音乐推荐

《The Other Side Of Paradise(天堂的另一面)》来自乐队Glass Animals(玻璃动物)一支风格很独特的专辑《How To Be A Human Being(如何做一个人)》(这个乐队的每张专辑都挺独特的)。
有人说Glass Animals的风格是神经质却又典雅,我觉得至少在这首《The Other Side Of Paradise》中的确如此。
歌词有些意识流的味道,支离破碎地讲了一个悲剧故事——一对恋人,男孩为了寻梦离开了女孩,后遇见了另一个女孩;女孩难以接受,杀了男孩后自尽。
歌词中并没有体现出任何的观点或思想,只是以女孩的视角记录下整个故事和一些心境。
歌曲的“神经质”同时体现在编曲和节奏中,比如当歌词描述在女孩举枪自戕后,“My body's looking wrong”,旋律也同时突然失去了原来的节奏,并不断重复这一句歌词,让听众意会到一种“错乱”和“麻木”。

歌词及翻译(转载本翻译请注明来源:有格调网站)

When I was young and stupid my love
在我尚且愚钝的年纪
Left to be a rock and roll star
我的爱人离我而去,去追寻他的摇滚梦想
He told me please don't worry
他告诉我无须担心
Wise little smile that spoke so safely
他自信的微笑让我安心
He booked a one way ticket
他订了一张没有回程的车票
Out west that's where they make it
西部,那个许多人美梦成真的地方是他的终点
Six kids stuck in a bedsit
那个一间小屋挤着六个年轻人
To sun swept poolside riches
却有机会功成名就,在池畔赏霞光的地方
He met a girl who wore versace
在那里,他遇见了一个女孩
Pink feather coats and jumbo jewellery
穿着范思哲的昂贵外套,戴着奢侈的首饰
Gonna be a hoop phenomenon
他将要成为一颗新星
He's gonna be hakeem olajuwan
就像奥拉朱旺那样
He's got a gold camaro
就连金色科迈罗,也唾手可得
He said over the payphone
他在电话亭告诉了我这一切
I try to keep my cool but
我试图让自己平静地接受这一切
My life turns in slow motion
但是,我的生命瞬间变成了慢镜头
Bye bye baby blue
再见了,我忧郁的爱人
I wish you could see the wicked truth
我希望你能看见这个世界的邪恶一面
Caught up in a rush it's killing you
你卷入的洪流将会让你万劫不复
Screaming at the sun you blow into
朝着突如其来的烈日大声呼喊
Curled up in a grip when we were us
我们曾蜷缩在一起
Fingers in a fist like you might run
手指握成拳,就像你要奋力疾跑那样
I settle for a ghost I never knew
我接受了这个世界的邪恶一面
Super paradise I held on to
我一直相信有美好天堂
But I settle for a ghost
但现在我接受了这个世界的邪恶一面
When I was from nola no one
当我还在老城的时候
Left to be a rock and roll star
没有人想要离开去追逐摇滚梦
He'd stay and treat his lady
那个男孩会留下陪伴他的伴侣
Give everything to his new baby
为他们将要到来的孩子付出一切
I miss him don't you blame me
我开始止不住的思念他了
That boy went stone cold crazy
可那个男孩终究变得冷血而疯狂
Caught up in camera lust he's
沉醉在镜头里的纸醉金迷
Chasing that pappy pipe dreams
追寻着已经模糊的梦想
I know you don't but I
我知道思念不再值得
I know you don't but I still try
但我无法抑制
My thunder shook him down
我的怒火将他击倒
My thunder came and shook him down
我终究没能保持冷静
That girl is gone but I
那个女孩走了
That girl is gone but I stil try
再也不会回来
I think it's over now
我想一切都已经结束了
The bullet hit but maybe not
那颗子弹打中了他,或许也没有吧
I feel so fucking numb
为什么我感受到麻木
It hits my head and I feel numb
我举枪自戕,我的大脑变得麻木
My body's looking wrong
我的身体缓缓倒下
My body's looking wrong
我的身体缓缓倒下
My body's looking wrong
我的身体缓缓倒下
Bye bye baby blue
再见了,我忧郁的爱人
I wish you could see the wicked truth
我希望你能看到这个世界的邪恶一面
Caught up in a rush it's killing you
你卷入的洪流将会让你万劫不复
Screaming at the sun you blow into
朝着突如其来的烈日大声呼喊
Curled up in a grip when we were us
我们曾蜷缩在一起
Fingers in a fist like you might run
手指握成拳,就像你要奋力疾跑那样
I settle for a ghost I never knew
我接受了这个世界的邪恶一面
Super paradise I held on to
我一直相信有美好天堂
But I settle for a ghost
但现在我接受了这个世界的邪恶一面
