前一陣子我發一篇食記
有位網友留言說「我以為你是旅遊部落客」
看完之後有點傻眼
因為我明明食記寫得比遊記還多啊...@@
而且重點是...
我部落格只是個人部落格
痞客邦強制要選分類的話
我是想以「美食情報」的內容為主
但也沒有要侷限只能寫什麼啦!
就只要自己想分享的內容都可以寫
可能包括生活大小事、電影心得有的沒有的
像這篇就是想要分享一首我最近著魔喜歡的一首西洋歌曲給大家...

sia

「Sia(希雅)」
一個大部份朋友可能聽到沒聽過的名字
(全名是Sia Kate Isobelle Furler)
是一位澳洲裔的歌手兼創作人
我最近迷上的是她的一首「Chandelier(水晶吊燈)」
不過後來做了功課
發現她其實還寫過好幾首紅遍全世界、膾炙人口的金曲
其中包括了...



Rihanna(蕾哈娜)的「Diamonds(鑽石)」

p.s.聽說她還曾幫Katy Perry(凱蒂·佩芮)、 Britney Spears(小甜甜布蘭妮)、 Beyonce(碧昂絲)等大牌歌手寫過歌

歌詞的部份
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

Find light in the beautiful sea
I choose to be happy
You and I, you and I
We're like diamonds in the sky

You're a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I'm alive
We're like diamonds in the sky

I knew that we'd become one right away
Oh, right away
At first sight I left the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

So shine bright, tonight you and I
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shining bright like a diamond
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shining bright like a diamond
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Palms rise to the universe
As we moonshine and molly
Feel the warmth, we'll never die
We're like diamonds in the sky

You're a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I'm alive
We're like diamonds in the sky

At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

So shine bright, tonight you and I
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shining bright like a diamond
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shining bright like a diamond
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

So shine bright, tonight you and I
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond



還有法國DJ兼音樂製作人David Guetta(大衛·庫塔)那首紅遍半邊天的「Titanium(金剛不壞)」
也是由Sia填詞並演唱
從這兩首歌應該可以看出一點Sia的風格了吧!?

歌詞的部份
[Sia:]
You shout it out
But I can't hear a word you say
I'm talking loud not saying much
I'm criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

[Chorus:]
I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium

[Sia:]
Cut me down
But it's you who have further to fall
Ghost town, haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I'm talking loud not saying much

[Chorus:]I'm bulletproof, nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium

[Sia:]
Stone-hard, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone-hard, this bulletproof glass
[Chorus:]
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium



XBOX 360的遊戲「Prince of Persia(波斯王子4)」宣傳影片的主題曲「Breathe Me」
既舒服又有空靈感
也是由Sia所創作與演唱

p.s.這首歌除了遊戲「Prince of Persia」有使用
美國影集「Six Feet Under(六呎風雲)」、「CSI: Crime Scene Investigation(CSI犯罪現場)」跟美國知名內衣大廠「Victoria's Secret」的Fashion Show都有選用她這首歌



「Breathe Me」的Live完整版

歌詞的部份
Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And the worst part is there's no one else to blame

Be my friend, hold me
Wrap me up, unfold me
I am small, and needy
Warm me up and breathe me

Ouch, I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found
Yeah, I think that I might break
Lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend, hold me
Wrap me up, unfold me
I am small, and needy
Warm me up and breathe me

Be my friend, hold me
Wrap me up, unfold me
I am small, and needy
Warm me up and breathe me



Flo Rida(佛羅里達)的「Wild Ones(狂野嘻哈佬)」
也找來Sia獻聲

歌詞的部份
[Sia - Hook]
Hey I heard you were a wild one
Oooh
If I took you home
It'd be a home run
Show me how you'll do

I wanna shut down all the clubs
With you
Hey I heard you like the wild ones
Oooh

[Flo Rida]
I like crazy, foolish, stupid
Party going wild, fist pumping
Music, I might lose it
Blast to the roof, that's how we do'z it
I don't care the night, she don't care we like
Almost dared the right five
Ready to get live, ain't no surprise
Take me so high, jumping no stop
Surfing the crowd
Oooh
Said I gotta be the man
When they heading my van, might check one too
Shut them down in the club while the playboy does it, and y'all get lose lose
After bottle, we all get bit and again tomorrow
Gotta break loose cause that's the motto
Club shuts down, I heard you're super models

