BEHIND THE LYLICS……..

We’ all biasa mendengar berbagai-bagai jenis lagu yang didendangkan di telinga kita. Dari zaman dahulu sampailah ke zaman moden sekarang nie. Ada lagu rock, ballad, jazz and a lot more. Waktu I kecik dulu, I biasa tanya mak I, siapa penyanyi yang dia suka and dia akan jawab Uji Rashid. Bila I try dengar lagu-lagu dia, hemm…..best jugak.

Kalau macam I pulak, macam biasa lah, waktu I kecik…..tak berapa ambik pot sangat pun pasal lagu-lagu nie, then bila I dah besar sikit, start lah dengar lagu Justin timberlake, Britney and sebagainyer lah. Bila sekarang nie, memang macam-macam lagu yang I dengar. Tak kisah lah lagu local or international as long as that song was good.

Normally, I love a song based on its lyric and the melody. If the lyric and the melody were good, then I will like that song even Tina Turner was singing it. I don’t mind. Every single lyric has its own story. Some was telling us about the happiness thing, some was telling about how sad their when the heart was broken.

And because there are so many lyric that we heard everyday, today I want to share with all of you one song. Actually this song is one of my favorite songs. Imagine by John Lennon.(he is a vocalist of The Beatles). Now listen this…..

Ok…..sekarang nie korang dah dengar kan that song, so….. I nak tanya korang semua, did you get the point?. Takpe kalau korang masih blerr…. I dah tuliskan liriknya untuk kita sama-sama hayatinya. PLEASE READ THIS LYRIC AND TRY TO REALLY UNDERSTANDING THAT LYRIC!!!

IMAGINE


IMAGINE THERE’S NO HEAVEN
IT’S EASY IF YOU TRY
NO HELL BELLOW US
ABOVE US ONLY SKY

IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE
LIVING FOR TODAY
I…..

IMAGINE THERE’S NO COUNTRIES
IT ISN’T HARD TO DO
NOTHING TO KILL OR DIE FOR
AND NO RELIGION TOO

IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE
LIVING LIFE IN PEACE
YOU….

YOU MAY SAY I’M DREAMER
BUT I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE
I HOPE SOMEDAY YOU JOIN US
AND THE WORLD WILL BE AS ONE

IMAGINE NO POSSESSIONS
I WONDER IF YOU CAN
NO NEED FOR GREED OF HUNGER
A BROTHERHOOD OF MAN

IMAGINE ALL THE PEOPLE
SHARING ALL THE WORLD
YOU…

YOU MAY SAY I’M DREAMER
BUT I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE
I HOPE SOMEDAY YOU JOIN US
AND THE WORLD WILL BE AS ONE


Now did you get what he tries to say? The point that he try to deliver to the entire world…to the entire people including the Muslim people like me and you (if you are a Muslim too). For those who still can’t get it, never mind… I’m translating the lyric to you. (To the Malay language)

BAYANGKANLAH

BAYANGKANLAH SEKIRANYA TIADA SYURGA
IANYA MUDAH SEKIRANYA KAMU MENCUBA (UNTUK MEMBAYANGKAN)
TIADA NERAKA DI BAWAH KITA
(DAN) DIATAS KITA HANYALAH LANGIT (SEMATA-MATA)

BAYANGKAN (JIKA) SEMUA MANUSIA
HIDUP UNTUK HARI INI (DI ATAS DUNIA SEMATA-MATA)
AKU….

BAYANGKANLAH (JIKA) TIADA NEGARA (YANG BERBEZA-BEZA)
TIDAK SUKAR UNTUK MELAKUKANNYA (MEMBAYANGKANNYA)
TIDAK PERLU UNTUK BERBUNUH-BUNUHAN (UNTUK MEMPERTAHANKANNYA)
DAN (KITA) TIDAK PERLU BERAGAMA (BEBAS DARI MEMPERCAYAI TUHAN SERTA SEMUA PERATURANNYA)
BAYANGKAN (JIKA) SEMUA MANUSIA
HIDUP DENGAN AMAN DAN DAMAI
KAU…..

KAU MUNGKIN KATAKAN AKU SANG PEMIMPI (HANYA BERANGAN-ANGAN)
TETAPI KU TIDAK KESEORANGAN(ORANG YANG SEPERTI ITU)
KU HARAPKAN SUATU HARI NANTI KAU AKAN BERSAMAKU (KAMI)
DAN DUNIA INI AKAN MENJADI SATU (SEMUA AKAN BERSATU)

BAYANGKAN (JIKA) TIADA PENJAJAHAN (SIFAT INGIN MENGUASAI)
KU TERTANYA-TANYA SEKIRANYA KAMU MAMPU (UNTUK MELAKUKANNYA)
TIDAK PERLU TAMAK DAN DAHAGAKANNYA (MENGUASAI YANG LAIN)
PERSAUDARAAN SESAMA MANUSIA (BERBAIK-BAIK SESAMA KITA)

BAYANGKAN (JIKA) SEMUA MANUSIA
BERKONGSI DUNIA (KEHIDUPAN) INI
KAU…..

KAU MUNGKIN KATAKAN AKU SANG PEMIMPI (HANYA BERANGAN-ANGAN)
TETAPI KU TIDAK KESEORANGAN (ORANG YANG SEPERTI ITU)
KU HARAPKAN SUATU HARI NANTI KAU AKAN BERSAMAKU (KAMI)
DAN DUNIA INI AKAN MENJADI SATU (SEMUA AKAN BERSATU)

So macam mana. I hope sangat yang korang dah paham apa yang John Lennon nie cuba nak sampaikan. Yeah…..for me, it’s ok if you try to make people concern about how important to living life in peace, how important avoid or to restrict the violent amount us but ‘AND NO RELIGION TOO’ stand for what???

In my opinion, as a Muslim we can listen to this song and try to get a good point on it but please don’t let you influenced by it. Look likes he try to make us to be an atheist. A person who don’t believe in god. And F.Y.I…. ada banyak lagi lagu yang seperti ini. I means lagu-lagu (especially lagu-lagu barat) yang cenderung ke arah kebebasan dalam semua perkara. For simple example, try dengar lagu Pink ‘Rise your glass’ or Katy Perry ‘Firework’. Memang jelas sangat mereka ingin katakan seolah-olah “buatlah sesuka hati kita, we are free to be what we want to be”.

Itu belum lagi lirik-lirik lucah dan yang sangat tak sesuai didengar macam lagu Eminem dan banyak lagi especially the hip-hop song. Sorry if some of you didn’t agree with me but I’m just telling you what I felt. As a conclusion, I think that it’s ok if we enjoy to listen all the song that we like but please be more alert about the lyric. I’m afraid that we were coincidently opprobrious our own God, religion and maybe our own race just by listening and singing the song that we like but we never know the something behind the lyrics.

Renung-renungkan…..
