Single of The Day: Lupe Fiasco – The Show Goes On 

Image and video hosting by TinyPicSudah hampir 4 tahun Lupe Fiasco tidak mengeluarkan album dan sudah hampir 3 tahun sejak kita terakhir kali mendengar single darinya tetapi akhirnya pada tahun 2011 ini penantian panjang tersebut sudah berakhir karena tepatnya pada tanggal 8 Maret lalu Lupe Fiasco mengeluarkan album ke 3nya yang berjudul Lasers dan single pertamanya yang berjudul The Show Goes On sudah direlease sejak 26 October 2010. Pemilihan single The Show Goes On ini sangatlah tepat karena single ini berhasil mengantarkan Lasers ke puncak US Billboard 200 Album dan ini merupakan album pertama dari Lupe yang berhasil debut di posisi 1 walaupun sebenarnya The Show Goes On sendiri hingga saat ini hanya berhasil peak di posisi 39 pada Billboard Hot 100 namun cukup sukses di Australia karena perlahan tapi pasti single ini mulai memberikan impact yang cukup besar dan hingga saat review ini ditulis The Show Goes On ada di posisi 5 ARIA charts.

Melihat lebih jauh ke dalam lagu berdurasi 3:56 ini, The Show Goes On ditulis oleh Lupe sendiri dan diproduseri oleh Kane Beatz. Melodi dari lagu The Show Goes On mengambil sample dari lagu Modest Mouse yang berjudul Float On namun dengan tempo yang lebih cepat. Intro dibuka dengan melodi gitar dan ketika Lupe mulai bernyanyi bebunyian triumphant horns atau air horns membuat musik lagu ini terdengar megah. Selanjutnya beat drum, bebunyian horns serta melodi gitar yang terus berulang sepanjang lagu membuat lagu ini terdengar megah. Tidak bisa dipungkiri bahwa nyawa dari lagu ini berada pada chorus yang catchy serta flow rap dari Lupe Fiasco yang sangat pas berpadu manis dengan musiknya. Lagu ini merupakan salah satu lagu dari Lupe Fiasco yang bisa masuk kedalam kategori radio friendly. Lyric dari lagu ini bercerita mengenai bagaimana kerasnya hidup seorang Lupe Fiasco dari Ia kecil hingga akhirnya bisa sukses seperti sekarang ini.

Music video dari lagu ini sudah premiere sejak tanggal 23 December 2010 di channel Youtube Lupe Fiasco. Music videonya cukup simple dengan menampilkan perjalanan Lupe dari dressing room ke panggung. so, get ready ’cause when Lupe Fiasco come up,The Show Goes On !!

Lyrics:
LA-SER

Alright, already the show goes on
Alright, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!
Alright, already the show goes on
Alright, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!

[Lupe Fiasco Verse 1]
Have you ever had the feeling that you was being had
Don’t that sh-t make you mad
They treat you like a slave, with chains all on your soul,
And put whips up on your back,
They be lying through they teeth
Hope you slip up off your path
I don’t switch up I just laugh
Put my kicks up on they desk
Unaffected by they threats than get busy on they ass
See that’s how that Chi-Town made me
That’s how my daddy raised me
That glittering may not be gold, don’t let no body play me
If you are my homeboy, you never have to pay me
Go on and put your hands up, when times are hard you stand up
L-U-P the man, cause a brand that the fans trust
So even if they ban us they’ll never slow my plans up!

Alright, already the show goes on
Alright, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!
Alright, already the show goes on
Alright, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!

[Lupe Fiasco Verse 2]
One in the air for the people that ain’t here
Two in the air for the father that’s there
Three in the air for the kids in the ghetto
Four for the kids who don’t wanna be there
None for the n-ggas trying to hold them back
Five in the air for the teacher not scared to tell those kids thats living in the ghetto that the n-ggas holdin back that the World is theirs!
Yeah yeah, the World is yours, I was once that little boy
Terrified of the World
Now I’m on a World tour
I will give up everything, even start a world war
For these ghettos girls and boys im rapping round’ the World for!
Africa to New York, Haiti then I detour, Oakland out to Auckland
Gaza Strip to Detroit, say hip-hop only destroy
Tell em’ look at me, boy!
I hope your son don’t have a gun and that would be a D-boy

Alright, already the show goes on
Alright, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!
Alright, already the show goes on
Alright, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!

[Lupe Fiasco Verse 3]
So no matter what you been through
No matter what you into
No matter what you see when you look outside your window
Brown grass or green grass
Picket fence or barbed wire
Never ever put them down
You just lift your arms higher
Raise em till’ your arms tired
Let em’ know you’re their
That you struggling and survivin’ that you gonna persevere
Yeah, ain’t no body leavin, no body goin’ home
Even if they turn the lights out the show is goin’ on!

Alright, already the show goes on
Alright, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!
Alright, already the show goes on
Alright, till the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up
The show goes on!
