音乐不死

看到左岸上新出的一篇《遥望海阔天空》,深有感触。知道Beyond和他们的歌,是在中学的时候,但真正喜欢上这支乐队,并一遍一遍听着、唱着那些歌,其实是上了大学之后,确切说是在大四的时候。Beyond的歌和周星驰的电影,成为我学习粤语的最好教材。读研的时候,发现自己K歌的时候唱《光辉岁月》和《真的爱你》其实还蛮有心得。但其实真要我说为什么喜欢Beyond,还真说不上来。歌词很励志,旋律很难忘,似乎就只能说出这些……

但毫无疑问,Beyond的歌是我在出海时,面对蔚蓝无际的海水,闻着咸咸的海风的时候,最喜欢听的歌。还记得一号船餐厅里K歌后散落的酒瓶吗?

其实打动我的,是左岸最后的点评:

Beyond的真正含义并不是要超越别人,而是要超越自己。

不管男人还是女人,不管是过去现在还是将来,在这个社会上,想活下去,想活得好,活得开心,活得幸福,活出点味道来 ,有两条路:

第一,你从穿开裆裤起就积极向上,单纯拼搏,乐观的看待自己看待人生,生命中接触的、关注的都是爱、阳光、激情、宁静,小学无忧无虑,初中品学兼优,高中多才多艺,大学光芒四射,毕业飞黄腾达,平步青云,加官进爵指日可待。

第二,你一路走过来, 你堕落过,颓废过,自暴自弃过,打过架、 乱过性、犯过事,觉得生活没意思,觉得自己没未来,迷茫焦虑整天纠缠着自己,但是你头脑保持一丝清醒, 眼睛还亮着,关键的时候身边还有对你不离不弃的人,你没让自己在低俗中扔了坚韧和勇气,你他妈又活过来了,俗透了就脱俗了,那你就牛b了,大小通吃,黑白皆认,修魔修高了不差那修仙的。

当然这有点极端了,其实生活也很平常,犯过小糊涂,该做的还是要做,也会有所抱怨,可是大部分时候都是乐颠颠的,不求达官显贵,只求一步步的小跑着前进不太落人于后。想想,我们大多都是平常人, 一辈子都在不停的调整着这天平的砝码,这天平的一边是魔鬼,另一边是天使。

生活很会打击人,其实是人的弱点很会打击自己。如果挺过来了,生活就会对人赞许,人们就会充满自信和幸福感;如果怂了,生活就会抛弃人,人们就在放纵和堕落中抛弃了自己。

古代《晋书·乐志》说:“是以闻其宫声、使人温良而宽大;闻其商声,使人方廉而好义;闻其角声,使人倾隐而仁爱;闻其微声,使人乐养而好使;闻其羽声,使人恭俭而好礼。”

音乐是安抚悸动灵魂的神器,喜欢某种音乐,就映射着那种内心灵魂的归处,若于万乐之中能找到自己的挚爱,幸甚!

人们对音乐口味的选择是呈金字塔形状的,大多数人的选择会趋从流行,因为人们没有太多的时间和精力去感受、去欣赏,甚至没有意识要去了解更好的音乐作品。只是,当你真正懂得去欣赏后,从中获得的领会及产生的共鸣也会更多更大吧。

——

也许这是Beyond自己也没有想到过的吧。好的音乐,会让不同的人听到之后,看到不一样的人生。

第二人生

五月天的新专辑出了有一阵子了,今天才找到情绪来听

主打歌《第二人生》之前已经听过,那个时候看到这个曲名,淡然一笑,其实都未有太多的触动;

相反倒是现在,才有了更深的理解

要怎样的勇气和挣扎,才能告别过去,开始一段新的人生呢?

“生命还没有黄昏   下一站   你的第二人生”

 

总会有一首很可爱的歌,《洗衣机》,就像当年那一首《垃圾车》

唱着唱着变成歌颂母爱的歌,颇感意外,不过也算是一个温馨感人的小故事

想起那天去黎老师家里喝茶,说起他家的电视、空调、挂钟、沙发椅

一个个都是十几二十多年的老朋友

不过,最关键的还是用这些器物的人,不是吗?

 

“才发现了她的背影是    无法释怀的风景”

继续听着

《2012》《我不愿让你一个人》  《有些事现在不做,一辈子都不会做了》  《OAOA》 《诺亚方舟》……

不知道是不是现在的我特别需要有什么东西来共鸣一下

无论是这些歌名,还是里面的歌词

都让我时不时得停下来想一想,静一静

阿信的词,有些真的写得很入味——好吧,也只是有些,新专辑还未能超越之前……

但还是那些看上去似乎普普通通的词语

还是有种超越平淡的魔力

 

无以为继了……听歌吧

但发现还是喜欢从前的那些歌……

 

添加另一个演唱会版

Impossibly Beautiful

早起赶车去黄花岗,听陈志武讲座,内容多份量足,听完有淋漓畅快之感,不亦快哉!于寿司店吃了个石锅拌饭,蘸芥末食鳗鱼,感冒不通气的鼻子也通畅无阻,不亦快哉!下午与阿曾师姐去买螃蟹,煮了一锅分而食之,美味,还有荔枝一袋,仅卖三块五一斤,甜美,不亦快哉!晚上逛论坛偶然听到这首《Impossibly Beautiful》,天籁之音,看歌手简介,不禁惊为天人,不亦快哉!

