    唱得是Rufus Wainwright這首歌收錄在Poses 專輯裡面這些是他出過的專輯Rufus Wainwright Album - Poses LyricsRufus Wainwright Album - Rufus Wainwright LyricsRufus Wainwright Album - Want One LyricsRufus Wainwright Album - Want Two Lyrics


    "I like to think of this record as a play with a cast of intriguing

    characters," says Rufus Wainwright of his new album, Poses. "My voice

    is the star of the play."

    He describes one of these characters, with typical frankness, as "a

    young, attractive bachelor who goes to the city and leaves as a

    complete drug addict." The track "Poses" is, in fact, a meditation on

    "the fall of a young man."

    "After I wrote 'Poses,' I knew I had a record," Wainwright explains. "I

    realized that song would be the 'anchor'; a lot of the album's material

    springs from it." He elaborates on the disc's subject matter: "I was

    writing about things in my life as they were happening, which is why I

    recorded a lot of the songs pretty soon after they were written. I was

    tackling more personal subject matter this time."

    So, is Wainwright the young man in question? "He's a composite of me

    and some people I feared were in trouble," the singer-songwriter

    confides, adding, "We're all okay, though - I think!"

    A bone-dry sense of frequently black humor is one of Wainwright's

    personal and professional hallmarks. This wry outlook, accompanied by a

    rich, world-weary voice and a gift for evocative melodies, made

    Wainwright one of the most celebrated creative forces to emerge in

    1998, the year his eponymous debut album inspired Rolling Stone to name

    him Best New Artist. Rufus Wainwright likewise garnered Top 10 Album Of

    The Year honors in the New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, New

    Yorker, Los Angeles Times and Washington Post.

    Wainwright was declared "one of the most whimsical and original young

    singer-songwriters to come around in years" (New York Times, April 3,

    1998) and touted as "a literate lyricist and gifted melodist and an

    irrepressible font of wisecrack and dish" (Village Voice, July 14,

    1998). These accolades presaged the Canadian native's 1999 Juno Award

    for Best Alternative Album.

    Like Rufus Wainwright, Poses (released June 5, 2001, on DreamWorks

    Records) is marked by sophisticated, highly textured pop. But the new

    album also demonstrates a bold foray into fresh sonic territory.

    Calling the recording process "exhausting but exhilarating," Wainwright

    says, "It was important I not repeat myself, musically or lyrically."

    Supporting him in this goal were producers Pierre Marchand (Rufus

    Wainwright, Sarah McLachlan), Alex Gifford (of the electronic duo

    Propellerheads), Ethan Johns (Emmylou Harris, Whiskeytown's Ryan

    Adams), Greg Wells (Creeper Lagoon, Crash Test Dummies) and noted

    contemporary composer Damian le Gassick. Guest performers included

    bassist Melissa auf Der Maur (Hole, Smashing Pumpkins),

    singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson, eels drummer Butch and Rufus' sister,

    Martha Wainwright.

    The tracks comprising Poses were selected from dozens Wainwright wrote

    over the course of several prolific months. Ranging from poignant

    illustrations of reckless self-indulgence to sometimes jaundiced

    observations of urban mythology, they explore deeper, darker, more

    direct emotional territory than the romantic odes of Rufus Wainwright.

    "California," for instance, details some of the stereotypes associated

    with The Golden State - perennial sunshine, obsession with vanity and

    celebrity, the potential to "suck the life out of people." "There's a

    line in the song that says, 'Life is the longest death in California.'

    You're seduced into this lifestyle of complacency that can really ruin

    a person if you're not careful," Wainwright warns.

    Album opener "Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk" chronicles assorted vices

    with self-deprecating wit, another of Wainwright's signatures and

    perhaps the lyrical trait that most frequently draws comparison to

    classic American songwriters like Cole Porter. "That one is somewhat

    autobiographical, too," he ventures. "I veer toward excesses of varying

    stripes. It spells some of them out."

