I’ve seen it all

早前看到關於新世界七奇觀和第八大奇觀 (The new seven wonders/ The Eighth Wonders) 的新聞, 就想起了Bjork 和 Thom Yorke 的 I’ve seen it all 這一首歌。

這首歌是由Bjork 本人主演的電影 Dancer in the dark 的主題曲…

歌中講到的這些那些的地方, 我也沒到過, 沒有親眼看過; 可是片中的她卻說, 她全部都看過, 她是個很快就會瞎掉的女人。

I’ve seen it all, I have seen the trees,
I’ve seen the willow leaves dancing in the breeze

I’ve seen a man killed by his best friend,
And lives that were over before they were spent.
I’ve seen what I was and I know what I’ll be
I’ve seen it all – there is no more to see!

You haven’t seen elephants, kings or Peru!
I’m happy to say I had better to do
What about China? Have you seen the Great Wall?
All walls are great, if the roof doesn’t fall!
And the man you will marry?
The home you will share?
To be honest, I really don’t care…

You’ve never been to Niagara Falls?
I have seen water, it’s water, that’s all…
The Eiffel Tower, the Empire State?
My pulse was as high on my very first date!
Your grandson’s hand as he plays with your hair?
To be honest, I really don’t care…

I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen the dark
I’ve seen the brightness in one little spark.
I’ve seen what I chose and I’ve seen what I need,
And that is enough, to want more would be greed.
I’ve seen what I was and I know what I’ll be
I’ve seen it all – there is no more to see!

You’ve seen it all and all you have seen
You can always review on your own little screen
The light and the dark
, the big and the small
Just keep in mind – you need no more at all
You’ve seen what you were and know what you’ll be
You’ve seen it all – there is no more to see!

我真的很喜歡 Bjork, 那一種特別的唱腔, 在我中學時代就開始喜歡了, 說起來這樣的我好像有點兒奇怪… 沒有特別的迷本地的偶像, 什麼什麼流行的歌, 別人覺得是經典的, 耳熟能詳的, 我都未必會知道。可是就跑去聽這些…

來自Radio Head 的Thom Yorke 的聲音也很好聽! 算是少數令我著迷的男聲:-P

也在別人聽椎名林檎之前, 因為在hmv 的貨架上發現了這個奇怪名字的歌手而買來聽… 那時應該是很早期的事了… 還有很高音開朗的Judy and Mary, 奇怪唱腔的Suede等等, 這些有機會才再講多點。
