Under the Bridge is considered the biggest success by the alternative rock band, Red Hot Chili Peppers. The song was included on the album Blood Sugar Sex Magik and won a MTV Video Music Award as Best Music Video which was directed by Gus Van Sant, one of the well-recognized American film directors.

As it’s common for different succesful singles of all times, Under the Bridge wasn’t thought to be included on this album because the tempo of the song is quite differento from the rest of their single. The one is more a power ballad than a alternative rock single precisely.

The single has been re-released twice together to other popular singles of this band like Suck My Kiss, I Could Have Lied and Give It Away.

Blood Suar Sex Magik was ranked by the Rolling Stones as one of the best 500 albums of all time by placing on the position #310.

Red Hot Chili Peppers released I’m With You, their tenth studio album this year. This is the first album with the new guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer, who filled in John Fusciante shoes.

The band will continue their We’re with You Tour in 2012 by beginning in Sunrise, Florida next January 20th.



Under the Bridge - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Sometimes I feel
Like I don’t have a partner
Sometimes I feel
Like my only friend
Is the city I live in
The city of angels
Lonely as I am
Together we cry

I drive on her streets
‘Cause she’s my companion
I walk through her hills
‘Cause she knows who I am
She sees my good deeds
And she kisses me windy
I never worry
Now that is a lie

I don’t ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way

It’s hard to believe
That there’s nobody out there
It’s hard to believe
That I’m all alone
At least I have her love
The city she loves me
Lonely as I am
Together we cry

I don’t ever want to feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all that way

Under the bridge downtown
Is where I drew some blood
Under the bridge downtown
I could not get enough
Under the bridge downtown
Forgot about my love
Under the bridge downtown
I gave my life away
