半夜別摳我

PlantLife騷靈Outkast
他們玩的相當標準樣板的嘻哈與放客編曲,正因如此聽起來越有重回80甚至七零的感覺但又不會老到掉牙齒。PlantLife是由Tha Animal Pharm的核心人物Panda One跟MC Jack Splash的在九零年代末組的。他們似乎很玩票、隨性,並沒有預期要製作任何專輯或是發表任何作品。只是厭倦了主流嘻哈唱片工業。他們回歸基本面,就是想做點好東西,他們覺得酷的好音樂。另外找來跟Tricky有合作的歌手RashidaDena Deadly.他們2003年第一張作品 Remembering Back to Now 因為不甚滿意所已沒有作正式的發行。於是第二張作品Jack Splach的復歸(The Return of Jack Splash)就變成了他們的首張問世的作品了(當初有Remember Back to Now 的人一定很值錢)。 從下面這首單曲可以看到此專輯主打情慾與愛意的表達,內容就像是在描寫夜店走跳的愛恨情仇。 這張專輯受到許多大咖的注意與關愛有Mos Def, the Chemical Brothers, the Roots的鼓手 ?uestlove及電音界的Vikter Duplaix. 還有BBC的老伯Gilles Peterson 把2004 的 Album of the Year at BBC Radio One's Worldwide Music Awards. 頒給了這張專輯,喜歡黑靈的,聽了就知道該買了,台灣竟然完全找不到,真不知道這國家希望在那呀。
連總統都是個蛋,唉。

Lyrics:

You knew my sign before you knew my name girl or was that just game
Because Girl, I don't mind, and I believe in signs
You gave me your stage name girl
Was that your game ?
Cause girl, I don't mind. Got your number and you got mine
You called me the next day, I don't know what to say, but

Why'd U Call Me girl, ring my phone at 3am
I know you've been with him, but no more no more

Here I am, my heart in hand
I know your game so well girl, cause I've been there too
And if you don't mind, I'll take my time
Your body, your mind...I'm there too
You let me in,we're skin to skin
You said I'm just a friend, well why you fuckin' me?


Why'd you call me girl, ring my phone at 3am
I know you've been with him,but no more, no more
