 【前言】:好久沒有寫"經典一首歌"這個主題了,趁著最近比較有時間,好好的來寫一些經典的專輯、歌曲。

【歌手簡介】:這次,我所介紹的這張專輯『O』,我想大多數的人並不是很熟悉,甚至連這位歌手的名字都沒聽過,但提到其中的一首歌曲『The Blower's Daughter』,大家應該不陌生。這位演唱者叫做「Damien Rice」:他是一位愛爾蘭創作歌手兼音樂家,創作能力驚人;於1990年代出道,當年是搖滾樂團Juniper的一員,後來因為唱片公司PolyGram(寶麗金)對他們音樂的介入與干涉,他決定離開樂團,去追求他的音樂夢想。到目前為止,他總共發行兩張實體專輯─『O』(2002)和『9』(2006);兩張Live專輯─『Live at Fingerprints Warts & All』(2007) 和『Live from the Union Chapel』(2007)。其中,『The Blower's Daughter』因為成為電影「Closer(偷情)」的片尾曲,而聲名大噪。

【專輯導聽】:這是一張適合在寧靜的環境下,沒有任何干擾、獨自一人面對自我時聆聽的專輯;它沉靜、低沉到令人情緒波動、令人無法自拔,也同時令人平靜。整張專輯的曲風偏向Folk(民謠)揉合Acoustic, Indie rock,它回歸音樂最純樸、最簡單的元素,帶領聽眾聽到自己內心深處的聲音!Damien Rice的嗓音和創作聽起來很舒服,也很smooth,但其中蘊含的是濃烈的傷感與反思;情緒是錯綜複雜的,但音樂、歌詞卻單純的不能再單純,現在,就讓我們一起徜徉在『The Blower's Daughter』的低鳴、哀愁;『Cannonball』的清新、動盪;『Volcano』的慵懶、沉靜;『Delicate』的緩慢、悲傷;『Cheers Darlin'』的真實、醉意;『Older Chests』的自然、和諧;『Amie』的緩和、純粹;『Eskimo』的宏大、平復,整段的情緒是層層相扣、細膩感人,彷彿你就是主角、感同身受。

      用心、仔細的體會音樂中一絲一毫的情緒波動,就像是在閱讀一篇故事,或是體驗一段真實人生,當我們對演唱者、創作者的音樂產生認同,而有所感動時,他們的音樂才有生存的價值,而我們對於這樣的音樂也應該更加珍惜,因為這些音樂對於創作者而言,是心血的結晶,同時,得來不易...

~《The Blower's Daughter》~

 Written by Damien Rice (featured in the film "Closer")

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

And so it is
Just like you said it should be
We'll both forget the breeze
Most of the time
And so it is
The colder water
The blower's daughter
The pupil in denial

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

Did I say that I loathe you?
Did I say that I want to
Leave it all behind?

I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind...
My mind... my mind...
'Til I find somebody new

 

~《Cannonball》~

Written by Damien Rice (featured in the film "In Good Company")

Still a little bit of your taste in my mouth
Still a little bit of you laced with my doubt
Still a little hard to say what's going on

Still a little bit of your ghost your witness
Still a little piece of your face I haven't kissed
You step a little closer each day
Still I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannonball

Still a little bit of your song in my ear
Still a little bit of your words I long to hear
You step a little closer to me
So close that I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannon

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to cry
So come on courage!
Teach me to be shy
'Cause it's not hard to fall
And I don't want to scare her
It's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna lose
It's not hard to grow
When you know that you just don't know

~《Volcano》 ~

Written by Damien Rice

Don't hold yourself like that
You'll hurt your knees
I kissed your mouth and back
But that's all I need
Don't build your world around volcanoes melt you down

What I am to you is not real
What I am to you you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I'll ask for the sea

Don't throw yourself like that
In front of me
I kissed your mouth your back
Is that all you need?
Don't drag my love around volcanoes melt me down

What I am to you is not real
What I am to you you do not need
What I am to you is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I'll ask for what I give to you
Is just what i'm going through
This is nothing new
No no just another phase of finding what I really need
Is what makes me bleed
And like a new disease she's still too young to treat
Volcanoes melt me down
She's still too young
I kissed your mouth
You do not need me

~《Delicate》~

Written by Damien Rice (used in the TV series "House" & "Lost")

~《Cheers Darlin'》~

Written by Damien Rice

Cheers darlin'
Here's to you and your lover boy
Cheers darlin'
I got years to wait around for you
Cheers darlin'
I've got your wedding bells in my ear
Cheers darlin'
You give me three cigarettes to smoke my tears away

And I die when you mention his name
And I lied, I should have kissed you
When we were running the reins

What am I darlin'?
A whisper in your ear?
A piece of your cake?
What am I, darlin?
The boy you can fear?
Or your biggest mistake?

