No there is a song by Led Zeppelin called "Dream on" I haven't heard Aerosmith's version and I dont know when either of the songs were released but I know Led Zeppelin did that song, and actually Eminem did a cover of the Chorus in his song "Sing for the Moment".

well there is a track going around Lime Wire etc call Dream On, by Led Zeppelin! and it sounds like Jimmy not Steven.

Zeppelin DID do a song called Dream On, same lyrics as Aerosmith's. And I'm 99% sure that Zeppelin released it first, and it never caught on big until Aerosmith picked it up and did a remake of it.

BMI # 341548

gives "Dream On" to Steven Tyler.  I know it is hard to imaging, but it is unfortunately true.  I made the bet that Zepplin did it first, now I have to run down the street in drag yelling "It's free!"  Believe me.  I scoured both ASCAP and BMI and it is Aerosmith.

Pamm is correct. He did sing a song called Dream On. As a matter of fact, I'm listening to it right now, and it's a much better version. =D

Led Zeppelin did do a version of this song...Dream On. Growing up, I always heard the Zeppelin version on the radio, not the Aerosmith version.

If you go into YouTube, some people have used it, including a Japanese cartoon artist who is using or adapted the Zeppelin version of this song.

I know that Zeppelin did "Dream On" because I have it. I also have Aerosmith's version which is almost identical.

All points that it is an original 1973 Aerosmith song (their very first single) but lots of people and websites will list it and its lyrics under Led Zeppelin. The error may arise from the fact that Tyler didn't use his now trademark style and sounds a lot as LZ lead singer. I have a seen it on download collections of LZ. Probably the old age of the song, and so many people getting this pirate versions had increased the idea that this is a LZ song.

You people are foolih.  The "Led Zeppelin" Version is from the earliest self titled Aerosmith Album.  Tyler wrote it as a teen ager.  Led Zeppelin NEVER played or recorded dream on.  You can hear the "led Zeppelin" version on Aerosmiths Greatest Hits

I graduated from high school in 1972 and always heard Zeppelin version on the radio. Their lead singer has a lot more vibrato than Tyler with less add lib than Tyler's version which I first heard today 5-4-2015! Never knew Tyler did it till Ferelle mentioned it on The Voice. Tyler may well have sung it first given the fact that Led Zeppelin "borrowed" the guitar rifts and near lyrics of Stairway to Heaven from a little know musician. Compare those. Zeppelin "borrowed" a lot. Quite a disappointment to this 70's kid.

I`m not only a Zeppelin fanatic, but I have been collecting Zeppelin - including Jimmy Page and Robert Plant solo music & information - for over 27 years. I am truly a lover of Page/Plant music in & out of Zeppelin simply because of the honesty & integrity of it all. - I have been studying them for as long as I have been listening to Rock/Blues Music. Their interpretation of the blues is unlike any other. I look forward to any question and will answer the very best I can - as above all - I am just a fan like you! (Please understand my interest is in the music and people of REAL life; NOT in rumor or fantasy).
