We all lived together on 1325 Commonwealth Avenue; we used to listen to this Jeff Beck record called . Without learning any of the parts from that, I wanted to do something that evoked the feeling I got from it.
I picked up a guitar and wrote some parts that went along with the bass parts, and just kept it in the back of my mind."It stayed right there for a little while.
It was just unbelievable, when I first heard ' Sweet Emotion' with the lyrics on it.
I thought ' Wow, that is unbelievable.'"The bassist modestly says the track "became one of our fan favorites," when in reality it was Aerosmith's breakthrough single, paving the way for the next massive hit, "Walk This Way," and the successful re-release of the initially under-performing ballad "Dream On" from Aerosmith's first album."It's a style of putting a song together that I still love, which is keeping the basic structure very very simple, you know, maybe three parts," Hamilton adds.
"I think at one point during the sessions for our second album, (1974's) , I showed Steven what I was working on.
He was busy, so he didn't pay all that much attention to it, but he did make a couple of suggestions," Hamilton tells us.
100: Sammy Hagar, "I Can't Drive 55""Sweet Emotion" by Aerosmith earns the top spot on our Top 100 Classic Rock Songs list by embodying such an overwhelming portion of the intangible things that make the rest of the songs on our countdown so timeless. With that famously hypnotic yet somehow menacing opening bass riff, effortlessly interlocking and alternating "smooth" choruses and "crunchy" verses, Steven Tyler's highly evocative but never fully revealing lyrics and that bashing, reportedly improvised uptempo coda, "Sweet Emotion" has defended its spot atop classic rock radio airplay lists for nearly four decades.
Well, we've put an interesting twist on the format here at Ultimate Classic Rock: You'll still find all of the expected legends, from Aerosmith to ZZ Top, as our countdown unfolds over the coming days, but each band only gets one song on our list. Everybody puts their best hand on the table, and then we run down the rankings.
I started to show it to everybody, and by the end of the afternoon, I kinda showed everybody the parts, we were jamming on it, and refined it into the arrangement that became ' Sweet Emotion.'"If you're trying to figure out exactly how Hamilton got that exotic sound for his bass intro, you should know there's some unique percussion involved.
A bass marimba, similar but deeper in tone to the version of the instrument simulated on the ubiquitous default i Phone ring tone, also appears on the track.
Yet its origins remain something of a mystery, bassist and main "Sweet Emotion" songwriter Tom Hamilton tells us in an exclusive interview.
For instance, Hamilton is not sure if he did indeed write that beautiful bass line and the beginnings of the song back in high school, as some reports have stated"That little period tends to kind of run together. But it was right around that period, and I sat down, you know, got myself in my favorite state of mind," Hamilton said.
We very rarely knew what was going to be sung over these arrangements.
