Taking Chances

Music by Kara DioGuardi and David Stewart

Originally Performed by Celine Dion

"Taking Chances" is a song recorded by Canadian singer Celine Dion, taken from her tenth English-language studio album of the same name (2007). It was written by Kara DioGuardi and former Eurythmics member, Dave Stewart for their band named Platinum Weird. The song was supposed to be released as a single in February 2007 from their unreleased self-titled album. However, after DioGuardi and Stewart recorded it, they played the track for Dion's husband René Angélil, who loved it and she recorded it.

It was released as the first single from Taking Chances in September 2007. "Taking Chances" is a pop ballad with a soft rock finish. Lyrically, it is about trusting and baring our souls to each other and committing to making something special. The line, "So talk to me, like lovers do" came from the Eurythmics song "Here Comes the Rain Again." The song received positive reviews from music critics, who praised Dion for taking risks and called it a hopeful and heartfelt song.
