Musical Memory Box: Special Day Edition

Sunday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Cryin’, Aerosmith, Get A Grip, 1993. I wasn’t going to get this one by Karl Bélanger, that’s for damn sure.

“Cryin'” is a song that began a trilogy of ballads released off of Get A Grip that pretty much proclaimed that the band was no longer able to write up-tempo hits. The three songs sound pretty much identical, and people still mix them up. Is it “Crazy”? No wait, “Amazing”. Oh crap it was “Cryin'”. To make it worse, all three videos featured a comely Alicia Silverstone, adding to the confusion. Having said all that, I did dig Joe Perry’s fedora in the “Cryin'” video.

Serge had a little sumthin’ sumthin’ to say about this song:

“Ok Was there anything sexier on MuchMusic then seing Alicia Silverstone getting her belly button pierced..among other things in the video of course. Also for Lost fans, note that “Sawyer” (Josh Holliday) was the guy how stole her purse and promptly got beatup.”

I would venture to say that yes, there were much sexier things, but I’ve never been a fan of piercings.

Here are your lyrics for today:

“Show me, show me, show me
How you do that trick
The one that makes me scream she said
The one that makes me laugh she said
And threw her arms around my neck”
