Paint It Black (1966) – The Rolling Stones

I wanna see it painted
Painted black
Black as night
Black as coal

Paint It Black (1966) – The Rolling Stones

今天要介紹的歌曲是由The Rolling Stones在1966年推出的Paint it Black,歌曲長達3分鐘46秒,屬於Raga rock及Psychedelia迷幻搖滾風格。填詞作曲由樂隊金牌組合 — Jagger–Richards,Mick Jagger 及 Kith Richards。歌曲屬於快節奏的類型,受到印度、中東及東歐文化影響歌曲旋律,曲中運用到印度古樂器錫塔琴由樂隊中Brian Jones彈奏。歌詞主要圍繞死亡及悲痛,發行歌曲英美兩個版本同年推出。

歌曲推出後,評論正負兩極。有人批抨Paint it Black有抄襲嫌疑,特別是錫塔琴的樂器,被指抄襲The Beatles樂隊—歌曲為Norwegian Wood。當然,The Rolling Stones的狂熱粉絲對此有所保留。

談到Brian Jones所彈奏的錫塔琴,是因為他為了解悶,找了一些東方樂器來學習。這個舉動令樂隊充滿特色,更令Brian多才多藝,熟悉多項樂器,向印度音樂家拜師學習錫塔琴。

歌曲被《滾石》雜誌列入500首經典歌曲排行榜,被英國唱片業協會(BPI)評為 白金唱片,被義大利音樂產業聯盟(FIMI)評為金唱片。在2018年,被列入格萊美搖滾名人堂。在當時英國及美國歌曲排行榜,長期處於三甲位置。除此之外,歌曲被廣泛使用在電子遊戲的音樂。

I see a red door
And I want it painted black
No colors anymore
I want them to turn black

I see the girls walk by
Dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head
Until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars
And they’re all painted black
With flowers and my love
Both never to come back

I’ve seen people turn their heads
And quickly look away
Like a newborn baby
It just happens everyday

I look inside myself
And see my heart is black
I see my red door
I must have it painted black

Maybe then, I’ll fade away
And not have to face the facts
It’s not easy facing up
When your whole world is black

No more will my green sea
Go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing
Happening to you

If I look hard enough
Into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me
Before the morning comes

I see a red door
And I want it painted black
No colors anymore
I want them to turn black

I see the girls walk by
Dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head
Until my darkness goes

I wanna see it painted
Painted black
Black as night
Black as coal

I wanna see the sun
Blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted
Painted black, yeah
