The Time of My Life真的那么糟?

 

David Cook在加冕美国偶像当晚唱了《The Time of My Life》,没跟进消息,我以为他决赛晚唱的《Dream Big》会是他将发行的单曲,却原来《The Time of My Life》才是得奖单曲?
  第一次听感觉比较平淡,觉得《Dream Big》比这一首好,还跳出了美国偶像冠军单曲的框框,可是当晚气氛太激动,我还是乱感动了一番。

  第二天网上到处都在讨论这首歌,很多人对歌词嗤之以鼻,尤其那句“magic rainbow”。

MSNBC有一篇很讽刺的文章:
  As for the song itself, it adds credence to the argument that “Idol"
viewed Cook as a way to make amends for Chris Daughtry’s early ouster
in season five. Which is to say that it sounds like a candy-coated
version of Daughtry’s “Home" crossed with Avril Lavigne’s “I’m With
You," its 6/8 time signature giving it an arm-waving sway as one last
gift to the annoying pit girls in front of the stage.


  
Cook barely flinched, which seems about right for a guy who may have
chuckled at the cheese that “Idol" served up twice weekly but who
always embraced it with “what the hey!" enthusiasm. Sure, the lyrics to
the single that introduces him to the world is a jumble of mixed
metaphors, but Cook certainly knew what he was getting himself into, and he
was ready for it.

  Yahoo!music的Lindsay Parker最幽默,她先问:
  “Why was David Cook REALLY crying at the Idol final?”
  Answer: because now he has to release “The Time of My Life" as his first single.

  哈?真有那么糟吗?
  我听歌很少看歌词,也对歌词没要求,好听就行。这首歌听了录音室版,不会是流芳百世的经典歌,但作为流行曲算是合格了,也因为David Cook唱得好,这首歌已经成为我mp3机里重播率最高的其中一首。

  《The Time of My Life》这星期在billboard hot 100中排名第3,David Cook成了第二位首张单曲无法在billboard称冠的美国偶像冠军(另一个是去年的Jordin Sparks),但他却是继第二季的Ruben Studdard之后,首周销量最高的美国偶像冠军,大家都在讨论他创下的billboard最多歌曲入榜纪录,倒也没多少人在意他单曲没拿冠军,也没太多人讨论“magic rainbow”。

David Cook

I’ve been waiting for my dreams

To turn into something

I could believe in

And looking for that

Magic rainbow

On the horizon

I couldn’t see it

Until I let go

Gave into love and watched all the bitterness burn

Now I’m coming alive

Body and soul

And feelin’ my world start to turn

And I’ll taste every moment

And live it out loud

I know this is the time,

This is the time

To be more than a name

Or a face in the crowd

I know this is the time

This is the time of my life

Time of my life

Holding onto things that vanished

Into the air

Left me in pieces

But now I’m rising from the ashes

Finding my wings

And all that I needed

Was there all along

Within my reach

As close as the beat of my heart

So I’ll taste every moment

And live it out loud

I know this is the time,

This is the time to be

More than a name

Or a face in the crowd

I know this is the time

This is the time of my life

Time of my life

And I’m out on the edge of forever

Ready to run

I’m keeping my feet on the ground

My arms open wide

My face to the sun

I’ll taste every moment

And live it out loud

I know this is the time,

This is the time to be

More than a name

Or a face in the crowd

I know this is the time

This is the time of my life

Time of my life

More than a name

Or a face in the crowd

This is the time

This is the time of my life.

This is the time of my life
