#43 – Aerosmith – “Jaded” – (2001)

Aerosmith has had more comebacks than just about any band I can think of. Prior to this song, Aerosmith’s last big hit (which was huge) was “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” – prior to that, it was 1994 since their last Top 40 smash. Just Push Play was the second or third or fourth or fifth coming of the band. It was a song that was perfect for the times, released as a single in December of 2000 – the 90s were still drawing to a close but things were changing but hadn’t changed drastically, yet. Interesting observation: what differentiated an adult contemporary hit (this song) from a pop hit in 2000 was that the video for this song received more airplay on VH1 than MTV.
