This Is One Cover You Wouldn’t Want To Miss!

It’s interesting to know that U2 was the first band asked to perform this track for Armageddon. But after Liv Tyler signed up as part of the cast, the idea of Aerosmith singing the soundtrack was conceived. I bet they had no regrets though since this song was such a huge success. It didn’t just become Aerosmith’s biggest hit but it also earned them a huge fan base.

The band was on the wane and facing the possibility of empty seats when they resumed their tour at the end of the summer, but this song revived their fortunes. The tour resumed on September 9, when “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” was the #1 song in America. The album title proved prescient, as once again they became the most popular rockers in the land, still cranking out hits while their contemporaries like The Rolling Stones were forced to lean on their legacies to sell tickets.

If you noticed in the music video, Steven Tyler was stationary while performing which is quite unusual for him. He was actually wearing a brace due to a knee injury when this was shot. That pretty much restricted his movement. Nevertheless, it received heavy airplay on MTV.

The Armageddon soundtrack, bolstered by this song, went to #1 in the US. It contained three other Aerosmith songs: “Sweet Emotion,” their cover of “Come Together,” and a new song called “What Kind of Love Are You On,” which they had recorded for their Nine Lives album but didn’t make the cut.

If you love Aerosmith’s original recording, you HAVE to listen to this saxophone cover. It gave me goosebumps. It’s absolutely awesome! It’s so relaxing to listen to and definitely something you’d love to play on weekends — or every day of the week.
