似水流年

真的好听!

MØ:

Ingrid Michaelson的《Afterlife》

莫西顾:

Ingrid Michaelson估计是我在LOFTER上推荐过最多次的歌手,从最早的《Be OK》,到大热单曲《Everybody》,到这张在我眼中几乎首首精良的神专辑,音乐的风格,多元化,乃至歌手本身的形象都有着大胆的转变,但步步稳健。这种类似抽丝剥茧般的完美呈现,却无疑是一个更好的Ingrid Michaelaon。

 

歌词:

 

When the world is breaking down around you
当你周围的世界分崩离析
Taking everything that you know
夺去熟悉的一切
What you didn't know
你却不知道
Is that we can go forever
只要我们想
If we want to we can live
就能一直走下去
Inside of a moment
一瞬便能活出精彩

The one that we own
就是现在
You and me
你和我
We got this
能做到
You and me
你和我
We're beautiful
我们都是完美的

We are going to live tonight

Like there's no tomorrow
就像没有明天
'Cause we are the afterlife
因为我们已经重生
Living like you're dying
垂死般活着
Isn't living at all
根本不是生活
Give me your cold hands
递给我你冰冷的双手
Put them on my heart
放到我的心上
Raise a glass to everyone
举起酒杯 振作起来
Who thinks they'll never make it through
此生绝望的人们
This life
从此
To live a brand new start
开始全新的生活
You and me
你和我
We got this
能做到
You and me
你和我

Tell me not run

Not to worry anymore
不再忧虑
I can't hold on tight

To nothing better than the rest

XYLØ——来自美国的独立流行两人乐队,Chase Duddy有着出色的创作才华,Paige或者说是Mrs.Duddy,则负责用声音让一切在音乐世界中重现。在很多地方都看到过Ø这个字母,这次终于查了资料,这是一个在丹麦语、挪威语、法罗语中使用的元音字母,在别的地方还有更多的含义,虽然不知道在这里具体是指什么意思,但无疑让乐队名显得更独特了那么一点。

复古黑白的封面印象,女主唱的声音带着一点甜腻,更多的则给人一种直的拧着的冷淡感,在如梦似幻的旋律中,故事在光阴流转中缓缓落幕...

 

歌词:

 

I’m bad luck baby, you know

莫西顾:

都以为人最绝望的时候,痛不欲生,想要放弃,其实我们都错了,恰恰是当一个人开始不畏生死,不奢求结果,拿起武器,准备背水一战的时候,我们才最绝望,也最孤勇。所以才会有人在听到这首歌,听到“never give up”这句时热泪盈眶吧。

Rhodes的这首《Breathe》,网易云音乐目前评论数91,老实说,这首歌美好得让人有藏私的欲望。

 

歌词:

 

Night break in two
There's a light in the sky, there's a light, and it's all for you
Dawn colors all
Tell me how do you feel
Tell me how do you need to heal
Are you holding your breath again
Are you holding your breath again
Breathe, release it all
Come on now, I'll keep you warm
Breathe, release it all
Come on now, I need your love
Come on
I'll steer the wind, don't you move

Will it carry me, easily carry me close to you
Don't loose your sight
When the fire in your heart takes a hold of your life
Are you holding your breath again?
Breathe, release it all
Come on now, I'll keep you warm
Come on
Breathe, release it all
Come on now, I need your love
Come on now
Never give up, never give up
Never give up, never give up
Never give up, never give up
Breathe, release it all
Come on now, I'll keep you warm
Come on
Breathe, release it all
Come on now, I need your love
Come on now
There's a life, it's all for you
Come on now
There's a life, it's all for you
Come on now
There's a life, it's all for you
Come on now
Breath, release it all

Katy Perry陪跑了七年,至今还未获得一座格莱美。

穿着各种奇形怪状的衣服,把彩虹的颜色几乎在头上换了个遍,精致得像个芭比娃娃,Katy Perry活得肆意而快活。

2012年Billboard年度女性,全英音乐奖最佳女歌手,全美音乐奖最受欢迎流行女歌手,一张专辑里诞生五首冠军单曲,音乐事业上玩得风生水起的水果姐可能早已不需要一座格莱美来证明。


歌词(翻译:水果杨梅十八岁):


