Single of The Day: MKTO – Thank You 

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Apa atau siapa itu MKTO? Ternyata sebuah grup musik yang terdiri atas dua orang yang bernama Malcolm Kelley dan Tony Oller. MKTO merupakan singkatan dari nama mereka. Sederhana saja. Dan mereka siap bersaing dengan single perdana mereka yang bertajuk Thank You.

Dengan memasukkan sedikit imbuhan hiphop dan rock, maka Thank You adalah sebuah pop ceria anthemik yang tidak hanya saja sangat catchy dan easy listening, namun sangat adiktif. Sesaat setelah kita mendengar lagunya, segera saja kita tergerak untuk mengikuti irama dan liriknya yang mudah dicerna.

Bentuk Thank You itu gampang saja, karena duo MKTO menyusun lagu ini secara sederhana saja, baik secara melodi maupun notasi. Strukturnya pun terbagi atas dua bagian saja, rap dan chorus. Namun karena begitu, Thank You malah terdengar sangat mudah untuk dicerna dan gampang diingat, terutama bagian chorus-nya.

Ini menjadikan Thank You menjadi sebuah lagu yang tetap enak meski didengar berulang-ulang. Tentu saja kita tidak bisa menafikan jika kemudian Thank You dianggap cheesy, karena tidak memiliki estetika musik yang tinggi atau lirik yang dalam. But hey, it’s an pop anthem. Sah-sah saja, karena tujuan utamanya memang menghibur.

Duo Malcolm Kelley dan Tony Oller bertemu saat bermain di serial Gigantic milik Nickeledon. Dengan latar belakang mereka sebagai aktor, kehadiran Thank You sudah cukup memadai. Mereka menyebutkan jika gambaran album mereka nantinya itu, “Misfit Kids and Total Outcasts – just like the kids we were in high school.”

So, berangkat dari konsep tersebut, rasa-rasanya MKTO cukup berhasil dalam peer mereka dalam menarik perhatian. Ditunggu gebrakan album penuh mereka.

LYRIC
Yo, this one right here is for all the drop-out-of-schoolers.
The future cougars. The Mary Jane abusers.
The ones that chose to be losers, for all the Misfit Kids and total outcasts MKTO.
This one’s for you role models.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don’t tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong we’re breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there’s nothing left to lose.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies.
Thank you for the wars you left us to fight.
Thank you for the world you ruined overnight.
But we’ll be fine, yeah we’ll be fine.

Thank you for the world you broke,
Like yolk and it ain’t no joke.
So cold and there ain’t no coat,
Just me, my friends, my folks
And we gonna do what we like.
So raise that bird up high
And when they ask you why.
Just stand there laugh and smile.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don’t tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong we’re breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there’s nothing left to lose.

Na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na
(Thank you)

Thank you for the times you said, “Don’t make a sound.”
Thanks for the ropes you used to hold us down.
Cause when I break through I’ma use them to reach the clouds.
We ain’t comin’ down (Come on). We ain’t comin’ down (Hey).

Look, ma, I finally made it,
This world is too damn jaded.
My life is just like Vegas, go big, go home get faded.
Been a problem since ’92.
Can’t shut me down curfew
And them girls I’ll take a few.
Do what I wanna do.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don’t tell us how, don’t tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong we’re breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there’s nothing left to lose.

Na na na na (hey)
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na
(Thank you)

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
From head to toe from the soul you ripped apart.
I say, “Thank you.”
I say, “Thank you.”
Yeah, yeah

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don’t tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong we’re breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there’s nothing left to lose.

We are the ones, the ones you left behind.
Don’t tell us how, tell us how to live our lives.
Ten million strong we’re breaking all the rules.
Thank you for nothing, cause there’s nothing left to lose.

(Thank you)

Na na na na (hey)
Na na na na na na
Na na na na
Na na na na na na

Yo if you don’t like what they tell you to do, don’t do it.
If you don’t want to be who they want you to be, screw it.
It’s your world, it’s your life and they ruined it.
Role models, tune in, turn up, drop out
