OneRepublic – Stop And Stare

Dreaming Out Loud 2007

OneRepublic,美国科罗拉多州五人“独立”乐队。从 2006 开始活跃于网络,MySpace 上如今已是两千多万的听众。在首张专辑发行前,他们的单曲“Apologize”就已经显得响应非常良好,在各大电台和各单曲榜都大受青睐。该单曲的混音版还收录于 Timbaland 2007 的专辑《Presents: Shock Value》,可谓别具一格。

不过我却是从“Stop And Stare”认识这支乐队的,估计是先入为主,Apologize 听着一下就腻了(虽然里面的 SOLO 还是很美妙),但这首 Stop And Stare 却是百听不厌:美国版的 Keane。啧啧,原来英伦的那种细腻斯文的气质也可以出现在美国乐队身上。钢琴的娴熟运用、主唱的漂亮假音,甚至是歌词编曲方面等,貌似都不比 Keane 逊色多少。在节奏感上,他们也是丝毫不遗余力地融合了尽可能多的流行元素。至少,他们还多了几把吉他。

Dreaming Out Loud》发行于 2007 年底,里面的大部分词曲都出自乐队主唱灵魂人物 Ryan Tedder 的手笔。据说他还是位出色的制作人,曾参与多位一线流行歌手的专辑创作。制作人,我感觉就是知道市场需要什么他们就包装什么的人。不简单,流行摇滚乐队可以“独立”如此“高贵”如斯,想不红真的很有难度。

除了上面提到的 Apologize、Stop And Stare,专辑的其他歌曲总体上也是那个制作精良。哦,差点忘记说,封套,封套,比里面的歌曲还英伦!

OneRepublic – Stop And Stare [MV]

This town is colder now, I think it’s sick of us
It’s time to make our move, I’m shaking off the rust
I’ve got my heart set on anywhere but here
I’m staring down myself, counting up the years
Steady hands, just take the wheel…
And every glance is killing me
Time to make one last appeal… for the life I lead

Stop and stare
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I’ve become what I can’t be, oh
Stop and stare
You start to wonder why you’re here not there
And you’d give anything to get what’s fair
But fair ain’t what you really need
Oh, can you see what I see

Oh, you don’t need
What you need, what you need…

They’re trying to come back, all my senses push
Untie the weight bags, I never thought I could…
Steady feet, don’t fail me now
Gonna run till you can’t walk
Something pulls my focus out
And I’m standing down…

Stop and stare
I think I’m moving but I go nowhere
Yeah I know that everyone gets scared
But I’ve become what I can’t be
Oh, do you see what I see…
