옛 친구들은
지금은 사라졌다

이상한 일이다



춤추는 곰.
곰은 이름을 여러 개 가지고 있는데
그 중에서 곰을 제일 좋아하는 것 같다

십년 쯤 전 이야기다
길을 다니면서 이 노래를 연속 삼백번 씩은 불렀던 것 같다




 



<노래하지 않는 새>          by Wonderbird (1999)


누군가 너무나 새를 사랑했었네
언제나 그의 곁에 두고 싶어했었네

튼튼한 자물쇠로 새를 가두고
그 노래를 듣고 싶어했지만

그 새는 노래하지 않았네
노래할 이유들을 잃었네

새는 언제나 날아가고 싶어해
그건 그들만의 자유야

아름답던 날개도 굳어가고 있었네
차가운 그곳에서 식어가고 있었네

이젠 더이상 필요 없어져
누군가 그 새를 내다 버렸지만

그 새는 날아가지 않았네
날으는 방법들을 잊었네

새는 천천히 죽어가고 있어
그립던 파란하늘 아래서

누군가 너무나 새를 사랑했었네
언제나 그의 곁에 두고 싶어했었네

튼튼한 자물쇠로 새를 가두고
그 노래를 듣고 싶어했지만

 

그 새는 노래하지 않았네
노래할 이유들을 잃었네

새는 언제나 날아가고 싶어해
그건 그들만의 자유야

아름답던 날개도 굳어가고 있었네
차가운 그 곳에서 식어가고 있었네

이젠 더이상 필요 없어져
누군가 그 새를 내다 버렸지만.

Neutral Milk Hotel 의 두번째 앨범 In the Aeroplane over the Sea(1998) 에 있는 곡
Oh Comely

인디밴드스러운 이름에 자켓에
나는 이런 이야기가 있는 가사도 좋아한다




 

<Oh Comely>      by Neutral Milk Hotel



Oh comely
I will be with you when you lose your breath
Chasing the only
Meaningful memory you thought you had left
With some pretty bright and bubbly terrible scene
That was doing her thing on your chest
But, oh comely
It isn't as pretty as you'd like to guess
In your memory, you're drunk on your awe to me
It doesn't mean anything at all
Oh comely
All of your friends are all letting you blow
Bristling and ugly
Bursting with fruits falling out from the holes
Of some pretty bright and bubbly friend
You could need to say comforting things in your ear
But, oh comely
There isn't such one friend that you could find here
Standing next to me
He's only my enemy
I'll crush him with everything I own

Say what you want to say
And hang for your hollow ways
Moving your mouth to pull out all your miracles
For me

Your father made fetuses with flesh-licking ladies
While you and your mother were asleep in the trailer park
Thunderous sparks from the dark of the stadiums
The music and medicine you needed for comforting
So make all your fat, fleshy fingers to moving
And pluck all your silly strings
And bend all your notes for me
Soft, silly music is meaningful, magical
The movements were beautiful
All in your ovaries
All of them milking with green fleshy flowers
While powerful pistons were sugary sweet machines
Smelling of semen all under the garden
Was all you were needing when you still believed in me

Say what you want to say
And hang for your hollow ways
Moving your mouth to pull out all your miracles
For me

I know they buried her body with others
Her sister and mother and 500 families
And will she remember me 50 years later?
I wished I could save her in some sort of time machine

Know all your enemies
We know who our enemies are
Know all your enemies
We know who our enemies are

Goldaline, my dear
We will fold and freeze together
Far away from here
There is sun and spring and green forever
But now we move to feel
For ourselves inside some stranger's stomach
Place your body here
Let your skin begin to blend itself with mine

역시 2005년 앨범인 Siberia에 있는 대박곡 중 하나

에코앤더버니멘, 하면 '복합적'이라는 느낌이 든다
그리고, 멋지다





<In the Margins>    by Echo and the Bunnymen


Tuck me in
I need to sleep now
I need dream how
I used to dream

Look me in
Look me in the face now
Help me believe how
I used to believe

Now do you see how
They're in the margins
Below and up above
I'll see now
How life wins
When all that's left is love

Row me in
Lessen my heart, love
Loosen my soul, love
Spirits and dreams

Hope begins
Right at the start of
The search for the gold, love
In the driving rain

Now do you see how
We're in the margins
We're below and up above
I see now
How life wins
When we're all that's left is love

We're all that’s left
Of love
We're all that’s left
Of love

Tuck me in
I need to sleep now
I need dream how
I used to dream

Look me in
Look me in the face now
Help me believe how
I used to believe

Now do you see how
They're in the margins
Below and up above
I see now
How life wins
When all that's left is love

all that’s left is love
all that’s left of love

Echo and The Bunnymen은 1978년에 만들어진 밴드다
나보다 나이가 많다
이들은 80년대에 제대로 '멋진밴드' 자리를 누렸다
그러면 보통은 전성기 음악들이 지금도 그 밴드의 최고의 음악일 때가 많다

하지만 이들은 반복적인 멤버교체(및 귀환)과 오랜 시간을 겪으면서도
1999년 What Are You Going to Do with Your Life?
2001 Flowers
2005 Siberia
등의 앨범을 꾸준히 내놓았다

그리고 놀랍게도
에코앤더버니멘의 최근 앨범들은
그 시간동안 가진 것을 갉아먹은 게 아니라, 시간만큼 쌓아왔다는 것을 보여주는
멋진 것들이다

게다가 도어즈 풍의 몽환적인 꽃청년이었던 Ian MacCulloch 는
원숙하고 노련한 목소리로 자라났으니
세월의 바람직한 면도 있는 것이다





이것은 81년 앨범 Heaven Up Here에 있는 곡 Over the Wall



<Over the Wall>    by Echo and The Bunnymen


The man at the back has a question
His tongue's involved with solutions
But the monkey on my back
Won't stop laughing


Over the wall
Hand in hand
Over the wall
Watch us fall


There's something to be said for you
And your hopes of higher ruling
But the slug on my neck
Won't stop chewing


Over the wall
Hand in hand
Over the wall
Watch us fall


I'm walking in the rain
To end this misery
I'm walking in the rain
To celebrate this misery
What's that you say?
Speak up, i can't hear you
What do you say?
I couldn't hear you


Over the wall
Hand in hand
Over the wall
Watch us fall


Out on the road coast to coast
..

