"My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion
20 years ago 'Titanic' began its triumphant advance at the cinemas. For director James Cameron and the film studio 20th Century Fox, it was a risky undertaking, because the originally estimated US $ 150 million production costs and the time limits were far exceeded. To complete the film at all, a second major production company was brought aboard - Paramount Pictures. But the gigantic effort should pay off, 'Titanic' became the most suceessful film in history (till that date), showered with prizes, including 11 Oscar Awards. Embedded in the technically complex and brilliant story of the sinking of the RMS Titanic 1912 in the North Atlantic Ocean is the love story of Jack and Rose. Since the film plays on two time levels, the transience of human being forms to a central issue here, reinforced by the ship disaster. The many impressions and emotions bundle up in the phenomenal music of James Horner. He used largely orchestral elements and merged them with Celtic folklore, for which one originally wanted to commit Enya. Also this soundtrack broke records, with 27 million copies sold, it's the best-selling classic album of all time. And the only real song on this album, 'My Heart Will Go On', performed by Celine Dion, pulled along. Also released in January 1998, it became Celine's biggest hit, 15 weeks at number one on the Global Chart and the biggest smash in that year worldwide, decorated with three Grammy Awards.
