Friday Music Challenge: Jim helping Melanie

This is what I love about blogging, people helping other people out.
Jim is temporarily back in the hot seat as Melanie recovers from her eye surgery, and his theme this week is music from blockbuster films.
First thing that came to mind was this:

Aerosmith is an American rock band formed in Boston in 1970. The group consists of Steven Tyler (lead vocals), Joe Perry (guitar), Tom Hamilton (bass), Joey Kramer (drums) and Brad Whitford (guitar). Their style, which is rooted in blues-based hard rock, has also incorporated elements of pop rock, heavy metal, glam metal, and rhythm and blues and has inspired many subsequent rock artists.
They are sometimes referred to as “the Bad Boys from Boston” and “America’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band”. The primary songwriting team of Tyler and Perry is often known as the “Toxic Twins”.

Liv Tyler who was Ben Affleck’s love interest in the movie is Steven Tyler’s daughter.

It’s hard to believe that Armageddon was released in 1998. Despite mostly negative reviews, the film was a commercial success, grossing $553 million worldwide and becoming the highest-grossing film of 1998. Astronomers noted that the similar disaster film Deep Impact was more scientifically accurate.

The film received four Academy Award nominations at the 71st Academy Awards, for Best Sound (Kevin O’Connell, Greg P. Russell and Keith A. Wester), Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Effects Editing, and Best Original Song (“I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” performed by Aerosmith). The film received the Saturn Awards for Best Direction and Best Science Fiction Film (where it tied with Dark City).
It was also nominated for seven Razzie Awards including: Worst Actor (Bruce Willis), Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, Worst Supporting Actress (Liv Tyler), Worst Screen Couple (Tyler and Ben Affleck) and Worst Original Song. Only one Razzie was awarded: Bruce Willis received the Worst Actor award for Armageddon, in addition to his appearances in Mercury Rising and The Siege, both released in the same year as this film.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I liked Armageddon and Mercury Rising, but I guess that is because I am a big Bruce Willis fan. Nice choice Di, and thanks for joining in with this lovely Aerosmith song.

    I’m not a big fan of disaster flicks but this one wasn’t as bad as so many seemed to think! A nice trip down memory lane with this song!
