Birdy 

 

Birdy – Skinny Love (2011)

 

全名為Jasmine Van den BogaerdeBirdy

1996生於英國Lymington,受到鋼琴師母親的薰陶,

自幼開始學琴,7歲即有了自己的作品。

12歲時參加選秀比賽,

以一首創作曲〈So Be Free〉奪得分組冠軍,得到一紙唱片約。

 

首張同名專輯《Birdy》卻為翻唱大碟,

利用其擅長的鋼琴彈奏為主軸,以動人的嗓音賦予歌曲新生命。

Skinny Love〉翻唱自美國獨立民謠樂隊Bon Iver

鋼琴聲包覆著空靈嗓音,訴說苦澀的愛戀。

 

Skinny Love〉

 


Come on skinny love just last the year

Pour a little salt we were never here

My my my – my my my – my my my my – my my...

Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

 

I tell my love to wreck it all

Cut out all the ropes and let me fall

My my my – my my my – my my my my – my my...

Right in the moment this order's tall

 

And I told you to be patient

And I told you to be fine

And I told you to be balanced

And I told you to be kind

And in the morning I'll be with you

But it will be a different kind

And I'll be holding all the tickets

And you'll be owning all the fines

 

Come on skinny love, what happened here?

Suckle on the hope in light brassieres

My my my – my my my – my my my my – my my...

Sullen load is full, so slow on the split

 

And I told you to be patient

And I told you to be fine

And I told you to be balanced

And I told you to be kind

Now all your love is wasted

Then who the hell was I?

Cause now I'm breaking at the britches

And at the end of all your lines

 

Who will love you?

Who will fight?

Who will fall far behind?

 

Come on skinny love

My my my – my my my – my my my my – my my...

My my my – my my my – my my my my – my my...

 

很難想像Birdy年僅15歲,歌聲和長相會不會太超齡了點!
