【英伦摇滚】Careful Hands - Sleeping at Last

《Careful Hands》

Put your coat on, this city trembles.
Keep your chin up, as you untangle God
From cold blood and bruises.

We are X-rays of something broken.
Cursive bloodlines write every forecast:
An orchestration
Of dissonance and innocent surrender.

When our color dies,
We will bury the ashes of time,
And we will earn new eyes.

Wrists get tired rewriting futures.
Bodies beg us to be creatures of habit.
We are creatures of habit.

Only with careful hands
We'll turn their fangs into feathers and cures.
Only with careful hands
We'll divide the prisoner
From the pioneer.

Clever beauty,
Umbrellas folding.
In architecture, our lines will measure
A map to find us.
Blue ink will guide us home.

Cranes are creeping, lifting metal,
We will find new ways to settle,
Tipping scales from the killer to it's prey

I can feel the weight around us,
Climbing every rib inside us,
A sanctuary in a lion's mouth.

【经典摇滚】I'll Be Your Mirror  - The Velvet Underground

这是“地下丝绒”的第一张专辑,也是摇滚乐历史上的一张划时代的经典之作,原版发行于1967年。封面来自美国波普艺术家安迪·沃霍尔(Andy Warhol)作品;歌词反应出当时社会的脱节与失序及对社会的疏离感。

1966年,地下丝绒在Cafe Bizarre驻唱时认识了Andy Warhol,这位以享乐主义为目标的波谱艺术大师,他肯定商业文明所带给人们的便利与舒适,强调艺术不应以曲高和寡为晃子,而将之商业化,使更多的人能欣赏到艺术的华丽与美妙。他不认为如此会贬低艺术的价值,这些观念不但影响了V.U.,也影响了Lou Reed。

I'll be your mirror
我将是你的镜子
Reflect what you are, in case you don't know
照照你的样子,以防你一无所知
I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
我将是风,是雨也是落日
The light on your door to show that you're home
光照在你门前 说明你回家了
When you think the night has seen your mind
当你觉得夜色看透了你的心
That inside you're twisted and unkind
你的内心郁结而刻薄
Let me stand to show that you are blind
让我站出来告诉你 你失去了理智
Please put down your hands
请放下你的双手
'Cause I see you
因为我看着你呢
I find it hard to believe you don't know
我发现很难相信 你竟一无所知
The beauty you are
你有多美
But if you don't let me be your eyes
但是如果你不让我做你的眼睛
A hand in your darkness, so you won't be afraid
做你黑暗中的一只手,那样你就不会害怕
When you think the night has seen your mind
当你觉得夜色看透了你的心
That inside you're twisted and unkind
你的内心郁结而刻薄
Let me stand to show that you are blind
让我站出来告诉你 你失去了理智
Please put down your hands
请放下你的双手
'Cause I see you
因为我看见你了
I'll be your mirror
因为我看着你呢
(reflect what you are)
(照照你的样子)

Into the tidal wave
Until it's all okay
Into my love you trust
Call in the rising star
Will we ever know
Follow the way we are

Heavy as the heart has been
and those lines that tore us in between
and the weight of the truth in these years
never left us or set us free

Into the tidal wave
From your heart you went
Took your lies within
Turned your hopes to dirt

Heavy as the heart has been
and those lines that tore us in between
and the weight of the truth in these years
never left us or set us free

Over the highest hill
into the bottom you burn
Wherever the waves have been
You try to make your turn

《揪心的玩笑与漫长的白日梦》

溜出时代银行的后门 
撕开夜幕和喑哑的平原 
越过淡季,森林和电 
牵引我们黑暗的心 
   
在愿望的最后一个季节 
解散清晨还有黄昏 
在愿望的最后一个季节 
记起我曾身藏利刃 
   
是谁来自山川湖海 
却囿于昼夜,厨房与爱 
   
来到自我意识的边疆 
看到父亲坐在云端抽烟 
他说孩子去和昨天和解吧 
就像我们从前那样 
   
用无限适用于未来的方法 
置换体内的星辰河流 
用无限适用于未来的方法 
热爱聚合又离散的鸟群 
   
是谁来自山川湖海 
却囿于昼夜,厨房与爱 
   
就在一瞬间 
握紧我矛盾密布的手

《Best Laid Plans 》

There was me with my pride
Standing our ground, standing our ground
We stood and yelled at the tide
To turn around, to turn around

Well, that day would outlive
Our best laid plans, our best laid plans
Something just had to give
And my castle gave itself back to the sand

I was my own and everyone's fool
Mutton dressed up as lamb
But now the emperor's clothes have been torn
I can see what I am

So hold my hat for a while
So I feel the rain, so I feel the rain
Take an inch from your mile
And start again, and start again

Put a little light in my soul
You shine I'll glow, you shine I'll glow
See I'm hollow, cold
So let me be the lantern that you hold

