Like a Rolling Stone (1965) – Bob Dylan

How does it feel, how does it feel?
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone

Like a Rolling Stone (1965 – Bob Dylan

Rolling Stone 老是常出現?在1965年,Like a Rolling Stone作曲填詞演唱都是由Bob Dylan一手包辦。完成1965年英倫巡迴音樂會之後,回美國途中,Bob Dylan在疲勞的狀態下創作出這首歌曲。Like a Rolling Stone,屬於民謠搖滾(Folk Rock),歌曲長達6分鐘,Columbia 唱片公司。歌曲可喻為Bob Dylan標誌性的時刻—由民謠歌手轉為搖滾巨星,成為二戰後最具影響力的流行曲之一。

Like A Rolling Stone 這些歌曲受到大眾媒體關注,不少著名雜誌都有點名稱讚該歌曲,成為歷史上不可不知道歌曲之一。

另外,歌曲在製作過程可說是相當困難,令Bob Dylan 絞盡腦汁。經過一番嘗試,改變為Rock搖滾曲風,成為了Bob突破性的發現。但其實當時Columbia 唱片公司不太喜歡Bob這一個決定,因為歌曲長度太長,大約六分鐘。另外,歌曲的過重的插電聲音(Electric sound),令到當時發行遲疑不決。最後,當然也推出了歌曲。

歌曲翻唱歌手及樂團多不勝數,當中有The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley and the WailersGreen Day等。Rolling Stone真的老是常出現,歌曲在同名—滾石雜誌最偉大五百首單曲列為榜首。

歌詞方面

填詞作曲:Bob Dylan

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?
People call say ‘beware doll, you’re bound to fall’
You thought they were all kidding you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hanging out
Now you don’t talk so loud
Now you don’t seem so proud
About having to be scrounging your next meal

How does it feel, how does it feel?
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone

Ahh you’ve gone to the finest schools, alright Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
Nobody’s ever taught you how to live out on the street
And now you’re gonna have to get used to it
You say you never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but now you realize
He’s not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And say do you want to make a deal?

How does it feel, how does it feel?
To be on your own, with no direction home
A complete unknown, like a rolling stone

Ah you never turned around to see the frowns
On the jugglers and the clowns when they all did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain’t no good
You shouldn’t let other people get your kicks for you
You used to ride on a chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain’t it hard when you discovered that
He really wasn’t where it’s at
After he took from you everything he could steal

How does it feel, how does it feel?
To have on your own, with no direction home
Like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone

Ahh princess on a steeple and all the pretty people
They’re all drinking, thinking that they’ve got it made
Exchanging all precious gifts
But you better take your diamond ring, you better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him he calls you, you can’t refuse
When you ain’t got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You’re invisible now, you’ve got no secrets to conceal

How does it feel, ah how does it feel?
To be on your own, with no direction home
Like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone
