英语语言学硕士研究生,全能型校园音乐人

看到左边这位长的很艺术家的同学了吗? 大家都叫他Jason。他很有才华!较早前,只是知道他有一副很酷的造型——基本上在本科生当中留一副闪闪亮、清清凉的光头的男生还非常非常少,而他便是那其中的一个。当然,他现在更酷了:光头还配上了一副大胡子。似乎摆明了要让每根胡须里都要往外放射艺术家气息。其实我本来还不知道他是这样的一位艺术人才。在他本科毕业的时候,他是我们学院英语专业保送的研究生之一。毕业论文的开题报告做得有模有样,俨然一未来的大学者。后来,我在无聊时也冒充文艺人到文学青年和艺术青年云集的豆瓣上去消磨时间。于是便发现这里还有曾经聆听过我讲课的一些有志青年。还悄莫声儿地把他们都加为好友了。这其中就有这位Jason Arikid。也就是在这个时候,我才知道原来Jason Arikid还是豆瓣上的一位音乐人。等到了今年,就看到了Jason Arikid连续推出了几首原创的新单曲。认真地听过几遍,真的很不错。令我颇感意外和骄傲(因为曾经发生过一段师生关系嘛。呵呵,别想歪啊)——没想到现在正在南开大学外国语学院攻读语言学硕士研究生的他居然能够编创、演唱、制作一手包揽。其创作不同于时下流行的恶搞、戏仿和家长里短的生活白描,对主题的把握有着他自己独到的眼光,颇具学院派的思想深度。比如这首There Must Be Something We Don’t Understand选取了世界和平这一主题,给人的感觉非同一般。

好吧, 不管你是路过的,还是专程前来的,请点击播放下面的音频吧。听听他的原创歌曲。听完了,也许你也会觉得有必要、也值得大家都去围观他……

以下是他的最新单曲《有些事儿我们不明白》的歌词:

The single, entitled (There Must Be) Something We Don’t Understand, laments the threat of nuclear warfare and also the deaths and poverty resulting from it. The song features an R&B style and a baritone voice.
On the cover of this single is the moon shot on a clear evening, by Jason himself.
The release date (June 21) was made according to the International Day of Peace, which is on September 21. Jason pointed out that people should not just think and talk about world peace merely on that day. “World peace should last for as long as we live and this time, I’ll bring world peace to your attention a season earlier than Sept. 21. Actually world peace is our constant concern and we can’t forget it at any time, whatever season.”

There Must Be Something We Don’t Understand

Written and Composed by Jason Arikid
Solo Vocal and Background Vocals: Jason Arikid
Produced by Jason Arikid

Father told me how to be a man
Though he’s been long so far away
I hold the belief up to today

In my dream I’ve always been a drifter
Looking at the world with good intentions
Somehow I don’t know why people hurt the others
To elbow their own way

There must be something we don’t understand
Like homes destroyed by the tanks
Why don’t you keep smiling for all your life
Rather than make mothers cry

There must be something we don’t understand
Like children not lent a hand
However hard it may be we gotta try
To reach never-never land

People’ve always taken it for granted
That they must be Master of the world
They hate to give love and peace a whirl

Deadly nuclear weapons rise to great heights
Someday I look up to the gloomy sky
I’m too dumb to say a word but utter a sigh
Cuz tomorrow never arrives

There must be something we don’t understand
Like homes destroyed by the tanks
Why don’t you keep smiling for all your life
Rather than make mothers cry

There must be something we don’t understand
Like children not lent a hand
However hard it may be we gotta try
To reach never-never land

Dear God
Take a look at the creatures on the globe
What they have done leads to a state of litte hope
Dear God
Please shed light on problems that let us mope
I see a garden
Come on men, women and children
Let’s lope

There must be something we don’t understand
Like why wars make you look grand
Why don’t you love everyone under the sun
Rather than attach a brand

There must be something we don’t understand
Like we can’t reap what we planned
When you realize love is inside all men
You’ll never draw a blank
