I hear the ticking of the clock
I'm lying here the room's pitch dark
I wonder where you are tonight
No answer on the telephone
And the night goes by so very slow
Oh I hope that it won't end though
Some songs are just better left as it is..... I heard Celine Dion's version of the Heart's "Alone" and although it was cool that the song was accompanied by the symphony, I still liked Heart's version better. The rock version. Celine's version lacked the emotion and passion that Heart poured into their version. It felt like Celine just did it for the sake of doing it. But Alone was one of the biggest hit ever, you really can't be nonchalant about that and sing it the way Celine did it, you're bound to be criticized because everyone remembers how Heart did it! Listen to Heart's original version and tell me what you think.
