Program Notes

Walk This Way is a song by the American hard rock band Aerosmith. Written by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, the song was originally released as the second single from the 1975 album Toys in the Attic.

The lyrics, which tell the story of a high school boy losing his virginity, are sung quite fast by Tyler, with heavy emphasis being placed on the rhyming lyrics (e.g., "so I took a big chance at the high school dance"). The story goes that the title was based on the joke in Mel Brooks's movie Young Frankenstein in which Marty Feldman tells Gene Wilder to follow him, and Wilder does follow, imitating Feldman's limping walk.
