.: Leonard Cohen: A Thousand Kisses Deep (For Sandy)

頗順耳 是我偏愛的迷茫冷清調調
歌名也讓我有一探詞意的欲望
可憐我英文爛 看不太有!:p

出自孔爺爺2001年的專輯"Ten New Songs"
這張CD在島內不好找
台灣新力音樂似乎一直都沒代進來(?)
只有誠音等等地方有零星地進過一些私貨
不過 在2003年發行的精選"The Essential Leonard Cohen"裡也收了這首歌
這一套CD在台灣似乎就蠻好找的了

and...Ten New Songs有發LP喔!
伊時忠孝踢波的buyer史提芬方曾經進過一張
還沒上架就被我擋下了 哇哈哈~*_*y
(那真是慘烈的一夜啊!連同十數張ECM的LP等等等等一口氣耗掉我一萬多塊...~>"<~)


Words: Leonard Cohen & Sharon Robinson / Music: Leonard Cohen & Sharon Robinson

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat.
You win a while, and then it's done –
Your little winning streak.
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat,
You live your life as if it's real,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

I'm turning tricks, I'm getting fixed,
I'm back on Boogie Street.
You lose your grip, and then you slip
Into the Masterpiece.
And maybe I had miles to drive,
And promises to keep:
You ditch it all to stay alive,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

Confined to sex, we pressed against
The limits of the sea:
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me.
I made it to the forward deck.
I blessed our remnant fleet –
And then consented to be wrecked,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

I'm turning tricks, I'm getting fixed,
I'm back on Boogie Street.
I guess they won't exchange the gifts
That you were meant to keep.
And quiet is the thought of you,
The file on you complete,
Except what we forgot to do,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat...

為什麼我找不到啊~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

真是太可惡了,下次得找隻眼睛亮一點的馱獸跟我一起上街.

(用新電腦上網ing,還在適應中)

找不到啥?
馱獸又是啥?@_@a

The Essential Leonard Cohen

幫我拿選好的CD的苦命人.ㄎ

我記得我確實是看過的
而且當時還因為到底要不要買而掙扎了好一會兒

台灣新力音樂的網站上找不到發行資料
不過查諸大眾 確實是有發沒錯:
"The Essential Leonard Cohen":http://www.tcr.com.tw/title_display.asp?cd_no=tv2k86884

我今天刚在文庙掏到,老板介绍说这位仁兄的声音是男人中的男人,像寒风的声音。另外还买了《Wednesday Morning,3AM》而且老板自己是个发烧友,我买的盒子都是被千刀万剐过的!
冒昧问一句,LP是什么?Ten New Songs怎么样的?

關於啥是LP
您可參考這一篇:
http://www.oishi.com.tw/include/13-22.htm

我所聽過加諸於LC身上的形容詞大約都跟那老闆的見解差不多
"疲憊的低音大提琴"、"老嬉皮"...
對味的人 通常都會很愛

"Ten New Song"說實在的我並不熟
幾年來才聽過兩次吧
快沒印象了
所以也不敢胡亂給您介紹
不過網路上搜尋一下 應該可以找到一些介紹的:)
