Single of The Day: Robbie Williams – Be A Boy 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

Terkadang Robbie Williams terdengar begitu filosifis. Mendengarkan ‘Be A Boy‘ laksana mengenakan sepatu seorang Robbie, melihat bagaimana hidup dengan sudut pandangnya: seorang pria dewasa yang tengah bercermin diri. Agak kejam untuk mengatakan bahwa ia tengah menghakimi diri sendiri, tapi tampaknya ia sedang menulis buku harian ketika kita mendengarkan lagu yang satu ini.

They said it was leaving me, the magic was leaving me, I don’t think so, I don’t think so

Dari segi musik, ‘Be A Boy’ memiliki struktur yang bercorak. Memanfaatkan saxophone sebagai intrumen penting yang menciptakan faktor X dalam lagu pop elektronika ber-midtempo ini. Sementara arahan musik elektronikanya menyikut ke pop era 80 – 90-an. Klasik dan menarik.

Robbie menggugah dalam bagian chorus, ia semi-rap di bagian akhir. Bukan hal baru baginya, karena dalam ‘Millennium’ maupun ‘Kids’ ia berlaku serupa. Yang cukup menyita perhatian adalah ketika iring-iringan vokal “oh, eh, eh, oh” hadir di beberapa bagian lagu, kita dipaksa untuk mengingat hook dalam ‘Use Somebody’ milik Kings of Leon. Begitu miripnya sehingga mungkin dalam setiap kali pembicaraan mengenai lagu ini hal tersebut pasti diungkap. Tapi semuanya masih bersatu dalam kesimpulan tetap wajib dengar.

LYRIC
When you’re young you hope to be
Menacing in vanity
6 feet tall, maybe more
Bigger now than before

They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don’t think so
I don’t think so

They said it was leaving
They said it went on
Now I could make this last forever
And be a boy, and be a boy

When you’re young you hope to see
And carve your name into the street
Bout your words of satellites
That keep the wasted up tonight

They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don’t think so
I don’t think so

They said it was leaving
They said it went on
Now I could make this last forever
And be a boy, and be a boy

There’s safety in the jungle
If you treat it like a toy
Make sure you talk to strangers
And be a boy, and be a boy

Be a boy

They said it was leaving me
The magic was leaving me
I don’t think so
I don’t think so

All of the boys are gonna be someone
The time you caught but it was gone
The time you caught but it was gone
It takes a big man to be someone

All of the boys are gonna be someone
The time you caught but it was gone
The time you caught but it was gone
It takes a big man to be someone

I’m half your age and lived twice your life
And hide on streets, you walk tonight
The time you caught but it’s not mine
It takes a big man to be someone

I’m half your age and lived twice your life
And I don’t sleep alone tonight
The time you caught but it’s not mine
It takes a big man to be someone
