Both sides, now @ Nov 25, 2011
Both sides, now-Hayley Westenra翻唱1969年Joni Mitchell的版本。





Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way


But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
Clouds got in my way


I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud's illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all


Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way


But now it's just another show
You leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away


I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all


Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way


But now old friends they're acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost but something's gained
In living every day


I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

Mystery the moon
A hole in the sky
A supernatural nightlight
So full but often right
A pair of eyes a closin' one
A chosen child of golden sun
A marble dog that chases cars
To farthest reaches of the beach
and far beyond into the swimming sea of stars


A cosmic fish they love to kiss
They're giving birth to constellation
No riffs and oh no reservation
If they should fall you get a wish or dedication
May I suggest you get the best
For nothing less than you and i
Let's take a chance as this romance
is rising over before we lose the lighting
Oh bella bella please
Bella you beautiful luna
Oh bella do you do


You are an illuminated anchor
Of leads to infinite number
Crashing waves and breaking thunder
Tiding the evenflows of hunger
You're dancing naked there for me
You expose all memory
You make the most of boundary
You're the ghost of royalty imposing love
You are the queen and king combining everything
Into twining like a ring around the finger of a girl
i'm just a singer, you're the world
all i can bring ya
is the language of a lover
bella luna, my beautiful beautiful moon
how you swoon me like no other


may i suggest you get the best
of your wish may i insist
that no contest for little you or smaller i
a larger chance happened, all them they lie
on the rise, on the brink of our lives


bella please
bella you beautiful luna
oh bella do you do
bella luna, my beautiful beautiful moon
how you swoon me like no other, oh oh oh
假如-信乐团 @ Jun 03, 2011
(请点击赏听)"假如" ,送给已经到来的六月。


歌名:假如
演唱:信乐团
专辑:挑信


一份爱能承受多少的误解
熬过飘雪的冬天


一句话能撕裂多深的牵连
变的比陌生人还遥远
最初的爱越像火焰
最后越会被风熄灭
有时候真话太尖锐
有人只好说著谎言


假如时光到流我能做什么
找你没说的却想要的
假如我不放手你多年以后
会怪我恨我或感动
想假如是最空虚的痛
一个人要看过几次爱凋谢
才甘心在孤独里冬眠
最初的爱越像火焰
最后越会被风熄灭
有时候真话太尖锐
有人只好说著谎言
假如时光到流我能做什么
找你没说的却想要的
假如我不放手你多年以后
会怪我恨我或感动
想假如是最空虚的痛
为什么幸福都是幻梦
一靠近天堂也就快醒了
或许爱情更像落叶
看似飞翔却在坠落
假如真可以让时光到流你会做什么
一样选择我或不抱我
假如温柔放手你是否懂得
走错了可以再回头
想假如
是无力的寂寞
Be still my heart @ Apr 08, 2011
周末下班路上听到CD里播放的这首挪威歌手演唱的Be still my heart ,很适合黑夜中驾车行驶听的音乐,美好又忧伤。忘记上次专注听歌是什么时候?


My heart's not lonely or broken
Is not of ice or of gold
Nor has my heart ever spoken
To me when a love has grown cold


I felt not the faintest flutter
When you brushed my cheek as you passed
Nor will I willingly clutter
My life with these things that don't last


Be still my heart
My heart be still


If our eyes should meet then so-be-it
No need to trouble a heart that's hidden
Where no-one can free it
Only to tear it apart


Be still my heart
My heart be still

Beware, beware, beware
Take care, take care

Be still my heart
My heart be stil
Rehab @ Jul 01, 2010
Rehab.mp3--Rihanna
baby baby
when we first met i never felt something so strong
you were like my lover and my best friend
all wrapped in one with a ribbon on it
and all of a sudden you went and left
i didn't know how to follow
it's like a shock that spun me around
and now my heart's dead
i feel so empty and hollow

and i'll never give myself to another the way i gave it to you
you don't even recognize the ways you hurt me, do you?
it's gonna take a miracle to bring me back
and you're the one to blame
and now i feel like....oh!
you're the reason why i'm thinking
i don't wanna smoke on these cigarettes no more
i guess that's what i get for wishful thinking
should've never let you enter my door

送给我们的杭州行 @ May 12, 2010
张靓颖唱的“印象西湖”是喜多郎作曲,听喜多郎纯音乐的“印象西湖雨”也好。我们到杭州的那天也在下雨,春天如果想找个地方走走,可以考虑杭州,这时候的杭州很美。

