Aerosmith – Love In An Elevator
It was mid August 1989 when Aerosmith released “Love in an elevator”, the first hit from their new album “Pump”. We had not been hearing from them since more than one year, the days of “Rag doll“. This hit was really a blast. Not only a fantastic hit with an incredible energy, but also an outstanding video and peculiar lyrics. And this hit became one of the symbols of Aerosmith’s entire career.
When people ask him about how he created this song, Steven Tyler tells exactly the story that we expect from him… I remembered a story that I once lived, in an elevator… a party… lots of girls… Exactly what we expect from a hit by Aerosmith with this title and with the lyrics full of double meanings.
Actually another story says that Tyler might have read story of a Russian battleship where someone wrote “We live it up while we are going down” while sinking. But finally just one thing is important: “love in an elevator” is a fantastic song, that since the 80s marked the entire history of rock!
