記得第一次聽到『Intuition』時,還以為是哪個青春偶像小甜甜接班人的新歌,充滿拉丁韻味的動感舞曲,讓一向走清新脫俗的民謠女歌手Jewel珠兒整個人脫胎換骨,這樣的驟然轉變留給廣大歌迷們無限的問號,「Jewel怎麼了?」

或許是從上張專輯的單曲『Serve The Ego』混音版意外地橫掃各大舞廳,聲勢凌人奪下Billboard的dance chart冠軍後,這回Jewel食髓知味,大改以往性靈女子的詩人歌手形象,推出2003年最新專輯『0304』,之所以名為『0304』乃Jewel為期許2003及2004年自我突破及蛻變的緣故,專輯找來成功打造Shakira等歌手的拉丁籍的製作人Lester Mendez來擔綱專輯製作,整張專輯曲風朝流行多元化發展,企圖在話題性、與銷售量上搏得佳績。

這樣的轉變,究竟歌迷們能不能接受?我看了看一些國外網站歌迷的回應,有的是無法接受而大發雷霆(誇飾法),但畢竟他們的心態可想而知啦,想想若哪天陳綺貞拋下吉他,開始改唱蔡依林的舞曲、大跳『看我七十二變』,大概會有八成歌迷選擇跳樓自盡抗議。然而值得欣慰的是,大部分的歌迷都支持Jewel如此的大變革,換個角度看,歌手勇於跳脫制式的框框反而帶來煥然一新,其實仔細看了一下『Intuition』的詞曲仍然是出自Jewel本身創作的,曲風雖然是流行走向,但歌詞仍保留著珠兒她獨特的詩人氣息,也算是守成創新兼容並蓄吧!不如先來偷瞄一下她的歌詞:

『Jewel - Intuition』

I'm just a simple girl
In a high tech digital world
I really try to understand
All the powers that rule this land
They say Miss J's big butt is boss
Kate Moss can't find a job
In a world of post modern fad
What was good now is bad

It's not hard to understand
Just follow this simple plan

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

You look at me
but you're not quite sure
Am I it or could you get more?
You learn cool from magazines
You learn love from Charlie Sheen

If you want me let me know
I promise I won't say no

You got something that you want me to sell
Sell your sin. Just cash in.
You got something that you want me to tell
You'll love me. Wait and see.

If you want me
Don't play games
I promise
it won't be in vain
Uh-uh-uh

最後再順便推薦一下她的MV,想要看Jewel首度下海與舞群載歌載舞的人可別錯過了,尤其Jewel在音樂錄影帶中嘗試多款炫亮造型,再搭上導演的幽默創意,在每個場景的最後定格畫面、加上標語,呈現出各種廣告、雜誌般的感覺,MV尾端又找來消防員一同在街上大演噴水秀,這段Jewel風情萬種(壹周刊或蘋果日報會用的詞彙應該是:「兩點激凸」)的清涼惹火秀,絕對顛覆你對珠兒的既定印象,保證驚艷不已,有興趣的人可以去MTV或Rollingstone的網站搜尋一下!
