You Drifted Away

Sunday, April 20, 2014



You told me that you love me, the person who drifted away from me. It’s you who don’t know anything about love. You bid me goodbye, the person who drifted away from me. My dear, now I’m standing alone here.” –Park Sang Min, You Drifted Away [translated lyrics]

Jo Young Jin, solois wanita yang terkenal dengan nama panggung Ali, hadir sebagai salah satu penampil dalam episode 129 program acara musik “Immortal Songs 2: Singing the Legend”. Episode tersebut ditayangkan pada tanggal 30 November 2013 di stasiun televisi KBS, serta di channel KBS World pada tanggal 21 Desember 2013. Adalah Park Sang Min, solois pria yang hadir sebagai legenda dalam episode tersebut. Ali membawakan salah satu lagu hits Park Sang Min yang bertajuk “You Drifted Away”, sebagai penampilan terakhir alias penutup berdasarkan hasil undian. Lagu ini Ali persembahkan untuk salah seorang penggemarnya yang telah meninggal dunia.
“You Drifted Away” is a song about the feeling of someone that had been left behind by the person they loved. Orang itu pergi begitu saja setelah menyatakan cintanya. Orang itu hilang begitu saja setelah mengucapkan perpisahannya. Bahkan tanpa sempat menyelami arti cinta bersama, kini tinggallah ia seorang diri di sana. “You told me that you love me, the person who drifted away from me. It’s you who don’t know anything about love. You bid me goodbye, the person who drifted away from me. My dear, now I’m standing alone here.” Bahkan tanpa sempat menyadari bahwa segala yang terjadi adalah nyata, kini tinggallah ia seorang diri di sana. “At night I stare out the window to see if there’s anyone out there. But there’s only a lone streetlight standing.” Begitu saja, cinta berlalu ditelan waktu. Kini tinggallah ia seorang diri bertanya-tanya, di manakah gerangan ia akan menemukan cintanya? “Perhaps, will I find you if I go out into the sea? Perhaps, you’re far above the sky, are you?” Begitu saja, cinta berakhir digilas takdir. “You’re the one who drifted away from me, don’t tell me that there’s love in the sky.”

Park Sang Min merilis “You Drifted Away” pada tahun 1994, sebagai sebuah lagu remake atas versi original yang dirilis pada tahun 1987 oleh sebuah band yang digawangi gitaris Shin Dae Chul, Freedom. “You Drifted Away” became a hit when Park Sang Min remade the song seven years later. Its lyrical melody and sad lyrics combined with Park Sang Min’s sorrowful voice made this song a hit. With her amazing voice, Ali delivered the story of the song very well in the performance. Even the legend himself acknowledged her power in singing. Indeed, “You Drifted Away” is an everlasting rock ballad song. Even though Ali’s remake version is as great as she always does, still I prefer the original version by Park Sang Min. His legendary voice is just adorably irreplaceable.

Perhaps, will I find you if I go out into the sea? Perhaps, you’re far above the sky, are you?” –Park Sang Min, You Drifted Away [translated lyrics]
