前一陣子,團員 Jesy Nelson (左二)因身體不適而缺席了一些表演活動,而在專輯剛發出不久後,她們的公關人員在 Twitter 上聲明,表示 Jesy Nelson 因為私人健康原因將延長離團的時間,讓許多粉絲在慶祝新專輯發行的同時,開始擔心 Little Mix 未來的音樂活動會受到影響,甚至憂懼她們會面臨解散的危機。

Little Mix “Sweet Melody”|歌曲介紹

〈Sweet Melody〉是一首具有故事性的歌曲,以敘事的手法從女孩的觀點出發。故事中可知女孩的前任曾經是個對她唱著甜美旋律的音樂人,然而男孩用了他的音樂才能和魅力欺騙了女孩;雖然表面上看起來他是愛著女孩的,欺騙與劈腿事實擺在眼前⋯⋯最終,這段關係最終還是破裂了。

從歌詞的第一段:「he was in a band/wrote love songs about me/I wasn’t crazy ’bout the words/but the melodies were sweet」(他在樂團裡,寫了關於我的情歌/我並沒有因為那些詞而感到瘋狂,但那旋律很美)可以了解男孩是樂團的一員,而他寫了關於女孩的情歌;即便當時她仍不是他的忠實粉絲,她卻承認那首歌的旋律十分甜美。

下一段歌詞描述道:「Every time we’d go dancing/I’d see his straying eyes/Gave him too many chances」(每次我和他去跳舞時 /他的眼神總是在遊蕩)。當他們開始約會後,每次去跳舞時,男孩的眼神總是飄忽不定,女孩也漸漸發現男孩的注意力並不在自己身上。女孩給了他很多次機會,然而「he’d start acting up/and I’d be on my way to leave」(他開始搗亂 ,然而我也在離開的路上)——男孩最後還是搞砸了,女孩也決定要離開這段不健康的關係。不過,就像許多令人盲目的愛情般:「But I stopped in my tracks, when I heard this melody」(但當我聽到這段旋律,我無法自拔地在離開他的途中停下)。女孩無法拒絕男孩的魅力,又被他甜美的旋律而困住。

副歌齊唱的部分描述了男孩甜美的情歌是如何讓女孩著迷,但這旋律只能暫時緩下這段關係。到頭來,「But the day he did me wrong/The song couldn’t go on and on」(但他傷害我的那天/那首歌就無法再繼續),女孩還是要向前邁出自己的一步,果斷地做出離開的選擇,用決心讓那首迷惑她的甜美情歌停止。

「He would lie, he would cheat」(他會騙我,他會劈腿)在下一段歌詞中,女方揭示了男方的不忠。她承認他用他的歌曲和甜言蜜語來操縱她:「I was just his tiny dancer/he had control of my feet/Yes, when he came along/That’s when I lost a groove」(我只是他的小舞者 ,他可以控制我的雙腳/當他獨自來,我便會失去律動感)。當女方意識到自己在這段關係中受到多少操縱時,就對他做出了具體的決定,而現在「There was no song in the world to sing along or make me move」(世界上沒有一首歌歌能讓我跟著唱或讓我跟著動)世界上再也沒有任何甜美的旋律可以挽救這段關係。
