#59 – Aerosmith – “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” – (1998)

Remember Armageddon? The movie with Ben Affleck, Bruce Willis and… Liv Tyler? Diane Warren, who primarily wrote this song, said that Celine Dion was the original choice to sing it. Hmm, interesting that it ended up in the hands of Steven Tyler… Conspiracy theories aside, this was Aerosmith’s most successful single of their career, hitting number one and staying there for four weeks. It was also the most overplayed song of the late 90s. Aerosmith had a handful of successful singles from the 1993 album Get a Grip – they also had a minor hit in 1997 with “Pink” (which has a somewhat disturbing music video).
