Yesterday I told you that I have been experiencing this eargamic sensation after listening to Jay Chou's The Era! How about you? Are you enjoying his songs too? Today I am going to share with you my favourite song in Jay Chou's The Era which is Superman Can't Fly (超人不能飞). This gotta be one of his best song ever. I am so in love with it. Again to those uninitiated, Superman Can't Fly will just be another cheesy song with bad enunciation from Jay Chou. I won't blame you for your "ignorance" though. :p
Jay Chou with his Bat Mobile in Superman Can't Fly!
At first...me, myself thought that Superman Can't Fly is just another normal song which talks about superhero. If you were to watch just the MTV alone, you will thing that the whole song is about the man behind than mask. I am guilty of this too. Then I realized how shallow I am for not being able to read between the lines. Little did I know that Superman Can't Fly is actually a confession from Jay Chou. Can't help it because I didn't bother to look at the lyrics previously.
The Superman in the MTV!
I scrutinized every single words, every lines in Superman Can't Fly. I am flabbergasted by the intricacy of the song. Yes, the song is catchy and infectious but at the same time it open up Jay's heart about how he feels about a lot of thing revolving around him. It is like his very personal confession. Through Superman Can't Fly, Jay Chou divulges his rage, his dilemma, his sorrow...everything that is bothering him in the glitzy entertainment world! It goes to show how mortal he is. And how he yearns to be a normal person just like anyone of us.
Now let's watch the highly entertaining MTV. The MTV has its very own story. But at the same time don't forget to go through the lyrics to fully understand the meaning behind the song ok. :)
Superman Can't Fly Lyrics
媽媽說很多事別太計較 只是使命感找到了我 我睡不著
如果說罵人要有點技巧 我會加點旋律你會覺得 超屌
再次俯瞰這個世界 會讓我覺得好一些 oh
What say you? Do you enjoy this song? I am loving it because I can get to know the other side of Jay Chou. Now let's talk about that MTV shall we? Do you agree that this whole MTV has almost nothing to do with the song? But it does have one similarity. The whole MTV basically wanna tell us that no matter how perfectly strong or determined someone might appear to you, they still have their own flaw. They are still human just like us. And that's why sometimes...Superman Can't Fly!
P.S.: Anyone who wants the lyrics to be translated? Do tell me and I might translate Superman Can't Fly for you guys. Next week perhaps? :p
