If I Can Dream
The welknown and already legendary duet IF I CAN DREAM from Elvis & Celine Dion will be released official on Dion's new album which will be called the best of Celine Dion & David Foster.
Jerome... Can you add a smart commet, please? Just one, only one, plesa...
Total garbage. I've never understood why they let that wailing banshee Dion soil the perfection that is if I can Dream.
This is Elvis's finest song! This is something that Lisa Marie should have picked as her duet instead of the weak I Love you because. But it will be much better with a good singer like Celine Dion doing it instead>
I LOVE IT! This introduces Elvis to a different generation and more people will check into Elvis and help him become more relevant again.
Will K-Mart sell these?..
How ironic this title came up. Maybe we should all play Elvis's original & listen to its beautiful message.
There are way more interesting artists out there, to listen to. I would not call Celine Dion an artist, she has some rich older dude and she won the Eurovision, like how artistic is that. Cliff Richard has a massive ego and lowered himself to that level and lost twice. Abba, being the only real success story with some catchy numbers and fine looking girl singers. My horse is better looking than Celine Dion, no disrespect to those fine, majestic animals. I'm trying to decipher real artists like Captain Beefheart, after already discovering the genius of Zappa. I put Elvis at the top, but a big majority of really innovative musical artists never get played on the radio are sell millions of records. Every wanna be thinks they are a star these days with those horrible so called talent shows with talentles fools at the panel and everyone watching, what a joke. Lets have a Captain Beefheart fusion of him howling the blues and Elvis singing, 'Milkcow blues boogie', or something like that. Forget the so called stars, just illusion.
What does this say about Elvis? He's still relevant, still popular, and still pushing the boundaries of music. All that, and big name artists still want to be associated with him in any way that they can! To me, this has almost nothing to do with Celine Dion and everything to do with the force that is Elvis Presley. Thirty-five years gone and he remains the undisputed King of Rock N Roll. Amazing!
Each to their own, i respect that, but pairing Elvis singing' if i can Dream', with Celine Dion was a big disrespect to the stance Elvis took back in the turbulent year of 1968. That is such an important song in the Elvis canon, the symbolism of him appearing all in white to sing this song of redemption. Yes Redemption Song. The year where the bin collectors went on strike in Memphis and were brutalized in the streets with bully clubs, water hoses and dogs and for what, better wages to support their families and stay above the poverty level. Martin Luther King shot dead, both these events in Elvis' hometown, for a man who stayed away from topical songs, some say 'till, 'In the Ghetto', this indeed was a moment of truth, a crowning glory for the great humanitarian that he was. 1968, the world and America were in crisis and we have the Man, singing, " Out there in the dawn, there's a beckoning candle". He never sang it again, it was a statement. Never listened to Celine, so cannot say if she's good or bad, if it wins new Elvis fans, great, but so what. I doubt if he would dig what they did to this charismatic, gut wrenching, pure Elvis perfection. Gravel in the voice and fire in the belly.
Agree entirely with Steve, as it keeps the name alive as something tangible, and in peoples minds, and will perhaps encourage a few thousand or so more folk, to look deeper into the catalogue of the man.
Nothing wrong with Celine or her music. Most people think it's cool to put her down, but i saw her in Vegas and it was incredible.The house was packed! In think she has a fantastic voice and, looking at how many album she's sold in the last 10+ years, i'm not the only one who feels that way.
Who cares? its her album and she is obviusly proud of the track and can do what she wants. No one here has to purchase it and if Celine fans buy it, like it, they may wnat to discover more Elvis. its a win-win situation in my eyes.
Yuck!! There's a gal works down the chip shop swears she's Elvis' daughter. anybody know the great Kirsty MaColl track, "There's a guy works down the chip shop swears he's Elvis, but he's a liar and i'm not sure about you, ahuh, huh". Now we hear Lisa Maria works in a chip van in England, how cool is that.
Oh dear! Does this mean that I have to buy a Celine Dion CD?! Think not!! :)
