【民谣摇滚】Home to Me - Josh Kelley

木吉他配乐的轻快曲风,微温的歌唱情绪,弥漫着迷惑、不安、爱慕、期许与等待,写实且深刻。

Josh Kelley, 1980年出生于缅因州Augusta,美国乐坛天才型创作歌手。从来没有受过专业音乐训练的Josh大学时候曾经是一名专业运动员。2003年,Josh发行第一张专辑『For The Ride Home』。

《Home to Me》

Isn't it funny how the roads just pass us by?
Isn't it crazy how we never get it right?
Time is wasted on money and money wasted on lust
Treat her like a lady and she'll never get enough
'Cause' it's you that I'm runnin' to, baby
And it's you that I'm feelin' for lately
And it's like other pain that never goes away
And it always starts today
'Cause you are home to me
You are home to me
You are home to me, baby
You are home to me

Isn't it perfect how the memories, they feel the same?
Isn't it amazing how the song remains unchanged?
Time is wasted on money and money wasted on lust
Treat her like a lady and she'll never get enough
Cause' it's you that I'm runnin' to, baby
And it's you that I'm feelin' for lately
And it's like other pain that never goes away
And it always starts today
'Cause you are home to me
'Cause you are home to me
'Cause you are home to me, baby
You are home to me
Oh, when I think of everything
That I love in this world, baby
I think of you, you are home to me, baby
Oh, I picture you in that same old side of the bed
I'm gonna come snuggling by your side and make you feel safe

【独立民谣】Two Kids -  Laura Gibson

选自美国独立厂牌Barsuk Records于2016年发布的专辑《Empire Builde》。

Laura Gibson,另类民谣女歌手,词曲作家,制作人。她略带复古的嗓音,轻松恬淡,充满了浓浓的乡土气息。

《Two Kids》

Two kids, no tricks, only rich in time
Saying "Never look back
Throw out every sorrow we've had."
Make a move, trade a roof for the open sky
Living on luck
Tethering our hopes to a pickup truck
They'll tell us, honey
"You've gotta know, you've gotta know where you're going."
But you are my sun, my northern lights, my southern cross
And if we're gonna die young
We're gonna die with a love song in our mouths
Two hearts, new start, every card is wild
There in your arms, with the radio up and the windows down

Loose hands, slow dance under crooked stars
We were clumsy at love
It was a shaky two-step in a parking lot
They'll tell us, dear
"You better fear, you better fear it all."
But you are my sun, my northern lights, my southern cross
If we're gonna die young
We're gonna die with a love song in our mouths

And maybe my darling
There's more than following an endless road
And maybe someday we're gonna trade
Our freedom for a better home
For a house and a yard, and a son and a daughter
And a steady job, but not today

Two kids, no tricks, only rich in time
Never look back, follow every moment we've got


【独立民谣】蒋明《你好陌生人》

陌城,陌路,陌生人……旅行中我们一路遇见,一路失散。最容易令人感到温暖和惊喜的是陌生人;我们的想法和感受,有一天将会被某个陌生人一语道破。最让人感到失落和惆怅也是陌生人;分手后便匿迹天涯,在彼此的轨迹上再无交集。

你好,陌生人,感谢曾经的相遇,愿你在尘世获得幸福。再见,陌生人,相拥祝福就好,各自的世界,不必打扰。

这是写给陌生人的一封充满善意与祝福的书信。整首编曲悠扬而富于律动,手风琴与吉他的互动带来浓郁的异域情调及怀旧氛围。

《你好陌生人》

陌生人 你为何忧伤
我还静静地坐在你身旁
如果爱你能让你快乐那我就爱你
像清晨的葡萄
酿成醉人的酒啊

陌生人 你不要忧伤
谁没有年少时候倔强的坚强
我们是一群没有翅膀想飞翔的人
莫不是跌得灰头土脸
然后认输

啦啦啦……啦啦啦
唔……陌生人

陌生人 已无谓忧伤
其实神早已让我们看过了结局
只是每个人都以为自己是与众不同
就算是一粒尘埃
也不愿混迹于泥土

陌生人 请笑着忧伤
我相信这世界远胜于天堂
我们憎恨的一切和我们原谅的一切
让我们经历了遗憾
学会了辽阔

啦啦啦……啦啦啦
唔……陌生人

陌生人 旅途的陌生人
是否你知道虚度时光的意义
风起于青萍之末
吹动往复的潮汐
你我去向的天堂 神却在归途

陌生人 聪明的陌生人
是否你已顿悟世间的虚无
有些石头是废墟
有些废墟是石头
你我坚持像一块滚石
不停留在原地

啦啦啦……啦啦啦
唔……陌生人

陌生人 别再说你的去向
此刻静静地坐在你身旁
如果一次梦就是一场与世别离
想你茉莉花白的身体
月亮般的忧伤

他们是一支森系民谣团,崇尚自然、舒适、返璞归真;慵懒的声音,轻快的班卓琴,带你走进自由的乡村生活。

【独立民谣】Roses and Gold - Robin Jackson

民谣的魅力,就在于不假涂饰而现出本色。用不着装腔作势,却荡漾起生活中质朴感人的涟漪。

Robin Jackson是非常低调的一个独立歌手,Google上找不到任何资料。他的歌大多都跟自然、阳光、乡村有关,托物寓意,细腻地感悟生命的真谛。 

《Roses and Gold》

Moonshine, oh cover me in moonshine,
月光,笼我在月光中,

Cause I’ve been singing these cowboy tears since we came to an end

这些孤独的歌谣
and ride into the story of a new sunrise
踏上寻觅全新日出的旅途了
And may our river of tears
让我们的泪水化作的河流
wash away all our fears
带走我们的忧惧
and make it perfectly clear
让我们的心无比澄净

