Every Grain Of Sand

《每一粒微沙》

Every Grain Of SandBob Dylan - Shot Of Love

Equal parts Blakean mysticism and biblical resonance, the song abandons the self-righteousness that plagued Dylan's religious work to offer a desperate prayer for salvation.

这首歌兼具布莱克式的神秘主义与圣经的共鸣,它摒弃了迪伦之前宗教色彩作品中自以为是,放下一切,祈祷救赎。

"Every Grain of Sand" taps into a moving humility.

《每一粒微沙》歌唱了动人的人性。

这也是乔布斯最喜欢的一首迪伦歌曲,波诺在乔布斯的葬礼上演唱了这首歌。

歌词中感伤地写道:

Sometimes i turn, there's someone there, other times it's only me.

有时我转身,空无一人;而那除此之外的时光,也只是我孤身一人

I am hanging in the balance of the reality of man

我悬在人类现实的天枰上

Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand.

像每一只坠落的麻雀,像每一粒微沙。

Visions of Johanna

《乔安娜的幻象》

Visions Of JohannaBob Dylan - Biograph

"Visions of Johanna" is a tour de force, a breakthrough not only for the writer but for the very possibilities of songwriting.

《乔安娜的幻象》这首歌是绝妙的,它不仅仅是作者的一种突破,同时也是歌曲写作在可能性上的突破。

"It's extraordinary," Bono once said. "He writes this whole song seemingly about this one girl, with these remarkable deions of her, but this isn't the girl who's on his mind! It's somebody else!"

“这首歌太棒了”,Bono曾说,“他的这首歌,对Johanna这个姑娘做了非常美妙的描述,这让这首歌看起来像是在讲述她的故事,但实际上,Dylan心里想的根本不是她!他心里想的是别人!”

The five long verses zigzag between Dylan's acute dissection of one woman, the tangible and available Louise, and his longing for an absent ideal.

五段长的歌词中包括了迪伦对一个女人和Louise的敏锐分析,以及他对一个根本不存在的完美人物的渴望。

The fiddler, he now steps to the road

提琴手缓步走到路上

He writes ev'rything's been returned which was owed

在满载鱼的卡车车尾

On the back of the fish truck that loads

他写道:“欠下的一切俱已偿还。”

While my conscience explodes

此时,我的良知爆裂

The harmonicas play the skeleton keys and the rain

口琴吹奏骷髅和雨水之音阶

And these visions of Johanna are now all that remain

而乔安娜的幻像是仅剩的残存

Mr. Tambourine Man

《铃鼓先生》

Mr. Tambourine ManBob Dylan - The Best of The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 12

"Mr. Tambourine Man" was the first time anyone put really good poetry on the radio. The Beatles hadn't gotten to "Eleanor Rigby" or "A Day in the Life" — they were still writing "Ooh, baby." But Bob's lyrics were exquisite.

《铃鼓先生》可以说是第一首将诗歌与音乐结合在一起的歌。当Beatle还在写“哦宝贝”这类词,离《Eleanor Rigby》和《生命中的一天》还有很长一段路,迪伦的歌词就已经很细腻了。

He was finding himself as a poet. He was learning to be beautiful.

他把自己当作诗人,他在学习如何优美地写作。

《铃鼓先生》是迪伦作词生涯的第一座真正高峰,抽离音乐,它就是一首非常棒的诗。

And but for the sky there are no fences facin'.

若非为了蓝天,也不会有围墙阻挡

And if you hear vague traces of skippin' reels of rhyme

要是你还听见模糊的印迹,韵脚跳跃旋转

To your tambourine in time, it's just a ragged clown behind,

与你的铃鼓唱和的,那只是跟在身后,一个衣衫褴褛的小丑

Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,

是的,在钻石的天空下起舞,一只手自由的挥舞
