Iron Maiden - Aces High

       我最近壓力很大,因為已快逼近deadline,所以也沒空或心情寫部落格。剛才本來是在Youtube上聽Metallica合輯,中間突然冒出我很喜歡的這首歌,在這個時間點上顯得相當勵志。從MV看來,我想它大概是以英國抵禦納粹入侵為題材,歌詠空軍的英勇。雖然我是反戰者,但是非常欣賞堅毅、勇敢的特質,因此覺得十分感動。大概是我自己抗壓性太低,非常脆弱,所以一直很嚮往這種"never surrender'的硬漢形象。
There goes the siren that warns of the air raid,
Then comes the sound of the guns sending flak.
Out for the scramble we've got to get airborne,
Got to get up for the coming attack.
Jump in the cockpit and start up the engines,
Remove all the wheelblocks there's no time to waste.
Gathering speed as we head down the runway,
Got to get airborne before it's too late.
Running, scrambling, fire,
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again.
Running, scrambling, fire, Rolling, turning, diving,
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die.
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high!
Move in to fire at the mainstream of bombers,
Let off a sharp burst and then turn away.
Roll over, spin round to come in behind them,
Move to their blindsides and firing again.
Bandits at 8 O'clock move in behind us,
Ten ME-109's out of the sun.
Ascending and turning our spitfires to face them,
Heading straight for them I press down my guns.
Rolling, turning, diving,
Rolling, turning, diving, going in again.
Rolling, turning, diving, Rolling, turning, diving,
Run, live to fly, fly to live, do or die.
Won't you run, live to fly, fly to live, Aces high!!!
        而且1984年的Bruce好帥!:)我最近也買了黑色的皮外套喔!等著跟SlayerT恤一起穿的時刻到來。(不過真的有點不知適合何時穿,因為圖案是拿著槍的骷髏,背景都是血。穿去學校好像有點怪。XD)可惜,勇敢剛毅並不是靠服裝穿出來的。如「重金屬之旅」紀錄片所言,重金屬樂迷大多是年輕男性,他們對台上的同性表演者有強烈的認同,很希望自己長大後能變成這樣。雖然我是中年女性,但其實也差不多,不過當然是指這種音樂所呈現的剛強精神,而不僅是緊身皮褲之類的。此外,儘管我的性別認同似乎有點混淆,很羨慕「漁人的搏鬥」或「沼澤硬漢伐木」中的硬漢形象,但我想這也是性格特質而非性別的問題。世上應該也是有男性愛看烹飪節目,羨慕有一雙巧手的女主持人吧!
        雖然以前說過Iron Maiden不是我最愛的團,但作為一個啟發許多後輩的金屬團,我覺得他們的歌真的相當振奮人心,充分定義重金屬的精神。另一首The Mercenary我也好喜歡喔!也是在歌詠傭兵的勇敢堅毅:
Pay to kill, die to lose, hunted, hunter which are you
Diablo come again to make trophies out of men
Lose your skin, lose your skull, one by one the sack is full
In the heat dehydrate, know which breath will be your last 
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, you've got to kill to stay alive
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, you've got to kill to stay alive 
Show them no fear, show them no pain
Show them no fear, show them no pain
Show them no fear, show them no pain
Show them no fear, show them no pain 
Human heart, human mind, intellect intertwined
Focus sharp in the night, watch the jungle burning bright
Toe to toe throw the line, everyone's caught hand tied
Iron will iron fist, how could it have come to this? 
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, you've got to kill to stay alive
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, you've got to kill to stay alive 
Show them no fear, show them no pain
Show them no fear, show them no pain
Show them no fear, show them no pain
Show them no fear, show them no pain 
Show them no fear, show them no pain
Show them no fear, show them no pain
Show them no fear, show them no pain
Show them no fear, show them no pain
        尤其是重複的"Show them no fear, show them no pain",在許多時候激勵了我,絕對不要在別人面前露出自己的恐懼與痛苦。(這個部落格是後台,不算。)有的朋友或學妹常常在公開的FB或噗浪上抱怨現況的不如意,或曾經受到的傷害,對我來說是非常不可思議的。我絕對不會想讓認識又不熟的人知道這些,倒不是怕他們怎麼樣,只是覺得非常丟臉,大家都看到我軟弱、受傷的一面,那還得了!所以我也很介意伴侶太高調,把我這些面向讓別人知道。如果我沒整理好自己,絕不會出現在別人面前,除了後台的人以外。之所以這麼ㄍㄧㄥ,也是因為很認同這種勇敢的形象吧!「男兒有淚不輕彈」,只是回家自己哭,我一直這麼覺得。
        所以,即使現在壓力很大,我還是要勇敢一點撐過去。雖然我也很需要旁人幫我拍手,不過,終究是自己要面對的。在我的想像中,寫完博士論文之後,這生中應該(學術上的)什麼狀況都不會怕了吧?要勇敢一點,就像菲爾船長死了以後,船員們還是繼續去捕蟹,這才是向他致敬的方式。(「漁人的搏鬥」,這一集我哭得好傷心。)我也要克服自己逃避、恐懼的情緒,勇敢去完成這件事,在夏天邁向全新的人生。