Sweet pie, oh mama make me
小甜饼呀,妈妈快给我做
some sweet pie
一些小甜饼吧
fill it with whatever makes it better
随便加点什么,只要能让它更加美味
and will cause my eyes to dry

And I pray to mother mary,

take heed of the golden rule
遵从诤言
That you do unto me
让你待我
what I do unto you
一如我待你一往情深
and we both see it through
让我们俩都能坚持到旅途的尽头

Soft grace, oh cover me in soft grace

and I’ll fashion you a cup of forgiveness, gypsum, nettle and lace
而我将回馈你,以宽恕为基,荨麻为边的杯盏
Cause the poetry that you’ve

put inside my heart
把我的心里面
rattles like a ‘57 engine about to start
躁动有如57年的车头就要启动
Like a kite in the wind
就如同风中飘飞的风筝
I’m caught in a spin
我被牵系在转轮上
I’m out on a limb
孤立无援

Rain dance oh do a little rain dance
雨中起舞吧,让我们一起在雨中起舞
call in the clouds and thunder to
让雨云和惊雷
wash away this sorrowful trance
涤荡我们的悲哀和昏沉
And we’ll bath in rose petal fire
而我们将浸浴在玫瑰花瓣的火焰中
while the whill-o-whisps sing
当天使们低吟浅唱着
and purify our eyes with water
用圣泉之水涤净我们的双眸
from the holy spring
从神圣的春天
And in the days that were old
等到了时光老去的时刻
may the story that’s told
让这些低诉的往事
be may of Roses and Gold
成为馨香而珍贵的回忆

【电子民谣】虎子;王娟《两个人的旅行》

“像一个梦境的开始,就这样不经意地踱进了一个满是艳丽花朵的山谷,当你一个人还在惊异于这里的美丽和妙曼时,一只扑闪着翅膀的花碟已经悄无声息的蛀留在你的肩头,正睁着一双美丽的眼睛注视着你,询问你的来历。”

这张发行于2005年的《两个人的旅行 》由摩登天空下属的电子厂牌 GUAVA出品 ,收录了电子艺人虎子和民谣歌手王娟合作创作的八首作品。 编曲虎子在缓拍节奏中,加入了鼓、模拟鸟啼、虚拟化过的人声等多种声乐素材,增加了一份春日中万物重生的意气。

《两个人的旅行》

从哪里飘来的芬芳
带着羞怯我不住的张望

恍惚跟着风走了
恍惚我已经醒了

他在将我拥抱
他在将我围绕

像莲花开在你出现的地方
带着悸动和寂静的忧伤

像莲花最初的花蕾
映红心底的波澜

他在将我拥抱
他在将我围绕

【独立民谣】小猛《农夫渔夫》

低沉男声版《农夫渔夫》,给你不同于小清新童声的另一种感觉;打入心怀的旋律触动内心最柔软的角落。

小猛是一个非常低调的民谣歌手,少有人知道他就是《农夫渔夫》的原作者,也不知道他曾参与赵雷的《赵小雷》《吉姆餐厅》的专辑录制。小猛于2012年发行了第一张个人专辑《拾年北京》,将自己十几年的故事都揉进了这张作品里。

《农夫渔夫》

如果有一天我能够拥有一个大果园
我愿放下所有追求做个农夫去种田
每一个早晨我耕耘在绿野田园
每一个黄昏我守望在乡间的麦田
我会把忧虑都融化在夕阳里
让孤独的心等待秋收的欢喜

哦如果那个时候我身边没有女朋友
我不介意谁会来给我一个周末的问候
哦如果那个时候我依然牵着她的手
我们会幸福地坐上树枝头

如果有一天我能够拥有一条渔船
我愿放下所有执着做个渔夫住在海边
每一个早晨航行在晨曦的海面
每一个黄昏我遥望在无际的海云天
我会把思绪都消失在波涛里
让澎湃的心等待风雨后的平息

哦如果那个时候我身边没有女朋友
我不介意谁会来给我一个周末的问候
哦如果那个时候我依然牵着她的手
我们会幸福地坐上弯弯船头

哦如果那个时候我身边没有女朋友
我不介意谁会来给我一个周末的问候
哦如果那个时候我依然牵着她的手
我们会幸福地坐上弯弯船头

我们会停泊在爱人的码头

试听地址:Sudden Love

《Sudden Love》

V1
My heart is still here
Sometimes it disappears
Buried underneath the years
Bottled in fear
And when your sudden love appears
I find I’m nowhere near
Hidden deep and dark unclear
The number of tears

