Make it Better, me…

Hey Jude – The Beatles

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Hey Jude, don’t be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better

And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain
Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Hey Jude, don’t let me down
You have found her, now go and get her
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin
You’re waiting for someone to perform with
And don’t you know that it’s just you, hey Jude, you’ll do
The movement you need is on your shoulder
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah yeah

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her under your skin
Then you’ll begin to make it
Better better better better better better, oh

*mulai lagi ber-beatles mania.. oh i love you John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.. belom ada yg sejawara Beatles yah.. pantes so memorable dan long lasting lagunyahh.. Mungkin sampe zaman Runa gede.. I’ll introdoce her their song

Let It be

Malem2 kemaren lagi ngerasa sedih ey…

Entah karena suatu “perbincangan”, suatu “asumsi”, dan campuran perasaan feeling lonely dan masih sedikit dongkol sama suatu oknum. Untungnya.. saya masih punya Allah :), kebetulan saya belum selesai ngaji sejuz, ya udah saya buka Al-Qur’an dan baca terjemahnya, Subhanallah Allah memang selalu punya jawabannya..

“Jadilah pemaaf dan suruhlah orang mengerjakan yang makruf, serta jangan pedulikan orang-orang yang bodoh” (Al-A’raf 199)

Terus liat di sebelah Runa tidur nyenyak, ilang deh semua perasaan itu.. just let it be, cukup Allah aja yang tahu dan mengerti

Emang bener lirik-nya Let It be-nya The Beatles, cuma sedikit diubah nih yaa

“Let It Be”

When I find myself in times of trouble
Allah SWT comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
He is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Yeah there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine on until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of Al Qur’an,
Allah SWT comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Yeah let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be
Oh there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah let it be
Oh there will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Ah let it be, yeah let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

*maap om McCartney, saya sangeunahna ngarubah lirik ente.. tapi ngeunaheun ey lagunya…

just sing.. let it bee.. let it bee.. there will be an answer, let it be, let it be..

Paradise – Coldplay

“Paradise”
Coldplay

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep
Dreamed of para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Every time she closed her eyes
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
And the bullets catch in her teeth

Life goes on
It gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear, a waterfall
In the night, the stormy night
She closed her eyes
In the night, the stormy night
Away she’d fly.

And dreamed of para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh

She dreamed of para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.

La la la La
La la la

So lying underneath those stormy skies.
She said oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.
I know the sun must set to rise.

This could be para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
This could be para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.

This could be para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Could be para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.

This could be para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Could be para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.

Parodi Lagu Padhayangan Project

Sesungguhnya saya kangen lagu-lagu parodi gubahan P Project atau dikenal juga dengan Padhayangan Project. Seniman kreatif asal Bandung yang beranggotakan Kang Daan, Kang Deni, Kang Joe, Kang Izhur Muchtar, Kang Wawan, Kang Iyang, dan Kang Denden ini bener-bener kocak. Saya inget dulu saya dan kakak saya sering muter lagu ini di mobil setiap pergi jalan-jalan sama Papa dan Mama (si bungsu belom lahir, maap dek, kamu jadi ga tau apa rasanya bodor ala mereka).

Mereka banyak mlesetin lagu-lagu beken pada jamannya, taun 90an. Malah saya lebih tau lagu mereka daripada lagu aslinya *ngerusak karya orang emang* haha.. Tapi mereka ngubah lagu itu cuma liriknya aja, liriknya aja udah kocak. Biasanya mereka nyamain rima dari lirik lagu asli ke plesetannya. Kreatif lho itu.

Salah satu lagu plesetan mereka adalah “Antrilah di Loket” yang diplesetin dari lagu “I Can Love you Like That”

I Can Love you Like That (John Michael Montgomery/ All 4 one)

They read you Cinderella
You hoped it would come true
That one day your Prince Charming would come rescue you
You like romantic movies
You never will forget
The way you felt when Romeo kissed Juliet
All this time that you’ve been waiting
You don’t have to wait no more

I can love you like that, I would make you my world
Move heaven and earth, if you were my girl
I will give you my heart, be all that you need
Show you you’re everything that’s precious to me
If you give me a chance
I can love you like that

I never make a promise, I don’t intend to keep
So when I say forever, forevers what I mean
I’m no Casanova, but I swear this much is true
I’ll be holdin’ nothin’ back, when it comes to you
You dream of love that’s everlasting
Well, baby open up your eyes

I can love you like that, I would make you my world
Move heaven and earth, if you were my girl
I will give you my heart, be all that you need
Show you you’re everything that’s precious to me
If you give me a chance
I can love you like that

If you want tenderness, I’ve got tenderness
(Tenderness, tenderness)
And see through, to the heart of you
If you want a man who understands
(Want a man)
You don’t have to look very far
I can love you

I can, I can love you like that, I would make you my world
Move heaven and earth, if you were my girl
I will give you my heart, be all that you need
Show you you’re everything that’s precious to me

I can love you like that, I would make you my world
Move heaven and earth, if you were my girl

Dan ini lirik lagu “Antrilah di Loket”

Di stasiun kereta banyak calon penumpang
Yang berdesakan takut nggak kebagian
Karcispun hampir habis
Calon penumpang kaget
Saling dorong, saling himpit, saling gencet
Hati-hati jangan panik
Suasana bisa kacau oh oh

