American Life~
一張Madonna最自省最真誠的一張專輯~

American Life~
一支反戰諷刺並調侃布希總統到極致的Music Video~

一場以軍事為主題的時裝秀~
資本主義的極致對上殘酷的戰爭本質~
帶著手榴彈項鍊及一長串彈鍊的男模們~
戴著防毒面具及一條斷腿的女模們~
其中穿插著中東小孩的走秀~
襯著廁所隔間牆上的"Protect Me"~
反戰氛圍昭然若揭~

開車衝進時裝秀舞台後跳上車頂打開水柱噴向台下的觀眾及攝影者~
畫面再用蒙太奇手法將爆炸及飛彈攻擊剪進Madonna的恣意妄為的笑容~
接著油門一踩往觀眾席輾過去順帶丟出腰間的手榴彈~
最後卻被布希得意的接下點起煙來~
諷刺的平淡卻辛辣~

這支MV只有在單曲剛上市時打了幾次隨即因爭議性過大而又成了Madonna停播或禁播的MV之一~
因為在拍的時候布希尚未出兵但正式播放時美國已經出兵了~
所以大家後來不管怎麼看都只看得到萬國旗的第二版本~

不過~
娜姊更是帥氣的把中華民國的國旗放進了Music Video之中!!!
讚啊!!!

當然在這一連串的Madonna特輯中~
就是要讓大家看到什麼都敢做的Madonna~
所以請好好享受American Life初版Music Video!!!

Madonna ~ American Life

Do I have to change my name?
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I gonna be a star?

I tried to be a boy
I tried to be a girl
I tried to be a mess
I tried to be the best
I guess I did it wrong
That's why I wrote this song
This type of modern life
Is it for me?
This type of modern life
Is it for free?

So I went into a bar
Looking for sympathy
A little company
I tried to find a friend
It's more easily said
It's always been the same
This type of modern life
Is not for me
This type of modern life
Is not for free

American life
I live the American dream
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream

I tried to stay ahead
I tried to stay on top
I tried to play the part
But some how I forgot
Just what I did it for
And why I wanted more
This type of modern life
Is it for me?
This type of modern life
Is it for free?

Do I have to change my name?
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I gonna be a star?

American life
I live the American dream
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream

I tried to be a boy
Tried to be a girl
Tried to be a mess
Tried to be the best
Tried to find a friend
Tried to stay ahead
I tried to stay on top
Fuck it

Do I have to change my name?
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I gonna be a star?

Ahh, fuck it
Ahh, fuck it
Ahh, fuck it
Ahh, fuck it

I'm drinking a Soy latte
I get a double shot?
It goes right through my body
And you know I'm satisfied
I drive my Mini Cooper
And I'm feeling super-dooper
Yo they tell I'm a trooper
And you know I'm satisfied
I do yoga and palates
And the room is full of hotties
So I'm checking out the bodies
And you know I'm satisfied
I'm digging on the isotopes
This metaphysic's shit is dope
And if all this can give me hope
You know I'm satisfied
I got a lawyer and a manager
An agent and a chef
Three nannies, an assistant
And a driver and a jet
A trainer and a butler
And a bodyguard or five
A gardener and a stylist
Do you think I'm satisfied?
I'd like to express my extreme point of view
I'm not Christian and I'm not a Jew
I'm just living out the American dream
And I just realised that nothing
Is what it seems

Do I have to change my name?
Am I gonna be a star?
Do I have to change my name?
Am I gonna be a star?
Do I have to change my name?
