"All By Myself" as written by Eric Carmen and Sergei Rachmaninoff....
When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makin' love was just for fun
Those days are gone

Livin' alone
I think of all the friends I've known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't want to be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't want to live, all by myself anymore

Hard to be sure
Some times I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

    General CommentThis song is about a person who all there life was living it up, obviously just having fun. Who probably abandoned the REAL friends that they had to hang with the in crowd and now that they are alone... NO one is there. The party days are over, and their real friends are gone. So now they are alone.. all alone. And now realizes that they have made a bad choice...

    General CommentI think this is probably the best cover ever!!!

    Celine Dion just gives the song much more power and her voice is incredible. The last 1/3rd section is magnificent and is just so powerful :-)

    General CommentHers is the best version of this song that I've ever heard. She clearly conveys the true emotion in it, eloquently expressing the sorrow of someone who is all alone. There is no one she can count on. None of her friends answer her calls. That is probably the saddest line in the entire song. But she sings it so beautifully! If I had her voice, her bravada, I would be the happiest woman in the world!

    General CommentI am a HUGE Celine Dion fan, and I've read about the day she recorded this song. Her husband purposely got into a little argument with her that morning, knowing she would sulk about it and be able to whip out that emotion. Not to mention the fact that in this song, she reaches an F note, which is almost out of her voice range. Celine rocks it out, and this song still gives me chills!
