Dear Mr. President by 4 Non Blondes

Album: Bigger, Better, Faster, MoreReleased: 1992
  • The 4 Non Blondes are best known for their hit "What's Up," but this was their first single ("What's Up" was the second).
  • Bass player Christa Hillhouse: "George Sr. was president at the time, and we were having a hard time getting airplay in certain places. In Texas, they wouldn't play it because they looked at it as an assault on the Bush administration. It's kind of funny because it wasn't about the president in office, it was about the hierarchy of power and government. It wasn't specifically pointed at him. I remember being really surprised when it happened. It's a song about looking around and seeing problems and feeling like there's someone in charge who is responsible." (Thanks to Christa for speaking with us about this song. Christa is a web designer, writer, and is involved with various music and film projects. Her website is www.chillhousemedia.com.)
