Hi everyone – following on from last week’s theme of Colour, this week I’d like to share some tracks that ask Questions in their titles and lyrics. As always, feel free to dip in and out of the songs shared here and I hope you are enjoying these posts so far!
Where Is My Mind? – Pixies
Where Is My Mind? is from the debut album of the alt-rock group Pixies and has evolved into one of their signature pieces. This track gained its popularity after its feature in the film ‘Fight Club’ and has continued to grow since.
Why Does It Always Rain on Me? – Travis
This piece features Travis’ lead singer and songwriter Fran Healy’s doubts towards himself and the shape of his career as the group started to gain more attention. He shares feelings of his persistent bad luck as he searches for answers.
What’s Up? – 4 Non Blondes
The question ‘What’s Up?’ doesn’t actually feature in the lyrics of this piece, instead ‘what’s going on?’ is asked throughout. Linda Perry’s vocals effortlessly reflect the lyrical content of this track and its feelings of lostness and frustration.
How Would You Like It? – Lauren Aquilina
Aquilina asks questions throughout the verses of this song as she relays her experiences with a split from a difficult relationship. She uses the question How Would You Like It? to fuel her empowerment throughout this track as she learns to put herself first and take control of the situation.
Why? – Annie Lennox
Lennox released Why as part of her debut solo album which perfectly captures her vocal talent. This song shares her personal feelings and doubts towards going solo and finding her style, as this album follows the split of her duo Eurythmics.
