Falling into you

"I was not satisfied with the first recording we made with the song Falling into you, Celine admits. This is a song with many nuances, with half-tones. I found the arrangements were too violent, my voice didn't flow enough. Everybody, however, the technicians, the authors, even David and Rene, seemed satisfied. I said nothing. But Rene felt that I wasn't happy... He asked me what was wrong. I explained it to him. He seemed surprised. Then I hummed him Falling into you describing after every time the arrangements which I was imagining. He quickly agreed with me. He seemed amazed, as if he just discovered something... I called the director and the engineer to explain how I was feeling my song, what kind of changes. They all agreed and were happy, they said it to me... This song marked a step of my emancipation as an artist... I was becoming a mature, grown-up, autonomous artist... So we came back in studio and we recorded Falling into you again. It never became a big song for the stage; it is too sweet, too subtle to move a crowd. But it is, in my opinion, one of the thrillest song on the album Falling Into You. And I love the lyrics." Marie Claire D'Ubaldo originally recorded it.

Make you happy

(Andy Marvel) No more sadness I wanna be the one to make you happy I wanna be the one to give you hope But in these days of conscious living We've got to take it slow You can't be sure of who you've met You just don't know what you might get Cause in these […]

Seduces me

(Dan Hill / John Sheard) Everything you are Everything you'll be Touches the current of love So deep in me Every sigh in the night Every tear that you cry Seduces me All that I am All that I'll be Means nothing at all If you can't be with me Your most innocent kiss Or […]

All by myself

For the recording of the album Falling Into You, David Foster asked to Celine to do a remake of All by myself. "David informed me that he had changed the orchestrations of the last part of the song, Celine tells. I had to sing a little higher, until a F# which almost reached the limit of my voice. The worst was that he wanted me to hold this note during several times... I knew that I couldn't do it more than two recordings without risking to break my voice. The day of the recording, Rene and I quarrelled, for a mere nothing... He decided not to acompany me to the studio. I left all by myself, to the Record Plant (in Los Angeles), where I found a rather cold, condescending, almost contemptuous David Foster... While the technicians were finishing to put the orchestra tracks, I was bothering myself. I think that David was delaying everything on purpose... At one point, innocently, he told me: 'If you don't manage... I could ask it to Whitney.'. Whitney Houston was recording on this day in the nearby studio... I did not say a word... I sang All by myself with all my strength, with all my soul. When I came to the time to climb towards the F#, I put my voice at maximum, until it was hurting, and I held the note a very long time, without weakening. When I finished, the musicians on the other side of the glass were stand up to applause. I left without greeting David Foster...I was thinking to Rene. I was looking for the reason of our fight. And suddenly, I understood...He put one more time the difficulty harder to give me new challenges, to force me to surpass myself." Now, Celine speaks about the impact of this song when she sings it on stage: "Before, people did not expect this note, she says, and when I was doing it, they were surprised, amazed or not, but they did not expect this note... And now they expect this note, and there is a silence which moves me, and which paralyses me, it's incredible! And then, I say to myself, 'well, I can't leave them now', so, there is a hand inside me, this performer who loves singing, who's saying to me 'go girl, do your note, make them happy, do it right!'." Eric Carmen originally recorded it.

Dreamin' of you

(Aldo Nova / Peter Barbeau) Lyin' in my bed Thoughts in my head Visions of you But I can't get through the night So pick up the phone I know you're home You're playin' with my heart And you know that it just ain't right It's just a game of love, love, love And even […]

(You make me feel like a) Natural woman

To love you more

"A few years ago, when I was touring in Japan, Celine tells, I met an incredible young violonist: his name is Taro Hakase, and we have recorded this next song together." To love you more was the theme song for a popular Japanese drama series.

The power of the dream

The Centennial Olympic Games began on July 19, 1996 in Atlanta Georgia and Celine Dion helped open the 1996 Summer Olympics by performing a song written exclusively for the Games. The Power Of The Dream was written by David Foster, Linda Thompson and Kenny "BabyFace" Edmonds. Celine was attracted to the project because of the Games' international importance and the example Olympic athletes represent. "It is an honour to sing for the world's athletes", she said. "The sacrifices they made, their dedication and commitment to a single purpose and the hard work they have gone through makes every one of them a hero for having earned the priviledge of being on that field for the Opening Ceremony". The Opening Ceremonies began at 8:00pm EDT and was broadcast to an expected worldwide television audience of more than 3.5 billion people.
