    「メリー・クリスマス ミスターローレンス」

    ラジオから映画『戦場のメリークリスマス』のメイン・テーマ「Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence(戦場のメリークリスマス)」のピアノが聞こえてきて、おっと戦メリだと思っているとラップがかぶってきて びっくり。そうです。坂本龍一の戦メリがサンプリングで使われていたんですね。この曲は、アメリカのシンガーソングライター、マイク・ポズナーの新曲「Slow It Down」でした。9月にミュージックビデオをYouTubeで公開・配信して話題になりました。

    ということで、クリスマスも近づいてきた今週のピック・アップは、この曲です。

    Slow It Down Mike Posner 2019

    Alright
    Right now

    I’m in prison and I think I built my own cell
    Prophets speak softly, homie,  they don’t yell
    Only those that hear my music know my lower depths
    The doer does, the knower rests
    The scholar learns, the sage forgets
    If I could wrap my head around it, then I might get a shot
    I get what I think about whether I like it or not
    When things go wrong, life doesn’t stop
    I need to quit pollutin’ my mind with sex and violence
    The secret that I’m seekin’ was left in silence
    And my microphone is pointin’ God’s finger
    I’m a saint disguised as a pop singer
    Here’s a fun fact (fun fact)
    Most people leave their potential untapped
    There will be more than camping gear to unpack
    Sometimes, you gotta go there just to come back

    Slow it down, I still got the feelin’, baby
    Slow it down, no more runnin’ around
    I say slow it down, I still got the feelin’, baby
    Slow it down, no more runnin’ around

    My foot hurts, I didn’t get sleep
    My dad died, my horoscope ain’t in sync
    I’m misunderstood and Twitter is ruthless
    Uh oh, I think my problems are excuses
    For not bein’ who I know I am
    I’m thirty-one, there’s no one left to hold my hand
    Though I believe I got someone watchin’ over me
    I believe I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be
    I believe that even when the road is bleak
    That these obstacles were set up just for me
    And family matters, I’m on some Urkel shit
    Posner on a Primo beat, this some full circle shit
    I believe no matter how high the hurdles get
    I can flip this whole thing into an internal win
    Life ain’t meant to be a heavy thing
    Met Ram Dass, he told me, “Just love everything”
    Fall in Michigan, there’s wisdom in my loose leaf
    For the first time, I feel like the true me

    Slow it down, I still got the feelin’, baby
    Slow it down, no more runnin’ around
    I say slow it down, I still got the feelin’, baby
    Slow it down, no more runnin’ around

    Some days, I can’t get out of bed
    Crippled by negative thoughts inside my head
    Like why do I always stop before my limits?
    And why am I only good at lovin’ people from a distance?
    Why am I so vain? Obsessed with fitness?
    Why are the only people I’m around my assistants?
    But wait, the last time I felt this way
    I bucked up, kept goin’ and got my shit straight
    Diddy told me go with my heart
    So my focus is art, not where I go on the chart
    The divine light in me loves to glow in the dark
    If my life was a movie, we’d be approachin’ the part
    Where the hero wins and learns don’t
    Chase what you already got and returns home
    Those who say don’t know, those who know don’t say
    I’m done walking with the herd, it’s time I go my own way

    Slow it down, I still got the feelin’, baby
    Slow it down, no more runnin’ around
    I say slow it down, yeah, I still got the feelin’, baby
    Slow it down, no more runnin’ around, yeah

    I Took A Pill In Ibiza (Seeb Remix) Mike Posner/マイク・ポズナー

    I Took A Pill In Ibiza  Mike Posner 2016

    I took a pill in Ibiza
    To show Avicii I was cool
    And when I finally got sober, felt ten years older
    But fuck it, it was something to do
    I’m living out in LA
    I drive a sports car just to prove
    I’m a real big baller ‘cause I made a million dollars
    And I spend it on girls and shoes
    But you don’t wanna be high like me
    Never really knowing why like me
    You don’t ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
    You don’t wanna ride the bus like this
    Never knowing who to trust like this
    You don’t wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
    Stuck up on that stage singing
    All I know are sad songs, sad songs
    Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs
    I’m just a singer who already blew his shot
    I get along with old timers
    ‘Cause my name’s a reminder of a pop song people forgot
    And I can’t keep a girl, no
    ‘Cause as soon as the sun comes up
    I cut ‘em all loose and work’s my excuse
    But the truth is I can’t open up
    Now you don’t wanna be high like me
    Never really knowing why like me
    You don’t ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
    You don’t wanna ride the bus like this
    Never knowing who to trust like this
    You don’t wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
    Stuck up on that stage singing
    All I know are sad songs, sad songs
    Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs
    I took a plane to my home town
    I brought my pride and my guitar
    All my friends are all gone but there’s manicured lawns
    And the people still think I’m a star
    I walked around downtown
    I met some fans on Lafayette
    They said tell us how to make it ‘cause we’re getting real impatient
    So I looked ‘em in the eye and said
    You don’t wanna be high like me
    Never really knowing why like me
    You don’t ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
    You don’t wanna ride the bus like this
    Never knowing who to trust like this
    You don’t wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
    Stuck up on that stage singing
    All I know are sad songs, sad songs
    Darling, all that I know are sad songs, sad songs
