Lagu Lesbian Pilihan

Posted by alex |

Saya termasuk orang yang buta nada, tapi saya tidak betah jika harus menghabiskan hari tanpa musik. Karena tidak paham nada, saya lebih sering berkonsentrasi pada lirik dibanding musik. Beberapa lagu (menurut saya) bisa dibilang mengandung unsur lesbian, meskipun penyanyinya belum tentu lesbian atau lagunya adalah lagu lesbian beneran. Berikut ini daftar lagu lesbian pilihan (Alex).

Something to Talk About - Bonnie Raitt
Lagu ini bercerita tentang gosip yang beredar ketika dua orang sahabat terlihat “terlalu dekat”. Bonnie Raitt adalah penyanyi country perempuan yang juga pemenang Grammy. Dan buat saya lagu ini terdengar sebagai lagu lesbi karena buat apa juga kalau perempuan sahabatan sama lelaki diomongin? Bagi saya, rasanya lebih pas kalo yang digosipin adalah sesama perempuan.

People are talkin, talking 'bout people
I hear them whisper, you won't believe it
They think we're lovers kept under covers
I just ignore it, but they keep saying
We laugh just a little too loud
We stand just a little too close
We stare just a little too long
Maybe they're seeing, something we don't, Darlin'

Let's give them something to talk about
Let's give them something to talk about
Let's give them something to talk about
How about love?

I feel so foolish, I never noticed
You'd act so nervous, could you be falling for me?
It took a rumor to make me wonder
Now I'm convinced I'm going under
Thinking 'bout you every day
Dreaming 'bout you every night
Hoping that you feel the same way
Now that we know it, let's really show it, Darlin'

Let's give them something to talk about
A little mystery to figure out
Let's give them something to talk about
How about love, love, love, love?


The Promise - Tracy Chapman
Oke, lagu ini sebenarnya nggak ada unsur lesbiannya, tapi saya rasa suara Tracy Chapman ini cucok banget buat lesbi-lesbi yang sedang menjalani hubungan dekat namun tak terjangkau. Dijamin klepek-klepek. Ya nggak, Lakhsmi? :p

If you wait for me then I’ll come for you
Although Ive traveled far
I always hold a place for you in my heart
If you think of me, if you miss me once in awhile
Then I'll return to you
I'll return and fill that space in your heart

Remembering your touch your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting
If you dream of me like I dream of you
In a place thats warm and dark
In a place where I can feel the beating of your heart

Remembering your touch your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
If you'll be waiting
I've longed for you and I have desired
To see your face, your smile
To be with you wherever you are

Remembering your touch your kiss
Your warm embrace
I'll find my way back to you
Please say you'll be waiting

Together again
It would feel so good to be in your arms
Where all my journeys end
If you can make a promise if its one that you can keep, I vow to come for you
If you wait for me and say you'll hold a place for me in your heart

Joan Armatrading: The Weakness in Me
Joan Armatrading adalah pelantun versi original dari lagu yang lesbi banget ini. Lagu ini juga masuk soundtrack The L Word tapi saya lupa season berapa. Cocok buat lesbian yang menjalani hubungan “terlarang”.

I'm not the sort of person who falls in and quickly out of love
But to you, I give my affection, right from the start.
I have a lover who loves me - how could I break such a heart?
Yet still you get my attention.

Why do you come here, when you know I've got troubles enough?
Why do you call me, when you know I can't answer the phone?
And make me lie when I don't want to,
And make someone else some kind of an unknowing fool?
Make me stay when I should not?
If you're so strong then resolve the weakness in me.
Why do you come here, and pretend to be just passing by?
I need to see you - I need to hold you - tightly.

Feeling guilty,
And I'm worried, and I'm waking from a tormented sleep
'Cause this old love, you know it has me bound,
But this new love cuts so deep.
If I choose now, I'm bound to lose out;
One of you is gonna have to fall...
I need you, baby.

Why do you come here, when you know I've got troubles enough?
Why do you call me, when you know I can't answer the phone?
And make me lie when I don't want to,
And make someone else some kind of an unknowing fool?
Make me stay when I should not?
If you're so strong then resolve the weakness in me.
Why do you come here, and pretend to be just passing by?
I need to see you - I need to hold you - tightly.

