Soul Love.

  听David Bowie的时候我时常想,什么是摇滚。不得不承认的是,不论怎样沉迷甚至模仿,我们都无法进入真正的摇滚世界。即使听着他唱You’re not alone感动到失语,也不知道这个美丽的男子身着华丽的装站在舞台上凝视他的麦时,是怎样的心情。
  摇滚的世界对我来说一直是神秘。你总是带着笑提醒我,那里多沉沦那里多堕落,会怕我接受不了。其实在我很早之前的想象里,并不是那个样子的。没有地下没有那些让人兴奋的药片,但要说的是,他们曾经确实离我很远。摇滚。Rock ‘N’ Roll,单是这样的形容,也会让人有禁受不住震动的错觉。
  对很多事物我们是本能地害怕接近,在因一些原因开始有所接触的时候幻想自己就是属于那个世界的。却总在最关键的时刻发现,属性这东西多数情况下是已长好的皮囊,扯下来或贴上去都是痛苦并且需要时间抚平的事情。
  不过当耳边的Five Years响起,我开始接受的很坦然,喜欢是非刻意的,是神清气爽的。
  Star.
  <I could do with the money. I’m so wiped out with things as they are. I’d send my photograph to my honey. And I’d c’mon like a regular superstar.
  I could fall asleep at night as a rock&roll star. I could fall in love all right as a rock&roll star.>
  我想摇滚就是要这样的劲。够劲。老男人的摇滚梦。Rock & Roll Star。这样的歌词配上这样的旋律,是我定义中摇滚的中性表现。(BTW超人原谅我,听到他的歌的时候我总是觉得是个老男人在唱。够骚够风韵的老男人。)
  Hang onto yourself.
  <So come on, come one, we’ve really got a good thing going. Well come on, well come on, if you think we’re gonna make it. You better hang onto yourself.>
  噢,怎么让我想到了Pulp Fiction的段子。想到那一男一女沉醉其中疯狂扭动出的一支不堪入目的舞…以及之后的黑色幽默结局还有我的窃喜。喜欢这样的无畏。David Bowie的音乐让我感受到很多随性,我不知道要怎样定义华丽摇滚,更不清楚它的演变历史,可就我的感受来讲,封面上的彩装男唱着这样无修饰最真实的歌,就是摇滚在我就理想的样子。
  Ziggy Stardust.
  <Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo. The kids were just crass, he was the nazz. With god given ass. He took it all too far. But boy could he play guitar.>
  这个男人在唱这首歌的时候是多大年纪啊。怎么在我看来摇滚就是海盗电台的那个正点老男人,就是Love Actually里的那个裸男,多真诚多可爱。Oh yeah, Ziggy played guitar。整首歌像是没有副歌部分,不过这样旋律的重复与交叉是让人喜欢的叙述方式。
  Five years.
  <I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour, drinking milk shakes cold and long.
  Smiling and waving and looking so fine. Don’t think you knew you were in the song.
  And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor.
  And I thought of ma and I want to get back there.
  Your face, your race the way that you talk.
  I kiss you, you’re beautiful, I want you to talk.>
  摇滚在讲故事。岁月与爱的故事。关于他爱的他恨的故事。这样的故事讲不完。爱这首歌的歌词。不同于Pulp黑色幽默式的哲理,这里有David Bowie的真实。当他最后唱到歇斯底里,我感受到了摇滚的力量。
  Suffragette City.
  <Hey man. My schooldays insane.
  Hey man. My works down the drain.
  Hey man. Well she’s a total blam-blam.
  She said she had to squeeze it but she… and then she…>
  超级喜欢这首!Hey man, 这样的节奏太让人兴奋。这就是摇滚的魅力吧,想想那些听着海盗电台不能自已的人们,你就知道我现在的样子了。David Bowie,这个老男人还真是有一首的,超人,他是我的摇滚教父。
  Starman.
  <There’s a starman waiting in the sky.
  He’s told us not to blow it cause he knows it’s all worthwhile.
  He told me: let the children lose it, let the children use it, let all the children boogie.>
  整张专辑最爱的旋律。不需要过多的描述,单是音乐与唱词进入的那一瞬就知道有多动人。恩,我居然用动人来形容了摇滚。
  Soul Love.
  <Love is careless in its choosing, sweeping over cross a baby.
  Love descends on those defenseless.
  Idiot love will spark the fusion.
  Inspirations have I none, just to touch the flaming dove.
  All I have is my love of love. And love is not loving.>
脑海里是海盗电台里那个小潮男与小潮女终于走到一起的画面。这样的爱与性是不是很正点。第一次看到那个小女子露笑的时候,我觉得整个世界都要融化了。是个男人都会招架不住的吧。恩,男子批判主义。还记得The Dreamers里最喜欢的情节。看似羞涩的少男与处女。其实这不是关键。但Eva Green的神情彻底打动了我。Love is careless in its choosing. But the soul love is always what we desire. 你什么时候能懂呢。
  Rock 'N' Roll Suicide.
  <You’re too old to lose it, too young to choose it.
  And the clocks waits so patiently on your song.
  You walk past a café but you don’t eat when you’ve lived too long.
  Oh, you’re a Rock ‘N’ Roll suicide.>
  最爱。摇滚静下来的最美形态就是这个样子。就是有故事的样子。我们不都是经不起故事与波澜的人吗。更经不起波澜后的如此平静,割到心头会痛却依然笑得迷人的平静。

  摇滚,是一场梦。就像Pirates Radio,你能说,它不是最美好最疯狂的梦吗。而这,也正是我所感受得到的David Bowie,以及他用灵魂所唱出的一首首歌。
  去看了他的视频,这个男人长的真俊俏。
  You’re not alone.
   You’re wonderful.
   Give me your hands.
   Give me. Your. Hands.