V2
My heart is saving its thoughts
Up for the sidewalks
And pockets are lonely with no one to talk
Over the walls
My feet have faltered and hands are distraught
Holding a heavy plot
As my heart reaches the door that it locked
I feel what’s been lost

CH
And the hardest part this time
Is knowing you might be right
And the hardest heart inside
Is hoping you might be mine

V3
Slowly my loneliness opens its eyes
Issues an alibi
There inside your hand where it tries
To push back aside
When the quiet speaks and we tremble inside
Feeble hearts revive
I can’t explain though I will not deny
What happened tonight

CH
And the hardest part this time
Is knowing you might be right
And the hardest heart inside
Is hoping you might be mine (2x)

【清新民谣】We Didn't Move a Muscle - ANT 

ANT是本籍瑞典的英国唱作人Antony Harding的化名,也是意大利独立唱片「Homesleep Records」旗下的一人乐队。简单的吉他,细腻柔和又带些慵懒的吟唱,让人一曲听完依旧弦犹在耳。

ANT于1988年便开始了自己的创作,不过直到98年才第一次在伦敦的12 Bar Club进行了一场小型的首演,与此同时开始担当Hefner的鼓手,没过多久便开始以“ANT”之名发行自己的个人专辑。

《We Didn't Move a Muscle》

Oh sitting in your room was the highlight of my life.
坐在你房间里,就已让我无限满足。
Yeah sitting in your room was the highlight of my life.
是的,坐在你房间里,就已让我无限满足。
And I know it didn't amount to much and I know it wasn't right,
虽清楚这并不能改变什么,也知道这样做不对,
But sitting in your room, oh that was the highlight of my life.
但坐在你房间里,就已给我无限满足。
Oh sitting next to you there was only one thing on my mind.
坐在你身边,是我此刻唯一想做的事。
Yeah sitting next to you there was only one thing on my mind.
是的,坐在你身边,是我此刻唯一想做的事。

And I know we didn't make it and I know it didn't feel right,
虽清楚这并不可能实现,也知道这样做不对,
but sitting next to you, oh there was only one thing on my mind.
但坐在你身边,是我此刻唯一想做的事。
And we didn't talk for hours, no, we didn't make a sound.
我们没有秉烛夜谈,我们甚至没发出任何声音;
No, we didn't move a muscle, no, we didn't fool around.
我们没有一丝动作,我们甚至没进行任何走动;
And we couldn't lift a conversation, up off of the ground.
我们没有开始话题,我们甚至没做出任何举动。
No, we didn't move a muscle, no, we didn't fool around.
我们没有一丝动作,我们甚至没进行任何走动;
No, we didn't move a muscle, no, we didn't fool around.
我们没有一丝动作,我们甚至没进行任何走动;
Oh sitting there with you, my heart was jumping inside.
但只要坐在你身边,我的心就已经狂跳不止。

我们无需一丝动作,我们也无需进行任何走动。

【乡村音乐】Mary's Boy Child - Charlie Landsborough

BBC TV如此评价爱尔兰乡村歌手Charlie Landsborough :"他是一瓶陈年美酒,拔出塞子的时候,你一定会知道你的等待是多么的值得。“

他有着一把无比动人的嗓音,醇厚柔润,温煦明朗。但和传统乡村的那种固定到似乎连发音、腔调都几乎一致的味道又有不同,他的音乐来得更民间,叙事体民谣在作品中最为常见。

Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible say
Mary's boy child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day

Hark now hear the angels sing
A new king born today

And man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day

Trumpets sound and angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day

While shepherds watched their flock by night
They see a bright new shining star
They hear a choir sing
Seemed to come from afar

Joseph and his wife, Mary
Came to Bethlehem that night
They found no place to bear her child
Not a single room was in sight

Hark, now hear the angels sing
A new king born today
And man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day

Trumpets sound and angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day

By and by they find a little nook
In a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark
Mary's little boy was born

Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible say
Mary's boy child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day

Hark now hear the angels sing
A new king born today
And man willlive for evermore
Because of Christmas Day

Trumpets sound and angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day

【独立民谣】马頔《大雁》

一人之间,山水江湖。马頔与后摇乐队“文雀”跨界融合,借“大雁”的意象为隐喻,阐述着以柔软本心遨游世界的人生哲学。

自古,大雁便被视为“五常俱全”的灵物,因其长幼有序、南迁北归、忠贞不渝,故常被喻为君子。在此雁群北归的时节,马頔洒脱自在地颂唱,抒说高远恣意的人生况味。

《大雁》

栖客万重 山摇地动
游者千呼 唤难与共
归途万里 生死相依
声势浩大 孤掌难鸣
未曾涂炭 愧对丛林
蝇营狗苟 分崩离析
三千世界 万象千愁
误上层楼 解愁皆稠
朝暮夕春 踏冬泥雪
风尘垂泪 悲合欢离
风餐露宿 思飞揽月
酣醉于世 秋夏不容
无奢千古 芳传后世
何惧万骨 枯罢无塚
不畏天阔 谄媚神仙
一人之间 山水江湖

