剛在pixnet首頁看到iPod廣告,
瞬間想起The Caesars(凱撒大帝)這個瑞典的indie rock樂團,
以及這首讓他們紅遍全球的Jerk It Out

ipod當初一系列的廣告都令人印象深刻,音樂也都很好聽,
我們先來回味一下iPod shuffle這支廣告吧!



● 這是The Caesars的MV:



● 歌曲資訊

演唱: The Caesars
歌名: Jerk It Out

專輯: 39 Minutes of Bliss (In an Otherwise Meaningless World)
發行日期: 2003.4
發行公司: Virgin  (UK)  ‧ Astralwerks (US)




● 關於The Caesars:

The Caesars團員的家鄉是瑞典,在當地用的是Caesars Palace這個團名,
但在北歐其他國家,他們又叫做Twelve Caesars,
之後才又以The Caesars的名字進軍北歐之外的市場,
如同一般歐洲樂團成名的模式,先打入英國,接著拿下美國市場,
由美國這個影響力中心發展全球版圖....

一個團搞出這麼多名字,還真是複雜啊,幸好都有個Caesars,不會太難記。

而The Caesars最為人所熟知的這首Jerk It Out
最初收錄在2002年的Love For The Streets 專輯,
以Caesars Palace之名;
2003年又收錄在以The Caesars之名發行的39 Minutes of Bliss (In an Otherwise Meaningless World)
單曲則分別在2006、2007年各發行過一次。



這首歌除了iPod廣告之外,也出現在許多電玩遊戲中,
例如SSX3、FIFA Football 2004 (=FIFA Soccer 2004),
PS2的 LMA Manager 2005,
以及現在很紅的跳舞機遊戲Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova (勁舞革命超新星),
可說是遊戲族的好朋友啊!





喔,說到跳舞機,
我覺得這東西的發明,對於音樂的推廣也挺有貢獻的,
讓新世代的小朋友們從遊戲中認識不少不同年代的歌曲 (雖然也很多芭樂歌啦),
Harmony身邊就有國小的妹妹曾經哼著Bee Gees的Stayin' Alive,嚇了我一跳~ XD

不過這種感覺還挺開心的就是了。


The Caesars最新專輯Strawberry Weed今年三月剛發行,24首歌的雙CD,
但目前似乎只有在北歐地區發行而已。

喔,順帶一提,Caesar的發音不要念錯喔!

● Bonus - 六呎風雲也有The Caesars的歌!

大家以為我放棄寫六呎風雲(Six Feet Under)了嗎?
哈哈,沒有耶,接下來還有幾首歌要介紹.........

其實原本要寫The Caesars被收錄在原聲帶的這首"(Don’t Fear) The Reaper",
但仔細一查,發現影集播出時其實用的是原唱Blue Öyster Cult的版本,
Harmony猜想應該是版權問題談不攏,原聲帶才改收The Caesars的版本吧?
只不過如此一來,以六呎風雲系列來介紹這首歌就有點尷尬了......

而此時,正好看到iPod廣告,覺得一切都是命中注定(?),
於是決定從Jerk it out切入, 這首(Don’t Fear) The Reaper就當作贈品囉!

沒MV,聽音樂吧~




● Bonus #2 - Blue Öyster Cult - (Don’t Fear) The Reaper




再附贈這首歌的原唱,也就是劇中採用的版本,
1976年美國老牌樂團Blue Öyster Cult演唱,當年排行榜最高名次是第12名,
這也是許多電視影集很喜歡拿來當作配樂的歌~



這首歌在六呎風雲中是出現在第二季第八集 (Episode 21) 
- It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,片中和片尾都各出現一次。

這段影片是劇末主角Nate參加完葬禮後,接獲死者Jessie的摩托車鑰匙,
騎車沿著海岸離去,一直到演職員表打完。

話說,這影集每一集的ending其實都很棒,用的音樂和場景也都很搭。
而這集在這整個五季中,也是許多人心目中最精彩的前幾名....

來看看這首歌出現的片段吧! 從2'45"時進歌...




