Céline Dion: The Ultimate, Essential Singles Rate (WINNER REVEALED!!)

rsz_1celinerateheader1_zps2416baba.jpg


As the youngest of 14 children in a working-class family in Quebec, Celine Dion should have been lucky just to get her hands on the leftover bread and cheese, much less gain any sort of attention for being talented. Her adolescence was less than thrilling, for she was not blessed with the gift of looks.

Luckily for queers, moms and French people all over the globe – she was however blessed with one of the greatest singing voices in human memory.

The best selling female artist worldwide, Celine conquered the charts in the 1990’s, competing with the likes of Whitney and Mariah, successfully trouncing their efforts with nothing but her belt and misguided English in interviews.

She went on to single-handedly save Las Vegas, Nevada and makes more money than God herself. She had one of the most ridiculous houses on the face of the Earth, waterpark included.

Let us look back at her incredible career – that has given us some of the most laughable singles from the 90's, the biggest guilty pleasures in our music libraries and some of the most iconic singing of our generation.

73. Glorious. Singles.

Same rules apply – rate each track 0-10 (half points are included). Each track is linked on Youtube, I would highly suggest giving those unfamiliar a pass through, and at least listening to My Heart Will Go On a few dozen times, because….of course. As you can see, I only included English singles, sidelining the French singles. I did include Calling You, as it is an English song. I also included Aun Existe Amor and Pour que tu m'aimes encore, as they were included on English albums and were also singles.

Commentary will be GOLD during this rate – so make it honest and snarky.

Scores will be due on January 1 to my PM box - so you will have over a month to complete this glorious rate.

Let the power ballad belting commence.

I'm so excited for this, "Taking Chances" for the top 10! I hope there will be a part 2 sometime next year with the French singles.

There will also be many gifs uncoverable of arguably the most gif-able woman in pop music.

I'm ready.

It's All Coming Back To Me Now has one of the greatest music videos ever. That's The Way It Is is Max Martin perfection. My Heart Will Go On is just that jam. Hopefully one of those will win.

Mariah Carey?!

I'm limiting my 10s. It's All Coming Back has got to be top three, at the very least. Got to be, got to be.
 
Re: Céline Dion: The Ultimate, Essential Singles Rate - VOTING BEGINS NOV. 25

It's All Coming Back To Me Now surely has to win.

I literally can't get over the fact that Celine has 73 singles (not even including the French language ones). That's more singles than Madonna and Kylie - how is that even possible?!
 
Re: Céline Dion: The Ultimate, Essential Singles Rate - VOTING BEGINS NOV. 25

I am hère to stan for Pour Que Tu M'aimes Encore.
 
Re: Céline Dion: The Ultimate, Essential Singles Rate - VOTING BEGINS NOV. 25

Still one of my favorite videos on the internet.
 
Re: Céline Dion: The Ultimate, Essential Singles Rate - VOTING BEGINS NOV. 25

I never really knew how solid her back catalogue from the early 90's was. The Last to Know and Nothing Broken but My Heart. I LIVE FOR THOSE UNBELIEVABLE VOCALS.
 
Re: Céline Dion: The Ultimate, Essential Singles Rate - VOTING BEGINS NOV. 25

Excuse me, but this.

"It made me cry. Not because I was sad, because it touched me!"

I'm Alive is one of the greatest pop songs of the '00s/ever, isn't it? Also, I love the thumbnail for the New Day Has Come Video, which makes her look like a devastated Amy Brenneman:

"It made me cry. Not because I was sad, because it touched me!"

"They went like...maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, MMMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM"

God she's amazing. I'm so doing this rate.
 
Re: Céline Dion: The Ultimate, Essential Singles Rate - VOTING BEGINS NOV. 25

"Let them touch those things for ONCE"!

I already have a the "TAKE A KAYAK" GIF planned and ready for execution.

Even though she does sound like a lunatic at points in the Katrina vid, good sis had her heart in the right place. Continue to Slay a bit for charity Ms. Dion.

I forgot she sang "The Prayer" at the end of that clip, lord have mercy.

There are so many singles I have never heard, and I thought I was a fan! I will do my best to listen to them all.
