Red Hot Chili Peppers – This Velvet Glove Lyrics 1 year ago
Reading through the lyrics for what must be the millionth time and it just hit me, these lyrics have to be about his dad, Blackie Dammit. Anthony wrote Californication admist one of his final rehab visits and was also writing Scar Tissue (his memoir) in congruence. During this era, Anthony was going through a lot. This song is about acceptaning an addiction and getting the support he needed to over come it. Many of the lyrics hint toward the sense of reborn, and unity with nature. This can be metaphor for when finally kicking an addiction and being whole again. Anthony has never had a norma life and this was specifically exacerbated by the fact that his dad was a drug user/dealer and literally introduced him to what could've been his death. "I wanna taste what it taste to come face to face with common grace" is a hint towards that reborn feeling again. And what really makes me further tie the Blackie connection is "I wrote a letter to you, getting over myself." In rehab, you're encouraged to write letter to pass grievances and I wouldn't be surprised if one of the letters was addressed to Blackie, himself. Plus Anthony has always had that adoration towards his dad and has regarded him as his idol in many ways, so the lyrics "I'll do anything for you" reflect that about his dad. I wouldn't be surprise if most of the songs in Californication have to do with these similar themes. I'm a big big fan of RHCP (since I was 12, 22 now) and I love this song to bits!

The B-52's – Dance This Mess Around Lyrics 5 years ago
Her voice reminds me a little bit too much of Patti Smith's, especially in the beginning.
There is something about women yelping that I like. I guess that's why I make my mom scream all the time. Anyways, this song does it for me. Totally loving the vocals. Idk who it is though. Anyone?

Red Hot Chili Peppers – The Zephyr Song Lyrics 5 years ago
By the Way is their greatest album to date! Lyric-wise is phenomenal and the depth of these songs musically is over the top. The song are played with such passion that I haven't been able to find on another rhcp album. I know a lot would argue that Stadium Arcadium is the best one, but I beg to differ. Yes Stadium Arcadium is obviously a masterpiece but it has something missing which is the great lyrics that were featured on By the Way. Now, I'm With You, I believe that is grand on the scale that is so much bigger than anything they ever done. Musically, the album takes you over a wide range of different musical stylings and the way it is composed and arranged would make anyone's heart melt. But call me old fashion, (not really, I'm only 18), By the Way is still one of the greatest piece of music I ever heard.

AndrewVs, you're reading into this song waaay too much. The lyrics to this songs are really simple and it doesn't need that much analysis. It's pretty much all straight forward. As for the video it strays away from what the song is really about. I pictured the video for this song taking place in Grand Central Station.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Police Station Lyrics 6 years ago
I thought it was kinda very straightforward. I imagined it was about someone loving someone who was lost and over the years seeing her get caught up in trouble over and over again. But then the protagonist kinda saves her and shows her what real love is but they drift apart. And finally one day she is getting married and she has her life cleaned up but the protagonist always felt that when she did find her way back it would lead her to him not to some other guy. The end is just kind of his vow that he will never let her go. Its a really amazing song.

I thought of this song as more as for his son.

I think its very sweet of Anthony to dedicate a song to his son.

Best song in the whole album! And the first one to make mistake. I think the whole car ride thing is just a metaphor.

They keep driving and going along for the ride.

Sleater-Kinney – One Song For You Lyrics 6 years ago
Hmm, for some reason I imagined this little crazy story in my head when I heard this song and I thought about how this album must have been written around the time Corin had married Bangs. I think it is very deep and personal between Carrie and Corin and basically Corin is telling Carrie, "We can't forget about the times we had but I am moving on" and Carrie is saying "Go ahead, I wish you the best, I'll keep the memories that you left."

Sleater-Kinney – My Stuff Lyrics 6 years ago
I think if anything that this song is like for her mom and telling her that she is gay. It's her stuff and her problem and she should deal with it on her own. And the whole thing about God is about how Carrie is Jewish and it must have been harder for her parents to be okay with her lifestyle. And I also think the whole idea that religion implies about being gay must be hard and that's why she says I guess I need your help now like as though she is not even sure if what she is doing or if even who she is, is the right person. So far I have only listened to their first three albums and I am trying to get along to listen to the others. But they are amazing. I have been listening to them straight almost religously for a month now.

Sleater-Kinney – Dance Song '97 Lyrics 6 years ago
I hate how people assume that every sleater Kinney song is about being gay or that corin Tucker is singing about being in love with a girl or even Carrie brownstein herself. This song specifically is very general about the terms and the gender it's being reffered to. In any case is about being in love in general. Not one single gender is signaled out in this song. It's just a great song about the feelings of being in love for the first time. When I first heard the intro to this song and that little guitar line that kinda spirals and the whole album in general, I knew the potential of sleater Kinney and now looking back at them, they have exceeded my expectations and anyone elses for that matter.

Sleater-Kinney – Don't Think You Wanna Lyrics 6 years ago
Wow I can't believe people haven't commented on this but beyond stating the obvious, I'll write my comment. This song, I think is about for some reason about older men having sex with younger, underage girls. The whole bit about being in the sky and being almost "holy" and "pure," made me think about school girls and how they sometimes try to seduce older men. It's basically almost like the girls won't regret it because theyre young and dumb and almost innocent but the older men will because it is just pathetic of them. Well, yeah, whatever, that's just my interrpetation.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Save the Population Lyrics 6 years ago
When I first heard this song I thought of one thing:

"History so strong" : I think refers to his past and how he was charged for being a sex battery

adding on to the whole "When the verdicts comes round" and the "Eyes shinning with revalation" is the

shock fans had.

Also I agree with everyone else that "Save the population" is about sex

However there are some other references like: "sell it to the lexicon" for some reason reminds me of

the Lexicon Devil, a song from the Germs, which happens to be Anthony favorite band.

And that is my pick on it.
