Hozier


【楚爾秀音樂欣賞】

《Take Me To Church》是愛爾蘭歌手Hozier在2013年9月發行的靈魂音樂單曲,該曲收錄Hozier在2014年首發同名專輯。《Take Me To Church》於2013年10月登上愛爾蘭單曲榜的第二位,2014年6月哥倫比亞唱片將該單曲送到美國現代搖滾電台打榜,這首歌在美國告示牌排行榜最高登上第二名,不過在歐洲多國登上排行榜冠軍。

2013年Hozier在生活艱困的情況下完成《Take Me To Church》歌曲創作,這首歌最早Demo版本只有吉他與鼓兩種樂器伴奏,2014年Hozier上節目打榜及宣傳歌曲,有多種合音版本演奏。

《Take Me To Church》這首歌真正走紅是專輯的混音合聲版本,音樂錄影帶並以男同性戀主題造成爭議性討論,耐人尋味。MV畫面用黑白攝像呈現滄桑的灰暗色調,用冰冷手法訴說悲情的禁忌故事,給予觀眾聽覺與視覺的雙重震撼。

Hozier的歌聲經過混音變得非常深厚渾實,而充滿諷刺世俗的歌詞搭配靈魂音樂的曲調,輕易觸動聽眾的心靈深處。中文翻譯應該是"帶我去教堂",不過根據歌詞網友將其翻譯成"謊言教堂",顯然歌詞充滿對宗教反思的情緒,藉由神的存在,討論所謂的同性之愛能否被接納包容。

愛爾蘭的國家雜誌表示《Take Me To Church》音樂錄影帶是對最近全球出現的針對LGBT的暴力活動的回擊,特別是最近發生在俄羅斯的反LGBT事件。如果聽眾是傳統宗教的虔誠信仰者,這首歌曲的音樂錄影帶還是別看為妙,有雷慎入。

Hozier曾對愛爾蘭時報表示:「我發現愛上一個人的感覺和死亡一樣,一種一切都死去的感覺。就像你看著自己以一種體面的方式死去,你會體會到最短暫的一刻——以別人的眼睛看到自己——所以你曾相信的都已經消逝。一種死亡與重生的場景」。

"Take Me To Church"歌曲走紅也跟許多歌手翻唱有關,Neon Jungle,Kiesza,Orala Gartland,Demi Lovato,Ellie Goulding和Ed Sheeran都有翻唱版本。


《Take Me To Church》歌詞

My lover's got humour
She's the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody's disapproval
I should've worshipped her sooner

If the heavens ever did speak
She's the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday's getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week

"We were born sick," you heard them say it

My church offers no absolutes
She tells me, "Worship in the bedroom."
The only heaven I'll be sent to
Is when I'm alone with you

I was born sick
But I love it
Command me to be well
Aaay. Amen. Amen. Amen.

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I'm a pagan of the good times
My lover's the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice

Drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That's a fine-looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We've a lot of starving faithful

That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

No Masters or Kings
When the Ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin

In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human
Only then I am clean
Ooh oh. Amen. Amen. Amen.

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life
