Jem – 24

Finally Woken

Jem,原名 Jemma Griffiths,来自英国威尔斯。13 岁就开始创作并演唱,29 岁才发行了自己的处女专辑《Finally Woken》。这张混合了流行摇滚、古典民谣、电子音乐、世界音乐等元素的专辑很快风靡了全世界,在英国获得第六名的专辑已在排行榜上占据超过30周,并创下全英点播亚军曲“They”与冠军曲“Just A Ride”两首热门单曲。

被誉为“Dido II”的 Jem,声线和曲风跟 Dido 确实都非常相似,慵懒中透露着淡雅,空旷却又异常动人。但 Jem 始终不是 Dido,所以我们听到的就不仅仅是慵懒或空旷了。最初朋友 Asher 传给我的是 They [MV],电台听了好多遍了,未知歌名未识歌手,调调太萎靡了,我不是很喜欢。不过搜索之下,发下了这首“24”,哈——喜欢!清爽干脆的前奏很引人入胜,紧接而来的摇滚节奏跌荡起伏,让你高潮一浪接一浪啊,哈哈!

这首 24,据说是《致命紫罗兰》的主题曲。其实,也许她的出名比我想像的来的还要强烈些,它还被莫文蔚翻唱为“24hrs”,收录于《如果没有你》。莫的唱功毋庸置疑滴,但跟原唱比起来总感觉稍逊,呵呵,可能是还没听习惯。另外那首萎靡的“They”也比菜一林翻唱为 Motorola 广告歌。(Afly)

Jem -24

Been given 24 hours
to tie up loose ends to make amends
His eyes said it all I started to fall
and the silence deafened Head spinning round
no time to sit down just wanted to
run and run and run Be careful they say
don’t wish life away, now I’ve one day

And I can’t believe How I’ve been wasting my time

In 24 hours they’ll be laying flowers
on my life, it’s over tonight I’m not messing no I
need your blessing and your promise to live free
please do it for me

Is there a heaven a hell and will I come back
who can tell Now I can see
what matters to me it’s as clear as crystal
The places I’ve been the people I’ve seen
plans that I made start to fade
The sun’s setting gold thought I would grow old, it wasn’t to be

And I can’t believe How I’ve been wasting my time

In 18 hours they’ll be laying flowers
on my life, it’s over tonight I’m not messing no I
need your blessing and your promise to live free
please do it for me

In 13 hours they’ll be laying flowers
on my life, it’s over tonight I’m not messing no I
need your blessing and your promise to live free
Please do it for me

I’m not alone, I sense it, I sense it All that I said, I meant it, I meant it

And I can’t believe How much I’ve wasted my time

In just 8 hours they’ll be laying flowers
on my life, it’s over tonight I’m not messing no I
need your blessing and your promise to live free
please do it for me

In just 1 hour they’ll by laying flowers
on my life, it’s over tonight I’m not messing no I
need your blessing and your promise to live free
please do it for me

Jem – Finally Woken

专辑中除了“偷情”广告曲“Come On Closer”外,开场曲“They”取样享誉国际的人声合唱团体“The Swingle Singers”诠释的“巴哈F小调前奏曲”,搭上孩童合音,结合古典及电子,创造出简洁的优雅美学;专辑同名曲“Finally Woken”取样童谣“Ride A Cock Horse”传递出明亮的调性;到了“24”又转为激昂的摇滚行径;“Stay Now”一开始就挑起高涨的戏剧张力。整张专辑散发细腻与创意兼具的无穷魅力,无怪乎英美媒体对这张专辑好评不断,现在,jem的灵秀才情也将透过这张专辑温柔深植你的心。(转)
