Day 25 of 30 – Aerosmith, My Favorite Band of All Time

Back in the early 90s when I was in grade school, I got introduced to rock and heavy metal music by some of my close friends. I was instantly hooked as I listened to cassette tapes (remember those?) of some of the best rock bands from Guns N Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, KISS, and so many others, including of course Aerosmith.

I loved everything about the band and found myself collecting their albums, singing their songs, and learning all I can about them especially Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. Their music videos were legendary too. One of my best friends, William, had a VHS (remember those too?) of the making of the videos from their album Big Ones. The video for Crazy was one of the most memorable with my then celebrity crushes Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler both featured in the video. Alicia was also in Amazing (still my favorite song ever) and Cryin’ with that iconic bridge jumping scene that ends with Alicia flipping the bird.

There are so many great songs (that I still listen to on repeat on Spotify regularly) but here are my top 10 of all time:

  1. Amazing
  2. Livin’ On The Edge
  3. Crazy
  4. Dream On
  5. Cryin’
  6. Blind Man
  7. I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing
  8. Angel
  9. Walk This Way
  10. Dude (Looks Like a Lady)
