Otherside (RHCP)

After performing “Love Hurts” by Incubus on the Smule app, I felt a little bit resolved in my inner sadness, but I knew that I needed something more to keep me going. The song had opened up a doorway to the past, and I wanted to keep exploring the depths of my emotions. I scrolled through the app, looking for something that would hit me just as hard, and then I saw it – “Otherside” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I hesitated for a moment, my hand hovering over a half-empty beer bottle on the table. I knew I shouldn’t, but the temptation was too strong. I grabbed the bottle, throwing caution to the wind, and took a long swig, feeling the liquid fire burn its way down my throat. I let out a sigh, a mixture of relief and defeat, as I tapped on the song to start the recording. As the intro played, I thought about the lyrics and how they related to the industry, my dreams, and my marriage. I was no stranger to the darker side of life, having faced my fair share of demons over the years. But music had always been my sanctuary, a place where I could escape and find solace in the midst of chaos. As I started singing, I felt the familiar surge of emotion that came with pouring my heart into a song. I lost myself in the music, allowing the words to flow through me like a river, washing away the pain and anguish that had been building up inside me. The melody resonated with my soul, as if it were telling my story, and I couldn’t help but feel a connection to the band and the struggles they’d faced in their own lives.
