RollingStone.com have been premiering the album, one track at a time, in the weeks leading up to the release.
'Something' begins with an inspirational swelling of Hammond organ right out of Southern gospel. Things quickly get nasty from there with some bluesy guitar crunch from Joe Perry, who wrote the song, and bounces from a Rolling Stones-style twang to a melodic BEATLES-like chorus. Aerosmith's guitarist also sings this one himself, sneering to villains past and present, "You knew there was dreams I had in my corner/ I made you a dollar and you gave me a quarter."
For Perry, the bite and drama comes from a real place. "I wrote 'Something' a long time ago, back when there was a whole other batch of people around us: lawyers, managers that I was really pissed off at," the guitarist tells Rolling Stone. "It's a short bit of angst and pissed-off-ness about these people that ripped us off forever. The funny thing is that 20 years later, there's a whole new batch of people I'm pissed off at. The lyrics still work."
