The best Dutch #1 hits: 29. Under the bridge (RHCP)

As posted here, the Dutch top40 chart celebrated its 50th birthday in January this year. When I posted about that event, I included my top50 songs that made the top40 chart in the past. I was intrigued how few of my favourite songs actually made the #1 position, so the rest of the year I will be posting at a rate of one a week (on Saturday, the day the top40 was broadcast) my countdown of fifty favourite #1 hits. At #29, we find funk punk metal band RHCP, who show themselves from their softer side in this timeless ballad ( #1 in 1992). Under the bridge, widely known as City of Angels, is based on lead singer Anthony Kiedis' experience as a drugs addict in Los Angeles. Art Rock score: 9/10 (awesome song, one of the 1000 best of all time).
