I was just thinking about this, cos of the JSP live single questions lately!

I think it's soooo weird that they decided to release this song from Live à Paris! I mean it was already a single, is was a nice hit in France, and yeah the music is different cos of the guitar, but why release the same song twice? It would have been much better if they Released J'irai où tu iras, or made a real single for Les derniers seront les premiers! Or of course Prière Païenne!!!  :wub:


And on the note of stupid decisions not to release songs are for instance:
did you gave enough love - why was it pulled back in the end?! :shrug:
seduces me - would have been an amazing single from FIY! Better then CTM IMO, even though that song is amazing
I drove All Night (initial UK release) - why was it pulled back and later released with OH as a double A side?!  :doh:

I need that single! I't's a pain trying to find it anywhere cos you have to search for 'one heart', as the front cover on Part 1 and Part 2 of this UK single are both titled One Heart, and they have exactly the same cover apart from the 'Dion' is red on one CD, and yellow on the other one... :confused:

Well Davey, you already know Céline's Sony team isn't characterized by their brilliant brains precisely... :rolleyes:  :D

They've made many stupid singles releases, not to mention the songs that sometimes they decided to promote live on the TV shows...

That JSP choice was incomprehensible, yes, but tell me what about GTSW and how they killed the great running that was doing ANDHC, or HYEBIL with One Heart when it was a song from ANDHC... There were some Céline songs that should had been forbidden to be picked as singles for radio.

They should have all majored in how to ruin and kill the promotion of good albums.

pahaha yeh as soon as u said about stupid releases....i thought the uk one heart/ i drove all night - such a rediculous stratagey- lovely cds but they totally burry i drove all night under one heart which im sorry should not have been allowed to live...barely as an album track let alone a single.

All singles from a new day has come (except andhc) were mistakes....massive ones...and loads were half hearted....and the have u ever been i love off one heart....uhh...make up yr mind please. haha i have too many issues with the andhc era.

I thought treat her like a lady was an unexpected release at the time...and a weird one coz it was not promo'd at all - celine was in the middle of a tour (bit like when call the man was released ....like the last gasp of an album because a tour needs promoting a bit) but by treat her like a lady's release in 1999....i was completely (but pleasently coz i love that single) surprised coz we'd had lets talk about love since 1997...and then after immortality we had I'm your angel from the Xmas album and i just assumed Let's talk about love was over...but they released THLAL. Loved it, but as number 31 in the charts proves (or what ever number it was) it was bad timing. The album had lost momentum.

For me the worst part was all the mess with the D'elles singles... Never got the point and never understood their strategy (was there any?).

Antwerp ~ Paris ~ Dublin ~ Amsterdam ~ Berlim ~ Milan ~ Arras

Some people need no slogans or presentations.




And that was a wrap, folks!

Completely agree about "D'Elles" strategy !  :confused:

Why not single "Femme comme chacune", or "Les Paradis" !  :confused: They are nice song !

The D'elles singles were complete mess. Why did they only release ESNRQ?, and then have promos for I and AC?

The same applies with Taking Chances, the only single was TC (& EOM for UK, AWTBI for Japan), and that was it! Why can't we be back in the days of FIY/ LTAL. They milked those albums dry!!

I totally agree. More should have been done to promote the Taking Chances album and Shadow Of Love / Fade Away/ Surprise Surprise should have been released as singles.

haha yeah my love... we have seen it all, the useless releases the flop and fall  :whistling:

I dunno what GTSW was all about, only that céline looked amazing in the video :P but it killed the album!! HYEBIL should have been a single from ANDHC! I still can't believe Sony NL pulled back that single, even though the ugly video got played on the biggest music station here!! :doh: it was the last video I saw of Céline on tv  :down:
and I don't like SFL that much, but it could have been a hit, just like RIFOY!

what I loved about the THLAL release, was that it had the Unison mix on the single!  :wub: LOL!! I still don't get why this was a single and even a part of the tour!  :whistling: LOL!!

and about D'elles and also Taking Chances, I think that they (sony, rene, celine) decide which songs will be a 'single' way before the album is released and more important, way before they know the reaction of fans/critics/people on the songs! which is a huge mistake of course!  :whistling: Look at TC: on the sticker it says; 'TC, A and EOM', they never intended to release or promo any other song, even though FA got a massive response! the 'strategy' was already determented and nothing would change that.

D'elles and 1f4t are kinda similar:

1st single hugely (for todays standards) promoted
TLDH and ESNRQ both number 1

2nd single somewhat promoted but
EJTAE: the video comes too late and is horrible!
I: the video is nice, but there's no real single; it's a b-side to TC in France, but it's not mentioned anywhere!

3rd single; no promotion what so ever!
CN: the video comes too late, no physical single
AC; great remix, but they decide to push Alone instead, which flops, not even a video for both songs!  :blink:  :rolleyes:

It's like they are afraid to actually score hits these days  :shrug:

Yeah, Céline looked fabulous in the GTSW video (i think that's the only thing that made worth that single) but it killed the album as you said. And surely, RIFOY, as well as WTWOLYR would have had hot radio airplay :in_love:
But Sony doesn't have ears for Céline's happy and uptempo songs, only for her sad and slow ballads :glare:  :evil:
