Here the lyrics of the most requested songs by Airbnb guests. As a music lover, these lyrics provide a much needed respite from the noisy commutes.
The Boston-born rock band, Aerosmith, has had a long career spanning six decades. In 1973, the band released its debut self-titled record, the first of its 15 studio releases. Along the way, the band has released hit after hit while frontman Steven Tyler shrieked and guitarist Joe Perry wailed on his six-string.
While it was the lead single off of ‘Nine Lives,’ “Falling in Love (Is Hard on the Knees)” could’ve easily found a home on 1993’s ‘Get A Grip’ thanks in part to the lovely use of horns. Also, only Steven Tyler could write lyrics like, “I’m jonesing on love/Yeah, I got the DT’s/You say that we will/But there ain’t no guarantees/I’m major in love/But in all minor keys.”
From the late ‘80s to the mid-’90s, Aerosmith seemingly couldn’t miss with their singles. Sometimes, they would hold onto them for years before releasing them. “Deuces Are Wild” was recorded during the studio sessions for 1989’s ‘Pump,’ but it would finally see the light of day in 1993 when it was featured on ‘The Beavis and Butt-Head Experience’ compilation album. It's pretty mind-blowing that such an obvious hit took so long to be released.
“I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” is Aerosmith’s biggest ballad for multiple reasons. Penned by songwriting powerhouse Diane Warren, the track was the lead single off the soundtrack from the 1998 blockbuster film ‘Armageddon,’ which starred Liv Tyler, daughter to Steven Tyler. From the beautiful string section to The Demon of Screamin’ hitting some of his boldest notes, it was simply the perfect song for an epic disaster movie. It also gave Aerosmith their lone number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in their whole career.
Look, none of us really want to remember Aerosmith without Joe Perry, but if his absence was necessary to create “Let the Music Do the Talking,” so be it. The track, of course, was written by Perry and originally recorded and released by The Joe Perry Project in March 1980. While the actual music wasn’t altered much when Aerosmith re-recorded it for ‘Done With Mirrors,’ the lyrics were given a complete overhaul and for the better.
Aerosmith’s resurgence in the mainstream following their first initial boom in the 1970s can be traced back to “Dude (Looks Like a Lady).” The second single off of ‘Permanent Vacation,’ the track was the first hit collaboration of Steven Tyler, Joe Perry and Desmond Child. While the song has been accused of being transphobic in recent years, Child said in an appearance on a 2019 episode of the podcast “Talk is Jericho,” “... The wonderful thing about the song is, especially the second verse which goes, 'Never judge a book by its cover, or who you're gonna love by your lover' - that's a song of acceptance.” The song was famously included during a montage in the 1993 film ‘Mrs. Doubtfire,’ and it’s hard not seeing Robin Williams playing broom guitar whenever you hear this song now.
