Single of the Day: Owl City feat. Hanson – Unbelievable 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

Adam Young menciptakan sebuah single baru berjudul ‘Unbelievable‘ yang akan membawa kita kembali bernostaliga khususnya bagi yang pernah menjalani masa kecil di tahun 90-an. Musisi yang tampil dengan nama Owl City ini bercerita bagaimana serunya masa kecil saat kita sering manjat pohon dan begadang nonton film action. Tak lupa Adam membubuhkan beberapa merk-merk makanan yang iconic banget seperti Dr Pepper jellybeans dan kentang goreng McDonald’s.

Kolaborasinya dengan band Hanson di lagu ini semakin memperkental ingatan kita tentang serunya masa-masa 90-an. Hanson adalah band muda yang terkenal pada masa itu dengan hits-nya “Mmbop”. Dan ternyata, diam-diam Adam Young dulu adalah penggemar Hanson. Adam bercerita bahwa ia menghubungi Hanson dan mengajak untuk berkolaborasi. Tanggapan dari Hanson pun sangat positif dan mereka mulai saling mengirim materi hingga akhirnya lahirlah lagu ‘Unbelievable’ ini.

Sesuai dengan gaya bermusik Owl City yang mengedepankan musik elektronik, maka campur tangan Hanson tidak terdengar secara instrumental. Tapi tentunya kolaborasi vokal Isaac, Taylor, Zac dan Adam sendiri menjadi sesuatu yang segar di lagu ini.

Sebenarnya lagu ini akan semakin ciamik jika diberi judul ‘When I Was a Kid’, tapi bait “It’s Unbelievable” diucapkan berulang-ulang di bagian chorus sehingga menjadi tagline yang tak dapat dipisahkan dari lagu itu sendiri.

It’s unbelievable
This is as good as it gets
It’s unbelievable
Don’t know what’s gonna happen next
It’s unbelievable
You haven’t seen nothing yet
It’s unbelievable, it’s unbelievable

When I was a kid I saved up all my dough so I could buy C-3PO
Put Mentos in my Diet Coke in the backseat of the bus
When I was a kid I ate “Spaghetti Os”, played laser tag and GI Joe’s
And if you vowed no girls allowed then you could join the club
When I was a kid I spent my Saturday’s
Blowin’ on Nintendo games
The newest thing was Lion King and I could feel the love

It’s unbelievable
This is as good as it gets
It’s unbelievable
Don’t know what’s gonna happen next
It’s unbelievable
You haven’t seen nothing yet
It’s unbelievable, it’s unbelievable

[Hanson:]
When I was a kid I dreamed of Power Wheels
Stayed up late watching action films
And I won’t lie, my friends and I, were too legit to quit
When I was a kid I lived for climbing trees ate Dr Pepper jellybeans
My favorite part of “Jurassic Park” was how real the Raptors looked
When I was a kid I still had VHS, watched Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff
Zack Morris owned the first cell phone, it was off the hook!

It’s unbelievable
This is as good as it gets
It’s unbelievable
Don’t know what’s gonna happen next
It’s unbelievable
You haven’t seen nothing yet
It’s unbelievable, it’s unbelievable

Cat, pogs, and floam and home alone, Berenstein bears and bean bag chairs
My L.A. Looks and Goosebumps books, oh Etch-a-sketch
What happens next?
Grape juicy juice and Dr. Seuss, piggy-back rides and
Slip-n-slides, McDonalds Fries, those were the best
What happens next?

It’s unbelievable
This is as good as it gets
It’s unbelievable
Don’t know what’s gonna happen next
It’s unbelievable
You haven’t seen nothing yet
It’s unbelievable, those were the days oh-oh

It’s unbelievable
When I think back I’m amazed
It’s unbelievable
Cause baby those were the days
It’s unbelievable
It ruled in so many ways
It’s unbelievable, it’s unbelievable

(And I’m so amazed!)
(Those were the days!)
