“Love in an Elevator”, like the other tracks on Pump, were recorded sometime in April to June 1989 at Little Mountain Sound Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia. During the writing process, lead singer Steven Tyler is said to have come upon the concept of the song while researching famous battleships. Specifically, an instance on the Russian Battleship Navarin, in which one of the crew was famously quoted, as the ship was going down, “Мы должны жить вверх, в то время как мы теперь идем вниз,” or when translated “we must live upwards now, for it is downward we head.” Steven Tyler claims the song’s lyrics were inspired by an experience he had at a hotel, in which he was making out with a girl in the elevator and they started having sex as the doors opened; “It felt like a lifetime waiting for those doors to close,” quipped Tyler.
