!Crap: 99 Luftballons

*Giliran lagi rajin ajah, sekali entry 2 biji deh! Mana crap semua lagi!*

Ada yang inget gak, sama lagu 99 Luftballons? Lagu jaman jebot (thn 1983-1984) yang dulu dinyanyikan sama Nena ini pernah dipopulerkan lagi sama Goldfinger (thn 2000) – dibikin versi punk. Lagu ini ada 2 versi, Jerman dan Inggris. Sejauh ini, gambaran yang saya dapat dari versi Inggrisnya adalah ini lagu tentang perang. Ternyata, setelah saya baca terjemahan langsung dari versi Jermannya, isinya lebih miris lagi. Monggo silaken dibaca ^^ (terjemahan diambil dari http://www.inthe80s.com/redger2.shtml)

99 Luftballons

Do you have some time for me?
Then I’ll sing a song for you
About 99 balloons
On their way to the horizon
Are you perhaps thinking of me?
Then I’ll sing a song for you
About 99 balloons
And that something (like the war) comes from such a thing (the balloons)

99 balloons
On their way to the horizon
They thought they were UFOs from space
So a general sent
A flying squad out there
To raise the alarm if it was true
Yet there on the horizon were
Only 99 balloons

99 jet airplanes
Each one was a great warrior
Thought that they were Captain Kirk
There were great fireworks
The neighbors didn’t understand anything
And felt immediately felt “pissed off”/provoked
Yet there they shot on the horizon
At 99 balloons

99 war ministers
Matches and petrol cans
Thought that they were clever people
Already caught wind of great spoils [of war]
Shouted: War, and wanted power
Man, who would have thought
That one day it would come to this
Because of 99 balloons

99 years of war
Don’t leave a place for victors
There are no ministers of war any more
No jet planes either
Today I’m doing my rounds
Seeing the world lying in ruins
Found a balloon
Think of you and let it fly

Konyol banget kan? Betapa sesuatu yang besar itu bisa berasal dari sesuatu yang gak penting dan gak prinsip banget. *sigh*
