【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

2012年4月5號,其實算不上歌迷的我因為最低票價開出六百元台幣,抱著一種好划算的買菜大嬸心態竟然真的搶到了AMeiZING世界巡迴演唱會臺北場的票。六百元的票在小巨蛋的三樓,離舞台可謂是非常遙遠,但從來不是唱跳嗨咖的我其實就是想聽聽歌,後來發現大螢幕上看得挺清楚的還覺得真是賺到。整場聽下來出乎意料的過癮(因為其實根本沒抱任何期待就是個想說難得有機會見識一下天后演唱會的窮酸路人),現場怎麼那麼好聽!動人到我看完演唱會出來心裡暗自決定要去買齊阿妹所有的專輯!然而人都惰性很重,阿妹出道至今出了十幾張專輯,光是要找齊都要花一番工夫,我一發懶就把搜集全部專輯這件事給放下了。直到2013年12月22日冬至晚上,阿妹自掏腰包在華山草坪舉辦了一場愛是唯一的免費演唱會,只為了表態支持同性戀的愛,告訴大家每一個人的愛都值得被尊重。當時因為工作身在越南的我沒有辦法去參加,但阿妹給的這份溫暖喚醒了我當初看完演唱會的感動,立馬在網路上利用不同平台一一買齊了過往的16張專輯,這是我對阿妹表達感謝的方式。
