Come to decide that
The things that I tried
Were in my life
Just to get high on

When I sit alone
Come get a little known
But I need more
Than myself this time

Step from the road
To the sea to the sky
And I do believe
That we rely on

When I lay it on
Come get to play it on
All my life to sacrifice

Hey oh
Listen what I say oh
I got your hey oh
Now listen what I say oh

When will I know
That I really can't go
To the well once more
Time to decide on

When it's killing me
When will I really see
All that I need to look inside

Come to believe
That I better not leave
Before I get my chance to ride

When it's killing me
What do I really need
All that I need to look inside

Hey oh
Listen what I say oh
Come back and hey oh
Look at what I say oh

The more I see, the less I know
The more I like to let it go
Hey oh, woah

Deep beneath the cover
Of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Privately divided
By a world so undecided
And there's nowhere to go

In between the cover
Of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Running through the field
Where all my tracks
Will be concealed
And there's nowhere to go

When to descend
To amend for a friend
All the channels
That have broken down

Now you bring it up
I'm gonna ring it up
Just to hear you sing it out

Step from the road
To the sea to the sky
And I do believe
What we rely on

When I lay it on
Come get to play it on
All my life to sacrifice

Hey oh
Listen what I say oh
I got your hey oh
Listen what I say oh

The more I see the less I know
The more I like to let it go
Hey oh, woah

Deep beneath the cover
Of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Privately divided
By a world so undecided
And there's nowhere to go

In between the cover
Of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Running through the field
Where all my tracks
Will be concealed
And there's nowhere to go

I said hey, hey, yeah
Oh yeah, tell my love now
Hey, hey, yeah
Oh yeah, tell my love now

Deep beneath the cover
Of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Privately divided
By a world so undecided
And there's nowhere to go

Deep beneath the cover
Of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Running through the field
Where all my tracks
Will be concealed
And there's nowhere to go

I said hey, oh yeah
Oh yeah, tell my love now
Hey, yeah, yeah, oh yeah

Good point, but I believe that name has already been taken.
Please stop playing this.
These guys got better with each album for most of their work. Not easy to do.
I grew up on RHCP, but still I find a special place for SA and Snow. Jupiter is a popier side of the album, while Mars has more flavor to it. Something for everyone. 
Hitting PSD-oh. Can't do it fast enough, oh.

We be dancing like bowlegged gypsy muleskinners... love it...

however, this song does not hold a candle to "Scar Tissue" which never plays here...

until they hit it big with a few songs, these boys used to make their living playing in the bars... saw them a million times... impeccable musicians... and they were also vaudevillian... they would perform onstage wearing nothing but a sock over their penises— they would have shoestrings wrapped around their wastes holding a sock on their crotches...

they were cutting edge then, so to speak...


jesus
This song reminds me of how saddened and confused I am by John Frusciante's departure from the band. My favorite of their many guitarists.
Hooray!  I've alway liked this track, not least because of my gratitude that it's simply one of the few by the Red Hot Chili Poopers that doesn't compel me to change the channel immediately.  
Great song to jam to on guitar!
Wait, wasn't this a rock band at one time?!{#Frustrated}
RP is on a roll today. {#Notworthy}

I hope I didn't jinx it.  That would be true if you play Tori Amos next.

That's a good point - with some singers, you just want them to be quiet every once in a while so you can hear the rest of the music. I'm not a big fan of this song, but it sure is a lot better than the new single I heard from their latest.

 
Good point there. I think he has a big EGO and wants to be in on every section of the song. Let's hear the music. The dudes behind you are talented, let them do their thing. But I love you, anyway, Anthony.
Oh, how I love you, Anthony...just not this song. Sorry, baby.

Shouldn't this fade into the Police, Synchronicity?  Any votes for that segue?
Really!?!  
God Awful Music

Or, some have a different opinion than you of what they like or don't as the case may be..can't say I hate the Peppers, but this one isn't one of their stronger tunes. In my opinion that is..
I really love this song!{#Bananajumprope}
EXCELLENT!
First time I hear my Favourite Band on RP and I am super excited!

We like this song in our time share condo, it's got a nice melody.

lame
Not my favourite from this band...so many to choose from for that particular honour, but a nice little song even so.
It's just crappy.  Album filler at best - a tossed off 'song'.  {#Moon}  Please BIll- - make it stoooooppppp!
I have an immediate reaction to this song - absolute dislike...

Volume off, lets hope for something good after this.

 
I just don't get this band.

