Flashback Friday: 4 Non Blondes – What’s Up

I didn’t think of this as belonging in the #Flashback category – until I realized it came out a quarter of a century ago! Crap – where does the time go? 😮

Lyrics:

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, 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?

[2x]
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, 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?

[2x]
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I 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

“Dunrobin MacDhai” is a name I picked for myself decades ago, when I was in the SCA, in tribute to my Scots heritage. I always liked the Scottish name Dunrobin, and MacDhai is a Gaelic variation on my family’s Clan name.

I am a gay man in my sixties who finally accepted himself and came back out of the closet after more than 30 years of celibacy. A lover of Liberty, I am an anarchist and do not believe in the myth of “authority”, whether it’s the “State” or organized religion.
