美国偶像今年的elimination song Ferras – Hollywood’s not America

继前年Daniel Powter的《Bad Day》、去年Chris Daughtry的《Home》在各位选手离开时在我们耳畔一次次的,成功演绎了排行榜神话之后,今年的美国偶像(American Idol)选择了唱作歌手Ferras的即将于今年4月1号发行的首张专辑《Aliens and Rainbows》的主打歌曲《Hollywood’s not America》作为新一季决赛阶段选手被淘汰时的elimination song。

在上周的Hollywood Week(S07E09、10)里,TOP24产生的同时,也意味着另外一百多位选手的离开。而这首质朴真切的《Hollywood’s not America》一次又一次的响起似乎是要告诉所有追逐梦想或者别的什么乱七八糟的东西的人们:他们的明星梦并没有终结——或许这就是FOX这种“民族主义”传媒最喜欢鼓吹的所谓“美国梦”所需要表现的。就像Ferras说的,这首歌,以及《Aliens and Rainbows》这张专辑讲述的正是:

“…that other place where you go in your mind, when you just want to escape – when the world lets you down, when you feel misunderstood. It is a place for dreamers and misfits and outsiders….”

不过,话说回来,这首美国味儿十足的歌曲还是很不错的,希望它能续写之前《Bad Day》、《Home》的辉煌。目前iTunes上已经开始发售这支单曲,有好心人也提供了高质量的ACC版本

Born Helena Jane
With a restless soul
She moved west to California
Became a Center-Fold

 

But once you change your name
Well the pieces fall
Now she hardly recognizes herself at all

 

And there is never any rain, when you want it
A hollow little game, and you have won it
Looking for a thrill but you have done it all

 

So long, put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood is not America
So long, put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood’s not America
O yeah

 

And everybody heres, from somewhere else
You could make a million dollars, but you might lose yourself
And you can take the heat will your heart go cold
They say acting’s just pretending, even that gets old
And there’s never any rain, when you want it
A hollow little game, and you’ve won it
Looking for a thrill but you’ve done it all

 

So long, put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood’s not America
So long put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood’s not America

 

And I know what to do when
I know that you
You can be anything you want to be

 

So long, put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood’s not America
So long put your blue jeans back on girl
Go home
Remember Hollywood’s not America
Hollywood’s not America
It’s not America

 

这边再贴一段Ferras本月12号在NBC的早间节目《TODAY》上的live的视频,个人感觉很一般的说~~

  1. 今年的elimination song很混乱的说,你看前几天的e19中Kady Malloy离开时就放的是KT Tunstall的《Suddenly I See》,而Luke Menard的是首挺有百老汇风格的歌。而轮到Asia’h Epperson和Danny Noriega时又用了这首《Hollywood’s not America》以及《Best Days》。我估计最后在他TOP12中也会使用《Hollywood’s not America》跟《Best Days》吧。

  2. 原来是《Suddenly I See》啊~~我说听起来怎么这么耳熟啊~~~
    貌似这首在ABC的So You Think You Can Dance S2中用过的哦~~~
