Under The Bridge – Song Of The Day

Under The BridgeThe second song from The Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ fifth album Blood Sugar Sex Magik, “Under The Bridge” is still, to date, arguably the band’s most melancholic track. Unlike a lot of the songs the band were releasing at the time, this one wasn’t particularly funky and it definitely wasn’t a party song. It was hugely entertaining, for sure, but it was far more about the melody and the lyrics than just another fun, dancy, mindless beat. Here was a heartfelt, bittersweet love letter to Los Angeles which felt surprisingly intimate and relatable. One of The Red Hots’ unavoidable masterpieces.
