Hollywood Rock Walk - Aerosmith - "Going down, Mr. Tyler?"

Band from Boston. Nearly banned in Boston. 40+ years of blues / hard rock ranging from the serious to the salacious.

 

"Dream On" - backed by ominous almost subliminal "doom chords":

 

"Every time when I look in the mirror

All these lines on my face getting clearer

The past is gone

It went by, like dusk to dawn

Isn't that the way

Everybody's got some dues in life to pay

 

I know nobody knows

Where it comes from and where it goes

I know it's everybody's sin

You got to lose to know how to win

 

Half my life Is books written pages

Live and learn from fools and from sages

You know it's true, oh

All these things you do come back to you

 

Sing with me, sing for the years

Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears

Sing with me, just for today

Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away"

 

At the other end of their range is "Love in an Elevator":

 

"Workin' for the company (Oh, yeah!)

I'm bettin' on the dice I'm tossin' (Oh!)

I'm gonna have a fantasy (Oh, yeah!)

But where am I gonna look?

They tell me that love is blind

I really need a girl like an open book

to read between the lines

 

Love in an elevator

Livin' it up when I'm goin' down

Love in an elevator

Lovin' it up 'til I hit the ground

 

Jacki's in the elevator

Lingerie second floor

She said 'Can I see you later

And love you just a little more?'

I kinda hope we get stuck

nobody gets out alive

She said 'I'll show ya how to fax in the mailroom honey

and have you home by five'

 

Gonna be a penthouse pauper

Gonna be a millionaire

I'm gonna be a real fast talker

and have me a love affair

Gotta get my timin' right

It's a test that I got to pass

I'll chase you all the way to the stairway, honey

Kiss your sassafras"
