"Linda wrote the song when she was in a room down the hall. I was in my bedroom having sex, and I stopped because I heard her playing that song. I remember running down the hall and saying, 'Dude, what are you playing? I like that.' I remember being struck by it. She kept looking at me, going, 'Does this sound like something? Am I plagiarizing someone?" I said, 'Finish the song, it's beautiful.' It caught on at our shows right away, people really liked it." - Christa Hillhouse (bassist)
''I remember when she was writing the verses to 'What's Up,' she knew it so well, she thought she heard it before. I think that's why the song connects with so many people. What she was feeling she was able to translate. If you look at the lyrics, they don't mean anything. It's the way the song makes certain people feel. It's a connection to humanity. Certain simple songs, that's what they do. - Christa Hillhouse (bassist)
