Dream On (4:26)

Cover of Aerosmith

From Aerosmith and 112 other releases

“Dream On” is the first single by Aerosmith from their 1973 debut album, Aerosmith. Written by lead singer Steven Tyler, this blues-influenced power ballad became their first major hit. Although it peaked at #59 when it was originally released as a single in 1973, it became a Top 10 single in 1976, peaking at #6, when it was re-released as a single. This song was first played live in Willimantic, CT at the Shaboo Inn.

Song was re-done by Aerosmith in 2007 for the game “Guitar Hero: Aerosmith”.
According to the Dream On Songfacts, Tyler said :”It’s about the hunger to be somebody: Dream until your dreams come true.”

Eminem sampled the song for his 2003 hit single Sing for the Moment. In it, Joe Perry of Aerosmith plays the guitar solo at the end of the song, and Steven Tyler sings the song’s chorus.

All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn

    Gosh I was a year old when this song came out - I grew up with it. This song was extremely popular throughout the 1980s! A wonderful power ballad. <3

    I believe I am the only person who thinks that in this song Steven Tyler sounds a little bit like Klaus Meine or?
