Crowded House "Don't Dream It's Over" (1987)

Guess what I'm feeling now....

There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're travelling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
Don't ever let them win

The Communards "Don't Leave Me This Way" (1986)

アメリカにイギリスのポップロックが進出していた1985年以降、その一環のようにあった曲で、イントロの持って行き方などはプロモーションビデオに合う感じだなぁと当時感じていました。

たたみかけるような感じがいいんですが、少しが押しが弱いというか、淡々と流れて行く感じがしてしまうのが少々残念です。1977年のThelma Houstonのヒットのカバーというか modify。

Don't leave me this way
I can't survive, I can't stay alive
Without your love, no baby

Don't leave me this way
I can't exist, i will surely miss your tender kiss
So don't leave me this way

Oh baby, my heart is full of love and desire for you
So come on down and do what you've got to do
Your started this fire down in my soul
Now can't you see it's burning out of control
So come on down and satisfy the need in me
'Cos only your good loving can set me free

Don't leave me this way
I don't understand how I'm at your command
So baby please, so don't you leave me this way

Oh, baby, my heart is full of love and desire for you
So come on down and do what you've got to do
You started this fire down in my soul
Now can't you see it's burning out of control
So come on down and satisfy the need in me
'Cos only your good loving can set me free
Set me free, set me free, set me free, set me free, set me free
Come, satisfy me, come satisfy me
Don't you leave me this way

Don't leave me this way
I can't exist, I will surely miss your tender kiss
So don't leave me this way

Oh, baby, my heart is full of love and desire for you
So come on down and do what you've got to do
You started this fire down in my soul
Now can't you see it's burning out of control
So come on down and satisfy the need in me
'Cos only your good loving can set me free
Set me free, set me free, set me free, set me free, set me free

Don't you know by now, don't you know by now

I'm losing control

George Michael "Praying For Time"(1990)

選挙終了につき歌詞へのコメントはなしで。

まあ、問題がいろいろあった人ですが、この曲は掛け値なし。曲も彼が書いています。

These are the days of the open hand
They will not be the last
Look around now
These are the days of the beggars
And the choosers

This is the year of the hungry man
Whose place is in the past
Hand in hand with ignorance
And legitimate excuses

The rich declare themselves poor
And most of us are not sure
If we have too much
But we'll take our chances
Because God stopped keeping score
I guess somewhere along the way
He must have let us all out to play
Turned his back and all gods children
Crept out the back door

And it's hard to love,
There's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above
Say it's much too late
Well maybe we should all be
Praying for time

These are the days of the empty hand
Oh you hold on to what you can
And charity is a coat you wear
Twice a year

This is the year of the guilty man
Your television takes a stand
And you find that what was over there
Is over here

So you scream from behind your door
Say whats mine is mine and not yours
I may have too much
But I'll take my chances
Because God stopped keeping score
And you cling to the things
They sold you
Did you cover your eyes when
They told you
That he can't come back
Because he has no children
To come back for

And it's hard to love,
There's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above
Say it's much too late
Well maybe we should all be
Praying for time

ーーーー
(意訳)
気前の良い時代
止めどもなくあふれる
周りを見てみれば
物乞いと選り好みする者ばかり

飢えた人間の当たり年
彼らのいた場所は過去のもの
今や無知と法律に守られた弁解の中
お手々を繋いでいる

金持ちが貧乏だと言い張り
自分たちの大半は
「持ちすぎていても」
豊かどうかも判らない
だけどチャンスはある
神が人の採点をするのを止めたから
人がどこに行こうとも
神は皆を遊ばせるだろう
だって神は背を向け
神の子達は全て
裏口から這い出てしまったから

愛するに難しく
憎しみにあふれ
望みにすがろうとも
話すべき望みもない
汚れされた空が
「手遅れだと」と告げる
多分僕らは全て
「時の到来」を待つべきなんだろうと

何もない時代
自分が望むものを持っていても
チャリティーなんて
年に2回身につけるコート

罪深い者の時代
テレビが証人
遠く離れて起こったことを
その向こうに今あるかのように気付かせる

あなたが玄関の裏で叫ぶ
自分のものは自分のもので、他の人ものではないと
私は持ちすぎたのだろうけど
まだチャンスはある
神が人の採点を止めてしまったから
売るものにはすがりつき
その話には耳を傾けもしない
神は帰って来やしない
だって戻すべき神の子は
もういやしないのだから

