《音樂》玫瑰色的你 —— 張懸

這首歌我喜歡詞勝過曲太多,曲比較像是給了節奏,讓歌詞比較好「唸」。但歌詞確實像詩,又不像許多華語歌詞,華麗但空虛,更別提很多根本連華麗都稱不上的詞了。先說我不是張懸的死忠粉,但是台灣有多少歌手,能夠像她一樣思考,又能像她一樣被重視?

I like the lyrics of this song a lot. The melody is not that good, but it gives a suitable tempo for Deserts Chang to "intonate" her beautifully written lyrics. The music video is also poetic, dark but not depressive. It's more like a hint of the coming hope, in the dim light of the pink-color dawn.


《玫瑰色的你》來自 MV 中寫的英文定義:Rose-colored glasses,玫瑰色的眼鏡,代表天真樂觀乃至幼稚的看法。這首歌的歌詞或許得搭配最近一篇張懸的專訪一起看,才能理解為什麼張懸希望年輕人(當然最好是所有人)都能保有童貞,天真樂觀甚至熱血的情緒。

先收歌詞,因為看到 youtube MV 影片下面很多人留言說華語歌不被世界認可,是因為歌詞太沒有深度。那麼難得有一首許多人認為有深度的歌,就把歌詞翻譯一下吧。為了押韻(龜毛mode)的關係,把一些語句重組了一下。

The Rosy-colored You Music and lyrics by Deserts Chang

這一刻你是一個最快樂的人
At this moment you're the happiest person
你看見你想看見的,你將它發生
You see what you want to see, and you let it happen
因你,我像戴上玫瑰色的眼鏡
Because of you, I am behind the glasses colored rosy
看見尋常不會有的奇異與歡愉
And I see the unusual happiness and fantasy
你美而不能思議
You have an amazing beauty

這一刻你是一個最天真的人
At this moment you're the naivest person
你手裡沒有魔笛,只有一支破舊的大旗
In your hand not Die Zauberflöte, but just a scruffy drapeaux
你像丑兒揮舞它;你不怕髒地玩遊戲
You shake it like a clown, playing with all the dirty spitted on you
你看起來累壞了但你沒有停
You look gutted but you never give up
我是那樣愛你
So much I love you
不肯改的你,玫瑰色的你
The rebellious you, the rosy-colored you

這一刻你是一個最憂愁的人
At this moment you are the most dolorous person
你有著多少溫柔,才能從不輕言傷心
How gentle should you be, to silently bear those rue
而你告別所有對幸福的定義
You even say goodbye to the definitions of happy
投身萬物中,神的愛恨與空虛
And plunge into the universe, feel the God's love and hate and empty
和你一起,只與你一起
Being with you, and only with you
玫瑰色的你
The rosy-colored you

你是我生命中最壯麗的記憶
The most splendid memory in my life is always you
我會記得這年代裡你做的事情
I will remember whatever in this era you do
你在曾經不僅是你自己
In the past you are not only the lonely you
你栽出千萬花的一生,四季中徑自盛放也凋零
Through the four seasons they bloom and wither, the flowers you grew
你走出千萬人群獨行,往柳暗花明山窮水盡去
Towards the light behind the doom, from the crowd you skiddoo
玫瑰色的你
The rosy-colored you
讓我日夜地唱吧,我深愛著你
Let my sing in day and night, for my deeply-loved you
玫瑰色的你
The rosy-colored you

《玫瑰色的你》的MV也非常棒,導演是羅景壬,是以拍攝電視廣告起家,可是這部 MV 給我的感覺是他比較像是拍電影的人。用了很多魔幻的元素,深色而模糊搖晃的畫面,似乎暗示著時代的動盪與不安。微電影一般的 MV,以三部曲的形式緩慢地將玫瑰色、你與兩者合併的動機表達出來。

在第一部(玫瑰色的)開始前,是年輕父親抱著小孩看著電視的畫面。但是我們不知道他們在看什麼,只能從音效猜出大概是在看卡通。父親的表情似笑非笑,好像覺得有趣可是理智驅離感情,讓他無法像自己的小孩一樣直接表達自己。然後正劇開始,許多屍體都是從腦袋一槍斃命,可血跡化成玫瑰花瓣,噴濺於地板、於磁磚、於玻璃。如果玫瑰花瓣是天真是熱情,那被迫從腦袋裡驅離的這些,是不是代表長大的代價是與之脫離?

