SONG OF THE DAY: PIANO MAN-COLTON DIXON

By nurimroatun - January 03, 2014

Originally I wanna listen GD’s Crayon for today but last night Mbak Ki and I talked so much about the other song. That melody has glue or somewhat, now it stucks on my brain. Berbeda dari obrolan saya dengan mbak Fit yang topiknya seputar magic com, makanan, kegalauan kerjaan *pencitraan, Mbak Ki adalah partner ngobrol salah satunya soal musik. We’ve been friends for so long and guess what? Baru belakangan ini kami tahu kalau selera kami soal sepakbola dan musik sama *sob sob.

Topik yang kami bahas sebelum lagu ini adalah koreografi “Don’t Stop The Music” versi Team A WIN. Aaaaarrgghh, di mana logika sebuah dance bisa bikin mata berkaca-kaca? *sigh *blame it on genius choreographer Seunghoon. Kemudian tiba-tiba saja tadi malam obrolan kami nyasar ke lagu country berjudul “Piano Man”.  
Why so serious? Get your crayon!  Sing us a song youre piano man, sing us a song tonight (this is how my mind worked)

I said to Mbak Ki there’s a cover version of Piano Man that is gonna melt our heartss—she agreed. Colton Dixon’s Piano Man is one of my faves out of all American Idol season 11 performances. He’s not even my bias on that competition since Jessica Sanchez’s voice jailed my heart. Well, in many songs nothing beats the original version but Colton brings a different feeling. I love the original version but Colton version is heart-wrenching. His interpretation is admirable. The alternative pop-rock arrangement he picked trapped me in goosebumps.

Colton's performance that night effortless yet awesome. Dengan gayanya yang santai, dia menyanyi lagu Piano Man dengan iringan piano yang dialunkan sendiri *gimme oxygen *cant breath. The emotion is just so right. I was impressed by how classy and comfortable he was on the stage. Look at that performance, he sang it like it's in his own concert. *this is how I love his performance.

My life ruined by artists whom effortlessly send the message to their audience. Entah itu penari, pemain gitar, penyanyi, pelukis, pencipta lagu, penulis puisi, atau apapun itu—mereka yang membaurkan emosi dalam karya sungguh memikat.

He says, "Son, can you play me a memory. I'm not really sure how it goes, but it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete when I wore a younger man's clothes. *bowing down to Billy Joel, the one composed and sang this song. His lyric is a heartbreaker!

Semalam quote ini dikatakan Mbak Ki: Selalu lemah sama cowok yang nyanyi sambil maen instrumen musik. Kali ini saya yang gantian mengangguk setuju :)
