Sweet Emotion

Have you seen the trailer for Disney/Pixar's upcoming animated opus Inside Out yet? If so, you no doubt noticed they use Aerosmith's Sweet Emotion as the trailer's soundtrack.

It's an awesome song, even after all these years. I'm not sure what it's doing in a trailer for a kid's movie though, as it's a bit... suggestive.

Don't believe me? Here's the official lyrics:

Sweet emotion.
Sweet emotion.

Talk about things and nobody cares
Wearing other things that nobody wears
You're callin' my name, but I gotta make it clear
I can't say, baby, where I'll be in a year.

Some sweat hog mama with a face like a gent
Said my get up and go musta got up & went.
Well, I got good news: she's a real good liar'
Cause a backstage boogie set your pants on fire.

Sweet emotion.
Sweet emotion.

I pulled into town in a police car
Your daddy said I took it just a little too far.
You're tellin' other things, but your girlfriend lied
You can't catch me 'cause the rabbit done died.
Yes it did.

Standin' in front just shakin' your ass.
I take you backstage you can drink from my glass.
I talk about something you can sure understand'
Cause a month on the road and I'll be eatin' from your hand.

I'm betting the suits over at Disney never bothered to listen past the first ten seconds of the song. If they had, the hair on their collective heads would be standing straight up right about now, particularly at the "Standin' in front just shakin' your ass" line.

And don't forget the immortal lyric, "You can't catch me 'cause the rabbit done died." Remember boys, next time you get your underage girlfriend pregnant, don't worry about it! Just skip town and leave her to deal with your mess nine months later! Disney said so!
