Ant the classic lady

Akhir-akhir ini selain kembali ke musik pangkuan Ibu Pertiwi (?), gw kembali mencintai musik-musik klasik super jadul. Dan tentu saja lagu terfavorit gw saat ini adalah: The sound of music, Julie Andrew. I really love the music with extremely oldiest way Julie sing this song (?). Rasanya gw selalu merinding setiap dengerin dia nyanyi. Perfect.
Selain itu, Donna Donna from Joan Baez. Sebenernya pertama kali gw denger versi Sita RSD itu, OST Gie. Tapi entah kenapa gw selalu suka versi original. Btw, kemaren gw sempat mampir ke webnya Joan Baez. Tua banget yah dia sekarang, dibanding dulu (Jaijalah ant....)




This is the really inspired lyrics :

Donna Donna (Joan Baez)


On a waggon bound for market
there`s a calf with a mournful eye.
High above him there`s a swallow,
winging swiftly through the sky.

How the winds are laughing,
they laugh with all their might.
Laugh and laugh the whole day through,
and half the summer`s night.

Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna; Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.
Donna, Donna, Donna, Donna; Donna, Donna, Donna, Don.

"Stop complaining!“ said the farmer,
Who told you a calf to be ?
Why don`t you have wings to fly with,
like the swallow so proud and free?“

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered,
never knowing the reason why.
But whoever treasures freedom,
like the swallow has learned to fly.

For me, the song is beautiful. Liriknya deep banget (i like the lyric as John Mayer written, maybe). Terutama baris terakhir itu,.....
