Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” was originally written for Celine Dion.
1998’s “Armageddon” would have sounded a lot different if not for Aerosmith’s power ballad “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.” Especially if it went to the artist it was intended for … Celine Dion.
Since the film starred singer Steven Tyler’s daughter Liv, the band was set to write a song for the soundtrack. Yet with the band running low on time and ideas, they went with a song written by Diane Warren for Dion.
“I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” went on to hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts, was nominated for an Oscar, and became one of Aerosmith’s biggest hits.
