Do you know the connection between Californication, Dani California and By the Way?
Obviously are all songs made by the Californian Rock Band Red Hot Chili Peppers that do have a common topic : Dani California
Who is she? As Anthony said once, the character of Dani is composite of all the women with whom he has had relationships ( we are really curious to know how many…this Dani-girl might have a lot of double personality problems….).
She was originally from Mississippi while she lived her short life in California, obviously she ended up being in trouble,
By the Way is describing a part of her life and a rendez-vous with Anthony in which she was singing for him.
By the way was released in 2002 as a first single of the album that carries its same name that sold over 15.000.000 copies and it is considered one of the most interesting album of the band from a lyrics perspective.
