What's Going On

Sometimes in life you have to face reality and just ask yourself "What's Up?". This song from 1993 from Linda Perry and 4 Non Blondes sums up many thoughts that I'm sure are going through many peoples minds these days. I know I keep asking myself what's going on....

To be honest with you, I have never seen this artist in this video before and I always thought it was a guy doing the singing. I just found out it was Linda Perry, obviously a woman, and I only found that out by seeing a show on the life of the diva Pink. After seeing Linda Perry perform this song I'm wondering if she is Johnny Dep's twin sister? Tell me you don't see the Willy Wonka look alike mannerisms! Not that it matters, I've always loved this piece and the words blow you away when you really listen to it.

Hi there Papa!
The following lyrics written in the early 70's is still relevant today unfortunately.

WHAT'S GOIN' ON

Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today - Ya
Father, father
We don't need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today
Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what's going on
What's going on
Ya, what's going on
Ah, what's going on
In the mean time
Right on, baby
Right on
Right on
Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply because our hair is long
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today
Oh
Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me
So you can see
What's going on
Ya, what's going on
Tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's going on

I hope this new year brings hope, joy, and much love to you.
Nancy
