《單曲》Radiohead - Burn The Witch


This is a low-flying panic attack.

英國搖滾天團 Radiohead 於今年 5/3 推出睽違五年最新作品「Burn The Witch」,預計為第九張專輯首支主打,目前專輯名稱及發行日期未定。此首歌最早於 2000 年錄製第四張專輯《Kid A》時開始創作,據報歌詞在 2005 年就已經完成,但之後一直都沒有製作發表。諷刺獵巫風氣所造成的迫害,可引伸至社會與政治等層面。MV 找來曾執導他們歌曲「There There」音樂錄影帶的 Chris Hopewell 再次合作,從構想設計到做成動畫只花了短短兩個禮拜,用黏土以停格動畫方式呈現,向 1967 年 BBC 的兒童節目《Trumpton》致敬,內容啟發自 1973 年英國恐怖片《The Wicker Man》,以異教徒的詭異故事為主題,所要傳達的意象值得深思。

Lyrics 歌詞:(by 好青年 整理)

[Verse 1: ]
Stay in the shadows
Cheer at the gallows
This is a round up

[Pre-Chorus 1: ]
This is a low-flying panic attack
Sing a song on the jukebox that goes

[Chorus: ]
Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live

[Verse 2: ]
Red crosses on wooden doors
And if you float you burn
Loose talk around tables
Abandon all reason
Avoid all eye contact
Do not react
Shoot the messengers

[Pre-Chorus 2: ]
This is a low-flying panic attack
Sing the song of sixpence that goes

[Chorus: ]
Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live
We know where you live
