ROCK N ROLL FRIDAYS meme: Aerosmith

Hi I'm DJ KathyA! Welcome to Rock 'n Roll Fridays. We are like other memes in that we will ask you thirteen questions each and every Friday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a singer, band, era or category and pick thirteen of their songs. Each of our questions will be based on the lyrics.
Today we picked Aerosmith.

1. Dream On “Every time that I look in the mirror, All these lines in my face getting clearer. The past is gone. It went by like dusk to dawn. Isn’t that the way. Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay” Do you pay dues or something such as a membership in a union, church, civic group, gang, etc?
Does a subscription to REAL SIMPLE magazine count?

I love PBGBs, Coonhounds and terriers for the most part. I love all dogs.

3. Sweet Emotion “You stand in the front just a shakin your ass. I’ll take you backstage you can drink from my glass…” Have you ever been backstage at a concert to meet the band? If not, what band would you like to meet backstage?
I have been backstage with Devo and also A Flock of Seagulls. lol! As a kid, I daydreamed about being backstage with Paul Revere & the Raiders and The Monkees.

4. Walk This Way “So I took a big chance at the high school dance with a missy who was ready to play…” What was the first song you ever danced to at a school dance?
Bob Anderson, a mixed race 8th grader, (13), asked me, a gawky whitey 7th grader (12) to dance to "Joy To The World" by 3 Dog Night. It was a profound moment in my life. I found confidence to keep dancing and became quite good at it by 18.

5. Crazy “You’re packin up your stuff and talkin like it’s tough. And tryin to tell me that it’s time to go, yeah. But I know you ain’t wearin nothing underneath that overcoat. And it’s all a show, yeah.” Ever worn your PJs in public?
Only as a joke in High School for costume day.

6. Cryin “I was cryin when I met you. Now I’m tryin to forget you. Your love is sweet misery.” What is the worst film you went to see in the past 5 years?
Probably one of the later Harry Potter films. Creepy and the kids were rude to each other.