I'm over the wall
...Come over the wall
..


I can't sleep at night
How i wish you'd hold me tight
I can't sleep at night
Come on and hold me tight...


I can't sleep at night
How i wish you'd hold me tight
Come on and hold me tight


I can't sleep at night
How i wish you'd hold me tight
Come on and hold me tight
Come on and hold me tight


I can't sleep at night
How i wish you'd hold me tight
Hold me tight
..
To my logical limit
..

2005년에 나온 싱글에 수록된 곡







<Stormy Weather>                  by Echo and The Bunnymen  (2005)



Hope you're feeling better now
Hope you got my letter, how?
Is my stormy weather now
gonna change?

Can I be like everyone?
Pretending that there's nothing wrong?
Remember when we walked upon
clouds that never rain?

And I need it more than love
And I love it more than life
And I want those stars above to shine this night

Baby, ever wondered why?
I could make you laugh and cry?
Eclipsing all your summer skies
some things never change

And I need it more than love
And I love it more than life
And I want those stars above to shine this night

You want it?
You got it
There's nothing chained down
You need it?
I'll steal it
Just put your name down
I'll put my name down

Hope you're feeling better now
Hope you got my letter how
Is my stormy weather now
Is my stormy weather now

Can I be like everyone?
Pretending that there's nothing wrong?
Remember when we walked upon
....
Clouds that never rain
Every cloud must drain

And I need it more than love
And I love it more than life
And I want those stars above to shine this night

You want it?
You've got it
There's nothing chained down
You need it?
I'll steal it
Just put your name down
I'll put my name down
You want it?
You've got it
Now I know it's to you I'm bound
You need it?
Godspeed it
Just put your name down
I'll put my name down

How's my stormy weather now?

How's my stormy weather?

Echo and The Bunnymen은
복고적이면서도 세련되고
익숙하면서도 실험적이고
편안하면서도 가슴을 울리는...최고의 밴드다

이런 멋진 음악은
널리 흘러야 한다

(그땐 몰랐는데, 2005년에는 여러모로 주옥같은 곡들이 쏟아졌던 것 같다)

아래 곡과 같은 앨범 Everyday I Wear A Greasy Black Feather On My Hat의 주옥같은 곡들

1. Moondance


The monkey's in
The monkey's sin
The monkey with a golden skin
He got news from the diamonds

The monkey's wall
The Monkey's call
The Monkey with the golden skin
He got news from the diamonds

Somebody told me so
I can't dance to the diamonds
I think I'll better go
My moon don't mind
It's light just grinds
The faces of the neverminds
They got their eye on the diamonds

The monkey's will's
Tmonkey's thrill
The monkey with the golden skills
He got news from the diamonds

The monkey's - a rocket don't fly
The monkey's - a tears don't cry
He got news from the diamonds

He got news from my hometown
He says the sun don't shine
He came down with the rainfall
And let the moon behind
And that ain't right
The monkey's pride ain't right





2. Moondog


I call me Moondog
Cause when the lights are low
I let the moonlight
Shine down upon my soul
And all that's gone wrong
Is told to wait 'til dawn
Don't need no burden
I gotta lay down low
Ease my worried mind, man
Can't worry all the time, man

Put off my crazy goals
And let the moonlight flow
I met a woman
One with a higher score
She said:'now, Moondog
I gotta get some more
Cause just your moonlight
Ain't what I'm looking for'
I says now woman
You gotta lay down low
Ease your worried mind, girl
Can't worry all the time, girl
Put off your crazy goals
And let the moonlight flow






3. Shall I Let This Good Man In



그렇지,
그럴까

Moondog Jr.

2009.08.09 13:59 from 공간/서울






dEUS 를 듣다가 흘러들어오게 된 Moondog Jr.
Zita Swoon인지 Moondog Jr. 인지 족보가 꼬여서 누가 누군지 지금도 헷갈리지만
이 곡은 Moondog Jr. 가 1995에 발표한 Everyday I Wear A Greasy Black Feather On My Hat에 있는 곡이다.

이 앨범을 처음 들었을 때
그 음악과 그 목소리가 줬던 놀라움을 잊을 수가 없다

그리고 이 곡은
특히 조용하고 냉정하면서 가슴을 후비는 처절함이 있었다
적어도 나한테는.

I can spend my time with those who wait
I can spend my time killin' time
We don't talk when you're around
I can spend my life in this crime

I'm like a statue made of ice
And she's looking just as good
And she's looking just as cruel

And it's not because of her lies
It's just in the way she does
All the things that she must do

And I'll be waiting 'til you're gone

You wanna know just what I did
I'll talk about your eyes
And I will watch you as you smile
And I'll try to keep you smilin'

I'm like a statue made of ice
And she's looking just as good
And she's looking just as cruel

And it's not because of her lies
It's just in the way she does
All the things that she must do

And she don't know what I do
But she holds it in her hand
And she throws it back at me

And it's not because of her lies
It's just in the way she does
All the things that she must do

And I'll be waiting 'til you're gone
