U2 and Berlin

Denger lagu ini, inget masa-masa di Berlin..pagi hari jam 6 menerobos hujan salju yang dingin menggigit menuju kampus, mengejar kuliah jam 7. Tidak ada alasan untuk telat. Kalau telat lebih dari 15 menit, gak boleh masuk. Kalau gak masuk lebih dari 3 kali, akibatnya tidak diperkenankan ikut ujian..
Dosennya galak bener. Jerman tulen, sepertinya turunan bangsawan, dari namanya: Frau Doktor G. Deipenbrock.

Dari lyricnya lagu ini seolah mengingatkan kita agar jangan merasa jadi orang paling merana didunia. *kesian deh lo! 

Buatku, beberapa baitnya betul-betul bisa membangkitkan semangat kuliah yang hampir pudar gara-gara si dosen galak ini. Bagaimana tidak, kuliah 3 semester, 2 semester mesti ikut kuliah dia, yang tidak semua orang suka: EU business law.

Meski ujiannya open book, tapi selalu bikin pusing. Karena rujukannya adalah EU Laws and Directive, German Law dan Corporate law, dimana menurutku semua law itu hampir semua pasal-pasalnya bikin bingung. Jadi yang terbayang kalau ujian atau pas quiz adalah muka-muka hakim yang galak dan mengenakan wig warna putih duduk di singgasana sangarnya.

Lagu ini juga berkesan karena alunannya setia mengiringi langkahku dalam mencari tambahan uang saku buat keliling Europe. Malam-malam pulang dari Eurotape, duduk sambil terkantuk di U-Bahn yang membawaku pulang ke stasiun Nollendorf. Ah, semua begitu berkesan..

It was also kind of mengingatkanku pada seseorang yang pernah mengisi hari-hariku. You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere, baby

Well yeah, I’ve moved on!

Hampir semua lagu dari album bertitel All That You can’t leave behind ini enak didengar. Inspirational.

Terima kasih Bono and team, terima kasih my blue Sony disc Man.

Stuck in a Moment
I’m not afraid of anything in this world
There’s nothing you can throw at me
That I haven’t already heard
I’m just trying to find a decent melody
A song that I can sing in my own company

I never thought you were a fool
But darling, look at you, ohh
You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight
These tears are going nowhere, baby

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And now you can’t get out of it
Don’t say that later will be better
Now you’re stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it

I will not forsake, the colors that you bring
But the nights you filled with fireworks
They left you with nothing
I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me
I listen through your ears and through your eyes I can see

And you are such a fool
To worry like you do, ohh
I know it’s tough and you can never get enough
Of what you don’t really need now, my oh my

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it
Oh love, look at you now
You’ve got yourself stuck in a moment
And now you can’t get out of it

I was unconscious, half asleep
The water is warm till you discover how deep
I wasn’t jumping for me it was a fall
It’s a long way down to nothing at all

You’ve got to get yourself together
You’ve got stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it
Don’t say that later will be better
Now you’re stuck in a moment
And you can’t get out of it

And if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if our way should falter
Along the stony pass

And if the night runs over
And if the day won’t last
And if your way should falter
Along the stony pass
It’s just a moment
This time will pass….
