Window In The Skies by U2

第一次聽到Window In The Skies是在日本電視節目Music Station,U2被以巨星待遇安排在電視台的頂樓演唱這首歌,因為頂樓現場沒觀眾,U2 High不太起來,眼看Bono對著鏡頭假High,讓我聯想起AV女優必修十四堂課程之一:假高潮;有點替他們捏把冷汗。

也因為這樣,Window In The Skies並沒有在我腦海產生太大的漣漪,僅是另一首U2歌。

過了不知多久以後的某個失眠夜,在有線電視頻道衝浪時偶然轉到MTV台,聽到Bono的歌聲,但畫面卻不是U2,而是將黑白電視時代到近代的珍貴經典演唱畫面巧妙地剪輯成像對嘴般令人感動又懷念的巨星大加持,所以你可以看到Frank Zappa、Billie Holiday、Bob Marley、David Bowie、Frank Sinatra、The Smiths、Beck、Elton John、Ray Charles等巨星忘情歌唱,貓王Elvis Presley在see ee ee的飆假音,The Who、The White Stripes的鼓擊,古意的George在按弦,Kurt的縱身一跳,U2則融入台下觀眾一同為巨星們尖叫歡呼...........

雖然我還有很多巨星沒認出來,但看完MV整個大感動,有種搖滾樂總結時刻到了的錯覺。

The shackles are undone
The bullets quit the gun
The heat thats in the sun
Will keep us when there's none

The rule has been disproved
The stone has been moved
The grain is now a groove
All debts are removed, ooh

Oh can't you see what our love has done
Oh can't you see what our love has done
Oh can't you see what our love has done
What it's doing to me

Love makes strange enemies
Makes love when love may please
Soul in a strip tease
Hate brought to its knees

Sky over our head
Can reach it from our bed
If you let me in your heart
And out of my head

Oh can't you see what our love has done

Oh can't you see what our love has done
Oh can't you see what our love has done
What it's doing to me

Oh oh oh hhhhhhhhhhh
Oh oh oh hhhhhhhhhhh
Please don't ever let me out of here

I've got no shame
oh no oh no

Oh can't you see what love has done
Oh can't you see
Oh can't you see what love has done
What it's doing to me

Oh I know I hurt you and I made you cry
Did everything but murder but you and I
But love left a window in the skies
And to love I rhapsodize

Oh can't you see what love has done to every broken heart
Oh can't you see what love has done for every heart that cries
Love left a window in the skies
And to love I rhapsodize

Oh can't you see

有,我看到了,充滿愛呢!
