    Aïcha by Cheb Khaled 

    Comme si je n’existais pas,
    像沒有我這個人一樣
    elle est passée à côté de moi
    她就這樣走過我身旁
    Sans un regard, reine de Saba,
    瞧也不瞧一眼,像古代的示巴女王
    j’ai dit, Aïcha, prends, tout est pour toi
    我說,愛紗,來吧,這些全是妳的

    Voici, les perles, les bijoux,
    這裡,有珍珠、有寶石
    aussi l’or autour de ton cou
    還有黃金做成的項鍊
    Les fruits, biens mûrs au goût de miel,
    還有水果,嚐起來可像是蜂蜜一樣
    ma vie, Aicha si tu m’aimes!
    都給你,愛紗,只要妳愛我的話

    J’irai où ton souffle nous mène,
    我會去往任何妳的呼吸引領我去的地方
    dans les pays d’ivoire et d’ébène
    那會是一塊堆滿象牙與檀木的國土
    J’effacerais tes larmes, tes peines,
    我會拂去妳的淚水與哀傷
    rien n’est trop beau pour une si belle
    世界上再也沒有事物比妳更漂亮

    Aïcha, Aïcha écoute-moi,
    愛紗、愛紗,聽我說
    Aïcha, Aïcha t’en vas pas,
    愛紗、愛紗,不要走
    Aïcha, Aïcha regarde moi,
    愛紗、愛紗,看著我
    Aïcha, Aïcha reponds-moi
    愛紗、愛紗,給我回答

    Je dirais les mots les poèmes,
    我會為妳說出詩一般的句子
    je jouerais les musiques du ciel,
    我會為妳演奏天籟一般的音樂
    je prendrais les rayons du soleil,
    我會奪去太陽的光芒
    pour élairer tes yeux de rêves
    用來將你的眼睛照亮

    Oooh! Aïcha, Aïcha écoute-moi,
    愛紗、愛紗,聽我說
    Aïcha, Aïcha t’en vas pas
    愛紗、愛紗,不要走

    Elle a dit: “Garde tes trésors,
    她說,收好你的財寶吧
    moi, je vaux mieux que tout ça.
    我不值得你這麼做
    Des barreaux sont des barreaux même en or
    黃金做的牢籠依然是牢籠
    Je veux les mêmes droits que toi
    我只想要每天都享有與你相同的
    Et du respect pour chaque jour,
    權利以及尊重
    moi je ne veux que l’amour”
    我需要的只有愛

    نبغيك عايشة ونموت عليك
    我愛你,愛紗,至死不渝
    هادي سيدة حياتي وحبي
    妳是我生命與愛情的主宰
    انت عمري وانت حياتي
    妳是我的歲月與一生
    تمنيت نعيش معك غير انت
    我要與妳在一起,我只要和妳在一起

    (以上翻譯來自 http://cocoa.zonble.net)

    Black Swan Song by Athlete 

    從2005年"Tourist"的"Wires"開始認識Athlete,超愛那張專輯的,每首都很順我的耳。

    最近聽到了他們的新歌"Black Swan Song",才發現從2005到今年,中間他們還又出了Beyond the Neighbourhood (2007)。

    這張我可是徹徹底底沒印象(XD)。

    好在最近因為買了HTC Hero後,有免費KKbox可用,上去找來了聽。聽過一次,初步印象還是Tourist讚。

    今年八月他們出了最新的專輯"Black Swan",主打歌之一,就是這首黑天鵝之歌。

    這是主唱Joel Pott以他祖父John Pott少校於二次世界大戰時參與的Arnhem一役為背景,寫成的歌。
    MV拍得很棒,很符合歌詞的意境,應該也有某種程度的魔幻寫實吧。

    I waded through the darkest fields you’d imaging
    Your pretty face sketched on the barrel of my gun

    And I know you’ll be the first to welcome me
    when I climb into eternity oh, oh
    Oh, oh

    The forest always kept us warm
    But it diesn’t feel like home any more
    And I know there’s bigger mountains where you are
    And a better climate for my heart oh, oh
    Oh, oh

    I’ve been racing the clock
    And I’ve run out of steam
    I am ready for my final symphony
    Oh my body is weak
    But my soul is still strong
    I am ready to rest in your arms

    Though many battles I have won
    I lost too many friends I could count on
    And I know
    They’ll be the first to welcome me
    When I parachute into eternity oh, oh
    Oh, oh

    I’ve been racing the clock
    And I’ve run out of steam
    I am ready for my final symphony
    Oh my body is weak
    But my soul is still strong
    I am ready to rest in your arms

    And the rain beat down on the rooftops
    But there was no sound
    There was no sound
    And all my friends and family carried me
    They carried me home
    Carried me home

