4 Non Blondes – What’s Up – 1992

Gruppo

Le 4 Non Blondes sono state un gruppo rock statunitense attivo dal 1989 al 1994.

I primi membri del gruppo furono la bassista Christa Hillhouse, la chitarrista Shaunna Hall, la batterista Wanda Day e la cantante Linda Perry. Prima della pubblicazione nel 1992 del loro primo album, Bigger, Better, Faster, More!, la Hall fu sostituita da Roger Rocha alla chitarra, mentre Dawn Richardson sostituì la Day alla batteria. Il loro primo ed unico singolo ad aver scalato le classifiche fu What’s Up?, celeberrima hit del 1993.

Il gruppo si sciolse nel 1995, quando la cantante decise di iniziare una carriera solista, causando l’abbandono degli altri membri.

Testo

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?
And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah
I said hey, what’s going on?
And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah
I said hey, what’s going on?
Oh, oh oh
Oh, oh oh
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 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?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what’s going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what’s going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what’s going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what’s going on?
Oh, oh oh oh
Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
