不要哭泣,妹妹

记得12年前的某天下午在朋友家看了一段令我至今难忘的视频,一位带者圆边眼睛的吉他手双目微闭,两只脚敲击乐曲的节奏,时不时的晃动脑袋,手指自由的在琴弦移动,忘乎所以,人琴合一,眼前的画面使我羡慕不已,而更打动我灵魂的是他发自内心的吟唱,Would you know my name If I saw you in heaven ,Will it be the same If I saw you in heaven …… 。这个看上去饱受岁月摧残的人就是Eric Clapton ,人们也叫他EC或God ,Blues音乐大师级人物,他的弹奏技巧不是以快著称,而是以Slow Hand名扬天下。

12前的那一幕幕画面今天依然记忆犹新,更值得高兴的是在网上知道了EC又出新专集了The Road To Escondido,这时EC和好友J.J. Cale的成功合作,可以在国内没有销售的,想尽各种办法终于弄到了专辑的全部歌曲,EC果然越老越有魅力。

 

 

专辑中的Don’t Cry Sister是我最喜欢的一首歌,自嘲式的曲风
再次讽刺了那些不会把握机会,不会珍惜机会的人,等机会远离他/她们的时候,剩下的只有内心的哭泣,后悔当初不该…. 它一直提醒着我永远不要做会令自己后悔的事。

 

 

Don’t Cry Sister

Don’t cry sister cry, it’ll be alright in the morning

Don’t cry sister cry, everything’ll be just fine

Don’t cry sister cry, it’ll be alright, I take no lie

Don’t cry sister cry, don’t do it, don’t do it

When Old Man Trouble knocks on your door

Don’t give him no key, he just wants more

He’ll turn your life to misery

Kick you down, just like me

Don’t cry sister cry, it’ll be alright, in the morning

Don’t cry sister cry, everything’ll be just fine

Woke downhearted and you feel so bad

Somebody wants something of nothing you had

Love don’t come too easy, you see

A little bit of you and a little bit of me

Don’t cry sister cry, it’ll be alright, it’ll be alright

Don’t cry sister cry, everything’ll be just fine

Don’t cry sister cry, it’ll be alright, in the morning

Don’t cry sister cry, everything’ll be just fine

Don’t cry sister cry, it’ll be alright, I take no lie

Don’t cry sister cry, everything’ll be just fine

Everything’ll be just fine

Everything’ll be just fine