    And the rain beat down on the rooftops
    But there was no sound
    There was no sound
    And all my friends and family carried me
    They carried me home
    Carried me home

    I’ve been racing the clock
    And I’ve run out of steam
    I am ready for my final symphony
    Oh my body is weak
    But my soul is still strong
    I am ready to rest in your arms

    Oh i’ve been racing the clock
    And I’ve run out of steam
    I am ready for my final symphony
    Oh my body is weak
    But my soul is still strong
    I am ready to rest in your arms oh, oh

    Album: Black Swan

    Year: 2009

    網路上還找到另一段小波特回到當年老波特戰場的影片
    Black Swan Story – Athlete – (43 mins) from Richard Edkins on Vimeo.  http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=7475133&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=0&color=&fullscreen=1

    至於歌名為何叫做黑天鵝咧?
    Athlete的主唱說,靈感應源自於Nassim Nicholas Taleb"黑天鵝效應(The Black Swan Theory)"這本書

    黑天鵝理論是這樣來的,以前的歐洲只有白天鵝,歐洲人從沒見過黑天鵝,「所有的天鵝都是白的」就成了一個沒有人懷疑的事實。
    一直到人們在澳洲發現黑天鵝,歐洲人的想法從此一百八十度翻轉,黑天鵝也變成了不吉利的象徵。
    這種翻轉,會造成人們心理很劇烈的震盪,因為「所有的天鵝都是白的」有數萬隻的白天鵝作證,但是要推翻它,只需要一隻黑天鵝就足夠了。
    也就是說,人們所習慣相信的信念、所樂觀看待的事件,有可能是錯的,而我們從未思考過「它是錯的」所造成的後果。
    人總是只相信他所想要的、他所預期的發展,以致於忽略了世界往往不按照我們的期待走,等到發生了一出乎意料的重大事件,我們原本賴以支撐的假設,便一夕之間全部崩潰(以上摘自阿特拉斯的部落格:全球金融風暴的蝴蝶效應與黑天鵝理論)。

    Joel Pott說,書上所言,生命中總是充滿了不可預期的變化,不管好或壞。就如同他們六年來的生活,充滿不可預期的高低起伏,不論是樂團或是個別成員,都經歷了生活中的喜樂悲傷。

    Love, Me by Collin Raye 

    在臉書facebook上看到有人分享這首歌,著實讓我心驚了一下。
    第一次聽到這首歌,是在一卷西洋情歌的合輯裡,時間點應該是在 1993~1995年間,當時我猶原是個慘綠少年。那張專輯大致上是以R&B、Soul或Hip Hop為主,鄉村曲風的這首歌被安排在B面倒數第二首的樣子,第一次聽就被吸引住了。看了歌詞更是深深被感動,1923年,一對不被父母祝福的情侶決定私奔到鄰近的城鎮,共度餘生。男的先到,女的沒出現,只留下一張紙條。上面就寫著副歌的歌詞。第二段一開始,才點出第一人稱敘事者是在什麼情況下,讀了這張字條。故事性強的歌詞總是比較罕見,是以我對這首歌超有印象。錄音帶不知道被我丟去哪,直到今天看到有人po出來,我才知道原來這首歌還有MV。就放上來留作紀念啦。
     

    I read a note my Grandma wrote back in 1923

    Grandpa kept it in his coat, and he showed it once to me

    He said, "Boy, you might not understand, but a long, long time ago,

    Grandma’s daddy didn’t like me none, but I love your Grandma so.



    We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together

    Get married in the first town we came to and live forever

    But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet instead

    I found this letter, and this is what it said :



    "If you get there before I do

    Don’t give up on me

    I’ll meet you when my chores are through

    I don’t know how long I’ll be



    But I’m not gonna let you down

    Darling wait and see

    And between now and then

    Til I see you again



    I’ll be loving you

    Love, Me."



    I read those words just hours before my Grandma passed away

    In the doorway of the church where me and Grandpa stopped to pray

    I know I’ve never seen him cry in all my fifteen years

    But as he said these words to her, his eyes fill up with tears



    "If you get there before I do

    Don’t give up on me

    I’ll meet you when my chores are through

    I don’t know how long I’ll be



    But I’m not gonna let you down

    Darling wait and see

    And between now and then

    Til I see you again



    I’ll be loving you

    Love, Me."

