Echo & The Bunnymen – The Killing Moon

by on Aug.16, 2010, under Cavia666

“The Killing Moon” 来自英国 Post-Punk 乐队 Echo & the Bunnymen 1984 的专辑 Ocean Rain. 灵感来自主唱 Ian McCulloch 某天醒过来想着 “fate up against your will” 这句话, 然后就把它写在纸上最后完成这个这首歌. 歌词非常好.

Under blue moon I saw you
So soon you’ll take me
Up in your arms
Too late to beg you or cancel it
Though I know it must be the killing time
Unwillingly mine

Up against your will
Through the thick and thin
He will wait until
You give yourself to him

这首歌进过英国排行榜 Top 10, 英国人对非主流的接受度果然比美国人高一些, 虽然美国也有 The B52’s 这种奇怪的例子. 另外 Killing Moon 的 mv 拍的有点像香港武侠片(一开始的时候), 我一直以为林青霞会从哪冒出来.

我很惭愧很早以前就收了他们专辑但认真听是在看了 Donnie Darko 之后, 这是我看过的 2000年之后最牛逼的片子. 电影里临近结束的 Party 放了这首歌(这是 director’s cut 版本, 第一版是因为当时没有拿到 INXS 的 “Never Tear Us Apart“版权结果用Killing Moon 放在一开头代替). 下面是 Donnie Darko, 导演是 Richard Kelly, 当然这是 director’s cut 版(133分钟), 感谢 youku.
