James Morrison  

 

文:Lejal

說到James Morrison,我們不得不提到他的經典歌曲You Give Me Something。You Give Me Something是James Morrison剛出道首張專輯Undiscovered的第一支單曲,也是他早年最成功的一支單曲更是他所有的歌裡我最喜歡的一首。

 

You Give Me Something在英國單曲榜攻上第5名,並在榜上待了17週,最後獲得全英音樂獎年度最佳單曲的提名。尤其在紐西蘭反應更是熱烈,這首歌一舉在紐西蘭奪冠。

You Give Me Something也是相當適合戀人聆聽的一首歌,James Morrison表示:這是一首「嚴峻的情歌」。歌裡的男主角其實沒女方那麼愛他,但卻願意給這段關係一個機會。有那麼點愛意,帶著些許感激,點出了感情維妙的關係。

 

有些電影也把這首歌選為背景音樂像我很喜歡的一部愛情電影Made of Honor(新郎不是我)就用了這首歌。當男主角Tom在餐館吃飯河邊散步都不自覺得想起好朋友-女主角Hannah時才發覺她早在不知不覺中走進自己的生命

歌曲的MV則陸續推出三種版本,最初的版本是James Morrison坐在椅子上用吉他自彈自唱,穿插Morrison一個人在街道上行走的場景。第二個發行的版本則是拉到熱鬧的紐約街頭,James Morrison直接在馬路上唱起歌來,最後以夜晚炫目的聲光效果作收。最新的版本同樣是James Morrison坐在椅子上自彈自唱但週遭的場景換為樂團舞者跟跳繩的女學生。

 

 

最後我們來聽James Morrison以沙啞又充滿感情的嗓音詮釋這首歌吧!

James Morrison - You Give Me Something 歌詞

You want to stay with me in the morning
You only hold me when I sleep
I was meant to tread the water
Now I've gotten in too deep
For every piece of me that wants you
Another piece backs away

'Cause you give me something
That makes me scared, alright
This could be nothing
But I'm willing to give it a try
Please give me something
'Cause someday I might know my heart

You already waited up for hours
Just to spend a little time alone with me
And I can say I've never bought you flowers
I can't work out what they mean
I never thought that I'd love someone
That was someone else's dream

'Cause you give me something
That makes me scared, alright
This could be nothing
But I'm willing to give it a try
Please give me something
'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

But it might me a second too late
And the words that I could never say
Gonna come out anyway

'Cause you give me something
That makes me scared, alright
This could be nothing
But I'm willing to give it a try
Please give me something

'Cause you give me something
That makes me scared, alright
This could be nothing
But I'm willing to give it a try
Please give me something
'Cause someday I might know my heart
Know my heart, know my heart, know my heart
