Single of The Day: Taylor Swift – I Knew You Were Trouble 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

It’s time to get some music make over. Taylor Swift sudah cukup menghasilkan tiga buah album dalam gubahan musik yang terstandarisasi sebagai citra musik pop country khasnya. Maka di album keempatnya ia berniat untuk lebih mengeksplorasi musiknya. Mendandaninya sedemikian rupa dengan pengaruh elektropop seperti terdengar dalam ‘I Knew You Were Trouble‘ ini. Taylor terdengar fresh dan fun dengan gaya musiknya yang baru. Mungkin ia mendengarkan pendapat orang yang menyebut musiknya begitu-begitu saja, sehingga memutuskan untuk membuat evolusi.

Yang paling terasa adalah beat. Now she has that bangging beat! Unsur suara yang memberikan efek menghentak bagi para pendengarnya. Mostly berkat gebukan drum. Namun karena ini melibatkan elektropop, disanalah peran besarnya tergantung. Taylor menemukan kenyamanan bekerjasama dengan Max Martin dan Shellback, yang telah mengantarkannya pada puncak sukses lebih tinggi lewat ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’. Single ini juga masih dipercayakan pada tim produser/pencipta lagu tersebut untuk diramu. Sementara untuk urusan vokal, Taylor kini lebih luwes. Di bagian verse ia masih seperti biasa, melahap lirik dengan cepat menunjukkan kelebihannya memiliki nafas yang panjang. Di bagian chorus lah permainan vokalnya yang berdinamika dengan falsetto yang terasa fresh!

Evolusi lainnya yang Taylor punya adalah penampilan. Talking about taking up a notch. She’s a bad girl now. Lihat saja musik video untuk single ini yang menampilkan Taylor dalam karakter yang menuntutnya untuk tampil lebih jalang dari biasa. Beradu akting dengan aktor Reeve Carney. Banyak yang membandingkannya dengan video ‘We Found Love’ milik Rihanna. Pasti karena faktor “trouble” yang ditampilkan. Dan itu juga faktor hiburan yang cukup menyenangkan.

LYRIC
[Music video spoken part:]
I think–I think when it’s all over,
It just comes back in flashes, you know?
It’s like a kaleidoscope of memories.
It just all comes back. But he never does.
I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen.
It’s not really anything he said or anything he did,
It was the feeling that came along with it.
And the crazy thing is I don’t know if I’m ever gonna feel that way again.
But I don’t know if I should.
I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright.
But I just thought, how can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you?
Maybe he knew that when he saw me.
I guess I just lost my balance.
I think that the worst part of it all wasn’t losing him.
It was losing me.

Once upon a time a few mistakes ago
I was in your sights, you got me alone
You found me, you found me, you found me
I guess you didn’t care, and I guess I liked that
And when I fell hard you took a step back
Without me, without me, without me

And he’s long gone when he’s next to me
And I realize the blame is on me

‘Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
‘Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

No apologies, he’ll never see you cry
Pretend he doesn’t know that he’s the reason why
You’re drowning, you’re drowning, you’re drowning
Now I heard you moved on from whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt is all I’ll ever be
And now I see, now I see, now I see

He was long gone when he met me
And I realize the joke is on me, hey!

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
‘Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

And the saddest fear comes creeping in
That you never loved me or her, or anyone, or anything, yeah

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
‘Til you put me down, oh
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
So shame on me now
Flew me to places I’d never been
Now I’m lying on the cold hard ground
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Oh, oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
Trouble, trouble, trouble

[Music video spoken part:]
I don’t know if you know who you are until you lose who you are.
