Bill McClintock has made a name for himself as the go-to for musical mash-ups. This time, he may have outdone himself. Aerosmith is such a powerhouse of stadium rock bands. So how to you make one of their songs even better? Just add Aretha. The Queen of Soul lends her amazing vocals to one of Aerosmith’s most beloved hits. And what came out is pure gold.
This mash-up starts with that classic hit Sweet Emotion, which is some sweet listening on its own. Then, you get those smooth vocals from Aretha. And just when you think you’ve made it to the peek of musical perfection, that moment…when Aretha hits that high note over Joe Perry’s guitar lick. Can you imagine the energy if they had done this together live? Crazy.