I knew you were
我知道你要
You were gonna come to me
你要来找我
And here you are
而现在你已经来了
But you better choose carefully
但是你最好还是想清楚
‘Cause I’m capable of anything
因为什么事我都做的出来
Of anything and everything
无论什么事情
Make me your Aphrodite
你还是让我做你的阿佛洛狄忒
Make me your one and only
让我做你的独一无二
Don’t make me your enemy, your enemy, your enemy
不要将我变成你的仇敌
So you wanna play with magic
所以你想玩弄鬼把戏
Boy, you should know whatcha falling for
宝贝,你最好知道你为谁倾倒
Baby do you dare to do this
宝贝,你真的敢这么做么?
Cause I’m coming atcha like a dark horse
因为我像黑马向你扑来
Are you ready for, ready for
而你准备好了么?准备好了么?
A perfect storm, perfect storm
一场完美的风暴向你袭来
Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine
因为一旦你是我的
There’s no going back
一切就不能回头
Mark my words
听我说
This love will make you levitate
这爱会让你漂浮空中
Like a bird
像一只鸟
Like a bird without a cage
一只挣脱牢笼的鸟
But down to earth
但是必须实事求是
If you choose to walk away, don’t walk away
你选择离开与否
It’s in the palm of your hand now baby
现在都掌握在你自己手里,宝贝
It’s a yes or no, no maybe
只需是或不,而不是给我一个可能
So just be sure before you give it up to me
在你甩掉我之前请给我一个明确回复
Up to me, give it up to me
就那样甩掉我之前
So you wanna play with magic
所以你想玩弄鬼把戏
Boy, you should know whatcha falling for
宝贝,你最好知道你为谁倾倒
Baby do you dare to do this
宝贝,你真的敢这么做么?
Cause I’m coming atcha like a dark horse
因为我像黑马向你扑来
Are you ready for, ready for
而你准备好了么?准备了么?
A perfect storm, perfect storm
一场完美的风暴向你袭来
Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine
因为一旦你是我
There’s no going back
一切就不能回头
[Juicy J's Rap Verse]

So you wanna play with magic

莫 西 顾:

       我们上班,下班,上班,下班,在这座冷冰冰的钢铁森林里走着日复一日重复的路。

       Of Monsters And Men的这首《Dirty Paws》有着让人足以抛弃一切的冲动与果决。真正的流浪和梦想不在这里,而在远方。而我唯一想做的,就是有一天和你听歌,大声唱歌,在路上。

       我不走重复的路,哪怕迷路。


歌词:


Jumping up and down the floor, 
my head is an animal.
And once there was an animal,
it had a son that mowed the lawn.

The son was an ok guy, 
he had a pet dragonfly
The dragonfly it ran away
but it came back with a story to say.

Her dirty paws and furry coat, 
she ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees, 
they used to sing about the birds and the bees.


The bees had declared a war, 
the sky wasn’t big enough for them all.
The birds, they got help from below, 
from Dirty Paws and the creatures of snow.

And for a while things were cold,
they were scared down in their holes.
The forest that once was green
was colored black by those killing machines.

But she and her furry friends
took down the queen bee and her men.
And that’s how the story goes, 
the story of the beast with those four dirty paws.


爱念:

这首歌和周云蓬的《中国孩子》曲调很相近。

Agnes Obel是来自丹麦的一位才华横溢的青年歌手、作曲家,她的嗓音如同那种极细的砂纸,很富有质感。她的创作不仅限于一个音乐风格,在她的音乐中,往往会出现民谣及独立风格音乐的影子。她的歌曲能触及观众的心灵,因为这些歌曲即随性又简单,她的性感和高雅的声乐演奏是音乐整体的核心要素,并且有如梦幻般的诗意。

Riverside — Agnes Obel

Down by the river by the boats
划着船顺着河流而下
Where everybody goes to be alone
每个人都要孤单前往
Where you won't see any rising sun
那是一个看不见日出的地方
Down to the river we will run
顺着河流我们将逃离

When by the water we drink to the dregs
当我们把水都喝尽
Look at the stones on the river bed
看到躺在河床上的石头
I can tell from your eyes
你的眼神告诉我
You've never been by the riverside
你从未到过河边

Down by the water the riverbed
在河边,在河床边
Somebody calls you somebody says
有人在呼唤你,有人在说
swim with the current and float away
随着河流飘走吧
Down by the river everyday
每天都如此

Oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep
上帝啊,我看见河水深处腐朽的一切
And I don't know why I go the way
我不知道我为什么要来到
Down by the riverside
这河床边上

When that old river runs pass your eyes
当你看见从前的河流流过
To wash off the dirt on the riverside
要把河床上的污浊洗清
Go to the water so very near
那么快亲近这可贵的河水
The river will be your eyes and ears
这河水就是你的眼睛和耳朵

I walk to the borders on my own
我独自走在边界上
To fall in the water just like a stone
就像石头那样坠入水中
Chilled to the marrow in them bones
感觉冰冷刺骨
Why do I go here all alone
为什么我要只身来这?

Oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep
上帝啊,我看见河水深处腐朽的一切
And I don't know why I go the way
我不知道为何我要来到
Down by the riverside
这河岸边上

        之前推荐过Paloma Faith的一首《Stargazer》,而这首《Changing》是Paloma Faith 助阵 SIGMA 的新单,前奏响起的一瞬间,就一下子把我吸引住。Paloma Faith 的声音很有辨识度且很强悍的入侵性,明明是别人的新单,硬是用自己穿透力十足的嗓音扳成了自己的主场。在2015年2月的全英音乐奖上,Paloma Faith获得了最佳英国女歌手奖,从曾经的杂技演员到如今获得的英国最佳女歌手,Paloma Faith用她坚定的每一步有力地证明了自己的价值 。


歌词:


Hell down, heaven down
Living in the same town
Tryna find something new
Broken picture frame
I've been frozen in
Tryna find a better view

