I am not the only one who thinks that this is a disaster. No, Total Guitar magazine has released a list of the worst cover songs of all time. Clearly, Celine made the top of the list. Number One! Worst EVER. And there's really no disagreeing with that assessment. Let me set the stage for you:
It's in Las Vegas. It's a duet with Anastacia (no, I'm not quite sure who she is either). Celine parades her 84-pound frame across stage atop 4-inch stiletto heels (which I usually have NO problem with) and has scarf like appendages hanging from the arms of her shirt (which I usually ALWAYS have a problem with). Occasionally, the Anastacia chick shouts/sings at/with her. She also says, "Come on!" a lot. It's pretty bad. But don't take my word for it. See/listen/cringe for yourself.
I had to watch this again to make sure it was as bad as I remember it. And I'm glad I did because it wasn't as bad. No, it was worse. I had forgotten about the one-legged hop across the stage a la Angus Young. But wait! I might have to rescind what I said just a minute ago. There actually might BE some disagreement with the assessment that it's the worst cover of all time. That's because, as I was searching YouTube for the above atrocity, I ran across what is possibly a greater atrocity. Indeed. It's...it's the same song. But....it's.....well.....it's Shania Twain singing it this time. It's not good. I don't know what it is (other than kind of confusing), but it's definitely not good.
