If You Asked Me To: Patti LaBelle vs Celine Dion





The same song done by 2 different singers: original by Soul superdiva Patti LaBelle and the cover by the pop diva Celine Dion. Patti's version in the year 1989 reached number 79 at US Billboard Top 100. Celine's version in the year 1992 reached number 4 at Billboard Top 100. Celine didn't do much to change the song but her version was more successful perhaps due to the reason that she's white and Patti's black. I still think that Patti's version outsing Celine's in every way. Why don't you watch by yourself and decide. This song was written by the songwriter Dianne Warren.
Used to be that I believed in something,
Used to be that I believed in love,
It's been a long time since I've had that feelin',
I could love someone,
I could trust someone.
I said I'd never let nobody near my heart again, darlin',
I said I'd never let nobody in,
But, If you asked me to I just might change my mind,
And let you in my life forever,
If you asked me to I just might give my heart,
And stay here in your arms forever.
If you asked me to,
If you asked me to,
Somehow ever since I've been around you,
Can't go back to being on my own Can't help feelin',
darlin', since I've found you,
That I've found my home,
That I've found my home.
I said I'd never let nobody get to close to me, darlin',
I said I needed, needed to be free,
But, If you asked me to I just might change my mind,
And let you in my life forever,
If you asked me to I just might give my heart,
And stay here in your arms forever.
If you asked me to
If you asked me to
Ask me to I will give my world to you baby
I need you now (I need you now)
Ask me to and I'll do anything for you, baby,
For you, baby.
If you asked me to,
I'll let you in my life forever,
If you asked me to,
All you gotta do is ask me to,
All you gotta do, All you gotta do
All you gotta do is ask me to
If you ask me to (I'll give you my word, I'll give you my heart)
Everything, Everything Baby
If you ask me to, just ask me to

menarik untuk diperhatikan bahwa Celine Dion hanya mampu menahan "For you Baby" selama 10 detik sedang Patti menahannya hingga lebih dari 20 detik.
