Single of the Day: Carrie Underwood – Church Bells

By - 1 year ago in Single of The Day

Ini yang diingankan para penggemar, Carrie Underwood merilis ‘Church Bells‘ sebagai single dari album studio terbarunya, “Storyteller”. Lagu ini lebih berasa “Carrie”-nya, karena beberapa kualitas yang terdapat di dalamnya antara lain musik upbeat country rock yang membuncah dan lirik yang menengadahkan kisah pelik mengenai relationship yang berakhir pada misteri kematian. Kedua kualitas itu didampingi oleh hook nan cacthy berupa pengulangan terhadap kata terakhir di baris-baris bagian chorus-nya. Ringing, ringing. Singing, singing.

Tambahan lagi, ‘Smoke Break’ dan ‘Heartbeat’ berada di bawah ‘Church Bells’ dalam memberikan dampak histeria kepada pendengar. Pun, lirik yang menarasikan mengenai pra hingga pasca sebuah hubungan dengan konflik kekerasan di tengahnya adalah ceritera yang kerap difavoritkan oleh penggemar. Alkisah, Jenny yang cantik namun secara finansial sangat tidak beruntung, dipersunting oleh pria kaya yang kerap melakukan tindak kekerasan fisik kepada. Singkat cerita, Jenny menyudahi KDRT yang terjadi dengan menghabisi nyawa sang suami. Semua itu tertera jelas, eksplisit tertulis oleh para penggagas lagu; Zach Crowell, Brett James, dan Hillary Lindsey.

Bagian yang paling menarik dari ‘Church Bells’ adalah video musiknya yang memperlihatkan gambaran bagaimana “Storyteller Tour: Stories in the Round” terjadi. Tentu, hiburan visual ini tidak menjadi pesan yang representatif terhadap lagu. Namun, lebih dari itu. Carrie memberi kesempatan kepada para fans-nya di seluruh dunia, terlebih yang belum sempat menyaksikan penampilan live, untuk ikut merasakan gegap gempita konser idola mereka. The arena, the crowd, the lights, the hydrolic system, the band, the stage, the wardrobe, and of course, the idol herself. It’s so much fun!

LYRIC
Jenny grew up wild, like a blackfoot daisy
Out in the shack with a blue tick hound
Broke as hell, but blessed with beauty
The kind that a rich man can’t turn down
She caught the eye of an oil man dancing
One summer night in a dime store dress
She had the looks, he had the mansion
And you can figure out the rest

It was all roses, dripping in diamonds
Sipping on champagne
She was all uptown, wearing that white gown
Taking his last name

She could hear those church bells ringing, ringing
And up in the loft, that whole choir singing, singing
Fold your hands and close your eyes
Yeah, it’s all gonna be alright
And just listen to the church bells ringing, ringing
Yeah, they’re ringing

Jenny was hosting Junior League parties
And having dinner at the country club
Everyone thought they were Ken and Barbie
But Ken was always getting way too drunk
Saturday night, after a few too many
He came home ready to fight
And all his money could never save Jenny
From the devil living in his eyes

It was all bruises, covered in makeup
Dark sunglasses
And that next morning, sitting in the back pew
Praying with the baptist

She could hear those church bells ringing, ringing
And up in the loft, that whole choir singing, singing
Fold your hands and close your eyes
Yeah, it’s all gonna be alright
You just listen to the church bells ringing, ringing
Yeah, they’re ringing

Jenny slipped something in his Tennessee whiskey
No law man was ever gonna find
And how he died is still a mystery
But he hit a woman for the very last time

She could hear those church bells ringing, ringing
Standing there in a black dress singing, singing
Fold your hands and close your eyes
Yeah, it’s all gonna be alright
And just listen to the church bells ringing, ringing
Yeah, they’re ringing

Love Film. Love Books. And Everything in Between.