扑土推荐了范宗沛的“摆渡人之歌”,好比千朵桃花一树生,非比寻常泛泛亲,你莫把姑娘当外人。他们在花丛间轻轻弹唱,我们在水波间荡漾。这深处的江南,让人怎不流连难忘。



雨还在下落满一湖烟
断桥绢伞黑白了思念
谁在船上写我的从前
一笔誓言满纸离散

雨~~~站在湖边
雨~~~遥望北岸
雨还在下落满一湖烟
断桥绢伞黑白了思念
谁在船上写我的从前
一笔蝴蝶满纸离散

我的告别从没有间断
西子湖上一遍一遍

白色翅膀分飞了流年
长叹一声天上人间
雨还在下淋湿千年
湖水连天黑白相见
谁在船上写我从前
一说人间再说江山



Walking, shooting at noon

Heavens Divide.mp3

Petals of white
Cover fields flowing in grieving tears
And all the hearts once new,old and shattered now
Love can kill,love will die
Give me wings to fly
Fleeing this world so cold
I just wonder why

Cold as the dark
Now my words,are frosted with every breath
Still the hate burns wild,growing inside this heart
When the wind changes course when the star align
I will reach out to you and leave this all behind
When heavens divide

When heavens divide
I will see the choices within my hands
How can we ever protect and fight with our tiny souls
Let me shine like the sun through the doubts of fear
Do you feel the storm approach as the end draws near

When heavens divide
Time will come to softly lay me down
Then I can see a face that I long to see
And for you,only you I would give anything
Leaving a trace for love to find a way

When heavens divide

I will dive into the fire
Spilling the blood of my desire
The very last time
My name scorched into the sky

When heavens divide
I will see the choices within my hands
How can we ever protect and fight with our tiny souls
Let me shine like the sun through the doubts of fear
Do you feel the storm approach as the end draws near

When heavens divide
Time will come to softly lay me down
Then I can see a face that I long to see
And for you,only you I would give anything
Leaving a trace for love to find a way

When heavens divide

And for you,only you I would give anything
Leaving a trace for love to find a way

When heavens divide
Leave a Scar @ Mar 29, 2010
打开门,听到一个声音唱着“Whatever doesn't kill you is gonna leave a scar ....”
“这个嗓子里有痰的家伙是谁?”
“Marilyn Manson。”
“哦,我喜欢。”
“邪恶啊。。。”

去年这位黑暗摇滚音乐人与Lady Gaga合作一首“LoveGame”,堪称09年乐坛最“雷”的音乐组合。我搜了下他的雷人造型 ,有几个封面似曾相识,为了晚上顺利入眠,还是看看小图得了。

######以下介绍来自百度#####

玛莉莲·曼森其实是一个乐团名。乐队原名Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids,Marilyn Manson是主音的艺名,而Spooky Kids则是指团中其他队员,在一九九二年,名字缩短至Marilyn Manson。乐队中每人的名称均以出名杀人犯为姓,和美艳艺人为名。如主音的名称就是取材自性感女神Marilyn Monroe(玛丽莲·梦露)以及美国杀人魔王Charles Manson(查尔斯·曼森)。他们取名的原因是喜欢“美丽”与“恐怖”的矛盾和对比。

既然这么的离经叛道,就可以知道他们的音乐不会是太主流的流行音乐。他们的主要演奏重金属音乐,每张专辑都改变音乐风格,由工业摇滚至华丽摇滚都有。

看惯了玛丽莲-曼森一贯的白面魔鬼造型,其实很少人知道这位本名布莱恩华纳的真实生活是如何。在他们组团之前,布莱恩是滚石杂志的名乐评,曾经写过像呛红辣椒等许多脍炙人口的作品,之后他决定自己踏入幕前,不过一般乐迷对他过于前卫的音乐理念似乎无法接受,甚至让玛丽莲-曼森渐渐的成为邪恶的代名词,不过他也否认了外传他是撒旦教的忠实信徒,他说只是把这个宗教当成是一种艺术,他并不比一般人更邪恶,别人怎么对他,他就会以相同的方式回报。

或许他能一直坚持他的特异独行,在这个无奇不有的现在,这位搞怪始祖似乎是终于找到了认同,美国累积高达六百万张的销售天量,这次他的再出发似乎是要像他的专辑名称一般惊世骇俗,不得不佩服玛丽莲-曼森的勇气,因为他们以灵魂跟魔鬼交换了这场华美夺目的惊悚盛宴!



