How members of Aerosmith and the public reacted to ‘I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’
“I kind of knew it was a hit, but I didn’t really like the song,” Kramer told Loudersound. “I didn’t think that song was us…. It was difficult to imagine what kind of touch Aerosmith could put on it and make it our own. When we finally did make it our own, that’s when it became what it is. It was just a question of learning the song and playing it as a band. As soon as we began playing it as a band, then it instantly became an Aerosmith song.”
However, Kramer admitted he doesn’t particularly care for “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” even with the changes. Regardless, he credits the song’s success for allowing Aerosmith to extend their Nine Lives world tour. The tour ultimately included over 200 dates.

Meanwhile, The Ringer reports Aerosmith member Joe Perry thought the song was beautiful albeit less masculine than Aerosmith’s other power ballads. It certainly doesn’t have the edge of, for example, “Dream On.” However, “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” was released during the 1990s, an era where soft movie ballads like “I Will Always Love You,” “My Heart Will Go On,” and “Colors of the Wind” dominated the charts.
With that in mind, “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” feels tailor-made for its time. Billboard reports the song became the band’s only No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 — showing Streisand’s influence exists outside of pop music.
