Wasted On The Way

By | 2007 年 06 月 07 日

在路上被废了。这是昨天发生在我身上的事。不过选到此曲却属意外,本应周一或者周二更新的,选一首来自Emilie Simon的歌,但却一直拖下来了。懒得翻了,所以直接从Amazon贴一个介绍。

When David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash created this pop super trio in 1968 after their splits from the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Hollies, respectively, it would have been a pipedream that a hits package released 37 years later would sound as eternal and essential as this one. The 19 songs straddle the four-album, landscape-altered timeframe between 1969’s post-Woodstock debut Crosby, Stills & Nash and 1982’s Daylight Again, which helped inaugurate the MTV era. Unbalanced sequencing–which randomly bounces 12 years ahead and five years back–is rescued by the superb harmonies, unique songwriting and divergent personalities of the three members. With politics and culture always at the forefront, Stills bookends the band’s trademark canon with “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” and “Southern Cross,” Nash incorporates Eastern influences to “Marrakesh Express” and folk timber to “Just a Song Before I Go” and “Teach Your Children,” and the ever-capricious Crosby leads the way lyrically with the lingering “Delta” to the Robert Kennedy tribute “Long Time Gone.” Sure, the collection is missing any songs by (“Ohio”) or contributions from (“Woodstock”) the fourth name on the marquee (Neil Young). Here’s hoping that’s for another Greatest Hits. –Scott Holter

Wasted On The Way
Artist: Crosby Stills & Nash

Look around me
I can see my life before me
Running rings around the way
It used to be
I am older now
I have more than what I wanted
But I wish that I had started
Long before I did
Chorus
And there’s so much time to make up
Everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way
So much water moving
Underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
Oh when you were young
Did you question all the answers
Did you envy all the dancers
Who had all the nerve
Look round you know
You must go for what you wanted
Look at all my friends who did and got what they deserved
Chorus
And there’s so much time to make up
Everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way
So much water moving
Underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
And there’s so much love to make up
Everywhere you turn
Love we have wasted on the way
So much water moving
Underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
Let the water come and carry us away