一群大雁向南飞
一群大雁往北归
一群大雁向南飞
一群大雁往北归
一群大雁向南飞
一群大雁往北归
一群大雁南北来回
白首不惊风骨不危
朝暮夕春 踏冬泥雪
风尘垂泪 悲合欢离
风餐露宿 思飞揽月
酣醉于世 秋夏不容
无奢千古 芳传后世
何惧万骨 枯罢无塚
不畏天阔 谄媚神仙
一人之间 山水江湖
一群大雁向南飞
一群大雁往北归
一群大雁南北来回
白首不惊风骨不危

【爱尔兰民歌】My Boy Willie - The Irish Rovers

真正的音乐无所谓过时。当浮世的喧嚣化作微弱涣散的泡影,深情隽永的古老旋律经岁月淘洗,依旧生生不息,一直飘荡在空中。

The Irish Rovers(爱尔兰漂泊者)是一支唱着古老爱尔兰和苏格兰民谣的加拿大乐队,1963年成立于多伦多。乐队由Will Millar ,Jim Ferguson ,Wilcil McDowell ,George Millar ,Joe Millar 5人组成。其中三人是亲兄弟,另两人是他们的堂表兄弟。 他们自1971年起共出了6张专辑,而每一张专辑都坚持着原汁原味的爱尔兰民谣风格,歌唱着爱情、亲情与友谊。

【治愈女声】Bury My Head - Kate walsh

这是一首木吉他伴奏的民谣小品,如暖煦的微风拂面,让人瞬间回到干净无忧的年纪。Kate的嗓音有种说不出的透明感,清凉而纯净,还有一点专属青葱岁月的小小忧伤。

Kate Walsh,英国创作歌手,精通古典钢琴、吉他;18岁时获伦敦音乐学院取录,为了达成自制大碟的心愿,不惜搁置入读大学。直到23岁自制音乐大碟,击败了多名国际歌手荣登英国iTunes下载榜榜首。

《Bury My Head 》

Tip-toeing where you shine your light,
有你出现的地方我总是战战兢兢
Stealing my heart into the night,
入夜十分你偷走我的心
And springing it on me just when the time is right.
当我觉得该是我们相爱的时候,你却突然跟我说出
You told me about her and all the plans you're making,
你跟我讲起她,讲起你们所有的计划
Lost in the woods with two crumbs for taking.
我一个人颠沛流离迷失在森林里
Kate Walsh
凯特·沃尔什

Now I don't want to share
现在我不想同谁分享你
Your fingers through my hair.
你的手指穿过我的秀发
But if you keep calling my name,
但是如果你只是跟我道别
I'll bury my head in the sand hoping you'll stay.
我会成为躲进沙子的鸵鸟,只希望你能留下来
Why cant you be different from the rest?
为什么你也跟其他人一样?
Oh, won't you surprise me instead?
哦,为什么你不能给我惊喜?
I've had it up to here,
我的爱已至此
Please just be my darling, my dear.
亲爱的,请做我的爱人

Quivering like a leaf as we lay.
像一片叶子为我们奠定
I guess that I could share
我想我可以和她分享你
Your fingers through my hair.
你的手指穿过我的秀发
But if you keep calling her name,
但是如果你只是跟我道别
I'll bury my head in the sand hoping you'll change.
我会成为躲进沙子的鸵鸟,只希望你能改变决定
Why can't you be different from the rest?
为什么你也跟其他人一样?
Oh, won't you surprise me instead?
哦,为什么你不能给我惊喜?
I've had it up to here.
我的爱已至此
But, please just be my darling, my dear.
但是亲爱的,请做我的爱人
But, please just be my darling my dear..
但是亲爱的,请做我的爱人

【华语民谣】赵雷《无法长大》

原谅我不想长大的心,有一丝孩子气,不想遗忘曾深深铭记的人。

站在30岁的门槛,毕竟长大了,做事也不直接了。我无力拒绝复杂,无力抗拒浑浊; 承受欺骗,不断告别,习惯敷衍,学会伪装。我在笑呢, 其实影子在哭。

《无法长大》

我知道 我做的不对
我总是喜欢说说
对不起 我欠你太多的怀抱
总是觉得工作太忙
常常被冷眼灼伤
对不起 总是让你受委屈
人和人总是有差距
日子里总要遇难题
总是盼望太多 最后如不如意都被时间浇熄
哦 Baby 你说你不是很在意
多想和你游遍世界
那样活着才有意义
我知道你和我都不喜欢逃避
时光拿走了你的美丽
岁月带走了我的脾气
对不起 我还欠你一场婚礼
说着说着 我又开始不切实际
说着说着 我就醉在了你的怀里
三十岁的眼泪还流有青春余味
爱情是否能解除生活的狼狈
别要求太多 学着时间一样洒脱
哦 Baby 我性格不是这样的
婚姻会不会让我们感到乏味
那么就这样 不去理睬这浮躁的社会
既然无法长大 那就不要学着别人去挣扎
哦 Baby 但愿我们能相随
既然无法长大 那就不要学着别人去挣扎
哦 Baby 但愿我们能相随
我知道我做的不对
我只是有些疲惫
哦 Baby 别留我一个人睡

