Switchfoot – The Beautiful Letdown 2006/07/03

Filed under: Music — Saiga @ 01:50

来自美国加州 San Diego 的福音四人乐团。以曼蒂摩儿 Mandy Moore 领衔主演的电影《A Walk To Remember》扬眉吐气。原声带中所演唱的五首歌曲皆获得 San Diego 的 ASCAP 原声带音乐金牌奖!其中包括和 Mandy Moore 合唱的一首情歌,另人无法不注意到他们。2003 年签入主流音乐厂牌 Columbia / Sony 旗下,推出最新专辑“The Beautiful Letdown”夺下 BillBoard 福音专辑榜冠军。现在又因为搭配《蜘蛛人2》电影的宣传曲 Meant to Live 再度吸引更多乐迷的耳朵。

回溯 Switchfoot 的音乐历程,就得从90年代中期的圣地亚哥海滩说起。Jon Foreman 与  Chad Butler参加冲浪比赛时结识,因彼此对音乐的热爱,决定组成摇滚乐团。以冲浪术语 Switchfoot 为团名(指冲浪时改变脚在冲浪板上的位置,取得新的方向来驾驭浪势),开始在自家的车库开始苦练,然后到处巡回演唱。在经过近 20 场的演唱磨练后,1997 年签入独立厂牌 Re:Think,发行他们的第一张专辑 Legend of Chin。在每年平均150场的巡回演唱,Switchfoot 在独立厂牌发行3张唱片总共销售了40万张唱片。加入哥伦比亚唱片的第一张专辑【The Beautiful Letdown】,则成为他们成军以来销售速度最快的专辑。

MEAN TO LIVE LYRICS:

Fumbling his confidence
And wond’ring why the world has passed him by
Hoping that he’s bent for more than arguments,
And failed attempts to fly, fly

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside
Somewhere we live inside
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside

Dreaming about Providence
And whether mice or men have second tries
Maybe we’ve been livin with our eyes half open
Maybe we’re bent and broken, broken

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside
Somewhere we live inside
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside

We want more than this world’s got to offer
We want more than this world’s got to offer
We want more than the wars of our fathers
And everything inside screams for second life

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live
We were meant to live
