Frogtoon Music - Song Info: Yippie Ki Yay

“Yippie Ki Yay“ Is The Second Single Released By Minnesota Indie Rock Band Hippo Campus For Their Fourth Studio Album Wasteland. The Song Officially Dropped On March 21 2023 With An Official Visualizer. “we Initially Started Writing This Song 6 Years Ago. It’s A Story Within A Story. The Narrative Follows A Character Who Has Been Outlawed But Zooms Out In Each Chorus To The Perspective Of The Characters Writing The Story. It Deals With “giddying Up” In The Sense That We Gotta Keep On Keeping On Despite Not Knowing What The Fuck We’re Doing A Lot Of The Time. Imposter Syndrome. The Etymology Of The Word “yippie” Is Not Commonly Agreed Upon But In The 1936 Song “I’m An Old Cowhand From The Rio Grande ” Written By Johnny Mercer About A Changing Landscape Of The Traditional Cowboy Portrait The Lyrics Seem Applicable To Our Current State Of Affairs Perhaps The Human Condition The Constant Observation And Resistance To Social Change. The Ugly Reflection Of A Faux Cowboy Not Knowing How To Actually Really Truly Rope A Steer.“ – Hippo Campus Via Grand Jury Music
