Arctic Monkeys – A view from the afternoon

8 10 2008

聽首歌好嗎?感受一下MV想說的故事。

Anticipation has a habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there’ll be some love
Tonight there’ll be a ruckus yeah, regardless of what’s gone before

I want to see all of the things that we’ve already seen
The lairy girls hung out the window of the limousine
And of course its fancy dress
And they’re all looking quite full on
In bunny ears and devil horns in hell

Anticipation has a habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there’ll be some love
Tonight there’ll be a ruckus yeah, regardless of what’s gone before

I want to see all of the things that we’ve already seen
I want to see you take the jackpot out the fruit machine
And put it all back in
You’ve got to understand it you can never beat the bandit, no

And she won’t be surprised and she won’t be shocked
When she’s pressed the star after she’s pressed unlock
And there’s verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that it says is that you’ve drank a lot
You should bear that in mind tonight
bear that in mind, yeah you should
bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind
You can pour your heart out but her reasoning will block
Ought you send her after nine o’clock

Anticipation has a habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there’ll be some love
Tonight there’ll be a ruckus yeah, regardless of what’s gone before

And she won’t be surprised and she won’t be shocked
When she’s pressed the star after she’s pressed unlock
And there’s verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that it says is that you’ve drank a lot
You should bear that in mind tonight
bear that in mind, yeah you should
bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind

You can pour your heart out around 3 o clock
When the 2 for 1’s undone the writers block.





Blood Red Shoes – I Wish I Was Someone Better

5 09 2008

很適合莫名其妙被罵之後的心情,特別是一開始以大量鼓點帶進的前奏,不禁有種解放後的舒暢。

Made a mistake
I made a mistake
I wear the scars to show my shame

Made a mistake
I made a mistake
I wear the scars to show my shame

What should I do?
What should I do?
When I’m the one who can’t get through

What should I do?
What should I do?
When I’m the one hey, I’m the one to blame.

I (woo ooh oo)
Can’t (woo ooh oo)
See (woo ooh oo)
Past (woo ooh oo)
This (woo ooh oo)
Chance (woo ooh oo)
For us to (woo ooh oo)
Reconcile these doubts! (woo ooh oo)
They’ve all (woo ooh oo)
Gone on (woo ooh oo)
For far too long (woo ooh oo)
Yeah it goes on and on and on and on (woo ooh oo)
On and on and on and on (woo ooh oo)

Made a mistake
I made a mistake
I wear the scars to show my shame

Made a mistake
I made a mistake
I wear the scars to show my shame

What should I do?
What should I do?
When I’m the one who can’t get through

What should I do?
What should I do?
When I’m the one hey, I’m the one to blame.

Just (woo ooh oo)
Not (woo ooh oo)
Built (woo ooh oo)
For (woo ooh oo)
This (woo ooh oo)
Role (woo ooh oo)
And all the time (woo ooh oo)
Much better spent(woo ooh oo)
But it all drags on for far too long (woo ooh oo)
And it drags on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on

Made a mistake
I made a mistake
I wear the scars to show my shame

Made a mistake
I made a mistake
I wear the scars to show my shame

What should I do?
What should I do?
When I’m the one who can’t get through

What should I do?
What should I do?
When I’m the one hey, I’m the one to blame.

I wish I was someone better x14

Made a mistake x16





All These Things That I Have Done – The Killers

25 08 2008

olympic-rings-cool2

奧運熱延燒了將近一個月,也看了許多奧運相關贊助單位的廣告,對於這首歌有沒有很耳熟呢?

這是比較具有節慶氣氛的版本

這個演什麼我也看不太懂 orz

PS:幾經試驗似乎無法開啟,請到網站看吧。

一樣來個歌詞對照!
When there’s nowhere else to run
Is there room for one more son
One more son
If you can hold on
If you can hold on, hold on
I wanna stand up, I wanna let go
You know, you know – no you don’t, you don’t
I wanna shine on in the hearts of men
I want a meaning from the back of my broken hand

Another head aches, another heart breaks
I am so much older than I can take
And my affection, well it comes and goes
I need direction to perfection, no no no no

Help me out
Yeah, you know you got to help me out
Yeah, oh don’t you put me on the blackburner
You know you got to help me out

And when there’s nowhere else to run
Is there room for one more son
These changes ain’t changing me
The cold-hearted boy I used to be

Yeah, you know you got to help me out
Yeah, oh don’t you put me on the blackburner
You know you got to help me out
You’re gonna bring yourself down
Yeah, you’re gonna bring yourself down
Yeah, you’re gonna bring yourself down

