《Life in the Fast Lane》:一次违反交规引发的灵感

歌名的源由是有天Glenn Frey与朋友开车要去参加牌局,开车的这位朋友却在路上以120公里的时速,玩起了逆向的飙车。Glenn Frey赶紧说“Hey Man,Slow Down”,不料这位朋友却回答说“Hey Man,It’s Life in the Fast Lane”。于是,Glenn Frey很快将这段经历和体验,写成了一首歌。歌曲通过这种追求极限的刺激,引申出追求快感却一无所得的虚无主义情绪,对当时美国社会普遍的物质与精神生活的不平衡状态,进行了反省和批判。虽然手法并不激烈,但寓意同样回味无穷。

歌词:

He was a hard headed man he was brutally handsome

他是个英俊成熟的男子

And she was terminally pretty

她美到极致

She held him up and he held for ransom

他为她着迷,为她挥金如土

In the heart of the cold, cold city

这冰冷的心,冰冷的城市

He had a nasty reputation as a cruel dude

他有着恶劣的名声,像个花花公子

They said he was ruthless said he was crude

大家都说他无情无义

They had one thing in common

他们有同一个梦想

They were good in bed

他们享受床第之欢

She said, faster, faster

她说:快,快,快

the lights are turning red

红灯渐渐亮起

Life in the fast lane

生活快车道

Surely make you lose your mind

注定迷失你自己

Life in the fast lane

生活快车道

Are you with me so far?

你还愿意跟着我么?

Eager for action hot for the game

热衷这场游戏

The calling attraction the drop of the name

令人忘记自己是谁

They knew all the right people

他们知道如何做人

They took all the right pills

他们知道该吃什么药

They threw outrageous parties

他们穿梭于疯狂的派对

They paid heavenly bills

他们疯狂的买单

There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face

看着镜子里的脸,爬满皱纹

She pretended not to notice she was caught up in the race

她假装不在意,她已习惯这残酷的生活

Out every evening until it was light

日复一日

He was too tired to make it she was too tired to fight about it

他厌倦了追逐,她厌倦了争吵
