選舉日後過著空白的日子，將心情和身體調整好之後，今天讓翻譯機動一下。再聽一聽這首歌，還是覺得好好聽。我想到我以前大學的時候並沒有很喜歡David Bowie，但現在聽他的歌，覺得他的聲音非常舒服。也許是現在的我開始喜歡蒼老的聲音了。繼續閱讀 “David Bowie, “Lazarus” (Translation)"
I saw a little bit of HBO’s documentary “David Bowie: The Last Five Years" last week. After listening to some musicians talking about how they worked with David on his last album “Blackstar," I’ve become very interested in it. Later I borrowed a copy from our local library and listened to it with amazement and delight. It’s been quite a while since the last time I listened to an entire album so attentively. God knows how rare this is in the modern time.
The single “Lazarus" is my favourite, and it catches my imagination right from the beginning. Perhaps that’s because he was really in his last days when he was filming the video. The documentary mentioned David’s idea about the music video and how the director tried to execute the idea, and then, the result is here. Watching the video two years from his death now really makes me wonder how he felt, what he was actually thinking when he was lying in that bed, playing that character “Button Eye." Now we will never know. He has gone back to the Blackstar. But surely his music will remain on Earth, being the proof of his stay.
