それから、"Johnny Cash"についてですが、こちらのインタビューで詳しい話をしています。

www.thesun.co.uk

 

“It came from the line ‘hold me like Johnny Cash’ which came after a break-up with someone. I’m saying how they make me a better person and I don’t want this to end, just hold me like Johnny Cash.

“This came from when my mother was dying of breast cancer in Los Angeles. I was living at (producer) Rick Rubin’s house at the same time Johnny Cash and his wife June were living there because Johnny was making the (1994) American Recordings album with Rick.

“One day I’d left the hospital to go home and shower but in that time my mum passed. I got the phone call at the house. I am standing at the bottom of the stairs, distraught, as Johnny and June were coming down the stairs.

“I was crushed and confused and they grabbed me and said really sweet things about my mum and life. They spent a good ten minutes with me, giving me this support.

“My mum had just passed, there was not a family person in sight, so God chooses this moment for me. The moment my mom dies, I am alone, but who comes and walks in the scene? Johnny Cash and June Carter. It was so surreal and bizarre.

“So basically, as the chorus kept writing itself. I am basically asking this person to comfort me in this deep way that I haven’t felt since the day Johnny Cash held me. A very roundabout way of telling this story but that’s what it came from.”

 

レニーは1995年の末(記事には1994と書いてありますが)、プロデューサーのリック・ルービンの家に住んでいて、そこからお母さんが入院している病院に通っていたんですが、シャワーを浴びようと病院から帰って来た時に亡くなってしまったんだそうです。電話で知らせを受けて茫然としていたところ、ちょうどリック・ルービンの家に来ていたジョニー・キャッシュとジューン・カーターがレニーを慰めてくれたそうです。 

でも、"Johnny Cash"は基本的にはラブ・ソングで、「ジョニー・キャッシュがしてくれたみたいに俺を慰めてくれ」という感じの歌みたいですよ。

 

それから、"Low"についても話しています。

“When I was writing Low, I felt it was a song that would really suit Michael — when I was recording it I just kept hearing his voice.

“I had these other tracks that we’d done and so I put his vocal on to Low from those tracks. It was just a really nice exclamation after I sing the verse, on the outro, he just kept backing me.

“It’s really nice and not over the top. A lot of people didn’t realise it was him, and thought I was trying to sound like Michael there. But it really is him.”

"Low"はマイケルとレコーディングをした時にすでにできていたわけではないんですかね? でも、"I had these other tracks"と言っているので、やっぱり"Another Day"以外にも一緒にレコーディングしたトラックがあるんだろうと思います。

 

その他、せっかく色々いい話をしていたのに、最後になぜかニコール・キッドマンの話が出てくるところが、「やっぱりSun……」って感じですが(笑) 2人の婚約話は、でっち上げの可能性が高いです。詳しくはこちらのエントリーに書いてあります。