 

“Impossibly Beautifu,无与伦比的美丽,选自Julie Feeney的专辑《Pages》。Julie Feeney本人也如这首歌一样,无与伦比的牛X。Julie Feeney,在她的个人主页的介绍上写着Composer / Singer / Producer / Musician / Songwriter / Educator / Theatre Artist……在诸多头衔之下,一些更让人惊叹的。她有三个硕士学位,其中一个是心理学。能够演奏十种乐器,并且是爱尔兰国家室内合唱团的专业歌手。身兼摄影师,行为艺术家,模特。是一个出色的帆板运动员以及皮船爱好者。厂牌自创,个人包办一切工作,在发行了第一张《13 Songs》,创意的编曲惊艳了媒体大众之后,第二张专辑《Pages》同样不俗”

when the earth quakes we’ll help you make it through the storm
when the floor breaks a magic carpet to stand on
we are the World united by love so strong
when the radio isn’t on you can hear the songs
a guided light on the dark road your walking on
a sign post to find the dreams you thought was gone
someone to help you move the obstacles you stumbled on
someone to help you rebuild after the rubble’s gone
we are the World connected by a common bond

在25年前由Michael Jackson领衔的“We Are the World”之后也有不少明星云集的公益歌曲出现,但是我个人认为都不及这部重制的“We Are the World 25 for Haiti”。尽管也许并没有某几位大牌国际巨星出现在MV中,但是所汇聚的明星阵容也绝对强大了,很多平日呼风唤雨的明星甚至连一句独立的歌词都没有,一眼望去真是星星无数,而歌曲的改编也相当不错,严重推荐“We Are the World 25 for Haiti”。

PS:Michael Jackson的原音得以保留

出现在MV中的明星包括:Akon, Bono, India.Arie, Patti Austin, Tony Bennett, Justin Bieber, Bizzy Bone, Ethan Bortnick, Brandy, Jeff Bridges, Toni Braxton, Zac Brown, Kristian Bush, Busta Rhymes, Natalie Cole, Harry Connick Jr., Kid Cudi, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Snoop Dogg, Drake, Earth Wind & Fire, Faith Evans, Fergie, Melanie Fiona, Jamie Foxx, Sean Garrett, Tyrese Gibson, Josh Groban, Anthony Hamilton, Keri Hilson, Julianne Hough, Jennifer Hudson, Enrique Iglesias, LL Cool J, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Randy Jackson, Taj Jackson, Taryll Jackson, TJ Jackson, Al Jardine, Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas, Nick Jonas, Rashida Jones, Gladys Knight, Adam Levine, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Benji Madden, Joel Madden, Mary Mary, Katharine McPhee, Jason Mraz, Mýa, Jennifer Nettles, Orianthi, Freda Payne, P!nk, A. R. Rahman, Nicole Richie, Raphael Saadiq, Carlos Santana, Nicole Scherzinger, Isaac Slade, Trey Songz, Musiq Soulchild, Jordin Sparks, Barbra Streisand, Swizz Beatz, T-Pain, Robin Thicke, Rob Thomas, Usher, Vince Vaughn, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, Will.i.am, Ann Wilson, Brian Wilson, Nancy Wilson and BeBe Winan.

《We Are The World 25周年暨海地赈灾版》于2010年2月1号在Henson录音室(前身是 A&M录音室)里录制,也就是与25年前的首版录制于同一个录音室,此版本由制作人Richie和执行制作人Jones,携手执行制作人Wyclef Jean、Randy Phillips和Peter Tortorici,还有制作人Humberto Gattica和RedOne,以及共同制作人 Rickey Minor、Mervyn Warren和Patti Austin ,联合制作发行以支持海地的震灾救援和重建工作。
奥斯卡获奖编剧兼导演 Paul Haggis(《撞车》,《百万美元宝贝》),他自己和Artists for Peace and Justice组织的努力已经在海地拯救了无数的生命,Paul将把此次活动拍摄下来,制作成一个随附视频和幕后花絮集锦,该影片由Paul自己担纲导演,并由Jones, Richie, Jean, Phillips和Tortorici等人担任执行制作人。
此次25周年版的录制工作汇集了超过80位的艺人。跟25年前第一次录制时一样,《We Are The World 25周年海地特别版》的录制包含了热忱、使命感和慷慨相助的精神。参与此次录制的每一位不论是什么风格和时代的艺术家,都怀着一颗完全宽容的心,走进了这个录音室,走到了一起帮助海地人民。

