09. IS THIS THE WORLD WE CREATED? / QUEEN - THE WORKS (1984) 음악 (ALBUM)


마지막 곡은,  IS THIS THE WORLD WE CREATED? 인데, 
노래는 참 잔잔하고 좋은데, 신기하게도 이 곡을 라이브에서 연주한다는 것이 참 신기한데 말이지..
그럼에도 불구하고, 참 꾸준하고 라이브에서 연주를 한단 말이지.

이 곡에 대한 설명도 별도로 WIKI에 있다.

The song was played at every Queen concert from 1984 to 1986. It was part of the finale at Live Aid in 1985. The song is the shortest but one of the most famous songs on The Works.[1][2] It has more than 20,000 hits on Last.fm.[3]

1984부터 1986까지 EVERY QUEEN CONCERT에 연주가 되었다고 함. 
즉, WORKS 투어부터 MAGIC 투어까지이겠지. 
LIVE AID에서는 피날레를 장식. ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS SONGS 이다. 
라디오에서는 이만번 이상 틀어졌다는데...거참 좋은곡이네.


QUEEN - IS THIS WORLD WE CREATED?


ANDREA CORR & BRIAN MAY,
넬슨 만델라 90주년 생일파티

어쩌면, 넬슨 만델라 생일파티에 더 어울리는 곡일거 같다는 생각이 든다. 
가사가 굉장히 심오하거덩. 

"Is This the World We Created...?" was written in Munich after Mercury and May watched the news of poverty in Africa; Mercury wrote most of the lyrics and May wrote the chords and made small lyrical contributions.

아프리카의 기근에 대한 뉴스를 접하고 머큐리랑 메이가 뮌헨에서 작곡!


The song was recorded with an Ovation but live May used Roger Taylor's Gibson Chet Atkins CE nylon-stringed guitar. A piano was tracked at the recording sessions for this song, but ultimately not included in the final mix. Originally, a Mercury composition, "There Must Be More to Life Than This" (which was around since the Hot Space sessions and finally ended up on his solo album Mr. Bad Guy) was supposed to be the album's last track. Was written in the key of B minor,[4] but the recording sounds one semitone lower.

The song was performed at Live Aid as an encore, with additional instruments and arrangements in the last part; changes was present also in the vocal line. A month before their Live Aid appearance, "Is This the World We Created…?" was Queen's contribution to the multi-artist compilation Greenpeace – The Album.

이런 뉴스를 듣고, 이런 곡을 쓰는 그들의 능력이 그저 대단, 부럽 등등.


TUVA & MIA의 커버 곡인데, 아름답다.
그리고 청명하고 부드럽고, 감미롭다. 

듣다보니...정말 좋구나.

"Is This The World We Created?"

Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed
Take a look at all the suffering we breed
So many lonely faces scattered all around
Searching for what they need.

Is this the world we created?
What did we do it for?
Is this the world we invaded
Against the law?
So it seems in the end.
Is this what we're all living for today?
The world that we created.

You know that everyday a helpless child is born
Who needs some loving care inside a happy home
Somewhere a wealthy man is sitting on his throne
Waiting for life to go by.

Is this the world we created?
We made it on our own.
Is this the world we devastated
Right to the bone?

If there's a God in the sky looking down,
What can he think of what we've done
To the world that He created?

아프리카 기근을 보면서, 이것이 우리가 만든 세상인가? 라는 자조적인 질문을 하는데...
정말 멋지다.
