Leona Lewis' I See You Vs. Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On: Battle of the James Cameron Love Themes

From the moment it was first announced that Leona Lewis would be undertaking the all-important duties of singing the exit music to James Cameron's first film since Titanic, comparisons between her Avatar love theme and Celine Dion's seminal "My Heart Will Go On" were inevitable. Now that we've finally heard the song, entitled "I See You," we can finally perform an educated analysis.



"I See You"

"Walking through a dream

I see you

A light and darkness breathing hope of new life

Now I live through you and you through me


I pray through my heart

That this dream

Never ends"

"My Heart Will Go On"

"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"

CONCLUSIONS: Share a preoccupation with vision during electrophysiological states of sleep; fantasies of immortality and fear of death; abandonment issues.

    I can't understand why they didn't go with this:
    Yo listen up here's a story
    About a little guy that lives in a blue world
    And all day and all night and everything he sees
    Is just blue like him inside and outside
    Blue his house with a blue little window
    And a blue corvette
    And everything is blue for him and hisself
    And everybody around
    Cos he ain't got nobody to listen to
    I'm blue da ba dee da ba die...
    I have a blue house with a blue window.
    Blue is the colour of all that I wear.
    Blue are the streets and all the trees are too.
    I have a girlfriend and she is so blue.
    Blue are the people here that walk around,
    Blue like my corvette, it's standing outside.
    Blue are the words I say and what I think.
    Blue are the feelings that live inside me.
    I'm blue da ba dee da ba die...

    So long as it plays at all the proms I attend next spring, I'm a happy man.

    Umm, she already has a "signature ballad." The problem with your debut single being "Bleeding Love" is that your entire career is downhill from there. It is overplayed, to be sure, but that song is as classic as a modern pop ballad can be.
    Good luck to Ms. Lewis, whose career is basically over.

    no contest. My Heart Will Go On is epic.
    no matter how many times you listen to it, this new song does not have a catchy tune. you can't even hum it.

    Celine Dion song is a masterpiece , she is the best singer I think

  • Andre says:

    Every time I listen to it I think its going to be the Titanic them tune and then it doesn't hit those high notes and simply goes on. Because of its similarity I think it just causes the wrong effect. Its not a bad song, its just poorly placed.
    For me this theme tune is actually a bad choice for the ending credits, simply because it doesn't meld with the other scores in the film. It feels like James Cameron wanted a ending credit that had the strength of the Titanic's, but instead just didn't think of the context of the song style.
    For me, its like taking Star Wars and and then throwing in the Titanic title track at the end.

    The American government is opting for the wrong choice by redacting the officer's book. This will just damage Americans' trust in the Department of Defense and I am sure that the original copy of the book will get leaked anyways.
