《聖誕單曲》The Killers (ft. Dawes) - Christmas In L.A.


美國搖滾樂團 The Killers 於 12/1 推出 2013 年聖誕公益單曲「Christmas in L.A.」,為全球愛滋病患募款。找來洛杉磯獨立民謠搖滾樂團 Dawes 共同譜寫合唱,音樂錄影帶則由美國演員 Owen Wilson 獨挑大梁,飾演一個勉強謀生的演員,在耶誕時期無法回家陪家人過節的孤單寂寞。MV 開頭有一段和著名演員兼歌手 Harry Dean Stanton 的對白,另外穿插動畫呼應歌詞,意境深遠。團長 Brandon Flowers 接受訪問時表示,影片精神其實是想表達一個男人懷念過去傳統聖誕節並思考生命的意義。特別一提,由於歌詞中有引用到聖誕經典歌曲「White Christmas」,所以在作者欄有出現 Irving Berlin 的名字。充滿傷感卻給人希望,就算對人生感到迷茫,也要永不放棄。有時候我們停下腳步,其實只為了走得更遠。別想太多,一切其實很簡單!




Lyrics 歌詞:(by 好青年 整理)

Woke up, the sun streaming in my room
Warm beach from palm December afternoon
You close your eyes
Another year blows by
Somewhere in the wind
Just another life

My parents sent a Christmas card and then it's true
We understand you're staying
And we're proud of you
There's a well-rehearsed disinterest in the atmosphere
I don't know if that's what this time gave me
Or if it led me here

And I played so many parts
I don't know which one's really me
Don't know if I can take

Another Christmas in L.A.
Another pitcher of Sangria
In an empty beach cafe
Another Christmas in L.A.
Hold me tighter Carmelita
I don't know how long I can stay

Left a girl behind in my old man's truck
Sometimes I wonder where she ended up
Maybe she got married, had a couple of kids
Who do you think you're fooling man?
Of course she did

I'm walking in that tennis bar
Try and talk with Harry Bean
I don't know if I can take

Another Christmas in L.A.
Another casting call on Thursday
For a job that doesn't pay
Another Christmas in L.A.
Another burnout in a tank top
It seems your basket is the case
A fat protagonist in flip flops
With an extensive resume
From Echo Park to Catalina

Dreaming of a white Christmas
The one I used to know
Tree tops glisten, children listen
To sleigh bells in the snow

Another Christmas in L.A...
