Lana Del Rey – Blue Jeans

很喜欢有故事的歌曲,不只是诉说情感,而是透过讲述一个故事来表达情感。Blue Jeans这首歌叙述一对恋人,男方为了给女方幸福,而透过不法手段快速取得金钱,但女方却觉得财富并非她所要的,她要的,只是两人简简单单在一起而已,没想到金钱却将恋人从自己身边偷走。

故事线很单纯,但歌词的写作手法却用了很多比喻和象征。首先用早逝的电影明星James Dean来形容自己的恋人,James Dean代表的是ㄧ种反社会的颓废风格,隐约带出歌曲黑暗的结局。接着,You so fresh to death; sick as ca-cancer这一句中,fresh和sick都有cool的意思,但却用death 和cancer(死亡和癌症)来形容爱人的酷,暗示他的性格将带他走向死亡,带他们的爱情走向死亡,为结局埋下伏笔。

叙述者想要的,只是两人在一起的爱情,无论贵贱,都不会影响到这份爱,但对方却误解了,误以为爱情必须用金钱来买,误以为有了财富就能幸福美满,殊不知这才是两人走向分裂的原因。

最后,我想歌名叫做Blue Jeans应该也有某种意涵吧!牛仔裤是蓝领工人的代表,代表了自己的爱人从前尚未被金钱迷惑时的打扮,自己最喜欢的,就是他那最自然,毫无作做的打扮,即使不是高级西装,只要对方能常陪在自己身边,哪怕是薪水不高的工人,哪怕是穿着褪色的牛仔裤,那就是自己的最爱。
