Obviously with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic being commemorated this year there is a lot of Titanic related trivia out there. Some of it only very loosely related.
According to the Guardian’s Infomania feature on film director James Cameron we now know what song was playing in the Costa Concordia restaurant when it hit the reef earlier this year. It was the theme tune from Cameron’s ‘Titanic’ movie from 1997. That’s right just as passengers were getting scared and wondering what the hell was going on they had to endure the dreadful warbling of Celine Dion as she imitated a strangled cat during what is probably one of my least favourite songs ever, “My Heart Will Go On”
So a cruise ship sinks almost one hundred years after the Titanic and the theme from a Hollywood movie of that disaster is playing in its restaurant as it does. It is a strange coincidence isn’t it? But it’s nothing more, is it?