    You Found Me by The Fray 


    The Fray – You Found Me (official video)

    You Found Me

    I found God on the corner of First and Amistad
    Where the west was all but won
    All alone smoking His last cigarette
    I said where You been, He said ask anything
    Where were You when everything was falling apart
    All my days were spent by a telephone
    That never rang and all I needed was a call
    That never came to the corner of First and Amistad

    Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
    Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
    Why’d You have to wait, where were You, where were You
    Just a little late, You found me, You found me

    In the end everyone ends up alone
    Losing her, the only one who’s ever known
    Who I am who I’m not and who I want to be
    No way to know how long she will be next to me

    Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
    Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
    Why’d You have to wait, where were You, where were You
    Just a little late, You found me, You found me

    Early morning the city breaks and I’ve been calling for years and years
    You never left me no messages, You never send me no letters
    You got some kind of nerve taking all I want

    Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
    Lying on the floor, where were You, where were You

    Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
    Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
    Why’d You have to wait, where were You, where were You
    Just a little late, You found me, You found me
    Why’d You have to wait to find me, to find me

    The Older I Get by Skillet 

    The Older I Get
    Album: Comatose

    Artis: Skillet
    Year: 2006

    The walls between you and I
    Always pushing us apart
    Nothing left but scars fight after fight
    The space between our calm and rage
    Started growing shorter,
    Disappearing slowly day after day

    I was sitting there waiting in my room for you
    You were waiting for me too
    And it makes me wonder

    The older I get
    Will I get over it?
    It’s been way too long for the times we missed
    I didn’t know then it would hurt like this but I think
    The older I get
    Maybe I’ll get over it
    It’s been way too long for the times we missed
    I can’t believe it still hurts like this

    The time between those cutting words
    Built up our defenses
    Never made no sense it just made me hurt
    Do you believe that time heals all wounds?
    It started getting better
    But it’s easy not to fight when I’m not with you

    I was sitting there waiting in my room for you
    You were waiting for me too
    And it makes me wonder

    The older I get
    Will I get over it?
    It’s been way too long for the times we missed
    I didn’t know then it would hurt like this but I think
    The older I get
    Maybe I’ll get over it
    It’s been way too long for the times we missed
    I can’t believe it still hurts like this

    What was I waiting for
    I should’ve taken less and given you more
    I should’ve weathered the storm
    I need to say so bad
    What were you waiting for
    This could have been the best we’ve ever had

    The older I get
    Will I get over it?
    It’s been way too long for the times we missed
    I didn’t know then it would hurt like this but I think
    The older I get
    Maybe I’ll get over it
    It’s been way too long for the times we missed
    I can’t believe it still hurts like this
    Hurts like this

    I’m just getting older
    I’m not getting over you I’m trying to
    I wish it didn’t hurt like this
    It’s been way too long for the times we missed
    I can’t believe it still hurts like this

    I Am The Highway by Audioslave 

    年假在家,室外天冷又下雨,只能在家上網、聽音樂
    突然廣播放了這首突然廣播放了這首Audioslave (台灣譯做音魔合唱團) 的I Am The Highway
    讓我馬上想收拾行李跳上車流浪去也

    網路上找不到這首歌的MV,有的只有效果不好的Live版本
    Youtube裡有一個網友放上自己搬家(?)的過程配上這首歌
    應該是聲音最好的版本了。
       

    Pearls and swine bereft of me
    Long and weary my road has been
    I was lost in the cities
    Alone in the hills
    No sorrow or pity for leaving I feel
     
    (chorus)
    I am not your rolling wheels
    I am the highway
    I am not your carpet ride
    I am the sky
     
    Friends and liars don’t wait for me
    I’ll get on all by myself
    I put millions of miles
    Under my heels
    And still too close to you
    I feel
     
    (chorus)
    I am not your rolling wheels
    I am the highway
    I am not your carpet ride
    I am the sky
    I am not your blowing wind
    I am the lightning
    I am not your autumn moon
    I am the night

    The Beautiful Side Of Somewhere by THE WALLFLOWERS 


    Tomorrow is gonna make you cry
    It’s gonna to make you kneel
    Before it breaks you from inside
    Still pressing on
    Arm over arm
    Still trying to get both feet back onto the ground
    They are harvesting these fields in autumn.
    We’re different now than when we started

    I am ready to wake up
    There in the exodus
    On the beautiful side of somewhere baby

    There on the pavement
    Underneath the yellow moon
    I think of you
    And just how easily we bruise
    The folded address in my pocket i have stuffed
    Trying to believe for you
    That the bottom didn’t drop
    I am on the platform
    Covered with dust
    I pray they take the both of us

    I am ready to wake up
    There in the exodus
    On the beautiful side of somewhere baby
    I am ready to come down
    To see us both somehow
    On the beautiful side of somewhere someday

    Hey There Delilah by Plain White T’s 

    Hey there Delilah
    What’s it like in New York City

    I’m a thousand miles away
    But girl tonight you look so pretty
    Yes you do
    Times Square can’t shine as bright as you
    I swear it’s true

    Hey there Delilah
    Don’t you worry about the distance
    I’m right there if you get lonely
    Give this song another listen
    Close your eyes
    Listen to my voice it’s my disguise
    I’m by your side

