Ain’t That a Bitch

Yep, that’s the one. If I had to name one, right now, at this moment in time, “Ain’t That a Bitch” from 1997’s “Nine Lives” is my favorite Aerosmith song. But I don’t have to. I can name as many fucking Aerosmith songs as I want, and having listened to their entire discography up and […]

Part VI: The Grind

In the penultimate installment of the series, I will present the final three Aerosmith songs that are not, at this time in history, my “favorite” Aerosmith song.

… or: more Aerosmith songs, some of which I quite like, that still all have in common that there is at least on other Aerosmith song that I happen to like somewhat more. (Continued from here, and here.) From “Aerosmith” (1973) “Mama Kin” From “Get Your Wings” (1974) “Woman of the World” From “Toys In […]

Same Old Song and Dance: Finding my Favorite Aerosmith Song

(As everything around here this is mostly for my own amusement, but why do anything without giving strangers (and friends) the option to comment on it, I figured.) Instead of picking up smoking like all the cool kids I spent my youth getting weirdly obsessed with Boston rock phenomenon, and early Simpsons guest stars, Aerosmith. I don’t listen […]

Top 10 Albums of 2013

It’s list time! While 2012 had been the year I fully switched to streaming instead of buying and discovered a lot of new music, I mostly stuck to the familiar in 2013. Only a handful of albums released this year made it into my rotation, which is not to say that there havn’t been some […]

Oh Land

With the Simpsons tournament moved off and my thoughts on movies and TV mostly shared through Twitter these days, what else is there to blog about? Right: music. My current obsession is Danish pop singer Oh Land, whose latest album, “Wishbone,” offers some pretty catchy tunes, and its singles make for some even catchier music videos: […]

Do It With a Rockstar
