Joni Mitchell – Both Sides Now

Joni Mitchell – Both Sides Now

 

假如看過電影"愛是你,愛是我"(Love Actually)的話,

對這張專輯封面應該不陌生,

這張就是艾瑪湯普遜發現丈夫(石內卜教授)外遇的證據後放的音樂,

配合著劇情,聽著Joni經過歲月淬礪後的歌聲,

相當不一樣阿,

Joni Mitchell從小罹患小兒麻痺,

小兒麻痺對Joni的心理有沒有影響不得而知,

但卻永久的在身體上留下殘疾,

幼小的Joni在醫院裡接收治療,

人生才剛會思考就面臨自己可能會失去自由行動力的憂慮,

於是她開始作畫、她寫歌、她吟詩,

之後每張專輯的封面也幾乎都是Joni的自畫像或是畫作,

幾乎是要讓自己超乎常人加倍的活著,

但人不是完美,

年輕時的Joni為了生活、也許也因為貧窮,

她甚至狠下心把八月大的小女兒送人領養,

末了,  Joni的音樂成功了,

但有份愛我相信在她的人生裡是確定喪失,

最後Joni在五十餘歲時終與愛女重逢,

可失去的不可能回來,

也許是這樣的人生,

也許是長期抽菸的摧殘,

Joni重唱Both sides now時,

三十年的人生經歷才終於讓這首歌熟成至最原醇的地步,

下面是Both sides now, 2000年的live、然後歌詞、然後1970live

比較一下、感受一下,畢竟我選的年份並不一定是你要的年份。

 

Joni Mitchell – Both Sides Now 2000 lives

    

 

 

Both sides now

 

Rows and floes of angel hair

And ice cream castles in the air

And feather canyons everywhere

I’ve looked at clouds that way

 

But now they only block the sun

They rain and snow on everyone

So many things I would have done

But clouds got in my way

 

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now

From up and down, and still somehow

Its cloud illusions I recall

I really don’t know clouds at all

 

Moons and junes and ferris wheels

The dizzy dancing way you feel

As every fairy tale comes real

I’ve looked at love that way

 

But now its just another show

You leave em laughing when you go

And if you care, don’t let them know

Don’t give yourself away

 

I’ve looked at love from both sides now

From give and take, and still somehow

Its loves illusions I recall

I really don’t know love at all

 

Tears and fears and feeling proud

To say I love you right out loud

Dreams and schemes and circus crowds

I’ve looked at life that way

 

But now old friends are acting strange

They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed

Well somethings lost, but somethings gained

In living every day

 

I’ve looked at life from both sides now

From (up and down, give and take) win and lose and still somehow

 

Its lifes illusions I recall

 

I really don’t know life at all
