Album #23

Emma's Imagination:《Stand Still》

她的名字 —— Emma's Imagination 首先吸引了我。

我很喜欢 Emma 这个英文名,感觉很有气质。Imagination,想象力,带有点幻想放空的意思,是我每天常做喜欢做的事之一。


听了专辑里的第一首歌《This Day》,嘿,她的声音果然没让我失望,而且整张专辑听下来每首歌都保持了一贯的水准。

后来我才发现,原来她的来历不小,是 2010 年时由英格兰和爱尔兰联办的【Must Be The Music】音乐比赛的冠军人才喔!

來自英國的女歌手 Emma's Imagination,本名為 Emma Gillespie,是英國音樂選秀節目【Must Be The Music】第一季的冠軍,2011 年初發行首張專輯《Stand Still》,收錄了在比賽中所演唱的自創曲「Focus」及「This Day」,十分有潛力的新女聲。

Must Be The Music】 was a British television musical talent competition contested by aspiring singers and musicians drawn from public auditions. The show was a music competition and reality show that was broadcast in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. The show began airing in August on Sky1, and is also simulcast in HD. The first and only series was won by female singer from Dumfries, Emma's Imagination, whose real name is Emma Gillespie.

Unlike 【X-Factor】 which limits itself only to singers, 【Must Be The Music】 is open to all musicians who are allowed to play their own compositions. Fearne Cotton, who presented the show described the show as "It’s about acts who can sing, play… or do both!"

Sipping summer through the air
Blows over the green to me
Leave behind spider lines
Underneath the tree where I was sitting

Finger trailing through the grass
Gently kiss my thoughts as they go
My feet are weightless carried on silver notes
Coming up from daffodils
Dance beside the road and

This day is mine this day is mine
This day is mine this day is mine

Cartwheel leaves pass my feet
Tickling the ground as they go
Cardigan on my shoulders
Taking in the colours of the park
I've got the feeling of that first strech
in the morning going on and on and on
Got my hallo swinging on my finger
For frisbee with the sun

This day is mine this day is mine
This day is mine this day is mine

And I want to share it, want to share it
Want to share it with you

这首歌是奥斯卡得奖电影《Once》的主题曲,一首非常优美的歌,前前后后被很多歌手翻唱过,包括两季【American Idol】的冠军 Kris Allen 和 Lee DeWyze,由 Emma 和 Irwin 翻唱的这首歌跟前辈比起来也毫不逊色。

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You'll made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing it loud
