Going back to the subject of “My Heart Will Go On”: what could possibly be worse than Celine Dion’s version? No, it’s not a trick question. The correct answer is a panpipes, backing tape, and CD-Rs-with-colour-photocopy-insert-for-sale busker’s version. Woo hoo. I just knew you would want me to record a video and put in on YouTube; so that’s what I did. (The background noise is the generator powering Señor Panpipes’ equipment.)

While we’re on the subject: Celine Dion’s heart will go on what? Strike? Holiday? “American Idol”? Or, (a joke for “Father Ted” fans only), go on go on go on go on go on go on go on go on go on go on go on go on go on go on? It makes no sense. And even if you twist your mind and assume it means her heart will continue to love the person in question, it’s just bad syntax, right? That’s why you keep on coming back to Flip Flop Flying, isn’t it? For the topical chatter.

  1. That is just way too much of a coincidence.

    Oh, it’s painful…the performance is so sincere…I feel bad laughing. But I can’t help myself.

  2. What the heck is the guy in front doing? Laying tiles?

    You bought the CD, right?

  3. Seriously, Mr. R. You’ve GOT to hear what Big Daddy did to this tune. Brilliant! You’ll appreciate it. Check my response to your drunken post, or let me know and I’ll send you the album. Us ‘creatives’ gotta stick together :)

  4. The really funny thing about Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’ is this: If you listen carefully to one of the choruses (I know this requires great effort) she actually sings:

    “My heart will go on Dand on.”

    That’s ‘Dand on’.

    I kid you not. It’s there. On the record.

    No-one in the studio, no-one on her management team had the balls to say “Oi, Celine love? Can we just go again on that chorus?”

    Apparently she’s just THAT scary. Imagine that unnaturally long face glaring at you from behind a pop-shield.

    Eew.
