One of the most loved bands of our childhood is Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Only when you say the band’s name, for sure you can start moving, dancing and singing one of their famous songs.
The choice for today’s song is By the Way, by Red Hot Chili Peppers.
They are an American rock band, formed in Los Angeles in 1983, consisting of Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith, and John Frusciante.
They are one of the best-selling bands of all time, with over 80 million records sold worldwide.
The free By the Way piano sheet music was released by Red Hot Chilli Peppers in June 2002, as part of their eighth studio album named By the Way, and as a single with Time and Teenager in Love on its B-side.
When released, By the Way, had incredible success, being the band’s highest-peaking single, was the band’s sixth number 1 hit on the Modern Rock Tracks chart.
The song spent seven weeks at number 1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and reached number 2 in the UK.
Looking into the composition of the song, the length of the free By the Way piano sheets is of 3:37 minutes in its original version, but it has also been covered by many artists over time.
We can hear elements like lead vocals, guitar, backing vocals, bass, drums, and tambourine.
For example, Peter Gelderblom released an electro house remix of the song in July 2007, with a length of 3:15 minutes, included on the compilation Wild Weekends.
By the Way has a really nice music video, released in 2002.
The music video was directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris and features Kiedis calling for a taxi, and his adventure on the way.
