Beast of Burden
I wasn't dissing All Saints. I had a soft spot for them. I thought Shaznay Lewis was gifted, like Mark Morrison.
I never thought about it like that."Under The Bridge" by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers is a terrible song. All Saints' version changes it from a boring dirge about heroin and with a few lyric changes makes it about modern isolation in cities, the walk home after a big night, the mix of fear and shame and chemical comedown, it's so powerful and intuitive for me.
