Aerosmith - Sweet Emotion - Live




"Sweet Emotion" is a song by the American rock band Aerosmith, released by Columbia Records in April 1975 on the album Toys in the Attic and was released as a single a month later on May 19. 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, produced by Jack Douglas and recorded at the Record Plant.


"Sweet Emotion" was released as a single on May 19, 1975, and peaked at #36 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the band's breakthrough single and their first Top 40 hit. 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 and consequently the album that went into the Top 10 were so successful that the band decided to ride the heels of success and re-release one of their first singles, the power ballad "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. "Sweet Emotion" remains successful in the modern day, having sold over three million digital downloads.



Lyrics



You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so

You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so


You think you're in love

Like it's a real sure thing

But every time you fall

You get your ass in a sling

You used to be strong

But now it's "oh baby please"

'Cause falling in love is so hard on the knees


You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so

You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so


We was making love

When you told me that you loved me

I thought ol' cupid

He was taking aim

I was believer when you told me

That you loved me

And then you called me

Someone else's name


There ain't gonna be no more

Beggin' you please

You know what I want

And it ain't one of these

You're bad to the bone

And your girlfriend agreed

That falling in love is so hard on the knees


You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so

You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so


Chip off the old block

Man, you're so much like your sister

My fantasize it must be out of luck

My old libido has been

Blowing a transistor

I feel like I have been hit by a fuck

Yeah


I'm Jones' in' 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 key

'Cause falling in love is so hard on the knees


What are you looking for

It's got to be hard core

Must be some kind of nouveau riche

Is this your only chance

Or some hypnotic trance

Let's get you on a tighter leash



You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so

You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so

You ain't that good

Is what you said

Down to the letter

But you like the way

I hold the microphone

Sometimes I good but

When I'm bad I'm even badder

Don't give me no lip

I've got enough of my own


There ain't gonna be

No more beggin' you please

You know what I want

And it ain't one of these

You're bad to the bone

And your girlfriend agreed

That falling in love is so hard on the knees


I'm jonesin' on love

Yeah I got the DT's

You say that we will, yeah

But there ain't no guarantees

I'm major in love

But in all minor key

'Cause falling in love is so hard on the knees
