Boys Like Girls 라는 밴드.

치유, 재미 for SOUL:樂 2011.02.21 20:29 Posted by 지구별나그네
이번에 전국 일주를 하면서
한가지 준비를 안한 것이 있다면
바로 음악.

아이팟도 안챙기고
그렇다고 아이폰에 음악을 많이 넣어둔 것도 아니고
CD를 구워서 차에 둔것도 없다;;

그냥 듣는 것만 계속 들을 수 밖에 없는 상황;


우연찮게 어느 바에서 들은
아마도 어느 TV 프로그램에서 BGM으로 많이 사용해서
누구나도 많이 들어봤을 곡.

Boys Like Girls의 The Great Escape을 들었다.
이 곡은 그들의 2006년 self-titled album에 첫번째 곡.
세상에 알려진 첫번째 노래가 꽤나 인기를 끌었으니
몇 안되는 행운을 누린 밴드라 하겠다.

나는 어느 한 곡이 맘에 들면
그 뮤지션의 최소한 그 곡이 담긴 앨범이나
때론 아예 전집을 다 들어보기도 하는 습관이 있어서
(이거 때문에 mp3 파일만 200기가가 넘는거다-)
이들도 혹시 이런 종류의 노래가 없는지
다른 노래도 괜찮은지 다 들어봤다.


앨범 세개를 우연찮게 다 입수해서
여행하는 내내 많이 들었는데
그 중에 괜찮았던 곡 몇개 소개..


일단 첫앨범 첫곡부터.

The Great Escape.
역시 유명한 곡이라 저작권 때문에 유튜브 동영상 링크로 대체..
노래는 라이브로 들어야해ㅎㅎㅎ



Lyrics:
Paper bags and plastic hearts
All our belongings in shopping carts
It`s goodbye..
But we got one more night
Let`s get drunk and ride around
And make peace with an empty town
We can make it right

Throw it away forget yesterday
We`ll make the great escape
Won`t hear a word they say they don`t know us anyway
Watch it burn let it die
`Cause we are finally free tonight

Tonight will change our lives
It`s so good to be by your side
We`ll cry..
But We won`t give up the fight
We`ll scream loud at the top of our lungs
And they`ll think it`s just `cause we`re young
And we`ll feel so alive

Throw it away forget yesterday
We`ll make the great escape
Won`t hear a word they say they don`t know us anyway
Watch it burn let it die
`Cause we are finally free tonight

All of the wasted timing
Hours that were left behind me
Answers that we`ll never find
They don`t mean a thing tonight



Throw it away forget yesterday
We`ll make the great escape
Won`t hear a word they say they don`t know us anyway

Throw it away forget yesterday
We`ll make the great escape
Won`t hear a word they say they don`t know us anyway

Throw it away forget yesterday
We`ll make the great escape
Won`t hear a word they say they don`t know us anyway

Watch it burn let it die
`Cause we are finally free tonight



2년위 2008년에 나온 두번째 앨범
Heavy Heart는 겨우 6곡만이 수록되었다.
그런데 앨범 세개 중에 이게 제일 좋은것 같아ㅎㅎ

궁금했던 사진을 앨범 커버로 써주어 고맙기도하지ㅋ

이 앨범은 6곡 밖에 없지만
그 중에 세곡을 소개해야겠다.
많이 유명세를 탄 앨범은 아닌데
개인적으로 듣기에 괜찮은 노래들이 있어서..

