一輩子都想這麼聽下去之二:The Story by Brandi Carlile

Brandi Carlile

BMG海外行銷副總裁Ryan Wright強力推薦的女歌手Brandi Carlile, 一聽又叫我欲罷不能, 尤其是這首The Story, 詞曲皆美, 再配上Carlile自然不做作, 感情滿溢豐沛的歌聲唱腔, 讓我在這個舊金山豔陽高照, 熱度屢攀新高的盛夏天, 渾身起了雞皮疙瘩, 內心泛起幾許愁緒, 而且一顆心竟然有如被觸動情傷般的隱隱作痛, 和我身處的花香鳥鳴真實世界一整個的不搭軋! 可是, 這, 就是音樂的魅力, 這, 就是歌者的本事, 音樂只是形式, 最終打動的還是情感。

Brandi Carlile沒有(至少到目前為止)驚人的音樂履歷, 來自華盛頓的她, 從小型現場巡迴演唱起家, The Story算是她的第二張專輯, 她選擇了現場演唱的形式錄製此專輯, 我覺得這點相當明智, 她可高可低, 時而低迴時而奔放不羈, 甚至有時瀕臨崩裂邊緣, 一種不完美到近乎完美的聲音, 感覺天生就是要在群眾裡才能大鳴大放的, 除了令人迷醉的嗓音之外, 我也喜歡她游走在搖滾民謠鄉村的曲風。

一起來欣賞吧!

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
Yeah you do and I was made for you

You see the smile that’s on my mouth
Is hiding the words that don’t come out
And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed
They don’t know my head is a mess
No, they don’t know who I really am
And they don’t know what I’ve been through but you do
And I was made for you…

    gosh, browse through the articles: it is amazing that we share so many “obsessions”: anthropologies, ok, i love macaroon and do like paulette a lot (my trick is to taste only a little tiny bite each time —-). and i listen Regina Spektor too! Far is pretty good.

    the lyric of this song reminds me of Faye Wang’s 呼吸 which is even more poetic, i think.

    ps. typing in chinese will take me forever, that is why—–