    The disc's lone cover, "One Man Guy," was written by acclaimed

    singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III, who happens to be Rufus'

    father. "My own songs can tend toward dissonance and density and this

    one just has acoustic guitar and voices; it's a respite in some ways,"

    Rufus says. "It's one of the all-time greatest songs. When Teddy

    [Thompson], Martha [Wainwright] and I perform it live, it always brings

    the house down, so we had to do it for the album. But I could also kick

    myself for including it because I know it will be some people's

    favorite - and I didn't write it!"

    That "One Man Guy" is something of a departure on Poses reflects

    Wainwright's larger desire to experiment sonically. He and Marchand

    employed rigorous scrutiny when choosing songs for the album, which

    afforded them a certain freedom. "Once we acknowledged that a song's

    lyrics and melodies were strong enough to 'stand alone,'" Wainwright

    notes, "we started coming up with interesting tonal colors."

    He says of Marchand's overall contribution: "Pierre was completely,

    passionately diligent about capturing the songs' musical and emotional

    essence. I think he really honed his skills on this one - he kept the

    record stark and exact, as opposed to the 'kitchen-sink' style of the

    last album."

    Among the palette of sounds on Poses are strings and woodwinds -

    elements one might expect to find in the work of a modern classicist -

    but also drum loops and angular, feedback-laden guitars. The

    funk-influenced "Shadows" pairs bass clarinet and flute with a driving

    dance beat. Wainwright collaborated on the track with Alex Gifford,

    whose credentials as a studio maverick were well established on

    Propellerheads' DECKSANDRUMSANDROCKANDROLL (1998). "Alex was a total

    whiz on 'Shadows,' Wainwright attests. "I may have sung the song, but

    he played every instrument on it - and brilliantly."

    Having been called "brilliant" himself by more than one tastemaker,

    Wainwright is an artist whose stylistic singularity, adventurous spirit

    and critical embrace have created certain expectations among fans as

    well as reviewers. "Of course, I wanted the people who bought my first

    album to absolutely love this record," he comments. "But I also wanted

    it to capture a whole new set of fans, too. I didn't necessarily want

    to go completely 'popped out,' but I did want to make sure the music

    was accessible. After all, the most important thing is to communicate

    as clearly with the listeners as I can. I tried not to think too much

    about what the response might be beyond that."

    He again credits Marchand with helping him navigate Poses' creative

    path: "We were determined to leave out any song that didn't make the

    entire album significantly stronger. There were some hard choices, but

    Pierre was really into cutting away anything that didn't further the

    emotional impact of the record. I'm very grateful to him for that

    because, as I said, I have a tendency toward excess."

    He believes the result is a worthy successor to Rufus Wainwright. "The

    songs on Poses have been served, in every way imaginable, as well as

    they could have been. I'm very confident about the album - I think it

    speaks for itself." .歌詞在這邊

    Cigarettes and chocolate milk

    These are just a couple of my cravings

    Everything it seems I like's a little bit stronger

    A little bit thicker, a little bit harmful for me

    If I should buy jellybeans

    Have to eat them all in just one sitting

    Everything it seems I like's a little bit sweeter

    A little bit fatter, a little bit harmful for me

    And then there's those other things

    Which for several reasons we won't mention

    Everything about 'em is a little bit stranger, a little bit


    A little bit deadly

    It isn't very smart

    Tends to make one part

    So brokenhearted

    Sitting here remembering me

    Always been a shoe made for the city

    Go ahead accuse me of just singing about places

    With scrappy boys faces have general run of the town

    Playing with prodigal sons

    Takes a lot of sentimental valiums

    Can't expect the world to be your Raggedy Andy

    While running on empty you little old doll with a frown

    You got to keep in the game

    Retaining mystique while facing forward

    I suggest a reading of a Lesson in Tightropes

    Or surfing Your High Hopes or adios Kansas

    It isn't very smart

    Tends to make one part

    So brokenhearted

    Still there's not a show on my back

    Holes or a friendly intervention

    I'm just a little bit heiress, a little bit Irish

    A little bit Tower of Pisa

    Whenever I see ya

    So please be kind if I'm a mess

    Cigarettes and chocolate milk
