Single of the Day: Kylie Minogue – I Was Gonna Cancel 

Released by: Warner Music Indonesia

Setelah memenangkan Grammy untuk kategori produksi, nama Pharrell Williams pun berada di no.1 incaran para artis penyanyi. Tak terkecuali Kylie Minogue, yang tampaknya sangat bersemangat untuk kolaborasi tersebut. Dari album studio terbarunya, “Kiss Me Once”, Kylie langsung merilis ‘I Was Gonna Cancel‘, lagu karya Pharrell sebagai single andalan kedua setelah ‘Into The Blue’. Versatil-nya Kylie membuatnya nge-blend sempurna untuk konsep musik disko nan funky ini.

Dikenal sebagai Dance Diva, dominasi infus musik terbesar yang Kylie eksekusi adalah corak euro-pop-dance. Wajar, ia besar di daratan Eropa, nyaris tak diakui kesuksesannya di daratan Amerika, sehingga berlaku “menyenangkan publik yang menyenanginya” adalah prioritas. Namun melihat kesuksesan global yang Pharrell punya saat ini, ia laksana memberi green card kepada Kylie untuk masuk dan beredar di publik Amerika.

Terima kasih atas skenario lampau (“was”) dalam lagu ini, yang ternyata diilhami dari pengalaman pribadi Kylie dan Pharrell saat hendak memulai proses kerjasama mereka. Seandainya Kylie patah arang akibat hari buruk yang menimpanya dan membatalkan sesi dengan Pharrell, ‘I Was Gonna Cancel’ pasti tak akan pernah lahir. Keduanya pun memborbardir pengalaman tersebut agar tertuang sebagai ide cerita di lagu, berikut video musik yang menampilkan Kylie bersama begitu banyak extra, tanpa harus tenggelam dalam lautan manusia itu.

This video is an abstract look at pedestrian life and how we’re all just trying to get through and rise above everyday challenges. Although the song talks about a real life event that happened the day I recorded the song with Pharrell, the video has a more conceptual approach and I love how surreal it looks. I found myself almost directing traffic and it made me think about how we’re all just trying to negotiate our way through day to day life.” – Kylie Minogue

Moral of the story adalah jangan pernah biarkan hal buruk menghalangimu untuk mendapatkan yang terbaik. Karena habis gelap terbitlah terang, setelah hujan muncullah pelangi.

LYRIC
I was gonna cancel then I looked into the sky,
Knew the badness won’t prevent the sun to shine
I was gonna cancel then took a sec to realize
All the disappointment that would trail behind,
I was gonna cancel then you reminded me of who I am,
Everything is clearer than a mirror is to woman
Just the same as a dog is to man.

(Oh) Just hop out of the bed, (hey)
Go ahead face the day,
Who cares what you know,
Don’t let that in the way no way,
Shut out all the doubt, (hey)
Just get up and go,
What’s on the other side? (Yeah)
You will never know unless you,
Go, go, go, gi-i-irl,
Go, go, go, gi-i-irl,
Go, go, go, gi-i-irl,
Go, go, go, go girl.

I was gonna cancel then I thought about the strength
That I got from all of the prayers and what it meant,
I was gonna cancel then I realized
That time is just that money and the love watch how you spend,
I was gonna cancel until you reminded me of what I do,
Now I see it clearer, my best friend is a mirror look behind me
And I see all the things I’ve been through.

Just hop out of the bed, (hey)
Go ahead face the day,
Who cares what you know,
Don’t let that in the way no way,
Shut out all the doubt,
Just get up and go,
What’s on the other side?
You will never know unless you,
Go, go, go, gi-i-irl,
Go, go, go, gi-i-irl,
Go, go, go, gi-i-irl,
Go, go, go, go girl.

What’s wrong with saying I love you?
It’s nothing to kid about.
Some people going through a struggle,
Trying to scribble it out.
They say attention is a shovel,
It’s time to dig ’em out.
You can’t just let ’em stay in a bubble,
They’ll pop to get it out.

What’s wrong with love, love?
What’s wrong with love, love?

Just hop out of the bed, (hey)
Go ahead face the day,
Who cares what you know,
Don’t let that in the way no way,
Shut out all the doubt, (yeah)
Just get up and go, (hey)
What’s on the other side?
You will never know unless you,
Go, go, go, gi-i-irl,
Go, go, go, gi-i-irl,
Go, go, go, gi-i-irl,
Go, go, go, go girl.
