Virtual Insanity by Jamiroquai

The first time I ever heard this song was seeing the video on MTV while I was housesitting. It was during my first year of college and I'm realizing that a lot of the music that shaped who I am came into my life around that time! The video is bizarre and the song has such a unique sound along with discussing what a crazy world we live in-I think it all appealed to my young self struggling to find my way and figure out who I was. 

When Maroon 5 first came out, I thought they sounded just like Jamiroquai and were ripping off their sound. I didn't like them for the longest time for that reason! I do think Maroon 5 sounds a lot different now and I haven't heard anything from Jamiroquai in years so this seems funny to admit to!

I like this song because it has a relaxing sound to me. I find that an interesting contrast to the lyrics talking about how mixed up our world is and that we're living in a virtual insanity!


  1. We indeed are living in virtual insanity! I kinda love Maroon 5. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier today :)

  2. Jamiroquai has lots of kick ass tunes. Unapologetic to their sound. So good. Good call for this one.
