Wolf Alice 与 Trainspotting

今天分享一个近年来英国的新秀独立乐队Wolf Alice。顺带安利波经典老片 Trainspotting《猜火车》)。

说起女主唱的乐队,大家第一反应都会是桃乐丝在的小红莓(The Cranberries)。除此之外还能惊艳到我的就是Wolf Alice的Ellie了。

国内青年知道这个乐队大部分是因为Wolf Alice的Silk被选为了《猜火车2》的配乐,Veronika离开的时候响起这首歌,气质与影片完美搭配。

00:00/00:00

《猜火车》系列也是非常经典的电影,影片中我印象最深的场景有两个,一个是第二部里陷入中年危机的屎霸与兰登坐在山丘上,屎霸问兰登如何戒毒,戒掉那些让你欲罢不能的事。

兰登告诉他:“离开,去对其他事情上瘾。”(兰登对跑步上瘾🏃‍♂️)

另外一个就是一二部中都出现了的那段关于Choose Life的独白。

第一部Transpotting里年少轻狂的兰登在影片最后说道选择生活。

Choose life.

Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing you last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you have spawned to replace yourself.
