Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers
Song: Bicycle Song
Album: By The Way (2005)
To highlight particular moments of quiet and reflection, you can get around by bike some big rock band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, for example. Their "Bicycle Song" is published in the album "By The Way" (but it’s a bonus track of the i-tunes version, out in 2005). The song is a nostalgic ballad in the typical style of the californian quartet, where the pleasant refrain emphasizes that " How could I forget to mention the bicycle is a good invention ". We agree!
I think that only the melody of the song is upbeat, and happy. If you listen to the lyrics I think that the song is about a girl that he truly respects and cares about, but he keeps messing up the way he treats her. “I’d hop this fence to make amends I hope this movie never ends” I think that in the song he cares about the girl but doesn’t know how to communicate he feels and gets frustrated, because the bicycle is a symbol showing it’s a cycle of many similar relationships. That is what I thing, but maybe I am being too pessimistic.
