Interesting fact about this Linda Perry tune – she could not call this song “What’s Going On” even though it is in the lyrics and the title is not, because of the Marvin Gaye song with that title. Linda Perry was inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame in 2015 and Lady Gaga sang it in her honour. The band’s bassist, Christa Hillhouse, has stated “the lyrics don’t mean anything. It’s the way the song makes certain people feel”. There is, however, a strong sentiment of being appreciative of and inquisitive about life. The “institution” mentioned in the lyrics is a personification of life at large. Here is “What’s Up”.
