這首歌真的很動聽,無論是旋律,或者是歌詞都深深打動著我。

Viva La Vida – Coldplay

老實說這個 MV 拍得不好看,不過歌曲真的很好聽。

一開始是因為 Fallen Kingdom,一首 Minercraft 的二次創作歌曲而認識到 Viva La Vida 這首曲目。Viva La Vida 的節奏配上 Fallen Kingdom 的故事,真的很搭調,有著一份只能意會的滄桑感。

自此我就成為了 Viva La Vida 的忠實粉絲,在每一台電腦、每一部電話上都一定會有這首歌存在。

這首歌的純音樂版都一樣好聽,我最喜歡 Ukelele 和 Guitar 的版本:

(Coldplay) “Viva la Vida” – Gino Silvestre (Cover)

Agustín Amigó – “Viva la Vida” (Coldplay) – Solo Acoustic Guitar

Viva La Vida 歌詞

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
“Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!”

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can’t explain
Once you’re gone there was never
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn’t believe what I’d become

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can’t explain
I know Saint Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can’t explain
I know Saint Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
