The uppers are the upbeat tracks that make you dance and sing, a treat that will pleasantly surprise Fisher fans. And the downers are, of course, the songs that make listeners feel, those "reactive" songs that Fisher have become known for.

  "Uppers & Downers" [? | 2002]



COVERED BY: EMINEM

INFO: While not an actual "cover," a sample from Dream On is used in the chorus of Eminem's hit single "Sing for the Moment". Eminem tracked down Aerosmith in Detroit 2002. He played a rough version of the song for them and asked if they minded adding to it. Aerosmith were happy to so Perry put some guitar on a loop that Eminem sent them. "It's great. The song lives again in another form." Perry says. Perry's guitar solo remained on Eminem's record, but Tyler's new vocals for "Dream On" were cut out because Eminem "liked the vibe of the old days better".

INCLUDED ON:
  "The Eminem Show" [Interscope | 2002]
  "Sing for the Moment" (single) [Interscope | 2003]

NOT REALLY AEROSMITH COVERS

The appended songs listed in this section were written by other songwriters but Aerosmith made them their own.


 CHIP AWAY THE STONE
Live! Bootleg [1978]

NOTE: Now, most would say this is an Aerosmith song. But, this song was recorded and released two times before Aerosmith first released it on their album "Live! Bootleg" (and later on "Gems" and the boxed set "Pandora's Box."). Since Aerosmith was not the first artist to record this song, I cannot include it in the list above.

COVERED BY: THE JONESES

Does anyone out there own this album? If so, can you please scan the cover of it and e-mail it to me. Thanks!
INFO: The Richie Supa track "Chip Away The Stone" is said to have been recorded by a band called The Joneses in 1986 for their debut LP titled "Keepin' up with the Joneses" for Dr Dream records.

Not to be confused the soul group of the late 60's/early 70's with the same name who confusingly enough also had a release called "Keepin' Up With the Joneses". That album was released on Mercury Records in 1974 and does NOT include "Chip Away The Stone".

INCLUDED ON:
  "Keepin' Up With The Joneses" [Dr Dream Records | 1986] (?)



COVERED BY: RICHARD SUPA

INFO: The second(?) to record it was Richie Supa himself on his album "Tall Tales".

INCLUDED ON:
  "Tall Tales" [Polydor Records | 1978]



COVERED BY: HUMBLE PIE

INFO: Reformed Humble Pie covered the Richie Supa track on their last album "Go For The Throat". Another Supa track, "Restless Blood" was also featured.

INCLUDED ON:
  "Go For The Throat" [Jet/Atco | 1981]


 I DON'T WANT TO MISS A THING
Armageddon (soundtrack) [1998]

COVERED BY: MARK CHESNUTT

INFO: Country star, Mark Chesnutt recorded the song "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" which was written by Diane Warren (but first recorded by Aerosmith) on his seventh album album, which he decided to give the title "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing"...

 WALKIN' THE DOG
Aerosmith [1973]

COVERED BY: RATT

INFO: Ratt recorded and released the song "Walkin' The Dog" on thier self-titled debut album. Now, "Walkin' The Dog" is not originally an Aerosmith song. Rufus Thomas wrote and recorded this song and released it on his album "Walking The Dog" which was released on Stax Records in 1963. But, Ratt recorded and released this song "in honor of Aerosmith" and Aerosmith's version of the song...

INCLUDED ON:
