“来呀,我们的英雄,荣耀的希腊人,/请停下来,倾听我们的歌声!/没有一只船能驶过美丽的塞壬岛,/除非舵手倾听我们美妙的歌声。/优美的歌给你们快乐与智慧,/伴随你们平安地航海前进……”这是古希腊传说中塞壬女妖的歌声,充满魅惑,引人遐思。古往今来,可能也只有像奥德修斯这样理性得近乎残酷的人才能一饱耳福又经受得住挑逗。而Nancy Sinatra犹如塞壬般的美喉,只消唱出这首《Summer Wine》的第一句,就足以让我等凡夫俗子意乱情迷,径赴死地了。

在冬天遥想夏日,有一种置身老照片的感觉。草莓、樱桃以及天使的春之吻,将这些通通酿造成美酒,摆在混合着尘土、马粪、汗水等各式气息的街道旁草地上,晶莹剔透地等待着过往的骑手下马啜饮。美艳的女主人长裙席地,妙目流盼生姿,构思着一个精巧的陷阱。优雅的骑手伴着马铃儿过来了,他留着一道超级马里奥大叔的浓密上唇胡,他穿着带有银色马刺的皮靴,也许还叼着烟,戴着墨镜,像受到致命召唤一般,早已忘掉此行的目的地,下马前来。

这是1960年代才有的优雅与甜蜜,尽管它的深处潜藏着阴谋和危机。当年,Nancy Sinatra那招牌式的甜美笑容和阳光迷你裙正当红一时,而Lee Hazlewood那独一无二的萨克斯管质感的标志男中音也正暴得大名。这两种嗓音的合作,就像糖块溶解在黑咖啡中,醇香甜美的气息从六十年代一直弥漫到七十年代初。就像这首《Summer Wine》,弦乐编排的舞曲节奏洋溢着旧式风情,又满是迷幻牛仔的色彩和味道。性感,我只能想到这么一个词来形容,他们是借着周边的风物在毫不避讳地调情,踮脚、扭臀、耸肩、摆臂、颔首……他们在舞步中大胆地互相勾引。我最近听到这首老歌,是在电影《斯托克》中,徐娘半老的丧偶主妇与风度翩翩的小叔子在餐厅中恣意跳着贴面舞,每一寸肌肤都在为这种不伦的快感而兴奋地颤抖。不得不佩服导演朴赞郁选曲的毒辣,因为只有这样的节奏和对唱,才能既让你感到邪恶,又让你觉得性感之极。

塞壬的魔法依然保持着千年不败的神奇,因为我们每个人的心里都有那么一点淡淡的恶念在作祟。但是,没有意乱情迷的那一刻,你哪里会尝出天使的春之吻是怎样的滋味,那野草莓、野樱桃也不会如此地娇艳欲滴?Nancy反复地唱着同样的歌词,像在为你倾倒一杯杯芳香扑鼻的美酒;Lee的叙事包含着满足与享受,从清醒到麻醉都是一样的迷离恍惚,充满诗情画意。听这首歌,适合来点小酒,让脸颊和耳根微微发烫,让思绪回到那个粉红色的夏天,听你心爱的人絮语或为她歌唱,在模糊的视线中,和她一起呼吸,想象她的笑意。醉意中,我的嘴角邪恶地上扬。是个陷阱又何妨?作个危险的尝试又怎样?我只想做个甜蜜的失败者,在如此美妙的歌声和记忆中。

(NANCY):

Strawberries cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring

My summer wine is really made from all these things

(LEE):

I walked in town on silver spurs that jingled to

A song that I had only sang to just a few

She saw my silver spurs and said lets pass some time

And I will give to you summer wine

Ohh-oh-oh summer wine

(NANCY):

Strawberries cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring

My summer wine is really made from all these things

Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time

And I will give to you summer wine

Ohhh-oh summer wine

(LEE):

My eyes grew heavy and my lips they could not speak

I tried to get up but I couldn’t find my feet

She reassured me with an unfamiliar line

And then she gave to me more summer wine

Ohh-oh-oh summer wine

(NANCY):

Strawberries cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring

My summer wine is really made from all these things

Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time

And I will give to you summer wine

Mmm-mm summer wine

(LEE):

When I woke up the sun was shining in my eyes

My silver spurs were gone my head felt twice its size

She took my silver spurs a dollar and a dime

And left me cravin’ for more summer wine

Ohh-oh-oh summer wine

(NANCY):

Strawberries cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring

My summer wine is really made from all these things

Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time

And I will give to you summer wine

Mmm-mm summer wine

Ohh-oh-oh summer wine

以泪洗面
