Roxy’s Retro 9/27/22 10,000 Maniacs “What’s the Matter Here”

NATALIE MERCHANT IS ONE OF THOSE ARTIST THAT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO BE BETTER♥ THE FORMER 10000 MANIAC’S LEAD ALWAYS SEEMED SO CLASSY TO ME, PROPER BUT STILL COOL. I TOTALLY WANTED TO BE IN HER TRIBE! IN 1988, THE MANIACS ALBUM, MY TRIBE, BROKE THROUGH THE MAINSTREAM AND JUST REINFORCED MY LOVE OF THE SONGSTRESS, IT HIT JUST AS I WAS BEGINNING TO NOTICE INEQUITIES IN OUR WORLD AND THE SINGLE “WHAT’S THE MATTER HERE” SPOKE TO MY HEART AND SOUL…MERCHANT’S SOULFUL & HAUNTING VOCALS MATCH BEAUTIFULLY WITH THE QUESTION SHE WAS LYRICALLY ASKING …HOW CAN ANYONE ABUSE A CHILD…AND WHY DO WE NOT DO OR SAY ANYTHING ABOUT IT? ABUSE ISN’T OK, DON’T CARE IF IT IS YOUR KID OR NOT…AND IF YOU SEE IT HAPPENING…SAY SOMETHING…ANONYMOUSLY IF YOU NEED TO… THIS IS A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT, A BEAUTIFUL SINGLE ~ROXY
