Oh, 4 Non Blondes, you got that right. What IS goin’ on? This song perfectly encapsulates how I’ve been feeling lately, both internally and externally. What’s goin’ on in my head? What’s goin’ on with my life? What’s goin’ on with the country? What’s goin’ on with the world? I don’t have any answers, 4 Non Blondes, which is why I also would like to take a deep breath and scream at the top of my lungs. And sadly, it’s been 42 years, and I’m also still trying to get up that great big hill. So I don’t know if it’s good or bad that this song is still relevant. I’m just glad that it exists.
On a side note, while this song fills me with both happiness and gloom, the “What Up With That?” sketches on SNL fill me with nothing but happiness since they are the best sketches that have ever been created. In case you were wondering.
