The band Aerosmith came rocking along in the early 1970’s. They actually started forming in the 1960’s. This is a great band and these top 10 best songs by Aerosmith are my personal greatest hits picks by them! Here is my list!
1. Toys In The Attic. This fast moving, hard rocking hit is a very cool song. It has the unique sound that only Aerosmith can make. This song stood out in the rock sound of that time and it is memorable. It’s power and fast pace blew many rock music critics away. In a good way! A great 70’s rock song.
2. Dream On. A dreamy dream of a classic rock song that is one of the most popular songs by this band. The moving lyrics, singing and, well, everything about this song leaves a lasting impression that rings in the musical ears long after the song is over. This is one of my very favorite songs by Aerosmith. It is worthy of being on my top 10 best songs by Aerosmith list. A passionate and very emotional song that will be played on classic rock and roll stations forever. We all have dreams. Dream on. This song climbs toward heaven steadily. It’s message is “Dream on until your dreams come true” and who can argue with that logic? Not me.
3. Sweet Emotion. This song does indeed have sweet emotion. It is clever, cute, funny and loveable. It has been featured in movies. It is a very unique song with it’s own classic rock Aerosmith trademark sound. It even goes beyond that wonderfully with it’s deep, smooth and almost underwater feel.

Aerosmith tackled this subject with force and talent. Bravo. It deals with the real emotions. This song is a Grammy winner, by the way. Fantastic!
7. The Other Side. This 90’s Aerosmith hit is swinging, rocking and it is constant in all of that. A steady beat that I love. This song always had a curious and adventuresome feel to it, to me.
