falling into you.

We were a tad behind the technology times at 369 Ridgeview Lane back in the 90s. I was in 7th grade before I got a CD player and I think that was the first and only CD player in the house for quit some time. Upon receiving the CD player (which was a HUGE boombox) I got two CDs. One was Television's Greatest Hits, Vol. 1: From the 50's and 60's and the other was Celine Dion's Falling Into You.

I played Falling Into You on repeat for hours, upon hours, upon hours. When I die, I want that CD buried with me. By far my favorite song was It's All Coming Back to Me Now, which is the ultimate road-trip-sing-a-long song of all-time ever.

Last night when Celine sang It's All Coming Back to Me Now last night I was the happiest person on the planet. I was immediately swept back to middle school and to the bowling alley in 10th grade where I played the song on repeat four times (it's 7 minutes and 28 seconds long) on the juke box for the youth group.

Here is Celine singing a piece of It's All Coming Back to Me Now.

She is so fantastically ridiculous. She really does the hand gestures, and pronounces "s" as "sh" on every word.

This must have felt like a full-circle moment for you. :) Long live Celine!
