Celine Dion Is Really Going For This “Edgy” Thing

Oct 18th, 2007 // 4 Comments


The title track off Celine Dion’s feathered and blown-out Taking Chances is a midtempo, acoustic guitar-heavy ballad that was penned by Kara DioGuardi and Dave Stewart and that, like her version of Heart’s “Alone,” holds back on the fist-to-chest moments. And you have to at least muster a bit of respect for the video, which casts aside Dion’s past music-video excesses in favor of bringing together elements of Kanye West’s clip for “Stronger” and a Metroid-like twist–and placing them in Vegas, so as to effectively cross-promote her soon-to-be-closing Caesars Palace extravaganza. Look into her eyes and feel that synergy, baby.

    They play this song on every episode of “Moonlight”, the new vampire series on CBS. I can’t recommend it highly enough, it’s so awesomely, hilariously awful and cheesy. Plus, vampire Logan Echolls.

    Can’t wait till Kathy Griffin deconstructs this in her next standup routine.

  3. I Don't Get It

    Methinks Dave Stewart is recycling some lyrics… “talk to me….like lovers do. walk with me….like lovers do.” Sounds vaguely familiar.