I got soul, but I’m not a soldier
I got soul, but I’m not a soldier

Yeah, you know you got to help me out
Yeah, oh don’t you put me on the blackburner
You know you got to help me out
You’re gonna bring yourself down
You’re gonna bring yourself down
Yeah, oh don’t you put me on the blackburner
Yeah, you’re gonna bring yourself down

Over and out, last call for sin
While everyone’s lost, the battle is won
With all these things that I’ve done
All these things that I’ve done
If you can hold on
If you can hold on





我們在炎熱與抑鬱的夏天,無法停止抽煙。

My Little Airport





Placebo – Meds

4 07 2008

歌詞英文太簡單了,連我都看的懂,就不要班門弄斧破壞歌詞原意吧。
I was alone, Falling free,
Trying my best not to forget
What happened to us,
What happened to me,
What happened as I let it slip.

I was confused by the powers that be,
Forgetting names and faces.
Passersby were looking at me
As if they could erase it

Baby did you forget to take your meds?
Baby did you forget to take your meds?

I was alone,
Staring over the ledge,
Trying my best not to forget
All manner of joy
All manner of glee
And our one heroic pledge

How it mattered to us,
How it mattered to me,
And the consequences

I was confused,
By the birds and the bees
Forgetting if I meant it

Baby did you forget to take your meds?
Baby did you forget to take your meds?
Baby did you forget to take your meds?
Baby did you forget to take your meds?

And the Sex and the drugs and the complications
And the Sex and the drugs and the complications
And the Sex and the drugs and the complications
And the Sex and the drugs and the complications

Baby did you forget to take your meds?
Baby did you forget to take your meds?
Baby did you forget to take your meds?
Baby did you forget to take your meds?
Baby did you forget to take your meds?
Baby did you forget to take your meds?

I was alone,
Falling free,
Trying my best not to forget

你今天吃藥了嘛?工作再忙,也要記得吃藥喔!(謎之聲:肝為你做了這麼多,你為肝做了什麼?)





Broken Social Scene – KC Accidental

26 05 2008

我實在愛死裡面的小號。即使叫我上去吹,也能吹的比他們好,但是我無法吹出哪種狂放不羈,完全拋開小號的自尊,只為取悅台上台下的你我。(小號的自尊是?立正號還是起床號嗎?)

這也是少數幾個我跳跳跳完整首的歌…真是累死我了。聽他們的演唱會應該要每人配發一桶啤酒一邊乾杯一邊亂叫亂跳才對!





M83 – Graveyard Girl

23 05 2008

梅雨季節來臨,沉悶的心情最適合懷念過去,不管想起掛點的小貓小狗、剛和長跑10年女友分手、不小心格式化的硬碟,請仔細收好放進箱子,挖個洞把他們統統埋起來,再用力哭泣,悼念青春小鳥一去不復返。

歌詞快速翻譯
Death is her boyfriend
她男朋友已經躺在底下
She spits on summers and smiles to the night
她唾棄夏天,擁抱黑夜
She collects crowns made of black roses
她蒐集用黑玫瑰作成的皇冠
But her heart is made of bubble gum
她的心卻脆弱的像泡泡糖

Graveyard girl
墓園女孩

Dark rags and red stars
黑碎片與紅星星
She’s the dirty witch of her high school
她是學校裡的髒女巫
She worships Satan like a father
她超級崇拜撒旦
But dreams of a sister like Molly Ringwald
不過卻孝想著有個明星姊姊

“I’m gonna jump the walls and run
我要跳牆烙跑了
I wonder if they’ll miss me?
他們會想我嗎?
I won’t miss them.
我才不會想他們
The cemetery is my home
墳場是我的家
I want to be a part of it,
我想成為他們的一份子
Invisible even to the night.
在夜裡也不會被看見的哪種
Then I’ll read poetry to the stones
我會開始對石讀詩
Maybe one day I could be one of them…
Wise and silent.
也許哪天我會跟石頭上寫的字一樣冰雪聰明又安靜無語
Waiting for someone to love me.
Waiting for someone to kiss me.
看看誰會來愛我親我
I’m fifteen years old
我已經15了
And I feel it’s already too late to live.
我感覺我虛度了光陰
Don’t you?"
你不覺得嘛?

I can’t help my love
For Graveyard Girl.
我無法克制自己對一個已經過世的女孩的愛(thank you clhsiu !)
