Single of The Day: Justin Timberlake – Tunnel Vision 

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Served as his third single for The 20/20 Experience, Tunnel Vision is the perfect example how Timbaland’s energy blended well with Justin Timberlake’s eclectic singing skill.It’s no a groundbreaking song, of course. Some might say it’s pretentious piece of crap. One thing for sure, Timberlake knows his music well.

Dihadirkan dalam tempo sedang, Tunnel Vision memadukan esensi antara RnB dan EDM,menjadikannya sebuah lagu yang tidak benar-benar menjadi milik satu subgenre saja. Kita bisa merasakan beat yang enerjetik, namun tidak benar-benar mencapai kecepatan yang diperlukan sebagai sebuah dance movement. Formula yang khas ini menjadikan Tunnel Vision tidak hanya berkualitas istimewa namun juga menawan buat didengar.

Trademark Timbaland, lengkap dengan gimmick vokal yang dulu membuat dia popular di dekade 90an begitu memenuhi lagunya. Namun, yang patut dicermati bagaimana Tunnel Vision terdengar vintage karena mengingatkan akan komposisi Timbaland di periode tersebut, dimana Hip-hop atau RnB terdengar lebih organis, ketimbang menghadirkan elektronika yang kompleks di serat musiknya.

Yang pasti keberhasilan Tunnel Vision karena Timberlake tahu dengan pasti menyanyikan lagu ini. Tanpa harus terlalu pamer kekuatan vokal, namun ia tetap menghadirkan dalam liukan yang manis. Dan jika ada yang menyebutkan Tunnel Vision kurang melodis, rasa-rasanya pernyataan tersebut perlu dipertanyakan kembali. Tunnel Vision justru hadir dalam notasi yang renyah dan mudah dicerna.

Tunnel Vision semakin “istimewa” karena musik videonya. Dikerjakan secara keroyokan oleh Jonathan Craven, Simon McLoughlin dan Jeff Nicholas, videonya menampilkan banyak ketelanjangan dari model-model perempuannya, sehingga tidak mengherankan jika di YouTube kita harus memasuki usia dewasa untuk bisa melihatnya. Konsepnya sederhana saja. Tidak ada yang njelimet. Dan berbeda dengan Blurred Lines-nya Robin Thicke yang juga bertipe sama, Timberlake tidak melakukan interaksi dengan para model dan cita rasa artistik lebih kental ketimbang erotisnya.

LYRIC
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it

Don’t know why but girl
I’m feeling close to you, maybe this ocean view
I’m so emotional, and all these stars been dancing on my head
Too long, too long, too long
I wrote a song for you, I wanna sing to you
But every time I’m close to you, the words wanna come out, but I forget
It’s so strong, it’s so strong, it’s so strong

Didn’t I seem like I’m catching something. That’s because it’s true
I can’t deny it, and I won’t try it but I think that you know
I look around and everything I see is beautiful ’cause all I see is you
And I can’t deny it and I stand by it, and I won’t hide it anymore

A crowded room anywhere, a million people around, all I see is you
And that everything just disappears, disappears, disappears, disappears
Yeah a million people in a crowded room
But my camera lenses only been set to zoom
And it all becomes so clear, becomes so clear, becomes so clear

I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision, I only see you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision, I only see you

Now that I know the truth, what am I supposed to do?
Changing up and breaking all my rules ever since we met
I’m so gone, I’m so gone, I’m so gone
Just like a movie shoot, I’m zooming in on you
Everything is extra, in the background, just fades into the set
As we ride off into the sun

Didn’t I seem like I’m catching something. That’s because it’s true
I can’t deny it, and I won’t try it but I think that you know
I look around and everything I see is beautiful ’cause all I see is you
And I can’t deny it and I stand by it, and I won’t hide it anymore

A crowded room anywhere, a million people around, all I see is you
That everything just disappears, disappears, disappears, disappears
Yeah a million people in a crowded room
But my camera lenses only been set to zoom
And it all becomes so clear, becomes so clear, becomes so clear

I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision, I only see you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision, I only see you

Zoom zoom zoom….
Zoom zoom zoom in on you
I only see you!
Zoom zoom zoom….
Zoom zoom zoom in on you
I only see you!

I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it

A crowded room anywhere, a million people around, all I see is you
That everything just disappears, disappears, disappears, disappears
Yeah a million people in a crowded room
But my camera lenses only been set to zoom
And it all becomes so clear, becomes so clear, becomes so clear

I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision, I only see you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision for you
I got that tunnel vision, I only see you

I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it

I only see you

I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it
I know you like it, I know you like it

I only see you, yeah.
