What’s Up

by 4 Non Blondes


…the song “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes is a song that I feel very cheesy saying because it’s like the most overdone karaoke song, but it’s because it’s so good.

If sometimes things are popular, because they’re really great.

I related to it when I was 25. But  you realize at the end , she was talking about the past because nothing changed. And she kept seeing those same problems. And I’m like, “this song is so relatable”

And the lyrics in that song are fantastic and so relatable.

This is my power song because not only do I rock it at karaoke! I love the lyrics. I just genuinely love that song.

My Story

I think Mojo is whatever gets you going, what what gets you up in the morning? What keeps you up at night. What excites you? What drives you. I think it’s that inner force. I want to just be like MOJO! I am still on my journey of claiming my mojo.
