Suddenly I am sixteen again...
I've talked about it before, but it bears repeating since it still hasn't changed - this song (and the movie) have such a treasured spot in my heart. It takes me back to when I was sixteen, an angsty teenager with the hugest crush on Leonardo DiCaprio, fascinated by the story of Titanic and the love story of the movie.
And god, Celine is just freaking amazing. Even now twenty years later, she has such power in her voice - such emotion. She's a true diva and her performance here is incredible and moving. I imagine it brings back memories of her husband - she appeared emotional during the performance, and I have to assume that she found herself thinking of him.
I really do need to rewatch the movie sometime soon. I haven't in awhile, in part because I can practically rewatch it in my head, but it's not quite the same. Besides, Leo and Kate are both eye-candy in this movie. :D
