Boo boo just dislikes Adam Duritz, there's nothing wrong with them. They have amazing lyrics.

Flea and Smith are completely average on this song, as is Kiedis, except for his lyrics which blow, though to be fair hes not one of the best songwriters in the world. The only part i'll give you is Frusciante being good on this, but I wouldn't expect him to be bad since hes the most talented member of RHCP.
I agree with Boo Boo - I don't think Flea is average on this song. You have to consider the role of a bassist and Scar Tissue has a fairly well written and effective bassline. And it is more than just root notes anyway, there is some lead stuff. I wouldn't call it one of his best basslines, but on the scale of things, it's better than average IMO.


I think those lyrics are decent:

Young kentucky girl in a push-up bra = nothing special but nothing wrong with it

Fallin all over myself = sex references
Lick your heart = lick her breasts
Taste your health = possibly oral sex

With the birds Ill share this lonely view = this is quite a great line IMO, using the perspective of birds flying over the world but not having the capability to do anything about it - gives a sense of loneliness


BTW, have you heard Niandra Lades & Usually Just a T-Shirt?




Anyway, I like Californication quite a lot. For me, BSSM > Mother's Milk > OHM > Freaky Styley > Californication...

The only Chili Pepers albums that come close to Californication are One Hot Minute and BSSM.