[Sia - Hook]
Hey I heard you were a wild one
Oooh
If I took you home
It'd be a home run
Show me how you'll do

I wanna shut down all the clubs
With you
Hey I heard you like the wild ones
Oooh

[Flo Rida]
Party rocker, foot show stopper
More shampoo
Number one, club popper
Got a hangover like too much vodka
Can't see me with ten binoculars
So cool
No doubt by the end of the night
Got the clothes coming off
Til I make that move
Somehow, someway, gotta raise the roof, roof
All black shades when the sun come through
Oh, it's on like everything goes
Round up baby til the freaky show
What happens to that body, it's a private show
Stays right here, private show
I like em untamed, don't tell me how pain
Tell them this, bottoms up with the champagne
My life, coming harder than we hit play
Do you busy with the bail, were you insane

[Sia - Hook]
Hey I heard you were a wild one
Oooh
If I took you home
It'd be a home run
Show me how you'll do

I wanna shut down all the clubs
With you
Hey I heard you like the wild ones
Oooh

[Bridge]
I am a wild one
Break me in
Saddle me up and let's begin
I am a wild one
Tame me now
Running with wolves
And i'm on the prowl

Show you another side of me
A side you would never thought you would see
Tell that body
Gotta make sure do you have enough
I ain't lie the wilds don't lie

[Sia - Hook]
Hey I heard you were a wild one
Oooh
If I took you home
It'd be a home run
Show me how you'll do

I want to shut down the club
With you
Hey I heard you like the wild ones
Oooh

I am a wild one
Break me in
Saddle me up and let's begin
I am a wild one
Tame me now
Running with wolves
And i'm on the prowl....



不過我真正注意到「Sia」這個人
是因為某天不小心從YouTube聽歌
看到了她的「Chandelier(水晶吊燈)」這支MV
這支MV我第一次看的時候
完全被那個行為(舞姿)超詭異的小女孩給吸引注目光
我通常晚上回家都是在床上邊聽歌邊滑手機
可是當我看到這MV幾乎是一鏡到底(是沒有完全一鏡到底啦...)的拍攝手法加上這很不尋常的氛圍時
整個就目不轉睛地想把它看完...
我不否認我是一個很容易被「另類」影像給吸引的人
但這支MV不只是個純粹在搞怪的MV
其實仔細去研究歌詞的話
會發現這小女孩的動作是在表達出一種意境
(每個人的領悟力跟觀感不同
所以一定也會有人覺得她只是在耍白痴之類的...)

歌詞的內容有點抽象
有提到想像鳥兒一樣翱翔、從水晶吊燈上擺動之類的
不過其實講的是女孩們總是會遇到許多不如意的事
對未來充滿了徬徨與無助
只有藉由酒精麻醉自己來得到暫時的快樂
但心裡也明白不能一直這樣下去
聽說這是Sia本人這幾年在歷經男友離開人間與工作低潮期的真實寫照
所以唱起來特別有那種發自內心並唱到人心坎裡的那種感覺
滄桑中帶有爆發力又有靈性
跟流行樂界大部份天后級的人物有很大的差異
硬要說的話...
有人說她跟英國電子民謠天后Dido同等級
但我更喜歡Sia另類的特質
(不好意思
我不是專門在鑽研音樂的人
所以太專業的什麼曲風專有名詞我寫不出來
我只能淺顯地敘述)

這首「Chandelier」目前在YouTube的點閱率已經超過兩億人次...
收錄「Chandelier」的新專輯「1000 Forms of Fear(一千種恐懼)」在澳洲拿到了雙白金唱片的肯定
而且在2014年美國最有公信力的Billboard(告示牌排行榜)拿到了冠軍寶座
真的超屌!!!

