Martha Wash Covering Aerosmith Classic

(Radio.com) In 1982, when The Weather Girls struck chart gold with their hit "It's Raining Men," it would have been hard to imagine one of the members of the duo covering Aerosmith decades later.

But surprise! Martha Wash has a new solo album out, and it features one rather unexpected song: Aerosmith's "Dream On."

Wash told Radio.com that she was surprised when her manager suggested she record the classic. "He told me that I needed to do a cover. I wasn't sure I wanted to do that. But he came up with 'Dream On.' I'd always liked the song. I said, 'OK, that can work!' It's a very well known song. But my thinking is, as long as you can do it as well as the original artist or better then, cool! The way I did it was slightly different from the way Steven Tyler sings it, but I wanted to do my own interpretation. I knew people would be surprised that I was doing it." more on this story
