《Love Actually》:Both Sides Now



在電影《愛是您‧愛是我》裡面,Emma Thompson發現老公暗自準
備的金項鍊並非送給她,而卻收到Joni Mitchell的專輯時,背景就是
以這位歌手的《Both Sides Now》來襯托中年太太察覺丈夫出軌的
情境。這首以過來人之姿,輕鬆卻略感無奈地道出對人生三個重要議
題的心情,對比到電影當下的劇情,非常讓人動容。

引用這位網友的文章中,將電影中角色的心境與歌曲的對照,寫的相
當好。同時也將Joni Mitchell年輕時與現今年邁50的兩個時期,分別
詮釋這首歌的差異,陳述的淋漓盡致。

引用的Blog可以聽到30年前的版本,那種輕快,對於人生頗有見地,
但帶著些許傲氣與釋然感的聲音。而30年後的版本……,我是真的很
想放在我的Blog,不過沒錢侍奉無名,只好作罷QQ,請大家務必去找
來聽聽看吧~

Both Sides Now / Joni Mitchell
﹝引用的文章中有翻譯,我覺得翻的很不錯,不過這邊還是附一下歌詞﹞

Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere; I've looked at clouds that way.
But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone.
So many things I would have done but clouds got in my way.

I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall.
I really don't know clouds at all.



Moons and Junes and ferris wheels, the dizzy dancing way that you feel
As every fairy tale comes real; I've looked at love that way.
But now it's just another show. You leave'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know, don't give yourself away.

I've looked at love from both sides now,
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall.
I really don't know love at all.



Tears and fears and feeling proud, to say "i love you" right out loud,
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds; I've looked at life that way.
But now old friends are acting strange, thay shake their heads,
they say I've changed.
Something's lost but something's gained in living every day.

I've looked at life from both sides now,
From win and lose, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall.
I really don't know life at all.

  • 我一直都有看你的影評,(不良牛的電影版),但今天是第一次留言^^。很羨慕你可以把
    對電影的想法這麼有條理,有結構,有深度的寫出來。我老是講話講不到重點,而且每一
    次看完電影,內心都有一些很深的感觸,但是,卻不知道怎麼跟別人分享自己的感動。

    Love is All Around其中有一段,愛上好朋友的新婚老婆,當女孩看到他所攝影的影
    片裡都是自己的時候,或是在他拿著大字報站在門外讓女孩看的時候。我的內心有一股說
    不出來的惆悵。人生就是這樣子吧!得到一些,少了一些,永遠不完滿,永遠有些遺憾。

    我覺得,看過這部電影,會讓人對愛有不一樣的感動呢!雖然他片段的在描述許多小故
    事,但是我覺得他把每段故事都很深刻的描繪出來。雖然跟我同行的男性友人,睡著了還
    差點打呼!

  • 另外,我剛剛同時下載了Joni Mitchell年輕時和老的時候唱的Both Side版本。
    (對不起,我也愛用正版,只是有時候很急的時候,等不到明天衝到玫瑰唱片行)
    老的版本,真的好友感情。不像年輕的時候唱得有點少年不知愁滋味。