愛するに難しく
憎しみにあふれ
望みにすがろうとも
話すべき望みもない
汚れされた空が
「手遅れだと」と告げる
多分僕らは全て
「時の到来」を待つべきなんだろうと

Sandi Thom "If I Was A Punk Rocker" (2006)

偶然CSで見たこの曲。久々にパワーのある曲です。
日本では2007/4/11アルバムリリースということでプロモーションがかかっていますが、イギリスでは2006/6にシングルで1位になっています。

アメリカではチャートに入ってきていません。今アメリカはまだまだ保守的ですので、この種のフォークはチャートインしにくいでしょうね。あとサッカーが歌詞に入っているのも少々弱いかも知れませんね。

懐かしむ気分と、時代とともに忘れたもの。「環境に優しい」なんてメディアは言ってますけど、余程今の方が贅沢に、無駄をしていること、そして失った精神を思わせる歌詞。そうそう。ペットボトルの回収なんて言いますけど、実はそれを始めたことによってその後ワンウェイペットボトルの消費は5倍に増えている。それが本当に環境に優しいのかと言えば…

久々にアルバム買おうかという気になりました。

YouTube

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In '77 and '69 revolution was in the air
I was born too late and to a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When the head of state didn't play guitar,
Not everybody drove a car,
When music really mattered and when radio was king,
When accountants didn't have control
And the media couldn't buy your soul
And computers were still scary and we didn't know everything

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In '77 and '69 revolution was in the air
I was born too late and to a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When popstars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when God Saved the Queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
When my mom and dad were in their teens
and anarchy was still a dream
and the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In '77 and '69 revolution was in the air
I was born too late and to a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When record shops were on top
and vinyl was all that they stocked
and the super info highway was still drifting out in space
kids were wearing hand me downs,
and playing games meant kick arounds
and footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face

Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In '77 and '69 revolution was in the air
I was born too late and to a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

I was born too late to a world that doesn't care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

<意訳>

私がもし革命の気運にあった1969年や1977年の
髪に花を飾ったパンクロッカーだったら。
今の無関心な世界に産まれるには遅すぎた。
もし私が髪に花を飾ったその時代のパンクロッカーだったら。

国のリーダーがギターを弾くこともなく、
みながみな、車の運転ををしていない、
音楽が本当に重要で、ラジオが王様の時代。
会計士の支配力もなく、
メディアがあなたの魂を買うことができず、
コンピュータがまだ恐ろしいもので、私たちが全てを知らなかった時代。

ポップスターが神であり、無知が至福であり、
まだ女王は君臨し、
彼女の顔が青ざめていた頃。
父や母が十代で、無政府主義はまだ夢で、
連絡を取る唯一の方法が手紙だった頃。

レコードショップが全盛で、アナログレコードだけを店に置き、
高度情報高速道路は宙に彷徨っていた頃。
子供はまだお下がりを身につけ、
遊びと言えば(ボールを)蹴っ飛ばすこと、
そしてサッカー選手はまだ長髪で、顔が土まみれだった頃。

私がもし革命の気運にあった1969年や1977年の
髪に花を飾ったパンクロッカーだったら。
今の無関心な世界に産まれるには遅すぎた。
もし私がその時代の髪に花を飾ったパンクロッカーだったら。

The Fixx "One Thing Leads To Another" (1983)

アルバム"Reach The Beach"からのファーストシングルだったように記憶していますが、この曲がほぼ四半世紀前だと思うと、時代の流れを感じますね。

難しい歌詞の曲を演るグループでしたので、好きでした :P

この歌詞が最近の日本の状況のようであるけれども、実は universal problemなのかも知れないな、ということを示してもいます。


The deception with tact, just what are you trying to say?
You've got a blank face, which irritates
Communicate, pull out your party piece
You see dimensions in two
State your case with black or white
But when one little cross leads to shots, grit your teeth
You run for cover so discreet, why don't they:

Do what they say, say what you mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong, I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another.

