Up in the Space!

Kevin Renick “Up in the Air” deleted scene - Spacesuit Up in the Air - OST

到影院看电影时的【扫兴事】一箩筐,惟对于那些【制造噪音者】尤其一家数口小孩问大人答观众嘘的搅扰场面已近乎免疫当然偶尔还是会暗地里咒骂后求主赦免啦;而我最厌恶的则其实是清洁工人【机械式】的【赶客动作】拎着垃圾袋站在坐着看向银幕而没有垃圾要丢的你身边 + 瞪着眼等你识趣快闪那种。姑且不论【观毕片尾字幕对幕后功臣是最根本的尊重】这般大环境无形钳制的【本就理应】态度,很多时候因快闪而【走宝】的未必只是如同演唱会安哥般拿来搞的【延伸惊喜】,而很可能是让你我在片刻回想影片间作沉淀思索的悠扬配乐,亦有可能是一首勾勒影片轮廓的好歌。

瞎扯了234粒字,重点实为欲贴频共赏一部好片《Up in the Air》的一首好歌《Up in the Air》,嗯,确是很做作的押韵写法,就【同名主题曲】呗;惟自古以来,奥斯卡的【遗事】何其多啊;《Up in the Air》在输掉改编剧本奖前,其实已先遭遇原创主题曲因不合规格而出局的命运。

此曲乃原创人 Kevin Renick 的【失业悲歌】,当他毛遂自荐把录在卡带的 demo 呈交给导演 Jason Reitman 后,旋即因着词意切合影片主人公心境而被选用,更一度被看好可望竞逐奥斯卡【最佳原创歌曲】一奖;之所以【不合规格】:第一,此曲乃创自电影诞生的一年前,而非【为电影】量身订作;第二,歌曲没在片中或至少【最迟】于上片尾字幕之际同步播放,而是在中途就大概是清洁工人很不耐烦瞪眼不遂使出唉声加速赶客的字幕上了好一阵子后的时段播出。反正啊,条规这档事,在任何领域任何态况,都难免有其【盲点】;无论如何,好歌终究有其知音,并不一定要在奥斯卡【奢得好报】。

随博分享上述相信有不少【被赶离场】或【赶着离场】的观众都可能错过,含创作兼演唱人 Kevin Renick 口述介绍的【原声带版】电影同名主题曲,及以下他在电影首映礼的现场演唱版本。另外,也同时分享其中一段随正版光碟附录的删剪片段,故事发生在男主角【储足飞行里数】而如愿与机长会面的一席谈话后……;个人觉得,若保留于片中稍嫌跳tone,毕竟已近尾声,没必要让【奇思桥段】破坏倾向于【现实面相】的整体质感,惟【瞎当短片】来单看还算有趣,再加上经典民谣《Lonesome Town》作背景歌曲勾动情绪,煽情氛围绝对符合影片末章的愁意。

“Up in The Air” by Kevin Renick (Live Version)



I'm up in the air,
Choices drifting by me everywhere
And I can't find the one
That would help me do the work I've left undone,
'Cause I'm up in the air.

I'm making some plans,
Finding out there's always new demands.
And I can't be precise
When people ask me what I'm doing with my life.
I say, "It's up in the air."

I'm hearing from friends.
It's that tired, old advice again:
"You just cannot keep floating all around,
Oh, you got to get your feet back on the ground."
But it's hard to come down
When you're up in the air.

Da, da da da da da
Da, da da da da da
Daaaa, daaa, daaa, da da da
Mmm

I"m travelling in my car,
Always lost, though I don't go that far.
I find that I can live most anywhere.
Everyone I meet has so much they can share.
But I don't settle down
'Cause I'm up in the air.

I'm thinking of my past,
The comfort in my home that couldn't last.
Now my family tells me work for your success
And they want to see me find some happiness.
But I"m not sure where that is
'Cause I'm up in the air.

I'm talking with my peers,
Listening to them tell their inner fears.
Some have lives that haven't gone the way they planned,
And some are trapped in situations they can't stand.
But I don't want the same for me
So I stay up in the air.

Da, da da da da da
Da, da da da da da
Daaaa, daaa, daaa, da da da
Mmm

I'm out in the woods,
Something here does my heart so good.
I breathe the air and I know that I'm alive.
And I stare at all the birds as they fly by.
I guess it all goes down to them
'Cause they're up in the air...