Antrilah di loket untuk beli tiket
Siapkan dompet awas ada copet
Antrilah semua biar disiplin
Walau ’pala pusing
Betis varises asal dapat tiket
Antrilah di loket

Duduk di kelas bisnis dekat seorang gadis
Datang pria berkumis menanyakan karcis
Dia lalu bertanya :

Marilah berbaris baris yang manis
Cobalah turut budaya semut
Satu persatu berjejer berurut
Tuhan sayang orang sabar

Dan didorong rasa kangen itu, akhirnya saya mendonlot lagu-lagu mereka, pluuus.. lagu-lagu aslinya juga. Biar saya bisa merasakan bodornya lagu mereka dan bagusnya lagu aslinya.

Entah kenapa kemudian selarik kalimat dari lirik lagu Antrilah di Loket ini terngiang-ngiang terus di telinga saya.

Larik kalimat yang mana?

Iya betul yang itu.

Kok tau.

“Tuhan sayang orang sabar”

Our House

Our House
(Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young)

I’ll light the fire
You put the flowers in the vase
That you bought today

Staring at the fire
For hours and hours
While I listen to you
Play your love songs
All night long for me
Only for me

Come to me now
And rest your head for just five minutes
Everything is good
Such a cozy room
The windows are illuminated
By the sunshine through them
Fiery gems for you
Only for you

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
‘Cause of you
And our la,la,la, la,la, la, la, la, la, la, la…..

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
‘Cause of you
And Our

I’ll light the fire
And you place the flowers in the jar
That you bought today

Ini salah satu lagu yang diputer di episode HIMYM.  Suatu kali Ted Mosby secara impulsif membeli sebuah rumah bekas dengan harga murah, tanpa pikir panjang. Rumah tersebut ternyata udah rusak sana sini, ada tikusnya (atau sejenis tikus) lagi.. Sahabat-sahabatnya menyesali tindakannya yang dianggap terburu-buru. Tapi sekitar 10 tahun kemudian, rumahnya menjadi cantik. Dihuni oleh ia, istri, dan 2 orang anaknya.

May it happens to me too.. Build a house as our home.. For our children later… Entah apa di Jakarta bisa dapet rumah yang mas beradab (lingkungannya). Masih berharap di Bandung.. Well.. hope for the best 🙂

Somewhere Beyond the Sea

Somewhere Beyond the Sea

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waitin’ for me
My lover stands on golden sand
And watches the ships that go sailin’

Somewhere beyond the sea
She’s there watchin’ for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms I’d go sailin’

It’s far beyond the star
It’s near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon

We’ll meet beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we’ll be, beyond the sea
And never again I’ll go sailin’

I know beyond a doubt,
My heart will lead me there soon
We’ll meet, I know we’ll meet
Beyond the shore
We’ll kiss just as before
Happy we’ll be, beyond the sea
And never again I’ll go sailin’

(No more sailin’)
(So long sailin’)
(Byebye sailin’)

Sebenernya ini lagu lambreh banget, sampe gatau yang mempopulerkannya siapa, kalo ga salah  penyanyi swing dan aktor asal Amrik Frank Sinatra. Tapi Bobby Darin juga pernah nyanyiin ini, ada Barry Manillow, Robbie Williams, Michael Buble. Pertama saya denger bahkan dari Damian McGinty, finalis Glee Project. Suaranya emang tipe berat-berat gitu *baja kali berat*, bariton maksudnya kali yah..

Lagunya emang swing bgt.. Liriknya juga swing, hahaha.. Ayo yang lagi LDR angkat tangannyaaa…

Blackbird

-Blackbird-

by The Beatles

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird fly blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Pertama denger lagu ini (lagi-lagi) dari serial Glee.. di mana yang nyanyiinya Kurt Hummel, salah satu karakter favorit saya di Glee (slaen Mike Chang dan Artie). Kemudian lagu ini juga dinyanyikan oleh Cameron Mitchell di Glee Project

Ketika denger lagu ini pertama kali, kuping saya langsung ngeh dan jatuh cinta sama laguna.. ternyata.. ooohh ini lagu keluaran The Beatles toohh.. panteess.. Siapa yang ga kenal The Beatles, band beraliran rock dari Inggris yang digawangi John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, dan George Harrison. Band ini memang terkenal di zaman mama en papa daku masih muda dan gaul (sekitar th 60an) dengan celana cutbray lambai-lambai, rambut ngembang, dan kacamata belalang, hihihi…

Akhirnya saya donlot lagu ini dalam 3 versi: versinya Kurt, Cameron, dan tentu saja The Beatles. Makna dari lagu ini, sebenernya.. entah yaa.. haha.. saya ga termasuk orang yang puitis-puitis amat untuk menyelami maknanya.

Tapi saya rasa ini cukup menggambarkan apa yang saya pikirkan.. “All your life.. You were only waiting for this moment to arise.”

Inilah The Beatles. well,, If I lived in their years, I might be one of their big fans.. Karena sampai sekarang lagu-lagunya The Beatles masih sangat kental untuk telinga anak zaman sekarang.. bagaimana dengan zaman anak-anak aku ntar ya? We’ll see…