● 歌詞


★ Jerk It Out


Jerk It Out單曲CD的封面


Wind me up
Put me down
Start me off and watch me go
I'll be running circles around you sooner than you know
A little off center
And I'm out of tune
Just kicking this can along the avenue
But I'm alright

Coz it's easy once you know how it's done
You can't stop now
It's already begun
You feel it
Running through your bones

And you jerk it out
And you jerk it out

Shut up
Hush your mouth
Can't you hear you talk too loud
No I can't hear nothing cause I got my head up in the clouds
I bite off anything that I can chew
I'm chasing cars up and down the avenue
But that's ok

Coz it's easy once you know how it's done
You can't stop now
It's already begun
You feel it
Running through your bones

So you jerk it out

Coz it's easy once you know how it's done
You can't stop now
It's already begun
You feel it
Running through your bones

And you jerk it out
And you jerk it out
And you jerk it out
And you jerk it out
Oh baby don't you know you really gotta jerk it out
When you jerk it out baby don't you know you really gotta jerk it out
When you jerk it out baby don't you know you really gotta jerk it out



★ Don't Fear The Reaper 




All our times have come
Here, but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear The Reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun, or the rain
(We can be like they are)
Come on, baby
(Don't fear The Reaper)
Baby, take my hand
(Don't fear The Reaper)
We'll be able to fly
(Don't fear The Reaper)
Baby, I'm your man

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Valentine is done
Here, but now they're gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity
(Romeo and Juliet)
Forty thousand men and women every day
(Like Romeo and Juliet)
Forty thousand men and women every day
(Redefine happiness)
Another forty thousand coming every day
(We can be like they are)
Come on, baby
(Don't fear The Reaper)
Baby, take my hand
(Don't fear The Reaper)
We'll be able to fly
(Don't fear The Reaper)
Baby, I'm your man

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Love of two is one
Here, but now they're gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn't go on
Then the door was opened, and the wind appeared
The candles blew, and then disappeared
The curtains flew, and then he appeared
(Saying, "Don't be afraid")
"Come on, baby"
(And she had no fear)
And she ran to him
(Then they started to fly)
They looked backward and said good-bye
(She had become like they are)
She had taken his hand
(She had become like they are)
Come on, baby
(Don't fear The Reaper) 


~ The End ~

  • drawtide
  • 還好你有註明,不然我就要唸做”咖辣”了! >///<
  • 噗,通常都會被唸成凱撒的音,你辣字是哪來的啊?XD

    不過我其實也有點懷疑,是不是羅馬文發音的關係...

    harmonyy 於 2008/07/26 22:26 回覆

  • drawtide
  • 哈哈哈, 因為我把Caesars 的sars發音成/zars/
  • 後來發現凱薩的音也是沒錯的 :p

  • 天啊~~沒有你,我還真的會唸成Kaeser哩
    怎會這樣?!

    你的文章好認真寫哦,寫一篇要寫一週吧~
    內容真豐富
    我會常來坐坐的^^
  • 這算是我搞烏龍...英文發音是我講的沒錯,
    羅馬文就是Kaesar的音了... 我最新的文章有寫 :p

    你好聰明喔,我寫一篇真的差不多要一週耶,每天早出晚歸時間很難控制...
    最近這星期這幾篇比較快,因為比較短 ^^
    之前寫最久的就是Alan Parsons Project樂團介紹那篇,然後是Funky和Creep那兩篇,
    這幾篇都是利用每天零碎片段的時間,外加週末熬夜,寫完真的就過了一星期....

    有空常來啊~

  • tiffwu
  • 你真是很愛音樂啊
    介紹的很詳細呢,我這人有個不求上進的習慣,不太會去查歌曲由來,除非很愛那條歌
  • 對啊,我很愛音樂,只要醒著沒在忙,幾乎都在聽音樂,愛查資料也是個人癖好問題 XD
    果然每個人喜歡的、擅長的事情都不一樣 ^^

    歡迎常來坐坐喔~