歌詞的部份
Party girls don't get hurt
Can't feel anything, when will I learn
I push it down, push it down

I'm the one "for a good time call"
Phone's blowin' up, they're ringin' my doorbell
I feel the love, feel the love

[Pre-Chorus]
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink

Throw 'em back, 'til I lose count

[Chorus]
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

But I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cos I'm just holding on for tonight
Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cos I'm just holding on for tonight
On for tonight

Sun is up, I'm a mess
Gotta get out now, gotta run from this
Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

[Pre-Chorus]
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink

[Chorus]
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier



關於Sia這位歌手的背景
還有很多可以介紹
不過我想會看我部落格的朋友應該也不會對一個之前沒聽過的西洋歌手的背景有深入了解的欲望
所以以下分享幾支「Chandelier」的相關影片
我想...用影片的方式搭配上她迷人的嗓音應該比較能引起你們的注意吧!?
首先這支是MV中那位小女孩Maddie Ziegler上「ellen show(艾倫秀)」(就是左左右右上的那個美國脫口秀...)重現MV中的整段表演
再配上Sia的Live演唱
很精彩又很獨特
真的很值得一看!
(那支舞看起來很隨興
不過其實是有精心安排過的)

maddie

順帶一提
這位Maddie Ziegler才11歲
(她網路上的一些照片看起來非常超齡...)
她先是在一個美國舞蹈實境節目「Dance Moms」嶄露頭角
後來憑藉著天份與努力
已經在很多大型的舞臺演出過了
現在因為「Chandelier」的爆紅
上節目的邀約不斷
以後應該會有大好的前程吧!?

p.s.她不算非常漂亮、可愛的類型
但有一種古靈精怪的特質



接下來分享幾個我覺得比較好的網路(素人?)歌手翻唱的版本
首先這版本來自亞裔的Jason Chen
(雖然跟原版的味道差蠻多的
但男生可以把這首歌唱成這樣已經很強了...)



Jasmine Thompson這女生唱得版本著重於「空靈」的部份
比較沒有爆發力
但也是另一種感覺



這個版本的演唱者叫Charlie Puth
是三個翻唱版本中我最喜歡的

p.s.網路上其實還有不少人翻唱過
甚至今年的「America's Got Talent(美國達人秀)」、澳洲的「The X Factor(X元素,歌唱選秀節目)」、澳洲版的「Voice」都有參賽者選唱「Chandelier」這首歌
不過我都沒有那麼喜歡她們的版本
大家真的有興趣的話可以再上YouTube找找看



還有人純粹想紅
拍這種對嘴MV來賣弄自己的肉體.......................
(真的很想問「先生,你有事嗎?」)



一般來說
唱歌走靈性路線的女歌手通常都會很「矜」
但是Sia這位女歌手一點都沒有這方面的包袱
她可以很空靈、很深情
但是也可以很可愛、很俏皮
在她這首「You've Changed」的MV中可以看出她其實不是走「不食人間煙火」路線的人...
(這是她早期的作品)



這支「Soon We'll Be Found」的MV也很厲害
一開始看起來平淡無奇
可是越看越有驚奇感!
(這是她早期的作品)



最後這支MV「Clap Your Hands」
是Sia早期的作品
看完之後我只能說「Sia...妳真的也太沒包袱了一點......」
MV中她扮成無尾熊、青蛙...甚至還咬竹蜻蜓扮成飛機.......
根本比搞笑藝人還要搞笑
完全顛覆我原本對她「很神秘」、「有點灰暗」的印象
(這是她早期的作品)



如果你跟我一樣
除了愛上「Chandelier」這首歌以外
更對Maddie Ziegler的舞情有獨鍾的話
我還有找到兩個不太一樣的版本可以供你們解解饞
第一個是在戶外Live的表演
Maddie跟另外兩個大人都畫上小丑妝一起跳舞
(那兩個大人比較像伴舞的性質)



第二支影片是Maddie跟Allison Holker的雙人舞蹈
一開始看有一點點搞笑的感覺
可是越看越覺得兩個人都超強
(Allison Holker是專業女舞者
得過很多舞蹈比賽的獎
還演出過一些歌舞相關的偶像劇、電影...等等)



你(妳)也有想學這支舞蹈的衝動嗎?
這支短片是Maddie在美國深夜脫口秀「Jimmy Kimmel Live」教主持人Jimmy Kimmel和節目班底Guillermo跳MV中那支舞
請從頭看到尾
但請不要邊吃東西或喝飲料邊看
因為真的太噴飯了!!!
(聽得懂一點英文會更好笑...)


好了
以上就是對Sia跟她的「Chandelier」還有小舞者Maddie的一些分享
希望大家會喜歡
如果以後再發現什麼好聽、好看但在台灣還不是那麼耳熟能詳的音樂、戲劇等等
我會再與大家分享
謝謝收看

p.s.「台灣索尼音樂/ SONY MUSIC」有代理她這張「1000 Forms of Fear」
有興趣的朋友可以參考看看唷~
