最佳欧美作词 提名
Best Western Lyrics Nominations
我发现英文歌的词很有意思,一部分非常次,毫无内容,另一部分相当精品,内容深刻而且措辞也相当好,感觉就像国语歌词和粤语歌词合在一个乐坛了……

Bye Bye
I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on I wish
I could talk to you for a while
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by
And it’s true that you’ve
Reached a better place
Still I’d give the world to see your face
And be right here next to you
But it’s like you’re gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say
Bye bye
这首歌从出来也就是打得歌词牌,唱给死去的亲人,这已经足够感人了,何况这首歌出来的时候正好赶上汶川大地震,触景生情,那句“Lift your head to the sky, ‘cause we will never say bye”便无法从我脑海里消失了。

Come Home
I get lost in the beauty
Of everything I see
The world ain’t as half as bad
As they paint it to be
If all the sons
If all the daughters
Stopped to take it in
Well hopefully the hate subsides and the love can begin
It might start now
Well maybe I’m just dreaming out loud
这首专辑的点题歌,也是OneRepublic整张专辑歌词最出色的,超越了Stop and Stare。……忽然觉得我好像就是特喜欢这种感慨人生的词,对情歌一向不太感兴趣。

Dead And Gone
I turn my head to the east
I don’t see nobody by my side
I turn my head to the west
Still nobody in sight
So I turn my head to the north
Swallow that pill that they call pride
That old me is dead and gone
But the new me will be alright
T.I.可能是如今说唱的人里仅有的几个作品耐听的人之一了,这首歌搭上老搭档Justin Timberlake,水平自然不用说。而说唱乐本来重点就在词,不好的词根本就不能成为好歌了。

Piazza, New York Catcher
San Francisco’s calling us, the Giants and Mets will play
Piazza, New York catcher, are you straight or are you gay?
We hung about the stadium, we’ve got no place to stay
We hung about the tenderloin and tenderly you tell
About the saddest book you ever read, it always makes you cry
The statue’s crying too and well he may
这是迄今为止我见过内容最丰富的歌词了,里面讲了无数的人和事,虽然一半我都不明白,但是只觉得这词写得无比美好,唱起来也无比和谐……

Sorry, Blame It On Me
I’m sorry that I grew up way to fast
I wish I would’ve listened and not be so bad
I’m sorry that your life turned out this way
I’m sorry that the feds came and took me away
I understand that there’s some problems
And I’m not too blind to know
All the pain you kept inside you
Even though you might not show
If I can’t apologize for being wrong
Then it’s just a shame on me
I’ll be the reason for your pain
And you can put the blame on me
又一首讲人生,而这首歌很有意思,所有的内容都是Akon的道歉,为自己和别人的各种事道歉,借此讲述了多种现实的悲惨人生……虽然这首歌旋律重复性如此之高,却还是因为好词而让我不断重播。

Apologize
OneRepublic ft. Timbaland
Ryan Tedder

都得了最佳作曲奖了,还能不进十大么。能让OneRepublic从MySpace的小乐队红火到今天这个程度,能在Billboard前排位置上停留近一年,这样的作品都不需要什么评语了。“谁听谁知道”。
