Composed by Jim Steinman. First sung by female pop group Pandora’s Box in 1989. Celine Dion released her version in 1996. The composer said of the song “it was inspired by Wuthering Heights and was an attempt to write the most passionate and romantic song he could ever create”. American singer Meat Loaf had wanted to record the song but Jim Steinman won a court order preventing this. He said he saw it as a woman’s song. Meat Loaf eventually recorded the song in 2006 as a duet with Norwegian singer Marion Raven. The music video for Celine Dion’s version was filmed between 29th June and 3rd July 1996 in the Ploskovice Summer Palace of the Austrian Emperors and at Barandov Studios in Prague, Czech Republic. Castle Ploskovice in Ploskovice supplied the exterior of the gothic mansion. The song reached No.1 in Belgium, Canada, and the USA. Chart-History.