Melissa Etheridge: Come to My Window
Secara saya penggemar lagu-lagu Melissa Etheridge gitu lho. Tapi ini lagu yang menjadi hit ketika dia coming out pada tahun 1992. Rasanya nyesss banget gitu lho.... lesbi banget deh, walaupun nggak jelas-jelas disebutkan.

Come to my window
Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window I'll be home soon

I would dial the numbers just to listen to your breath
I would stand inside my hell and hold the hand of death
You don't know how far I'd go to ease this precious ache
You don't know how much I'd give
Or how much I can take

Just to reach you
Just to reach you
Just to reach you

Come to my window
Crawl inside, wait by the light of the moon
Come to my window I'll be home soon

I don't care what they think
I don't care what they say
What do they know about this love anyway


Crimson and Clover - Joan Jett and The Blackhearts
Sumpah deh, saya nggak ngerti arti Crimson and Clover. Tapi saat Joan Jett menyanyikannya, kok jadi terdengar lesbi ya? Apalagi ketika lagu ini jadi soundtrack film Monster-nya Charlize Theron. Jadilah lagu ini makin lesbi lagi.

Crimson and clover
Ah, now I dont hardly know her
But I think I could love her
Crimson and clover

Ah when she comes walking over
Now I've been waitin to show her
Crimson and clover over and over

Yeah, my, my such a sweet thing
I wanna do everything
What a beautiful feeling
Crimson and clover over and over

KT Tunstall – Suddenly I See
Pertama kali saya mendengar lagu KT Tunstall ini ketika Katherine McPhee menyanyikan salah satu lagunya dalam America Idol. Penasaran, akhirnya saya cari lagu tersebut, tapi bukan lagu yang ini. Sebenarnya Suddenly I See bukan lagu lesbian, tapi kalo dipaksain sih bisa :).

Her face is a map of the world, is a map of the world
You can see she's a beautiful girl, she's a beautiful girl
And everything around her is a silver pool of light
The people who surround her feel the benefit of it
It makes you calm she holds you captivated in her palm

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

I feel like walking the world, Like walking the world
You can hear she's a beautiful girl, She's a beautiful girl
She fills up every corner like she's born in black and white
Makes you feel warmer when you're trying to remember
What you heard, She likes to leave you hanging on her word

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

And she's taller than most And she's looking at me
I can see her eyes looking from a page in a magazine
Oh she makes me feel like I could be a tower
A big strong tower
She got the power to be, the power to give, the power to see

When She Loved Me – Sarah McLachlan
Coba lihat tag “lagu lesbian” di Amazon.com, pasti nama Sarah McLachlan masuk di dalamnya. Entah bagaimana Sarah membuat sebagian besar lagunya terdengar lesbi. Saya bimbang antara memasukkan lagu ini atau Adia, tapi berdasarkan lirik saya rasa lagu yang jadi soundtrack Toy Story 2 ini terdengar lebih pas.

When somebody loved me,
Everything was beautiful.
Every hour we spent together,
Lives within my heart.

And when she was sad,
I was there to dry her tears,
And when she was happy so was I.
When she loved me.

Through the summer and the fall,
We had each other that was all.
Just she and I together,
Like it was meant to be.

And when she was lonely,
I was there to comfort her,
And I knew that she loved me.

So the years went by,
I stayed the same.
But she began to drift away.
I was left alone.
Still I waited for the day,
When she'd say "I will always love you"

Lonely and forgotten,
Never thought she'd look my way,
And she smiled at me and held me,
Just like she used to do.
Like she loved me,
When she loved me.

When somebody loved me,
Everything was beautiful,
Every hour we spent together,
Lives within my heart.
When she loved me

Itu tadi daftar lagu pilihan saya sebagai lagu lesbian. Saya sengaja tidak memasukkan penyanyi-penyanyi yang memang sudah terkenal lesbi seperti Tatu, Tegan and Sara, Indigo Girls, atau kd. Lang... biar rada susah dikit daftarnya, hehehe...

Kalau ada yang kepingin denger lagunya, coba cari di http://www.radioblogclub.com/ atau di http://www.youtube.com/

"when somebody loved me" si sarah itu pertamanya di telinga gue memang 'lesbi' banget. tapi trus adek gue bilang, itu lagu tentang ibundanya sarah (entah bener entah nggak).

jadi sekarang klo dengar lagu itu, ngebayangin bunda deh.
