Music Monday:不改敢言本色,饒舌歌手Eminem 這樣回到Reading Festival舞台上

又名Slim Shady的美國饒舌歌手Eminem一向受Hip Hop樂迷歡迎,不過他好像在樂壇淡出了一好一陣子,事關有留意他的都知道,Eminem甚少在社交媒體分享自己的日常,一個月可能只有2至3則帖文。可能聽到大家對自己的思念,Eminem最近登上Reading and Leeds Festival的舞台了!

這次是他第三次在Reading Festival表演,而對上一次已經是2013年了。他身穿黑色T-shirt,上面寫著「FACK TRUMP」,高唱 Without Me等首本名曲,雖然現場大多是年輕觀眾,而Eminem已出道良久,但現場氣氛依然高漲,他還就當前的政治狀況發表了意見,似乎從沒忘記自己作為公眾人物的影響力,也一貫他以歌載道的作風,2004年時的反戰歌曲 Mosh就是很好的例子。

I say what I want to say and do what I want to do. There’s no in between. People will either love you for it or hate you for it.
(譯:我說我想說的,做我想做的。沒有灰色地帶。人們會因此而愛上你或是討厭你。)
-Eminem

雖說Eminem不活躍,但事實上他在秘密忙著籌備新的創作,去年在社交網上的一句「Don’t worry I’m working on an album.」(譯:別擔心,我正在準備新碟),就表明了他從沒偷懶; 這位最暢銷的饒舌歌手將會和其他藝人推出新歌,包括在2010已合作過、唱出Won’t Back Down 的Pink,還可能會有跟DJ Khaled的創作,傳聞他的新專輯會在這年的秋天推出,樂迷都拭目以待,今日就來重溫一下Eminem的作品吧。

Look
If you had
One shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture
Or just let it slip?
– Lose Yourself, Eminem

And to the rest of the world
God gave you them shoes to fit you
So put ’em on and wear ’em
Be yourself, man, be proud of who you are
Even if it sounds corny
Never let no one tell you you ain’t beautiful
– Beautiful, Eminem

I’m not afraid (I’m not afraid)
To take a stand (to take a stand)
Everybody (everybody)
Come take my hand come (come take my hand)
We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just letting you know that, you’re not alone
Holla if you feel like you’ve been down the same road
– Not Afraid, Eminem

除了將Hip Hop推到主流音樂,Eminem 17年前風靡一時的作品《Stan》也在最近為牛津英語詞典增加了新詞彙「Stan 」,意指「某個明星的瘋狂粉絲」,可見Eminem歌曲影響力之大,由音樂走到我們的日常用語呢!
