Cheese, Ungkapan Kegembiraan The Mo


The Mo atau biasa disebut Mo saja adalah grup asal Belanda yang cukup dikenal pada era 80-an. Mungkin namanya tak seberkibar grup-grup lain pada masa itu. Tapi keunikan yang mereka tampilkan mampu memikat hati penikmat aliran new wave yang mereka bawakan pada masa itu.

 
Dibentuk pada 1979 Mo digawangi oleh sang pendiri, Clement dan Huub de Lange bersaudara, Heili Helder, dan Harm Bieger. Dua tahun berkarya mereka sanggup mencapai Top 10 dari album pertama mereka yang melahirkan hit ‘Nancy‘ dan tentu saja ‘Fred Astaire‘. Namun pada tahun kesuksesan itu pula mereka bubar. Harm mencoba menghidupkan kembali grup ini dengan formasi baru: Linda Bloemhard, Ton van der Meer, Hans Nieuwint, Harm Bieger, Eddie Conard, dan Willem Ennes.

Formasi ini sanggup bertahan hingga 1985 dan menelurkan 2 album: ‘Ha! Ha! The Sound Of Laughing‘ dan ‘Stop Staring‘. Pada masa ini ‘Cheese‘ dan ‘Asia‘ menjadi hit yang disukai. Tapi rupanya itu tak cukup membuat mereka bertahan. Setelah peluncuran ‘Stop Staring‘ merekapun say goodbye pada penggemarnya.

I wonder what is wrong with me
They never show some sympathy
Pointing fingers at my person
Telling me I should learn

They say I'm pretty but so cool
A sort of instant pleasure fool
They hurt me so and that's so cruel
But I just keep on smiling

It seems that I'm not wanted here
I say goodbye and run in fear
'Cause their talking starts again
Hear them whisper, women, men

I thought they liked me very much
But they throw me out on the spot
I can't say I still care a lot
I just keep on smiling

Smiling is my way out
When I'm lonely or in doubt
Crying doesn't cheer you up
Smiling, keep on walking

Smiling is my way out
When I'm lonely or in doubt
Crying doesn't cheer you up
Smiling, keep on walking

What have I done
That makes people get me on the run?
It's not the kick or the fun
It seems they just don't like me

Well, then it's time to leave you
That's the only way to sleep
I close my eyes and dream a dream
That makes me wake up smiling

Smiling is my way out
When I'm lonely or in doubt
Crying doesn't cheer you up
Smiling, keep on walking

Smiling is my way out
When I'm lonely or in doubt
Crying doesn't cheer you up
Smiling, keep on walking

Smiling is my way out
When I'm lonely or in doubt
Crying doesn't cheer you up
Smiling, keep on walking

Smiling is my way out
When I'm lonely or in doubt
Crying doesn't cheer you up
Smiling, keep on walking
