Baby, Now That I’ve Found You 中那段触动我内心的旋律

Now That I’ve Found You 是一张发行于1995年包含之前Alsion Krauss & Union Station 录制未发行以及翻唱的作品,其中最成功乃至成就了Alison的那首经典的When you say nothing at all ,不过今天要谈的是第一首歌。

记得第一次听到Baby, Now That I’ve Found You的时候没有很惊艳的感觉,简单直白的陈述和没有很特色的旋律。但是当我看到他们现场演绎这首歌中段,Alison 拉起那段旋律的时候,不知道怎么的就被深深的触动到了,大概人家常说的触碰到了内心最柔软地方的感觉就是这样吧。

这个MV我存在硬盘里好久,今天又拿出来再听,感觉少了当时的那种触动感,甚至在想真的那么好吗,是不是因为最喜欢的歌手,所以怎么听都好呢。但是当时给了格莱美 Best Female Country Vocal Performance的评委应该不会错吧,专辑受到千万人喜爱也不会错吧。

记得前几天看Nolan的视频说老年人相信一切,中年人怀疑一切,年轻人挑战一切。大概这就是中年人的表象吧。

又听了3,4遍,终于又感觉到了当时的感觉,忽然想到一句话:岁月如流水潺潺。Our ancestors不只说流水还说潺潺,一方面是说流水是有声音的,你静下来你就能听到;要不然,一切都是坐车的风景,看过与否你自己也不知道。

从Youku找到演唱会时的版本,唱风和fiddle的表现也都不同,毕竟流水并潺潺。

500 Miles

其实本来想,应该专注写关于乡村音乐的东西,但是最近看的纪录片里,记不得是willie还是哪位artist说:do not put fences between different of music. 而且folk本来跟乡村就不是那么的分吧,也就释然了。

想起这首歌完全是因为刚刚看了Inside Llewyn Davis 这部电影。其中的音乐都是经典或者悦耳悠扬的,只是当又听到这首500 miles时,被3位演唱者的姿态和音乐深深的抓住了,人声模拟出来的渐入和渐淡使得听众跟着音乐仿佛轻轻的飘了起来,然后慢慢的被放到了某个角落,你可能是回到了家乡,也可能是去了更远的地方。

翻唱版本相当的多,多为人所知的就是第二个版本:Peter, Paul and Mary,但是其他大牌比如:The Kingston Trio,Elvis Presley(猫王),Rosanne Cash,都曾经翻唱过。这部2013年的电影请来了Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan and Stark Sands,抛开Justin的名字,我觉得诠释的算是相当不错。但是,平心而论,写下作品的人才是真正赋予这周灵魂的人。

If you miss the train I’m on, you will know that I am gone

You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

A hundred miles, a hundred miles

A hundred miles, a hundred miles

You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

Lord, I’m one, Lord, I’m two, Lord, I’m three, Lord, I’m four

Lord, I’m five hundred miles from my home

Five hundred miles, five hundred miles

Five hundred miles, five hundred miles

Lord, I’m five hundred miles from my home

Not a shirt on my back, not a penny to my name

Lord, I can’t go a-home this a-way

This a-away, this a-way, this a-way, this a-way

Lord, I can’t go a-home this a-way

If you miss the train I’m on, you will know that I am gone

You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles


My original idea is that the blog all about Country Music, however, one of the artists from the documentary named Country Music by Ken Burns said do not put fences between different music, another reason I believe is that Folk and Country Music is the closest music genes.

I watched the movie Inside Llewyn Davis recently and so moved by the 3 singers who sang the song in it. My mind has gone far far away, home or somewhere, although, like the audiences who just sat there listening to the music.

There were tons of musicians who remastered the song, such as The Kingston Trio, Elvis Presley, Rosanne Cash. It is the right choice to invite Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan and Stark Sands reperformed it, but speak frankly, the write of the song is the one who attached the soul into the song, no matter which one sings it.

I was playing the song repeatedly when I was writing the blog, I just cannot stop it.

开篇:我不确定是一个开始,但是我确定是一个期待。。。

乡村音乐写爱情的其实不算多,因为相比而言,大家更多是写宗教,国家和生活。但是这首纯粹的爱之歌,听着的时候你的心会随着一起Goin’ once, goin’ twice, goin gone

There’s a lighthouse in the harbor
Giving guidance with its light
But I had no one to return to
As I wandered through the night

From the first time that I saw you
Standing silent by the shore
I knew my search was over
And I would look for love no more

Deep in the waters of love I am falling
Sinking like a stone
Deep in my heart I can hear love callin’
Goin’ once, goin’ twice, goin gone
Goin’ once, goin’ twice, goin gone

There’s a ship on the horizon
Makin’ its way against the wind
From the place where I stand watching
I swear my ship is coming in.

Deep in the waters of love I am falling
Sinking like a stone
Deep in my heart I can hear love callin’
Goin’ once, goin’ twice, goin gone
Goin’ once, goin’ twice, goin gone

Sinking like a stone

Deep in my heart I can hear love callin’
Goin’ once, goin’ twice, goin gone
Goin’ once, goin’ twice, goin gone

有一点提及一下,Kathy Mattea并不是Goin’ Gone的首唱,但是 Nanci Griffith 显然没有达到我耳朵的预期,又或者说Kathy注入了更多情感进来吧。
