So, I’m listening to music during the morning commute today…and “Virtual Insanity” by Jamiroquai plays. I haven’t heard the song for years and I think to myself, “whatever happened to Jamiroquai?” I liked that song. It was unique. I would want to hear more from Jamiroquai.

Well, through the magic of the Internet…and the wonderful Wikipedia and YouTube sites…I have found the answer. But, the answer annoys me a little. Jamiroquai is doing well actually. It is not a ‘one hit wonder’type of situation. And, the annoying part is that I do not recall hearing a single mention of or song from Jamiroquai in the last ten years. How is that possible? I’m tuned in. I’m hip. I know things.

How could a record company/artist not get the word out better than they have done?

I know…rhetorical question…

Anyway, here is the song/video. I hope you enjoy.

And, if you want to sing along, here are the lyrics:

Oh yeah what we’re living in (let me tell ya)
It’ a wonder man can eat at all
When things are big
That should be small
Who can tell what magic spells we’ll be doing for us.
And I’m giving all my love to this world
Only to be told
I can’t see, I can’t breathe
No more will we be
And nothing’s gonna change the way we live
Cuz we can always take and never give
And now that things are changing for the worse,
See, it’s a crazy world we’re living in
And I just can’t see that half of us immersed in sin
Is all we have to give these

Futures made of virtual insanity
now always seem, to be governed by this love we have
For useless, twisting, our new technology
Oh now there is no sound for we all live underground

And I’m thinking in what a mess we’re in
Hard to know when to begin
If I could slip the sickly ties that earthly man has made
And now every mother can choose the color of her child
That’s not nature’s way
Well that’s what they said yesterday
There’s nothing left to do but pray
I think it’s time I found a new religion
Whoaaa it’s so insane to synthesize another strain
There’s something in these futures that we have to be told.

Futures made of virtual insanity
now always seem, to be governed by this love we have
For useless, twisting of our then new technology
Oh now there is no sound for we all live underground

Now there’s no sound if we all live underground
And now it’s virtual insanity
Forget your virtual reality
Oh, there’s nothing so bad, I know yeah
(Bridge)
Oh, this virtual insanity, we’re living in,
Has got to change, yeah
Things will never be the same
And I can’t go on
While we’re living in oh, oh virtual insanity
Oh, this world has got to change
Cos I just, I just can’t keep going on, it was virtual,
Virtual insanity that we’re living in, that we’re living in
That virtual insanity is what it is

Chorus x2:

Futures made of virtual insanity
now always seem to be governed by this love we have
For useless, twisting, our new technology
Oh there is no sound for we all live underground

Living – Virtual Insanity
Living – Virtual Insanity
Living – Virtual Insanity
Living – Virtual Insanity

Virtual Insanity is what we’re living in

BTW – this scene from “Napolean Dynamite” includes a Jamiroquai song:
