The database states the following comment regarding Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing":

(dj copies of this cd single run (4:27), the "pop radio edit - no orchestra intro", (4:57) the "pop mix", and (4:29) not (4:48) as stated on the cd single - the "rock mix")

As a supplement to the DJ info above, I thought I'd pass along that my commercial CD single copy has an actual run time of 4:57 (printed time is 4:58).

This brings me to my next question... Does anyone know if there's a difference between the "Pop Mix" on the promo CD single and the 45/LP version?

Todd, I believe your Promo Only CD has the Pop Mix (with intro). If you have a chance, perhaps you can compare them. I don't have the 45/LP vers.

Pat's current database notes are correct, but I thought I'd provide more complete promo CD single details for it, since we received in three different, 1-track promo CD singles for it (which was unusual) back in 1998:

Aerosmith-"I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" (CSK 41241)
1-Pop Mix (listed & actual time 4:58) (FYI, this was the version we played on-air as a current)

Aerosmith-"I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" (CSK 41242)
1-Rock Mix (listed 4:58; actual 4:30) (please note the :28 second difference between the listed/actual times)(this version starts cold, with Tyler's vocal "I can't stay awake")

Aerosmith-"I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" (CSK 41306)
1-Pop Radio Edit No Orchestra (listed 4:28; actual 4:27) (there were probably 1998 radio station requests for a "Pop Edit" version that was edited the same way that the "Rock Mix" was, featuring that same, cold, Tyler vocal at the start. That's my guess as to why this third promo was issued in the first place, after the first two had been issued.)

The station I worked for only played the "Pop Radio Edit No Orchestra" version.

Pat, your new database modification for this song's "Rock Mix" states a listed time of (4:48) - this is incorrect. The correct listed time, and the one I originally indicated above, is in fact (4:58).

Aaron:

Actually, the version on my Promo Only Mainstream Radio subscription series appears to be identical to the 45/LP version, except it fades :10 sooner (run time: 4:50). It also doesn't mention anything on the track listing about this being a "pop mix"... I've found that Promo Only will usually indicate specific versions or mixes when applicable.

First of all, shame on them for fading early! Secondly, I've found that Promo Only will sometimes indicate a version, but they are very inconsistent. For example, on that same disc, track 1 is "Stay (Wasting Time)" by Dave Matthews Band, and it is either the "Remix Edit" or "Album Edit" (not sure which), because the run time is a full one minute shorter than the album version.

While it is possible that they took the song directly from the soundtrack, it might also be that the "Pop Mix" and 45/LP version are indeed the same. The mystery remains...

Good points, Aaron. I'm going to see if I can a dub of the "Pop Mix" from the promo CD single and compare it to the commercial CD single, which I do have.

my commercial cd single issued as columbia 78952 has three tracks on it

1-i don't want to miss a thing (4:58)
2-animal crackers (2:36)
3-taste of india (rock remix) (5:52)

no listing for "pop mix radio version" but that version has the same run time as track one on the commercial cd single......

I believe I can finally answer the question I put forth in my initial post on this thread nearly five years ago! I've since acquired what is billed as the "Pop Mix" of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" and a subsequent A/B comparison to the single/album version reveals they are indeed identical.

Now, I should disclose that the "Pop Mix" I have comes from the Austrian import CD single, which also contains the "Rock Mix" and the "Pop Radio Edit - No Orchestra", both of which match Jim's descriptions of the same mixes appearing on his promo CD singles. I would also add that the "Rock Mix" is unique in that contains no strings at all throughout the entire song.

Bumping this thread up to make an observation.

My local Hot AC station in Philly (Star 1045) played a version of the song that
cuts the part from 3:48 to 4:13, where Steven Tyler begins to scream the
chorus. Since I can't find any listing for this special version on Discogs, I'm
assuming that it was an in-house edit. Did anybody else do this?

If I had to guess, I'd say this is an in-house edit from the iheartradio
central library. The Star station in Dallas is playing the same edit. Bill
Cahill might know the origin, but I do not believe it was ever issued
officially by Columbia with the screaming part edited out.

I should've clarified this was back when the song was a current in 1998. The
station was owned by Chancellor.

I'm pretty sure that "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" was never issued officially with that screaming section edited out. I don't believe that
the song was serviced to AC radio as a current. But sometimes Adult Contemporary Radio Programmers ignore songs when they are currents, as
they are too "rough" or whatever, but then a few years later determine that they are playable with some editing. I assumed the source was TM
Century Gold Disc (they would sometimes make a later edit for AC for oldie play) as I had access to it in the early 2000s, but it could have
come from Chancellor and then floated around elsewhere.

The only two versions of the song in the TM library are the "Pop Mix" and the "Pop Radio Edit No Orchestra Intro." I checked both versions, and they have the screaming.

I believe it was served to AC and Hot AC as a current, as it peaked at #13 on
Billboard's AC chart and #2 on the Adult Top 40 Chart.

The stock 45 offers a curious lineup but at 14 minutes, it delivers
excellent value.

Side A has the Pop Mix followed by “Animal Crackers,” a mix of movie
dialogue along with themes from “Miss a Thing”. (Like the CD single, it
has a third track, “Taste Of India” on the B side.)

This brings total running time on the side to nearly 8 minutes, which
surprises me. I would think jukebox operators, who bought most 45s
by 1998, wouldn’t be thrilled with the quieter grooves, or that it cut into
profits — after all, longer songs mean less revenue per hour!

The song made it to #41 for the year at AC Radio for 1998, but I didn't start programming at AC Radio until 1999. I just don't remember ever
running into a label supplied edit that had the screeching cut out, maybe somebody else has.
