《The Man Who Sold The World》

     这首歌收录于 David 引起轰动的1971年第三张专辑《The Man Who Sold The World》,专辑封面上David梳着长长的卷发,黑色长靴,丝缎长裙,胸口低开,只用两枚褡扣系住。这个美丽而在当时看来惊世骇俗的造型开创了真正的Glam摇滚的时代。一个花花公子的浅吟低唱,带着点玩世不恭,一点物质,一点讽刺,一点慵懒与诱惑,模糊了性别。音乐相对那个时代是复杂的,正处在音乐从早期披头士似的情歌中变质,并开始热中于各种音响实验的阶段,那些歌曲中经常充斥着一些不和谐与突兀。


We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend
Which came as some surprise I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone, a long long time ago
Oh no, not me
I never lost control
You're face to face
With The Man Who Sold The World
I laughed and shook hishand, and made my way back home
I searched for form and land, for years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazley stare at all the millions here
We must have died along, a long long time ago
Who knows? not me
We never lost control
You're face to face
With the Man who Sold the World
