    They released mv teaser for each member, just like Everyday, Kachuusha. 2 members every day, so I guess we'll get the mv in January 20th or later. You can check all of them on their YT channel.

    so there is this thing where some fans insisted on giving the song a chant, while the other side believed that this song is best without chant. quite funny to see the exchange between the two sides lol

    personally I'm on the no-chant side, though. Chant will only ruin this delicate song.

    Chant is a fan culture so IMO if they want to do it go ahead and do it if they don't want to do it then don't do it, I mean JK nemurihime and Nagai Hikari aren't supposed to have any chant in the original version IIRC but the local fans just go ahead and do it. What I don't like is the passive aggressive comment from management (or was it the composer I forgot) saying this song shouldn't be ruined by chant. If they don't want fans to chant the song then just say it outright or just use the member to influence fans to sing together than doing chant.

    The single even hasn't released yet but there are many people doing a cover.


    Ok, and I don't know that much how Indonesian think about the song but, we get so much positive feedback from international fans. Thailand, Japan, The Philippines, and I even saw some good comment in Spanish and Germany.

    For sing-along and karaoke purposes.

    RAPSODI
    RHAPSODY
    - Intro -

    Verse 1:
    Ku lihat ada yang bersinar
    I saw something sparkled
    di kedua bola matamu
    In both your eyes
    Kau buat malam gelap ini
    You made this dark eve
    Jadi penuh cahaya
    be filled with lights
    terang kilau pesona
    bright enchanting sparkle

    Chorus 1:
    Kasih, andai angan ku bersuara
    Love, if my thoughts had a voice
    dia 'kan bernyanyi
    they would sing
    rapsodi indah yang 'kan bermuara
    a beautiful rhapsody that would lead
    di fajar hati
    to the dawn of heart
    Kelingking kita berjanji
    Our pinky finger oathed
    Jari manis jadi saksi
    The ring finger be the witness
    Bahagia
    Blissful
    Hingga sang bumi
    ' till (when) the earth
    enggan berputar lagi
    is reluctant to turn anymore

    - Interlude -

    Verse 2:
    Kau buat aku sempurna
    You perfected me
    saat kau berkata "iya"
    Oh, kasih ku...
    when you said "yes"
    Oh, my love...
    Kau izin kan ku berlaga
    You allowed me to contend
    mengarungi dunia
    to cross the world
    di sisi mu s'lamanya
    by your side forever

    Chorus 2:
    Kasih, andai angan ku bersuara
    Love, if my thoughts had a voice
    dia 'kan bernyanyi
    they would sing
    rapsodi indah yang 'kan bermuara
    a beautiful rhapsody that would lead
    di fajar hati
    to the dawn of heart
    Kelingking kita berjanji
    Our pinky finger oathed
    Jari manis jadi saksi
    The ring finger be the witness
    Bahagia
    Blissful
    Hingga sang bumi
    'till (when) the earth
    tak berputar lagi
    doesn't turn anymore

    Bridge:
    Kita saling bersandar
    We lean on each other
    Hingga bumi tak berputar
    ' till (when) the world doesn't turn
    Cinta kita takkan pudar
    S'lamanya...
    Our love shan't fade
    Forever...
    Selamanya
    Forever

    Pre chorus:
    Kasih,
    dengar angan ku bersuara

    Love,
    listen to the voice my thoughts made

    di fajar hati
    in the dawn of heart
    Kelingking kita berjanji
    Our pinky finger oathed
    Jari manis jadi saksi
    Ring finger be the witness
    Bahagia 'tuk selamanya..
    Kasih...
    Blissful forever...
    Love...