Cheers darlin'
Here's to you and your lover man
Cheers darlin'
I just hang around and eat from a can
Cheers darlin'
I got a ribbon of green on my guitar
Cheers darlin'
I got a beauty queen
To sit not very far from here

I die when he comes around
To take you home
I'm too shy
I should have kissed you when we were alone

hat am I darlin'?
A whisper in your ear?
A piece of your cake?
What am I, darlin?
The boy you can fear?
Or your biggest mistake?

Oh what am I? What am I darlin'?
I got years to wait
...

~《Older Chests》~

Written by Damien Rice

Older chests reveal themselves
Like a crack in a wall
Starting small, and grow in time
And we always seem to need the help
Of someone else
To mend that shelf
Too many books
Read me your favourite line

Papa went to other lands
And he found someone who understands
The ticking, and the western man's need to cry
He came back the other day, you know
Some things in life may change
And some things
They stay the same

Like time, there's always time
On my mind
So pass me by, I'll be fine
Just give me time

Older gents sit on the fence
With their cap in hand
Looking grand
They watch their city change
Children scream, or so it seems,
Louder than before
Out of doors, and into stores with bigger names
Mama tried to wash their faces
But these kids they lost their graces
And Daddy lost at the races too many times

She broke down the other day, yeah you know
Some things in life may change
But some things they stay the same

Like time, there's always time
On my mind
So pass me by, I'll be fine
Just give me time
Time, there's always time
On my mind
Pass me by, I'll be fine
Just give me time
 

~《Amie》~

Written by Damien Rice

Nothing unusual nothing strange
Close to nothing at all

The same old scenario the same old rain
and there's no explosions here

Then something unusual something strange
comes from nothing at all

I saw a spaceship fly by your window
did you see it disappear?

Amie come sit on my wall and read me the story of Of O
Tell it like you still believe that the end of the century brings a change for you and me

Nothing unusual nothing's changed
Just a little older that's all

You know when you've found it there's something I've learned
'cause you feel it when they take it away hey hey

Then something unusual something strange
comes from nothing at all

But I'm not a miracle and you're not a saint
just another soldier on a road to nowhere

Amie come sit on my wall and read me the story of O
tell it like you still believe that the end of the century
brings a change for you and me

Amie come sit on my wall and read me the story of o
tell it like you still believe that the end of the century
brings a change for you and me

~《Eskimo》~

Written by Damien Rice

Tiredness fuels empty thoughts
I find myself disposed
Brightness fills empty space
In search of inspiration
Harder now with higher speed
Washing in on top of me
So I look to my Eskimo friend
I look to my Eskimo friend
I look to my Eskimo friend
When I'm down, down, down

Rain it wets muddy roads
I find myself exposed
Tapping doors, but irritate
In search of destination
Harder now with higher speed
Washing in on top of me
So I look to my Eskimo friend
I look to my Eskimo friend
I look to my Eskimo friend
When I'm down, down, down.

When I'm down, down, down
When I'm down, down, down

kosketa minua
älä käsilläsi
vaan niin että tunnen sinut

Touch me
Not with your hands
But the way I can feel you

kosketa minua
älä käsilläsi
mutta sielussasi

Touch me
Not with your hands
But within your soul


minä kaipaan eskimo-ystävääni

I look to my eskimo friend

  • Damien Rice跟Lisa Hannigan合作的好多首歌也很不錯!!
    "9 Crimes"空靈悽涼,MV讓我聯想到伊藤潤二...
    "Unplayed Piano"曲子優美到不行,Lisa合聲好棒~~
    "Rootless Tree"漸漸推升至激昂暴力(?)的方向,
    總之,Damien Rice真是個天才!!!!!