第二部(你),以年輕父親當主角,他看著那些屍體,從屍體身邊收走槍(還是他本來是來處死他們的?)。槍似乎是所有陳腐觀念的化身,他人用子彈強硬地灌輸,後果是死亡,自由意志的死亡。後來年輕父親在大雨中的廊簷下,好像也能體悟那些屍體生前體會到的現實的困陟,然後他彷彿看見了世界的哀悼。

第三部(玫瑰色的你),在父親去接女兒後展開。父親開始思考,女兒給他一朵玫瑰,女兒不知道她的父親白天在做什麼,在她眼裡,父親就是這麼安心而正確的存在。她可以分享她天真的想法,可是她不知道她的 Daddy 以後會把槍對準她。然後他們開始看卡通。整部 MV 給我的感覺很像《L'accordeur》,灰暗卻又諧謔,以電影形式帶出迴圈。一個我們逃脫不了地迴圈。

2012/12/31 補記:這個連結的影片意涵解釋我覺得很棒:http://tw.knowledge.yahoo.com/question/question?qid=1012082104938
原評論來自 youtube id dim0528 和豆瓣的 伢荡漾 ,不過大抵如下解釋,此間我又再加了一點(猜測的)細節。

第一幕的戰爭應該是內戰,而且是臨海國家。可以看到拒馬圍住海岸,沒有人可以離開,而死亡的兩人似乎皆曾懷抱理想,因為兩人屍體旁都有玫瑰色的花瓣。如果說一方是希望獨立,另一方則希望國家統一和平,似乎也解釋的通。Google 了一下,這個場景所指應該是象牙海岸革命戰爭,又名科特迪瓦戰爭。

其後死亡的知識分子,我贊成伢蕩漾所說的學運,豆瓣上也有一些細節。接下來的西藏獨立運動(Free Tibet)、汽車旅館情侶自殺、核電廠和車禍、瑞典馬爾默市(Malmo)種族屠殺都合乎豆瓣上的解釋。唯獨中間廁所那幕,我的想法跟 dim0528 相同,從廁所兩旁的標語來看,應該是泰緬柬語系或是阿拉伯語系的。但是阿拉伯語系都是由右至左書寫,所以也不合所見。泰國和緬甸最近也有不少民主運動,最可能是這兩個國家。放大字來看,裡頭有不少以圓圈符號為基礎的字,跟緬文又比較相像,加上翁山蘇姬前一段時間多受炒作,影片裡應該是影射緬甸的人權運動。至於詳細,還得其他人補充了。

(在豆瓣上,也有一台灣人認為這個死去的男生應該是紀念《葉永鋕事件》)

至於玫瑰色的眼鏡在 MV 裡是不是貶意,應該是見仁見智。在片頭的卡通,或可解釋為媒體將世界幼稚化,和平化,讓我們看不到世界的真相。但是這麼一來又與父親的冷漠相矛盾。如果他根本看不到殘酷,那也無所謂冷漠不冷漠了。另一種可能是,父親讓女兒看卡通片,把世界的殘酷遮掩住,因此女兒可以保持天真,而父親依舊維持冷漠。世人的袖手旁觀是槍與子彈,將天真的想法驅逐出民運者的腦袋,讓他們變成另一個「父親」。而這個「父親」有他親情上關係的隱喻:他保護著女兒,保護的過程中,他或無意識地同時欺瞞,而他的女兒將來將不被這些被隱匿的現實觸動,於是夢想死亡以後再難以復生。

父親收走槍這點,我有點覺得那似乎代表著被殺的人/夢想死亡的人以「扼殺他人夢想」的身分重生。失去夢想的人變得平庸,甚至也開始冷漠。很多人都是這樣的吧?因為自己做不到,當別人努力時、掙扎時,我們因為自己曾經痛苦過而覺得這些掙扎都是沒有意義的,所以冷眼旁觀。我們都在變成殺死自己的人。

The director of this MV is Lo Ging-Zim. He is a commercial advertisement director, but this music video makes me feel that he is more like a movie director. The dark and shaking scenes seem to imply the turmoil and unstable of the era. In the form of trilogy, Mr. Lo slowly tells the stories about the rosy color, the you and the rosy-colored you.

Before the first session starts, the young father is watching TV with his daughter. His facial expression is a bit weird. From the sound effect I guess he is watching cartoon or animation. He seems to be amused, but something is telling him not to laugh or even simply feeling happy about this. His rational expels his emotions, as how the grownups are trained to do. In the first part (Rosy Color) of the MV, many corpse lay with blood coming out from their heads. The blood are made of rose petals, symbolizing the naivety and enthusiasm of these dead people. Their spirits are dead, because of they lose these.

In the second part (You), the young father becomes the main character. He walks through the scenes, looking at these bodies. He takes the guns away from these bodies (he also brings one with him). He seems to be the agent who should kill these people, but these people has killed themselves. The bullets symbolize the cliche idea, and people use the gun to inject these ideas into the others. If the bullet goes into one's head, their free will die. The young man once stands under the eaves, staying away from the heavy rain. It looks like that he can feel how the dead people feel, about the pain from the reality. Then he seems to be able to see how the world mourns over their death.

The third part begins with the young man's pickup of his daughter, from a kindergarten. After reaching home, the father sits in the sofa and starts to think about what he has been through in the day. His daughter then passes him a rose as a gift. His daughter would never know what her father does. All she might feel are his father's strong and calming existence. He is the hero to whom she can share her naive thoughts to. He is meanwhile also the one who might kill her free will in the future. Then, they start to watch the animation, and we are back to the beginning. Like a cycle we can never escape.
