"Soul to Squeeze" is a single by the Red Hot Chili Peppers that was released in 1993 as part of the "Coneheads" soundtrack (though it was previously released outside of the U.S. since 1991 as a B-side on various singles). The song was recorded during the recording of "Blood Sugar Sex Magik," as seen on the DVD "Funky Monks", but it was not included in the final cut of the album. It is also featured on the band's Greatest Hits and Videos collection on CD and DVD. "Soul to Squeeze" reached number 1 on the Modern Rock Tracks (the second Chili Pepper single to do so) and number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100.

ong meaning

The song speaks about dealing with depression, withdrawal, and how the love of others can help one through these. This is in close reference to the hardships the Chili Peppers have faced, specifically those of frontman Anthony Kiedis.

Music video

The music video for "Soul to Squeeze" was directed by Kevin Kerslake and features Chad Smith, Flea and Kiedis in a stereotypical circus. The circus includes various "freaks" including "The Conehead", a reference to the film the song appeared in playing in and amongst all the acts. It is shot in black and white. Though John Frusciante does play guitar on this song, he is not visibly featured in the video as he had quit the band in 1992. In the video someone in his likeness wears a large black hat and can be seen at the end of the table in the video.

Originally, the video was supposed to feature the band playing spliced with footage from the film Coneheads, but The Chili Peppers refused this idea. Another scrapped music video idea had the band playing in the desert after a car accident. This version was meant to have a connection to the afterlife.
