Radio XLVI, side A, track 10: “New Thing” by Enuff Z’Nuff

New Thing - Enuff Z NuffOh, Enuff Z’Nuff, so I was sitting here staring at the computer screen trying to figure out what to write about this song.  I had a few ideas, most of them involving lame jokes about getting high.  And then my wife happened to come over to my little corner where I type these silly things to give me a hug, and she looked at my screen and said “Enuff Z’Nuff?”  And she sang the words “new thing”, a little hesitantly, but she was on the right track, and she looked at me for confirmation and I started singing the chorus and she joined right in and we sang the whole chorus in unison and just like that she remembered not just the words but all the little note changes for when you sing “hiiiiiiiiiiiiigh”.  I had already loved this song because of the unique way you sing the lyrics, like you’re a beatnik snake undulating over bumpy ground, plus that great chorus, but now I love it because my wife and I had one of those moments that you know as it’s happening will be one of those memories that you’ll look back on and smile about.  And this particular memory has its own soundtrack.  Plus it just makes me love my wife even more that she knew this song in the first place.  For all of those reasons, this song wins the coveted award of becoming one of the official theme songs of Mixed Tape Masterpiece.  I know it’s pretty exciting, Enuff Z’Nuff.  Feel free to thank my wife.

“New Thing”

Information came about her
Suddenly I live without her
Turn my stereo up louder
I don’t wanna hear about her
Took myself a small vacation
Kind of an investigation
Checking out a new sensation
Finding much invigoration
Hand is on the buzzer and I’m walkin’ through the door

Get hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh on a new thing

Get hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh on a new thing

Get hiiiiiiiiiiigh
Hiiiiiiiiigh on a new thiiiiiing

Everybody wants to find it
Just they’re all so narrow-minded
See a hill, they’ve got to climb it
May be pots of gold behind it
Worry, worry is your answer
If you like ya wrinkles faster
Nursing old things make them last
The way we did it in the past
With everybody telling you
You ain’t got no respect

Get hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh on a new thing

Get hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh on a new thing

Get hiiiiiiiiiiigh
Hiiiiiiiiigh on a new thiiiiiing

<awesome Enuff Z’Nuff jam>

Suicide don’t make it ’cause you’re lonely in the end

Get hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh on a new thing

Get hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh on a new thing

Get hiiiiiiiiiiigh
Hiiiiiiiiigh
Hiiiiiiiiigh
Hiiiiiiiiigh on a neeew thiiing

Yeeeah yeah yeah yeah
