Single of the Day: Pixie Lott – Lay Me Down 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

Single ‘Lay Me Down‘ milik Pixie Lott adalah bukti bahwa kita masih bisa mendapatkan lagu enak di luar chart. Pasalnya, sejak single ini dirilis secara resmi per 27 Juli 2014, ia gagal masuk dalam jajaran 100 single di UK Singles Chart. Alhasil, Pixie terpaksa gigit jari karena tak sanggup menambah koleksi lagu penghuni chart yang ia punya dengan single ini. Result: less enthusiasm, padahal Pixie telah menjanjikan soul, R&B, dan Motown influenced dalam album studio ketiganya dengan persiapan matang tiga tahun jarak dari album sebelumnya. Tapi itu semua tidak memvonis lagu ini pada kesimpulan drop dead dreadful.

‘Lay Me Down’ justru lebih ear catchy dibanding ‘Nasty’. Beat yang ia tawarkan lebih segar dengan melodi yang semakin mendekati tema retro. Hook tersaji tergolong killer, “lay me down, lay me down, lay me down closer to you” ikut membantu kelancaran injeksi lagu ini ke dalam memori pendengar. Kesan ambisi pun terlukis dalam lirik. Diceritakan bahwa Pixie yang di mabuk kepayang butuh arahan yang cepat dan tepat untuk memangkan cinta sang pujaan hati.

Which is why so shame this Ashton Parson, Matt Parad, and Adam Pallin’s work didn’t get as many attention as it should. Sementara dunia pop menunjukkan apresiasi yang besar bagi para pendatang baru, seolah enggan menghangatkan cinta bagi pemain lama. Padahal ‘Lay Me Down’ bukan tipe grower, melainkan tipe instan, yang lebih gampang untuk difavoritkan. Semoga ini penggugah untuk penegakan keadilan bagi Pixie.

LYRIC
You see me howling at the Moon,
It’s what you thought me to do!
I’m chasing stars just to get back closer to you!
You see the ashes by the fire,
The only life that I knew
I touched the flame just to get back closer to you!

Show me the way,
I’ve done traveling too long with the cross on my back
And the hole in my heart
Now you say there’s no love to be found
When six feet down and I thought that I’d be closer to you!
Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down
Closer to you!

You hear me beating at the door,
What else you want me to do?!
Ooh, you got me crawling up the walls to get closer to you
Yes you do!

Show me the way,
I’ve done traveling too long with the cross on my back
And the hole in my heart
Now you say there’s no love to be found
When six feet down and I thought that I’d be closer to you!
And I thought I’d be closer to you!
Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down?
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down?
Closer to you!
Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down?
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down?
Closer to you!

I’ve done traveling too long with the cross on my back
And the hole in my heart
Now you say there’s no love to be found
When six feet down and I thought that I’d be closer to you!
Ooh oh oooh oh oh oh
Closer to you!!
Closer to you!!

Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down?
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down?
Closer to you!
Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down?
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down lay me down?
Closer to you!
