#42 – Aerosmith – “Cryin’” – (1993)

This list is simply titled “rock songs” and we’re going all over the rock genre: from synthpop to bluesy power ballad. Check that, a bluesy power ballad with Alicia Silverstone in the music video. I’ll be honest, I don’t particularly enjoy listening to this song. “So why’d you pick it?” Well, “Livin’ on the Edge” sounds like it’s from the 80s, “Crazy” is even worse, and anything from later in the decade doesn’t have the same Aerosmith feel to it that these early-90s songs do. And Aerosmith needed to be represented on this list – they were major artists in the decade (we used “I Don’t’ Want to Miss a Thing” on the other countdown). You know who else is in this video? Sawyer from Lost.
