Coming in at # 10 on my favorite songs from 1986 series is Run DMC's version of Walk this way, with Aerosmith, it was the first hip hop song to break the Billboard hot 100, coming in at # 4, that's a pretty big accomplishment, it also won the soul train music award for best rap single. Very memorable song though. I am sure most of you know it. Check out a small sample of the lyrics below. So I took a big chance at the high school dance. With a lady who was ready to play. It wasn't me she was foolin. Cause she knew what she was doin. When she told me how to walk this way. She told me to walk this way. Talk this way. Walk this way, talk this way. Well just gimme a kiss. Ooh alike this! Some information verified at Wikipedia. I still remember seeing them perform this on TV with Aerosmith, it helped rejuvenate their career.

I liked what they did with this. You're right about Aerosmith. They had become kind of a joke by this point. They became superstars again after this.

@TRBRocks420 - "Love in an Elevator" was the big hit when I saw them.

@teamfreak16 That was earlier though I think right with the pump album or I take that back Pump wasn't until 89.

@TRBRocks420 - That is when I saw them, so it would have been the Pump tour.

First rock and hiphop collaboration. The video was great as well.

I LOVE THIS SONG! Oddly, I first heard it when Scott Hamilton skated to it on a televised skating special. I remember him doing a back flip, and just loving the song.

Scott Hamilton was the best. I am sure he will be on commentary, for the winter Olympics.
