Single of the Day: Rendy Pandugo - I Don't Care & Silver Rain

Terus terang saya terkejut sekaligus takjub saat mengetahui bahwa lagu yang berjudul 'I Don't Care' ini adalah karya seorang anak bangsa. Ya, Rendy Pandugo namanya. Ia adalah pria kelahiran 7 Mei 1985 yang memulai karir musik profesionalnya dalam sebuah grup bernama Di-Da di tahun 2010 silam. Karir solonya dimulai saat ia merekam ulang lagu 'Sebuah Kisah Klasik' dari Sheila on 7 di pertengahan 2016 lalu, setelah sebelumnya "aktif bermusik" di Soundcloud. Dan di penghujung 2016 ia merilis lagu originalnya dalam Bahasa Inggris.

Kembali ke keterkejutan dan ketertakjuban saya terhadap lagu 'I Don't Care'. Lagu ini terdengar sangat "luar negeri". Musik blues yang nge-pop memberi kesan easy listening yang mutlak. Vokal Rendy pun terdengar sangat bule. John Mayer-esque. Itu yang kemudian membuatnya dijuluki sebagai John Mayer-nya Indonesia. Bagi musisi tanah air dibandingkan dengan musisi sesohor John pastilah sangat membanggakan. Tapi kemudian, Rendy agaknya merasa pembanding tersebut sudah mulai mengganggu. Wajar, karena sebagai pendatang baru ia butuh identitas sendiri yang nantinya akan menjadi kualitas guna menjaga eksistensinya di industri rekaman.

Rendy ternyata menulis lagu ini bersama Leody Akbar (teman Rendy, artis Soundcloud juga), dimana ia lebih dominan dalam pengerjaan musik dan Leody di bagian lirik. Direkam di studio musik di negara Swedia, proses produksinya melibatkan musisi-musisi dari Indonesia, juga Swedia. Ya, dengan demikian kita tahu alasan bahwa produksi lokal ini bisa terasa internasional tersebut.

'I Don't Care' menceritakan tentang kemarahan kepada pasangan, dimana rasa marah tersebut sudah maksimal sehingga mencapai titik tidak peduli. Dan ini bertolak belakang dengan 'Silver Rain' yang ternyata sebuah kisah mengenai cinta lama bersemi kembali (CLBK). Selain tema lagu yang tidak berada di satu titik, garapan musiknya pun berbeda 180 derajat lho. Di 'Silver Rain', Rendy memberanikan diri untuk bermain dengan tempo. Katanya sih untuk menunjukkan sisi lain dirinya yang berbeda dari 'Klasik' dan 'Care'. Kenyataannya memang begitu. Bagi saya pribadi, lagu ini lebih radio friendly dibanding dua lagu terdahulu.

Pencangkokan faham elektronika ke dalam aksi musik akustik yang organik khas Rendy adalah sebuah revolusi terindah yang bisa ditawarkan oleh 'Silver Rain'. Kalau dulu awalnya menyanyikan lagu dalam Bahasa Inggris merupakan sebuah bentuk eksplorasi, maka sepertinya Rendy sudah menemukan zona nyamannya dalam menyanyikan lagu-lagu dengan bahasa internasional tersebut. I don't have problem with that. In fact, I'm in love. Go Rendy Pandugo!!!!

Lirik I Don't Care:

[Verse 1]

I don't need to stay when you're away

I don't need to stay when you walk away

I don't need to move when you're in my way

I don't need to see what we are today

[Pre-Chorus]

I don't wanna stay up late just to hold you

I don't wanna do what we used to do

Oh I don't care

[Chorus]

I don't even know why we're trying

I don't even care just to ask

'Cuz baby don't you know that we're dying

I don't be sad, and it's over

But I don't care

[Verse 2]

I don't need to be your everything

I don't need to be your sweetest thing

Baby we were lost when you hold my hand

Baby I just don't wanna understand

[Pre-Chorus]

I don't wanna stay up late just to hold you

I don't wanna do what we used to do

Oh I don't care

[Chorus]

I don't even know why we're trying

I don't even care just to ask

'Cuz baby don't you know that we're dying

I don't be sad, and it's over

But I don't care

When it's over, and I'm free

When it's done, for you and me

And I know you know that I don't want

I don't want its for you and me

And I don't even know why we're trying

I don't even care just to ask

'Cuz baby don't you know that we're dying

I don't be sad, and it's over

And I don't even know why we're trying

I don't even care just to ask

'Cuz baby don't you know that we are dying

I don't be sad, and it's over

But I don't care

I don't care

But I don't care

Lirik Silver Rain:

[Verse 1]

Could not forget about the dress

You didn't wear it to impress

I said you look nice my voice was breaking

Giving you flowers hands were shaking

When I met you, you were ten

Even though things were different then

I still get the butterflies around you

I get weak down to my knees

[Chorus]

You and I, we could fly together

Like a hot air balloon in the sky

Take your time, we could last forever

Silver rain you make me feel so divine

Ooooooh Ooooooh

Like a hot air balloon in the sky

Ooooooh Ooooooh

Silver rain you make me feel so divine

[Verse 2]

It's been twenty years or so

And you're still as beautiful as flowers grow

We're not together we're united

Smell of your skin is on my blanket

It's our song don't need no ring

Because of you I want to sing

We don't need to say "I love you"

Cause I know where I've you

[Chorus]

You and I, we could fly together

Like a hot air balloon in the sky

Take your time, we could last forever

Silver rain you make me feel so divine

Ooooooh Ooooooh

Like a hot air balloon in the sky

Ooooooh Ooooooh

Silver rain you make me feel so divine

[Bridge]

Scream a little louder

Jump a little further

Laying here beside her

If it rains don't even bother

Scream a little louder (louder)

Jump a little further

Laying here beside her

If it rains don't even

[Chorus]

You and I, we could fly together

Like a hot air balloon in the sky

Take your time, we could last forever

Silver rain you make me feel so divine

Ooooooh Ooooooh

Like a hot air balloon in the sky

Ooooooh Ooooooh

Silver rain you make me feel so divine
