It's All Coming Back To Me Now - Celine Dion (1996)
Ever hear of Pandora's Box....the band? I hadn't either until researching today's post. Turns out they were an all-girl group put together by Jim Steinman to record his Wagnerian Epics. They were the first to record this track. The video, by Ken Russell, makes it all worth it that I found this out. However, the definitive version belongs to that lung-shredding Canuck we love and hate equally. It is her finest moment, plain and simple. In a career full of surprising moments of brilliance, this stands above them all, towering in its grandeur. It is the ultimate guilty pleasure, capable of making a room full of hipsters scream along to its operatic glory. Don't doubt me. I've seen it. You can too. Just put it on at your next party. PROG POP PERFECTION (Inspired by Wuthering Heights, no less!)!
It's not the full song, but the video's pretty great!
And so's the live version, with choreography by Mia Michaels.
And we can't leave out Meat's own version... I mean, he had to record it, didn't he?