《leave a scar》试听:

It's not like I made myself a list
Of new anddifferent ways to murder your heart
I'm just a painting that's still wet
If you touch me, I'll be smeared
You'll be stained
Stained for the rest of your life
So turn around, walk away
Before you confuse the way we abuse each other
You're not afraid of getting hurt
And I'm not afraid of how much I hurt you

I'm well aware I'm a danger to myself
Are you aware I'm a danger to others?
There's a crack in my soul
You thought it was a smile

Whatever doesn't kill you…
Is gonna leave a scar
Whatever doesn't kill you…
Is gonna leave a scar

I'm more like a silver bullet
And I’m like a gun, not easy to hold
I'm moving fast and if I stay inside your heart
I'm certain that this will be
The end of your life
So turn around, walk away
Before you confuse the way we abuse each other
You're not afraid of getting hurt
And I'm not afraid of how much I hurt you

I'm well aware I'm a danger to myself
Are you aware I'm a danger to others?
There's a crack in my soul
You thought it was a smile

Whatever doesn't kill you…
Is gonna leave a scar
Whatever doesn't kill you…
Is gonna leave a scar
Leave a scar
Leave a scar
Whatever doesn't kill you will leave a scar

She warned you that she may fuck me
But chances are I'm going to fuck you over

Whatever doesn't kill you…
Is gonna leave a scar
Whatever doesn't kill you…
Is gonna leave a scar
Leave a scar
Leave a scar

Whatever doesn't kill you…
Is gonna leave a scar
“Smoke & Mirrors”
--lifehousemusic.com


there was a time, was a place back when
you and i were living alone together
we held each other in the middle of the night
and swore we'd somehow make it better
we set our sights on the big city lights
no moss on these rolling stones
and here we are with everything we ever wanted
but now we're together alone

gotta break out of this place we're in
runnin' out of time and out of sin
we were living smoke and mirrors anyway
gonna drive all night 'til we disappear
chasing down the miles so far from here
as the smoke and mirrors start to fade away
we're still the same...

i remember thinking we could make it out somehow
if somehow we ever took a chance
we packed up what we had and threw it in the trunk
didn't give our life a second glance
now the days roll hard and the nights move fast
they say be careful what you wish
but having everything means nothing to me now
what we had is everything i miss

gotta break out of this place we're in
runnin' out of time and out of sin
we were living smoke and mirrors anyway
gonna drive all night 'til we disappear
chasing down the miles so far from here
as the smoke and mirrors start to fade away
you know we're still the same... still the same

gonna drive all night 'til we disappear
chasing down the miles so far from here
as the smoke and mirrors start to fade away
and we're all we've got so let's hold on tight
to the dreams that came before the fight
we were living smoke and mirrors anyway
张靓颖在opera show @ May 16, 2009
5月张靓颖上了美国opera show,连看两遍视频,作为中国艺人,她的演唱才华和英语能力值得称赞,而且可以看出张靓颖的台风和心理素质都不错,没太多压力。连Simon Cowell这个刻薄的音乐制作人也面带笑容全神贯注,还情不自禁地朝主持人挤了挤眼睛,潜台词似乎是“嗨,她唱得不错哦~”(Simon是《American Idol》和《Britain's Got Talent》的评委)

张靓颖在opera show上演唱了张艺谋执导、喜多郎作曲的《西湖印象》和爵士风格的歌曲《我的音乐对我说》,观众反应热烈!

Oprah说:Good. So I..I..I..hear I hear you are also a big fan of American music, who's your favorite?
Jane:Of course--Mariah Carey.
Oprah:Of course?
Jane:Yes. There's a story I really want to tell. When I was very young, I felt normal like anybody else, one day I went to a CD store, then I heard a voice, she sang--"There's a hero, if you look inside your heart, you don't have to be afraid of what you are..." I think..I'm a little bit nervous..But if I'm not a fan of Mariah, maybe, how can I do, how can I be a singer today?
Oprah:That's pretty amazing.
Jane:Yes!
......
这期opera show的主题就是 “选秀诞生的巨星”,张靓颖代表亚洲地区参加,大概是被她的美国制作人推荐给Oprah,然后Oprah邀请她。这是她在美国电视的首次露面便获得了众多关注,其中包括来自us-based angents的offers,她与华谊公司的合约也即将到期。

***张靓颖在opera show上的精彩表演
***opera官方网站对Jane Zhang的访谈介绍

*******************有关opera show********************
创办于1986年的《奥普拉·温弗瑞秀》,以白天日播的形式出现,试图为人们提供一个情感依托的空间,一个心理疗养所。不同于当时盛行的政治调侃类谈话节目,《奥普拉秀》将谈论的话题定位在社会、家庭生活领域,既不以制造公众闹剧来哗众取宠,也不以揭露隐私来赚取收视率,而是坚持在平平淡淡的相互倾诉中,为人们解决各种现实生活问题。节目通过辛迪加实现了网络化播出,如今在美国,该节目平均每周有近3300万名观众收看,并向全世界107个国家转播。自1987年以来,奥普拉和她的节目总共获得过35项美国电视艾美奖,连续18年高居美国日间电视收视率的冠军位置,成为美国电视史上的一个神话,也被许多谈话节目作为研究、借鉴的范本。
