Damien Rice & Lisa Hannigan

Damien Rice的歌曲很棒,唱慢歌时歌声和旋律很沧桑哀怨。如果心情容易受影响的请不要一直重复聆听,可能会陷入低落的情绪。5年前我第一次听“Amie”& “Cold Water”是由朋友介绍的,去年Khee又推荐Damien Rice,之后我买了Damien Rice的一张专辑,“O”,如此简短特别的名称。

这里分享其中两首我很喜欢的合唱歌曲,但不是收录在“O”专辑里。来自爱尔兰的Damien Rice 和 Lisa Hannigan 现场合唱,我很欣赏这样有个性的两把歌声。

Unplayed Piano (Live)

2005年6月21日是缅甸民主人权斗士昂山素枝的六十岁生日,Damien Rice发表了 “Unplayed Piano” 作为对 “Free Aung San Suu Kyi 60th Birthday Campaign” 的支持。这首有意思的歌曲,两人的声线很搭。

Come and see me
Sing me to sleep
Come and free me
Or hold me if i need to weep
Or maybe it’s not the season
Or maybe it’s not the year
Or maybe there’s no good reason
Why i’m locked up inside
Just cause they wanna hide me
The moon goes bright
The darker they make my night

Unplayed pianos
Are often by a window
In a room where nobody loved goes
She sits alone with her silent song
Somebody bring her home

Unplayed piano (unplayed piano)
Still holds a tune (still holds a tune)
Lock on the lid (years, years pass by)
In a stale, stale room (in the changing of the moon)
Maybe it’s not that easy (too many windows)
Or maybe it’s not that hard (in a stale, stale room)
Maybe they could release me (stale, stale room)
Let the people decide
I’ve got nothing to hide
I’ve done nothing wrong
So why’ve i been here so long?

Unplayed pianos
Are often by a window
In a room where nobody loved goes
She sits alone with her silent song
Somebody bring her home

Unplayed pianos
Are often by a window
In a room where nobody loved goes
She sits alone with her silent song
Somebody bring her home

Unplayed piano (unplayed piano)
Still holds a tune
Years pass by
In the changing of the moon

9 Crimes (Live)

Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I’d do
It’s the wrong kind of place
To be thinking of you
It’s the wrong time
For somebody new
It’s a small crime
And I’ve got no excuse

Is that alright?
Give my gun away when it’s loaded
Is that alright?
If you don’t shoot it how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright?
Give my gun away when it’s loaded
Is that alright
With you?

Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I’d do
It’s the wrong kind of place
To be cheating on you
It’s the wrong time
She’s pulling me through
It’s a small crime
And I’ve got no excuse

Is that alright?
Give my gun away when it’s loaded
Is that alright?
If you dont shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright?
If I give my gun away when it’s loaded
Is that alright
Is that alright with you?

Is that alright?
If I give my gun away when it’s loaded
Is that alright?
If you don’t shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright?
If I give my gun away when it’s loaded
Is that alright
Is that alright with you?

Is that alright?
Is that alright?
Is that alright?
Is that alright?
Is that alright?
Is that alright with you?

No…
