在搖滾樂的分支裡面,有一個曲風叫做前衛搖滾(Progressive Rock),就我個人的認知裡面,最早起源至60末70初的前衛搖滾,除了技術編曲的高超之外,歌詞內容對於社會或個體精神的揭露性,也是非常大的特色。

老牌一點的前衛搖滾像是The Who、Yes都有漂亮的樂器獨奏,還有複雜的編曲。例如Yes的〈Fragile〉。而在近代的樂團裡面,我最喜歡的前衛搖滾團之一就是來自英國的Porcupine Tree。在他們的眾多專輯中,我又尤其喜歡這首「Way out of here」,我喜歡裡面營造的氣氛,喜歡那晦澀抑鬱的歌詞,也喜歡Steve Wilson在副歌唱出的「Way out of here, Fade out」,很深入的刻畫出了人面對群眾或自我所感到的疏離感。

在我喜愛的歌曲排行裡面,我想前衛搖滾、前衛金屬是佔大部分的。不論是Pain of salvation、Tool、Dream theater、Porcupine Tree,都有很多精湛的歌詞和恰當的氣氛營造。以下就附上Porcupine Tree這首歌的歌詞,希望大家在聽旋律之餘,可以邊看著歌詞,享受思想和節奏一起共鳴的快感。

 

Lyric:

Out at the train tracks
I dream of escape
But a song comes onto my iPod
And I realize it's getting late

I can't take the staring
And the sympathy
And I don't like the questions,
"How do you feel? How's it going in school? Do you wanna talk about it..."

Way out, way out of here
Fade out, fade out, vanish

I'll try to forget you
And I know that I will
In a thousand years
Or maybe a week

I'll Burn all your pictures
Cut out your face
And the shutters are down
And the curtains are closed
And I've covered my tracks
Disposed of the car

And I'll try to forget
Even your name
And the way that you look
When you're sleeping, dreaming of this

Way out, way out of here
Fade out, fade out, vanish

Way out, way out of here
Fade out, fade out, vanish
