Greatest Hits is Aerosmith's first standard "greatest hits" compilation album. It went multi-platinum and contained some of the hits that made the band an icon of the 1970s rock era. A few remastered versions of Greatest Hits appeared in the 1990s and are considered partly responsible for the band's popular rejuvenation during the decade.
Some of the tracks were significantly shortened from their original version, paricularly "Same Old Song and Dance", "Sweet Emotion", and "Kings and Queens".
Greatest Hits has gone on to become the band's bestselling album in the United States, achieving sales in excess of 11 million copies. The band won a diamond award when the album's sales reached the ten million level in 2001.

Gems is a compilation album released by Aerosmith in 1988 under the label Columbia. It was the first compilation of studio material since 1980s Aerosmith's Greatest Hits. Concentrating mainly on heavier material than the radio-friendly single output on Greatest Hits, the album is noted for the inclusion of the previously unreleased studio version of "Chip Away The Stone." A staple of the band's live set, the studio version of this song first surfaced as the b-side to the 1977 single "Draw the Line," and a live rendition had appeared on 1978's Live Bootleg.

O, Yeah! The Ultimate Aerosmith Hits



Release Date: July 2, 2002
Chart Positions: #4 (US), #6 (UK)
Certifications: 2x Platinum (US)
Singles: "Girls of Summer"
Sales: 10,000,000

O, Yeah! The Ultimate Aerosmith Hits is a greatest hits album by American hard rock band Aerosmith, released in 2002. A double-disc album, it included 28 of the band's biggest hits in chronological order and spanned the band's entire career up to 2002. Also included were two new songs, "Girls of Summer" and "Lay it Down". Some pressings included bonus tracks, in addition to the 30 songs found on standard versions. Noticeably, more weight seems to have been given to the later recordings than the band's earlier days; only 12 out of the 33 compiled songs are drawn from the 1973-1985 era.
O, Yeah! has since been certified double platinum.

Devil's Got a New Disguise



Release Date: October 17, 2006
Chart Positions: #33 (US), #19 (UK)
Certifications: -
Singles: "Devil's Got a New Disguise"
Sales: 500,000

Devil's Got a New Disguise - The Very Best of Aerosmith is a compilation album by American hard rock band Aerosmith released on October 17, 2006.
The album is intended to fulfill Aerosmith's contract with Sony Music/Columbia Records and to tide their fans over until the band releases their 15th studio album, scheduled for release in 2008.
Aerosmith had hoped to spend much of 2006 recording material for a new album, but the band had been hit with a number of setbacks during the year, including lead singer Steven Tyler requiring throat surgery in March of 2006, bassist Tom Hamilton recovering from treatment for throat cancer, and conflict with their record company.
Thus, as the band had been robbed of adequate time to create a quality album, they opted to release a best-of compilation instead.
The album features 16 Aerosmith hits in their single-remix versions, spanning their entire career, as well as two new songs: the title track, "Devil's Got a New Disguise", and "Sedona Sunrise." "Devil's Got a New Disguise" was culled from outtakes from the Pump sessions, during which it was called "Susie Q" and had unfinished lyrics; later, during 1992's "Get a Grip" sessions, its title changed to "Devil's Got A New Disguise", it was co-written by Diane Warren (I Don't Want To Miss a Thing) and for the 2006 version few lines of the lyrics were changed. "Sedona Sunrise" was also culled from the Pump sessions co-written by Jim Vallance (The Other Side, Young Lust, etc). "Devil's Got A New Disguise" is a straightforward rocker, while "Sedona Sunrise" is a very laidback, somewhat romantic country rock tune.
The European edition of the album was released on 30 October 2006 and it features 5 tracks different to the American version. These tracks are: "Amazing", "Angel", "Falling In Love (Is Hard On The Knees)", "Pink", and "The Other Side". The tracks that were on the American edition of the album but are not on the European edition of the album are: "Back In The Saddle", "Last Child", "Mama Kin", "Rag Doll" and "What It Takes".

Mama Kin
"Mama Kin" is a song written by Steven Tyler and recorded by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was released as the first single from their self-titled debut album in 1973.

Lyrical interpretation
It is likely that the song's message is about keeping in touch with your family ("Keep in touch with Mama Kin, tell her where you gone and been") no matter how busy your life may be ("sleeping late and smokin' tea"). It has also been said that "Mama Kin" is Steven Tyler's idea of a spiritual force that drives creativity and pleasure. "Keep in touch with Mama Kin" means remembering the desires that drive you to excel.

