Celine Dion is an enormously popular and successful artist with a long list of hits to her name, so how do you choose the most popular songs by Celine Dion? Even Dion's least successful songs have outsold many other artists, but there are still songs in her catalog that trump the others and stand out - in fact, some of them are among the best selling songs ever.
Most Popular Songs by Celine Dion
Here are the 10 most popular songs by Celine Dion:
My Heart Will Go On
This uber-successful theme song from the uber-successful film Titanic almost never came to be. Director James Cameron wanted an instrumental track for the film's theme, but the musician commissioned to do the theme song decided to write a vocal track anyway. The song was written with Dion in mind, but when she heard it, she refused to commit to the recording. Her husband convinced her to give it a try, and the result was the best-selling single of 1998 and one of the top 10 best-selling singles of all time.
Because You Loved Me
One of Dion's best known tracks, this song was penned by Diane Warren as a thank-you to her father. Dion's version of the song topped almost every music chart in the world when it was released in 1996 and is certified multi-platinum. The song was used as the theme song in the movie Up Close and Personal.
I Love You, Goodbye
This sad track of lost love was also written by Diane Warren and was one of Dion's first singles. It was a success at the time, but its popularity has only grown over the years as Dion established herself within the music industry.
Dion's version of this traditional Christmas song is a staple of her Vegas show and a favorite track from her holiday album.
I Love You
Another love song from Dion's wildly successful Falling Into You album, this song wasn't released as a single but since has become a live favorite for fans.
A New Day Has Come
This song was released in 2002 and was the first single from the album of the same name. Not quite as successful in terms of sales as some of Dion's work - it eventually earned Gold certification - it has nevertheless become another live favorite and another staple of Dion's Vegas show.
If There Was Any Other Way
This song comes from Dion's debut album, Unison, and was released as a single in Canada in 1990 and the US a year later in 1991. It was a modest success at the time - the song went to number 24 on the Canadian charts and 34 on the US charts - but propelled by several dance remixes, the song built in popularity over the years. Despite the grassroots popularity, the single failed to achieve any kind of certification.
Another Christmas song from Dion's holiday album, this traditional Spanish language song showcases Dion's multi-lingual vocal talents.
All By Myself
The only cover song to make its way into the list of popular Dion songs, her version of Eric Carmen's 1975 hit has challenged the original in terms of sales and popularity.
Beauty and The Beast
Yet another foray into movie theme songs for Dion, her take on the song is played during the credits of the movie only - the version of the song heard within the film was actually recorded by Angela Lansbury. Lansbury and Dion performed the song together at the 1993 Academy Awards. Disney released Dion's version as a single, and it went platinum in the Japan and Gold in the US.
