[音樂] 星期一聽聽歌:世界裡的悲劇男主角 Tobias Jesso Jr.

一個組 band 拿下了世界乜乜乜樂團大獎的男孩,卻沒運走上一條平坦道路。紅不起來就再見,都是樂壇定律。然後遇上某個熱愛音樂的有錢女拿著家裡的錢請他從加拿大到紐約來製作音樂,少玩幾回覺得沒趣了,有錢女又回去讀書。他一個人,打算從事幕後制作,重新做起。某天他騎著單車遇上車禍,血流披面的時候司機絕塵而去;他躺在地上的時候更看到有人把他的單車踩走。低處未算低,同日他就收到電話說媽媽患上癌症;這趟紐約之行一點都不容易。當下他就決定放棄一切回到加拿大生活。他沒有放棄喜歡的音樂,把歌錄好就放上網。皇天不負有心人,現在他的音樂終於有發揚光大的機會。請記著,他的名字是:Tobias Jesso Jr.。

悲涼的音色讓我感到經歷裡的淒美,我喜歡一針見紅的歌名,以及那種重複又重複的歌詞和簡單的 acoustic 音樂。我第一首聽的是這首《True Love》;雖然Tobias Jesso Jr. 的樣子不是 my cup of tea,不過他的音色、曲子和髮型我都喜歡。

True Love – Tobias Jesso Jr.
He’s uptight
He don’t own nothin’ new
Well he ain’t cheap
He just can’t afford to
But she don’t mind
He’s her everything
“anything for you”
Everyday
Just trying to get by
No time to cry
No he can’t afford to
And she waits
Through everything
“Anything for you”

That’s what you call true love, true love, true love, true love
That’s what you call true love, true love, true love, true love
Workin’ late
Cuz she never finished school
She ain’t a fool
She just didn’t like it
Why he don’t mind
She’s his everything
“Anything for you”
Everytime
She tries to fight
Well she knows he’s right
She’d just been lied to
And he waits
Through everything
“Anything for you”

That’s what you call true love, true love, true love, true love
That’s what you call true love, true love, true love, true love
She wants to know
Do you do you do you want me
He wants to know
Do you do you do you want me
She’d love to know
Do you do you do you love me
He’d love to know
Do you do you do you love me
She needs to know
Do you do you do you need me
He needs to know
Do you do you do you need me
Like I need you

That’s what you call true love, true love, true love, true love
That’s what you call true love, true love, true love, true love
