Why Aerosmith sang a song meant for Celine Dion
Movie ballads were huge in the 1990s. It’s like you couldn’t finish a sentimental 1990s movie without hearing Dion, Whitney Houston, or Peabo Bryson sing over the credits. Aerosmith came to this trend by doing something unexpected – an emotional ballad for an action movie rather than a sentimental drama. However, they originally had no plans to sing a song that was written for Dion.
According to Mental Floss, Aerosmith was planning to write a song for Armageddon, a film starring Steven Tyler’s daughter Liv Tyler. However, they were unable to write a song that would fit the movie, and time was of the essence. Ultimately, they decided to record “I Don’t Want To Miss Anything,” a song that Diane Warren wrote for Dion. Warren is famous for writing songs for numerous artists including Cher, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Tina Turner.

In an interview with ShortList, Warren discussed her reaction to Tyler’s singing on the track. “[W]When I wrote that song, what was so cool about when Aerosmith did it, when Steven Tyler sang it, it became different because when you hear a girl sing this – when I wrote it, I thought it was going to end up like Celine Dion or someone, you know, used to be – I mean who’s a great singer – but it’s so much cooler to hear someone like Steven Tyler – that gruff macho rock star, that amazing tough guy – he can say That lyric just gave it a whole different dimension, ”Warren said.
“I don’t think it would have been the same hit or standard if it hadn’t been for someone like Steven Tyler to do this song.” She added, “[Tyler] I ended up doing all of these really great singing things that were so amazing – I mean, I think that’s one of the best vocals ever. ”
