卅年才醞釀出這麼一顆珍珠級的芭樂:〈The Search Is Over〉by Survivor


很多ROCK團會在整張喧囂不羈的專輯中,點綴個一兩首Ballad,說也奇怪,平常吵得要命的團,一旦收手收腳來唱慢歌,迷人度總是勝過那些以芭樂混飯吃的天王天后們。

1985年出品的〈The Search Is Over〉,出自Survivor《Vital Signs》專輯,在美國Billboard最高到第四名,是Survivor作品中我最愛的一首。

說起Survivor,最有名的作品應該是1982年《Rocky III》原聲帶裡的〈Eye of the Tiger〉,在英美都拿過冠軍(美國六週)。

其次是1985年《Rocky IV》原聲帶裡的〈Burning Heart〉,在美國拿到第二名。

自1978年組團的Survivor,將近卅年的歲月,發過九張專輯,卻經歷過14次的團員變動,甚至1989-1993年還處於解散狀態,或許也因為這樣,成績一直載浮載沉,能拿出來數的作品,也就這麼三首了。

不過,能出過一首讓人百聽不厭的芭樂,也是值得了!

當年的MTV(很標準80年代的風格)

主唱Jimi JamisonSão Paulo演出的版本(收音沒有很好)

歌詞

How can I convince you what you see is real
Who am I to blame you for doubting what you feel
I was always reachin’, you were just a girl I knew
I took for granted the friend I have in you….
I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Now I look into your eyes
I can see forever, the search is over
You were with me all the while
Can we last forever, will we fall apart
At times it’s so confusing, these questions of the heart
You followed me through changes and patiently you’d wait
Till I came to my senses through some miracle of fate
I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Now I look into your eyes
I can see forever, the search is over
You were with me all the while
Now the miles stretch out behind me
Loves that I have lost
Broken hearts lie victims of the game
Then good luck it finally struck
Like lightning from the blue
Every highway is leading me back to you
Now at last I hold you, now all is said and done
The search has come full circle
Our destinies are one
So if you ever loved me
Show me that you give a damn
You’ll know for certain
The man I really am
I was living for a dream, loving for a moment
Taking on the world, that was just my style
Then I touched your hand, I could hear you whisper
The search is over, love was right before my eyes
