Life(1999年的專輯,Supernatural[不可思議])

I'm afraid of the dark,
'specially when I'm in a park
And there's no-one else around,
Ooh, i get the shivers

I don't want to see a ghost,
it's a sight that I fear most
I'd rather have a piece of toast and
watch the evening news

[ Life, oh life, oh life, oh life, doo,
doot doot dooo. Life, oh life, oh life,
oh life, doo, doot dooo ]

I'm a superstitious girl,
I'm the worst in the world
Never walk under ladders,
I keep a rabbit's tail
I'll take you up on a dare, anytime, anywhere
Name the place, I'll be there, bungee jumping,
I don't care!

Repeat []

So after all is said and done
I know I'm not the only one
Life indeed can be fun, if you really want to
Sometimes living out your dreams,
Ain't as easy as it seems
You wanna fly around the world,
In a beautiful balloon

先是於1992年以“Mind Adventure”專輯中一首 主題看似大膽的單曲「Feel So High」,震驚英國樂壇,接著又於1995年以“I Ain't Moving” 中唱作俱佳的「 You Gotta Be 」一曲勇奪全美 排行Top 5,引起全球樂迷矚目的英國女歌手Des'ree ,其低沉且神祕的嗓音,有著特殊的溫柔魔力足 以撫慰或撼動樂迷的心,無怪乎凡是看過電影“ 羅蜜歐與茱麗葉”的影迷或樂迷,都會為她所演唱的那首「I'm Kissing You」而感動不已。

此輯是Des'ree三年來的首張全新作品,專輯中共收錄12首新作。首支單曲「Life」是在深田恭 子主演日劇「To Heart世紀末戀愛預言」中的插 曲,綻現輕盈的都會風情,是首令人一聽就會愛 上的輕爵士流行佳作;Des'ree略帶慵懶感的嗓音,舒服地鋪展出全曲絲緞般的柔滑感受。

而之前她為電影“羅密歐與茱麗葉”所演唱的動 人抒情歌曲「I'm Kissing You」亦收錄本專輯 中;Gospel式的曲調架構,將Des'ree精湛的唱 功淋漓盡致地展現無遺;優雅歌聲穿梭在粼粼吉 他彈撥間的「Indigo Daisies」,則以詞曲搭築出朦朧的詩意美境。

整張專輯反映出成長於Duke Ellington、Stevie Wonder和Bob Marley等人音樂中的Des'ree在音樂創作及演唱方面所受之影響,因此爵士、流行 、雷鬼、靈魂、福音....等等各類元素,都潛伏 在專輯裡的每一個角落。Des'ree的歌聲本身就是天賦的精緻雕琢,聆聽本張專輯更是一次酣暢 的心靈饗宴。


另外推薦:You Gotta Be,也相當好聽



You gotta be


Listen as your day unfolds,
challenge what your future holds
Try to keep your head up to the sky
Lovers they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted,
don't be shamed to cry
You gotta be..

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold,
you gotta be wiser
You gotta hard, you gotta be tough,
you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm,
you gotta stay together.
All I know, all I know
Love will save the day

Herald what your mother said
Read the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzle
in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
My oh my, you gotta be..

Time asks no questions, it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning, can't stop it if you tried to
The best part is danger staring you in the face

Got to be bad. Got to be bold
Got to be wise. Don't ever be cold
Got to be hard. Not too, too hard
All I know is, love will save the day
