美國70年代的歌手Dewey Cox,是全美國的指標人物,他的歌曲風靡了當時整個美國,因此,美國人很愛Cox。

《永不止步:戴維.寇克斯的故事》這部電影就是在虛構 Cox 的傳奇故事,包含 Dewey 離譜的經歷,他睡過411個女人、結了3次婚,生了22個兒子,領養了14個小孩,還樂此不疲的去嘗試吸食各種人類所知的毒品,然後再輕而易舉的一一戒掉。另外,還在70年代為他量身打造的節目秀中,結識了貓王(Elvis Presley)、披頭四(Beatles)等人。

雖然這部影片長達整整二個小時,卻不知不覺的就把它看完了。因為劇中融合了許多好聽的音樂,每首音樂幾乎都是 Cox 的一小段人生的簡介。看到片尾時,當他演唱他人生中的 Final Masterpiece,「Beautiful Ride」那一幕,很感動,那首歌是他整個人生的一個 sum up,一路看下來,在片尾聽這首歌時,感觸真的會很多。旋律很美,歌詞很有意義,很喜歡其中的一句「And then in the end, it's family and friends.」,真的,走過人生的浮華,最後留著的就是 family and friends。雖然我還沒那麼老,人生也才剛開始,但就是覺得很有感覺。


Beautiful Ride

Now that I've lived
A lifetime's worth of days
Finally I see the folly of my ways
So listen when I sing of
The temptations of this world
Fancy cars and needles
Whiskey, flesh, and pearls

And then in the end,
it's family and friends
Loving yourself
But not only yourself
It's about the good walk
And the hard walk
And the young girls you've made cry
It's about make a little music
Every day till you die
It's a beautiful ride

Beautiful ride...Beautiful ride...
Beautiful...Beautiful ride...

As I stand on the precipice of death
My perspective is enormous
Every leaf, every cloud
I see the hands
Which have formed us
And some days all you got
Is a nighttime graveyard walk
And you whistle some sweet melody
To the ghosts down at the dock

Sing into your hand
Lead the marching band
Don't you let 'em fade
Your colors gray
'Cause when all is said and done
When youth is spent and burned
You'll see that it's all about
Music, Flowers, Babies
Sharin' the good times
Travelin's not just for business
Accepting your mortality
This is finally what I've learned

And then in the end,
it's family and friends
Loving yourself
But not only yourself
It's about the good walk
And the hard walk
And the young girls you've made cry
It's about make a little music
Every day till you die
It's a beautiful ride

Beautiful ride...Beautiful ride...
Beautiful...Beautiful ride...