첫번째 곡,
Free..
후렴구가 귀에 감기면서
흥얼대게 하는 곡.
역시 저작권을 피해갔다ㅎㅎ

Lyrics:
Carry on, you won't miss me when I'm gone 
Won't hear the phone ring 
You won't hear me sing 
Yeah I'm guilty, guilty of everything 
I'll run away 
Cause I've gotta find a place where you won't know me 
I wanna go so far 
Oh I'm guilty, guilty of every charge 

Throw away the horoscopes 
And don't you ever give up hope 
Without me, you will be... 
Free, without me 
You're free, without me 

Settle down 
And keep your feet touching the ground 
You will be okay 
You will see better days 
Just watch me 
Watch yourself fade away 
I love your mind 
I love your routine, daily grind 
All the words you say 
Oh your every day 
Just watch me 
You'll see I'm gone away 

Oh throw away the horoscopes 
And don't you ever give up hope 

Without me, you will be... 
Free, without me 
You're free 
Free, without me 
You're free 

Now don't worry 'bout a thing 
You can fly without my wings 
I know you'll make it on your own, I know 
Yeah if you stand up and be strong 
I know you'll carry on 
And I know that you will see that you're free 

Without me, you'll be... 
Free, without me 
You're free 
Free, without me 
You're free 

Now don't worry 'bout a thing 
You can fly without my wings 
I know you'll make it on your own, I know 
Yeah if you stand up and be strong 
I know you'll carry on 
And I know that you will see that you're free 
Without me




두번째 곡 Kill Me In A Record Shop.
얼핏 들으면 신나는 리듬이지만
의미 심장한 가사와
깔끔한 진행이 돋보임.

Lyrics:
Your kiss, your kiss will be the ultimate 
Your kiss, your kiss 

You walked in 
Indie rock used to be dirty pop 
Could you be everything; 
My rise and my fall? 
Rescue me, 9 to 5 
40 fires in your eyes 
I don't care what you buy 
Just don't you go 

No need to leave the light on 
There's no one here tonight 
Only you and I 

Kill me in a record shop now 
One shot and you took me down 
I could feel it when the arrow hit 
You sunk me with your deadly lips 
Your kiss, your kiss will be the ultimate 
Your kiss, your kiss 
I can't get over it 

Now, spin me 'round the record shop 
Look at you, the record stops 
Will you run, or flirt 'til it hurts? 
Dance with me, with your eyes 
As you scream through the aisles 
Bury me a 12 inch grave 
And don't you go 

No need to leave the light on 
There's no one here tonight 
Only you and I 

Kill me in a record shop now 

One shot and you took me down 
I could feel it when the arrow hit 
You sunk me with your deadly lips 
Your kiss, your kiss will be the ultimate 
Your kiss, your kiss 
I can't get over it 

Tonight, tonight 
Don't leave me tonight 
Reach for me, just one time 
As the sun sets behind 
Don't say goodbye, goodbye 
Don't say goodbye 

Kill me in a record shop now 
One shot and you took me down 
I could feel it when the arrow hit 
You sunk me with your deadly lips 
Your kiss, your kiss will be the ultimate 
Your kiss, your kiss 
I can't get over it 

Kill me in a record shop now 
One shot and you took me down 
I could feel it when the arrow hit 
You sunk me with your deadly lips 
Your kiss, your kiss will be the ultimate 
Your kiss, your kiss 
I can't get over it 

Your kiss, your kiss will be the ultimate 
Your kiss, your kiss 
I can't get over it




일상을 뒤로 하고 떠난 나에게
잘 어울렸던 곡.

심플하고, 어쿠스틱하고
읊조리는 가사 있고

내가 좋아할 만한 요소를 많이 갖춘 이 곡.
Let Go.


Lyrics:
Drink up baby down,
Mmmm, are you in or are you out?
Leave your things behind
'cause it's all going off without you,
Excuse me, too busy you're writing your tragedy,
These mishaps, you bubble wrap,
when you've no idea what you're like.

So let go, let go, jump in,
Oh well, whatcha waiting for,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown,
Let go, l-let go, just get in,
Oh, it's so amazing here,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown.

It gains the more it gives,
And then it rises with the fall,
So hand me that remote,
Can't you see that all that stuff's a sideshow.

Such boundless pleasure,
We've no time for later now,
You can't await your own arrival,
You've 20 seconds to comply,

So let go, let go, jump in,
Oh well, whatcha waiting for,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown,
Let go, l-let go, just get in,
Oh, it's so amazing here,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown. 

