Single of The Day: Mika vs RedOne – Kick Ass 

Photobucket“I have never written a song for a movie, I’ve had songs in movies which is always weird, you know? When you see faces you’ve grown up with kind of walking down the street to one of your songs. Feels like they’ve stolen it! But this one, [the producers of Kick-Ass] called me in, they made me watch the movie and then gave me three days to write the song. So, I was slightly terrified…It’s written completely for the film. I loved the film. It panders to all my weird obsessions and perversions. It’s demented! It’s wrong in every way, that’s why it’s so right” itulah pernyataan Mika tentang lagu ‘Kick Ass’. Ini memang dia karang bersama Jodi Marr untuk dijadikan soundtrack film layar lebar dengan judul yang sama. Diproduseri oleh RedOne, lagu ini sebenarnya diperkenalkan atas nama Mika vs RedOne.

Untuk kali pertama menulis lagu soundtrack, ini sangat mengesankan. Mika memberikan 100% dirinya ke dalam lagu ini. Instrumen piano, synth, gitar elektrik, drum beat, hingga cara bernyanyinya yang super fabulous. Yahud, Mika selalu tau persis apa yang ingin dia perbuat disini. Bagian yang paling aku suka di lagu ini adalah chorusnya yang mengajak kita untuk meneriakkan liriknya dengan lantang. Tidak hanya memberikan kita musik untuk didengar, tapi juga sebuah lagu untuk didendangkan bersama.

Secara lirik, lagu ini seperti kelanjutan lagu Mika sebelumnya, ‘We Are Golden’. Disini, Mika menyebutkan kita lebih dari sekedar ‘Golden’. Pokoknya semua positif, dech. Lebih ke self-esteem ketimbang narsis. Kredit juga buat RedOne, karena disini beliau mampu bertoleransi pada karyanya. Tidak hanya dance elektro, tapi juga penggilannya musik alternatif di dalamnya. Belom nonton videonya? Nikmati disini. Sekalian nungguin filmnya nangkring di bioskop di kota kamu! Hayo nyanyi bareng!

Lyrics:
We are young
We are strong
We’re not looking for where we belong
We’re not cool
We are free
And we’re running with blood on our knees

We could rule the world
On a silver platter
From the wrong to the right light
To an open stream

With a crash and burn
We could make it better
Turn it upside down
Just you and me

We are the dream
No other way
To be

We are young
We are strong
We’re not looking for where we belong
We’re not cool
We are free
And we’re running with blood on our knees

I could change the world
I could make it better
Kick it up and down
Take a chance on me

When you fake a smile
And you think you’re better
Gonna put it down
Rip it at your feet

No bridge to burn
Nowhere to turn
For me

We are young
We are strong
We’re not looking for where we belong
We’re not cool
We are free
And we’re running with blood on our knees

What do they know about us?
Are they thinking of somebody else?
Are they wondering what we might be?
Are they thinking of you or of me?

We are young
We are strong
We’re not looking for where we belong
We’re not cool
We are free
And we’re running with blood on our knees
