【星期五聽首歌】Vance Joy

工作的關係,又把 Spotify 重新下載,當初參加記者會得到的 Premium 序號已經過期了,只有免費版可以使用,但是免費版真的已經夠厲害,馬上就把某 BOX 退了。

前兩天忘記聽哪一個歌單,聽到了 Vance Joy,一位澳洲吟唱歌手的歌,不是那種一聽鍾情型的,甚至在前奏讓人有點想跳掉,想起一個音樂老師說的「台灣人現在什麼都求快,連一首歌都不願意好好聽完」就耐著性子聽完一首,又一首。

今天要介紹的是他最具代表性的歌,叫做 <Riptide>,歌詞算是可愛,可愛得有點怪、有點酸、有點黑色幽默。 
這首歌在 2013 澳洲電台 Triple J 頒發的 Top 100 獲得票選第一名,所以也可以說它超級芭樂?說不定你聽了也喜歡,主流或是非主流的界限早就沒有這麼清楚了。
光是 MV 裡頭很多小巧思呼應歌詞就覺得滿了不起!

I was scared of dentists and the dark
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
Oh, all my friends are turning green
You're the magician's assistant in their dreams
(章子怡嗎?)

Oh, and they come unstuck

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because
You're gonna sing the words wrong

There's this movie that I think you'll like
This guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City
This cowboy's running from himself
And she's been living on the highest shelf
 
Oh, and they come unstuck

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because
You're gonna sing the words wrong

I just wanna, I just wanna know
If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay
I just gotta, I just gotta know
I can't have it, I can't have it any other way
I swear she's destined for the screen
Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen, oh

Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you're singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat because
You're gonna sing the words wrong
