有两句一样,原歌词是孤单男郁闷的倾诉。肯能也因为如此,这首歌才很有Robert Palmer自己的风格。

两年后,Rod Stewart也翻唱了这首歌,使这首歌更流行。可在这么多版本中还是最喜欢Robert Palmer的版本。

The Sky Crawlers

似乎从这一两年起,要想看闷片,必须要睡饱,否则四五十分钟后,眼皮就不大抬得起来。

昨天晚上没睡好,下午正犯困的时候,看了押井守的《天空杀手》,虽然这个片一点也不算闷片,在空战最激烈那段,眼睛开始不听话,头不停的栽,空战结束,就像熬过了晚上12点,精神突然变得满满。然后直到结束,听着主题音乐,空虚感飘来,虽然空虚对自己已经不再是个问题,太阳也下去了,有点冷,想找根烟来抽。

押井守在这个片子的一个访谈里说:“所谓没有风险的人生,其实就是从不作出选择,保留所有的可能性。”自己从大三开始到现在这四五年,一直处于这种“保留所有的可能性”的状态里。可能失了不少热情,剩些许色情。

找回来。

晒太阳

如果身体健康,肚子不饿,也没有急着上厕所,没下一场雪的冬天要去了,春天也不远了,刚刚洗过澡,坐在阴影里,一首中意的歌,没有风,没有云,太阳光开始从手移向手臂,身体慢慢被加温……

Watch Her Disappear

Watch Her Disappear
Tom Waits – Vocal, Pump Organ
Dawn Harms – Violin
Matt Brubeck – Cello

Last night I dreamed that I was dreaming of you
And from a window across the lawn I watched you undress
Wearing your sunset of purple tightly woven around your hair
That rose in strangled ebony curls
Moving in a yellow bedroom light
The air is wet with sound
The faraway yelping of a wounded dog
And the ground is drinking a slow faucet leak
Your house is so soft and fading as it soaks the black summer heat
A light goes on and the door opens
And a yellow cat runs out on the stream of hall light and into the yard

A wooden cherry scent is faintly breathing the air
I hear your champagne laugh
You wear two lavender orchids
One in your hair and one on your hip
A string of yellow carnival lights comes on with the dusk
Circling the lake with a slowly dipping halo
And I hear a banjo tango

And you dance into the shadow of a black poplar tree
And I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
I watched you as you disappeared
