Celine Dion

We gave it a C+

To launch her new ad campaign with Chrysler, Dion resurrects a minor hit for Cyndi Lauper and Roy Orbison. (Car…drive…get it?) Her frigid delivery can’t match the ache in Lauper’s and Orbison’s voices, but at least she doesn’t over-sing, and the arrangement — a little bit dance-club, a little bit rock & roll — is blandly competent. Still, the tie-in makes one realize this has less to do with Dion’s quirky taste in covers and more to do with pleasing her corporate sponsors.
