Allyson's Favorite Top 5 Video Countdown - Number 3

You already know that I love Michael Jackson's "You Rock My World" and Poison's "Unskinny Bop." Let's continue my favorite video countdown. What video lands in my top 3 position? "Cryin'" by Aerosmith of course.


You might recall, "Cryin'" features Alicia Silverstone and was the first in a video trilogy that helped Aerosmith sell a boatload of copies of Get a Grip. I'm pretty sure "Cryin'" was retired by MTV in their daily afternoon countdown. It was that popular! The clip also won a video of the year award. Remember when those awards meant something?



Check back tomorrow to find out which video comes in at number two.

I concur...best Aerosmith vid...and MY fave song by them as well. I remember watching this and admiring what a great job Joey Kramer did at making his best "Animal" impression (from the Muppets). This seemed like a prelude to Alicia's role in "The Crush". Good call.

Hah!

"Janie's Got A Gun", though pretty much of a downer, is their best video, directed by David Fincher...

Check out those glimmering squad car lights through the rought iron gate in that crane shot toward the end.

What a shot!
