The Red Hot Chili Peppers is one of my biggest influencers when it comes to songwriting. I especially love The Zephyr Song’s rhythm and sentimental meaning of the lyrics. I interpreted this song as a reflection of the love of life. “In the water where I center my emotion, all the world can pass me by” depicts how surfing helps the singer to forget the troubles around him. He loves being in the ocean because it clears his mind, the same way that this song makes me feel free and hopeful.
