Selective Memory – Eels

Selective Memory - Eels
Eels由三个成员组成,是一支美国非主流乐队。九十年代初年出道时很毛头也很刺头,现在的专辑跟以前出的已经有很大不同,用他们自己的词来说现在是叫Uncle(叔叔)了。如果美国的乐评同行看到一个中国男孩在为一支如此过气的乐队而欢呼时,他一定会大为瞧不起,因为现在的美国非主流音乐界所吹捧的都是那些作风硬朗的东海岸独立摇滚(Indie Rock)、车库摇滚乐团(Garage Punk),而像Eels乐队这类老古董,如果没有钱作为动力,他们是不会尽心推荐的。乐队的名字很难用中文翻译,这是他们用名字玩的文字游戏,特别是对字母E的迷恋。国内没一个翻对了的(可能翻对吗?)有的译作“滑头”,有的译作“鳗鱼”。(文字作为一种符号,有暗示的作用,不准确的译名有时会很要命。)Eels主要借助的还是吉他,摇滚,电子和主唱弹簧片的嗓音。不过这不是全部,Eels跟别的乐队相比有着非常不同的气质。

歌词:
If I lay my head down
I will see you in my dream
Wearin that polka dot dress
And sittin by the stream
Leaning in to hear you
You will whisper in my ear
And everything I need to know
I finally hear

I wish I could remember
But my selective memory
Won't let me

When I was a baby we would
To out to the park
And sit out in the fountain
And splash around until it's dark
Days go on forever
When you only know that much
And everything you need to know
Is answered with one touch

I wish I could remember
But my selective memory
Won't let me
