Lead singer Anthony Kiedis (from Rolling Stone, June 15, 2006): "That has a lot of stuff going on. The third part is straight love song: 'My heart, your skin, this love I'm in.' It's also about the power of not having to be right all the time. If you want to get along with somebody, let them be right, and it will last longer."
This one of the band's favorite songs on the album. When the song was not released as a single, the Chilis took matters into their own hands. They held a contest on Youtube in which they asked their fans to produce their very own music video for the song and the winning video would be made the official video. The winning video was directed by Omar Minya. It shows child versions of the band members driving in a van, picking up a Native American, and ending up at Venice Beach.

Susanna Hoffs - "Eternal Flame"
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
