翻唱點播機9:Yellow

Coldplay / Parachutes

      〈YellowColdplay2000年首張專輯降落傘Parachutes的主打歌,抒情小品的單戀心絮引發了許多共鳴,一鏡到底的MV簡簡單單卻也明確。畢竟已是有頗有地位的情歌,想來翻唱也很多,事實上也真的不少,但若說是真的很突出,很出色的,卻出乎意料地少。或許是出自個人偏見吧,之前許多翻唱,會被挑出來的都是給人哇~的感覺,但Yellow的翻唱給人的卻是嗯~,不上不下,要說不好聽也不是,就是沒有太特別的感覺。

  有MV內容的影片都被禁止嵌入,只能放歌詞版的。


Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah they were all yellow,

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called yellow

So then I took my turn
Oh all the things I've done
And it was all yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
D'you know you know I love you so
You know I love you so

I swam across
I jumped across for you
Oh all the things you do
Cause you were all yellow

I drew a line
I drew a line for you
Oh what a thing to do
And it was all yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
D'you know for you i bleed myself dry
For you i bleed myself dry

Its true look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine
look at the stars look how they shine for you

 

Scala And Kolacny Brothers / It All Leads To This

  史卡蕾女聲合唱團Scala & Kolacny Brothers是比利時女聲合唱團,為兩兄弟所發起的歌唱組合,由Stijn Kolacny當製作人,Kolacny Brothers擔任鋼琴伴奏與編曲。在19964月開始試唱的時候,僅有18位歌手入選,如今已是超過兩百味的大團。他們在流行樂與搖滾樂中尋找古典音樂的切入點,也曾翻過許多知名樂團的歌曲如NirvanaRadioheadU2MuseDepeche ModeRammstein。在2000年獲得比利時的'Choir of the Year

  而從首張專輯《Scala On The Rocks以來,樂團已經發了九張專輯,還在2006年發行了演唱紀錄專輯Völkerball2008年樂團受邀為2002年逝世的比利時傳奇歌手Pierre Rapsat作紀念演出,此趟旅程大大提升他們在比利時法語群眾間的知名度。他們最新的近況則是在今年七月的電影The Social Network中,會出現他們翻唱RadioheadCreep

  大編制合唱與鋼琴的伴奏,讓Yellow聽起來有另一番風味,或許有時聽起來太過晶瑩,太過催情,卻華麗地恰當。


Sweetheart: Our Favorite Artists Sing Their Favorite Love Songs

  或許你不知道Jem是誰,但喜愛美國影集和電影的人會發現原來自己聽了她許多歌,〈Wish I〉、〈Maybe I'm Amazed〉、〈Just a Ride〉、〈They〉、〈Save Me〉、〈24〉、〈It's Amazing〉。初識慵懶的歌聲,讓我還誤以為她是爵士女聲,後來才發現原來是個創作歌手。目前只發行兩張專輯《Finally Woken(2004)Down To Earth(2008)的她,因為歌曲大量被影集使用,已經擁有相當程度的人氣與知名度。歌曲融合了搖滾新浪潮電子trip-hop,並不怎麼是我的菜,但這首配合星巴克情人節企劃《Sweetheart: Our Favorite Artists Sing Their Favorite Love Songs》翻唱的〈Yellow〉沒有了激昂,柔柔順順地唱著,卻頗有味道。



Orleya / Sings

  Orleya的翻唱專輯Sings,輕輕柔柔的詮釋不一定是最棒的選擇,卻又恰到好處地流露出乾淨的韻味,最後一曲收錄的Yellow,不曉得為何讓我有種想哭的感覺。




       個人還滿喜歡張懸的翻唱,她唱出自己的味道。 

         最後,送上Orelya的〈Anymore〉。
