Single of the Day: Taylor Swift – Style 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

Taylor Swift ternyata memilih ‘Style‘ sebagai single ketiga untuk album larisnya, 1989. Ummm, apakah single ini berkisah tentang Harry Styles, personel One Direction, yang kabarnya pernah dipacarinya? Tergantung interprestasi pendengar. Yang pasti, ini adalah sebuah lagu yang mengemas synth-pop 80-an dengan bergaya.

Max Martin dan Shellback yang bertugas sebagai produser menghadirkan Taylor Swift dengan cukup pas sebagai seorang penampil pop 80-an, meski rasa-rasanya lagu lebih condong ke arah gaya M83 dalam versinya yang paling ringan.

Dan berbicara tentang M83, tentunya new wave-lah yang terlintas di benak. Maka, ‘Style’ juga terdengar mengemas new wave tadi dengan pekat, meski sekali lagi harus ditekankan pada kata ringan. Namun, bukan berarti lagu ini kehilangan tajinya. Swift tampaknya tahu benar bagaimana merangka sebuah lagu pop yang berkelas.

Sebagai lagu pop yang “berkelas”, liriknya pun mengandalkan metafora ketimbang lugas bertutur. Dengan lirik seperti “You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye / And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like / And when we go crashing down, we come back every time / ‘Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style,” apakah Swift mencoba untuk mengeksplorasi tentang konsep percintaan yang klasik dan retro? Bisa saja.

Video musiknya pun tak kalah istimewa. Disutradarai oleh Kyle Newman, video memperlihatkan cita rasa seni yang cukup tajam. Penggunaan siluet yang saling menimpali dengan atraktif adalah kekuatan videonya. Seolah-olah materi untuk sebuah pertunjukan video instalasi, video ‘Style’ bermain-main dengan gaya, tapi tak kehilangan esensi. Brilian!

LYRIC
Midnight, you come and pick me up, no headlights
Long drive, could end in burning flames or paradise
Fade into view, oh,
It’s been a while since I have even heard from you
(Heard from you)
I should just tell you to leave ’cause I
Know exactly where it leads but I
Watch it go round and round each time

You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
‘Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style
You’ve got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt
And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
‘Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style

So it goes, he can’t keep his wild eyes on the road
Takes me home, lights are off he’s taking off his coat (Hm yeah)
I say “I’ve heard that you’ve been out and about with some other girl”
(Some other girl)
He says “What you’ve heard is true but I
Can’t stop thinking about you and I.”
I said “I’ve been there too a few times”

‘Cause you got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
‘Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style
You’ve got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt
And I got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt (A tight little skirt)
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
‘Cause we never go (We never go) out of style, we never go out of style

Take me home
Just take me home
Yeah just take me home, oh

(Out of style) You got that James Dean daydream look in your eye
And I got that red lip, classic thing that you like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
‘Cause we never go out of style, we never go out of style
