Conversational part (study with teacher)

Warm-up

Answer the following questions:

1) Do you like songs of Red Hot Chili Peppers? Why/why not?

2) Do you have any personal associations connected with Red Hot Chili Peppers songs?

3) What is the secret of the success of Red Hot Chili Peppers?

Comprehension check based on video

1) What is this song about in your opinion?

Read and the explanation of the author:

Anthony Kiedis: "It's about the repeated failure to start your life anew and how difficult it can be to get rid off old ways of thinking, and destructive ideas we become so attached to."

2) What is the word ‘snow’ referring to?

This song is about cocaine and China White heroin, 2 of lead singer Anthony Kiedis' drugs of choice. Both are a white powdery substance, which looks like snow. The lyrics, "So white as snow... Privately divided by a world so undecided" refer to dividing the coke/heroin into lines, so as to deal them or snort them. The line, "The more I see, the less I know, the more I'd like to let it go" means the deeper Kiedis was immersed in these drugs, the less he knew what was going on, and the more he wanted to kick the habit.

3) What feeling do you have after listening to this song?

Follow-up

Read and discuss the following quotes by Red Hot Chili Peppers. Do you agree or disagree with them?


Homework

Listen to the song once again without the subtitles. Sing along with Red Hot Chili Peppers.
