這幾日因為電視影集Lie to Me被製播的Fox Network停掉,在tumblr上不時看到哀號甚至謾罵的網友心聲,Tim Roth的照片一直出現,就想起這部我最喜歡的Tim Roth電影來:『海上鋼琴師』。

 

電影配樂由大師Ennio Morricone操刀,其精彩不用多介紹。在整張專輯裡,這首Lost Boy Calling因為等於述了1900的心境(有人說,根本是長大的1900和童年的1900在對話),我尤其喜歡。作詞者是前Pink Floyd元老Roger Waters, 中間的吉他solo來自Eddie Van Helen,是讓人(讓我)非常驚訝的組合。

 

1900是個極具天賦的鋼琴師,自在襁褓時被船員在船上發現後,一生從未離開那艘來往大西洋兩岸的船。即使之間對一個女孩產生愛慕之情(順帶一提,代表這段感情的playing love也非常動人),一度想下船到紐約上岸,然而還是在走到舷梯一半時,又回到船上。

 

1900的裹足不前,不完全是在一個封鎖的環境裡太久,而怕適應不良(當然會有一點),而是那個身為棄嬰的陰影及沒有安全感的lost boy,一直活在心中,縈迴不去。照歌詞的說法,完全是怕再度受到傷害,再被這個世界離棄,所以即使航行多年的船隻都要報廢了,他還是要與它同在。

 


Composer: Ennio Morricone

Lyric and vocal: Roger Waters

Guitar Solo: Eddie Van Helen

 



這個你水管clip, 等於也交待了1900一生,船上的歲月

 

 

 

Come hold me now
I am not gone
I would not leave you here alone
In this dead calm beneath the waves
I can still hear those lost boys calling

You could not speak
You were afraid
To take the risk of being left again
And so you tipped your hat and waved and then
You turned back up the gangway of that steel tomb again

And in Mott street in July
When I hear those seabirds cry
I hold the child
The child in the man
The child that we leave behind

And in Mott street in July
When I hear those seabirds cry
I hold the child
The child in the man
The child that we leave behind

The spotlight fades
The boys disband
The final notes lie mute upon the sand
And in the silence of the grave
I can still hear those lost boys calling

We left them there
When they were young
The men were gone until the west was won
And now there's nothing left but time to kill
You never took us fishin' dad and now you never will

And in Mott street in July
When I hear those seabirds cry
I hold the child
The child in the man
The child that we leave behind
