The Ready Set – Love Like Woe | Single Review

Saturday, June 5, 2010

The Ready Set – Love Like Woe -- Jordan Witzigreuter adalah singer-songwriter dari Fort Wayne, Indiana, yang merupakan orang di balik The Ready Set, musisi amerika yang mengusung bermacam-macam genre seperti alternative, electronica, dan pop. Meskipun Jordan adalah satu-satunya official member The Ready Set tetapi saat pertunjukkan live, Jordan dibantu oleh tiga orang temannya yaitu Andy Snyder (Bass), Travis Rountree (Drums), dan Keegan Weckler (Guitar).

Pada tanggal 15 Juni 2010 nanti The Ready Set akan meliris studio album yang diberi judul I’m Alive, I’m Dreaming di bawah label Decaydance/Sire Records, sub-labels dari Warner Bros. Records. Single pertamanya adalah Love Like Woe yang diproduseri oleh JR Rotem (Iyaz, Jason Derulo, Sean Kingston, Rihanna, Leona Lewis, Britney Spears).

Single Love Like Woe adalah single up-beat yang jika pertama kali dengar langsung klop di kuping pendengar, sangat catchy dengan sentuhan funky tune. Single ini dibuka dengan intro yang jika diperhatikan punya kesamaan dengan intro fireflies-nya Owl City tapi untuk Love Like Woe durasi intronya relatif sangat singkat dibandingkan dengan fireflies.

Dari awal sampai akhir lagu, Jordan benar-benar mengajak kita menikmati single ini dimana Jordan menyanyi tanpa ada permainan music antara setiap bait lirik lagunya dengan sekekali dibantu oleh backing vocal yang membuat single ini terdengar ramai dan mengasyikkan serta diiringi oleh beat-beat yang mengingat saya dengan beat-beat hip-hop ala ‘Si Kecil’ Justin Bieber. Secara signifikan Love Like Woe memasukkan unsur-unsur auto-tune yang membuat kita tidak asing dengan single yang satu ini jika kamu suka mendengar lagu-lagu dari Owl City, Black Eyed Peas, Metro Station, Kanye West atau bahkan Justin Bieber.

Seperti apapun single Love Like Woe dari The Ready Set ini, sebagai pendengar sangat sayang untuk dilewatkan tentunya. So, enjoy! (aja).

The Ready Set – Love Like Woe Lyrics :

(J-J-J-J-JR)
Woah-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Woah-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
(I kinda feel like it don't make sense)

I'm thinking, baby, you and I are undeniable
But I'm finding now loves unreliable
I'm giving all I got to make you stay
Or am I just a roadblock in your way?

Cause you're a pretty little windstorm on the boulevard
Something like a Sunset, oh you're a shooting star
And I might drive myself insane
If those lips aren't speaking my name

Cause I got some intuition,
Or maybe I'm superstitious
But I think you're a pretty sweet pill that I'm swallowing down
To counter this addiction, you've got me on a mission
Tell me darling, can I get a break somehow?
(How) could I say no?

She's got a love like woe
Woah-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
Girls got a love like woe (la-da-da)
I kinda feel like it don't make sense
Because you're bringing me in and now you're kicking me out again
Loved so strong, then you moved on
Now I'm hung up in suspense,
Because you're bringing me in and then you're kicking me out again

It's like a hurricane, speed train, she's a moving car
Catch her in the fast lane, oh I gotta know,
Can I keep up with her pace?
Kick it into gear when I see that face

You can take up all my time cause you're the only one
That can make a storm cloud break, pulling out the sun
And I can't get caught in the rain
Can I get your lips to speak my name?

Cause I got some intuition,
Or maybe I'm superstitious
But I think you're a pretty sweet pill that I'm swallowing down
To counter this addiction, you've got me on a mission
Tell me darling, can I get a break somehow?
(How) could I say no?

She's got a love like woe
Woah-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
Girls got a love like woe (la-da-da)
I kinda feel like it don't make sense
Because you're bringing me in and now you're kicking me out again
Loved so strong, then you moved on
Now I'm hung up in suspense,
Because you're bringing me in and then you're kicking me out again

Cause we only have one life
The timing and the moment,
All seem so right
So would you say you're mine? (We'll be just fine)
Would you say you're mine? (We'll be just fine)

She's got a love like woe
Woah-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
Girls got a love like woe (la-da-da)
I kinda feel like it don't make sense
Because you're bringing me in and now you're kicking me out again
Loved so strong, then you moved on
Now I'm hung up in suspense,
Because you're bringing me in and then you're kicking me out again

She's got a love like woe
Woah-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
Girls got a love like woe (la-da-da)
I kinda feel like it don't make sense
Because you're bringing me in and now you're kicking me out again
Loved so strong, then you moved on
Now I'm hung up in suspense,
Because you're bringing me in and then you're kicking me out again
