The School - I Don't Believe In Love (2010)

 

 

來自英國威爾斯(Wales)The School,以Indie Pop曲風為主,甜美復古的旋律和女主唱Liz Hunt溫柔撫慰的嗓音,令人一聽便可立即感受「Pop」與人生的美好。

 

然而,首張專輯《Loveless Unbeliever(前衛花園唱片譯為「失去愛情的無神論者」)卻告訴我們世事豈能盡如人意,特別是愛情。


開場曲〈Let It Slip〉以明亮的吉他聲響揭開序曲,Liz如蜜的歌聲教人著迷;

I Love Everything〉如純情少女告白;

Can’t Understand〉描繪戀愛中的失落情緒;

末曲〈I Don’t Believe in Love〉可說是「Loveless Unbeliever」的絕望宣言,

淡淡的失落、哀傷,或許只是口是心非,卻又那麼令人難以忘懷‧‧‧

 

I Don’t Believe in Love

 

You’ve really got me this time

It’s too late to leave

And neither of us wants to go home

But as we’re here let’s face the situation

Let me explain, I don’t believe in love

 

Tonight there’s no-one else above us

It’s just you and me

And all the idiots hanging around

Don’t have a clue what they’re trying to prove now

I soon realise I don’t believe in love until we dance

 

Well I, I think you’d better stop there

You hold my hand

It makes me wanna cry

Let’s take a vow

Don’t underestimate it

We both know it’s true, we don’t believe in love

 

And there’s nothing you can do about it

It’s unconditional, it’s unforgivable

There’s nothing you can do to stop it

Not anymore

 

Well I, I think you’d better stop there

You hold my hand

It makes me wanna cry

Let’s take a vow

Don’t underestimate it

We both know it’s true, we don’t believe in love

 

But you’ve gotta admit

It was as good as it gets

But don’t give yourself away

I don’t need anyone, no no no no

 

But you’ve gotta admit

It was as good as it gets

But don’t give yourself away

I don’t need anyone, no no no no
