"Encore un soir" and "Call the Man" are both lovely songs, but "Then You Look at Me" just has this epic melody that draws me to it.

Only two posters voted for the song TYLAM but both posters put the song on top of their list, that's why the song earned 20 points. :)

Anyway, I'm not feeling well today so please give me time to recover. Hopefully, I'd be able to reveal the other songs who made it to the top 20 tomorrow.

With This Tear is one of her best songs.
I Surrender is growing on me. It's a cute song but kinda overrated among her fans.

With This Tear is one of my favorite songs on the Celine Dion album but I Love You Goodbye is my favorite on the said album.

How I wish I Surrender was released as a single. I'm actually still happy that the song manages to become a popular song worldwide eventhough it was not released as a single. A powerful ballad with powerful lyrics and a great song for singing competitions.

Anyway, I forgot my USB so I couldn't reveal the next songs in the top 20 Sorry

The collaboration started with when Barbra decided not to perform for the Oscars in 1997. Natalie Cole has been scheduled to sing the song but pull out. Then two days before the Oscar night, Dion was asked if she could do it. Dion was nervous but accepted it and performed the song. A few days after, Barbra sent a letter to Celine appreciating her of how beautiful Celine sang her song and wished they could have a duet together. So Rene Angelil called David Foster to write a song for them and that's how we got "Tell Him"

"Beauty and the Beast" is okay, but not one of her stronger songs. "I Surrender" is one of her best vocal performances. I love the song too!

"Loved Me Back to Life" isn't flawless, but it was so nice to hear her again after some time away. "All by Myself" is one of Céline's signature songs, and no one sings it better (although half a million have tried).

"Tell Him" is underwhelming when you consider the combined immensity of Barbra and Céline.

"I'm Alive" is a nice change in tempo for Céline. It's aged well. "I Drove All Night" is good, but forgettable among Céline's bigger classics.

Thanks you for commenting here. I thought nobody is going to pay attention to the voting poll I've made. Thanks a lot. :)

As for BATB, you're right. It felt like Celine's mic has been set to minimum because I really couldn't hear her well and when Peabro started singing, his mic is in full volume.

Celine's ABM version is powerful but I would prefer to sing similar to Charice Pempengco's ABM version because of what she did on the last part . Celine's voice is of course more beautiful, more powerful and has more feelings and that's the problem. My voice is not beautiful enough to just sing All By Myself as simple as how Celine sung it. I would have to create more melismas and do Charice's version to impress my audience.

As for Tell Him, the song should have charted better if only MHWGO song and the Titanic movie didn't come sooner. Though I like Miracles song more (because Tell Him are for girls hehehe ) by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston but Tell Him had a better and cleaner duet arrangement.

Loving I'm Alive too and loved her long dress in the music video. I'm not a fan of I Drove All Night.

Three solid songs there!

"The Power of Love" has such a classic chorus! I love it. "Because You Loved Me" is beautifully written, and "Think Twice" is beautifully sung. All three are deservedly high.

I'm not a fan of The Power of Love but it's one of the most viewed Celine Dion music videos. When it was released, do you always hear this song being sung on singing contests?

I wasn't a fan of BYLM too until I knew it was Celine's and Think Twice is the song that I am least interested among Celine's hit songs.

So it's between the following songs:
'Pour que tu m'aimes encore', 'My Heart Will Go On', 'It's All Coming Back To Me Now', 'A New Day Has Come' and 'That's The Way It Is'.
