Further soundtrack commissions resulted in her penning the theme tune, “Wish I Were You”, to the 1998 feature film Armageddon. (Smyth’s husband, John McEnroe, claims in his autobiography[1] that she was inspired to write the song by his own attempt at a musical career: she was struck by his excitement at playing music, when her feelings about the music industry were far more ambivalent.)

Smyth was briefly considered by Edward Van Halen to be the replacement for David Lee Roth in the band Van Halen prior to the hiring of Sammy Hagar.
