When You Gonna Learn, Jamiroquai, 1993
Today’s dessert comes from the 1993 song When You Gonna Learn by British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai, from their debut studio album, Emergency on Planet Earth.
Like many of Jamiroquai’s early records, When You Gonna Learn deals with environmental issues. The song’s music video shows stock footage of whaling activities and animal experimentation – deemed graphic content by MTV, who replaced the original version with a 'cleaner' edit.
Fronted by lead singer Jay Kay, Jamiroquai is best known for their hit song Virtual Insanity (1996), which won four MTV Video Music Awards and a Grammy.
