Let's Just Replace Commentators With The Titanic Music Whenever Barcelona Plays

Every Barcelona moment sounds better set to Celine Dion, so let's just cut out the middleman.

This weekend, Barcelona began their season with a 3-1 steamrolling at the hands of Real Madrid. The first goal came at the hands of Barcelona center back Gerard Pique, who hates Real Madrid with the fiery white-hot passion of a thousand suns and was none too pleased about putting the ball into his own net so Madrid didn't have to.

To accentuate Pique's sadness, some intrepid Internet person set Pique's Blunder to the saddest song in popular culture, courtesy of Celine Dion.

This is not the first time Barcelona and Celine Dion have crossed paths. Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," best known as the theme from the movie Titanic, has been linked to major Barcelona moments in the past, most noably Sergi Roberto's goal against PSG in the Champions League and Lionel Messi's winner in El Clasico.

 

Here's the thing: "My Heart Will Go On" is perfect for these big moments, but it should not be limited to them. At the very least, there should be a simultaneous broadcast during Barcelona games (like the coaches' room during the college football national championship game) that just plays "My Heart Will Go On" on a loop. I would prefer this to Ray Hudson. Maybe you would too, maybe not, but you should have the option, is what I'm saying.

You could switch between broadcasts if the song got too tiring for you, jumping to the Titanic channel whenever it looked like something interesting might happen. 

I'm open to ideas on how to make this actually work. With Barcelona in dire need of something to raise morale, they should be willing to try anything, and that anything should include "My Heart Will Go On."
