Review #49: Aquemini, Outkast

#49: Aquemini, Outkast

Shortly before setting out on my road trips, I realized something about Outkast’s hit song “Hey Ya!”: The lyrics are actually quite sad. Andre 3000 sings about breaking up with someone he’s in love with: “Why oh why oh why [etc]/ Are we so in denial when we know we’re not happy here?” He even mocks his listeners for jamming: “Y’all don’t wanna hear me, you just wanna dance.”
