Friday Night Celine

Have you ever watched a video online, and about a minute into it, you realize that you have your hands covering your face in horror but you were too fascinated to turn away? I just had this happen to me.

I’m all for taking pop songs and putting them to the words of Jewish liturgy. I for one am never able to do Final Jeopardy because the second that theme song comes on, I’m singing Adon Olam. Same goes for Rock Around the Clock.
But this video is so freakin’ weird I don’t know what to do with it. The video is Eshet Hayil, sung to the tune of My Heart Will Go On, by Celine Dion. That in and of itself would be weird enough. But whoever loaded this video thought it would be appropriate to put pictures of the Titanic throughout the song (quick reminder: My Heart Will Go On was Titanic’s theme song).

Quick Note #1: To my future wife: This is the tune I will be singing every Shabbat dinner. If you don’t like it, don’t sign the ketubah. I’ve also already picked out our kids nicknames. We can talk about that another time.

Quick Note #2: People at BangItOut, keep on finding the great videos.

Quick Note #3: I forgot how young Leo was in that movie. Just sayin’