The phrase "smokin' tea" was changed from Sleeping late in Sunapee, a small town in New Hampshire, to sleeping late and smokin' tea. The line is sometimes changed to "smokin' weed" live.

The lyrical reference to being "bald as an egg at eighteen" is a nod to the band's longtime friend who was bald and envious of his friends' wild, long hair styles

Song structure
The song comprises a basic guitar riff, with a strong rhythm backbeat which comes in between lyrics in the verse and throughout the bridge. There are also saxophones interspersed throughout the song.

Legacy
Despite never reaching any of the major charts, the song receives a good amount of airplay on most AOR and other rock radio stations.

The song has also been a live staple of Aerosmith concerts throughout their career (including up to their most recent tour in 2006). Live versions of the song appeared on Live! Bootleg, Classics Live, and A Little South of Sanity.

The song has also appeared on several Aerosmith compilations including Gems (1988), Pandora's Box (1991), Pandora's Toys (1995), O, Yeah! The Ultimate Aerosmith Hits (2002), Greatest Hits 1973-1988 (2004), and "Devil's Got a New Disguise" (2006).

Noteworthy references to the song
In the early 1990s, the band opened up a music club called the Mama Kin Music Hall in their hometown of Boston, Massachusetts - the club has since closed.
Steven Tyler has a tattoo on his arm with the phrase "Ma' Kin." He got it when they were writing their first album because he had so much confidence in the song. Tyler and Perry have both said that his arm was too thin to fit the whole title.

Guns N' Roses version
The song was covered by Guns N' Roses in 1986 and released in the same year in their EP Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide. It was later re-released on their 1988 EP G N' R Lies.

Same Old Song And Dance

"Same Old Song and Dance" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. The song was written by lead singer Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry. It was released in 1974 on the band's second album Get Your Wings. Although it didn't make an impact on the charts, it has remained a staple on most rock radio stations and in the band's setlist.

Song structure
The song was built around a riff that Joe Perry came up with while sitting on his amp. Steven Tyler quickly came up with the lyrics. The song's lyrics are sung in sync with the main riff in the song. Additionally, the song is known for its upbeat rhythm and the dueling guitars by Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, along with interspersed horns.

Live in concert
The song has remained a fan favorite and a staple in the band's live shows. The band often does an extended jam during the song live in concert, often resulting in the song going two minutes over the song's original running time. This extended jam at the end of a song is used as a showcase for Tom Hamilton. Steven Tyler is also known to do his trademark scat singing during these jams.

On other albums
"Same Old Song and Dance" has been featured on numerous Aerosmith compilatons including Greatest Hits (1980) (where 52 seconds of the song are edited out), Pandora's Box (1991), O, Yeah! The Ultimate Aerosmith Hits (2002), and Greatest Hits 1973-1988 (2004). The song can also be found on the live albums Classics Live II (1987), A Little South of Sanity (1998) and Rockin' the Joint (2005), as well as on the live DVD You Gotta Move (2004).

In other media
The song is a playable track in the video game, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock as a Master Track.

Train Kept A-Rollin'

"Train Kept A-Rollin" is a song written by Tiny Bradshaw, Howard Kay, and Lois Mann. Bradshaw first recorded the song in 1951, it was his best known recording. After a rock and roll version of the song was recorded and released by Johnny Burnette and the Rock and Roll Trio in 1956, numerous other such versions have been recorded since.

Aerosmith Version
Aerosmith covered the song on their 1974 album Get Your Wings. It was released as the second single from the album. The guitar work, however, is not by Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry. Producer Jack Douglas brought in Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter, who are best known for their work on Lou Reed's Rock n Roll Animal, to supply the guitar parts. The song has long been played on album-oriented rock and classic rock radio stations. Additionally, the song has long been an important staple in the band's live shows, often closing their shows. It is featured on three Aerosmith live compilations: Live! Bootleg (1978), Classics Live (1986), and Rockin' the Joint (2005). On the Rockin' the Joint version, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford can be heard doing a little bit of "The Star Spangled Banner" towards the end, as the concert performance was only four months after the September 11th terrorist attacks. Additionally, the band is known to play two different versions of the song, the regular version of the song, as well as a slowed-down version often called "Slow Train" in the setlists. On at least two occasions, lead singer Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry have performed the song with other artists; in 1992 with Guns N' Roses and in 1995 with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. In 2002, they performed the song live with the Japanese hard rock band B'z, whose lead singer's voice, Koshi Inaba, has been compared to Steven Tyler.

