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 was 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

Originally a rock song by Aerosmith, in 1986, Run–D.M.C. performed a cover of “Walk This Way” with Steven Tyler and Joe Perry guesting on vocals and guitars.

The 1986 version of the song is often credited as helping break hip hop music into mainstream pop music as it was the first hip hop song to hit the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the remake demonstrated how elements of hip hop music can be part of rock and pop songs. It also briefly samples the opening drum intro of the original in a middle section of the song. This version of “Walk This Way” charted higher on the Hot 100 than the original version, peaking at number 4.
