Mike Posner 在杜克大學大二那年喜歡上一個在他微積分課裡一位身穿Dior名牌,與袋棍球(lacrosse)球員交往的女孩。

他卻漸漸對這女孩的驕縱與目中無人感到 受不了,於是他用他唯一知道的方式反擊 - 就是在他宿舍房裡的錄音室裡閉關寫了這首 “Cooler Than Me”,暗諷這個看不起人的女孩。

今年22歲Mike Posner 說:『雖然這是在說一個真實的人物,但其實到處都有像她一樣的人。』

兩年後,“Cooler Than Me” 成了前十名的熱門單曲,而 Mike 的出道專輯-31 Minutes to Takeoff 將在8月10號發行,而且預測專輯一發行就會衝到榜上前幾名的位置。

曾是大學兄弟會一員的 Mike 從剛起步時就有洛杉磯電台的DJ - DJ Reflex 的看好與支持。DJ Reflex 說:「他就像是一個平易近人的賈斯汀。他不但吸引女孩們,他也是那種男生會想找他去喝啤酒的人。」

Mike Posner 在美國底特律城郊外長大,平時愛聽 Jay-Z,也喜歡自己做 mixtape,自己唱饒舌。

在他大學假期時他申請到位於紐約的嘻哈唱片公司當實習生,並藉此機會向幾家公司推薦自己的作品,但不幸地他都被拒絕了。雖然碰壁,Mike 把自己的幾首作品放在網路上,而且很快就引起大學生族群的注意。不久後,他收到了Jay-Z寄給他的email, 說想跟他聯絡,還要與他簽一份令人羨煞的合約。當時正在趕報告的 Mike 最後作業拿了個他大學生涯中的第一個 C,但也與 J Record 簽了這份合約。

五月時他為 Drake 在洛杉磯那場演唱會當暖場嘉賓,然後又回到北卡羅萊納拿他的畢業證書。畢業典禮時他又再度遇上了那位讓他寫下那首歌的 “Cooler Than Me” 小姐。

Mike 說:『她試著避開我。這次是她被拒絕了。』

今天聽到這首歌,覺得非常的有趣,把男孩的心聲寫得淋漓盡致啊!

故且用我的破英文來翻譯翻譯。

If I could write you a song to make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
I used up all of my tricks, I hope that you like this
But you probably won't, you think you're cooler than me

假如我能寫出一首歌,讓你墜入情網,我會將妳擁入懷中。
我耗盡所有的把戲,希望妳會喜歡,但妳大概會沒反應,You think your're cooler than me.

You got designer shades just to hide your face and
You wear 'em around like you're cooler than me
And you never say 「hey」 or remember my name
And it's probably 'cause you think you're cooler than me

妳用許多設計師的產品來蔽蔭妳真面目,穿上它們似乎 You're cooler than me.
妳從沒說聲「嘿」或者記住我的名字
可能是因為You think your're cooler than me.

You got your high brow shoes on your feet
And you wear 'em around like it ain't shit
But you don't know the way that you look
When your steps make that much noise

妳套上使人另眼相看的鞋子,似乎它們就不是坨Shit.
但當妳的腳步發出吵死人的噪音,妳不曉得該如何是好

Shh, see I got you all figured out
You need every one's eyes just to feel seen
Behind your make up nobody knows who you even are
Who do you think that you are?

噓,讓我來明白妳的瞭解
妳需要每個人關愛的眼神
在妳的濃妝背後,沒人知道妳是誰和妳自以為的那個誰

You got your high brow switch in your walk
And you don't even look when you pass by
But you don't know the way that you look
When your steps make that much noise

妳戴上使人另眼相看的假髮散步,當妳擦肩而過時,妳不曉得該注視哪裡
但當妳的腳步發出吵死人的噪音,妳不曉得該如何是好

Now don't you dare act like you know don't know
Know what's up? 'Cause your nose is up
I'm approaching up, pshh, yup
Like I can't give you winter in the summer
A summer in the winter, Miami in December

現在你還敢裝作你太傻、太天真嗎
不曉得發生什麼事?因為你還在不肯面對現實
我正要來探討這回事
就像我無法給你在夏天裡的冬天,在寒冬的炙夏,十二月中的Miami

Trying to look bored in them Diors, she probably is
Was acting shallow 'til she found out how deep that my pockets is
Mrs. pre-Madonna, this is your reminder
That I think you fine, but I'm finer

她可能試著冷眼看待那些名牌,假裝膚淺
直到她發現我的口袋有多深
前瑪當娜太太,是你最好的警鐘
我覺得妳不錯,但我更不賴

'Cause it sure seems
('Cause it sure seems)
You got no doubt
(That you got no doubt)
But we all see
(We all see)
You got your head in the clouds
(Clouds)

因為它像你從來沒懷疑過的那般真實
但我們全都知道
你只成天在作你的大頭白日夢

If I coul write you a song to make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
(Under my arm)
I used up all of my tricks, I hope that you like this