【独立民谣】李志《下雨》

小镇青年,总是面目模糊地出现在一眼望去没有亮色的逼仄街道中,在理想与现实的夹缝中艰难喘息。为了幻觉带有那么一丁点的美好,只有设法为并不满意的生活罩上一点雾气,一点诗意。

李志,1978年生于江苏省金坛市,东南大学工科肄业,民谣诗人,全能创作型歌手,独立音乐人。

《下雨》

下起了雨,你感到冷吗,
看到窗前迷人的黑色吗
忧伤的人,忧伤都写在脸上,
忧伤只是为了说谎
还是搞不懂,岁岁年年为了什么
上帝他死了,不能把你悄悄带走,
年轻的坟墓不在一起
下起了雨,慌乱中爬过的蚂蚁,
它的鼻子在寻找谁的气息
四季轮替,你觉得累吗,
面对黄昏你还有信心吗
还是搞不懂,忙忙碌碌为了什么
什么都别说,重复是你最好的选择
选择颠覆盛世的荒唐

无所事事,你站在雨里,
闭上眼睛也感觉不到力气
不能忘记,不能忘乎所以,
不能继续就这样沉下去
Hello
kitty,hello

下起了雨,在你的心里,
下起了雨,在你的怀里
下起了雨,在你的眼里,
下起了雨,在你的心里
下起了雨……
下起了雨……

【前卫民谣】Sprout And The Bean - Joanna Newsom

把竖琴这种幕后乐器作为歌曲主奏,Joanna Newsom也许是独特的存在。她的声线像受伤的孩子,敏感无辜忧伤;又略带诡异和甜蜜,像个不受约束的小精灵。

Joanna Newsom,1982年出生于美国内华达州的一个音乐家庭,7岁就开始学习凯尔特竖琴。2002年发行了第一张EP《Walnut Whales》,包含了两首经典曲目《Peach, Plum, Pear》与《The Fray》。2004年发行了正式专辑《The Milk-Eyed Mender》。她的每首歌都有一个故事,或叙事、或抒情,都是诗一般美妙。

《Sprout And The Bean》

I slept all day
Awoke with distaste
And I railed
And I raved
That the difference between
The sprout and the bean
It is a golden ring
It is a twisted string

And you can ask the counsellor
And you can ask the king
And I'll say the same thing
And it's a funny thing

Should we go outside
Should we go outside
Should we break some bread
Are you interested

And as I said
I slept as though dead
Dreaming seamless dreams
Of lead

When you go away
I am big-boned and fey
In the dust of the day
In the dirt of the day

And Danger! Danger!
Drawing near them was a white coat
And Danger! Danger!
Drawing near them was a broad boat
And the water! Water!
Running clear beneath a white throat
And the hollow chatter of the talking of the Tadpoles

Who know the outside
Should we go outside
Should we break some bread
Are you interested

【独立民谣】大乔小乔《星座》

大乔是二叔,小乔是侄女。录制这张专辑的时候,大乔(乔小刀)30岁,小乔(乔木楠)9岁。略带跑调的童声,让歌曲听起来更真诚,使人心静如溪流。 

和时下唱片公司出一张专辑动辄百万的制作经费相比,大乔小乔的这张发行于2007年的唱片成本低得惊人,连同录音、包装、制作,总共只花了一万元。甚至布制的封套都是大乔亲手印刷,小乔和奶奶踏缝纫机做出来的。

风在清风遇见你
悬在天湖上的云
两个星座遥望夜空
永远不能相逢

又是一轮月高升
云端那边的天
两个星座遥望夜空
永远不能相逢
两个星座遥望夜空

永远不能相逢


又是一轮月高升
云端那边的天
两个星座遥望夜空
永远不能相逢

【独立民谣】夏小虎《么么》

心爱的姑娘如花般含羞绽放,爱情在青涩中庄严的成长。来吧,姑娘!亲吻我的嘴呀,我要为你每天把歌唱!

夏小虎,1986年出生于江苏泰州兴化;独立民谣歌手,音乐制作人。代表作《逝年》、《北方的冬天不会冷》。 

《么么》

清晨阳光照在树上鸟儿在歌唱
邻居家的猫咪爬树上
天边的云彩 是一朵又一朵
美丽的彩虹挂在天空上
我心爱的姑娘 你陪在我身旁
我每天都在为你把歌唱
你亲吻我的嘴呀 你看着我的眼啊
我喜欢你笑起来的模样
清晨阳光照在树上鸟儿在歌唱
邻居家的猫咪爬树上
天边的云彩 是一朵又一朵

美丽的彩虹挂在天空上
我心爱的姑娘 你陪在我身旁
我每天都在为你把歌唱
你亲吻我的嘴呀 你看着我的眼啊
我喜欢你笑起来的模样
我心爱的姑娘 你陪在我身旁
我每天都在为你把歌唱
你亲吻我的嘴呀 你看着我的眼啊
我喜欢你笑起来的模样

雨中的氤氲,总会唤起心中丝丝的忧愁。托尔斯泰说:“忧来无方,窗外下雨,坐沙发,吃巧克力,读狄更斯,心情又会好起来,和世界妥协。”

Azure Ray是由MariaTaylor和OrendaFink两个女生组成的民谣组合;作品凄清的曲调加上迷幻气质的唱腔,流淌出一份淡淡的惆怅。歌里唱的Athens不是希腊雅典,而是她们的家乡美国佐治亚洲的大学城Athens. 