A cover of Aerosmith's version appears in the music video game Rock Band.

S.O.S. (Too Bad)

"S.O.S. (Too Bad)" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was released in 1974 as their third single from their second album Get Your Wings.

Background
Written by Steven Tyler, it is a hard rocking song focusing on sex and sleaze, with a chorus of "I'm a bad, lonely school boy, and I'm a rat, and it's too bad, can't get me none of that." The song starts off with a fast drum beat and basic guitar riff, then slows down, and builds up once again, with Steven Tyler's rapid-fire, fierce lyrics accompanying. The song's lyrical content and musical styles are in the vein of "blooze", a grittier hard rock version of blues music, often with lyrics focused on sex, drugs, and urban life.

The song has remained a fan favorite and has been a staple in the setlists on Aerosmith's most recent tours, the Rockin' the Joint Tour and the Route of All Evil Tour.

S.O.S. stands for "Same Old $h!t".

Sweet Emotion

"Sweet Emotion" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was released in 1975 as the first single from the band's breakthrough smash Toys in the Attic. The song began a string of pop hits and large-scale mainstream success for the band that would continue for the remainder of the 1970s. The song was written by lead singer Steven Tyler and bassist Tom Hamilton.

Success
"Sweet Emotion" was released as a single in 1975, and peaked at #36 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the band's breakthrough single and the first Top 40 hit for the band. The day it hit #36 on the U.S. chart, July 19, 1975, Aerosmith was booked at a gig in New York City's Central Park, called the Schaefer Music Festival. The song was so successful that the band decided to ride the heels of success and re-release their first single, "Dream On", which had originally charted at #59 in 1973. The re-released version went on to hit #6, the highest chart performance in the 1970s for the band.

Lyrical interpretation
Many Aerosmith fans believe that Steven Tyler wrote all of the lyrics to the song about the tension and hatred between the band members and Joe Perry's wife. While this is partially true, Steven Tyler himself has said that only some of the lyrics were inspired by Perry's wife. It was stated in Aerosmith's tell-all autobiography Walk This Way and in an episode of Behind the Music that growing feuds between the band members' wives (including an incident involving "spilt milk") may have helped lead to the band's original lineup dissolving in the early 1980s.

In the film, Be Cool, John Travolta determined that Steven Tyler wrote "Sweet Emotion" because the emotion he felt as being a father for the first time. This interpretation cannot be true because Tyler's first born, Liv Tyler, was born in 1977; 2 years after the song was written.

Music Video
The video for the re-released version (mentioned in a later section) is said to be based on a phone sex conversation. In the video, it shows a young man under his covers with a magazine which is advertising a phone sex line. The boy and girl talk about each other for a bit, until it goes into a shot of the band performing in some sort of club. It switches in between Aerosmith performing Sweet Emotion and the phone conversation. At the very end, it is revealed that the sexy woman the young man is talking with is not what he sees her as in his mind. She is shown to be an overweight older woman with a baby living in a poor house.

Song structure
The beginning of the song is a repeating bass riff by Tom Hamilton that continues throughout the rest of the song. There is also usage of a talk-box in the beginning by Joe Perry, which has become one of the more popular and famous uses of the guitar talk box in popular music (Joe Perry can be heard saying the title). Eventually Steven Tyler joins in, saying "Sweet Emotion" slowly, in sync with the talk-box, or vocoder. After that, the song kicks into a more rocking number with dueling guitars, and rapid-fire angry-sounding lyrics by Steven Tyler. The chorus in the song consists of a repeating guitar riff followed by a slow singing of "Sweet Emotion" twice. The band supposedly used a packet of sugar as the percussion instrument for the intro. In live performance this sound is duplicated by Steven Tyler with maracas.

On Aerosmith's Greatest Hits, the 1980 compilation album, "Sweet Emotion" appears in edited form. The bass solo and vocoder part that opens the song has been cut, and the track begins with the chorus that precedes the first verse. The guitar solo at the end of the song was also exised, and the track concludes with the chorus, which repeats as the song fades out. This same edit was used for the original single release of the song, which was quickly replaced in subsequent pressings with the album version from Toys in the Attic.

