♫ My Heart Will Go On ♫

Most of you know that I don’t watch many movies … never have.  First, I cannot sit still for a full two hours without doing something, and second, I do not hear well, and so rarely understand dialog unless it is closed-captioned, and then I am so busy reading captions that I am not seeing the movie.  So instead, I read books.  There are, however, a few notable exceptions.  Early in my teen years, came a movie, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, starring Debbie Reynolds, and in part based on the sinking of the Titanic. It was among my favourite movies, and I have been fascinated by the story of the Titanic (as well as the Lusitania) ever since.  So, in 1997 when the movie Titanic, starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio came out … I waited for the closed-captioned video and late one Saturday night, I lay in bed watching it.  The one song that has stuck with me from the movie is My Heart Will Go On.  Molly Brown made an appearance in this one too, only played by Kathy Bates of Stephen King’s Dolores Claiborne fame.

My Heart Will Go On
Celine Dion

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go till we’re gone

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we’ll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

You’re here, there’s nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on
We’ll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart and
My heart will go on and on

  1. I knowevery word of that movie by heart. I fell in love with Jack..and Leo. One of my collection now. And I LOVED The Unsinkable Molly Brown. Debbie Reynolds was so awesome. I miss her. Tammy and the Bachelor. 😊💕

  2. I always loved this song…movie too, although I thought de Caprio was miscast.
    An excellent movie…no music, is Philomena..true story..Judi Dench..highlights Catholic orphanages and a gay republican under, I believe, under Bush administration.

  3. I never saw this film, but had a friend whose ex dragged him to see the whole 3 hour or so thing more than six times. I haven’t seen anything like this since The Poseidon Adventure, and that was enough for me. That also had a famous theme song, There’s got to Be A Morning After–

    • Hah! I have never known a man who would consent to see a film 6 times just because his wife liked it! I loved the Poseidon Adventure, though it gave me nightmares for weeks after … I kept waking up thinking my room was upside down!

    • You’re not going to believe this … well, maybe knowing me you will … but I never heard of Jennifer Rush until you mentioned her. I did go listen to her version of Power of Love, and I can certainly see why you love it … it is powerful. But I remain partial to Huey Lewis and the News’ version, likely only because the first time I heard the song was when I saw Back to the Future! 😉
