    Eyes On Me is a Céline classic and no mistake! One of her best 00s tracks.

    I love that other people noticed the aaaaaaargh as well! :D That entire song is so oversung and it features no doubt the worst Dion vocals ever recorded. I struggle to finish it.

    I always feel that I should give her more credit than I actually do. Every one of her 305 greatest hits collections is completely worth the money.

    I love that look over Dermot's shoulder at the end of that clip :D I know it's probably her 'reacting' to the voting lines closing, but she just looks PISSED

    Lea Michele's version is a 10/10 for me.

    One of my FAVOURITE Glee songs, back when they actually did more than just cheap karaoke knock-offs. Not transformed THAT much, but I think it's a fitting realisation of it as a current(ish) sounding pop song.

    God Taking Chances is an incredible song. The way those moody verses give way to that sunny but restrained chorus which then unfurls into that BIG DRAMATIC MIDDLE 8... before the FULL VOX are UNLEASHED in the final chorus :disco: ...before the downbeat guitar makes a cruel return to finish it all on a sad note :( weaves have FLOWN chez casa Jarkette many a time to this multi-textured, highly underappreciated anthem.

    Boring.

    "Eyes On Me", on the other hand is SENSATIONAL.

    I wish I could like my own posts because the one 3 posts up is a truth so essential they should teach it in schools!

    It's got it all: the desolation, desperation and that note that's an outer body experience. It's structured to poignantly, even when I can't make out a word she's saying when singing out the side of her mouth at the middle 8. It's a bit raw for me at the moment, but it's absolutely full of hope, as if Celine would ever leave anyone lying out on the floor too long.

    Still love Celine's reaction to Dermot interrupting her all this time. :D

    ICONIC
