March 5, 1999: Aerosmith record Diane Warren song, "Blue Eyes Blue" for the film "Runaway Bride". They later opt out of the project leaving Eric Clapton to record the song for the film soundtrack (released July 1999). Tyler agrees the song didn't fit the image of Aerosmith.

April 2000: MTV News reported Aerosmith had recorded "Painted On My Heart", a ballad by Diane Warren, for the upcoming Nicolas Cage movie ''Gone in 60 Seconds". When the soundtrack was released in June, 2000, the track, which opened the album, was now performed by The Cult.

Tyler/Perry/Frederiksen). Remaking the track ensures no royalites have to be paid to Leber/Krebs to use the track. There seems no plans to release the complete track on a soundtrack album.
