Song of the Day: Red Hot Chili Peppers – “Tear”

Happy birthday to Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis, who turns 55 years old today. This ballad is one of my favorite tracks off my favorite RHCP album, By The Way. It’s a lovely song, Beach Boys-esque with a nifty guitar solo and trumpet solo and nice harmonies. Not sure exactly what it’s about, but it seems to be just a song where Kiedis talks about cherishing every moment: “All in all/I’m loving every rise and fall/The sun will make and I will take/Breath to be sure of this/In the end and then/All will be forgiven when/Surrender rises high and I/Gave what I came to give/Say it now because you never know.”
