Summer Nights

Banjarmasin, 25 Desember 2006

Summer loving had me a blast
Summer loving happened so fast
I met a girl crazy for me
Met a boy cute as can be
Summer days drifting away to oh oh the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car

She swam by me she got a cramp
He swam by me got my suit damp
I saved her life she nearly drown
He showed off splashing around
Summer sun something’s begun but oh oh the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
Was it love at first sight?
Tell me more, tell me more
Did she put up a fight?

Took her bowling in the arcade
We went strolling drank lemonade
We made out under the dock
We stayed out till ten o’clock
Summer fling don’t mean a thing but oh oh the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
But you don’t gotta brag
Tell me more, tell me more
Cause he sounds like a drag

He got friendly holding my hand
She got friendly down in the sand
He was sweet just turned eighteen
Well she was good you know what I mean
Summer heat boy and girl meet but oh oh the summer nights

Tell me more, tell me more
How much dough did he spend?
Tell me more, tell me more
Could she get me a friend?

It turned colder that’s where it ends
So I told her we’d still be friends
Then we made our true love vow
Wonder what she’s doing now

Summer dreams ripped at the seams but oh those summer nights
Tell me more, tell me more

John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John – OST Grease (1978)


Sabtu sore lalu saya nonton film jadul, Grease di MetroTV. Film musikal, dengan jambul John Travolta yang nggilani banget kalo dipakai di masa kini. Cerita film ini sebenarnya biasa-biasa saja, tetapi cara penyampaian ceritanya yang menarik, dengan gabungan musik dan koreografi (namanya juga adaptasi dari drama musikal).

Saya tertarik dengan lagu di atas karena cara mereka menyanyikan di film yang sambil sama-sama ‘bercerita’ walau berjauhan. Sungguh diperlukan kreativitas dan kepekaan bermusik tingkat tinggi dalam menggarap film jenis ini. Salut!
