原版是電台司令(Radiohead)在1992年發的EP,但我是聽過Karen Sousa的爵士版本才知道這首歌的。

雖然說歌詞可能和調性不太合,但在台灣也許喜歡爵士的人也都有點怪咖吧。

歌詞部分原本是You're so fuckin' special,這個版本改成You're so very special. 有時候礙於年紀身分性別不方便說,但其實我內心偷偷地念著fuckin'而且覺得很過癮!

看了歌詞也對RH的主唱Tom Yorke十分感興趣,為什麼他會寫出這樣的歌詞。每個人都曾經自我懷疑,在喜歡的美好的人事物前自形殘穢,聽到這首歌應該或多或少能夠體會,那種恨自己不夠好,含淚放棄的感覺。

知道這首歌以後,我心裡頭常常浮現I want a perfect body,  I want a perfect soul 的吶喊, 也因為知道很多人會唱著 I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo, 我覺得比較沒那麼寂寞了。

簡單的歌詞,寫出深深的無奈與掙扎。Radiohead的版本也很好聽,Karen Sousa版沒那麼激情,比起Radiohead像是青春期還在摸索又無助的感覺,Karen版本有股成熟後坦然面對的風味。

 

 

 

 

 

Creep

When you were here before,
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel,
Your skin makes me cry

You float like a feather

In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so very special

But I'm a creep,

I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts,

I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul

I want you to notice

when I'm not around
You're so very special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep

I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here, ohhhh, ohhhh

She's running out again

She's running out
She runs runs runs runs...
runs...

Whatever makes you happy

Whatever you want
You're so very special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep,

I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't belong here...
