Dream On

Hey everybody

I recently heard Eminem's new single Sing for the Moment. I never really liked rap; however, I love the chorus of this song.

I learned that it comes from the Aerosmith song Dream On (I knew the title of the song but never bothered to check it out) and I must say I like it.

But the singer doesn't sound at all like Stephen Tyler, at least not like his voice in the more recent songs (1990-today).

So I'm wondering: who sings it? Tyler? Perry?

It's Stephen Tyler, although I also found it hard to believe when I first heard the song. But at the end, when he starts to scream/sing, it sounds a lot more recognizably like him.

Great song, btw.

I also noticed at the end that it sounded like him but I still can't picture him singing it...

Steven's voice was much different back then... not the raspy, more aged voice we hear from him today.

Ah, the only Aerosmith track I can stand.

Oh, and to be cynical (well, more so): If Eminem is going to sample another track as the chorus for his own, shouldn't he pick something a bit more obscure? It seems lazy to pick a song that everyone already knows and then make a hit out of it.

i saw aerosmith a couple of years ago in los angeles. i'm not a big fan, the tickets were a gift for my boyfriend at the time, so i went along. dream on was actually the highlight of the show. it was an outdoor show, and the song, and the stars...oh, it was really nice. it's a great song.