    Chorus 3:
    Kasih, andai angan ku bersuara
    Love, if my thoughts had a voice
    dia 'kan bernyanyi
    they would sing
    rapsodi indah yang 'kan bermuara
    a beautiful rhapsody that would lead
    di fajar hati
    to the dawn of heart
    Kelingking kita berjanji
    Our pinky finger oathed
    Jari manis jadi saksi
    The ring finger be the witness
    Bahagia
    Blissful
    Hingga sang bumi
    'till (when) the earth
    tak berputar lagi
    doesn't turn anymore

    Chorus 4:
    Kasih, andai angan ku bersuara
    Love, if my thoughts had a voice
    dia 'kan bernyanyi
    Di sisi mu s'lamanya...
    they would sing
    By your side forever...
    rapsodi indah yang 'kan bermuara
    a beautiful rhapsody that would lead
    di fajar hati
    to the dawn of heart
    Kelingking kita berjanji
    'kan berjanji...
    Our pinky finger oathed
    would oath...
    Jari manis jadi saksi
    jadi saksi...
    The ring finger be the witness
    be the witness...
    Bahagia
    Blissful
    Hingga sang bumi
    'till (when) the earth
    enggan berputar lagi
    is reluctant to turn anymore

    Should we add the complete credit information in the Wiki ?

    Oh yeah, I think this song seems will be viral inside and outside Indonesia. Of course, a MNL48 member just tried to cover this song. Should another sisgroup try to cover this song as their next single (start from MNL48) first ? I wish that Aki-P can learn how to make "a simple song" but can be viral.

    I think, JKT48 should ask Papa T. Bob to create the next original song (not the children song, although he is the popular children songwriter) for them at least as a(n) coupling/album song.

    So, JKT48 have had so many songs from AKB48 Group in Japan and just recently got two new original songs (other than Lantang). And I think it is a good idea if they ask him to create a new song(or some new songs). But we also need another person to compose and arrange the song. (I mean other than Laleilmano).

    sorry, the "him" you refer to, is?? AkiP?? Or like the above person mention, Papa T Bop???
    also, I think it's a good move to experiment with different composers in the future, espc if they're trying different genres. If they could get Melly Goeslaw in the future, i'm sure Jkt would skyrocket

    Emmm... I very like Sweet & Bitter rather than Rapsodi; somehow, some/few parts of this song (especially in intro and reff) make me remember the opening BGM of Harvest Moon Back to Nature... :drool: BTW, Dare ga Futari is a better song too in this single... ;)

    No one gonna mentions Gesu na Yume? It's good tho, I like the vocal differences between Gaby and Feni.

    Oh, and it's out

    Feni's vocal is somehow very smooth for that song. :/

    I like the song when I first heard it. But watching the MV makes the song 10x better

    Ok so, no one is gonna update JKT48 wiki? I'm still seeing that JKT48 Circus Part 4 DC, Joy Kick Tears, and Rapsodi don't have a cover. And also, Idol no Yoake.

    Story behind of this song by Fay Ismail (including the prerelease version of this song reff and demo):
    https://www.instagram.com/p/B7pdEyjgEGX/?igshid=145vt2fwvwzy5

    25/01/20: Some parts of Sweet & Bitter, Menanti, and Gesuna Yume lyric papers (Annisa Pontjo's note) just got uploaded in Fay Ismail and Annisa Pontjo's IG Story, including the music notes which is scratched in the paper. Probability, Rapsodi was started to be created before March 22, 2019 (Ilman Ibrahim Isa's IG Story, uploading an image contains audio file (acoustic + guitar and just "nanana")).

    26/01/20: Another lyric and song note comes from his IG, the song is Dare ga Futari wo Deawaseta no ka ? Overall, I get surprised because there are few words (in some songs, especially the coupling songs) that aren't standard or somehow... ummm... Eg. Chocola, Hipotesa, etc... Well, I don't care about those things; but overall, I give 4/5 (rating) for this single.

    Love the song and MV! Even though I feel the MV is too zoomed in I can't see the whole scenery, it's still amazing to see JKT is improving so much to gain mainstream attention.

    I don't know what scale they used to determine the success of the single since the digital charts are quite tricky to be predicted, but hope this single marks their continuing effort to use more local-oriented taste. I always find Jpop inspired songs from Indonesia are super catchy, so I look forward to what they come up in the next releases.
