Viva La Vida – Coldplay

Jika anda penggemar musik yang dibawakan oleh berbagai band dari Inggris, sudahkah anda  menyimak lagu-lagu di album Coldplay, “Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends” ?

Menurut pendapat saya, ini adalah album Coldplay yang terbaik (hingga album terakhir ini). Selain single perdana “Violet Hill”, ada berbagai lagu bagus yang tersebar merata di album ini. “Lovers in Japan”, “Life in Technicolor” dan tentunya -lagu favorit saya- “Viva La Vida”  adalah beberapa di antaranya. “Strawberry Swings” -yang sering diputar ulang oleh adik saya- juga sangat layak untuk disimak.

Pada kesempatan kali ini, saya suguhkan “Viva La Vida” yang isi liriknya bercerita mengenai seseorang yang dahulu pernah menjadi raja penguasa dunia. Unik? Bisa jadi. Tidak lazimnya band lain yang mengumbar kata-kata cinta dan asmara dalam lirik lagu😉

Dari sisi musik, juga tidak kalah unik. Instrumen musik yang dimainkan oleh personel band ini malah tidak terlalu “terdengar”. Sebagian besar musik di lagu ini justru dibalut oleh nuansa orkestra yang sangat kental. Sangat megah dan terkesan “bersemangat”.

Penasaran? Silakan menyimak dan jangan malu-malu untuk turut bernyanyi🙂

Viva La Vida

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
“Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!”

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can’t explain
Once you go there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn’t believe what I’d become

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can’t explain
I know Saint Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can’t explain
I know Saint Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
