Single of the Day: One Direction – Story Of My Life 

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Alrighty. “Midnight Memories”, album studio ketiga One Direction sudah dekat perilisannya. Single terbaru yang dirilis dari album ini adalah ‘Story Of My Life‘ yang tampak mulai menampakkan kedewasaan musik dari lima pemuda asal UK ini. John Ryan, Julian Bunetta, berikut Jamie Scott membantu Zayn cs dalam mewujudkan kesan kedewasaan tadi, sejenak menjinakkan kebiasaan upbeat 1D.

Lagu model demikian, pop beraroma folk yang juga terpengaruh oleh sedikit rock dan masih terdefinisi dalam ranah alternatif lumayan populer saat ini. Didapati dari nama-nama besar seperti Mumford & Sons maupun Ed Sheeran, radio tak lagi menganaktirikan tune yang tergolong non-mainstream ini. Besar harapan setelah 1D mulai menggarap musik serupa, maka berikutnya musik spesifik tersebut akan menembus level trend yang lebih tinggi.

Dari segi lirik, ‘Story’ juga tak kalah menyedot perhatian. Ia mengangkat kisah romansa yang gagal dengan gaya tulisan yang cukup kelam. Resapi bagian pre-chorus yang menurut saya adalah bagian yang paling menguras emosi dari keseluruhan lagu.
“And I’ll be gone, gone tonight
The ground beneteah my feet is open wide
The way that I’ve been holding on too tight
With nothing in between”

Atas dasar percobaan keluar dari zona nyaman, lagu berdurasi 4 menit 5 detik ini layak dicap sukses. Ia mampu menyempil dalam persaingan rilisan single yang ketat, mewarisi kekuatan yang mengalir dalam rilisan-rilisan 1D terdahulu. Tapi sebenarnya lebih dari itu, tujuan yang dipatok untuk ‘Story’ adalah menekankan pada publik bahwa mereka tak lagi melakukan eksploitasi terhadap satu warna musik, dan masih bisa menggenggam sukses dengan warna musik yang bervariasi.

LYRIC
Written in these walls are the stories that I can’t explain
I leave my heart open but it stays right here empty for days
She told me in the morning she don’t feel the same about us in her bones
Seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone

And I’ll be gone, gone tonight
The ground beneath my feet is open wide
The way that I’ve been holding on too tight
With nothing in between

The story of my life
I take her home
I drive all night to keep her warm
And time… is frozen (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life
I give her hope
I spend her love
Until she’s broke
Inside
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)

Written on these walls are the colors that I can’t change
Leave my heart open but it stays right here in its cage
I know that in the morning now I see us in the light upon a hill
Although I am broken, my heart is untamed, still

And I’ll be gone, gone tonight
The fire beneath my feet is burning bright
The way that I’ve been holding on so tight
With nothing in between

The story of my life
I take her home
I drive all night to keep her warm
And time… is frozen (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life
I give her hope
I spend her love
Until she’s broke
Inside
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)

And I’ll be waiting for this time to come around
But baby running after you is like chasing the clouds

The story of my life
I take her home
I drive all night to keep her warm
And time is frozen
The story of my life
I give her hope (give her hope)
I spend her love
Until she’s broke (until she’s broke inside)
Inside
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)

The story of my life
The story of my life (the story of, the story of)
The story of my life
