世事無常

大選結束,一切回歸生活。是否真的就是一如往常。
我的情緒告訴似乎未必如此,我知道本應如此。
旦我還是會難過,儘管事情就是如此,你本來就知道的不是嗎,但不要放棄努力,寶貝。
所有成就都不會白費,儘管事情不如人意。

The black keys 年輕的兩人藍調基本式組合,走回歸70年代的老tone風格。AMG給他們的風格標籤是Punk Blues,說是有點勉強但也說得過去,雖然新專輯的曲子中聽不太到,不過依舊延續其風格並加入了更多迷幻音色。

久違的新專輯 Attack & Release,依舊由Nonesuch發行。

製作人找的是Danger Mouse
還有
Ike Turner (傳奇且惡名昭彰的曼菲斯藍調老黑,可惜死於2007年底。合作宣告無寂而中)他們在這張專輯玩起來的感覺想像是有點Elvis Costello 或是 Tom Waits的味道。不知是否是危險老鼠找了 Marc Ribot來弄的關係。
整張主題感覺多了點迷濛,更帶有一種心碎。
對,就是整個感覺被辜負了。
對,你被表了。就是這樣
It sings like that!

Things ain't like they used to be

Lyrics:


Went around the way for you
Did all the things you asked me to
I thought it was the perfect day
To see just open love to say

It doesn't mean a thing to me
It doesn't mean a thing to me
And it's about time you see
Things ain't like they used to be

I headed out to Lester Hill
But that just made me weaker still
She's got the kind of love I need
The kind that's never good on me

It doesn't mean a thing to me
It doesn't mean a thing to me
And it's about time you see
That things ain't like they used to be

Walked into the battle blind
It happens almost all the time
The yard is kinda overgrown
And all those happy times are gone

But it doesn't mean a thing to me
It doesn't mean a thing to me
And it's about time you see
That things ain't like they used to be

It doesn't mean a thing to me
It doesn't mean a thing to me
And it's about time you see
Things ain't like they used to be

延伸聆聽
老雷鬼團體UB40
有一首同名單曲
味道完全不同
真是Things Ain't Like They Used To Be啊!
