I Got a Name

每天在高速公路上奔馳,一邊是必須糊口的理由,一邊是勉力溫飽的方法。漫漫長路終而復始,得想點辦法抑制夢回故里的衝動。

在廣播中聽新聞或評論,已經使我厭煩;因為許多從人金口言之鑿鑿的話,隔天甚至幾小時後就會被別人或自己推翻,不想混淆備份越來越亂的大腦。

嘗試聽些英文小說,居然 iPod 裡裝了些鬼故事,從音效感受得出努力的嚇人意圖,但英聽被風聲鬧得變爛了(?),逼不出冷汗來,即使烏雲遮月。

還是播爵士樂銷魂吧,近來最愛的是這兩張 CD:Carol Kidd 「卡蘿姬最精選」,Chie Ayado 綾戶智繪 "To You"。特別推薦 "I got a name",適合在夜色迷濛的公路兩端思前想後隨風唱和。

I got a name

words by Norman Gimbel
music by Charles Fox

Like the pine trees lining the winding road
I've got a name, I've got a name
Like the singing bird and the croaking toad
I've got a name, I've got a name

And I carry it with me like my daddy did
But I'm living the dream that he kept hid
Movin' me down the highway
Rollin' me down the highway
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by

Like the north wind whistlin' down the sky
I've got a song, I've got a song
Like the whippoorwill and the baby's cry
I've got a song, I've got a song

And I carry it with me and I sing it loud
If it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud
Movin' me down the highway
Rollin' me down the highway
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by

And I'm gonna go there free

Like the fool I am and I'll always be
I've got a dream, I've got a dream
They can change their minds but they can't change me
I've got a dream, I've got a dream

Oh, I know I could share it if you want me to
If you're going my way, I'll go with you
Movin' me down the highway
Rollin' me down the highway
Movin' ahead so life won't pass me by

古典音樂台有句廣告詞:「世事紛擾,只有聽音樂最好」。

我也喜歡開車邊聽音樂,聽太多新聞,只是讓自己的心情更不平靜。

開車小心!

專輯封面上她甜美笑容和奔放歌聲真的有反差效果

這首歌是不是更適合奔馳在高速公路時聽呢?

這話太深
您必須負起導讀責任

謝謝您!

我會小心

自從某次等綠燈時眼睛居然閉起來睡著開始..

正好在聽美國一位鄉村歌手的專輯, Living Like a Millionaire 是歌名.
此歌手原本家財萬貫, 卻因吸毒而致一度身敗名劣.
後段是我對他心境的描述...ain't got a dime actually when haunted with hollow ecstasy. 狂喜後的空虛表示他其實當時心靈一貧如洗!

(這就如同我喜歡搜集包包, 但其實也不見得會因此心靈充實. 但經過深思, 我還是會維持這個嗜好, 因為想要活絡世界經濟!.....
會不會扯太遠了?!...................)

對了, 我還欠妳 K 歌一頓, 別忘了來認領!
