There is no frigate like a book To take us lands away, Nor any coursers like a page Of prancing poetry. This traverse may the poorest take Without oppress of toll; How frugal is the chariot That bears a human soul!
聽Live跟聽碟感覺真的不一樣, 聽碟我最喜歡的是Seven Naked Valleys, 但現場聽City Hall真是精彩, 他們現場彈出整首歌的效果真是令我大開"耳"界, 另外印象很深刻是London 那場的Running for Your Life, 音樂一起全場氣氛沸騰, 一齊跳一齊唱, 我也差點被夾扁, 話說回頭, 此歌著實見到graham 的song writing愈來愈厲害, 由頭至尾, 由曲到詞都是讓大家一齊唱和跳吧, 而歌詞也真是過癮和攪笑. 而Cambridge那場, 最高興莫過於聽到You and I 了, 因為之前幾場的set list 是沒有的, 所以當他說You and I 時, 大家立即起哄.
而很明顯You and I是取代了All Over Me, 本來對後者被剔走了有點失望, 最初見set list 有此歌是何等開心, 不過之後想深一層, 也覺得很正常, 以這個set list來說, 又真不知應該將All Over Me放在哪裡. 其實這次新舊歌真的夾得很好, 由第一首high到尾二, 最後聰明地以Tripping Over作結, 這也是我喜歡死了的一首歌, 也是極想聽到live亦無想過可以聽到的一首!
是次Cambridge 及 London gig 絕對是我看過最精彩的音樂會, 花錢飛往英國看不止是值得甚至是超值!
Completely fall in love with Graham Coxon..........'s music lately.
His previous album "the Spinning Top" is so beautiful. I can hardly find another word to describe it. The music, the guitar, the lyrics, the flow... just beautiful and complete. It is enjoyable to listen to it from the begining to the end.
Some critise his voice. It is true that he has an "unique" voice which is far from perfect and sometimes he even (or almost) sings off key. But strangely that seems to make his songs even more attractive.
"Feel Alright" What this song impresses me is the extreme of the music and the lyrics. It sounds happy but indeed it's about feeling depressed. funny.
Oh Sunday morning, not a scrap in sight I'll go without, I do it out of spite All by myself, yeah
Food's lost its flavour, I refuse to bite Do myself no favours, I stay in every night Ashtrays in rows, but you know...
I feel alright It's just another Sunday morning, then it's Sunday night I feel alright It's just the ghost of you behind me, sitting right up tight
I'll read the paper, but it's yesterdays The world's gone mad and I'm going the same way All by myself, yeah
When the sun is shining, but it don't give no hope I'm into whining, and I'm all out of soap But it's good to feel dirty, yeah
When you feel alright Just another Sunday morning, everything's alright I feel alright It's just the ghost of you behind me sitting right up tight Sitting right up tight
So many miles, between me and you So many days, I don't know what to do Be by myself, then I know...
I'll be alright On another Sunday morning, another Sunday night I'll be alright With the ghost of you behind me sitting right up tight Sitting right up tight Sitting right up tight
"Brave the Storm" Beautiful lyrics
There's a world where we can disappear, into our own little stratosphere You see the stars up in heaven baby? They belong to me You & me are gonna learn to fly, the little pathways across the sky There's nothing here that can hold you baby, come along with me The rain falls down, such a familiar sound I'm on the ground, wet Like the first time we met
Maybe now it's time to say goodbye, put your skirt on hitch it high There's a wind gonna take us, baby, close your eyes to see There's a world where we can start anew, set alight by sun & moon The spirits cry in the rivers, baby, come along with me The rain falls down, such a familiar sound I'm on the ground, wet Like the first time we met
Brave the storm (ok)
There's a sorrow in your eyes of green, a darker song I have never seen I see the earth in your body baby, come along with me The rain falls down, such a familiar sound I'm on the ground, wet Like the first time we met
