Boy are you in for a surprise.

I suppose, for the most part, and to keep the server from crashing, it might be better to say all of them and just list the exceptions.

We are a bit...... intense .... when it comes to Céline!

PS: If you never bought her christmas CD do that. Most christmas songs don't have alot of instrumentals, so you can hear just about the best vocals.... Certainly Jenna thought so too!

There are several DVDs that are awesome too.

1) Divas Live [the very first one, without a year on the title. it's in nyc and has some of the best duets of any of the later ones. she is in more, but that one she was in alot and the best imho].

2) Au Coeur de Stadt. Most are english songs, but some of her best french ones. The concert is great but the special features includes making of Let's Take About Love cd and it's freakin amazing songs, sound and real moments

3) A New Day Live in Las Vegas the dvd of the show. You'll see a number of people from this forum in it too. Great behind the scenes and the concert itself is awesome.

tons of others too... but that's a great start for those without dvds.

Someone pointed out a few years ago that she actually sings "My heart will go on dan don". Always makes me laugh.

"When I need you" since the mood of the music makes it a good song (saxophones playing in the background towards the end of it), she can sing it a little louder than other artists who have sung that song. Her voice allows her to, but stil I like the song. If I get it it wont be on itunes, my downloads erased when my computer died on me.

"Because You Loved" me caused me to become a Celine Dion fan. I love so many of her songs.

"If You Asked Me To"

"The Color Of My Love"

"It's All Coming Back To Me Now"

"All By Myself"

"The Power Of Love"

"Only One Road"

"Love Doesn't Ask Why"

"Water From The Moon"

I didn't know it was Celine that sang "Because You Loved" I really like this song.

Update: been listening to Celine today, I didn't know she sang in french, I am a fan now.

"Immortality" with the Bee Gees is a very good song. She has a great voice and the song with the Bee Gees is very emotional.

My goodness, nobody even mentioned "I Surrender." "I surrender" is a great song!

There are two versions of this song. One I like. The other, not so much.

My favorites are...gosh, so hard to choose. She's one of my favorite singers. But I remember I once said that she should make a duet with R.Kelly (one of my other favorites singers). And then they did! And yes, I love that song too. (You're My Angel)

I remember when Have You Ever Been In Love first came out, I liked it so much I printed out the lyrics and taped it to the wall above my computer. I said that that was how I wanted to feel about the person I was going to marry. And then I did.

In fact, he and I went to see Celine Dion at Caesar's Palace. (She is soooo cute!) And then after that, he started listening to Celine Dion songs. hehe

But I still haven't answered the question, huh? If I MUST choose, it would be Have You Ever Been in Love, Pour Que Tu M'aimes Encore, You're My Angel, Call The Man, and Because You Loved Me.

I'm actually a huge Celine fan, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this forum here! Even back in the 7th grade, I got so much flack because I loved her stuff.

I'm fond of her French songs (and that's how I learned what little French I know!) My favorites are 'Destin', 'Pour Que Tu m'Aimes Encore', and 'S'Il n'En Restait Qu'un'. I'm also extraordinarily fond of 'Taking Chances'.

Celine Dion is one of my all time favorite singers. I like How she's managed to make meaningful and truly good music over the years. My personal favs are Nothings Broken but My Heart (really, this is my number 1 always), Where Does My Heart Beat Now, Where is the Love, Because You Loved Me, and That's The Way It Is.

I'm not much of a fan, but she has definitely an impressive voice. *duh*
I like the cover "The power of love", though Jennifer Rush already did a good work with that, and "I'm alive".
ok, and the Titanic song gets me misty eyed

I just got her newest album, and I absolutely love "Unfinished Songs". So worth listening to. Yes, it's a sappy one, but still!
