[ video take from YouTube. ]

"THEN YOU LOOK AT ME" is the original theme song of the movie "Bicentennial Man" performed by Celine Dion. It was written by James Horner and Will Jennings who happens to be the same persons who wrote the song "My Heart Will Go On" for the movie "Titanic" and which is also performed by Celine.

Supposedly, "THEN YOU LOOK AT ME" will be released as the second single of Celine Dion for her album "ALL THE WAY... A DECADE OF SONG" on December 1999. But unfortunately, the movie "Bicentennial Man" starring Robin Williams was considered a flop so they decided not to release it at all. And accordingly, the second reason was the fact that "That`s The Way It is" which is the first single of the mentioned album became a hit and still strong at the top charts during that time. Anyhow, still it`s good that the music video of the song which was directed by Billie Woodruff was released and was included in "All The Way... A Decade of Song & Video" DVD Album on 2001.

For my honest review, "THEN YOU LOOK AT ME" is a wonderful song... plus the fact that it has a great music video. I just love the way Celine did the video, it`s like looking at it I see a different Celine Dion from the usual one. Haha. Really, it`s nice and the song itself is so meaningful. Too bad, it was not given the chance to be noticed. But of course I understand their point, and all the "marketing" strategies and stuffs they`ve considered... But still I hope it was really released and given some promotional attention. Haha.

But the video is really great, that`s the reason why I decided to feature it this time. And hoping that somehow, im my own little way, the song will be noticed. Enjoy viewing and listening!
