往事如絲

老套歸老套,還是要說:Youtube真好。沒有它,許多好歌可能就此無緣再見。

上一次聽這首歌,已經是整整十年前:

當年,有線每晚都會播一套很舊的日本時代劇,叫「新必殺仕事人」,片尾曲便是這首「想い出の糸車」,字面意思大概是「記憶的紡車」吧,因為我見過有英文譯作The Spinning Wheel of Memory的。

如此冷門的音樂,如果沒有Youtube,到哪裏找?想買也買不到。

當時我正準備高考,每晚聽完這首歌,便會到圖書館(不是溫習,是看小說,順便也看女孩子,考試前減壓最重要)。現在再聽,當年的心情就像歌名的紡車一樣,一絲又一絲的轉出來。

記憶和絲有何相似?其一,剪不斷理還亂;其二,一輩子纏著你不放。

許多人,就是太喜歡執著過去,脖子讓萬縷千絲綁得緊緊的,活活纏死。

  1. Nice music. What a nice song title!

    This is quite poetic: “記憶和絲有何相似?其一,剪不斷理還亂;其二,一輩子纏著你不放。”

    1. Thanks. I’m very interested in metaphors about memory. In an earlier post, I wrote that memory is like soup. Remember Paul Auster’s Smoke – year 1 English class?
