I had to bring this thread back... I hope the thread title is correct. I think it is. I also hope the few that posted here have re-joined. Otherwise it's just gonna be me waffling incoherently about Celine Dion. Much like I do when drunk.

I'll open this thread with the news that Celine released her new English language song RECOVERING on iTunes last week. So that's two tracks from the new English album already released. I hope they don't keep doing this though I think I'd rather get the album all as one surprise than keep having them release random songs from it without videos or proper single release.

The song itself is a nice simple song about love and grief. I say simple as it's no frills really, almost stripped back with that old style piano. No big orchestra, no Celine-ish vocal acrobatics. It's different and I cant wait to hear this whole album. Hopefully it isn't pushed back yet again.

I got my physical copy of Encore Un Soir too and was surprised at the packaging. It comes in a little navy blue box with Celine's name on it. The CD in jewel case inside, a little note book and an album booklet. And the little bag with the ribbons/bracelet thing in it. Very fancy indeed.

Here is Celine performing RECOVERING flawlessly on ELLEN.

I love Celine's new song "Recovering". What's her other new song from the English speaking album?
I must have missed it.

I love Celine Dion. I went to her concert in Stockholm back in 2008. Totally memorable. She is even better live than on record.

Well they officially released a studio version of THE SHOW MUST GO ON with a featured violinist. Celine performed it at the billboard music awards. The studio version isn't exactly like this though.

Please remind me to ask you "how do you feel about the thread title now" in 2026 or something.

The funny thing is, since I didn't know if you would re-register, that I had planned to steal this title for an Amanda Lear thread.
Hahahaha..... Surely everyone loves Amanda Lear?

This week I was lucky enough to come across a seller on ebay selling 25 Celine Dion CD singles. There are both versions of the CD single for each release. CD 1 and CD 2, and it's a pretty extensive collection covering all of her UK single releases from Think Twice up until I Drove All Night. The cases and CD's are in pristine condition and have been kept amazingly considering the age of some them. No smoke smell or staining, the jewel cases nice and clean and clear. And the best thing about it all is that they were originally listed as going for £25 with free shipping but the next day when I decided to just give in and buy them the price had lowered to just £20 with the free shipping! I think that's a pretty great deal.

Of course I have all of the songs on the various albums and compilation albums I own already but it is so nice to actually own the singles being a fan. I would never have been able to buy those early singles back in the day because I was too young anyway.
I've noticed some of the CD's have a ton of remixes some of which I have never heard, but most feature album tracks as the b-sides. And there are a whole lot of live versions of Celine hits like My Heart Will Go On, Because You Loved Me, and The Power of Love among others. I will take some pics later today and post them here.

Had a nightmare trying to get pics from my phone on here today.. I had to settle for grabbing the original ebay pic. There are a few missing singles, like The Reason and The Power of Love, but I will fill in the gaps.

If you haven't seen this rare concert check it out. A private show she did in 1997 for the Sultan of Brunei. It was part of the Falling Into You Tour and it's at the peak of her vocal ability. She does the entire set totally live and she is flawless. Her voice is just amazing. Don't mind the dodgy video inserts... lol

I saw her live in Stockholm in 2008. It was incredible. :)

Anyway I stumbled across this little gem on youtube and figured this was the perfect thread to post it:
