Don't Look Back in Anger

被蚊子吵了一夜,起床之後跟我媽說,我真的會殺死全世界的蚊子,那個一早就拿扁鑽鑽牆的,他們根本聯手。才中午,我已經腦神筋衰弱開始懶肖威了。

躺著還掙扎不想起的時候,滑到新聞,看著看著淚爬滿面。

前幾天的差不多時間轉開BBC news,原本沒有很認真聽,還一邊沖咖啡。但因為曼徹斯特演唱會自殺炸彈攻擊,造成22死及無數人癱瘓的事情實在太可怕,播報員口氣緊湊還夾雜live的哭叫聲音,我耳朵整個豎起來好好聽完,並立刻上網確認有沒有聽錯。

想起2015年的八仙塵爆,同一年的暑假我看到了Noel Gallagher在Fuji Rock台上唱“Don’t Look back in anger”。我永遠記得FKA Twigs表演一結束,所有人都拿著東西往後跑,我本來身在前五排,跟著衝刺了15分鐘,人很多,大家邊跑邊看時間,該結束了但他還在唱,我們只剩五分鐘,即使是五分鐘也必須要聽到。翻過這個山坡,Noel的聲音清清楚楚,前奏一下,所有人都開始尖叫,包括山坡上的我們,都快沒氣了,還是跟著唱“And so, Sally can wait. She knows it's too late as we're walking on by…”邊唱邊哭,所有人都不跑了,山坡上站滿了像生還者,各種國籍,狼狽的喘氣的,肩靠著肩一起跟著唱,簡直國歌。

我突然間懂了這首歌的意思。



新聞上寫了在哀悼會上,人群中女子突然唱起“Don’t Look back in anger”,她唱了幾句,大家便跟著一起唱了,有個在地人說這很曼徹斯特精神。我從沒有去過曼徹斯特,但是想想曾經Oasis、Joy Division、The Verve、The Chemical Brothers都從這裡發跡,好像應該去一下,跟我的青少年晚期有個什麼連結。

“When bad things happen we come together. We find the love rather than the hate.”




好吧,我先不殺蚊子了。
世界很可怕,不過幸好有愛。





Don’t Look back in anger(1995)
詞曲/Noel Gallagher


Slip inside the eye of your mind
Don't you know you might find
A better place to play

You said that you'd never been
But all the things that you've seen
They slowly fade away

So I'll start a revolution from my bed
Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside, summertime's in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
You ain't ever gonna burn my heart out

And so, Sally can wait
She knows it's too late as we're walking on by
Her soul slides away
But don't look back in anger
I heard you say


Take me to the place where you go
Where nobody knows if it's night or day
But please don't put your life in the hands
Of a Rock 'n' Roll band
Who'll throw it all away

I'm gonna start a revolution from my bed
Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside, 'cause summertime's in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
Cause you ain't ever gonna burn my heart out

And so, Sally can wait
She knows it's too late as she's walking on by
My soul slides away
But don't look back in anger
I heard you say

So, Sally can wait
She knows it's too late as we're walking on by
Her soul slides away
But don't look back in anger
I heard you say

So, Sally can wait
She knows it's too late as she's walking on by
My soul slides away
But don't look back in anger
Don't look back in anger
I heard you say

At least not today
