Lana Del Rey – Blue Jeans

很喜歡有故事的歌曲,不只是訴說情感,而是透過講述一個故事來表達情感。Blue Jeans這首歌敘述一對戀人,男方為了給女方幸福,而透過不法手段快速取得金錢,但女方卻覺得財富並非她所要的,她要的,只是兩人簡簡單單在一起而已,沒想到金錢卻將戀人從自己身邊偷走。

故事線很單純,但歌詞的寫作手法卻用了很多比喻和象徵。首先用早逝的電影明星James Dean來形容自己的戀人,James Dean代表的是ㄧ種反社會的頹廢風格,隱約帶出歌曲黑暗的結局。接著,You so fresh to death; sick as ca-cancer這一句中,fresh和sick都有cool的意思,但卻用death 和cancer(死亡和癌症)來形容愛人的酷,暗示他的性格將帶他走向死亡,帶他們的愛情走向死亡,為結局埋下伏筆。

敘述者想要的,只是兩人在一起的愛情,無論貴賤,都不會影響到這份愛,但對方卻誤解了,誤以為愛情必須用金錢來買,誤以為有了財富就能幸福美滿,殊不知這才是兩人走向分裂的原因。

最後,我想歌名叫做Blue Jeans應該也有某種意涵吧!牛仔褲是藍領工人的代表,代表了自己的愛人從前尚未被金錢迷惑時的打扮,自己最喜歡的,就是他那最自然,毫無作做的打扮,即使不是高級西裝,只要對方能常陪在自己身邊,哪怕是薪水不高的工人,哪怕是穿著褪色的牛仔褲,那就是自己的最愛。
