大吉嶺有限公司 The Darjeeling Limited 的音樂


這個電影正片前有個短片 HOTEL CHEVALIER,娜塔莉波曼參與演出,還全裸。男主角每次要見到她,就打開自己的IPOD放這首歌給美眉聽,後來想要把別人也這樣進行,電影看完我就上癮了,上網買了原聲帶,拿到手當天就一直聽,一上車就聽,聽聽聽聽聽聽,起碼聽了一百次.

手風琴的編曲真好聽。



 看了這古早片段才知道男主角兼編劇的傑森片中大鬍子造型跟此人彼得一模一樣。但歌詞怎麼也聽不懂,所以找了。貼來讀也很有趣。像個敘事詩一樣瑣碎卻好美。美。美。美。
 貼了之後其實還是不太懂,所以查了點裡面的人事時地物,才知道這是首老歌,Peter Sarstedt生在1942年的德里,印度第二大城,這首歌在1969年登上英國流行榜冠軍,想到自己聽的是比自己年紀大的流行歌,覺得挺開心的。

Artist: Peter Sarstedt
Title: Where Do You Go To My Lovely?

You talk like Marlene Dietrich(瑪琳黛德莉,古早電影明星,穿西裝非常好看,也是女生穿西裝的濫觴)
And you dance like Zizi Jean-Maire編舞家羅蘭PETIT的太太,也是舞蹈明星,而且許多名牌都有以她為名的包包鞋子等等)
Your clothes are all made by Balmain(皮爾帕門)
And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair

You live in a fancy apartment
Off the Boulevard St. Michel(說這街是拉丁區的中央,許多學生跟遊客住在這)
Where you keep your Rolling Stones records
And a friend of Sasha Distel.(一個法國帥歌手)

You go to the embassy parties
Where you talk in Russian and Greek
And the young men who move in your circles,
They hang on every word you speak.

But where do you go to my lovely...
When you're alone in your bed.
Tell me the thoughts that surround you.
I want to look inside your head.

I've seen all your qualifications
That you got from the Sorbonne (說是指巴黎大學)
And the painting you stole from Picasso.
Your loveliness goes on and on.

When you go on your summer vacation,
You go to Juan-les-Pins法國蔚藍海岸上的小鎮,就在尼斯南方,是跟紐奧良齊名的爵士樂城,風景美麗)
With your carefully designed topless swimsuit

You get an even suntan
On your back and on your legs
And when the snow falls you're found in St. Moritz(瑞士度假勝地聖莫里斯)
With the others of the jet set

And you sip your Napoleon brandy,(四年以上的白蘭地,也就是我們常說的 X.O.)
But you never get your lips wet

But where do you go to my lovely...
When you're alone in your bed.
Tell me the thoughts that surround you.
I want to look inside your head.

You're in between twenty and thirty,
A very desirable age.
You're body is firm and inviting,
But you live on a glittering stage.

Your name it is heard in high places.
You know the Agha Khan.(印度回教領袖)
He sent you a race horse for Christmas
And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh, aha aha.(我最喜歡這句歌聲當中的情緒!讚!aha aha~)

They say that when you get married,
It will be to a millionaire.
But they don't realize where you came from
And I wonder if they really care, or give a damn.

But where do you go to my lovely...
When you're alone in your bed.
Tell me the thoughts that surround you.
I want to look inside your head.

Ah, remember the back streets of Naples,
Two children begging in rags
Both touched with a burning ambition
To shake off their lowly-born tags, so they try.

So look into my face Marie-Claire
And remember just who you are.
Then go and forget me forever
But I know you still bear the scar deep inside, yes, you do.

Ah, I know where you go to my lovely...
When you're alone in your bed.
I know the thoughts that surround you,
Cause I can look inside your head.

 一首歌,學好多人,還有好多有錢人的典故啊!甚至還有一個可以想像的驚心動魄的麻雀變鳳凰的過程,真是個動人的故事。

 弄懂歌,竟然已經半夜一點了!但最近一想到可以聽到這首歌,邊聽邊開車,心情好得不得了。仔細想想,這首歌竟然說出了很多電影裡面沒說出的話,像繼承了龐大家產的男主角幹麻用這首歌在印度的大吉嶺特快車上把妹,意在言外啊!

後來找到了有人做了相關圖片的自製望文生義MV版本,很棒!



 越弄越多。竟然如此了。
