No need to look for paradise


Hey kalian, apakabar??? *lap ingus* Kali ini saya ingin berbagi tentang penyanyi favorite saya. Sebenarnya banyak sekali penyanyi favorit saya, tapi ada 2 orang yang akan saya singgung dalam tulisan ini. Keduanya wanita yang bernyanyi dengan diiringi musik minimalis. Mereka adalah Emi Fujita dan Corrinne May.

Emi Fujita adalah penyanyi Jepang yang banyak menyanyikan lagu-lagu western popular yang di-recycle jadi lebih minimalis dan nyaman ditelinga. Yeap, seperti Sabrina yang banyak menyanyikan ulang lagu-lagu recycle dengan diiringi gitar akustik. Lagu-lagu Emi Fujita kebanyakan bercerita tentang cinta. Beberapa favorit saya : How do I fall in love with you, and I love you so, From a distance, my summer love. Coba deh dengerin, you’ll love it. Tapi lagu-lagunya gak cocok buat pagi-pagi bisa-bisa balik ke kasur lagi. Enaknya didengar malam menjelang tidur. Ah, enakeun deehhh… di jamin… Coba aja dengerin sendiri.

Selanjutnya, adalah Corrinne May, seorang penyanyi wanita dari Singapur. She’s not just a singer but also a song-writer. Saya suka semua lagunya. Lagu-lagu ciptaannya seperti ada soulnya, karena memang ternyata terinspirasi dari hubungannya dengan Tuhan. Lagu-lagu kerennya diantaranya : Angle in disguise, Safe in a crazy world, Free, Stay on the road, Let it go. Oh man, those songs will bite you inch by inch. The lyric means a lot. Contohnya lagu Angle in disguise yang sangat menginspirasi bagi saya. Berikut potongan liriknya :

I woke up this morning feeling kind of blue
and I stumbled out of bed and
dragged my feet across the room
Right outside my front door was a rose
and a note that said ‘Somebody Loves You’

Oh~ But out on the street it starts to pour
and before I get soaking wet,
A total stranger runs to give me
the jacket off his back
I turn around to thank him
But he waves me with a smile
And I can hardly believe my eyes
He puts on a halo and starts to fly

Take a look at the ordinary
Don’t need to look for Paradise
You could be next to
an angel in disguise

We may be next to an angle in disguise. Those people who will help you without asking a return favor. Those people who just being touched and decided to give their hand and help us to get back up. No need to look for paradise while actually angles are all around us. It’s possible to make a paradise down in this earth by being one of the angles who’ll pass the favor to somebody else. Take a look at the ordinary, angles is spreading all over the world. Be sensitive and be sincere to get the feel of it.

So, those are my favorite singer in which I got a lot of inspiration coming from. Who’s yours??
