Joni Mitchell - Woman of Heart and Mind (2003)

joni_clouds69

歌手joni mitchell 的音色高而飘,“如听仙乐耳暂明”,真情流露的词句唱出心底的温柔。岁月悠悠,车里的磁带听了将近二十年,伴着我们多少人生路。

" I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
Traveling, traveling, traveling
Looking for something, what can it be
Oh I hate you some, I hate you some
I love you some
Oh I love you when I forget about me
I want to be strong I want to laugh along
I want to belong to the living
Alive, alive, I want to get up and jive
I want to wreck my stockings in some jukebox dive
Do you want, do you want, do you want
To dance with me baby
Do you want to take a chance
On maybe finding some sweet romance with me baby
Well, come on

All I really really want our love to do
Is to bring out the best in me and in you too
All I really really want our love to do
Is to bring out the best in me and in you
I want to talk to you, I want to shampoo you
I want to renew you again and again
Applause, applause, life is our cause
When I think of your kisses
My mind see-saws
Do you see, do you see, do you see
How you hurt me baby
So I hurt you too
Then we both get so blue

I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
Looking for the key to set me free
Oh the jealousy, the greed is the unraveling
It's the unraveling
And it undoes all the joy that could be
I want to have fun, I want to shine like the sun
I want to be the one that you want to see
I want to knit you a sweater
Want to write you a love letter
I want to make you feel better
I want to make you feel free
Hm, hm, hm, hm,
Want to make you feel free
I want to make you feel free"


她低头轻抚吉他,飘逸的金色长发遮住面颊,仿佛为自己营造一个避风港。她的声音时而如行云流水,时而热情如火,在冰火交融的气氛中,她可以从小旅舍桌上一杯咖啡,一枝玫瑰唱到世界和平,从阿姆斯特丹唱到加州,每个简单的音在她的唇间都诉说一段情感,一个故事。她的音乐天赋用什么语言来形容都显得苍白。

看到Joni,想到影片Forrest Gump 里阿甘的女友Jenny,一个背上吉他闯天下的女子。Joni出生于加拿大小镇,她兼备北欧的修长身材和苏格兰爱尔兰能歌善舞的天性。王菲在访谈中提到joni mitchell 是她最喜爱的歌手,她自己唱的旋转木马让我想到joni唱的the circle game

the circle game

Yesterday a child came out to wonder
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star

Then the child moved ten times round the seasons
Skated over ten clear frozen streams
Words like when you're older must appease him
And promises of someday make his dreams

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game *

Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
Cartwheels turn to car wheels thru the town
And they tell him take your time it won't be long now
Till you drag your feet to slow the circles down

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
There'll be new dreams maybe better dreams and plenty
Before the last revolving year is through

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game


joni的《little green》写给自己未能养育的女儿,一个她深藏心底的秘密和伤痛。也许是这个原因,她的音乐有着琢磨不透的飘忽感,神秘感,正所谓“不敢入诗的来入梦”。想不到我会随着先生迷上一位在我出生前就成名的歌手。。。1966,67年的美国也经历着一场文化革命。迷茫的一代寻求着自我也寻求着爱。

Little Green

Born with the moon in Cancer
Choose her a name she will answer to
Call her green and the winters cannot fade her
Call her green for the children who've made her
Little green, be a gypsy dancer

He went to California
Hearing that everything's warmer there
So you write him a letter and say, "Her eyes are blue."
He sends you a poem and she's lost to you
Little green, he's a non-conformer

Chorus:
Just a little green
Like the color when the spring is born
There'll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow
Just a little green
Like the nights when the Northern lights perform
There'll be icicles and birthday clothes
And sometimes there'll be sorrow

Child with a child pretending
Weary of lies you are sending home
So you sign all the papers in the family name
You're sad and you're sorry, but you're not ashamed
Little green, have a happy ending

CHORUS:

Just a little green
Like the color when the spring is born
There'll be crocuses to bring to school tomorrow
Just a little green
Like the nights when the Northern lights perform
There'll be icicles and birthday clothes
And sometimes there'll be sorrow

她的一生,注定漂泊;她的心灵,向往自由。她的最爱,是绘画,是歌唱,是作曲,是如诗的歌词。几十年后,她鼓足勇气寻找送走的女儿,她的声音已经从清澈变沧桑,她柔情地为团圆的女儿和孙儿女唱一曲,“我从两边看过了云彩。。。”

both sides now

Bows and flows 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
It's 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 it's 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
It's love's 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

Oh but now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost but something's gained
In living every day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From WIN and LOSE and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

I've looked at life from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
