“Because You Loved Me”: Recorded for the movie “Up Close & Personal” starring Robert Redford and Michelle Pfeiffer, Celine Dion included the song on her 1996 Grammy award-winning album “Falling Into You.” The love song chronicles the working relationship between Warren Justice and Tally Atwater as it evolves into friendship, a romance and eventually marriage. Warren takes one more field assignment and tragically dies. The best verse in the song is, "You were my strength when I was weak. You were my voice when I couldn't speak. You were my eyes when I couldn't see. You saw the best there was in me. Lifted me up when I couldn't reach. You gave me faith 'cuz you believed. I'm everything I am because you loved me."
“When I Fall In Love”: A duet recorded with Clive Griffith and included on the soundtrack of the 1993 movie “Sleepless In Seattle,” Dion included this song on her “Colour Of My Love” CD which was released the same year. The best verse of the song is, “"And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too (I feel that way too) is when I fall in love with you (I fall in love with you). When I fall in love, it will be forever or I'll never fall in love (or I'll never ever fall in love. In a restless world like this, love has ended before it's begun. And too moonlight kisses seem to cool in the warmth of the sun."
“The Power of Love”: Produced by David Foster, “The Power Of Love” was the first single released from the 1983 album “The Colour of My Love” and became Celine’s first number one hit in the United States. It held the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for four consecutive weeks in February 1994. The best verse of the song is the haunting opening, "The whispers in the morning of lovers sleeping tight are rolling by like thunder now. As I look in your eyes, I hold on to your body and feel each move you make. Your voice is warm and tender, a love that I could not forsake."
“Beauty And The Beast”: Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson performed this duet at the end of the full-length animated feature “Beauty And The Beast.” Dion included it on her self-titled 1992 album. The song won both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for Best Original Song. “Beauty And The Beast” was Celine Dion’s peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary chart. The best verse of the song is, "Tale as old as time. Tune as old as song. Bittersweet and strange, finding you can change, learning you were wrong. Certain as the sun rising in the east. Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, beauty and the beast."
“My Heart Will Go On”: The love theme from the Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning 1997 movie “Titanic,” Celine Dion released the son on her “Let’s Talk About Love” album which was released the same year. Dion made this song the centerpiece of her Las Vegas show. There is a haunting sound of a pennywhistle at the beginning of the song, but the best verse of the movie is, "You're here, there's nothing I fear, and I know that my heart will go on. We'll stay forever this way. You are safe in my heart and my heart will go on and on."
