唱歌she sings • lost stars cover // begin again soundtrack


begin again可以算是我近幾年來最喜歡的一部電影了! 

第一次看是去年從台灣飛回美國的飛機上,
當時看完整個睡意都沒了, 內心超級澎湃....
只想拿支麥克風來  開始唱歌!!   (搶機長的??) 

喜歡音樂的人應該都很難抗拒這部片吧..  
同個導演拍的”once” 當初也是讓我印象深刻, 還買了dvd   
這兩部片的音樂和劇情都太吸引人,  是會讓人陷進去的那種吸引


我常說music speaks to the heart
一般的話語可能只會傳達到人的大腦, 但音樂卻能觸動人心

begin again裡也利用音樂表達了許多人的內心,
無論是gretta唱給dave的, 或是dave唱給小三的lol,
甚至是gretta和dan一起聽對方手機裡的音樂..  
毎一首歌, 都有它的生命
毎一首歌都在尋找  那個聽得懂它的人


比起once 我更喜歡begin again,
因為音樂更主流一點, 加上劇情的節奏比較快,
而且最打動我的一點是  毎個人都有”begin again 再開始一次”的機會
 
dan和他老婆有了再開始的機會
violet和父母們有了再開始的機會
gretta也給予失戀後的自己再開始的機會

 

“you’re only as strong as your next move”
有人解釋成: if you have nothing planned, you are weak because you will always be hurriedly covering holes and making up for loss time. but when you know your next move you are strong and know what to expect.
當你預想好下一步該怎麼走, 那麼無論出現甚麼狀況  都不會打亂你的腳步, 因為你都已經計劃/預測好了, 就像下棋一樣, 通常贏的都是預測了好幾步之後的人

但我看完這部片卻這樣覺得:
you’re only as strong as your next move. so, step out!
必須跨出那一步吧!  也許那步還是走得很弱很無力, 但總比留在原地好
有了新的目標, 力量也會隨之而來, 帶領我們走入下一段旅程~


而整部電影裡, 我最喜歡的原創就是lost stars! 
前面已經講電影講那麼多, 對於歌我就不再贅述
只想說一句…. 它難唱到爆啊  hahaha
其他的就讓聽者自己去感受吧, 沒聽過原版的可以youtube一下,
adam跟keira的版本都好好聽!

 


begin again is the movie that i love the most in these couple years! the first time i watched it was when i traveled back to u.s from taiwan last year. i was about to grab the mic on the plane and start singing after i watched it!! that's how much it stirred up my heart!! 
if you love music, then you probably can't resist this movie. it's from the same director who made "once". that one was very impressing as well! the musics / soundtracks from these two movies are crazily attractive...

i always say music speaks to the heart. other words or languages might speak to our brains, but music speaks right to our hearts, sometimes our hearts even resonate with it. in the movie begin again, they used a lot of tracks to reflect the inner parts of each characters. the songs gretta sang to dave, the song dave sang to his affair, even the songs gretta & dan listened together from each other's phone... every song has their own life. and they are all looking for that one audience who can relate and understand. 

compares to once, i love begin again more, because the tracks are more pop plus the story-line flows faster. and the part that touches me the most is that it's stating: everyone has a chance to begin again. 
dan has a chance to begin again with his wife.
violet has a chance to begin again with her parents.
gretta also has a chance for herself to begin again after the painful break up. 
 

“you’re only as strong as your next move”
somebody explained this line as: the winner of chess games are almost always the one that can plan his next move. therefore,  the loser of the match is usually the one that is busy making moves for his current turn and can not foresee anything else. if you have nothing planned, you are weak because you will always be hurriedly covering holes and making up for loss time. but when you know your next move you are strong and know what to expect. 

but for me personally, after watching the movie, i feel like this: you’re only as strong as your next move. so, step out! we just have to make that move! even if that step is weak, it's still better than staying at the old spot. once we set our attitude right and focus on the new goal, strength will come. and we can step into our next journey. 


through out the movie, my favorite soundtrack is lost stars. i already talked too much on the movie itself, so i'll save my words about the song. just let me say one thing: this song is so freaking hard to sing!! LOL. okay, and i'll let the audience to experience the rest. if you never listen to the original tracks, please do so!! adam & keira's versions are both amazing!!

lost stars - adam levine

please don't see just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies
please see me reaching out for someone i can't see
take my hand let's see where we wake up tomorrow
best laid plans sometimes are just a one night stand
i'd be damned cupid's demanding back his arrow
so let's get drunk on our tears and

god, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
it's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
searching for meaning
but are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?

who are we? just a speck of dust within the galaxy?
woe is me, if we're not careful turns into reality
don't you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow
yesterday i saw a lion kiss a deer
turn the page maybe we'll find a brand new ending
where we're dancing in our tears and

god, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
it's hunting season and the lambs are on the run
searching for meaning
but are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?

i thought i saw you out there crying
i thought i heard you call my name
i thought i heard you out there crying
just the same

god, give us the reason youth is wasted on the young
it's hunting season and this lamb is on the run
searching for meaning
but are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?

i thought i saw you out there crying
i thought i heard you call my name
i thought i heard you out there crying

but are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?
but are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?
