"The Other Side" is a song performed by American hard rock band Aerosmith, and written by Jim Vallance (music) and Steven Tyler (lyrics). It was released in 1990 as the fourth single from the band's highly successful 1989 album Pump.
The songwriting team of Holland-Dozier-Holland were eventually given songwriting credit on the song after threatening to file suit over what they perceived to be similarities between "The Other Side" and their song "Standing in the Shadows of Love".

Peaking at #22 on the Billboard Hot 100, the song marked a first for Aerosmith, as it became the fourth song from a single album of theirs to chart in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100. Only Get a Grip has equaled this feat. The live footage was filmed during part of the band's swing through the south. Clips from their shows in Tallahassee, Jackson, New Orleans, and Shreveport were used in the video.
The song won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Rock Video in 1991.