 

 

昨日街头

上周六,去南都看先锋光芒放的纪录片——回到广州,这是我参加的为数不多的文化活动之一——《同学》。

================================================

插播《同学》 Classmates
纪录片/普通话/203分钟/2009年
    
导演/制片/摄影/声音/剪辑/音乐:林鑫
     
影片简介
      二十多个同学的回顾,追溯了三十年的个人历史;一个个随机截取的普通日子,对应着自然和生命的四季。1978年,当这些大都是矿工后代的同学,从陕西铜川三里洞煤矿中学毕业时,他们即将展开的人生之路与中国的改革开放同步。沉浮在大时代的变革中,有着太多的理想失落与妥协,也有着不屈不挠的挣扎和坚守。三十年后,林鑫再次走近当年的同学们,记录了他们当下各自不同的生存状态和生命历程。平淡中的安逸、喧嚣中的孤独、富足后的厌倦、贫困里的无奈,都一一绽放在这群鲜活的生命中,成为这一时期中小城市大多数普通人生活的一个缩影,同时也辉映着这样一个高歌猛进的时代。

摘自先锋光芒发来的邮件
============================================

由于光碟问题,只看了前面一个片段。折腾了半天,最终给我们放映了一部介绍粤语流行曲的《我的黑胶时代》。之前有放映过,所以好多人走了。片子挺长,不过一边听着似曾相识的旋律,一边感受广州和香港的粤语文化,有种说不出的舒坦。也许是在广东呆久了,耳濡目染,对这里的语言风俗,生活节奏等都已习惯,也渐渐喜欢和融入了这种氛围。借由此片,也了解到许多当年香港乐坛的传奇故事。片中对两位早早离我们而去的歌手,梅艳芳和张国荣,作了许多介绍。都是性情中人哪,可惜~~~

《我的黑胶时代》,梁永斌侃侃而谈。原本以为他只是一位电台主持人,没想到他竟还是央视《同一首歌》的主持人。挺喜欢他的说话风格,尤其是粤语。

听到一首来自林子祥的《昨日街头》,“独自逛于街中 每天都不厌倦 童年未觉孤独 喜欢在长路转”,亲切的歌词和缓慢优美的旋律。莫名的,突然感觉仿佛自己也是生于斯长于斯,对那些街巷、球场、雪糕、鸡粥等等都很熟悉。这是种回家的感觉。不像现在的广州,到处都在打地基、架高楼。就像片中一位女士所说,广州看上去似乎很脏、很乱,却又让人觉得生活方便而又舒坦。这样“乱糟糟”的广州或许才是真正的广州,假若到处都规划得跟天河那般,广州和其他都市又有什么分别?

不过有时候,真的像歌中唱的一样,童年终究会过去,“当初一切尽改变 现有一切也变迁  试问谁来关心思考为明天
”……

United Calypso 98

United Calypso 98 – United Fans

1998年的曼联队歌。轻松明快,甚是喜欢。

Now, football is a pleasent game,
Played in the sun, played in the rain,
And the team that gets me excited,
Is Manchester United.

Manchester,
Manchester United.
A bunch of bouncing “Busby Babes”,
They deserve to be knighted.

If ever they’re playing in your town,
You must get to that football ground.
Take a look and you will see,
Football taught by Matt Busby.

Manchester,
Manchester United.
A bunch of bouncing “Busby Babes”,
They deserve to be knighted.

They are the greatest team today,
If you don’t believe it go see them play.
The type of football, second to none,
‘Cos they’re at the top of Division One!

Manchester,
Manchester United.
A bunch of bouncing “Busby Babes”,
They deserve to be knighted.

If ever they’re playing in your town,
You must get to that football ground.
Take a look and you will see,
Football taught by Matt Busby.

Manchester,
Manchester United.
A bunch of bouncing “Busby Babes”,
They deserve to be knighted.

It’s the greatest thrill that you’ve ever seen,
They are known as a soccer machine.
They are the best, there is no doubt,
So raise a cheer and give a shout.

Manchester,
Manchester United.
A bunch of bouncing “Busby Babes”,
They deserve to be knighted.

Hakuna Matata

 

昨晚到得广州,在东东他们实验室里看到这个短语Hakuna matata,还以为是某个国外试剂公司的牌子。后来看到某位仁兄的qq签名里也有这个,便好奇搜了一下,原来不是试剂,而是狮子王……

Hakuna matata is a Swahili phrase that is literally translated as “There are no worries”. It is sometimes translated as “no worries”, although is more commonly used similarly to the English phrase “no problem”.
