最近我看到一個在Dolce & Gabbana後台拍攝的短片。很有意思。一群男模依序唱著 "Freedom, Freedom..." ,這是一首好歌,只是有點久了。

我首先想到這位歌手的曲子,是 Battlestations 和 Jitterbugs. 其中Jitterbugs,只要是有看過 Zoolander 這部電影的人,都聽過。Zoolander 的故事是講一群奇蠢無比的男模特兒的故事。而我今天要介紹的這首歌曲,跟模特兒也很有關係。

為什麼Dolce & Gabbana的男模們要錄下這一段大家輪流唱 "Freedom, Freedom"的歌曲呢?

因為這首歌曲在1990年拍攝的MV, 就是由一群當時最有名的超級模特兒共同拍攝的。

好吧,謎題揭曉,這首歌曲就是1990George Michael的作品 "Freedom '90"

當中有一句特別有名的歌詞,是

I don't belong to you , and you don't belong to me

這似乎是在消解個人主義,而以一些符號為個人替代嗎??我覺得歌詞滿有意思的,可惜我也說不出個所以然。

但最讓我喜歡的,不消說,就是獨特的旋律和編曲。

十九年後的今天我第一次聽,覺得這首歌很有意思 (19年前我才剛上小學吧,連誰是George Michael是誰都沒聽過啊),相信那些十九年前就聽過這首歌的人,這時候再聽一次,還是覺得很新鮮吧。

 

 

Freedom '90 by George Michael

I won't let you down
I will not give you up
Gotta have some faith in the sound
It's the one good thing that I've got
I won't let you down
So please don't give me up
Because I would really, really love to stick around

Heaven knows I was just a young boy
Didn't know what I wanted to be
I was every little hungry schoolgirl's pride and joy
And I guess it was enough for me
To win the race? A prettier face!
Brand new clothes and a big fat place
On your rock and roll TV
But today the way I play the game is not the same
No way
Think I'm gonna get me some happy

I think there's something you should know
I think it's time I told you so
There's something deep inside of me
There's someone else I've got to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Take back your singing in the rain
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you take
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you take

Heaven knows we sure had some fun boy
What a kick just a buddy and me
We had every big shot good-time band on the run boy
We were living in a fantasy
We won the race
Got out of the place
I went back home got a brand new face
For the boys on MTV
But today the way I play the game has got to change
Oh yeah
Now I'm gonna get myself happy

I think there's something you should know
I think it's time I stopped the show
There's something deep inside of me
There's someone I forgot to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Don't think that I'll be back again
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man

All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you take
Freedom
You've gotta give for what you take

Well it looks like the road to heaven
But it feels like the road to hell
When I knew which side my bread was buttered
I took the knife as well
Posing for another picture
Everybody's got to sell
But when you shake your ass
They notice fast
And some mistakes were built to last

That's what you get

I say that's what you get

That's what you get for changing your mind

And after all this time
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes
Do not make the man

I'll hold on to my freedom
May not be what you want from me
Just the way it's got to be
Lose the face now
I've got to live
