素年锦时:

Birdy将Ed Sheeran的这首The A team翻唱的如此凄婉动人。

不由自主被带入了一个淡然忧伤的情境之中

素淡而不寡淡 忧伤而不哀伤

一首有故事的歌(下方有引用的介绍)

想起了电影《Lolita》里面的一句经典台词:

“I looked and looked at her, and I knew, as clearly as I know that I will die, that I loved her more than anything I had ever seen or imagined on earth. She was only the dead-leaf echo of the nymphet from long ago - but I loved her, this Lolita, pale and polluted and big with another man's child. She could fade and wither  I didn't care. I would still go mad with tenderness at the mere sight of her face. ”

 我望着她,望完又望。一生一世,全心全意......我最爱的就是她,可以肯定,就像自己必死一样肯定。昔日的如花妖女,现在只剩下枯叶回乡,苍白,混俗,臃肿,腹中的骨肉是别人的,但我爱她,她可以褪色,可以萎谢,怎样都可以,但我只看她一眼,万般柔情,涌上心头。

又想起张爱玲书中的一句:

回忆这东西若是有气味的话,那就是樟脑的香,

甜而稳妥,像记得分明的块乐,

甜而怅惘,像忘却了的忧愁。

《The A Team》是英国新晋人气才子艾德·希兰(Ed Sheeran)第一张专辑《+》中的首支单曲。这支单曲主要讲了社会底层贫苦交加身染毒瘾卖身为妓最终香消玉殒的一个女孩的故事。她天生美貌但梦想难酬,为生活所迫而沉沦堕落,最后因overdose(磕药过量)意外过世的悲剧一生。

这支单曲在空降英国单曲榜第三名,同时该单曲在第55届格莱美颁奖典礼中被提名为年度最佳歌曲。其实在这首歌中并未讲述她曾付出多大的努力,或因此死去主要是哀婉女子境遇凄惨身世多舛过早凋零。推测是歌手作为叙述者的角色设定 更多是作为一个旁观者,而非从全知的视角对主角的一生作全方位的描述整首歌曲弥漫一种古典的淡淡的忧伤情怀,让人不禁想起莫泊桑笔下那些同样被侮辱被伤害的底层女性。


歌词(online译本):

White lips, pale face

苍白的唇,黯淡的面庞

Breathing in snowflakes

是吸入“雪花”留下的痕迹——

Burnt lungs, sour taste

肺部灼烧,酸腐的气味

Light's gone, day's end

光芒渐熄,一日又要结束

Struggling to pay rent

是苦苦为报酬挣扎的时间——

Long nights, strange men

长夜漫漫,陌生枕边人

And they say

人们说,

She's in the Class A Team

她是最受欢迎的姑娘之一

Stuck in her daydream

沉浸在她的梦中,

Been this way since 18

自十八岁始便一直如此未变

But lately her face seems

但近来,她的面庞似乎

Slowly sinking, wasting

渐渐消沉荒芜

Crumbling like pastries

像糕饼一般褶皱零碎

And they scream

她们呼喊

The worst things in life come free to us

生活为何对我们如此不公

Cos we're just under the upperhand

我们在整个社会的最底层

And go mad for a couple of grams

为几克粉末而不顾一切

And she don't want to go outside tonight

而今夜,她不想出去

And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland

在烟管中,她仿佛飘然回到故乡

Or sells love to another man

又如向另一个男人出卖了爱情

It's too cold outside

外面的世界太寒冷

For angels to fly

无法让天使飞翔

Angels to fly

让天使飞翔

Ripped gloves, raincoat

破旧手套,披裹著雨衣

Tried to swim and stay afloat

试图在游水时不落河底

Dry house, wet clothes

乾燥房间,浸湿的衣服

Loose change, bank notes

小额钞票,银行的帐单

Weary-eyed, dry throat

疲惫眼眸映衬著乾涩喉音

Call girl, no phone

想打给谁,却没有电话

And they say

人们说,

She's in the Class A Team

她是最受欢迎的姑娘之一

Stuck in her daydream

沉浸在她的梦中,

Been this way since 18

自十八岁始便一直如此未变

But lately her face seems

但近来,她的面庞似乎

Slowly sinking, wasting

渐渐消沉荒芜

Crumbling like pastries

像糕饼一般褶皱零碎

And they scream

她们呼喊

The worst things in life come free to us

生活为何对我们如此不公

Cos we're just under the upperhand

我们在整个社会的最底层

And go mad for a couple of grams

为几克粉末而不顾一切

And she don't want to go outside tonight

而今夜,她不想出去

And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland

在烟管中,她仿佛飘然回到故乡

Or sells love to another man

又如向另一个男人出卖了爱情

It's too cold outside

外面的世界太寒冷

For angels to fly

无法让天使飞翔

Angels to fly

让天使飞翔

An angel will die

一个天使即将死亡

Covered in white

被雪白覆盖

Closed eye

阖上双眼

And hoping for a better life

期愿中想像一个更美好的生活

This time, we'll fade out tonight

这次,我们在夜晚黯淡消退

Straight down the line

渐行渐远

And they say

人们说,

She's in the Class A Team

她是最受欢迎的姑娘之一

Stuck in her daydream

沉浸在她的梦中,

Been this way since 18

自十八岁始便一直如此未变

But lately her face seems

但近来,她的面庞似乎

Slowly sinking, wasting

渐渐消沉荒芜

Crumbling like pastries

像糕饼一般褶皱零碎

她们呼喊

The worst things in life come free to us

Or sells love to another man

又如向另一个男人出卖了爱情

It's too cold outside

外面的世界太寒冷

For angels to fly

无法让天使飞翔

Angels to fly

让天使飞翔

To fly, fly

飞翔……

Or angels to die

因此天使死亡
