feeling .. a little peculiar

Linda Perry
4 Non Blondes howled their way onto the charts in 1993 with "What's Up?" and then vanished without a whisper. Formed in 1989 with Linda Perry (vocals), Shaunna Hall (guitar), Christa Hillhouse (bass), and Wanda Day (drums), 4 Non Blondes had no problems attracting major labels based on live shows and local radio support from KUSF, but the labels didn't know how to market them...

The band released Bigger, Better, Faster, More? in 1992. Dominated by Perry's high-pitched singing, "What's Up?" was slowly added to modern rock stations and then crossed over into the mainstream, peaking at number 11 on the Billboard Top 200. The video for "What's Up?" became a smash on MTV, propelling sales of the album to over six-million copies worldwide.(...) 

The group toured with Neil Young, Pearl Jam, and Bob Dylan. When Perry felt that the group had become too pop, she left 4 Non Blondes. She released her solo debut, In Flight, in 1995.  fonte

25 years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
"dear mr. president"
