Vincent by Don McLean - 經典原音系列

Vincent - Don McLean


Vincent 是唐麥克林(Don McLean) 寫給梵谷(Vincent)並向他致敬的歌曲,大家耳熟能詳的第一句歌詞"Starry Starry Night",便是意有所指梵谷的著名油畫作品-Starry Night,這幅畫目前還收藏於紐約的現代藝術博物館中,美國的民謠歌手Don McLean 於西元1971年,在拜讀了關於這位藝術家一生的傳記之後,便心生崇拜創作了Vincent 的歌詞,他除了描繪出自己在這幅畫中所感受到的震撼,更說出了無限的同情,他多麼希望能夠有機會親自告訴梵谷,這個世界根本不配擁有像梵谷這樣美好的一個人。優雅詩意的文字搭配著Don McLean質樸的吉他伴唱嗓音,讓這首歌在接下來的幾年受到廣大樂迷的喜愛,也曾在英國創下冠軍排行的寶座。

VINCENT by Don McLean

Starry
starry night
paint your palette blue and grey

look out on a summer's day
with eyes that know the
darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills
sketch the trees and the daffodils

catch the breeze and the winter chills

in colors on the snowy linen land.
And now I understand what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity
how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen
they did not know how

perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry
starry night
flaming flo'rs that brightly blaze

swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in
Vincent's eyes of China blue.
Colors changing hue
morning fields of amber grain

weathered faces lined in pain
are soothed beneath the artist's
loving hand.
And now I understand what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity
how you tried to set them free.
perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you
but still your love was true

and when no hope was left in sight on that starry
starry night.
You took your life
as lovers often do;
But I could have told you
Vincent
this world was never
meant for one
as beautiful as you.

Starry
starry night
portraits hung in empty halls

frameless heads on nameless walls
with eyes
that watch the world and can't forget.
Like the stranger that you've met

the ragged men in ragged clothes

the silver thorn of bloddy rose
lie crushed and broken
on the virgin snow.
And now I think I know what you tried to say to me

how you suffered for your sanity

how you tried to set them free.
They would not listen
they're not
list'ning still
perhaps they never will.
