Wow, that last pair of “literal remixes” was such a big hit that we just have to do one more. This one is based on “Under The Bridge,” a 1992 release by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. You'd never guess this was such a group of sensitive poets, would you? In fact, it was a noticeable departure from their usual alt-rock repertoire. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis wrote the real deal to express his despondency, in the wake of the effect that narcotic addiction had had on his life. The band went with the lyrics, wrote the music for it, and the song went to number two on the Billboard Hot 100. Just another hit parader for the Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.

This week has been nothing but a pain in the neck. Saddle up, Sal, we're goin' dancin.'
