Aerosmith gets by with a little help from friends

Written by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, and Taylor Rhodes, “Crying‘” was released by Geffen records in 1993, after their record label rejected most songs the band had written for the Get A Grip album.

They were signed to Geffen Records, whose executive John Kalodner was assigned to the band. It was his job to break the bad news that the songs they had written sucked, but he felt it was more important to look after their business interests than to form a friendship.

This was Alicia Silverstone‘s first Aerosmith video, and it launched her career. She starred in Aerosmith’s next two videos as well: “Amazing” and “Crazy,” and has since been in many movies, including Clueless, The Crush. The video also features Stephen Dorff, and Josh Holloway.

The band went on to win multiple awards:

  • MTV Video Music Award for Video of the Year
  • MTV Video Music Award for Viewer’s Choice
  • MTV Video Music Award for Best Group Video

I LOVE this song, and video. I remember wanting to be just like Alicia Silverstone. Definitely one of the best videos of the 90’s.

 

+Cryin’ lyrics below+

There was a time
When I was so broken hearted
Love wasn’t much of a friend of mine
The tables have turned, yeah
‘Cause me and them ways have parted
That kind of love was the killin’ kind
Now listen
All I want is someone I can’t resist
I know all I need to know by the way that I got kissed
I was cryin’ when I met you
Now I’m tryin’ to forget you
Love is sweet misery
I was cryin’ just to get you
Now I’m dyin’ cause I let you
Do what you do – down on me

Now there’s not even breathin’ room
Between pleasure and pain
Yeah you cry when we’re makin’ love
Must be one and the same

It’s down on me
Yeah I got to tell you one thing
It’s been on my mind
Girl I gotta say
We’re partners in crime
You got that certain something
What you give to me
Takes my breath away
Now the word out on the street
Is the devil’s in your kiss
If our love goes up in flames
It’s a fire I can’t resist

I was cryin’ when I met you
Now I’m tryin’ to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin’ just to get you
Now I’m dyin’ cause I let you
Do what you do to me

‘Cause what you got inside
Ain’t where your love should stay
Yeah, our love, sweet love, ain’t love
If you give your heart away

I was cryin’ when I met you
Now I’m tryin’ to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin’ just to get you
Now I’m dyin’ just to let you
Do what you do what you do down to me,
baby, baby, baby

I was cryin’ when I met you
Now I’m tryin’ to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin’ when I met you
Now I’m dyin’ cause I let you
Do what you do down to , down to, down to, down to
I was cryin’ when I met you
Now I’m dyin’ to forget you
Your love is sweet
I was cryin’ when I met you
