Alright, last one I promise! Back to normal reviews tomorrow! I swear.
Today, we’re checkin’ one of the lesser known singles from Red Hot Chili Peppers’ funky masterpiece Blood Sugar Sex Magik, If You Have To Ask. Check the video below:
As I said, many people may not have realised that If You Have To Ask was released as a single for Blood Sugar Sex Magik and, while it is easily the weakest of the bunch (but the rest are completely amazing songs), this is a phat shame, because it is a great little tune and one that is right at home in the track listing. Immediately, Frusciante’s guitar is the focal point of the song, playing with a coy attitude, while Flea’s subtle but virtuoso bass licks really bring the seductive funk nature to the song. Couple this sexay bassline with the baritone rapped vocals of Anthony, with lyrics like “Add a little lust to the funky-ass Flea bass.” — That won’t be necessary.
Lots of hugs, kisses and lacerations