《Raining In Athens》

Still, I think of you, baby

尽管如此,我还是想起你,宝贝

And how I grew old with you then

那时我多么想和你白头偕老

And this summer,you'll call-maybe

这个夏天,你也许会打来电话

And act as if we were old friends

假装好像我们曾是老朋友

You'd say,'how are you,baby'

你会问,“你好吗,宝贝”

I'd say,'it's raining in Athens'

我会回答,“雅典正在下雨”

And to this day

直到今天
I nurse the fever

我都在自我疗伤

That spoiled my poor hear

那让我心乱如麻
And I've mastered the art of dealing

我已学会了艺术地处理

Slipping away without falling apart

在没有崩溃前默默离去

So when this summer,you call-maybe

所以这个夏天,你也许打来电话

And ask how I've been

问我一直以来怎样

I can be honest and answer plainly

我可以诚实坦然地回答你

'Since november,it's been raining'

“十一月以来,天一直在下雨”

《Disappear from View》

Like a curtain being drawn upon a room
You, disappear from view
Like the grey, edging out the blue
You, disappear from view.

And is it going to be
A long, hard winter?
Like clouds rolling in, of the sea
The way, the way you are to me
Like the leaves, darkening their hue
You, disappear from view.

And is it going to be
A long, hard winter?
You, disappear form view
You, disappear form view

【独立民谣】All This Talk Of Dreaming Is Fine And Sweet… - Lex Land

选自Lex Land发行于2008年的《Orange Days On Lemon Street》。这是她的首张专辑,Lex曾经在橘子郡的这条街住过。

Lex Land来自于南加州,有一副轻柔带点慵懒的嗓子。她的声线被拿来和Judy Garland, Rickie Lee Jones和Maria McKee相媲美。在查普曼大学学习声乐的期间,她开始自己写歌,并在卧室录制demo。被当地的制作人发掘之后,她的才华进一步表露。

《All This Talk Of Dreaming Is Fine And Sweet…》

Cant you see
You've used my own key on me
Now I'm slowly dying
Right to left

When your sleeping
Deeply enough
Do you ever find me
In our rest

Cause reading your past tense feelings
Is making me a bit to melancholy
If you want to let it be
Then please just go your own way without me

la da da da
da da, daa da, dadadaa
la da da da
da da, daa da, dadada

If i were a card you could carry me
Face down and forgotten in your bag
But still as it stands
I'm only the most sadly sentimental play thing you have

I cant fathom why this sounded quite so high
Only to cut me down
I cant imagine any scenery with looking eyes
Without you lingering around

la da da da
da da, daa da, dadadaa
la da da da
da da, daa da, hmmm
oooooooooooooo
oooooooo
oooooooooooooo
oooooooooooo

All this talk of dreaming
Is fine aaand sweet. . .
All this talk of dreaming
Is fine aaand sweet. . .

When time comes for waking
Who's face do you wish to see
The wolf running rampant
Or the gate keeper on his knees

la da da da
da da, daa da, dadadaa
la da da da
da da, daa da...

【独立民谣】Cold Winter Morning -  River Crombie

德国民谣音乐人River Crombie发行于2011年的专辑《Time Beyond Me》(超越我的时间)。

轻雾缭绕的冬晨,洁白的雪花静静的飘落,将世间的一切污秽都掩盖起来。吟游诗人独自走在无垠旷野,沉醉于心灵的安静。温柔而质朴的声音,摹画冬的恬静与宁和,清冷与温暖。

《Cold Winter Morning》

I can hear the wind of a cold winter morning
听拂晓冷冬寒风
Covering the ground undisturbed by the night
夜晚覆盖大地
A blanket lying softly painted in a moment
如一条毯子轻轻覆盖
Waiting for the day to rise
等待一天的开始
Everything will come let it flow with the water
一切都会让河水带走
Underneath the moon we'll be one again
月光洒在身上,我们将再次

Letting down the curtain closing the door
放下窗帘,关上门
Is it that we see no more
看不到月光的皎洁
Beyond your aching
忍住疼痛
Beyond your world
超越你的世界
Throwing all your hope into the wild
把所有希望抛向野外
Nowhere do you feel at home
没有地方能给你家一样的感觉
Looking out and through an old thought I held to
望着窗外,古老的思想涌上心头
Could it be I feel too deep in my bones
可能是深深地在我骨子里
There is not a day that I won't be thinking
没有一天我不会去想
Clear me of the earthly ways
抛掉世俗的眼光
Older with the years all you find is tomorrow
与你所发现的一切都是明天
Walking through your town as the people come and go
来来走走,
Learning to be calm while life takes your further
当生活需要你时,学会静下心来
Along with everything you know
逐渐,你将知道一切
Beyond your aching
忍住疼痛
Beyond your world
超越你的世界
Throwing all your hope into the wild
把所有希望抛向野外
Nowhere do you feel at home
没有地方能给你家一样的感觉
Nowhere do you feel at home
没有地方能给你家一样的感觉
Nowhere do you feel at home
没有地方能给你家一样的感觉
Nowhere do you feel at home
没有地方能给你家一样的感觉