So let go, jump in,
Oh well, whatcha waiting for,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown,
Let go, l-let go, just get in,
Oh, it's so amazing here,
It's alright,
'Cause there's beauty in the breakdown.

The breakdown.
'Cause theres beauty in the breakdown.
It's so amazing here,
'cause theres beauty in the breakdown




2009년이니 그래도 가장 최근에 나온 그들의 앨범
Love Drunk.
이것도 많이 떴다.


이 앨범에서 뿐만아니라
일상을 떠나
전국을 방랑하듯 여행하던 나에게
가장 가슴에 와닿았던 곡.

Go.

앗, 저작권 위반 의심이라니
동영상 링크로..


약간은 시끄럽고
매끄럽지 못하지만
그때 그때 살아있는 편곡과
감정이 가득 실린
현장감 살아있는 라이브가 난 좋더라..



Lyrics:
Little change of the heart
Little light in the dark
Little hope that you just might find
Your way up out of here
'Cause you've been hiding for days
Wasted and wasting away
But I got a little hope today
You'll face your fears

Yeah, I know it's not easy
I know that it's hard
Follow the lights to the city

Get up and go
Take a chance and be strong
Or you could spend your whole life holding on
Don't look back; just go
Take a breath, move on
Or you could spend your whole life holding on
You could spend your whole life holding on

Believe the tunnel can end
Believe your body can mend
Yeah, I know you can make it through
'Cause I believe in you
So let's go put up a fight
Let's go make everything all right
Go on take a shot
Go give it all you got

Oh, yeah, I know it's not easy
I know that it's hard
No, it's not always pretty

Get up and go
Take a chance and be strong
Or you could spend your whole life holding on
Don't look back; just go
Take a breath, move on
Or you could spend your whole life holding on
You could spend your whole life holding on

Don't wanna wake up to the telephone ring
Are you sitting down?
I need to tell you something
Enough is enough
You can stop waiting to breathe
And don't wait up for me

Get up and go
Take a chance and be strong
Or you could spend your whole life holding on
Don't look back; just go
Take a breath, move on
Or you could spend your whole life holding on

Get up and go
Take a chance and be strong
Or you could spend your whole life holding on
Don't look back; just go
Take a breath, move on
Or you could spend your whole life holding on
You could spend your whole life holding on
Don't spend your whole life holding on





이제 마지막 곡.
Love Drunk인데 
원곡과 느낌이 많이 다른
Acoustic 버전이다.


Lyrics:
Top down in the summer sun
The day we met was like a hit and run
And I still taste it on my tongue (taste it on my tongue)
The sky was burning up like fireworks
You made me want you oh so bad it hurt
But girl, in case you haven't heard

I used to be love drunk
but now I'm hangover
I love you forever
forever is over
We used to kiss all night
now it's just a bar fight
So don't call me crazy, say hello to goodbye

There's just one thing that would make me say
I used to be love drunk
but now I'm hangover
I love you forever
but now it's over

Hot sweat and blurry eyes
We're spinning on a roller coaster ride
the world stuck in black and white
You drove me crazy every time we touched
now I'm so broken that I can't get up
Oh girl, you make me such a rush

I used to be love drunk
but now I'm hangover
I love you forever
forever is over
We used to kiss all night
now it's just a bar fight
So don't call me crazy
say hello to goodbye

There's just one thing that would make me say
I used to be love drunk
but now I'm hangover
I love you forever
but now it's over

All the time I wasted on you
All the bullshit you put me through
checking into rehab cause everything that we had
didn't mean a thing to you

I used to be love drunk
but now I'm hangover
I love you forever
but now I'm sober
I used to be love drunk
but now I'm hangover
I love you forever
but now it's over
We used to kiss all night
now it's just a bar fight
So don't call me crazy
say hello to goodbye

There's just one thing that would make me say
I used to be love drunk
but now I'm hangover
I love you forever
but now it's over

Now it's over
Still taste it on my tongue
Now it's over
