Radio XXXVII, side A, track 7: “She’s So Young” by The Pursuit Of Happiness

The Pursuit Of Happiness - She's So YoungOh, The Pursuit Of Happiness, as much as I think this song is outstanding, I never realized that it had “hipster douchebag” written all over it.  So I’m guessing that you guys wrote this when you were in your early to mid-twenties?  And this song is all about how some girl is just too young to really understand the world and to question reality like you do? Because you’re so much older than some high school girl and have had so much more world experience?  And you then proclaim that this is the delusion of the young? Holy god, The Pursuit Of Happiness, I really hope you were writing that ironically, otherwise I’ve got a song for you called “Pot, Meet Your Friend Kettle”.

Now, I’m not saying that you don’t have the right to feel like you have a better understanding of the world than a high-school girl.  But I do call “hipster douchebag” on the idea that somehow you’re so much more deep and interesting because you happen to be older.  There are some ten-year-olds out there who’ve thought and done more in their first decade than some 100-year-olds have done in theirs.  One of the biggest errors in judgment that each generation has is that they know everything and the other generations, younger or older, know nothing.  Oh, sure, there are some individuals from each generation who are absolutely useless, and I know some of them personally, but I’ve also heard some profound words out of a five-year-old, so let’s not get so ageist right away, The Pursuit Of Happiness.  Although it seems like your problem is less your age and just more the fact that you were hipster douchebags before that became a thing (just judging by this one song of yours), so the good thing about all this is that you guys got me prepared for a lot of the bands that showed up in the ’90s and the new millennium.

“She’s So Young”

She’d like to believe she’s leading a brand new waaave

That uniform that she wears
I see it on the street every daaaaay

She looks heavenward
And struggles ta find the right
Clicheeee
You’ve gotta find yer own spaaaaace
Have a nice daaaaaay

She’s so young
She’s got the answer (she’s got the answer)
She doesn’t need to question herself like I doooo

Like I doooo

She’s so young
She’s got the answer (she’s got the answer)

Like the wisdom of ages
Will flow from her toooongue

Thiis is the
Delusion of the yooooooung

She says she’ll lead with her heart
But her heart really doesn’t knoooow
At aaall

Outta seein’ her faaaall
