Dream On was a very important song for Steven Tyler. He knew that he had something special with it and that it was the key to launching the band. Aerosmith were real nobody's that Columbia Records didn't see much potential in. They were pouring money and production into Bruce Springsteen and giving Aerosmith the scraps.

Tyler was not confident in his voice. He didn't feel it sounded manly enough, so when it came time to sing in the studio, he changed it to sound more macho--a real screw up (and it sounds really weird if you've never heard it before--just listen any other song from their debut album). However, Dream On was so important to him that he sucked it up and sang it in his natural voice.

When I heard GXV's version, I thought that it was pretty cool. However, it's hard to have the same connection to it when you've enjoyed the original for years.
