Celine Dion "These Are The Special Times"(These Are Special Times 1998)

video
Celine's first-ever collection of holiday songs, 'These Are Special Times' is a collaboration of extraordinary talents, including duets with R. Kelly and Andrea Bocelli, plus the virtuoso production work of Celine's longtime partners David Foster and Ric Wake. 

These Are Special Times received the 1999 Japan Gold Disc Award for International Pop Album of the Year.

These Are Special Times
In these moments, moments of our lives 
All the world is ours 
And this world is so right 
You and I sharing this time together 
Sharing the same dream 
As the time goes by, we will find 
These are the special times 
Times we'll remember 
These are the precious times 
The tender times we'll hold in our hearts forever 
These are the sweetest times 
These times together 
And through it all, one thing will always be true 
The special times are the times I share with you 
With each moment, moment passing by 
We'll make memories that will last all our lives 
As you and I travel through time together 
Living this sweet dream 
And every day, we can say 
These are the special times 
Times we'll remember 
These are the precious times 
The tender times we'll hold in our hearts forever 
These are the sweetest times 
These times together 
And through it all, one thing will always be true 
The special times are the times I share with you 
These tender moments 
When heaven is so close 
These are the moments that I know 
These are the special times 
Times we'll remember 
These are the precious times 
The tender times we'll hold in our hearts forever 
These are the sweetest times 
These times together 
And through it all, one thing will always be true 
The special times are the times I share 
The special times are the times we share 
The special times are the times I share with you

Celine Dion "Listen To The Magic Man" (The Peanut Butter Solution Movie1985)

video
"Listen To The Magic Man"  is Celine Dion's first single from the movie soundtrack Opération beurre de pinottes. It was released in 1985 in Quebec, Canada.

Celine Dion recorded French and English version of this song called "Listen to the Magic Man" and did her first real music video for it (1985). "Listen to the Magic Man" is also notable for being Dion's first English-language song recorded in the studio.

The track was made officially available on a CD for the first time in September 2006. It was included on a special bonus disc bundled with Volume 1 of the Contes pour tous DVD box set .

The Peanut Butter Solution (French title: Opération beurre de pinottes) is a 1985 family film. The movie was directed by Michael Rubbo and is the 2nd in the Tales for All (Contes Pour Tous) series of children's movies created by Les Productions la Fête.

Listen To The Magic Man
Listen to the magic man
An abracadabra
Your life's in cinerama
Listen to the magic man
A bing bang
A ding dang
And oops
Your mind goes flash back
Roll on
Round & round
On & on
Up & down
You are in wonderland
Listen to the magic man
Listen to the magic man
Got a trick
That's so slick
Disappears just quick as a lick
Listen to the magic man
A bing bong
A ping pong
And you are off to Hong Kong
Roll on
Round & round
On & on
Up & down
You are in wonderland
Listen to the magic man
The wonders
The colours
The others
You're leaving them behind
Bye bye
Oh my magic man
Flish flash fly
You are making me
Roll on

/Lewis Furey / Eddy Marnay, Howard Forman/



Celine Dion in M Music & Musicians Magazine 2013

CELINE DION                        
Her latest showcases an earthy approach to recording her inimitable vocals   
After selling more than 200 million albums and enjoying 25 years of global success, five-time Grammy Award-winning Celine Dion might be inclined to take it easy. But the powerhouse singer refuses to slow down, and while she continues her Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace, she’s recorded a new album that challenges preconceptions.

On Loved Me Back to Life, the Canadian native explores a wide range of musical elements and enlists an impressive roster of contemporary hit-makers. Take for example the tunes penned by R&B artist and producer Ne-Yo—including the duet “Incredible”—or the title track, co-written by Australian singer-songwriter Sia, who’s penned tunes for Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry and Rihanna. “My son could not believe it,” Dion says. “He thought I was making it up when I said I was working with these people: ‘Mom, there’s no way!’”

Six years removed from her last English-language album, 2007’s Taking Chances, Dion is back with a renewed sense of energy and purpose. She will always reign as the queen balladeer of monster hits like “My Heart Will Go On,” “Because You Loved Me,” and “Beauty and the Beast,” but Dion is reintroducing herself with more uptempo, dance-ready material. At the same time, she’s scaled back on the vocal acrobatics, supplementing her vocal stylings with a deeper, raspier tone. “For me, I don’t look at it as a risk,” Dion says about her creative evolution. “It’s trying something new and different and fun.”

Away from the microphone, Dion, 45, enjoys the simple pleasures of home and family. She and her husband of 19 years, René Angélil, reside in Las Vegas with their three sons: René-Charles, 12, and twin 3-year-olds Eddy and Nelson. We spoke with Dion about her new approach and how her latest album has allowed her to take a walk on the wild side.

What’s different about this album?
It’s more modern, fresh and edgy—at least edgy for me. The producers put an emphasis on changing the recipe for this album. How we recorded my voice is different. The fact that you can totally denude my voice and make it raw is quite incredible. On my previous albums, there was a lot of reverb and effect on my voice with a blending of the music from the producers. This time, if there was a crack in my voice, we left it. It’s not perfect, it’s not a mistake—it’s what we wanted. It’s another kind of raw emotion, all about letting go and feeling the edge. There is perfection in the imperfection. I want to sing with passion. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Was there a theme?
I’m at the mercy of the songs because I don’t write them. So I can’t sit and tell you what I want the essence of the album to be. I have to hear a lot of songs and find the ones that are right. I feel very fortunate to have so many songs to choose from. I was given some amazing new material. After all these years, it’s great to still have these writers want you to record their songs. At first we were planning to have half of the album with covers I perform in the show and half with original songs—but there were so many great songs that we had to record them.

