之前大衛選了A Fine Frenzy的新歌Blow Away,那就藉機向大家介紹一下她吧!A Fine Frenzy其實是本名叫Alison Sudol的女生化用的藝名,因為本身對文學的熱愛,所以她特別取莎士比亞《仲夏夜之夢》書中的一個字詞作為展開音樂之路的開始,千萬別誤會這是一個團體囉!來自西雅圖的Alison從小就接觸古典(Classical)、民謠(Folk)、汽車城音樂(Motown,底特律黑人音樂)、搖擺舞音樂(Swing)、搖滾(Rock)等各式各樣的音樂,長大後的思維當然跳脫不了這些曲風,在創作時輕鬆又自然的把從文學及這些音樂習得的靈感注入個人的作品。跟Sara Barielles一樣無師自通一手好琴藝的Alison寄出demo帶後即獲得唱片公司的青睞,加上幾場現場演唱的磨練及幾首大受好評的單曲後,立刻發行首張專輯One Cell In A Sea。這張大量以鋼琴、吉他及Alison獨特嗓音的專輯也馬上得到星巴克娛樂副總的讚賞,形容它為「音樂界裡的稀有品種,藉由她的音樂,你將立即前往一個溫暖且縈繞的詩意天地。」

Almost LoverAlison18歲時有感而發所創造出的作品,同時也是她的首支單曲,不僅在歐洲大受廣評,更被MTV真人實境節目The Hills,以及知名電視劇Big Shots,不約而同地選作配樂。 

 

Gen姐附註:這首歌也是我的最愛之一哦,unplugged version也很讚,還有她的另外一首Come On Come Out也非常好聽,也鄭重為大家推薦。

歌詞:

Your fingertips across my skin 
The palm trees swaying in the wind 
Images 
 
You sang me Spanish lullabies 
The sweetest sadness in your eyes 
Clever trick 
 
I never want to see you unhappy 
I thought you'd want the same for me 
 
Goodbye my almost lover 
Goodbye my hopeless dream 
I'm trying not to think about you 
Can't you just let me be? 
So long my luckless romance 
My back is turned on you 
Should've known you'd bring me heartache 
Almost lovers always do 
 
We walked along a crowded street 
You took my hand and danced with me 
Images 
 
And when you left you kissed my lips 
You told me you would never let forget these images

No… 
 
I never want to see you unhappy 
I thought you'd want the same for me 
 
Goodbye my almost lover 
Goodbye my hopeless dream 
I'm trying not to think about you 
Can't you just let me be? 
So long my luckless romance 
My back is turned on you 
Should've known you'd bring me heartache 
Almost lovers always do 
 
I cannot go to the ocean 
I cannot drive the streets at night 
I cannot wake up in the morning 
Without you on my mind 
So you're gone and I'm haunted 
And I bet you are just fine 
Did I make it that easy 
To walk right in and out of my life? 
 
Goodbye my almost lover 
Goodbye my hopeless dream 
I'm trying not to think about you 
Can't you just let me be? 
So long my luckless romance 
My back is turned on you 
Should've known you'd bring me heartache 
Almost lovers always do