    Oh it’s what you do to me
    Oh it’s what you do to me
    Oh it’s what you do to me
    Oh it’s what you do to me
    What you do to me

    Hey there Delilah
    I know times are getting hard
    But just believe me girl
    Someday I’ll pay the bills with this guitar
    We’ll have it good
    We’ll have the life we knew we would
    My word is good

    Hey there Delilah
    I’ve got so much left to say
    If every simple song I wrote to you
    Would take your breath away
    I’d write it all
    Even more in love with me you’d fall
    We’d have it all

    Oh it’s what you do to me
    Oh it’s what you do to me
    Oh it’s what you do to me
    Oh it’s what you do to me

    A thousand miles seems pretty far
    But they’ve got planes and trains and cars
    I’d walk to you if I had no other way
    Our friends would all make fun of us
    and we’ll just laugh along because we know
    That none of them have felt this way
    Delilah I can promise you
    That by the time we get through
    The world will never ever be the same
    And you’re to blame

    Hey there Delilah
    You be good and don’t you miss me
    Two more years and you’ll be done with school
    And I’ll be making history like I do
    You’ll know it’s all because of you
    We can do whatever we want to
    Hey there Delilah here’s to you
    This ones for you

    Oh it’s what you do to me
    Oh it’s what you do to me
    Oh it’s what you do to me
    Oh it’s what you do to me
    What you do to me.

    It’s Not Over by Daughtry 

    I was blown away.
    What could I say?
    It all seemed to make sense.
    You’ve taken away everything,
    And I can’t deal with that.
    I try to see the good in life,
    But good things in life are hard to find.
    We’ll blow it away, blow it away.
    Can we make this something good?
    Well, I’ll try to do it right this time around.

    Let’s start over.
    I’ll try to do it right this time around.
    It’s not over.
    ‘Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground.
    This love is killing me,
    But you’re the only one.
    It’s not over.

    Taken all I could take,
    And I cannot wait.
    We’re wasting too much time
    Being strong, holding on.
    Can’t let it bring us down.
    My life with you means everything,
    So I won’t give up that easily.
    I’ll blow it away, blow it away.
    Can we make this something good?
    ‘Cause it’s all misunderstood.
    Well, I’ll try to do it right this time around.

    Let’s start over.
    I’ll try to do it right this time around.
    It’s not over.
    ‘Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground.
    This love is killing me,
    But you’re the only one.
    It’s not over.

    We can’t let this get away.
    Let it out, let it out.
    Don’t get caught up in yourself.
    Let it out.

    Let’s start over.
    I’ll try to do it right this time around.
    It’s not over.
    ‘Cause a part of me is dead and in the ground.
    This love is killing me,
    But you’re the only one.
    It’s not over.

    Let’s start over.
    It’s not over, yeah…
    This love is killing me,
    But you’re the only one.
    It’s not over.

    有在看American Idols的人,應該都對這位仁兄有印象吧?
    Chris Daughtry參加第五屆的American Idols,雖然沒有拿到冠軍,不過卻相當受到注目。他在節目中翻唱Fuel的Hemorrhage (In My Hands),還讓走了主唱Brett Scallions的Fuel一度想找他去當主唱。
    這幾年一直非常非常喜歡Post-Grunge,這張同名專輯正是這樣的曲風。Chris Daughtry的聲線類似Staind的Aaron Lewis、Seether的Shaun Morgan,以及前Creed的Scott Stapp,是我愛的那種音色:低調、渾厚、粗曠中帶感性。這首It’s Not Over今年初到年尾一直在Rockland USA狂播,現在我也把它拿來我的SPACE轟炸。

    Blind by Lifehouse 

    I was young but I wasn’t naive
    I watched helpless as he turned around to leave
    and still I have the pain I have to carry
    a past so deep that even you could not bury if you tried

    after all this time
    I never thought we’d be here
    never thought we’d be here
    when my love for you was blind
    but I couldn’t make you see it
    couldn’t make you see it
    that I loved you more than you’ll ever know
    a part of me died when I let you go

    I would fall asleep
    only in hopes of dreaming
    that everything would be like is was before
    but nights like this it seems are slowly fleeting
    they disappear as reality is crashing to the floor

    after all this time
    I never thought we’d be here
    never thought we’d be here
    when my love for you was blind
    but I couldn’t make you see it
    couldn’t make you see it
    that I loved you more than you’ll ever know
    a part of me died when I let you go

    after all this time
    would you ever wanna leave it
    maybe you could not believe it
    that my love for you was blind
    but I couldn’t make you see it
    couldn’t make you see it
    that I loved you more than you will ever know
    a part of me died when I let you go
    and I loved you more than you’ll ever know
    a part of me dies when I let you go
