瀏覽

《加州旅館》(Hotel California)是美國搖滾樂隊老鷹樂隊最成功的作品之一,由唐·亨利、格列·弗雷和Don Felder創作,由樂隊鼓手唐·亨利擔任主唱,發行于1977年2月22日。1978年,獲得了第20屆格萊美獎年度唱片獎,是最有具有美國象征性的歌曲之一,幾乎是美國鄉村音樂的代表詞。經典的吉他旋律、詭異莫名的歌詞內容、感人心弦的悲世情懷讓這首歌征服了大量聽眾,呈現出了一位走在通向20世紀70年代高速路上的嬉皮士所追求的理想與精神世界的自由。歌詞全文如下:

On a dark desert highway,cool wind in my hair

在黑暗的沙漠高速公路上,涼風吹動頭發

Warm smell of colitas,rising up through the air

大ma暖暖的氣味彌散在空氣中

Up ahead in the distance,I saw a shimmering light

在遙遠的前方,我看見閃爍的燈火

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim,I had to stop for the night

我的頭開始發沉,視線開始模糊,我必須停車過夜

There she stood in the doorway;I heard the mission bell

她站在門廳,神圣的鐘聲隱約可辨

And I was thinking to myself,‘This could be Heaven or this could be Hell'

我心想:“這兒也許是天堂,也許是地獄”

Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way

接著她點燃蠟燭為我引路

There were voices down the corridor,I thought I heard them say...

走廊上時不時我聽到他們說的是……

Welcome to the Hotel California

歡迎光臨加州旅館

Such a lovely place,such a lovely face

這么美妙的地方,這么美麗的面容

Plenty of room at the Hotel California

加州旅館有充裕的客房

Any time of year,you can find it here

一年四季,隨時入住

Her mind is Tiffany- twisted

她的心為珠寶所扭曲

She got the Mercedes Benz

她擁有豪華奔馳車

She got a lot of pretty,pretty boys, she calls friends

她有很多很多帥哥,她都稱朋友

How they dance in the courtyard,sweet summer sweat.

他們當院翩翩起舞,夏日的香汗淋漓

Some dance to remember,some dance to forget

起舞或為回憶,起舞或為忘卻

So I called up the Captain,‘Please bring me my wine’

于是我叫來領班,“請給我來點酒”

He said,‘We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine’

他說:“自從1969年之后我們再沒有烈性酒了”

And still those voices are calling from far away,

還是走廊聽來的那些話語從遠處傳來

Wake you up in the middle of the night,Just to hear them say

將你從午夜的睡夢中喚醒,他們說

Welcome to the Hotel California

歡迎光臨加州旅館

Such a lovely place,such a lovely face

這么美妙的地方,這么美麗的面容

They're livin' it up at the Hotel California

他們在加州旅館縱情歡樂

What a nice surprise,bring your alibis

多么美妙的驚喜,找個借口來吧

Mirrors on the ceiling,the pink champagne on ice

天花板上鑲著鏡子,冰塊里粉色的香檳

And she said‘We are all just prisoners here,of our own device’

她說:“我們都只不過是自己設下牢籠中的囚徒”

And in the master's chambers,they gathered for the feast

而在總經理的客廳,他們正聚享盛筵

They stab it with their steely knives,but they just can't kill the beast

他們鋼刀齊下,卻殺不掉那只野獸盛筵

Last thing I remember,I was running for the door

我記得的最后一件事,是我奔向大門

I had to find the passage back to the place I was before

我必須找到通往從前所在的出路

‘Relax,’said the night man,‘We are programmed to receive.

執宿人說:“別緊張,我們只有迎客計劃。

You can checkout any time you like,but you can never leave!’

你可以隨時結帳,但你永遠無法離開。”

許多人,給這首歌加入了許多“深刻”的內涵,然后《加州旅館》的創作者兼主唱唐·亨利認為歌曲講的是從天真到成熟的旅程,講的是天真的逝去,僅此而已。ok,僅僅是歌,好聽,有感受,足矣……
