This Version Of The 'Titanic' Theme Song Will Make You Want To B*tch Slap Celine Dion

By Joanna Robinson | Videos | October 16, 2013 | Comments ()


I don’t really care that this video is old. This 10-year-old (6-year-old? 8-year-old? Make up your mind, internet) rocks the face off of “My Heart Will Go On” on his guitar. And you know what? You know what, America? This song is gorgeous. Titanic is overblown, Celine Dion is a clownshoe, but this score is absolutely beautiful. So forget ol’ Celine and her mangled vowels and sink into this child’s amazing skills. Oh, kid, if this were 1997, you would be hip deep in middle school girls.

    The 'Titanic' Theme Song Will Make You Want To B*tch Slap Celine Dion

    That is all you need to say.

    3rd grade is the year of the "RECORDER" as every parent knows ( God help us) and my daughter's music teacher told the students that anybody who wanted to practice and learn "My Heart Will Go On" would be able to play it at the end of the year concert along with the usual Hot Cross Buns and the other Recorder standards. I remember her practicing but really didn't think it would amount to much and I didn't push it. On the day of the concert, when the 20 or so kids out of 100 played that song....well tears came to my sounded so melancholy and beautiful ( I know, on a recorder, right?). I had her play it solo for me afterwards and damn but she did a good job. Whenever I hear that song, I don't think of Leo going down with the ship, Billy Zane smarming his way through life or Celine Dion thumping her chest, but of my 9 year old ( now 22) practicing and perfecting a lovely song on an instrument. I will always love that song.

    IT'S ONE NOTE FOR HALF THE SONG. Of course 3rd graders can play it.

    (but oh, flutophone, how I miss thee.)

  • kirbyjay

    and that is why the music teacher suggested it.

    Just remember to slap the real one, not one of those damn clones that are EVERYWHERE. Perched on the recycle bins, hiding in the bus shelters, screeching "Re-NEE! Re-NEE!" all the damn time. The degraded genes are really starting to show: one was yelling this very song on the street just last night but it kept coming out "My haar wih go aawww." {shudder}

    A group of them almost cornered me this morning while on my way to the gym. Luckily I drop-rolled across the tracks just as a train passed - by the time it'd passed I'd booted it out of there. Too close, guys. Too close.

    I love some classical guitar, but I still don't love the song. That is a whole lotta one-note. And the lyrics are terrible.

  • Bedewcrock

    Apparently there is a theory out there that this 10 year old playing like this is not real. "His right thumb doesn't hit the bass notes when there is a bass sound."

  • emmalita

    A well played acoustic guitar is a thing of beauty.

  • Kids got some freaky big hands.

  • ZizoAH

    I just hate Celine Dion, I don't know why, I just do.

  • Keh_Squared

    Here in Canada, I assure you that no justification is needed. There's a communal understanding regarding that sentiment.

  • emmalita

    If you allow yourself to think about her for 5 minutes you will come up with dozens of reasons, but why do that to your brain. Your brain deserves better.

  • ZizoAH

    Just so you know, I was drinking coke when I read this, and it all got out from my nose.

  • Jeff L. Crowder

    Wow, give him a hat and a street corner and this kid could rake in the coin!!!

  • prince_of_montagu

    You take that back, eh?

    Thank you.

    "Celine Dion is a clownshoe"

    *Look at the legions of Canadians carrying pitchforks and boiling Maple syrup......*

    Yup this is going to end badly

  • JoannaRobinson

    Yup this is going to end badly politely.

    Fixed that for vous.

  • Jiffylush

    You can expect a sternly worded letter.

    Samantha Bee anyone?

  • We're all friends around here, so technically, that should have been "for/pour toi".

    Also, kid has mutant skills. Combine him and Josh Weathers doing that Whitney cover from a few weeks back and you have all the women (and some of the men) from about 9-80 requiring Mrs Julien's fainting couch.