The impression that you sell
Passes in and out like a scent
But the long face that you see comes from living close
To your fears
If this is up then I'm up but you're running out of sight
You've seen your name on the walls
And when one little bump leads to shock miss a beat
You run for cover and there's heat, why don't they:

Do what they say, say what they mean
One thing leads to another
You told me something wrong, I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another
One thing leads to another

Then it's easy to believe
Somebody's been lying to me
But when the wrong word goes in the right ear
I know you've been lying to me
It's getting rough, off the cuff I've got to say enough's enough

Bigger the harder he falls
But when the wrong antidote is like a bulge on the throat
You runs for cover in the heat why don't they

Do what they say, say what they mean
One thing leads to another
You tell me something wrong, I know I listen too long
But then one thing leads to another
One thing leads to another

Peter Gabriel / Kate Bush "Don't Give Up" (1987)

今年の最初のエントリーは…

2006年という年が「厚顔無恥」(無知でもいいが…)な人間ほど得をする、「分をわきまえる」ということを知らない恥知らずな国になったことを印象づけた年ではなかったか、ということから、反面的なこの曲を取り上げました。

ピーター・ガブリエルの「So」というアルバムに入っており、シングルにもなったのですが、あまりヒットはしませんでした。ただ、この曲順というのが面白くて、2005/8にwolfy.us(ログ消失中)でも取り上げた"Big Time"の次の曲です。

要するに…いけいけどんどんになって、どんどん金儲けも進んでいって止まらない、というような曲の後に、この曲「まさか失敗するとは思わなかった」「だけどもあなたは一人ではない」「自分を誇りに思って」「必ずいる場所があるのだから」と続くわけです。

この国は格差拡大と「自衛軍」化していく中で、「徴兵制をせず、外国人の国籍変更も許さない」というのであれば、格差を広げて逆転できない層を作り上げた後に、最後には命で格差を埋めるしかなくなる(貧しければ軍に入るしかない)かも知れない。そんな国にならないように、という願いを込めて。


in this proud land we grew up strong
we were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

no fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
but no one wants you when you lose

don't give up
'cos you have friends
don't give up
you're not beaten yet
don't give up
I know you can make it good

though I saw it all around
never thought that I could be affected
thought that we'd be the last to go
it is so strange the way things turn

drove the night toward my home
the place that I was born, on the lakeside
as daylight broke, I saw the earth
the trees had burned down to the ground

don't give up
you still have us
don't give up
we don't need much of anything
don't give up
'cause somewhere there's a place
where we belong

rest your head
you worry too much
it's going to be alright
when times get rough
you can fall back on us
don't give up
please don't give up

'got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
going to stand on that bridge
keep my eyes down below
whatever may come
and whatever may go
that river's flowing
that river's flowing

moved on to another town
tried hard to settle down
for every job, so many men
so many men no-one needs

don't give up
'cause you have friends
don't give up
you're not the only one
don't give up
no reason to be ashamed
don't give up
you still have us
don't give up now
we're proud of who you are
don't give up
you know it's never been easy
don't give up
'cause I believe there's a place
there's a place where we belong

Red Hot Chili Peppers "The Power Of Equality" (1991)

2年目のbjリーグのプレシーズンが始まろうとしています。大阪でも月曜にサムスンとの試合で幕開け。そういえば昨年はピリオドの間に Red Hot Chili Peppersのデビューアルバムが延々とかかっているのがおもしろくありました。"Blass Monkey"なんて大麻の歌、ずっとかけてていいのか?:)って感じで。

彼らの曲で一番印象に残っているのは、この91年の"Blood Sugar Sex Magik"の1曲目に入っていたこの曲です。シングルカットはしなかったんじゃないかな? 異常にパワフルな曲で、内容ももとより、今のこの国に欠けてるものを感じます。

"My name is peace, this is my hour."なんてグッと来るフレーズですよ。更にこれが続く訳ですから。
「未だあるべき姿ではない平等の力、自分の中空の木を満たすような、平等の力」

…しかし、このバンド捕まえてこう言っちゃいけないよ。
「鷹の爪団」って。:.