【民谣摇滚】The Palace Of Versailles - Al Stewart

创作歌手的黄金时代是在上世纪六七十年代,民谣和流行摇滚互相繁衍和杂交的时期。鲍勃•迪伦无疑是Folk Rock的先锋,他直接影响了许多同时代的音乐人,投身于这股风潮。

苏格兰民谣歌手阿尔•史都华(Al Stewart)在70年代的英国民谣领域独树一帜。他的歌曲以叙事性和想象力取胜,主题总也离不开自省、敏感、浪漫和忏悔;其特有的知性与从容,使你如同沐浴在伦敦的菲菲细雨之中。

《The Palace Of Versailles》

The wands of smoke are rising
From the walls of the Bastille
And through the streets of Paris
Runs a sense of the unreal
The Kings have all departed
There servants are nowhere
We burned out their mansions
In the name of Robespierre
And still we wait
To see the day begin
Our time is wasting in the wind
Wondering why

Wondering why, it echoes
Through the lonely palace of Versailles
Inside the midnight councils
The lamps are burning low
On you sit and talk all through the night
But there's just no place to go
And Bonaparte is coming
With his army from the south
Marat your days are numbered
And we live hand to mouth
While we wait
To see the day begin
Our time is wasting in the wind
Wondering why
Wondering why, it echoes
Through the lonely palace of Versailles
The ghost of revolution
Still prowls the Paris streets
Down all the restless centuries
It wonders incomplete
It speaks inside the cheap red wine
Of cafe summer nights
Its red and amber voices
Call the cars at traffic lights
Why do you wait
To see the day begin
Your time is wasting in the wind
Wondering why
Wondering why, it echoes
Through the lonely palace of Versailles
Wondering why, it echoes
Through the lonely palace of Versailles


【独立民谣】The Dream - Shannon Stephens

Shannon Stephens是来自美国西雅图的独立歌手,1998年前为Marzuki乐队的主唱。在1999年时,和之前乐队的另一成员一起开始了单飞的音乐生涯。

Shannon Stephens自称并不是一个真正的艺人,仅仅是一个音乐爱好者,一个与自己的丈夫、女儿一起幸福生活的人。她会做一手好菜,与邻居和善地相处。正是这种从生活中积累酝酿出来的音乐,才更耐听,让浮躁的心沉静下来。

《The Dream》

Oh, let that dream never come true.
让那个梦永不实现
Oh, let that dream never come true.
让那个梦永不实现
I couldn't sleep until I held you.
若非抱着你我无法入睡
I watched the clock and waited for you
我看着钟表等待着你
until I heard a noise in your room.
直到我听到你房间里的声音
I curled my whole body around you.
我在你身边蜷缩起来

Lord, let that dream never come true.
上帝 让那个梦永不实现
Lord, let that dream never come true.
上帝 让那个梦永不实现
Because in the dream, I took my eyes off you
因为在梦里 我将视线从你身上移开
and in the dream, I nearly lost you.
在梦里 我几乎失去你
And terrible things that I cannot mention.
还有一些我无以言表的可怕的事
If you had only had my protection.
若你只有我的保护
I was about to kill for you
我要为你而杀戮
I was about to be killed too
我也将会被杀害
when I awoke, milk letting down,
当我醒来 放下牛奶
rage like a wave crashing around.
愤怒像波浪般破坏周围
I won't let that dream ever come true.
我不会让那个梦实现
I'll make myself a wall around you.
我会在你四周为我建筑壁堡

【黑暗民谣】Prepare for Disappointment  - Matt Elliott

 【独立民谣】五条人《初恋》

这是一首“新闻民谣”,五条人在新闻素材基础上进行了再创造,不动声色的讲述了一个悲剧的来龙去脉。

故事源于去年6月的一条新闻“发现初恋已为人妻,男子悲伤过度驾车撞上高架桥”。五条人偶然间看到了这则新闻,旋即被这则新闻中主人公戏剧化的命运所打动。

歌曲采用九十年代流行歌的架构方式,并以大量的和弦为表现手段,欢畅苦涩、至情至性。

《初恋》

一辆货车撞上了高架桥 卡在桥墩里面
一名年轻的男子 抱头痛哭
他闯南走北了很多年终于挣到了钱
回到家乡想找回他的初恋
啦啦啦,啦啦啦
嘿 我的朋友 我祝你一切顺利 生活愉快
嘿 我的朋友 明天的太阳依然为你而升起来

女友的家已经拆迁 家乡也变了模样
得知她早已嫁人 他感到伤心难过
他开着货车离开县城 想去海边吹吹风
恍惚之间所有往事 都涌上心头
啦啦啦,啦啦啦
嘿 我的朋友 我祝你一切顺利 生活愉快
嘿 我的朋友 明天的太阳依然为你而升起来

