The 30 Day Song Challenge Day 6 – A Song that Reminds You of Somewhere

Universally Speaking by Red Hot Chili Peppers from By the Way

I actually really dislike this song, and generally dislike that album too, and have fallen out of love with the band themselves in actuality, but that summer when it came out? Never will forget it. It was the summer that I went with my parents for what was likely our last family holiday – 2003 was the first summer I spent on my own, so it is very likely – I remember spending hours at the pool side in Gran Canaria listening to this album and Stereophonics’ Just Enough Education to Perform almost on a continuous loop.
