早已经忘记了去年Metallica来上海时,唱没唱过这首歌了。但我觉得,这么经典的歌曲应该不至于漏掉的。那天晚上,在现场跟着瞎吼乱唱的,其中应该就有它:“Never cared for what they do\Never cared for what they know\But I know……”多么熟悉的旋律,像原专辑——大名鼎鼎的黑唱片——封面的那条盘蜷吐信的黑蛇一样,叫嚣着一种男人信誓旦旦的坚韧。

翻唱这么一首歌的女子,就算不是个女汉子,也该是一个充满挑衅姿态的叛逆女朋,但Lissie偏偏二者都不是。这个八零后的创作型歌手,风格顶多也就是在Adult Alternative Pop/Rock和乡村民谣之间游走。此妞还喜欢把自己的头像作为唱片封面,并配上龙飞凤舞的亲笔签名,省了粉丝索讨的很多时间。可谁知,在这种强硬的流行做派下面,掩藏着一副生来抑扬顿挫、棱角分明的好歌喉。

翻唱Metallica此歌的关键点有两个,一个是吉他优美婉转的Solo,另一个就是遒劲有力的吐字。前者通过苦练,上手自然容易;后者则非有拿捏得十分恰好的本事不能为之。雀斑妹Lissie竟然都神奇般地做到了。她的嗓音有着其年龄所无法抵达的成熟,在晶莹剔透的前奏过后,歌声水到渠成地出来,一下子把James Hetfield那土匪般的声音清除出脑。Lissie十分自如地把握了这首歌的刚柔之度,柔里藏刚,刚中带柔,这种功夫,我在Nirvana和Alice in Chains的不插电现场中早已领教过,从一种温温润润中突然爆发,是宁为玉碎不为瓦全的荡气回肠。还是那句经典的旋律,Never cared for what they do\Never cared for what they know\But I know……此时带来的是另一种强烈的情绪感染,就像吉他间奏中砸向琴弦的清冽之声,有点脆弱,但却令人奇怪地倔强。到了结尾,Lissie收放转换,毫不粘滞,竟然有一种“曲终收拨当心画,四弦一声如裂帛。东船西舫悄无言,惟见江心秋月白”的艺术震撼!

突然间跳转到白居易的琵琶女,未免有些穿越,但这确实是我听过几遍之后的真实感受。想当年白香山感时伤事,一时不能自已,全因那琵琶声声撩拨起来的愁思。目前生活紧张,无暇动情,我当然没有那么多情怀可堪伤感。但Lissie演绎的《Nothing Else Matters》依然令我动容,只因她挑逗起来的,不仅有点对过去的回忆,还有点对将来的迷茫。

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trust in who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

I never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know (yeah!)

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trust in who we are
No nothing else matters

以泪洗面
