4 Non Blondes – What’s Up (Mix)
I love 4 Non Blondes’ message almost
as much as their overall sound
and they are in their own way “seriously sexy”
I want to particularly thank, my girlfriend Anita (who makes it all worthwhile), my psychiatrist Vera, my teacher Paul Yuhanick and all my “second family” here, my long-time friend Bert, and all those who have have been thinking about and hoping and praying for me. I would not be here without you and I just “love you to death.” A request would be for a few of my readers to be friends and chat on gmail. It gets lonely blogging. Anyone who wants to chat can find me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4 Non Blondes was a short lived collaboration, more’s the pity, I really like their sound and sentiments, they strongly “speak to me.” Wikipedia says:
4 Non Blondes was an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1989. The group was formed by bassist Christa Hillhouse, guitarist Shaunna Hall, drummer Wanda Day, and vocalist and guitarist Linda Perry. Prior to the release of their first album, Roger Rocha replaced Hall on guitar, and Dawn Richardson replaced Day on drums. They hit the charts in 1993 with “What’s Up?”, their only major hit single. Perry left the band in 1994 to begin a solo career, and the remaining members disbanded shortly after.
4 Non Blondes, with lead guitarist Linda Perry, had one big reunion concert, I think in about the year 2,000. Watch them singing their signature song at the reunion, “What’s Up” on YouTube — 5:23. It becomes clear that maybe Perry is a little gay, but hey, she’s a really cute girl. I don’t judge her, judgment is for God, just enjoy the music, OK?
For me, as someone who used to be something of a dissident, the lead song here, “What’s Up” is good strong medicine. ((I’m totally up front, as an ACTIVIST, trying to be helpful and move America forward. I am NOT in any way a dissident, hey these are two different words, OK? The by-now trite expression “change from within” will always apply, but I try hard to work for all Americans, I am nonpartisan and have been through the “political wars” for several years now. If I didn’t care so much about my fellow man and patriotically about America, I would have left the political scene long ago. Politics can get pretty dirty and really I want (would prefer to take) no part in it. What God asks of me is something else again.))
If you don’t quite get the message from this video playlist, and especially 4 Non Blondes, right up front, maybe you can “feel it.” These girls do some very seriously good indie/alternative rock, but (sorry) dears, ich kann kein anders tun (as Martin Luther said), despite the fact that currently this video playlist is right at the top of my favorites: I mean, some diabolically crazy sense of humor is demanding of me here to tell the best blonde joke I could find on the net. And so without further alibis, the best blond joke ever goes like this:
A blind man enters a bar and finds his way to a barstool. After ordering a drink, and sitting there for a while, the blind guy yells to the bartender, “Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?” The bar immediately becomes absolutely quiet. In a husky, deep voice,the woman next to the blind guy says, “Before you tell that joke, you should know something. The bartender is blonde, the bouncer is blonde and I’m a 6′ tall, 200 pound blonde with a black belt in karate. What’s more, the fella sitting next to me is blonde and he’s a weightlifter. The woman to your right is a blonde, and she’s a pro wrestler. Think about it seriously, mister. You still wanna tell that blonde joke?” The blind guy says, “Nah, not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.”
OK, back to the music here: The overall psychological effect to me of 4 Non Blondes “What’s Up” is hard to put into words but for me it is immediate and strong. The feeling is the same sort as I used to get when I was more liberal and more of a dissident: it is the same sort of wish that we could build a more caring, sharing and equal society, which, correctly understanding the political nature of the times, I realize very likely this just isn’t possible right now, but maybe in a hundered or two hundred years…. if it isn’t too late for mankind. It’s not rocket science, people: too many people, too few resources, so we have to share more of the resources intelligently, to minimize suffering.
I also think 4 Non Blondes music speaks to me as someone who has suffered mentally (or emotionally) at times. So it is wistful and emotionally there is a connection, even though I am no longer either liberal or dissident, although I am and always will be an “activist.” The emotional effect on me reminds me of what I felt when dad, who was a Ph.D. of Russian language and literature, had me read Chekhov, particularly the play called The Cherry Orchard. But for those who wish to explore the lyrics of “What’s Up,” themselves, the lyrics can be found here. It is with their emotional response to this music that I think all people can have the best common understanding, regardless of whether you are conservative or liberal. At least I hope so. The song is very heartfelt. What do you think of it?
