(I've Had) The Time of My Life, Ngehits Bersama Dirty Dancing

Siapa yang pernah muda di tahun 1987? Pasti ingat film ini: Dirty Dancing. Film ini mempopulerkan Patrick Swayze dan lagu yang menjadi soundtracknya, (I've Had) The Time of My Life.


Dirty Dancing berkisah tentang seorang gadis remaja yang menjalin hubungan dengan seorang instruktur dansa yang ditemuinya saat liburan musim panas. Ditulis oleh Eleanor Bergstein dengan sutradara Emile Ardolino. Selain Patrick Swayze, film ini dibintangi Jennifer Grey, Cynthia Rhodes, dan Jerry Orbach. Awalnya banyak pihak pesimis dengan film karena pemainnya tak terkenal, kecuali legenda Broadway, Jerry Orbach yang hanya mendapat peran pendukung. Tak dinyana, Dirty Dancing menjadi box office. Hingga tahun 2009, film ini telah meraup lebih dari 214.000.000 dolar AS di seluruh dunia. Film ini juga disebut-sebut sebagai film pertama yang sukses menjual lebih dari satu juta kopi DVD Home Video.

Suksesnya film tersebut dibarengi dengan larisnya singel (I've Had) The Time of My Life. Lagu ini, bersama lagu-lagu lain yang menjadi soundtrack, diproduksi oleh Jimmy Ienner. Lagu yang dibawakan Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes ini berhasil mengantongi dua multi-platinum dan berhasil memenangkan Golden Globe dan Academy Award untuk kategori Best Original Song, serta Grammy Award untuk kategori Best Duet pada tahun 1988.

(I've Had) The Time of My Life

Boy: Now I've had the time of my life
No I never felt like this before
Yes I swear it's the truth
and I owe it all to you

Girl: 'Cause I've had the time of my life
and I owe it all to you

Boy: I've been waiting for so long
Now I've finally found someone
To stand by me

Girl: We saw the writing on the wall
As we felt this magical fantasy

Both: Now with passion in our eyes
There's no way we could disguise it secretly
So we take each other's hand
'Cause we seem to understand the urgency

Boy: just remember

Girl: You're the one thing

Boy: I can't get enough of

Girl: So I'll tell you something

Both:This could be love because

(CHORUS)
Both: I've had the time of my life
No I never felt this way before
Yes I swear it's the truth
And I owe it all to you
'Cause I've had the time of my life
And I've searched through every open door
'Til I found the truth
And I owe it all to you

Girl: With my body and soul
I want you more than you'll ever know

Boy: So we'll just let it go
Don't be afraid to lose control

Girl: Yes I know whats on your mind
When you say:
"Stay with me tonight."

Boy: Just remember
You're the one thing

Girl: I can't get enough of

Boy: So I'll tell you something

Both: This could be love because

(CHORUS)
Both: 'Cause I had the time of my life
No I've never felt this way before
Yes I swear it's the truth
And I owe it all to you
'Cause I've had the time of my life
And I've searched through every open door
Till I found the truth
and I owe it all to you

*Instrumental*

Boy: Now I've had the time of my life
No I never felt this way before

(Girl: Never Felt this way)

Boy: Yes I swear it's the truth
and I owe it all to you

Both: 'Cause I had the time of my life
And I've searched through every open door
Till I've found the truth
and I owe it all to you

Both: "cause I've had the time of my life
No I've never felt this way before
Yes I swear it's the truth
And I owe it all to you
