Sendiri, Sepi, Yakin: Psikofilosofi Musik Oasis

notangka.net – Oasis memiliki beberapa lagu berirama riang dan seru yang merayakan hura-hura, bersenang-senang, dan kebersamaan. Telinga kita ikut menari ketika menikmati lagu Cum On Feel the Noise, F**king in the Bushes, Bonehead’s Bank Holiday, Shock of the Lightning, Round are Way, Cloudburst, Stay Young (soundtrack film ‘The Faculty’-nya Elijah Wood), Supersonic, Roll with It, Acquiesce, Some Might Say, dsbnya.

Tapi lepas dari nuansa rock n roll yang hura-hura beberapa ramai, tidak sedikit juga lagu memiliki irama rock dari Oasis yang menceritakan nuansa sendiri serta sendu (dengan kepercayaan serta ego tinggi yang senantiasa inheren dalam lirik mereka) walau aransemen musiknya riang serta bertempo tengah/cepat, seumpama :

Fade Away (“I’m gonna paint you a picture, coz I don’t think you live around here no more. I’ve never ever seen the key to the door. We only get what we will settle for. While we’re leaving, the dreams we had as children fade away…”)

Live Forever (“Lately did you ever feel the pain, in the morning rain, as it soaks you to be bone? … maybe I will never be all the things that I wanna be … I think you’re the same as me, we see things they’ll never see…you and I are gonna live forever”)

Rock n Roll Star (“I live my life for the stars that shine. People said it’s juicet a waste of time … In my mind my dreams are real. Now you concern about the way I feel. Tonight, I am a rock n roll star. ”)

Banyak lagu Oasis yang memiliki irama melankolik melodik makin menonjolkan nuansa sendiri serta sendu itu :

Going Nowhere (“Wanna be wild coz my life’s so tame. Here am I, going nowhere on a train. Here am I, growing older in the rain. ”) – yang tidak terlupakan dari lagu ini yaitu iringan tuba, biola serta pianonya.

Half the World Away (I would like to leave this city. This old town don’t smell to pretty and I can feel the warning signs running around my mind. … So what do you say? You can’t give me the dreams that are mine anyway. You’re half the world away. ”) – dinyanyikan Noel dengan iringan gitar akustik serta piano.

Rockin’ Chair (“All my life, I’ve tried to find another way. … All my life, I’ve tried to make a better day. It’s hard enough being alone. … Its hard enough sitting there. … It’s all too much for me to take, when you’re not there. ”) – gitar melodi akustiknya di sela-sela nyanyian Liam very enjoyable.

Talk Tonight (“I wanna talk tonight, until the morning light, about how you saved my life. You and me see how we are. ”) – cuma disertai gitar akustik, dengan latar sedikit menggema.

– ke-4 lagu diatas mempunyai arti kerinduan yang implisit. Kerinduan pada seorang atau suatu hal, imaji yang berkejaran saat kita tengah merenung sendiri. Lagu-lagu sendu ini dapat juga didengar dari Waiting for the Rapture, Underneath the Sky, To Be Someone, D’you Wanna be a Spaceman, Sad Song, Who Feels Love, Don’t Look Back in Anger, Married with Children, Take Me Away (lagu sedih yang disumbangkan ke gabungan album donasi untuk korban perang Kosovo), Stop Crying Your Heart Out (soundtrack film ‘The Butterfly Effect’-nya Ashton Kutcher), Stand By Me, serta Don’t Go Away. Lagu ‘Talk Tonight’ serta ‘Going Nowhere’ sendiri dicipta Noel dalam kondisi gamang serta sendiri : ‘Talk Tonight’ menceritakan pertemuannya yang sangat terkesan dengan seseorang wanita waktu Noel melarikan diri dari tour karna geram, serta ‘Going Nowhere’ ditulisnya waktu sendiri di satu kereta.

Diluar itu, ada pula lagu rock classic Oasis yang menurut saya timeless, dengan aransemen yang ciri khas di masing-masing lagu, masih tetap dengan lirik simpel yang reflektif serta menceritakan jiwa-jiwa kesepian, keteguhan, sekalian sekelumit romantisme :

Whatever (“I’m free to be whatever I. Whatever I choose and I’ll sing the blues if I want. I’m free to say whatever I. Whatever I like if it’s wrong or right it’s alright. … Whatever you do, whatever you say, yeah, I know it’s alright. ”) – The greatest part about this song, aside from its universal lyrics, is the violin and its beautifully sounded orchestra. My main soundtrack of life.

The Masterplan (“All we know is that we don’t know how it’s gonna be, please brother let it be. Life on the other hand won’t let us understand why we’re all part of the masterplan. ”)

Wonderwall (”There are many things that I would like to say to you, but I don’t know how. I said maybe you’re gonna be the one that saves me. And afterall, you’re my wonderwall. ”)

Cast no Shadow (“Bound with all the weights of all the words he has to say. Change to all the places that he never wished to say. As he faced the sun he cast no shadow. ”) – this is a breath-taking music. Oasis’ wisest song, I may say.

Seingat saya, kalimat yang banyak didapati dalam lirik lagu Oasis ada 5 jenis :

kalimat afirmasi yakin seperti “alright” (“I know it’s alright”/”it’s gonna be alright”), “a better day”, dll.

ungkapan sendu/sepi (“you bring me down I think you’re rude”/sitting on my own”/”he walks along the open road of love and life – surviving if he can”/”you and me what’s going on? ”/”in a lonely place”/”won’t you take me to the edge of night? ” dll.)

gambaran parodik/ironi (“no more cocaine it’s only brown choke”/“I hate the way that you are…”/”I was looking for some action but all I found was cigarettes and alcohol”/”but my God woke up on the wrong side of His bed” dll.)

arogansi/yakin diri (“you wanna be me? ”/you wanna be who you be if you’re coming with me”/”where were you while we were getting high? ” dll.)

petuah (“it’s better people live one another”/”don’t look back in anger”/”there’s nothing more to be if you can be the remedy who heals love” dll.)

Lagu-lagu Oasis senantiasa mempunyai nilai inheren mengenai optimisme, keyakinan diri, serta harga diri. Nilai ini senantiasa tersirat dalam tiap-tiap lirik lagu mereka, walau konteks lagu itu bercerita mengenai rasa kehilangan, kesepian, kerinduan, rasa sedih, keceriaan, atau parodi keangkuhan.
