【电音流行】Linkin Park - Heavy

消声三年的林肯公园(Linkin Park)与唱作型才女Kiiara合作单曲“Heavy”。歌词中谈及他们对“偏执”心灵状态的解读,如何救赎内心的困顿,释放承受的压力。

Linkin Park是一组来自美国加利福尼亚州的摇滚乐队,融合了说唱、重金属、嘻哈乐以及电子舞曲等多种风格。2000年发行的首张大碟《混合理论》(Hybrid Theory)每一首都是说唱金属的经典之作。乐团在歌词中鲜明地反映了E时代年轻人的心声,剖析了他们的迷惘、苦闷和愤怒。

《Heavy》

I don't like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down

I wanna let go but there's comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything's about me

Yeah I drive myself crazy
'Cause I can't escape the gravity
I'm holding on

Why is everything so heavy
Holding on

So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what's bringing me down
If I just let go I'd be set free
Holding on

Why is everything so heavy
You say that I'm paranoid

But I'm pretty sure the world is out to get me
It's not like I make the choice

To let my mind stay so fucking messy
I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same

I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same
I'm holding on

Why is everything so heavy
Holding on

So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what's bringing me down
If I just let go I'd be set free
Holding on

Why is everything so heavy
I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same

I know I'm not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning round me just the same

And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything's about me
I'm holding on

Why is everything so heavy
Holding on

So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what's bringing me down
If I just let go I'd be set free
Holding on

Why is everything so heavy
Why is everything so heavy
Why is everything so heavy
Why is everything so heavy

【另类摇滚】Workingman's Hands - Fountains of Wayne

专辑封面是一颗渴望突破灰暗生活向往碰触天空的树。韦恩喷泉乐队(Fountains of Wayne)主唱清澈中带点变扭的声音,喷涌出一种青春期向成年期过渡的感觉。

Fountains of Wayne成立于1996年,由亚当.施辛格(Adam Schlesinger)和克里斯.克林伍德(Chris Collingwood)组建,后来又补充了乔迪.波特(Jody Porter)以及布莱恩.杨(Brian Young)。1999年第二张专辑《Utopia Parkway》被多个杂志媒体评选为“年度最佳”之一,2003年第三张专辑《Welcome Interstate Managers》获格莱美提名。

A sigh of relief

At completion of a well-laid plan

It's wearing the day long

And breaking the skin

In the palms of the workingman's hands

Pull and don't push

Edge around the gardens and walks

And as hard as the workingman's hands
那工人努力工作的双手

Now your Uncle John walked

A mile to school

In a storm and it was uphill both ways

Oh, you save your money for a hole in the ground

A black car and a long wall of roses

Could use some fresh paint
