Single of the Day: Carly Rae Jepsen – I Really Like You 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

2015 mulai mendekat ke pertengahan tahun, yang artinya akan banyak lagu-lagu riang gembira. Pembukanya? Boleh jadi ‘I Really Like You‘ dari Carly Rae Jepsen.

Once you go black, you can never go back. Dalam kasus Carly Rae Jepsen, once you go pop, you can never go back. Terima kasih kepada ‘Call Me Maybe’, Carly mendapat kesempatan untuk going viral lewat video musiknya. Album “Kiss” yang ia rilis sebagai album internasional perdananya menawarkan penampilan total dalam dancepop, bubblegumpop, sehingga tak ayal kalau Carly lantas menyandang predikat guilty pleasure. Itu tak berubah dengan ‘I Really Like You’, single terbaru dari Carly.

Meskipun ia sudah dikenalkan dengan tim baru dalam penulisan lagunya, yakni J Kash (Avril Lavigne, Lifehouse) dan Peter Svensson (The Cardigans), sirna sudah harapannya untuk pulang kampung ke popfolk yang dulunya menjadi wheelhouse dari sang artis. Disini dancepop menyatakan kuasanya terhadap diri Carly. Suatu standar yang sudah terpasang sejak namanya menjadi sebuah komoditas global.

Pertanyaan besarnya adalah dapatkah ‘I Really Like You’ memenuhi standar yang diinginkan? Jika melihat video musiknya, yang menampilkan aktor kawakan Tom Hanks yang ber-lip sync ria sepanjang video plus penampakan khusus dari Justin Bieber di bagian akhirnya, ‘I Really Like You’ sudah sukses. Segala macam trend, mulai dari Tinder, selfie hingga flashmob ia tampakkan. Terkesan menguatkan konsep throwback ke pop 80-an yang sebenarnya meng-influence musiknya. Tampak kalau video musik ini adalah strategi pemasaran utama. Ilmu yang dikuasai, diterapkan kembali. Nicely done.

LYRIC
I really wanna stop but I just got the taste for it.
I feel like I could fly with the boy on the moon.
So honey hold my hand, you like making me wait for it.
I feel like I could die walking up to the room…oh yeah.

Late night watching television,
But how’d we get in this position.
It’s way too soon, I know this isn’t love,
But I need to tell you something.

I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me too?
I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me too?

Oh did I say too much?
I’m so in my head
When we’re outta touch (outta touch)
I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me too?

It’s like everything you say is a sweet revelation,
All I wanna do is get into your head.
Yeah we could stay alone, you and me and this temptation
Sipping on your lips, hanging on by a thread…baby.

Late night watching television,
But how’d we get in this position.
It’s way too soon, I know this isn’t love (no),
But I need to tell you something.

I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me too?
I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me too?

Oh did I say too much?
I’m so in my head
When we’re outta touch (when we’re outta touch)
I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me too?

Who gave you eyes like that, said you could keep them?
I dunno how to act or if I should be leavin’.
I’m running outta time, going outta my mind,
I need to tell you something, yeah I need to tell you something…
YEAH…..

I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me too?
I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me too?

Oh did I say too much? (did I say too much?)
I’m so in my head (I’m so in my head)
When we’re outta touch (when we’re outta touch)
I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me, too?

I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me too?
[Yeah I need to tell you something]
I really really really really really really like you
And I want you, do you want me, do you want me too?
