感動人的歌聲--側田


一隻碟plug左四首上台,三個星期賣過25000隻,其實呢D數字可以一D意思都無,如果歌者沒有感情,再紅都無意思。

可能這就是唱作人的優勢吧,把自己的經歷和感情溶入歌曲創作裡面,然後自己演譯,深深刻刻地再一次親歷其境,歌者被自己的感受感動,歌聲就自然能打動人。
其實可以是很簡單的方程式,但奈何方程式的given不是人人有。
這幾天上網看了很多側田的訪問,從小在音樂家庭長大,唱歌對側田來說是given。他說唱歌是心靈療法,可以籍唱歌紓發感情。
我相信上帝是公平的,每一個人都有不同的方式去表達情感,有的人靠說話(like Jan!),有的人靠音樂,側田和周杰倫都是這樣的人。不是要作甚麼比較,沒意思,只是我覺得,能夠通過歌聲,接通對方的心情和感受,是很不可思義的一回事。
並不是唱功的問題(記得軟硬有句歌詞:唱得好都唔賣,唔識唱又出到街),是演譯的方法。側田型像不花巧,反而每次在台上都認真唱,這樣簡簡單單,很好。

細聽每一首歌,會聽出不同的情緒,loving you, superstar很甜,有被愛人輕拍頭的感動; white christmas很grand很warm,像下雪喝著一坏熱可可。冰淇淋之味側田的聲音唱起來輕輕軟軟的,很relax,像夏天看見雪糕車。Best thing in my life似情人在耳邊輕聲說情話,溫柔且誠實。

Justin這張唱片無疑經過很多市場計算,這個年代新人出碟,這種動作省不了。側田說他初入行時寫的歌唔賣,我想他一定經過很多妥協,才寫得出傷追人。Parco說很欣賞側田,我期望這第一張唱片做出好成績之後,老闆會給予多一點空間,讓側田有更多不同的作品。

I really admire him .. his voice, his range, his expression.. but I agree with some people about letting him try different types of music~
你有沒有聽justin 解釋'White Christmas'背後的意義? Very warm..

i agree with you, like i said at the very end of my article, i guess Justin can, and he should try more different styles in the future. but for the 1st album, i don't see any reason the company being explorative. after all they need to make sure they can make money out of it, which means it gotta be "the pop equation". sad, but that's how it works, at least the it's the "secure" way.

i did spend quite sometime to think about how to write this article on his first album, i don't know if you know, i personally do not enjoy canton pop alot, (not a fan of recent leo ku at all), and to be honest, i don't think the songs in justin's album is THAT great... but i think he did an extraordinary job in performing them, that's why i chose not to comment on the songs.

yes, i heard him talk about "white christmas", that girl with the card, hahhaa... i can sort of imagine the quite justin being bullied at school =P but yes, it was a warm story, i think Justin is a real "nice guy" wahhaha...

今日做歌手實在要綜合各種表演/表現能力……也許歌壇總是只看人氣,以支持人數定成敗,這已不純是能力問題了……

這是近來追看大陸的「超級女聲」比賽的最大感受。

最近睇到好多評論側田的報道,大至上一面倒認為黃柏高正以極速柞乾側田(有版你睇:古巨基),他將會淪為另一個搵$機器,當觀眾睇厭睇淨就會落得如許志安和陳慧琳的下場。(還記不記得他們風光的時候,每次上台拿獎也不忘多謝Paco?)
好似講到好恐怖?!雖然我唔係基仔迷,但見到"開始走下坡"呢D字眼都會替佢抹一把汗。側田呢?希望touch wood唔好真係應佢自己個句:上得快跌得快。
其實想深一層,未必全是paco的問題,他是生意人,不會做沒錢賺的生意,buy low sell high就實冇死錯人,呢個係市場定律,遺憾係正如pakkin所講,而家樂壇看人氣,純靠實力冇飯食。結果邊個得,就出碟,拍廣告,開concert,勁出碟再拍更多廣告,接住又開concert,逼住係歌迷未厭之前快D賺夠。
gold label其實同英皇一樣,天下烏鴉一樣黑,為的不是創作甚麼好音樂,其實都是娛樂圈的幕後黑手,將新人推出市場,再一手將佢地推落懸崖。分別只在於一家專找靚樣,另一家專找靚聲吧了。
