2006年,挪威石油公司Statoil ASA為了慶祝他們的鑽油平台Troll A platform創建十週年,在一個工程師兼音樂人的幫忙下聯絡了電視台詢問是否可以邀請明星到此演出,電視台回答OK,給了他們Katie Melua,一個目前有1800萬英鎊(合台幣約十億八千六百多萬)身價的巨星。


撩人的歌唱尤物Katie Melua宣傳照

本片屬紀錄片型演唱會,比重各佔一半。前半部主要訴說Katie跟她的樂隊接受了怎麼樣的訓練,生活平淡的油井工程師們又是如何緊張卻期待的規劃此活動。後半段當然就是Katie演唱她那些在英國家喻戶曉的成名歌曲,包括Nine Million Bicycles、It's Only Pain、Spider's Web、On the Road Again、I Cried for You、The Closest Thing to Crazy、My Aphrodisiac Is You跟其他我不知道歌名的歌曲。其中我最喜歡My Aphrodisiac Is You,接著則是The Closest Thing to Crazy及Nine Million Bicycles。


受訓情形

對於有著喬治亞共和國跟英國血統的Katie Melua,坦白說之前我完全沒有一點概念:沒聽過她的歌,沒看過她的人(不過還蠻漂亮的),這DVD也是隨手借來的,沒有預期裡面會是什麼東西,只是前陣子逃避時的娛樂之一。問了兩個CD大概都有千片的老朋友(一個證券交易員、一個跨國客服主管),Katie Melua在台灣雖有代理商但知名度不高,他們兩位對這女孩也沒什麼印象。看完影片,聽完音樂,我大概也能感受到為甚麼她能在英國樂壇殺出一片天。她的聲音帶點稚嫩,歌喉其實不算太好,技巧也屬初階,但她的歌帶一種舒服、簡單的沉醉,有種喝完一小杯伏特加的微醺感,想閉著眼到自己的想像世界旅行一下子。大概是這樣的感覺。



片中的工程師在影片開始19分時彈奏的鋼琴曲也很好聽,有機會看的人不妨感受一下。另外,這個演唱會是金式世界記錄裡面最深海的演唱會喔!



附送幾首歌的歌詞:

Nine Million Bicycles

There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That's a fact,
It's a thing we can't deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die.

We are twelve billion light years from the edge,
That's a guess,
No-one can ever say it's true
But I know that I will always be with you.

I'm warmed by the fire of your love everyday
So don't call me a liar,
Just believe everything that I say

There are six BILLION people in the world
More or less
and it makes me feel quite small
But you're the one I love the most of all

[INTERLUDE]
We're high on the wire
With the world in our sight
And I'll never tire,
Of the love that you give me every night

There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That's a Fact,
it's a thing we can't deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die

And there are nine million bicycles in Beijing
And you know that I will love you till I die



On the Road Again

Well I'm so tired of cryin' but I'm out on the road again
I'm on the road again.
Well I'm so tired of cryin' but I'm out on the road again
I'm on the road again.
I ain't got no woman just to call my special friend.

And I'm going to leave the city, got to go away.
I'm going to leave the city, got to go away.
All this fussing and fighting, man I sure can't stay.

You know the first time I travelled out in the rain and snow
in the rain and snow.
You know the first time I travelled out in the rain and snow
in the rain and snow.
I didn't have no fellow, not even no place to go.

And my dear mother left me when I was quite young
when I was quite young.
And my dear mother left me when I was quite young
when I was quite young.
She said Lord have mercy on my wicked son.

Take a hint from me mama please don't you cry no more
don't you cry no more.
Take a hint from me mama please don't you cry no more
don't you cry no more.
Cause it's soon one morning down the road I'm gone.

But I ain't going down that long and lonesome road
all by myself.
But I ain't going down that long and lonesome road
all by myself.
I can't carry you baby, gonna carry somebody



I Cried for You

You're beautiful so silently
It lies beneath a shade of blue
It struck me so violently
When I looked at you

But others pass, they never pause,
To feel that magic in your hand
To me you're like a wild rose
They never understand why

I cried for you
When the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you,
That beauty need only be a whisper

I'll cross the sea for a different world,
With your treasure, a secret for me to hold

In many years they may forget
This love of ours or that we met,
They may not know
How much you meant to me.

I cried for you
And the sky cried for you,
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter.
But this life was not for you,
Though I learned from you,
That beauty need only be a whisper

Without you now I see,
How fragile the world can be
And I know you've gone away
But in my heart you'll always stay.

I cried for you
And the sky cried for you,
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter.
But this life was not for you,
Though I learned from you,
That beauty need only be a whisper
That beauty need only be a whisper



My Aphrodisiac Is You

Some people say
That oysters make you come on strong,
But I don't buy it,
I don't believe my diet turns me on.
Don't take no pills,
That's the last thing that I need to do,
I can't deny it,
My aphrodisiac is you.

Alright, I could sniff some powdered rhino horn,
And go to bed in rubber gloves.
But I don't need no stimulation,
Potions, balms or embrocation,
I'm in love,
In other words:

Don't smoke no grass,
Or opium from old Hong Kong,
That hubble-bubble
Just makes me see you double
All night long.
Don't waste my time
With Spanish fly and roots to chew,
They cause me trouble,
Because my aphrodisiac is you.

Alright, I could sniff some powdered rhino horn,
And go to bed in rubber gloves.
But I don't need no stimulation,
Potions, balms or embrocation,
I'm in love,
In other words:

Some people like
To read the khama sutra first,
But I don't need it
I think if I should read it
I'd be worse;
Don't ask me why,
Because baby, I ain't got a clue.
I just concede it,
My aphrodisiac Is you.



The Closest Thing to Crazy

How can I think I'm standing strong,
Yet feel the air beneath my feet?
How can happiness feel so wrong?
How can misery feel so sweet?
How can you let me watch you sleep,
Then break my dreams the way you do?
How can I have got in so deep?
Why did I fall in love with you?

CHORUS:
This is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been
Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen,
This is the nearest thing to crazy I have ever known,
I was never crazy on my own:
And now I know that there's a link between the two,
Being close to craziness and being close to you.

How can you make me fall apart
Then break my fall with loving lies?
It's so easy to break a heart;
It's so easy to close your eyes.
How can you treat me like a child
Yet like a child I yearn for you?
How can anyone feel so wild?
How can anyone feel so blue?