No. After listening for some years, while there certainly exist playlists that get repeated, Bill is constantly creating new ones and sometimes amending existing ones. Occasionally, a playlist is dropped - sometimes for years - and then pops up again. Sometimes he will play a particular playlist every day for a while but that is the most you will hear it and usually a playlist is weekly or more often, monthly. All playlists consist of five tracks. 

I would say there are certainly 100s of playlists and possibly 1000s.
 
Yes songs get repeated, but not as often as my local radio stations. I've also been introduced to some pretty cool artists over the years that sadly I'd never hear on mainstream radio.

I suppose if someone thinks the play list on RP is too short, they could make a generous donation that would allow them to pay the licensing fees on a few thousand more songs! {#Smile}

I don't think so. I like it as well. I think the Chilis turned a significant corner with Californication and this album—aging gracefully as it were, not an insignificant achievement for a bunch of surf punks. {#Lol}

yes, me too !  I love the bass line, and I'm surprised how bad the comments are about this nice swinging song. But I don't catch all the lyrics, is that the problem ?   {#Stupid}

And why does Kiedis need to fill with voice every single second they play? It gets annoying.

Really? In that case I'm sorry to break this to you, but I'm afraid your brain has gone hopelessly gay.

I wouldn't say any of us are actually too worked up.  Speaking for myself, I simply find this track to be lame.

(with all apologies to any paraplegics who may find this term disparaging, for I do not mean it in that sense)
I think this song is pretty lame.

No, I guess I don't. Why don't you explain it?
 
Jeeze, you are a dense one aren't you? You see, english is a crazy language. It's full of idioms and words with multitudes of meanings. Sure, there are some really annoying trends in our language, like the misuse of "their, there, and they're" or "your and you're". However, considering you are old enough to know how to post to an internet forum, you should know by now that the word "gay" does not solely refer to homosexuals. Hell, it didn't even refer to homosexuals at all for a long time, instead it just referred to being happy. Now it has yet another meaning as a general derogatory statement. You should realize that there are people out there who use the word "gay" in such a way who have nothing against homosexuals, it's just a term they grew up with and for whatever reason they use it. There are also a lot of people who hate homosexuals and use "gay" to make people like you mad. Those people are assholes, don't give them any more power than they already have.



This song is good for the ears...

Now that this song isn't on the radio every three hours, like the summer they released this album, I kinda enjoy it.  It was OVERPLAYED-O, now its OK-O.

5 from me.
-very nice!!
I think it is interesting when bands stray from their trademark.  I find this album pretty interesting, but people are really bashing it. Personally, I think RHCP is maturing rather nicely....

I must agree - that is a redeeming quality in the recording.

Is this supposed to be an attempt reggae?  I mean... seriously?  Wow.  California reggae.  Ahem... be back in a bit...
Incredibly formulaic.

The pseudo-rapping
long slow portion
somewhat energetic break
back to the same.

Yuk. And really trite chords.

nope, no thanks, not a fan.

The more I listen to it, the more I like it. At first I thought it's kinda gay, but now i turn speakers louder, when I hear it. Strong 8.

I am surprised that RPeeps don't like this one. It's not RHCP at their best, but not "sucko-barfo" either...I really like the guitar riff.

Hey, this rocks!, c'moooooooooooooon

So predictable RP...

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Snow (Hey Oh)
Stevie Wonder - Higher Ground    —— actually a cover made by RHCP

7:05 pm - Red Hot Chili Peppers - Snow (Hey Oh) 7:01 pm - Stevie Wonder - Higher Ground I remember a cover of Higher Ground by RHCP, we at highschool used to listening it all day long :music:

I don't know if they've gotten better, but I still enjoy their music and Frusciante uses some really interesting techniques on this album. My favorite cut on this album is Wet Sand, my five year old's favorite is Hump De Bump - something for everyone. Thanks for playing everything I like, I am so lucky to have found Radio Paradise.

Hey oh, i didn't hear of em outside of 'seein' crazy posters (socks...say no more) in Blondie's pizza shop until AFTER '89. It might be they are trying to pay some bills, but it's catchy. Hard for me to rate, but can't say I don't like it. Changing the regular, trying new territory, RP anyone, is not always a bad thing. Cheers

Agreed, speakerman. That was one of my all-time favorites as well. I wore it out when I first bought the album. I loved Freakey Styley as well, for that raw funk sound.
Well said. Someone always has to tell us how their old stuff is so much better and they can't stand their new stuff. If these listeners had their say, we'd never hear anything from these artists past 1989. xkolibuul wrote:
