Favourites: Naked in the Rain by Red Hot Chili Peppers

I had heard Red Hot Chili Peppers before they released 1991's Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Songs like "Special Secret Song Inside", "Fight Like A Brave", "Knock Me Down" and their cover of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" were all featured on my college radio show.

However, Blood Sugar Sex Magik was a different beast. Produced by Rick Rubin, it featured a unique sound and solid song writing from end to end. I'm sure you're familiar with hits like "Under The Bridge" and "Suck My Kiss". If you haven't heard the album all the way through, I think you should.

This is one of my absolute favourites from this monumentally amazing album, "Naked In The Rain".

Just don't get me started on the stuff they've released since then...
