Hans’ Pick of the Day

Rag Doll” is a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith. It is from the 1987 album Permanent Vacation. It was released as the final single from the album in 1988. It was written by Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Jim Vallance, and Holly Knight.
The song’s lyrics were primarily written by Tyler and Vallance, Perry originating the guitar riff, and Vallance writing the bass line. The song was originally titled “Rag Time” but John Kalodner didn’t like that, so Holly Knight was called in to help change that lyric. She suggested “Rag Doll”, which was actually another title Steven and Jim thought of, but Holly ended up getting credits just for two words. Steven was horrified about this and often complained to his manager.
It peaked at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100, #12 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and #42 on the UK charts.

Hans’ Pick of the Day

Man in the Mirror” is a song by Michael Jackson. It peaked at number one in the United States when released as a single in early 1988 off his seventh solo album, Bad. It is one of Jackson’s most critically acclaimed songs and it was nominated for Record of the Year at the Grammy Awards. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks. It was only a moderate hit in the UK at the time of its release, peaking at number 21 and becoming the only single from Bad not to reach the UK Top 20 on first release. However, in 2009, following the news of Jackson’s death, the song peaked at number two in the official UK Singles Chart, behind Cascada‘s “Evacuate the Dancefloor,” having re-entered the chart at 11 the previous week.
