So the song this week is “What’s Up” by 4 Non-Blondes.  It’s a musical tribute to befuddlement and I thought that Total Recall would be a good pic to use.  Poor Quaid.  He doesn’t know WHAT’S going on!  And the more I watched this video the more I realized that the band kind of looks like they got dressed by me if I were going to make a Mad Max movie.  And I somehow had Boy George in it.

I’m not going to pretend that I know what the song is about but I assume that since it was the 90’s (1992 to be exact) there was a lot of angst about all the Gulf Wars and shit and kids just needed to let everyone know how complicated they were.  But then the Mad Hatter lady says that she is praying for “Revolution”.  What kind?  Industrial?  Was she calling for the Internet to be invented?  Maybe she was talking about Prince’s band.  Actually, that makes a lot more sense.  I’m going to go with that.  And if you ever want to be in a Mad Max movie, let me know.  I’ll totally let you be in mine.  You can take Boy George’s part (he’s sort of weird).  Video and lyrics after the jump.

Twenty – five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
And 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 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 at the top of my lungs
What’s going on?
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 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 at the top of my lungs
What’s going on?
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
