Daniel Powter – Bad Day

Daniel Powter

早上一位朋友来串门,然后叫我去他的 QQ-Zone 空间看看那个换页不会停掉的播放器,其实 QQ-Zone 除了大量的框架和脚本外,其实用性是极其低端的,我想微软的 Spaces 品位大概可以是它的十倍,哈,技术含量就不敢说了,但其定位实在不敢恭维——无论是功能或是界面;当然很多朋友还是在用,各花入各眼,这些牢骚也只是一些个人的意见罢了——然后,我推荐他去看看 Spaces,然后我偷偷地去搜索刚在他音乐盒那里听到的 Styrofoam,歌手叫 Daniel Powter

乍听之下,很有 James Blunt 的味道,一样的感性,一样的诗意,一样的动人……如果说 James Blunt 是位从容不迫的吉他诗人,则他就是一位轻快活泼风格多样的钢琴诗人……我承认我听 Styrofoam 时已是一听钟情,听到 Bad Day 时更是喜欢到非常……喜欢这位加拿大吟唱诗人 Daniel Powter,这位集所有特殊风格、才华、以及天真和嘲讽于一身的北国青年人。

这张同名专辑《Daniel Powter》在八月份发行,现在已有大量相关文章,可见大红程度。有称这张大碟《Dniel Powter》为 Coldplay、Elton John 和 James Blunt 的综合体,哈,是不是真是这样,倒要各位自己听过再下结论了。新专辑内的十首心情小品,均是他一手创作的。整张专辑的音乐是轻快活泼的,歌曲很吸引人,节奏具感染力、坚不可摧的和旋像钩子入你的脑袋里并且不放手。值得一提的是,Daniel Powter 驾驭自如的真假音切换,使每首歌曲跌宕起伏而不沦于单调,尤其是在描述谎言爱情的 Lie To Me中,更是得以淋漓尽致的发挥。

Daniel Powter 就是这样,你会觉得他像一位长久“在路上”的诗人,或者是与你在地铁站内擦肩而过的行者,你大可不必怜惜他在因何而忧伤不定,他是快乐的,就像一位感性和喜欢随遇而安的诗人在记录着所看到的一切,并怀着一种坚定而感恩的心,活着。

首支单曲“Bad Day”连续十周占据瑞士单曲榜冠军,如旋风般地在法国电台创下点播的奇迹,将近两个月蝉联榜首,更在法国当地造成一般DP(Daniel Powter)热潮。MV拍得非常有意思,描述一对相隔咫尺、却一直素不相识的男女,在各自生活里或喜或悲,并最终因为个性深处的契合而走近彼此的故事,特别是里面男女主角在同一广告板上涂鸦的情节显得非常真切动人……而它又不仅仅是一出“向左走,向右走”的爱情小品,歌曲背地里折射出来的现代人的生活观,则是可以使之意味悠长的原因所在。

如果爱情是谁的劫难,那我们永可不必相交。但若爱情是我们的转机,我们又可轻易让它溜走?

Daniel Powter – Bad Day [MV]

Where is the moment when we need it the most
you kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
you tell me your blue sky’s faded to grey
you tell me your passions is gonna away
And i don’t need no carry on

Stand in the line just ahead of the law
You’re faking a smile with the coffee you go
You tell me your life’s been way off line
You’re falling to pieces everytime
And I don’t need no carrying on

Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day

Well you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don’t need no carrying on

Sometimes the system goes on the blink and the whole thing it turns out Wrong
You might not make it back and you know that you could be well oh that Strong
Well I’m not wrong

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You’ve seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Daniel Powter – Free Loop [MV]

I’m a little used to calling outside your name
I wont see you tonight so I can keep from going insane
But I don’t know enough, I get some kinda lazy day
Hey yeah

I’ve been fabulous through to fight my town a name
I’ll be stooped tomorrow if I don’t leave as them both the same
But I dont know enough, I get some kinda lazy day
Hey yeah

Cause it’s hard for me to lose
In my life I’ve found only time will tell
And I will figure out that we can baby
We can do a one night stand, yeah

And it’s hard for me to lose in my life
I’ve found outside your skin right near the fire
That we can baby
We can change and feel alright

I’m a little used to wandering outside the rain
You can leave me tomorrow if it suits you just the same
But I don’t know enough, I need someone who leaves the day
Hey yeah

Cause it’s hard for me to lose
In my life I’ve found only time will tell
And I will figure out that we can baby
We can do a one night stand, yeah

And it’s hard for me to lose in my life
I’ve found outside your skin right near the fire
That we can baby
We can change and feel alright

    我在大学的时候在一张电脑光盘上第一次听到这首歌,虽然不知道歌手是谁,但因为好听就收藏了.
    不知道是不是我反应迟钝,毕业已经一年多过去了,我才想起来百度一下看看歌手的资料,于是看到了你对他的介绍,很感谢你.
    我知道歌手是谁才有机会去欣赏他其他的歌曲.

    bad day, nice song!

    besides, is there any special meaning about “jimmy” ?
    why they appear in both DP and James Blunt’s song?
    just a coincidence?

  18. Nutcraker

    Amazing!太兴奋了,在这里看到那么多朋友喜欢Daniel Powter的歌,我是Daniel Powter 的乐迷,苦于身边朋友对他了解甚少。只能默默地支持他,听他的歌,我最喜欢的是stytofoam,也像楼主一样一听钟情,每次我不开心的时候都会听着它,那些钢琴声让我有一种从挫折中,忧伤中重新踏上征途的感觉。当然,整张碟我都很喜欢。还有,他的一首单曲Love you lately 也很不错!容我说多几句,我压抑太久了!哈哈!我会一直支持Daniel 的!

  19. shaomin9013

    恩....《BAD DAY》MV很不错,我现在上班就是那种感觉,那个女主角已经到Hollywood发展啦。Free Loop 是我最喜欢的一首,每次听的时候都有点忧伤。。。

  20. leon
