老歌亂談(1085)It Makes No Difference

推薦 3 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台

The Band ( 樂隊合唱團 ) 是個加-美樂團,除了鼓手Levon Helm是美國人,其餘皆為加拿大人。1958─1963期間,以團名The Hawks擔任加拿大搖滾歌手Ronnie Hawkins的專屬樂隊。60年代中期又受僱於美國歌手Bob Dylan,參與巡演及唱片錄製,當和Dylan的合作暫時終止,他們開始寫自己的歌,但為取何新團名有些舉棋不定,由於Dylan通常是以「The Band」來稱呼他們幾個,最終決定以此稱呼來作為團名。

Ronnie Hawkins & The Hawks

Bob Dylan & The Hawks

此曲為樂團的吉他手Robbie Robertson所寫,此位老兄頗具才華,The Band幾首知名的歌曲,像是《The Weight》、《The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down》等均為出自其手。Robertson的吉他造詣也頗高,在滾石雜誌「歷來100位偉大的吉他手」中排名第59。但厭倦於不斷重複的巡演,1978離開了The Band樂團。

這是一首失戀歌曲,且看來男主角仍克服不了因此帶來的傷痛。而各樂評們將此曲的成功歸於擔任主唱的貝士手Rick Danko,有說「Danko的聲音設法表達了這首歌的寂寞底部,同時保留了其魯莽的情感的放棄感,而聽起來卻從未放棄他的命運」也有說「Danko表達失落的方式中,有一些如此基本的東西,以至於它超越了自憐。」當然,也有樂評贊許Robertson的「痛苦吉他」和曲尾「薩克斯風獨奏」,補充了人聲的效果。

此曲收錄在The Band 1978的音樂影帶「The Last Waltz」中。

It makes no difference where I turn
I can't get over you and the flame still burns
It makes no difference, night or day
The shadow never seems to fade away

And the sun don't shine anymore
And the rains fall down on my door

Now there's no love
As true as the love
That dies untold
But the clouds never hung so low before

It makes no difference how far I go
Like a scar the hurt will always show
It makes no difference who I meet
They're just a face in the crowd
On a dead-end street
And the sun don't shine anymore
And the rains fall down on my door

These old love letters
Well, I just can't keep
Cause like the gambler says
Read 'em and weep
And the dawn don't rescue me no more

Without your love I'm nothing at all
Like an empty hall it's a lonely fall
Since you've gone it's a losing battle
Stampeding cattle
They rattle the walls

And the sun don't shine anymore
And the rains fall down on my door

Well, I love you so much
It's all I can do
Just to keep myself from telling you
That I never felt so alone before
