A band that I loved awhile back....and still do even though they are no longer together. This is our Monday Mood and usually just put a link to a song on Instagram and FB but thought the 4 Non-Blondes deserved some words. 3 women and a man made some fantastic tunes and I've been Queening on them for years! So 3 of them are still around and 1 sadly passed away.
Queen On Queens
Sing Out Loud Everyday
Lyrics are below
Here's WHAT'S UP.
After the success of 'What's Up?,' 4 Non Blondes went on to contribute songs to '90s flicks like 'Wayne's World' and 'Airheads.' However, in the midst of 4 Non Blondes recording their second studio album in 1995, the group disbanded.
Frontwoman Linda Perry went on to pursue a solo career, which eventually led her towards a successful career in production and songwriting. Remember the infamous feud between Pink and Christina Aguilera back in the day? One thing that added fuel to the fire was that Pink felt betrayed that Perry decided to work in the studio with Xtina. Perry has also worked with artists like Gwen Stefani and Alicia Keys -- but don't expect her to work with Katy Perry any time soon, whose music Linda Perry referred to as "crap." She is currently dating Sara Gilbert, who is known for portraying Darlene on 'Roseanne.'
The remaining members of 4 Non Blondes have also continued to find happiness with music. Former guitarist Shauna Hall tours with funk band George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic, while fellow 4NB guitarist Roger Rocha also continues to tour and make music with his band the Goldenhearts. Despite their '90s success, bassist Christa Hillhouse has settled into the 21st century comfortably, working as a graphic and web designer at her company CHILLHOUSEmedia. Sadly, the original drummer in 4 Non Blondes, Wanda Day, passed away in 1997 due to a drug overdose.
Crank up your lovely Monday morning & sing like a f****king Queen ladies!
I'm 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 for this
Brotherhood of man
For whatever that means
Just to get it all out what's in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar
And I take deep breath
And I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What's going on?
Hey, yeah, yeah
I said, hey!…
