(Top Modern Rock Songs Of All Time)
Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers
Release Date: March, 1996
From the Album: One Hot Minute (1995)
Quick Take: "Aeroplane" is a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers from their 1995 album One Hot Minute. It was the third single released from the album and a music video accompanied its release. Although the song was left off the band's Greatest Hits CD, the music video was included on the accompanying DVD. Despite its dark lyrical themes it is one of the more accessible and upbeat songs on One Hot Minute, with a funk slap bass line and child choral vocals from Flea's daughter Clara and her classmates. The song refers to American band Mazzy Star with the lyrics "The star of Mazzy must/push her voice inside of me".