《嘎嘣跳》

你咽下最后一口无情的拉斐
你还期待你的男神为你陶醉
在那些骤风暴雨袭来的黑夜
你还是没有学会安静的入睡

你说你早已习惯寂寞的滋味
我知道其实你也想找个人陪
你把最美的心情留在了大理
你说你喜欢人民路九月的风

可是你知道吗 我亲爱的姑娘
这个世上还有多少人和你一样
你所说的孤独 理所当然
因为我们生来就是这样平凡

我闭上双眼 感受你的脉搏
它清晰的就像你胸口的钻石
请别问我是否还有什么遗憾
不如抬头 看一看繁星满天

可是你知道吗 我亲爱的姑娘
这个世上还有多少人和我们一样
你所说的孤独 理所当然
因为我们生来就是这样平凡

可是你知道吗 我亲爱的姑娘
那些虚情假意的人只剩下皮囊
可又能怎样啊 自珍自重吧
至少还有懂你的人给你光芒

可又能怎样啊 且行珍惜吧
至少还有爱你的人为你歌唱

【华语音乐】胡德夫《撕裂》

「被贪婪野心恶意涂改的历史,早已模糊了原貌。众目睽睽之下,乱世里苟活的老兵,一再被命运反复蹂躏鞭笞,被扭曲价值粗暴撕裂着。

《撕裂》由剧场导演、诗人钟乔填词,郑捷任谱曲;胡德夫自弹自唱One Take录制。记录飘零一生无法归乡的台湾老兵,也呐喊出深感体制被撕裂、家国被撕裂、族群被撕裂的悲恸。」

胡德夫,出生于台湾台东的原住民民歌手。在20世纪70年代,胡德夫和杨弦、李双泽推动被称为整个华语流行音乐启蒙运动的“民歌运动”。

《撕裂》

撕裂我吧,撕裂我难堪的过去,
撕裂我吧,撕裂我沉没的现在。
他们说我没有过去,
我的过去已沉没,沉默像一条搁浅的船,
所以我去海边看自己,所以我被海洋给封锁,
所以我在家里看夕阳,所以我被夕阳给包围。

请问屋簷上还有风雨吗?
请问风雨中还有旗帜吗?
请问旗帜上还有风采吗?
请问风采中还有我在吗?

撕裂我吧,撕裂我不安的身体,
撕裂我吧,撕裂我飘荡的灵魂。
我不再问,我不再问你,
如果你不浇熄我,
我就像一把火烧尽你──
撕裂我吧!

请问屋簷上还有风雨吗?
请问风雨中还有旗帜吗?
请问旗帜上还有风采吗?
请问风采中还有我在吗?
撕裂我吧,撕裂我不安的身体,
撕裂我吧,撕裂我飘荡的灵魂。
我不再问,我不再问你,
如果你不浇熄我,
我就像一把火烧尽你──
撕裂我吧!

【阴暗民谣】The Failing Song - Matt Elliott

黑暗民谣又叫阴暗民谣(darkfolk),曲调大多抑郁悲伤;创作者一般都有着某种中世纪的情结。这首《失败的歌》,Elliott继续以他以往的风格演唱,含糊不清,却又有一种受于压迫的感觉。

Matt Elliott(马特·艾略特),来自英国Bristol的阴郁民谣歌手;Linda's Strange Vacation/The Third Eye Foundation乐队主脑。

《The Failing Song》

As youths we used to talk at night
就像我们年轻时的彻夜长谈
Of the joys that life was going to bring our way
那些本应被生活置于我们生命中的快乐
And the failures of our forebears
那些我们前人所犯下的错误
Were as clear to us as the cold light of day
对我们如同白昼冷光一样清晰
But now those days are dead and gone
但是现在,那些日子已经死去消失
And the future that we had is now the past
而我们本拥有的未来现在已经成为过去

And it's cobwebs that we cling to
而我们紧抓着只是一些蛛网
Our aspirations turned to ashes in our hands
我们的渴望在我们手中化为了灰烬


【英伦民谣】Be Not So Fearful - Bill Fay

美剧《行尸走肉》第四季第15集片尾音乐,选用了英国老牌创作歌手Bill Fay的《Be Not So Fearful》。

Bill Fay是一位非常神秘和低产的民谣歌手。他在70年代并没有什么名气,在Donovan的经纪人Peter Eden的帮助下出了一些单曲和专辑,反响平平。出人意料的是,Bill Fay低调潜伏近40年之后,于2010年推出了一张精选作品《Still Some Light》,引起了乐界轰动,评家推崇备至。

《Be Not So Fearful》

Be not so nervous
Be not so frail
Someone watches you
You won't fail

Be not so nervous
Be not so frail
Be not so nervous
Be not so frail

Be not so sorry
For what you have done
You must forget them now
It's done

And when you wake up
You will find that you can run
Be not so sorry
For what you have done

Be not so fearful
Be not so pale
Someone watches you
You won't leave the rails

Be not so fearful
Be not so pale
Be not so fearful
Be not so pale

You must forget them now
It's done

And when you wake up
You will find that you can run
Be not so sorry
For what you have done

Be not so sorry
For what you have done
