慣性,人性

慣性的想起妳
慣性的想看妳
慣性的想找妳
慣性的思念妳
慣性的想改變慣性
卻又有時不由自主的恢復慣性
慣性的想讓慣性改變,這是人性嗎?

How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb by U2


買這張以前我沒買過任何一張u2的作品,以前總是覺得他們的作品太軟,不夠強烈,很內斂的風格
買來聽了之後也的確跟我想的很像,很內斂的風格,也許是因為年紀也到了一定程度了,不像年輕的樂團那樣的狂放,反而是以自己的內心省思為主,這張有點久了,快兩年前的作品了,聽起來依然讓人感動
最有感覺得算是Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own , A man and a woman
sometines you can't make it on your own是bono送給過世的父親的歌,交錯的運用自己與父親的腳色,其實父親與他自己都是歌詞中的you,寫給父親到不如說是寫給自己,沒有父親的話他也不是今天的自己,另外一首就比較像是男女之間的愛情,個人還是比較喜歡sometimes you can't make it on your own

Tough, you think you've got the stuff
You're telling me and anyone
You're hard enough

You don't have to put up a fight
You don't have to always be right
Let me take some of the punches
For you tonight

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

We fight all the time
You and I...that's alright
We're the same soul
I don't need...I don't need to hear you say
That if we weren't so alike
You'd like me a whole lot more

Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don't have to go it alone

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

I know that we don't talk
I'm sick of it all
Can - you - hear - me - when - I -
Sing, you're the reason I sing
You're the reason why the opera is in me...

Where are we now?
I've still got to let you know
A house still doesn't make a home
Don't leave me here alone...

And it's you when I look in the mirror
And it's you that makes it hard to let go
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
Sometimes you can't make it
The best you can do is to fake it
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

loose by nelly furtado


加拿大女歌手nelly furtado最新的作品,再次讓我聽到她的創意,突破前兩張的風格,再第三張專輯大量的採用了許多hip hop的元素,也更貼近北美主流市場的潮流,如同其他的hip hop專輯一樣,找很多人來合作是很常見的方式,這張專輯也是,找來了一些大牌來合作,看一下曲名就知道了
我對hip hop不是很喜歡,所以以前也沒有買過,這張算是第一次買吧,也是一種突破吧
雖然風格很貼近北美主流市場的喜好,可是還是能夠感受到不少她自己的創意在裡面,例如跟Juanes合作的Te Busque這首歌就讓人覺得很不一樣
整張專輯給我的感覺是,旋律性很強,歌聲部分則是一貫的多變,歌詞更是跟hip hop一樣,落落長,可是因為搭配了滿容易接受的旋律,所以不會讓人覺得不舒服
雖然從第八首歌Say It Right開始,hip hop的部份就淡了很多了,讓人有一種多變的感覺,我個人還是比較喜歡後半部,比較像她過去兩張專輯的感覺
整體而言,算是滿有突破個人過去的風格的專輯,而在商業上也得到了不錯的成績,還不錯聽
