Ne partez pas sans moi - Celine Dion

A record collection which includes all the winners of the Eurovision Song Contest (well, I do try) should also contain the 1988 winner, Celine Dion. What a great injustice. Dion has to be the singer with the ugliest voice in the business. Her screaming and wailing cuts through the bone and shatters your eardrums. What's more, during the 1988 contest she appearde in a dress which made her look like an ostrich.

It didn't matter. The hearing-impaired judges award her the prize, just one point ahead of that year's real winner, Scott Fitzgerald with 'Go'. I bought that single in 1988. This one, I could only buy now - and only because I have to have all the winners. One bonus: on this single there is an instrumental version, in which a piano takes the place of Dion's horrible vocals. A version which I prefer, of course.

My collection: 7" single no. 3543
Found: Empire Records, Den Haag, January 9, 2009
Cost: 2 euro