If I take myself seriously
Then I just get confused
They say those who can laugh at themselves
Never cease to be amused

I wanna find you
I wanna find you
Fall in love again
I wanna find you again
I wanna find you
The stillness of content
I wanna find you
I wanna find you
Fall in love again
I wanna find you again

【梦幻流行】Bum Raps & Love Taps - Elysian Fields
梦幻流行(Dream Pop)是另类摇滚的一个流派,它依靠音速处理音乐质地来表达悦耳的音调。“Elysian Fields就像精彩的诗句,它让你体会紫丁香气味的夜晚和躁动的月光海洋,烟雾弥漫的钢琴酒吧还有冰冷的拥抱。” 

Elysian Fields由Oren Bloedow和Jennifer二人组成。他们为Radioactive录了差不多三年音,出版了一张叫Elysian Fields的EP,还有一张完整的专辑Bleed Your Cedar, 这是赢得评论和喝彩的一张超凡的处女作。

《Bum Raps & Love Taps》

Teardrop on your cheek
How many woes you speak
You’ve been alone for so long
When did you forget your song?
When was your last kiss?
How many lovers will you miss?
You’re tired and you’re lonely now
You don’t have to be lonely now
Time will not wait
Though you pushed it aside
Don’t be afraid
Oh faded bride
Little bird out on a limb
It’s getting cold out
And I can’t invite you in
Better not hold out
Better fly away from here
And leave behind your fear
Nothing is certain now
And no one can show you how
Faith you couldn’t brave
Finally you’ve been betrayed
Oh this dark wave
Knocked you down and swept you away
And the old 78 is skipping
Better be there when the band starts playing
Oh ruined maid
All the love you couldn’t save
Now it’s getting late
Slip softly into starlight
Time to turn away
They’ve been waiting on the other side
Don’t be afraid
Slip softly into starlight
Slip softly into starlight
Starlight

《Jesus》歌词:

Jesus Christ, that's a pretty face

The kind you'd find on someone I could save

If they don't put me away

Well, it'll be a miracle


Do you believe you're missing out

That everything good is happening somewhere else?

But with nobody in your bed

The night's hard to get through


And I will die all alone

And when I arrive I won't know anyone


Well, Jesus Christ, I'm alone again

So what did you do those three days you were dead?

'cause this problem's gonna last more than the weekend.


Well, Jesus Christ, I'm not scared to die,

I'm a little bit scared of what comes after

Do I get the gold chariot?

Do I float through the ceiling?


Do I divide and fall apart?

'cause my bright is too slight to hold back all my dark

And the ship went down in sight of land

And at the gates, does Thomas ask to see my hands?


I know you're coming in the night like a thief

But I've had some time alone to hone my lying technique

I know you think that I'm someone you can trust

But I'm scared I'll get scared and I swear I'll try to nail you back up (everyone now)


So do you think that we could work out a sign

So I'll know it's you and that it's over so I won't even try


I know you're coming for the people like me

We all got wood and nails

And tongue-tied at hate factories

We all got wood and nails

And tongue-tied at hate factories

We all got wood and nails

And we sleep inside of this machine

【流金岁月】Nothing Lasts Forever - Echo & the Bunnymen

作为英伦摇滚乐迷,回声与兔人(Echo&The Bunnymen)是一个值得记忆的名字。这个横跨近30年的经典乐队,继续着多年来昏暗悲凉的忧郁,如同他们记忆中那个漫长的后朋克时代。

Echo&The Bunnymen最初成立于1978年夏天的Liverpool,一直顺利地发展自己固定的音乐风格,直至到80年代末随着主唱伊安麦库勒克(Ian McCulloch)的离队及鼓手的意外身亡,乐队开始步入瓶颈,于1990年乐队解散。直到1994年乐队重组,并以崭新的形态回归了乐坛。

录音室版本:Nothing Lasts Forever

《Nothing Lasts Forever》

I want it now
I want it now
Not the promises of what tomorrow brings
I need to live in dreams today
I'm tired of the song that sorrow sings
And I want more than I can get
Just trying to, trying to, trying to forget
I'd walk to you through rings of fire
And never let you know the way I feel
Under skin is where I hide
The love that always gets me on my knees
And I want more than I can get
Just trying to, trying to, trying to forget
Nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever
I want it now
I want it now
Don't tell me that my ship is coming in
Nothing comes to those who wait
Time's running out the door you're running in
So, I want more than I can get
Just trying to, trying to, trying to forget
Nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever
Nothing ever lasts forever
All the shadows and the pain
Are coming to you
All the shadows and the pain
Are coming to you
All the shadows and the pain
Are coming to you
All the shadows and the pain
Are coming to you
All the shadows and the pain
Are coming to you
All the shadows and the pain
Are coming to you
All the shadows and the pain
Are coming to you
