Harper's Headbanging Hits

Today's song recommendation is "Kings and Queens" by Aerosmith from their 1977 "Draw the Line" album. The portrait of the band on the album cover was drawn by the celebrity caricaturist Al Hirschfeld.

""Kings and Queens" is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It was written by Steven Tyler, Brad Whitford, Tom Hamilton, Joey Kramer, and Jack Douglas, their producer, who helped the band write many of the songs on Draw the Line. Douglas also played the mandolin featured in the song. The song first appeared on the album Draw the Line in December 1977 and was released as a single on February 21, 1978. The song was also used as a B-side to Aerosmith's version of The Beatles' "Come Together", released to promote the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band film and soundtrack. The song was a staple of Aerosmith concerts in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and was included on the album Classics Live!." (From Wikipedia)

"Kings and Queens" is one of my all time favorite Aerosmith songs, and I don't think that it gets the love and respect it deserves. Its Peak Position was #70 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in the United States in 1978. Definitely give it a listen if you are not very familiar with this awesome song. Unfortunately, this song has been overshadowed by other Aerosmith songs, but this song gets a huge thumbs up from me!