I've got a soul that cannot sleep
At night when something just ain't right
Blood red but without sight
Exploding egos in the night
Mix like sticks Of dynamite
Red black or white, this is my fight
Come on courage, let's be heard
Turn feelings into words
American equality has always been sour
An attitude I would like to devour
My name is peace, this is my hour
Can I get just a little bit of power

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be (ought to be)
It fills me up like a hollow tree (hollow tree)
The power of equality

Right or wrong, my song is strong
You don't like it, get along
Say what I want, do what I can
Death to the message of the Klu Klux Klan
I don't buy supremacy
media chief, you menace me
The people you say 'cause all the crime
Wake up motherfucker and smell the slime
Blackest anger, whitest fear
Can you hear me, am I clear
My name is peace, this is my hour
Can I get just a little bit of power

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be (ought to be)
It fills me up like a hollow tree (hollow tree)
The power of equality

I've got tapes, I've got CD's
I've got my public enemy
My lilly white ass is tickled pink
When I listen to the music that makes me think
Not another motherfuckin' politician
Doin' nothin' but something for his own ambition
Never touch, the sound we make
Soul sacred love vows that we take
To create straight what is true
Yo he's with me and what I do
My name is peace, this is my hour
Can I get just a little bit of power

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be (ought to be)
It fills me up like a hollow tree (hollow tree)
The power of equality

Madder than a motherfucker, lick my finger
Can't forget 'cause the memory lingers
Count 'em off quick little piccadilly sickness
Take me to the hick, eat my thickness
I've got a welt from the bible belt
Dealing with the hand that I've been dealt
Sitting in the grip of a killing fist
Giving up blood just to exist
Rub me wrong and I get pissed
No I cannot get to this
People in pain I do not dig it
Change of brain for Mr Bigot

Little brother do you hear me
Have a heart oh come get near me
Misery is not my friend
But I'll break before I bend
What I see is insanity
Whatever happened to humanity
Whatever happened to humanity
Whatever happened to humanity

Public Image Limited "Rise" (1986)

先日、朝電車に乗っていると、頭を駆け抜けた曲。その日一日これ。こういう頭は困ったものだなぁ…と思うのだけども。

でもまあ、こう言った反抗心とか反発心から来るエネルギーってのが最近の特に邦楽にはかけていて、ポジティブ・シンキングなんて言うけど、実際にはこの国の「体制に巻かれろ」的で、小さいことで喜べなんて曲が上位に並ぶと、これら何らかの情報統制か?と皮肉ってしまう。

まあ、「反発心」なんてのもその時代のマーケティングに依るところなんだけれども、その中でせめぎ合うモノもあろうから、同じとは言えないように思うのだけれど。

見かけのキレイさだけが重視されるのはゴメンだね、小生は。


I could be wrong I could be right
I could be wrong I could be right
I could be wrong I could be right
I could be black I could be white

Your time has come your second skin
The cost so high the gain so low

I could be black I could be white

Joe Jackson "Breaking Us In Two" (1983)

ちょいと気力が無い一日。ずっとゴロゴロしておりました。

先日現社で最後の東京出社の際に、ホテルから会社に向かう時、乃木坂から六本木まで歩いているときに、ずっと頭の中で浮かんでいた曲。まあ現社が「恋人か」と言われればノーだけど。

そのときの景色が、正面に「ダイナシティ」の看板、右奥に六本木ヒルズってのが、まがいものっぽさが出ていて印象的で。

愛すべき人はたくさんいたけどね。システムになるとそう事態は単純じゃないわけで。別れるきっかけはいろいろとあるもので、何が発端になるかは分かったものじゃないと。

当該の曲は1982年のLP "Night And Day"からの2曲目のシングル。1曲目"Steppin' Out"もヒットしました。Night Side/ Day Sideと名前をLPの各面に付けていたのが懐かしくもあります。84年の"Body And Soul"からカットされた "You Can't Get What You Want" "Happy Ending" も情景が浮かぶいい曲です。

現在も活動中で、>JoeJackson.com<が公式に運営されています。

Don't you feel like trying something new
Don't you feel like breaking out
Or breaking us in two
You don't do the things that I do
You want to do things I can't do
Always something breaking us in two

You and I could never live alone
But don't you feel like breaking out
Just one day on your own
Why does what I'm saying hurt you
I didn't say that we were through
Always something breaking us in two

They say two hearts should beat as one for us
We'll fight it out to see it through
I say that won't be too much fun for us
Though it's oh so nice to get advice
It's oh so hard to do

Could we be much closer if we tried
We could stay at home and stare
Into each other's eyes
Maybe we could last an hour
Maybe then we'd see right through
Always something breaking us in two
