Aerosmith - I Don't Want to Miss a Thing

Written by Michael Ward, London, UK -
I was watching Armageddon and I didn’t want to miss a thing.  Then, this came on. I instantly asked my mum “who sings this song?” She told me that it was sung by Aerosmith. It turned out they were an American rock band with more than a bit of history.

I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by the band Aerosmith was the single most important song of my life. If it was not for this song being one of the soundtracks to the movie Armageddon, I would hate to think what type of music I would be listening to today. I say this because this song kicked off my new found love for rock music – and I haven’t looked back since.

After I listened to this song, I went and found an old Aerosmith CD and listened to it.  Revelation! Even to this day, I still listen to this song. It helped me to realize that rap music (which I had almost exclusively listened to up to this point) wasn't my cup of tea so I put that down and picked up rock music. I now love rock music and listen to it every single day. Thank you Aerosmith :)

I live in South London and will starting my final year at college soon :) Wish me luck!
