Single of the Day: 5 Seconds of Summer – Amnesia 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

Single ketiga, saatnya untuk menunjukkan sisi lain. Band asal Australia 5 Seconds of Summer merilis ‘Amnesia‘, sebuah lagu berbasis musik akustik sebagai single ketiga dari album perdana mereka. Dan ini sedikit bergeser dari padanan musik Ashton dkk sebelumnya, dimana pop rock diaplikasikan dalam tatanan musik akustik, sehingga goal yang dituju adalah pengalaman emosional pendengar.

What makes this so different? Pertama, dan juga yang utama, adalah campur tangan orang-orang di luar band dalam penggubahannya. Madden bersaudara; Benji dan Joel plus duo ballad maut Louis Biancaniello + Sam Watters, dengan asistensi dari Michael Biancaniello berhasil meramu komposisi tepat dan akurat untuk serangan emosional ini. Kehadiran orang-orang ini terpaksa harus mengusir keberadaan empat cowok 5SOS dari peran di belakang layar, yang kemudian memaksa mereka untuk melakukan interpretasi karya musik yang tidak datang dari otak sendiri. No big deal, band ini juga “besar” karena membawakan lagu-lagu orang, dulunya. Bedanya, kali ini mereka memberi imbuhan original pada kebiasaan tersebut.

CMIIW, ‘Amnesia’ secara musik sangat mengingatkan kita pada ‘Little Things’-nya One Direction. Dari pembagian vokal hingga vibe yang mereka ciptakan, sama-sama bergerak dalam dimensi yang sama. Tapi drama yang dimainkan dalam skenario liriknya yang sama sekali tak serupa. ‘Amnesia’ adalah penggalan kisah sedih dalam satu karakter yang belum bisa move on. Banyak didapati goresan makna kesendirian dan pengakuan ketidakberesan diri, serta pengharapan untuk tidak berada pada posisi tersebut. Sulit untuk membayangkan hal ini bisa benar-benar terjadi, terutama terhadap keempat pria muda 5SOS. They’re cute to death, they can get any girls any day of the week. Tapi ini juga membenarkan sabda lagu yang mengatakan “Rocker Juga Manusia”, they can get brokenhearted too.

LYRIC
I drove by all the places we used to hang out getting wasted
I thought about our last kiss, how it felt the way you tasted
And even though your friends tell me you’re doing fine

Are you somewhere feeling lonely even though he’s right beside you?
When he says those words that hurt you, do you read the ones I wrote you?

Sometimes I start to wonder, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

‘Cause I’m not fine at all

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

‘Cause I’m not fine at all

The pictures that you sent me they’re still living in my phone
I’ll admit I like to see them, I’ll admit I feel alone
And all my friends keep asking why I’m not around

It hurts to know you’re happy, yeah, it hurts that you’ve moved on
It’s hard to hear your name when I haven’t seen you in so long

It’s like we never happened, was it just a lie?
If what we had was real, how could you be fine?

‘Cause I’m not fine at all

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

If today I woke up with you right beside me
Like all of this was just some twisted dream
I’d hold you closer than I ever did before
And you’d never slip away
And you’d never hear me say

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
I remember the make-up running down your face
And the dreams you left behind you didn’t need them
Like every single wish we ever made
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the memories I never can escape

‘Cause I’m not fine at all
No, I’m really not fine at all
Tell me this is just a dream
‘Cause I’m really not fine at all
