my great singer-songwriter, jane siberry [2]

i had ragged years back between 1994 and 2000, expelled from home, moving around, fooling around, lousy relationship, somtimes living hand to mouth.


i even left 'bound by the beauty' to some girl that i can hardly remember her name (along with some lang's CDs and that rolling stone issue), and had been missing 'hockey', 'valley' and 'everything reminds me of my dog' a lot for years.
all those years, thanks for songs of 'when i was a boy' to let me feel some sort of connection, while i was available to feel, to the simple, beautiful, intelligent, trusted, and worthy-to-fight-for world.

it's until the late 2000 that i finally found a stable stand, a trustful lover, had time and resource to reach out, and learnt my jane siberry had hold her own SHEEBA record, and had issued seven records since 1995, which i can't find any in taiwan. anyway, thanks to the internet that i could at least keep the latest information of this great performer, and to know there was even a "censored-hockey" ...
in 2002, good for FNAC, accepted my order for 'the jane siberry anthology'. in this 2 CD set, there are more touching songs both in her early and her post-mainstream career.

here i choose my favorite 6 songs from her earlys, which by my definition, is pre-bound-by-the-beauty years (1981~1987).

- in the blue night (from the debut, jane siberry)

- mimi on the beach (from the 2nd, no borders here), there's a clip found on youtube
some said this song had been an underground hit then, it's really a interesting song, i had my own vision of it without this video. jane wrote the 'mimi speaks' as the sequal to this "mimi get up, get up" thing during 1999, that's another worth-having one.

- you don't need (from the 2nd, no borders here), there's a full version video on youtube

i have a story for this song, years before, one of my friends who cannot understand english well came to me, and i was playing the anthology CD, once this 'you don't need' going, she asked me to replay it for several times, and cried over it. i was stunned that the emotion just in music and in voice, without understanding what was told, could be so powerful and penetrating. because i knew my friend was in a tough time with her lover, and the situation was just like the song described...

- the taxi ride (from the 3rd, the speckless sky), this one was in the end of the 2006 movie 'gymnast'


- the walking, and constantly (from the 4th, the walking)

- the lobby (from the 4th, the walking) , from this one, you could see she was not only singing but performing, she was not only a storyteller, but becoming a devoted artist...
