So how long has the Aerosmith song "Dream On" been around? Over 40 years or something like that?
You'd think that I'd check a particular lyric in the song to see what it really was, but I just never got around to it.
No, I'm not talking about the line "Dream on" or the screamed line "DREAM ON." I was pretty sure I had those right.
I'm talking about the one that I heard as "All Athenians come back to you." I didn't think I was hearing that one right. After all, Steven Tyler is no Jim Morrison. For one thing, Steven Tyler survived.
So I finally Binged the lyrics to "Dream On," and discovered the lyric in question was
All these feelings come back to you
I still prefer my misheard version.
Although I guess it would be more appropriate for a Styx song.
Incidentally, I still think that "Dream On" is Aerosmith's best song - even better than "Janie's Got a Gun." It must be rough when you hit your songwriting peak early in your career.
