  • "Because You Loved Me" is a song by Canadian singer Céline Dion from her twenty-first studio album Falling into You. Written by Diane Warren and produced by David Foster, "Because You Loved Me" was released as a single on February 19, 1996 as the second from the album. A down-tempo pop ballad, its lyrics revolve around the protagonist thanking a loyal loved one for guiding, encouraging, and protecting her throughout her life, and making her who she is today. Warren has said that the song was a tribute to her father. "Because You Loved Me" also serves as the theme song from the 1996 film Up Close & Personal. The song was a commercial success. It became Dion's second single to top the Billboard Hot 100, remaining at number-one for six weeks until its reign was ended by Mariah Carey's "Always Be My Baby". The song became a part of two greatest hits released by Dion: All the Way... A Decade of Song in 1999 and My Love: Essential Collection in 2008. "Because You Loved Me" could be found on the Live in Las Vegas: A New Day... DVD and it was also performed during the 2008-09 Taking Chances Tour. Live performances can be found on the A New Day...
