第一次聽到這首歌,是在一部極短篇電影裡頭,當時並沒有特別注意到,只覺得,聽起來滿舒服。沒多久,在一個ClubDJ又播了這首歌,club裡頭的人都high翻了;第三次,在一部美國電視影集裡,我再度聽到這首歌,發現這首歌真是紅遍英美,後來我才知道,這首歌這麼紅,當然是有原因的。

 

 

連維基百科都有介紹,<Standing in the way of control>The Gossip的成名作,The Gossip是在1999年成立的美國地下樂團,她們被歸類為獨立搖滾/另類搖滾( Indie Rock/Alternative Rock) 。

 

主唱Bath Ditto在美國政府決定否決同性結婚的權利後,寫下這首歌作為抗爭,Ditto說,雖然沒有人對於布希這個決定感到太過意外以及驚訝,但是我的朋友都覺得無助以及受到了欺騙」。「我寫下這首歌鼓勵人們不要放棄。對公民運動來說,這是一個令人寒顫的時刻,但我真的相信唯有大家團結一致抗爭,才能生存下去。」

 

2006年一月發行的專輯名稱就叫做<standing in the way of control>,同時也登上英國排行榜的第一名。

 

順帶一提,因為Standing in the way of...有避免防止...的意思,所以Standing In The Way Of Control 中文意思就是說"避免受到控制"。

英文歌詞如下:

 

Standing In The Way Of Control-The Gossip

Your back's against the wall
There's no one home to call
You're forgetting who you are
You can't stop crying
It's part not giving in
Part trusting your friends
You do it all again and I'm not lying

Oh oh oh
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control

I'm doing this for you
Because it's easier to lose
And it's hard to face the truth
When you think you're dying
It's part not giving in
Part trusting your friends
You do it all again but you don't stop trying

Oh oh oh
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control

Standing in the way of control
We live our lives
Because of standing in the way of control
We will live our lives
Because of standing in the way of control
We live our lives
Because of standing in the way of control
We will live our lives, lives, lives, lives on

Your back's against the wall
There's no one home to call
You're forgetting who you are
You can't stop crying
It's part not giving in
Part trusting your friends
You do it all again, you don't stop trying

Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control
Standing in the way of control

Because of standing in the way of control
Because of standing in the way of control
We will live our lives, lives, lives, lives on
