Today in nostalgia: Red Hot Chili Peppers

May 4, 2011 at 5:36 am (Nostalgia) (, , , )

A Red Hot Chili Peppers (1983-present) sampler, mostly from their later albums. They haven’t had a new song since 2006, so this qualifies as nostalgia (they are, however, coming out with a new album in August. It may or may not be called ‘Dr. Johnny Skinz’s Disproportionately Rambunctious Polar Express Machine-head’.)

I love me some drift-into-afternoon-rain kind of music. And running-up-a-hill-while-drunk kind of music. And Anthony Kiedis.

Otherside (from Californication, 1999)

I yell and tell it that it’s not my friend
I tear it down, I tear it down
And then it’s born again

Can’t Stop (from By The Way, 2002)

Can’t stop the spirits when they need you
This life is more than just a read-through

Under the Bridge (from Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik, 1996)

I never wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way

Dani California (from Stadium Arcadium, 2006)

California rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California show your teeth
She’s my priestess, I’m your priest

By The Way (from By The Way, 2002)

Dani the girl
Is singing songs to me
Beneath the marquee…overload

(for some reason I always thought that was ‘oversoul’ o_O)

The Zephyr Song (from By the Way, 2002)

Super friendly aviator

Californication (from Californication, 2000)

First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Hard to Concentrate (from Stadium Arcadium, 2006)

Sweet precision and soft collision, oh
Hearts about to palpitate

Cabron (from By The Way, 2002)

I am small but I am strong
I’ll get it on with you
