“Breaking the Girl” – Red Hot Chili Peppers

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are a band that I’ve admired more than actually liked. With a few notable exceptions, most of their songs leave me cold. “Breaking the Girl” is one of those exceptions and it’s an excellent one. I love how the tension of this melancholy masterpiece builds until it crashes about 3/4 of the way through. The video, directed by Stéphane Sednaoui, is also really good and one of my favorites from probably the last era of my life when music videos actually meant something. From the gazillion selling 1991 album “Blood Sugar Sex Magik.”
