Single of the Day: Joss Stone – The Love We Had (Stays On My Mind) 


The Soul Sessions Vol. 2” milik Joss Stone adalah album sekuel yang sangat kental ide soul-nya. Musik, lirik, dan vokalnya kompak mencurahkan soul ke dalam keseluruhan album, termasuk ‘The Love We Had (Stays On My Mind)‘ yang terakhir dirilis sebagai single dari album tersebut. Album cover version milik Joss Stone ini akhirnya tak kalah dalam urusan originalitas, mengingat kekuatan karakter yang mendalam terukir dari satu lagu ke lagu lainnya.

Gaya itu yang sebenarnya memberikan kepiluan maksimum untuk lagu ini. Ketika ia menggeram, ada keretakan dalam hati yang terbuat. Emosi tersebut mengalir murni dalam bagian chorus, yang benar menguras atensi untuk berempati terhadap rangkaian lirik yang dinyanyikan.
But early this morning, when I opened up my eyes//That old lonesome feeling took me by surprise//I guess you meant more to me than I realized//The love we had stays on my mind

Sajian emosi dalam porsi demikian membuat lirik tersebut believeable. Dramatisir yang dilakukan relevan, karena drama tersebut sebenarnya implisit di lagunya.

Pujian berikutnya adalah permainan vokal yang brilian memunculkan dinamika kelas wahid. Naik turun nada yang dibawakan dengan luwes mengundang decak kagum. This is how you do it, this is how you nail it, this is how you sing someone’s song. Sedikit terasa kalau vokal Joss di bagian verse tidak seberat dahulu, tapi itu bukan perkara besar. Ia masih “ngotot” dalam level yang sama sekali tak berkurang kadarnya.

It is a perfect song for Joss. Saya melihat lagu ini sebagai balada emosional terbaik kedua yang dirilisnya sebagai single, setelah ‘Right To Be Wrong’. Banyak momen yang tercipta, dari segi vokal di dalamnya. Emosional juga, terutama saat menyaksikan video musik yang menyajikan kesendirian Joss sebagai bumbu suasana kehampaan yang menjadi headline-nya. Caution: ‘The Love We Had (Stays On My Mind)’ tidak direkomendasi pasca putus. Trust me, it will do you no good.

LYRIC
Lately baby, I’ve been thinking
How good it was when you were here
And it ain’t the wine that I been drinking
For once I feel my head is clear

But early this morning, when I opened up my eyes
That old lonesome feeling took me by surprise
I guess you meant more to me than I realized
The love we had stays on my mind
The love we had stays on my mind

And lately girl, I’ve been remembering
The good times that we used to share
My thoughts of you don’t have an ending
And memories of you are everywhere

But why should I tell you, it’s not your concern
You win some, you lose some
Well I’ve lost and I’ve learned
It’s just that I’m so lonely
With no place to turn
And here at the end, I find
Yes I do

The love we had stays on my mind
Girl, if you were nearer
If you had a mirror
Maybe you could count my tears

And if you were nearer
It would all be clearer
How I wish that you were here
How I wish that you were here
How I wish, how I wish
How I wish that you were here

And baby girl I was tired
So I laid down to dream for a little while
But lately I’ve been so, so uninspired
Without the comfort of your smile

But I’m not complaining
Cuz that’s how it goes
There’s always some heartache
In this world I suppose
But you can’t imagine
But nobody knows

The love we had stays on my mind
The love we had stays on my mind
The love we had stays on my mind
