Shine on



曾當過軍人,去過科索沃戰場,經歷戰火與死別痛苦的James Blunt,出新碟.
" All the lost souls"

他上一張碟中的" You 're beautiful" ,令人醉倒. 尤其MV,是我近年最喜愛的MV,那種簡約,蒼茫,孤寂,蕭索... 無話可說. 我以前的blog也曾寫過這首歌的MV.

曾把" You 're beautiful" msn 給幾位朋友看,印象中,只有一位朋友非常喜歡,而且以佛家的道理去詮釋這套MV.(她是出家人) 有趣有趣..


今次新碟的歌,坦白說不及上一張精彩,但也不失味道. 內容仍然觸及人生的生老病死,愛情與失落,以及最後一首,獻給科索沃的孩子" I can't hear the music" . 挺有意思.

碟內一首歌Shine On , 我挺喜歡. Folk rock + British pop 風格.

歌詞動人. 當然,不能少的是James 那把幽而不怨,真摰又帶點鄉謠浪人的聲線,還有說不盡的深情味道,十分耐聽.

Shine on by James Blunt

Are they calling for our last dance?
I see it in your eyes. In your eyes.
Same old moves for a new romance.
I could use the same old lies, but I'll sing,
Shine on, just, shine on!
Close your eyes and they'll all be gone.
They can scream and shout that they've been sold out,
But it paid for the cloud that we're dancing on.
So shine on. Just shine on!
With your smile just as bright as the sun.
'Cause they're all just slaves to the gods they made
But you and I just shone.
Just shone.
And when silence greets my last goodbye,
The words I need are in your eyes, and I'll sing.
Shine On, just, shine on!
Close your eyes and they'll all be gone.
They can scream and shout that they've been sold out,
But it paid for the cloud that we're dancing on.
So shine on. Just shine on!
With your smile just as bright as the sun.
'Cause they're all just slaves to the gods they made,
But you and I just shone.
Just shone.
