Friday Flashback


Friday Flashback is me celebrating the music I have loved throughout my life. Last week we had Black Velvet by Allanah Miles. This week is Aerosmith ft. Run DMC performing Walk This Way.

I've always loved this version because it is, in a word, fun. It was one of the first instances of what is now common on MTV's Mash Up or CMT's Crossroads. Two artists from completely different genres teaming up to make music that is fun for them and for the listener.

Update
Okay, it's been a slow day at work and I've spent the last 30 minutes watching videos on Youtube, and I had to include one more here. Allow me to introduce you to the Orange County Supertones. This is from their fifth and final album, and it was the first single off that album. They are Christian artists, and, imho, one of the greatest ska-punk bands of all time. Also, if you are wondering about the "Bleach" sticker on the bell of the trombone, Bleach is a lesser known Christian rock band. I may link to them in the future.

I have a great story to share with you that involves me and a mosh pit at their concert, but I'll save that for next week. How's that for a teaser?

In the mean time, crank up your sound and enjoy. I dare you to not enjoy this. Especially around the 2:20 mark when the janitor starts dancing.

Labels:

Very cool vids, Frank. Man, today's rappers have me pining for Run DMC. How about 'Christmas in Hollis?'