Live in concert
Ever since its inception, the song has been a live staple at Aerosmith concerts, and even to this day, the band almost never omits it from the setlist. Live, this song is Joe Perry's feature solo spot, of late complete with elaborate lights, smoke, theremin, and a variety of guitar tricks, as well as an extended guitar solo. The song is also a feature live spot for Tom Hamilton, as it is one of the more prominent Aerosmith songs featuring an opening bass solo. He often does an extended bass solo before the band goes into the song. In concert, Steven Tyler is also known to substitute racier lyrics such as "I'll be cummin' in your hand" instead of "I'll be eatin' from your hand"; has also on occasion replaced "I can't say baby where I'll be in a year" with "I've got the garage but I'll park it in the rear" (a seeming reference to anal sex); and is also known to grab or point to his crotch, during the lyrics "my get up and go". Steven Tyler also often encourages the crowd to chant "yeah...yeah...yeah..." during the repeating guitar riffs preceding the choruses.

Legacy
The song has been included on almost every Aerosmith compilation and live album, including Aerosmith's Greatest Hits, Pandora's Box, Pandora's Toys, O, Yeah! The Ultimate Aerosmith Hits, Devil's Got a New Disguise, Live! Bootleg, Classics Live I, A Little South of Sanity, Greatest Hits 1973-1988 and Rockin' the Joint.

The song is frequently cited as Aerosmith's signature song, including in the World Almanac and Book of Facts, and regularly competes with "Dream On" and "Walk This Way" for the title of Aerosmith's "signature song" elsewhere.

It is often included on "greatest song" lists or "greatest rock song" lists, including a ranking of #408 on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Re-Release
The song was re-recorded, and re-released as a single in 1991, in coordination with the release of the band's box set Pandora's Box. This version of the song was slightly different from the original and the aforementioned video was also released in conjunction. The re-released version reached #36 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and #74 in the United Kingdom.

Walk This Way

"Walk This Way" is a song by American hard rock group Aerosmith. It was written by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. It was originally released as the second single from their 1975 album Toys in the Attic. It peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1977, part of a string of successful hit singles for the band in the 1970s.

In addition to being one of the songs that helped break Aerosmith into the mainstream in the 1970s, it also helped resurrect their career and revolutionized rock and roll and hip hop music when it was re-made in 1986 with rappers Run-D.M.C. on their album Raising Hell. It became an international hit and won both groups a Soul Train Music Award for Best Rap - Single in 1987.

The song was covered by UK girl groups Girls Aloud and Sugababes as the official Comic Relief single in 2007.


Song information
The song starts out with the famous two measure drum beat intro by Joey Kramer, followed up the equally famous guitar riff by Joe Perry. The song then goes into the verse, with a steady drum beat and bassline by Tom Hamilton forming as the backbeat, with dueling guitars by Joe Perry and Brad Whitford. The lyrics, which tell the story of a high school boy losing his virginity, are sung quite fast by Steven Tyler, with heavy emphasis being placed on the rhyming lyrics (i.e. "so I took a big chance at the high school dance"). This rap-style delivery -- which may explain why the song worked so well as a rap song when it was re-made 11 years later -- was ahead of its time. Between the elaborately detailed verses, the chorus primarily consists of a repetition of "Walk this way, talk this way". In collaborations, the other singer often says "talk this way" every alternate line of the chorus. Live in concert, Steven Tyler often has the audience, combined with members of the band, sing "talk this way". There is also a lengthy guitar solo at the end of the song, and in concert, Steven Tyler will often harmonize his voice to mimic the sounds of the guitar. In the Run-D.M.C. cover, the turntable is added in to reflect the additional hip hop influence on the record.

While the band were working on Toys in the Attic, having written the music for the song but having difficulty coming up with lyrics for it, they decided to take a break and see Young Frankenstein, where the "Walk This Way" gag provided the basis (or phrase) for the lyrics.[1]

While the Run-DMC cover is nearly identical to the original version of the song, the Girls Aloud/Sugababes cover has a few changes tweaked into the song; the additional line "Walk this way, you wanna talk this way" is added, the vocoder is added, and the beat is slightly sped up to add a further Britney Spears-esque bubblegum pop/dance pop influence to the song.

