America - A Horse With No Name

2010年6月7日 | 分类: 音乐故事 | 标签: , , | 字体: 超大


  当你一听见America乐队的这首“A Horse With No Name”的时候就能够突然感觉自己置身于那广漠、荒凉的郊外或者沙漠戈壁之中,自己独身一人向着远方走着,有目标又似乎有点游离,带着些许苍凉,感受着无法更改的宿命。

  第一次听见这首歌是小程在几年前玩GTA(侠盗猎车手)的时候,接触过这个伟大游戏的朋友都知道里面一个很吸引人之处就是众多的radio频道,播放着几百首各式各样的经典歌曲,小程很喜欢在骑着山地摩托驰骋在郊区、荒无人烟的地方听这首“A Horse With No Name”,可惜当时不知道这首歌的名字,等后来没玩了就有点忘了。

  直到最近在看Friends六人行)第5季22集时出现了一个配乐,就是这首“A Horse With No Name”,那场景中joey刚好是开着车来到了沙漠中,歌也很适合那个场景,这次我花了点时间查了查,总算把歌名查到了,也就顺水推舟将歌曲拿下。

  转念一想,这么好听的歌不分享给大家也说不过去。之后我还顺便看了看乐队和此曲的介绍,这歌还曾是70年代Billboard上的冠军单曲呢。

on the first part of the journey
i was looking at all the life
there were plants and birds and rocks and things
there was sand and hills and rings
the first thing i met was a fly with a buzz
and the sky with no clouds
the heat was hot and the ground was dry
but the air was full of sound
i've been through the desert on a horse with no name
it felt good to be out of the rain
in the desert you can remember your name
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
la, la ...
after two days in the desert sun
my skin began to turn red
after three days in the desert fun
i was looking at a river bed
and the story it told of a river that flowed
made me sad to think it was dead
you see i've been through the desert on a horse with no name
it felt good to be out of the rain
in the desert you can remember your name
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
la, la ...
after nine days i let the horse run free
'cause the desert had turned to sea
there were plants and birds and rocks and things
there was sand and hills and rings
the ocean is a desert with it's life underground
and a perfect disguise above
under the cities lies a heart made of ground
but the humans will give no love
you see i've been through the desert on a horse with no name
it felt good to be out of the rain
in the desert you can remember your name
'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
la, la
