在《Instant Karma》這張專輯裡聽到這首歌

1970年2月 藍儂發行了旋律優美的Instant Karma
兩個月後,劈頭解散
同年,藍儂與YOCO結婚,並且投身於愛與和平的反戰運動中
10年後藍儂被槍殺身亡...


這次,這張專輯再度問世
是因為蘇丹的種族屠殺行動
1956年開始,蘇丹政局動盪 境內種族問題嚴重
到2003年,蘇丹內的一支阿拉伯民兵團Janjaweed開始了殘酷的種族屠殺行動...


2007年,國際特赦組織發起Make Some Noise运动,
YOCO出借John Lennon的歌曲版權

U2,R.E.M.,Aerosmith,Green Day,Christina Aguilera,Avril Lavigne,Jack Johnson
和Black EyedPeas 等人翻唱John Lennon的經典歌曲
並錄製成唱片《Instant Karma : The Amnesty Interational Campaign to Save Darfur》
為蘇丹難民募款


這首 Working class hero 由Green Day來詮釋
一開始響起反覆的吉他聲
固定節奏刷法貫穿整首歌 令人深深著迷
正因為旋律簡單
而讓純淨又壓抑的聲音更為突顯
雖然在《Instant Karma》不是藍儂所唱
但是還是喜歡得不得了..


對於喜愛歌曲都不想要介紹太多
深怕會破壞自己聆聽的興味
那就請慢慢欣賞這首歌吧

歌詞:

《Work class hero》

As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
There's room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me
