David Bowie – As the world falls down

DAVID BOWIE PENDANT SA TOURNEE MONDIALE 1976
不管是什麼年紀都俊美無比的 David Bowie

需要點時間消化這個禮拜的 Supernatural,所以就先來講講不同的事情吧!

前不久殞落了一顆巨星,一個繼 Michael Jackson 之後會讓我為了他的死傷心掉淚的巨星 — David Bowie。馬的我真的在螢幕面前一面看著他的 MV 一面掉眼淚啊啊啊啊啊…(傷心到一直拼錯人家的 first name…Orz)

我一開始喜歡 David Bowie 是因為很小很小的時候迷上魔王迷宮(Labyrinth)裡面那個明明一點也不算年輕又陰陽怪氣但卻超級迷人的精靈王。

魔王迷宮 Labyrinth 裡面讓人不自覺會迷戀沉醉不已的精靈王

我最近總是聽著魔王迷宮這首經典的主題曲寫程式,越寫就越想念 David Bowie 的迷人風采。

As the world falls down

by David Bowie

There’s such a sad love
Deep in your eyes, a kind of pale jewel
Open and closed within your eyes
I’ll place the sky in your eyes

There’s such a fooled heart
Beating so fast in search of new dreams
A love that will last within your heart
I’ll place the moon within your heart

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill has gone
Wasn’t too much fun at all
But I’ll be there for you
As the world falls down

Falling
(As the world) Falling down
Falling in love

I’ll paint you mornings of gold
I’ll spin you Valentine evenings
Though we’re strangers till now
We’re choosing the path between the stars
I’ll leave my love between the stars

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill has gone
Wasn’t too much fun at all
But I’ll be there for you
As the world falls down

Falling
(As the world) Falling down
Falling
As the world falls down
Falling
Falling
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down
(Down) Falling
Falling
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down

Falling
Falling
Falling

Makes no sense at all
Makes no sense to fall
Falling
As the world falls down
Falling
Falling
Falling in love
As the world falls down
(Down) Falling
Falling
Falling in love
Falling in love (love)
Falling in love
Falling in love
Falling in love

這個英國歌手兼演員引領了超過半世紀的流行跟風潮,永遠走在世界的前端,走在自己的道路上。一開始是同性戀,後來成了雙性戀,最後則是和女人結婚生子共組家庭;不管是哪個階段那個面向的他,永遠都帶著一種獨特美麗超脫俗世的氣質跟魅力。

很難過世界少了這麼一個有才華的人。

年輕俊美的 David Bowie 讓當年許多歌迷為之瘋狂啊!

下面這個他跟 Tina Turner 合唱 Tonight 的時候,就像王子一般閃閃發亮的讓人忍不住想要尖叫!

但是我覺得有點年紀的他,那充滿深度與歷練的美才真的是讓我愛不釋手

Wild is the wind 也是我自己相當喜歡的一首歌,不管是歌詞還是旋律,就是那種前奏一下去我就會立馬購買的歌曲(腦波之弱可見一斑)。

Wild Is The Wind

by David Bowie

Love me, love me, love me
Say you do
Let me fly away
With you
For my love is like
The wind
And wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

Give me more
Than one caress
Satisfy this
Hungriness
Let the wind
Blow through your heart
For wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

You
Touch me
I hear the sound
Of mandolins
You
Kiss me
With your kiss
My life begins
You’re spring to me
All things
To me

Don’t you know you’re
Life itself

Like a leaf clings
To the tree
Oh my darling,
Cling to me
For we’re like creatures
Of the wind
And wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

You
Touch me
I hear the sound
Of mandolins
You
Kiss me
With your kiss
My life begins
You’re spring to me
All things
To me

Don’t you know you’re
Life itself

Like a leaf clings
To the tree
Oh my darling,
Cling to me
For we’re like creatures
In the wind
And wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

Wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

David Bowie 過世的消息之所以令人震驚,是因為他在過世前不久還有發新專輯。我本來還十分期待他接下來打歌上節目推出新專輯的行程跟活動,結果沒想到才公開新 MV Lazarus 後沒兩天就傳出他因病逝世的消息,害我傻眼。

據報導,他已經跟癌症奮戰了 18 個月,雖然從頭到尾都沒有對外公布這項消息。

這樣說起來,整個 Blackstar 跟 Lazarus 根本就是他燃盡自己最後生命之火的告別作,越聽越讓人傷心啊…

Lazarus

by David Bowie

Look up here, I’m in heaven
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now

Look up here, man, I’m in danger
I’ve got nothing left to lose
I’m so high, it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below
Ain’t that just like me?

By the time I got to New York
I was living like a king
Then I used up all my money
I was looking for your ass

This way or no way
You know I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now, ain’t that just like me?

Oh, I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh, I’ll be free
Ain’t that just like me?

最後就讓充滿異世界風格的 Blackstar 來當成這篇文章的結束。結果我像其他的歌迷一樣,只願意相信 David Bowie 是回去他的星球,而不是死亡。

David Bowie
啊啊!這麼美好的人怎麼可以就這樣離開我們而去啊啊!

偶爾也要記得回到地球來看看我們喔!