Who’s the architect of the new sound?
It was a team effort. All these new people who I’ve been working with are really inspiring. And I thought that I had done it all in my career. Of course, Stevie Wonder, Babyface, Ne-Yo and Sia were such a pleasure to work with.

What inspires your song selection?
I choose all of the songs on my albums. I’m the one who must sing them every night, and I’ll be singing them for the rest of my career. I have to sing with passion and convince people to reach within. I have to believe in what I’m singing.

Why did you choose to include “At Seventeen” on the new record?
“At Seventeen” was a discovery for me. Singing it allowed me to really know the song. It’s exquisite and extraordinary. [TV producer] Ken Ehrlich called me to pay tribute to Janis Ian [for 2008’s Grammy televised nominations special]. At the time I wasn’t very familiar with the song. The success of that song is remarkable.

Why has that song endured?
There aren’t a lot of songs like that now. During this time of being a teenager it gets to be awkward for all people. It was a soothing experience for me to be able to sing that song every night. These years in Las Vegas I have been singing for my own pleasure. But then I began realizing every night how the people were responding—holding hands and in tears. When we stop, reach out, and talk about these things, we truly listen to what we have all gone through. It’s like traveling through time to perform that song.

Feel the need to record new songs?
Now I can go out there with my old repertoire for the rest of my career, but there are new songs to add to my show. I’m not expecting anything. If the fans respond well to the music, then I’ll be more than proud. If not, I will still have the older songs to perform. I’m looking forward to feeling the response from the fans.

How do you care for your voice?
Some people can go out and scream and dance at the club at night, then take their guitar the next morning and sing in this sexy, soulful voice with a raw edginess. I wouldn’t be able to do that. In a way, I’m borrowing a bit from the life I never had. I’m borrowing from the characters in my songs. It’s very different. The characters might smoke and drink and have a good time—not that I want to smoke and drink—but I’m living through them.

Has less touring affected your voice?
The singing is not as tense. There was a time when I felt like I had to prove myself in the industry. I’m more relaxed now. It’s the best of myself. I have to be the best of me. There’s been a transition, and I have more maturity. I’m sounding much better. I’m grounded and going with the flow.

What keeps you motivated?
My children are the reason for everything. My singing is important to me, and I’ve had a wonderful career. I feel like I’m a child again. I have a beautiful family and a great husband, and I don’t need the career. I don’t benefit from show business anymore. But all artists love the spotlight, the attention, and love to perform. I love to express myself through music.

What’s the highlight of your career?
A lot of very important things have happened. Starting with the songs that my mother wrote for me in French when I was just 12. It’s like when you roll a little snowball and it gets bigger and bigger. Having success is just a combination of events, the momentum of things. The release of my first album was incredible. It was a big thing to do Jay Leno and Johnny Carson, and to perform in the Olympics and at the Oscars. Working with David Foster was a special moment, and then there was Beauty and the Beast and Titanic. It’s hard to pick just one moment.
–Blake Boldt

Glory Glory Alleluia
Glory Glory Alleluia
La plus belle nuit du monde

Ont levé les yeux vers le ciel
Une étoile semble dire
Suivez-moi je vous conduis
Il est né cette nuit

Chantons chantons Noël
Sur la paille d'une étable
Ils se sont agenouillés
Les pauvres comme les princes
Au pied de l'enfant nouveau-né
Et ce chant comme une source
A traversé le pays
Il est né cette nuit
Glory Glory Alleluia
Glory Glory Alleluia
Glory Glory Alleluia
Chantons chantons Noël
La plus belle nuit du monde
C'est cette nuit de Noël
Dans le coeur de tous les hommes
Un peu d'amour descend du ciel
Tant de choses nous séparent
Cette étoile nous unis
Il est né cette nuit
Glory Glory Alleluia

Chantons chantons Noël

Celine Dion "Unison" (Unison 1990)

video
Celine Dion's first ever English language recording, 'Unison,' has been argued to be the true beginning of the superstar as we know her today. Selecting material from such noted writers as Paul Bliss, Aldo Nova, Tom Keane, and David Foster, the collection is truly stunning. 

Unison
Somewhere tonite we come alive 
Two hearts ignite we're one of a kind 
Here we are undivided by anything 
Just you and I 
We've come so far no one else could ever 
Steal away what we confide 
Who wants to know? 

We stick together we're never apart 
Everybody knows who we are 
Because we are one we do it in Unison 
We come together and stronger we are 
Just when the world can tear us apart 
We go on as one we do it in Unison 

Gleam of an eye, flash of a smile 
Never too shy playin' ever so wild 
Here we are I'm relying on no one else 
But you and I we've come so far 
No one else could ever steal away what we 
Confide who wants to know? 

Rockin' as one there's no time to stop 
I know what we've got we do it in Unison 

Here we are undivided by anything 
Just you and I 
We've come so far no one else could ever 
Steal away what we confide 
Who wants to know?
