Single of The Day: Keane ft.K’Naan – Stop For A Minute 

PhotobucketOne of my favourite band, Keane akan merilis EP mereka Night Train yang akan dirilis pada April ini.Ada 8 lagu yang masuk di album ini dan mereka memajukan single pertamanya “Stop For A Minute” featuring rapper yang jadi bahan pembicaraan di seluruh dunia berkat singlenya “Wavin’ Flag” menjadi lagu official untuk piala dunia 2010 nanti yaitu K’Naan.

Menurut frontman Keane sendiri Tom Chaplin mereka tidak akan mengulang piano rock sound lagi dan menurutnya tiap rekaman yang mereka buat pasti nuansanya berbeda dengan satu sama lain. Dan ini terbukti di single pertama mereka “Stop For A Minute”.

Beat lagu ini sedikit menyentuh beat musik R&B, kurang lebih beatnya sama seperti Beyonce yang Halo. Suara Tom Chaplin dan K’Naan sama-sama baik disini. Bagian reffnya juga dibawakan dengan cukup bagus. Meskipun pertama kali mendengar track ini begitu asing di telinga para pendengar Keane sejati, tetapi lagu ini juga cukup membuat kuping saya addicted untuk mendengar lagi dan lagi.Jangan lupa cicip rapping K’Naan yang ciamik punya. Temanya sendiri cukup bagus dengan lirik yang cukup menyentuh “Sometimes I feel like a little lost child/Sometimes I feel like the chosen one/Sometimes I wanna shout out ’til everything goes quiet/Sometimes I wonder why I was ever born”. Lagu ini mempunyai makna bahwa berhentilah sejenak dan renungkanlah kejadian yang dahulu kita perbuat agar kehidupan kita ke depannya lebih baik.

Overall, lagu baru dari mereka ini cukup menghibur walau untuk pendengar Keane pasca piano-rock sound mereka akan mengernyitkan dahi untuk mendengar lagu ini pertama kali.

lyrics
Oh oooh whoaa oooh
WHoaa ohhh oh-oh
Keane
Some days, feels my soul has left my body
Feel I’m floating high above me
Like I’m looking down upon me
(oooh oooh)

Start sinking, everytime I get to thinking
It’s easier to keep on moving
Never stop to let the truth in
(oooh oooh)

K’naan
Sometimes I feel like it’s all been done
Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one
Sometimes I wanna change everything I’ve ever done
Too tired to fight and yet too scared to run

Chorus : Keane
And if I stop for a minute
I think about things I really don’t wanna know
And I’m the first to admit it
Without you I’m a liner stranded in an ice floe

yeah!

K’naan
I feel like I’m a thief who has no faith
Maybe more than by the grade
Of the drugs you took that day

Sinking in the pain he’s been inflicting
Yet he’s feeling like the victim
Just a horoscope’s to blame

Keane
Sometimes I feel like a little lost child
Sometimes I feel like the chosen one
Sometimes I wanna shout out ’til everything goes quiet
Sometimes I wonder why I was ever born

Chorus : Keane
And if I stop for a minute
I think about things really I don’t wanna know
And I’m the first to admit it
Without you I’m child and so wherever you go
I will follow

K’naan
And baby you are just beautiful from crown to your cuticles
You held down my two sons
you never frown when duty calls
You know me,
I gave you more than you can handle
But you still keep a handle on it
even when I take something beautiful and vandal on it
No more females?
Well how come my emails got notes on a scandal
It’s like Eve with the apple,
A priest in the chapel
Overcome by the devil’s tackle
I’m still shackling the bad til I know

Keane
And if I stop for a minute
I think about things I really don’t wanna know

K’naan
So I guess I’m just a fiend
Consumed by the scene

Keane
And I’m the first to admit it
Without you I’m a liner stranded in an ice floe

K’naan
The stage and the screens
Where it’s just me and Keane

oooh oooh
