The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony - 음악

1. 음원




2. 라이브(Live Oxegen 2008)



3. 소소한 이야기

1) 명곡
영국밴드 버브 3집 앨범 Urban Hymns(1997)에 수록된 곡이다. 개인적으로 역대 브릿팝에서 열손가락 안에 들어갈만큼의 명곡이라고 생각한다. 10여년이 훨씬 지났지만, CF 또는 TV속 배경음악으로 심심치 않게 많이 나온다.

2) 표절소송
"롤링스톤즈의 The Last Time" (음원링크: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzZHmHqEE7k&feature=player_detailpage)과 표절시비에 휘말린 노래이다. 사실 버브의 보컬 리차드 애쉬크로프트가 곡 쓸 때 롤링스톤즈에게 동의를 구했지만, 이 노래가 엄청난 히트를 치자 배아픈(?) 롤링스톤즈의 믹재거가 소송을 걸어 결국 표절로 판결이 났다. 그래서 이 곡의 사용료, 저작권은 모두 믹재거가 가져가고, 버브가 해체하는데 많은 영향을 끼쳤다. (해체 후 다시 뭉쳐 앨범 발매)

3) 인상 깊은 가사
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life... 이 삶은 씁쓸하면서도 달콤한 교향곡이기 때문이야



4. 가사

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
You're a slave to money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the veins meet yeah,

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
But I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

Well I never pray
But tonight I'm on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now

No change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no
I can't change
I can't change

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
Try to make ends meet
Try to find some money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places
where all the things meet yeah

You know I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change
But I'm here in my mold
I am here in my mold
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next
I can't change my mold
No, no, no, no, no

I can't change my mold
no, no, no, no, no,
I can't change
Can't change my body,
no, no, no

I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
Been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Ever been down
Have you ever been down?
Have you've ever been down?
