Not Going Anywhere

By | 2007 年 03 月 15 日

已经半个月没有更新这里的主题音乐了,十分抱歉,因为最近实在有点焦头烂额!

言归正传。这张来自于Keren Ann的首张同名专辑《Not Going Anywhere》恐怕是这最近2个月里我听得最多的一张专辑了,当然其次便是Suzanne Vega。可今天的重点不是Suzanne,而是这位嗓音颇似她的民谣歌手Keren。

Keren Ann对于法国流行乐的钟情也源于她的经历以及合作的音乐人。1974年,她出生于以色列,从小学吉他时就开始扒Joni Mitchell的曲子,11岁举家迁往巴黎后竟然得到了Joni Mitchell的赏识而结识了著名制作人Benjamin Biolay,后者的古典音乐背景为她的作品带来更丰富的编配层次。2000年Keren Ann的首张专辑《La Biographie De Luka Philipsen》融入了俄国文学、犹太民谣和法国诗歌,并以Trip-Hop、民谣及法国流行乐的融合形式现身,一举在欧洲赢得巨大成功。一曲《Jardin d’Hiver》更是惊动了80高龄的法国Bossa Nova鼻祖Henri Salvador,后者在自己的经典复出专辑《Chambre Avec Vue》中收录了包括《Jardin d’Hiver》在内的五首由Benjamin Biolay和Keren Ann创作的曲子。

Not Going Anywhere

This is why I always wonder
I’m a pond full of regrets
I always try to not remember rather than forget

This is why I always whisper
When vagabonds are passing by
I tend to keep myself away from their goodbyes

Tide will rise and fall along the bay
and I’m not going anywhere
I’m not going anywhere
People come and go and walk away
but I’m not going anywhere
I’m not going anywhere

This is why I always whisper
I’m a river with a spell
I like to hear but not to listen,
I like to say but not to tell

This is why I always wonder
There’s nothing new under the sun
I won’t go anywhere so give my love to everyone

Tide will rise and fall along the bay
and I’m not going anywhere
I’m not going anywhere
People come and go and walk away
but I’m not going anywhere
I’m not going anywhere
