Queens of the Stone Age - First It Giveth
"I’m in you, you’re in me. I can’t tell. You’re so cruel, more than me. It is true, that’s right. Loyal to only you. Up your sleeve. I want some of all of you. Tricking me. First it giveth, then it taketh away.”
Red Hot Chili Peppers | Knock Me Down
‘While we were rehearsing, I started a cautionary song called “Knock Me Down.” It was a song that described what it was like to be a drug addict, to have that ego and to think you were impenetrable and impervious to the forces of nature and life. But it also was a love song for Hillel. I had pages and pages of verses but no melody or organization. John had come to me right after he joined the band and told me that I could show him anything and we could write together. One of the first things I showed John was “Knock Me Down.” I warned him that it was very verbose.
“Oh, that’s okay, I’ve been working on this really verbose melody, and I can see how it’s going to apply exactly to these words,” he said. He sat there, studied the lyrics, and started smushing them into his melody. It was uncanny. In a few minutes, he had a complete verse melody. This was a real epiphany: “Okay, here’s another way songs can be written.” Even when Hillel was there, everything we wrote was in a group context. Flea and I had written songs together, but it was different on the bass. Now I felt that I could write anything – a melody, a rhythm, a lyric – and go to this new friend of mine and sit down, and when we left that session, we’d have a song. I felt like anything was possible with this kid. I could show him my most sentimental writings, and he didn’t stop to judge them once. There was no moment when he read the lyrics to see if he liked them or if they were something he wanted to do. Whatever I’d written had to be a song. Now I didn’t have to second-guess myself or be afraid to show something or try something new, which opened up the avenue for writing songs and making cool music.’ Anthony Kiedis
