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

Happy birthday wishes go out to Bernie Taupin, who turns 68 years old today. Taupin of course is best known for being a songwriting partner with Elton John, which is where you’ll find most of his songwriting credits. His name pops up on other songs, however, with one of the most unique collaborations being this one with Red Hot Chili Peppers of their 2016 album The Getaway. Taupin and John, who plays piano on this track, appear on the credits along with Danger Mouse on the production — an unusual but effective all-star effort. Along with the song came a bizarre video; no idea what’s going on in there. But it’s an enjoyable track and an effective collaboration.
