31EZNP9YP8L._SL500_AA180_.jpgApparently Aerosmith’s I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing is one of the UK’s favourite first dance songs. I totally can’t see it – if we’d had it as our first dance, I’d have been waving an imaginary lighter and my husband would have done air guitar – but a survey said it’s true and therefore, it must be true. And the lyrics *are* deeply romantic:

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
Far away and dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Well, every moment spent with you
Is a moment I treasure

You’ll find it on any relatively recent Aerosmith hits collection or the, ahem, Armageddon soundtrack. And if Steven Tyler’s voice is too screechy for you, you can also get versions by Michael Ball and Jane MacDonald. No, really.

Originality: 2 (apparently)

Tears-from-your-Mum Factor: 9

Inappropriate song of the week: Leaving On a Jet Plane (also from the Armageddon soundtrack)
