Mixtape: Happily Ever After

Berminggu-minggu lalu, seorang kawan mengirimkan sebuah pesan singkat ke ponsel saya. “Sit, lagu-lagu yang wajib ada di pernikahanmu besok apa?” begitu tanyanya. Pertanyaannya terasa sangat sulit waktu itu. Meski saya tetap memberinya beberapa judul lagu. Hari ini, saya memikirkan kembali pertanyaan kawan saya itu. Hari ini, saya dapatkan lagi beberapa lagu yang wajib ada di pernikahan saya nanti. Oya, dengan senang hati saya kutipkan beberapa baris lirik lagu-lagu itu untukmu.

The Cranberries  --  Dreams
Oh, my life/Is changing every day/In every possible way.
And oh, my dreams/It's never quite as it seems
'Cause you're a dream to me/Dream to me.

Stevie Wonders – I Just Called To Say I Love You
But what it is/Though old so new
To fill your heart like no three words could ever do
I just called to say I love you/I just called to say how much I care       

Barry Louis Polisar – All I Want Is You
All I want is you, will you stay with me?
Hold me in your arms and sway me like the sea.
If you were the wood, I'd be the fire.
If you were the love, I'd be the desire.

Kath Bloom – Come Here
Have i never laid down by your side?
Baby, let’s forget about this pride
Come here. Come here.

Slow Club – Dance Till Morning Light
I can tell you that there is no pearl in this clam
Or a diamond maybe, I stole its seed
But it was only to try and get you home with me
When there's always that someone who'll be easier on your eye
So forget the politics of living alone and just dance til the morning light

Beirut – Postcard From Italy
And I will love to see that day
That day is mine
When she will marry me outside
With the willow trees

Feist – Mushaboom
I got a man to stick it out
And make a home from a rented house
And we'll collect the moments one by one
I guess that's how the future's done

Katty McCarty – Living Life
Hold me like a mother would
Like I've always known somebody should
Although tomorrow don't look that good

Zee Avi – Just You and Me
Well, baby i never did stop you from going out to explore
We can do it all together from the colds of the poles
to the tropics of Borneo

Jack Johnson – Better Together
And how come it's so hard?
It's not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing/It's always better when we're together

Meski pernikahan itu masih jadi rahasia semesta, tak apalah saya membayangkan saat itu sambil mendengarkan lagu-lagu ini. Sembari tersenyum (atau termenung) saat ada lirik yang menyentuh saya. Sembari mengulang-ngulang pernyataan Godard –yang akan saya ucapkan ke laki-laki saya kelak: “To be faithful means to act as if time doesn't exist.

Catatan: Memutar mixtape di hari pernikahan itu jauh lebih simpel dan hemat kan?