This ain't real, this ain't cool
This ain't what I signed up too
This ain't right, it's no good
No good, oh

Everything is changing
And I've been here for too long
Going through the same things
I've been hurting too long, got to move on
Say I
I can't do this anymore
If everything is changing
And I know, you'll find it

I don't understand playing by the same hand
How you find something new
I can't work it out, what it's all about
I won't live my life through you

This ain't real, this ain't cool
This ain't what I signed up too
This ain't right, it's no good
No good, oh

Everything is changing
And I've been here for too long
Going through the same things
I've been hurting too long, got to move on
Say I
I can't do this anymore
If everything is changing
And I know, you'll find it

Got to let go
Got to let go

I've been here for too long
I've been here for too long
I've been here for too long
I've been here for too long
I've been here for too long
I've been here for too long
I've been here for too long
Everything is changing

莫西顾:

       Ellie Goulding总是能把情歌的感觉拿捏地恰到好处,那种爱情带给人的甜蜜幸福感竟然从她嘴里唱到我们心里。Ellie Goulding的声音就像是一股轻盈飘渺的气流缓缓淌过耳旁,温馨的旋律,轻松自如的吟唱都给人一种放松的感受。


歌词:


How long will I love you?

对你的爱会持续多久

As long as stars are above you,

只要你头顶的星星依旧闪烁

And longer if I can

如果我能延长生命

How long will I need you?

对你的情会延续多久

As long as the seasons need to follow their plan

只要四季依旧更替

How long will I be with you?

你我会相伴多久

As long as the sea is bound to wash upon the sand

只要大海依旧冲刷着海滩

How long will I want you?

对你的渴望会燃烧多久

As long as you want me to,

只要你对我的爱不变

And longer by far

直到永远

How long will I hold you?

就这样我们相拥会持续多久

As long as your father told you,

只要你父亲告诉你

As long as you can

只要你能做到

How long will I give to you?

把所有的一切都倾注给你 会是多久

As long as I live through you,

只要你陪伴在我身旁

However long you say

无论你所要多久

How long will I love you?

对你的爱会持续多久

As long as stars are above you,

只要你头顶的星星依旧在闪烁

And longer if I may

愿生命延长 爱你到永远

How long will I love you?

对你的爱会持续多久

As long as stars are above you.

只要你头顶的星星依旧闪烁


莫西顾:

       歌曲的开头是一段欢快的口哨声,Dia Frampton的声音听了特别舒服,让人有单曲循环的冲动。一首欢快的歌曲,一曲活泼的曲调,清新活波的女声,无疑是最好的组合。



歌词:

Looking back on younger days, the time has passed, 
 
And nothing stays the same. Hey hey hey! 
   
She was such a pretty girl, with glowing eyes and yellow curls. Hey hey hey! 
 
Stars are in a summer night, 
 
She's wishing that they'd fall down through the atmosphere, for a souvenir. 
 
She's waiting for her Superman, her Never land, 
 
Cause she can show the way. Hey hey hey! 
   
Where's her missing piece her mind's been chasing, chasing? 
 

A bullet with your name, a ticking time grenade, 
 
You better run away, run away, run away 
   
Either way you're screwed, there's nothing you can do, 
 
You better run away, run away, run away. 
   

She's tellin' tales through telephone 
 
That make you cry, chill to the bone. Hey hey hey! 
使 
It's lock and key, electrified, 
 
Hide and seek from dirty eyes. Hey hey hey! 
 
Driving in the rain to somewhere far, 
 
But they've got tattoos stamped upon their arms, of her name in hearts 
 
She doesn't understand that love is what you give, not given up. 
 
Hey hey hey!    
Where's her missing piece her mind's been chasing, chasing? 
 

A bullet with your name, a ticking time grenade, 
 
You better run away, run away, run away 
   
Either way you're screwed, there's nothing you can do, 
 
No matter what you say, what you say, what you say. 
   
Yeah you better not sleep, because she's waiting, waiting. 
 
She knows all about you; you're in her aim. 
  
A bullet with your name, a ticking time grenade, 
 
You better run away, run away, run away 
   
Either way you're screwed, there's nothing you can do, 
 
You better run away, run away, run away 
   

梦里不知身是客:

这歌我亦中意,很有力量,来自Ellie Goulding的《How Long Will I Love You》,也是电影《时空恋旅人》主题曲,电影中是男声版,不是Ellie Goulding唱的。我更喜欢Ellie Goulding的版本。之前朋友向我推荐了Ellie Goulding的《Your song》,当时很惊艳。

2010年,Ellie获得BBC新闻网站评选为“2010年流行新声音”名单的榜首,再获全英音乐奖“乐评首选大奖”。她擅长把简单的流行民谣融入时髦的电音旋律空间。音乐轻盈、活泼,真情奔放,很容易让乐迷的心跟着悦耳的旋律一起飞扬,英国卫报形容Ellie的歌声彷佛是空灵乐派的Cocteau Twins乐团唱起了流行乐的感觉。
