NP Sneek Peek!

Aerosmith - Love In An Elevator
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3Yrhv33Zb8

Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...

(from Wikipedia)

"Love in an Elevator" is a song performed by American hard rock band Aerosmith, written by Steven Tyler and guitarist/backing vocalist Joe Perry. It was released in August 1989 as the lead single from their third album with Geffen Records, Pump, released in September (see 1989 in music). It peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached number 1 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

The video for the song, considered by many to be a definitive music video for Aerosmith, starts off with the band walking up to a department store elevator, and an attractive woman (Brandi Brandt) says "2nd floor...hardware, children's wear, lady's lingerie. Oh, good morning Mr. Tyler, going down?" Steven Tyler enters the elevator and the song starts.

The video flashes back and forth between the band performing live and scenes from the department store. The scenes in the department store and elevator include Brad Whitford being hypnotized by fake department store models turning into real ones when he's not looking, Joey Kramer dressed up like a woman, Joe Perry and his wife (both topless) kissing in the elevator, Tyler kissing the female department store clerk, and Tom Hamilton playing his bass grooves, in addition to the odd performances of other random characters, including a butcher, a fat lady, midgets, the Tin Man and Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz, and a male model.

At the end of the song, all the band members gather around the microphone to sing "Love in an Elevator...lovin' it up when I'm going down". And then it flashes back to a scene in which the elevator doors close.

The video was directed by Marty Callner, who produced many of the band's Geffen-era music videos in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The woman with the male little person in the video is Dee Booher, better known as Queen Kong in the Los Angeles area. She also wrestled on TV show G.L.O.W. as Matilda the Hun.




(from songfacts)

This is a song about love, elevators, and the combination thereof. Lyrically, Aerosmith has some songs with a deeper meaning, but many of their songs have fun lyrics set to tracks that show off their musicianship.

They also have plenty of experiences to draw from that make great fodder for stories and songs. As Steven Tyler tells it, this one was inspired by one of his pre-sobriety days when he found himself in a hotel hot tub with a bevy of women. When they moved the party to his room, they piled into the hotel elevator wearing nothing but towels and bathrobes. One of the ladies decided to have some fun and push all the buttons in the elevator, which brought it down to the lobby. When one of the girls opened her robe to show Tyler her goods, the elevator doors opened, giving the crowded lobby a look.


Steven Tyler wrote this song with Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry. Musically, it was a fusion of different ideas they came up with at a jam session - Buddy Miles was an influence.

Tyler came up with the lyrics, but was concerned that the title was too juvenile. Perry pointed out that they already had a song called "Dude (Looks Like A Lady)" which worked out very well for them, so they went with "Love In An Elevator."


All five members of Aerosmith sing the last chorus a capella; in live performances, they all sing into the same microphone.
