What’s Up? What’s Goin On ???

12 Feb

Hey, remember the 1993 runaway hit from Linda Perry/Four Non-Blondes that goes like this……. “And i say, heeeyyyyy hey hey hey hey….What’s Goin On….. !!!!”

If you do, good for you. I always thot it was a rad song back then. It was the shit back in 94 when i was in primary six. 10 years later i came across the lyrics to the song and i realized it had a bit of meaning to it – About life and turmoils when ur in mid 20s…. Im 25 goin on 26 this year and like the song, which she wrote when she was 25 speaks the same thing that we young adults/youths go thru today… Bein jobless, not havin ur dream job and worse, a life that’s hopelessly going nowhere…..
A still life.
And trying to get up that Hill of Hope.
(you’ll understand what i mean in a crazy fast-paced country like ours)

Play the song and listen HARD to the lyrics if you belong to That circle.


Whats Up [1993] – Four Non Blondes


_

Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of
This brotherhood of man
For whatever that means
And so I cry sometimes
When I’m lying in bed
Just to get it all out
What’s in my head
And I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs What’s going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what’s going on?
Ooh, ooh ooh And I try, oh my god do I try
I try all the time, in this institution
And I pray, oh my god do I pray
I pray every single day
For a revolution.
And so I cry sometimes When I’m lying in bed
Just to get it all out What’s in my head
And I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs What’s going on?
And I say, hey hey hey heyI said hey, what’s going on?

Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination.
