Fastball-The Way

Sedang Sherrina memandu, tetiba terdengar lagu ni di radio. Wooshhh….terasa macam kembali ke tahun 90an. To be exact, rasanya tahun pertama di UTMKL, 1998…. zaman dok asrama di blok APA. Zaman fly ke cybercafe di Jalan Semarak sebab ketagihan mIRC pastu lupa pagar tutup kol 12 malam. Sprint depan pak guard, main kejar-kejar celah bangunan sebelum lari masuk blok. Man…..masa ni semua orang dengar lagu ni. Macam berhantu ler. Siap beli kaset tu. Siap hafal lirik. Sebab apa suka? Lagu dia catchy dan ada story.

They made up their minds
And they started packing
They left before the sun came up that day
An exit to eternal summer slacking
But where were they going Without ever knowing the way?
They drank up the wine
And they got to talking
They now had more important things to say
And when the car broke down They started walking
Where were they going without ever knowing the way?

CHORUS:

Anyone could see The road that they walk on is paved in gold
And It’s always summer, they’ll never get cold
They’ll Never get hungry
They’ll never get old and gray
You can see their shadows Wandering off somewhere
They won’t make it home
But they really don’t care
They wanted the highway
They’re happier there today , today

The children woke up
And they couldn’t find ’em
They Left before the sun came up that day
They just drove off
And left it all behind ’em
But Where were they going Without ever knowing the way?

Anyone could see The road that they walk on is paved in gold
And It’s always summer, they’ll never get cold
They’ll Never get hungry
They’ll never get old and gray
You can see their shadows Wandering off somewhere
They Won’t make it home
But they really don’t care
They wanted the highway
They’re happy there today , today (repeat)

Bila dengar, rasa macam menonton satu kisah. Ni yang aku suka ada Wikipedia ni. Korang baca nih:

“The single “The Way” stayed on top of Billboard’s Modern Rock chart for seven weeks, and was a top five hit on Billboard’s Top 40 chart. Scalzo was inspired to write the song in 1997, after reading a news article about an elderly couple who had disappeared in Texas. The couple was on their way to a family reunion when they disappeared. Scalzo imagined that they began reminiscing and decided to take off on their own romantic trip; however, the true story wasn’t so romantic. The elderly woman had actually had Alzheimers, and the man was recovering from brain surgery. The real-life couple had veered off the road in their RV and were found dead at the bottom of a canyon.”

Jom layan videoclip lagu ni. Zaman dulu mana ada YouTube, baru skarang Sherrina tau camni rupanya VC lagu ni. Sempoi seh.

Yang best tu, ramai gak mencuba bakat menghasilkan cover version lagu ni. Semenjak ada YouTube ni, banyak le bakat terbenam dapat diperkenalkan di YouTube. Ada yang bagus, ada yang hancus. Tapi ni ada 2 cover yang membuatkan Sherrina rasa sekarang gak nak gi sign-up kelas blaja main gitar. Serius best giler!
