Single of The Day: Robbie Williams – Candy 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

Robbie Williams secara harfiah mengambil takhtanya. “Take The Crown” sebagai album studio kesembilannya mengungguli apa yang telah dicapai oleh kumpulannya, Take That. Dan ‘Candy‘ sebagai single andalan dari album terebut, berhasil merebut perhatian khalayak dan menempatkannya di puncak UK Singles Chart.

Ia sepertinya tahu saja bagaimana untuk menciptakan suasana yang menghibur. Banyak moment yang menceriakan dalam musik ‘Candy’. Sedari awal muncul dalam tempo yang cepat, menderap maju dan menaikkan levelnya ke titik puncak di bagian chorus. Menggelitik juga bagaimana sarkasme lirik tercipta sebagai pondasi lagu. Ya bukan hanya cewek yang jago mengeluarkan sindiran. Lihat bagaimana cowok, ehem, Robbie maksudnya menceritakan si gadis yang merasa ia superlatif. Humor.

Mestinya mereka meletakkan label Parental Guidance setiap kali video musik untuk ‘Candy’ hendak tayang. Ia mengandung banyak unsur kekerasan jalanan, beragam kecelakaan lalu lintas, berulang kali kaca pecah, hingga api yang membakar sosok Robbie yang tengah menjadi malaikat pelindung si gadis. Hal-hal yang membuat decak kagum pada efek viusalnya, namun belum dapat dikonsumsi nalar anak-anak.

Meskipun demikian, tetap saja ke-catchy-an single ini tidak dapat diperdebatkan. Selain irama yang luar biasa menyenangkan, ia juga punya rima lirik yang cerdas. Membuat asyik untuk kita ikut bernyanyi bersamanya. Buat cewek-cewek, hati-hati kalau ada lelaki yang menyebut kalian ‘Candy’. Ia mungkin sedang merujuk ke lagu ini ketika berkata demikian. 😛

LYRIC
I was there to witness
Candice’s inner business
She wants the boys to notice
Her rainbows, and her ponies
She was educated
But could not count to ten
How she got lots of different horses
By lots of different men
And I say

Liberate your sons and daughters
The bush is high
But in the hole there’s water
You can get some, when they give it
Nothing sacred, but it’s a living

Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cause she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
Got a hurricane in the back of her throat
And she thinks she’s made of candy

Ring a ring of roses
Whoever gets the closest
She comes and she goes
As the war of the roses
Mother was a victim
Father beat the system
By moving bricks to Brixton
And learning how to fix them
Liberate your sons and daughters
The bush is high
But in the hole there’s water
As you win
She’ll be the whole of her love,
And if it don’t feel good
What are you doing it for
Now tell me

Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cause she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
Got a hurricane in the back of her throat
And she thinks she’s made of candy

Liberate your sons and daughters
The bush is high
But in the hole there’s water
As you win
She’ll be the whole of her love
And if you don’t feel good
What are you doing it for
What are you doing it for
What are you doing it for
What are you doing it for
What are you doing it for
What are you doing it for
What are you doing it for
What are you doing it for
What are you doing it for

Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cause she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
Got a hurricane in the back of her throat
And she thinks she’s made of candy

Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too high or a little too low
Got no self-esteem and vertigo
Cause she thinks she’s made of candy
Hey ho here she goes
Either a little too loud or a little too close
Got a hurricane in the back of her throat
And she thinks she’s made of candy
