Hallelujah

几个月前,开始启动这个域名的时候,和yj颇花了一些时间来讨论用什么域名。最后还是yj起了现在这个名字 — haliluya。

这是一个熟悉的词,但是其实是一个误拼。大家平时所听到的,哼着的,欢快的“哈里路亚,哈里路亚”的正确写法是Hellelujah。yj后来更是给我们的公共blog取了一个我相当喜欢的名字 — Haliluya Means Hallelujah。生活就是很奇妙,在我生命前面得这么二十多年里面,我从来没有对这个充满宗教气息,赞美上帝的单词(或者若干音节的组合)产生过任何感情,我甚至不能正确得拼写。而这一次,当它出现在我面前,以haliluya的形式,却让我莫名得喜欢上了这几个音节得组合。而这种喜欢,仅仅是因为它的发音,而不是它所代表得任何文化含义。就这样,它成为了我生活里得最重要的单词之一。

不管你愿不愿意,只要你活在这个地球上,你总是通过各种不同的途径听过Hallelujah Chorus的对上帝的赞美之歌。没准,自己都可以随时哼出那个Hallelujah!Hallelujah!的旋律。是的,它很动听,它某些时候让人心情愉快。但是,我没想过我会真正喜欢一个以Hallelujah为主题的歌曲。

而当haliluya对我变得重要的时候,一首叫做Hallelujah的歌(不是那个Chorus)也突然打动了我,而这首歌,与欢乐无关。而我觉得,这其中得一起奇妙都是来自于那个几音节本身的奇妙。人们可以欢快得来颂它,而有人也同样可以悲呛得来吟唱它,同样得动人。

我要说的这首,其实也有了很多年了,它也叫做Hallelujah,首次出现在Leonard Cohen的1984年的专辑里。随后被很多人翻唱过,其中最著名得,就是早逝得Jeff Buckley在1994年的版本,也就是我喜欢得这个版本。这首歌,也让我有了了解Jeff Buckley的愿望,等有机会吧。

Well I heard there was a secret chord
that David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, neurosurgeon do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, more about the fifth, buy the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

Well Baby I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and i’ve walked this floor,
I used to live alone before I knew you
And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

Well there was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show that to me do you
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah

Maybe there is a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
And it’s not a cry that you hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah
Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah
