傳奇的開始與結束-John Lennon & Jim Morrison


12月8日,這是一年365天內再平凡不過的一天,可是我想對全世界的搖滾迷,尤其是The Beatles的粉絲們,這天是傷心難過的一天,是的,在1980年的12月8日,
Mark Chapman在Lennon與Yoko結束錄音返家的途中(在家門口)開了五槍,而這五槍也結束了Lennon傳奇的一生,我想Lennon傳奇的一生已經太多人撰寫了,我想我也不必在這裡多加贅述,今年適逢Lennon離開的25周年,因此用這篇短文紀念這位傳奇。

有死就有生,將時間再往回推,於1943年12月8日,另一位傳奇,一位蜥蜴王(Lizard King)-Jim Morrison誕生了,也是由這天開始他那傳奇而短暫的27年,27對搖滾迷而言又是一個謎樣又傳奇的數字,除了Jim Morrsion之外,Kurt Cobain,Jimi Hendrix 都是死於這個年紀,似乎要成為傳奇的要素之一就是不能活太久,The Doors 這個團是我除了Nirvana 之外最喜歡的團,理所當然的,靈魂人物Jim Morrison也是我相當喜歡的一位歌手,而這天也是他的冥誕,在此向他說聲"Happy Birthday To You,Jim..."

而在這個同樣見證了傳奇的開始及結束的奇妙日子裡在此播放兩首
第一首:John Lennon的《Imagine》,第二首The Doors的《Riders on the Storm》這兩首都是小弟百聽不厭相當喜歡的歌,在此用這兩首歌紀念這兩位傳奇.......

約翰藍儂對國外的影響直到如今都是深遠的。
每年聖誕節,禮品專櫃裡都擺放了The Beatles的專輯、照片、傳奇故事...等等相關物品,作為高價的禮品。

他,或說The Beatles,已經是那個世代的一部分了。

或許可以這樣說吧
"The Beatles就代表了那個年代"

John是個無神論者,卻是個最具體實踐的人道主義著,也難怪後來他覺得Beatles的角色已經不是他要的,他並不要披頭神話...

在God 這首歌裡他開頭就唱..
---God is a concept,by which we measure our pain,
(上帝不過是個衡量痛苦的概念)

---- Don't believe in Beatles
Just believe in me
(我就是神)

John Lennon 真的很神--

Cobain 提到...

God 的歌詞如下
God is a concept,
By which we can measure,
Our pain,
I'll say it again,
God is a concept,
By which we can measure,
Our pain,
I don't believe in magic,
I don't believe in I-ching,
I don't believe in bible,
I don't believe in tarot,
I don't believe in Hitler,
I don't believe in Jesus,
I don't believe in Kennedy,
I don't believe in Buddha,
I don't believe in mantra,
I don't believe in Gita,
I don't believe in yoga,
I don't believe in kings,
I don't believe in Elvis,
I don't believe in Zimmerman,
I don't believe in Beatles,
I just believe in me,
Yoko and me,
And that's reality.
The dream is over,
What can I say?
The dream is over,
Yesterday,
I was dreamweaver,
But now I'm reborn,
I was the walrus,
But now I'm John,
And so dear friends,
You just have to carry on,
The dream is over.
或許可以這麼說,Lennon並不想成為神,對於Lennon來說,"當自己"是更重要的,他寧願打破自己在眾人心中的那個"John Lennon",也要矢志成為自己心目中的那位"John Lennon",我是這麼認為的.......
anyway 歡迎cozy的光臨^_^
