Red Hot Chili Peppers - Give It Away [Official Music Video]



The act was something that affected Kiedis significantly because he had never before experienced such an enlightening ideology on life. Growing up in Los Angeles, he had always thought differently from Hagen. Instead of giving material possessions away and being free thinking, the vocalist believed one must take what one wants, as no one else will provide.[9] Instead, he now adopted Hagen's philosophy: "It was such an epiphany that someone would want to give me her favorite thing. That stuck with me forever. Every time I'd be thinking 'I have to keep,' I'd remember 'No, you gotta give away instead.' When I started going regularly to [drug and alcohol] meetings, one of the principles I had learned was that the way to maintain your own sobriety is to give it to another suffering alcoholic. Every time you empty your vessel of that energy, fresh new energy comes flooding in."[9] Flea's bassline for the song allowed Kiedis to recall this incident and he believed the music paired perfectly with the lyrics.[6] During the verses, Kiedis departs from the idea of unselfishness and sings about a variety of topics including long-time friend River Phoenix, musician Bob Marley and various sexual themes including fertility and lust.[10]

The song has two major intentions: First, to talk about the excesses of mankind. Their video is a visual representation of lust and greed. Their bodies are painted gold to symbolize material wealth whilst their movements and vulgar camera angles are meant to demonstrate how mankind so readily objectifies, sexualizes, and perverts the beauty of the human body.To "give it away," in this sense, means to free yourself of the evils of greed by giving away material wealth. Secondly, and most importantly, this song and the accompanying video send a message about giving not only material wealth away, but, as another poster has already mentioned, but rather love. Love is what one should ultimately give away freely. 041b061a72
