Musik Favorit Saya Tahun 1980-an

Wafatnya Michael Jackson beberapa waktu lalu sungguh banyak dampaknya bagi dunia "per-lagu-an" dunia. Lagu-lagu lawas MJ tahun 1980-an tiba-tiba menjadi hit lagi. Bagi saya yang saat ini berumur 40 tahun, ini tentu saja menyenangkan. Anak saya Rizka yang biasanya memutar lagu-lagu baru yang tidak saya kenal, sekarang tiba-tiba ikut memutar lagu-lagu lawas yang saya jadi bisa ikut menikmati. Saat saya SMP tahun 1981 saya mulai menjadi penikmat musik. Dengan modal radio dan tape recorder yang dibelikan orangtua saya di kota kecil Jambi saat itu, saya mulai merenda memori dengan berbagai lagu hits saat itu. Menjadi penikmat musik terus saya lanjutkan hingga akhir masa kuliah saya tahun 1993. Namun setelah menikah dan kemudian memiliki anak pertama tahun 1994-1995 saya terpaksa tidak bisa lagi intensif menikmati dunia musik, hanya jadi pendengar biasa saja.

Jika anda ingin tahu lagu-lagu favorit saya, para penyanyi favorit saya, data tangga lagu Top 10 Billboard berikut ini bisa memberikan gambaran yang sangat jelas. Masih ingat di ingatan ketika saya selalu menunggu acara radio Jakarta Top 10 Billboard yang disiarkan juga oleh radio lokal di Jambi dan kemudian di Samarinda saat saya kuliah.

Bagi anda yang se-"zaman" dengan saya, pasti masih ingat "Endless Love" dari Diana Ross and Lionel Richie, lagu yang tak akan mungkin lekang oleh zaman. Kemudian soundtrack film Flashdance yang merupakan salah satu tonggak penting musik disco, lagunya yang tak mungkin dilupa adalah "What a Feelin" dari Irene Cara. Favorit saya saat itu salah satunya adalah The Police, "Every Breath You Take", slow rock yang manis sekali dengan warna suara vokalisnya yang sangat khas (lupa nama vokalisnya).

Saya tidak suka Prince, itu saya anggap semacam lawannya Michel Jackson yang saya senangi. Satu lagi yang sangat membekas adalah lagu-lagu Phil Collins dan Lionel Richie. Jangan lupa juga saat itu adalah zaman lagu-lagu khusus yang dinyanyikan oleh penyanyi-penyanyi top secara bersamaan seperti "That's What Friends Are For". Kemudian tentu saja saya juga adalah penggemar berat grup rock seperti Starship, Bon Jovi, Guns N' Roses dan Heart.

Masa itu juga adalah masa jaya Madonna yang saya kenal hampir seluruh lagu dari beberapa albumnya. Kemudian Mariah Carey dan Whitney Houston yang suaranya begitu hebat dengan lagu-lagu super bagus. Indahnya masa 80 dan 90-an. Masa muda yang tak mungkin kembali.

Sekedar berbagi, mungkin saat saya sudah tidak ada lagi nanti, anak cucu saya bisa ikut mengenang saya dengan lagu-lagu dan penyanyi favorit yang saya dengarkan over and over saat muda dulu. sekarang sudah tua dan semakin tua...
