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). Both songs were written by Linda Perry, who later became a top songwriter for other artists; her hits include "Beautiful
" by Christina Aguilera and "Get The Party Started
" by Pink. In 2006, Pink released her own "Dear Mr. President
," but it's a totally different song and Perry didn't write it.
