As we wrote last week, Brides Magazine published interesting poll results of favorite wedding first dance songs by generation. A couple of these first dance songs crossed over two generations. One of them was “I don’t want to miss a thing,” which made the top three for both Millennials and Generation X.
The song has an interesting history. You may know it as a huge hit song by Aerosmith, but did you know it was actually written by Diane Warren for the movie, “Armageddon”? Aerosmith’s Steve Tyler sang the lead vocals while his daughter, Liv Tyler (above), was one of the stars of the movie.
Here’s the official music video featuring clips from the movie:
The song features great lyrics for your first dance song:
Don’t want to close my eyes
I don’t want to fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you, babe
And I don’t want to miss a thing
‘Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I’d still miss you, babe
And I don’t want to miss a thing.
Columbus Pro DJs can play a number of creative versions of this great song. For example, Boyce Avenue and Jennel Garcia collaborated on this tender cover:
On the other hand, perhaps you’d prefer a swinging cover featuring a brass band sung by Sara Anne Niemietz:
