Missing

Everything But the Girl

我其实很喜欢这只英国独立乐队,第一次听他们的歌曲是那首翻唱的《I don’t want to talk abou it》。这个世界乐坛著名的夫妻档里妻子 Tracey Thorn 的嗓音很特别。乐队名字来自一个广告词”here we provide everything but the girl”(我们这儿除了女孩啥都提供)。这首 Missing 当年横扫世界各国歌曲排行榜,可惜现在没几个人知道了,继续我的《乐海拾贝》吧。

      歌词:

      1982年组建于英格兰东部海滨城市——赫尔市的夫妻二人档,将电子、爵士、流行成功结合的典范。老婆Tracey Thorn(主音)和老公Ben Watt(词曲创作,合成)本是赫尔大学的同学,乐队得名于一家家具店的广告:
      “我们满足您的一切卧房需要,除了女孩儿”。乐队初期走英伦清新吉他路线,后来逐渐在音乐中融入爵士、电子元素,近期又在流行中糅合前卫实验风格。除了Ben顽强抵抗白血病,获得新生的事迹,乐队90年代初在专辑《The Language of Life》中能有幸邀得爵士传奇Stan Getz共谱心曲,也一直为人津津乐道。

      背景介绍:

      I step off the train

      I'm walking down your street again

      And past your door, but you don't live there anymore

      It's years since you've been there

      Now you've disappeared somewhere, like outer space

      You've found some better place

      And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

      And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

      Could you be dead?

      You always were two steps ahead, of everyone

      We'd walk behind while you would run

      I look up at your house

      And I can almost hear you shout down to me

      Where I always used to be

      And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

      And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

      Back on the train, I ask why did I come again?

      Can I confess, I've been hanging round your old address?

      And the years have proved

      To offer, nothing since you've moved

      You're long gone, but I can't move on

      And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

      And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

      And I miss you

      I step off the train

      I'm walking down your street again

      And past your door, I guess you don't live there anymore

      It's years since you've been there

      Now you've disappeared somewhere, like outer space

      You've found some better place

      And I miss you,

      And I miss you,

      You found some better place

      And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

      And I miss you, yeah, like the deserts miss the rain

      And I miss you, and I miss you

      Like the deserts miss the rain

      And I miss you, yeah, like the deserts miss the rain

      The deserts miss the rain

      Like the deserts miss the rain

      Like the deserts miss the rain,

      Like the deserts miss the rain

      And I miss you, yeah, like the deserts miss the rain
