2009音乐独立奖…Day 10

最佳欧美作词 获奖者
Best Western Lyrics Winner
 

Piazza, New York Catcher
Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll sail around the world
I will be your Ferdinand and you my wayward girl
How many nights of talking in hotel rooms can you take?
How many nights of limping round on pagan holidays?
Oh elope with me in private and we’ll set something ablaze
A trail for the devil to erase
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
I love you I’ve a drowning grip on your adoring face
I love you my responsibility has found a place
Beside you and strong warnings in the guise of gentle words
Come wave upon me from the family why not that’s absurd
“You’ll take care of her, I know it, you will do a better job”
Maybe, but not what she deserves
Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll drink ourselves awake
We’ll taste the coffee houses and award certificates
A privy seal to keep the feel of 1960 style
We’ll comment on the decor and we’ll help the passer by
And at dusk when work is over we’ll continue the debate
In a borrowed bedroom virginal and spare
The catcher hits for .318 and catches every day
The pitcher puts religion first and rests on holidays
He goes into cathedrals and lies prostrate on the floor
He knows the drink affects his speed he’s praying for a doorway
Back into the life he wants and the confession of the bench
Life outside the diamond is a wrench
I wish that you were here with me to pass the dull weekend
I know it wouldn’t come to love, my heroine pretend
A lady stepping from the songs we love until this day
You’d settle for an epitaph like “Walk Away, Renee”
The sun upon the roof in winter will draw you out like a flower
Meet you at the statue in an hour
Meet you at the statue in an hour
歌词始终是不该孤立于音乐外的,这首优美如风景画的歌词就是在同样美好的旋律下才散发出如此让人惊叹的魅力的。

 

 

 

最佳中文作曲 提名
Best Chinese Composition Nominations
就像我之前说的,08年华语乐坛是一个失败,至少我这么觉得。作曲的责任自然最重,因为歌最终是用来听的,好的旋律对音乐的作用是决定性的。这一年来,好听的歌很多,经典的却屈指可数。这里提名的其实并非最好的五首作曲,只是我不想不断重复说许巍和彭坦(彭坦的作品还是07年的),另外也想不遗忘一些好歌。但不得不说的是,这一年我真的很失望。

陈台证 for 捞月亮的人
陈台证的作品我向来没什么感觉,而且总觉得这个人对千嬅的没落负有直接责任。但这首歌却无疑昰一个成功,好的旋律让林若宁俗如白开水的词也稍微有了光彩。

许巍 for 难忘的一天
这首歌的旋律堪称完美,是许巍最好的作品之一。不听这首歌,几乎错过了08年一半的华语乐坛。

马奕强 for 小木马
虽然并不够完美,但至少算是精品之作,好过很多跟风“中国风”的作品。可能张信哲的演绎也有加分吧。

彭均 for 因为有你
这首歌词多少算是俗烂,演绎偏于炒作的歌,完全就是靠着相当高水准的作曲来支撑着。这首歌的旋律同样是08年最高的作品之一。

Christopher Chak for 钟无艳
我只听过泽日生的两首作品,这个和富士山下,很像,也许他只会写这一个旋律,但是已经足够让我们铭记这个人了,因为这首歌完美的诠释了什么是K歌与隽永的结合,给那些听到K歌就大放厥词仿佛自己很高雅的人一个响亮的耳光。因为最好听的,永远是最好听的那一首。

 

十佳中文单曲 No.4
曲目
歌手
作者
然后怎样
陈奕迅
曲世聪/林夕
虽然旋律上多少有点硬,但依旧是好作品。词是林夕近年来最高水准的作品之一,给这首歌增添了相当的魅力。而最后就是陈奕迅,这三个字在当今的华语乐坛男歌手里,是毫无疑问的最高。这些凑在一起,就有了这首将来你会在无数张精选集里见到的歌曲。
