Celine Dion All By Myself

COVER vs ORIGINAL: ‘All By Myself’

The song, “All By Myself”, was originally released in 1975 by Eric Carmen.

Torch song, heartfelt epic, tear jerker, whatever you want to call it, “All By Myself” is a song for all those who are lonely but don’t want to be. American singer and songwriter Eric Carmen (born 1949) released the original in December 1975 and took it to No.2 in the US and No.12 in the UK.

In December 1996, Canadian singer Celine Dion released her version from her album “Falling Into You” and took it to No.4 in the US and No.6 in the UK – beating Carmen’s original in that territory. The song was later used in the first ‘Bridget Jones’ film and performed over the opening titles by Australian singer Jamie O’Neal.

So which is best? ERIC CARMEN’s original or CELINE DION’s cover?
