Wake me up when election ends?

(Writer’s Block??? Part 3, read here for writer's block part1 and part2)

This is my first entry in English, and for your information before we get serious about this, I actually got BM July exam because I got 7 in BM, and I wish to take BI ‘August’ paper since my BI was 8 for SPMV even I get A1 for PENDIDIKAN ISLAM and SAINS… woha!, Whatever..

So today, to test my English skill, I would like to write about ‘music video’ where you can’t watch it but you can read it, freak? Never mind because I as a ‘music video director’ think that I am ‘Perasan Busy’ so to make it as simple as possible I just write and you can pretend like reading a video clip and watching inside your brain, so we call this ‘read’ a Youtube, he he..

So before you ‘watch’ this video clip, the first term you must fulfill is, all of you should watch the Greenday(or Blueday?) video clip entitle “Wake Me Up When September Ends" the fourth single from Green Day's seventh studio album, American Idiot. Released on June 13, 2005.

Ok, now we’ll go straight to the point. This video clip is about a teenage couple, played by Jamie Bell and Evan Rachel Wood.

The video focuses on the teenage couple as the boyfriend promises that he never want to leave his girlfriend, scene in the grass field. Later in a lengthy sequence, the girlfriend confronts him about something he did, repeatedly yelling, "How could you do this to me?" Although the audience's initial assumption may be that he was unfaithful, subsequent scenes reveal that he is in fact enlisted in the United States Marine Corps without her knowledge, and he said, :”I do this for us.” And she started to cry badly..

The video then shows the boyfriend in battle in Iraq being ambushed by insurgents. The war scene cuts out with the boyfriend taking cover after being separated from his squad in the ambush. It cuts back to the girlfriend again, where she is crying. Since the war scene suddenly cuts out, the viewer is left to think about what might have happened. Err, just wake me up when September ends..

Ok, done, all of us already know about “wake me up when September ends”. Base on the storyline of the video, it was about the event of 9/11.., Now I’ll rewrite the new lyric and 'redirect' new video clip for this song, so I ‘change’ the title of the song :-

"WAKE ME UP WHEN ELECTION ENDS"

Ops, I’m sorry because last week, Malaysia already passed small election in 3 places, and all end by the results “win-win situations”

Forget about that, this song and video clip appear perhaps to enlighten your mood, whatever…

So, let’s read and watch inside your head.. (please refer Harakah Tabloid for clear visualizing about this video clip)

"WAKE ME UP WHEN ELECTION ENDS"

This video focuses on the teenage couple as the boyfriend promises that he never want to leave his girlfriend. Don’t forget the boy wear a Kopiah and the lady wear Jilbab, Later in a lengthy sequence, the girlfriend confronts him about something he did and repeatedly yelled, "How could you do this to me?, tell me this is just “hot-hot-chicken –shit” Although the audience's initial assumption may be that he was unfaithful, subsequent scenes reveal that he was in fact enlisted in the PAKATAN RAKYAT team without her knowledge, and he said, :”I do this for us.” and she started to cry badly just crazy like a pig(menangis gila babi)...

The video then shows he joined a riot somewhere in Malaysia and suddenly being ambushed by FRU. The 'war' scene cuts out with the boyfriend being detained in ISA . It cuts back to his girlfriend again, where she was crying with poster, FREE ISA. Since the scene suddenly cuts out, the viewers have to think about what might have happened. Err, just wake me up when Election ends lah!..

So take your guitar, and enjoy this song:-

(GREEN OR BLUE DAY LYRICS)

*****

"Wake Me Up When Election Ends"

Khaliff has come and passed
The Slanderer can never last
Wake me up when Election ends

like my Khaliff come to pass
As four years has gone so fast
wake me up when Election ends

Here comes the war again
Between same religion
Renew your sin again
And don’t know who you are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what they lost
Wake me up when election ends

Throw out your Deen again
Like you did when fight began
Wake me up when election ends..


(Repeat chorus until SPR make new announcement about new date of new elections)
