#musicthisweek – Gold Snafu

Meski beberapa hari terakhir Kota Malang dihiasi sedikit cipratan ludah awan mendung, tetapi saya justru sering berpetualang mencari lagu bernuansa musim panas. Dan saya menyempatkan diri untuk membuat playlist “Summer Days” di akun Spotify.

Sebenarnya saya tidak sengaja menemukan lagu ini. Berawal dari mencari lagu-lagu bergenre Reggae di Youtube. Dari Magic!, UB40, dan lainnya. Muncul lah thumbnail Sticky Fingers – How to Fly (ini enak juga), akhirnya saya dengarkan berulang-ulang. Dan saya dengarkan satu persatu lagu mereka. Berhentilah saya di lagu Gold Snafu.

Btw, Sticky Fingers ini band asal Sydney, Australia.

SNAFU sendiri adalah istilah, atau tepatnya singkatan dari “Situation Normal: All Fucked Up”, yang kalau tidak salah (mohon dikoreksi) salah satu singkatan di dalam kode morse/militer tapi dalam kategori “guyonan” atau slang.

Wikipedia SNAFU:

It means that the situation is bad, but that this is a normal state of affairs. It is typically used in a joking manner to describe something that’s working as intended. The acronym is believed to have originated in the United States Marine Corps during World War II.

1940s: acronym from situation normal: all fouled (or fucked ) up .

Coba simak live concert Sticky Fingers – Gold Snafu berikut, dan saya merasa iri dengan kerumunan penontonnya. Ah, jangan lupa pakai earphone biar bisa lebih menghayati. Heheh.

Lirik:

[Verse 1]
For some this is all a game
Don’t take me just a fool
Won’t you just stay the fuck out of my way
Faking smiles and acting all the cool

From the sidelines to the front wide
I still be saving up for them new shoes
All the while I’ll be wishing it’s alright
Cause my main man on the right plays it good

[Hook 1]
I see the sunrise getting high
I wish I was next to you
So coming down it’s alright
Stumble through your gold snafu

[Hook 2]
Yeah, for the first time in my life
I seen them velvet skies
And all that hurt was froze in ecstasy
I teach you how to fly

Forever’s overthrown
And everybody comes alive
It’s as simple as it’s sold
And sexy as a slippery water slide

I see the sunrise getting high
I wish I was next to you
So coming down it’s alright
Stumble through your gold snafu

[Hook 1]
I see the sunrise getting high
I wish I was next to you
So coming down it’s alright
Stumble through your gold snafu

[Ourto]
So coming down it’s alright
Stumble through your gold snafu