Both versions of the song, the original Aerosmith version and the second Aerosmith/Run-DMC remake version, appear on various Aerosmith compilations.


Legacy of the 1975 version
"Walk This Way" was one of two hit singles by the band to hit the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 in the 1970s, the other one being a re-release of "Dream On". "Walk This Way", though, helped "Toys in the Attic" to be the bestselling Aerosmith album, and one of the most critically acclaimed. Aerosmith's version of "Walk This Way" often competes with "Sweet Emotion" and "Dream On" for the title of Aerosmith's signature song, being one of the band's most important, influential, and recognizable songs. The band almost never omits it from their concert setlist, still performing their classic version of the song to this day. The song has also long been a staple of rock radio, garnering regular airplay on classic rock, mainstream rock, and Album-oriented rock radio stations.


Success of the 1986 version
In 1986, the rap group Run-D.M.C. performed a cover of "Walk This Way" with Steven Tyler and Joe Perry guesting on vocals and guitars. The 1986 version of the song is often credited as helping break rap into mainstream popular music as it was the first rap song to hit the Top 5 in The Billboard Hot 100, and the remake demonstrated how elements of rap music can be part of rock and pop songs. It also samples briefly the opening drum intro of the original in a middle section of the song. This version of "Walk This Way" charted higher on the Hot 100 than the original version. It was also one of the first big rap singles in the UK, reaching a peak of #8 there. The landmark collaboration catapulted Run-D.M.C. into mainstream stardom and would influence rap music for years to come. The collaboration also introduced a fusion of hard rock and hip hop, later known as rapcore or ghetto rock, to a wide audience for the first time. The song also marked a major comeback for Aerosmith, as they had been largely out of mainstream pop culture for several years, and their 1985 comeback album Done with Mirrors, flopped. After this comeback, however, Aerosmith would follow up with a string of multi-platinum albums and Top 40 hits, starting with the album Permanent Vacation and single "Dude (Looks Like a Lady)" in 1987.


Music video
The 1986 music video for "Walk This Way" symbolically placed Aerosmith and Run-D.M.C. in a musical duel in neighboring studios before Tyler literally breaks through the wall that separates them. The video then segues to the bands' joint performance on stage. The highly popular video was the first rap video ever played in heavy rotation on MTV and is regarded as a classic of the medium.

Later collaborations
In 1989, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry joined Bon Jovi at a concert at Milton Keynes Bowl in the United Kingdom for an encore performance and extended jam of the song.
On September 9, 1999, Kid Rock joined Run-D.M.C. and Aerosmith for an updated rendition of "Walk This Way" at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. In 2002, Kid Rock and Run-D.M.C. (as separate acts) opened for Aerosmith on the first leg of the Girls of Summer Tour. Each night, at the end of Aerosmith's set, Kid Rock and Run-D.M.C. would join Aerosmith for an encore collaborative performance of "Walk This Way".
At the Super Bowl XXXV half-time show in January 2001, performers *NSYNC, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, and Nelly joined Aerosmith onstage for an encore performance of "Walk This Way" with members of *NSYNC and Britney Spears singing different parts of the 2nd verse, Mary J. Blige adding background harmony, and Nelly performing a rap towards the end of the song.
At the Hyde Park Calling festival in London on June 24th, 2007 (a date on Aerosmith's 2007 world tour), Aerosmith were joined on stage for their encore performance of Walk this Way by Run DMC's Darryl.

You See Me Crying

"You See Me Crying" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was released in 1975 as the last track on the band's breakthrough album Toys in the Attic. It was released as the third single from the album in November 1975, but failed to chart.


Overview
The song is a complex piano ballad and was heavily orchestrated. Aerosmith and producer Jack Douglas brought in a string orchestra for the song, which was conducted by Mike Mainieri. The song itself was written by lead singer Steven Tyler and outside collaborator Darren Solomon. Some of the band members became frustrated with the song, which took a long time to complete, due to the many complex drum and guitar parts.

The band's label, Columbia Records, was nonetheless very impressed with the song and the recording process. Bruce Lundvall, then-president of Columbia Records walked in on the recording sessions for Toys when the band was working on the song and remarked: "You guys got an increidble thing going here. I just came from a Herbie Hancock session and this is much more fun."
