Culture

Can’t stop the Gods from engineering
Feel no need for any interfering
Your image in the dictionary
This life is more than ordinary
Can I get 2 maybe even 3 of these
Coming from a space
To teach you of the pliedes
Can’t stop the spirits when they need you
This life is more than just a read thru

  • Red Hot Chili Peppers

Side Note: One word. Raw. This incarnation of the Red Hot Chili Peppers will always be the best incarnation to me. Frusciante’s guitar riff carries the entire song and shows just how crucial he is to the Peppers. Frankly, everything about this song is so simple, yet, it’s probably impossible to emulate. Technically, there isn’t much going on, but the secret’s in the performance, both recorded and live. Everything about this arrange just works. From the vocal interplay between Kiedis, Frusciante and Flea, to the stoic drumming of Smith. And how about that scorching guitar solo with a nice switch-up to Flea’s bass to hold the riff and groove while Frusciante rips it a new one?
