Single of the Day: Ben Haenow feat. Kelly Clarkson – Second Hand Heart

By - 2 years ago in Single of The Day

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Yang terfavorit dari dua ajang pencarian bakat beda region, Ben Haenow (The X Factor UK seri 11) dan Kelly Clarkson (the original American Idol) tergabung dalam duet ‘Second Hand Heart‘ yang dijadikan sebagai single andalan untuk album perdana Ben, “Ben Haenow”. Lagu ini merupakan karya Joe Kirkland dan Jason Dean yang sendirinya merupakan band penampil dengan aliran musik poprock, sementara proses produksinya dibantu oleh Jason Halbert, nama yang enggak asing bagi Kelly karena ia pernah dipercaya untuk menggodok album paling cadas dalam karinya, “My December”.

Itu mengapa Kelly langsung mengiyakan ajakan duet di lagu ini. Ia tak perlu repot untuk mencocokkan diri di dalamnya, karena secara alami lagu ini pas dengan gaya sang idola. “Lyrically and musically, it is right up my alley,” akunya. Sementara pembagian porsi antara Ben dan Kelly selanjutnya dinilai sebagai pemberi perspektif baru terhadap lagu yang aslinya ditulis sebagai lagu solo ini. Sebagai juara dari ajang pencarian bakat menyanyi, tak ada cela lagu di segi vokal. Bahkan saat bersenandung secara bersama, kedua vokalis yang masing-masing kuat karakternya ini menemukan keharmonisannya di teknik pecah suara.

Tapi membaca barisan liriknya, lagu ini tergolong yang miskin kata-kata. Bayangkan saja, apa yang dinyanyikan oleh Ben di verse-nya digunakan ulang untuk bagian Kelly. Selain itu, masih ada bagian bridge yang dibangun ulang dari kata-kata di chorus.

Belum lama dari sini, jebolan The X Factor UK lainnya, Olly Murs pernah menggelar duet dengan vokalis wanita asal Amerika lain, Demi Lovato dalam lagu ‘Up’. Format keduanya hampir sama, sehingga siapapun yang menyatakan suka pada ‘Up’, pasti gampang untuk menyukai ‘Second Hand Heart’ ini. Dua-duanya sama enak!

LYRIC
[Ben Haenow:]
The light of the morning finds you sleeping in my bed
And it’s not like the stories, it’s never like what they said
I know who you want me to be, but I’m just not there yet
Yeah, the broken road’s always been home and it’s so hard to forget

[Ben Haenow:]
Wait for me now
Will you wait for me now?

[Ben Haenow:]
I might think too much, drink too much, stay out too late
I know I’m just a fool, but I swear I can change
I can’t steal you the stars
But I can give you this second hand heart
All your friends think I’m hopeless, they don’t understand
That this imperfect love can start over again
It’s been broken apart
Will you still take my second hand heart?

[Kelly Clarkson:]
Yeah, the light of the morning finds you sleeping in my bed
And it’s not like the stories, it’s never like what they said
And I know who you want me to be, but I’m just not there yet
Yeah, the broken road’s always been home and it’s so hard to forget

[Both:]
I might think too much, drink too much, stay out too late
I know I’m just a fool, but I swear I can change
I can’t steal you the stars
But I can give you this second hand heart
All your friends think I’m hopeless, they don’t understand
That this imperfect love can start over again
It’s been broken apart
Will you still take my second hand heart?

[Both:]
If you let me show you, I could love you the same
And I can’t steal you the stars, but I can try every day
Oh, you know they’ll never tear us apart
And I’m just a fool, but I swear I can change
I can’t steal you the stars, but I can try every day
And you know, you’ve got my second hand heart

[Both:]
You might think too much, drink too much, stay out too late
I know you’ve been a fool, but I swear you can change
I can’t steal you the stars
But I can give you this second hand heart
All your friends think I’m hopeless, they don’t understand
That this imperfect love can start over again
It’s been broken apart
Will you still take my second hand heart?

[Both:]
And I’m just a fool, but I swear I can change
And I can’t steal you the stars, but I can try every day
Oh, you know, you’ve got my second hand heart
And I’m just a fool, but I swear I can change
And I can’t steal you the stars, but I can try every day
Oh, you know, you’ve got my second hand heart
