- My heart will go on April 29
Celine Dion is certainly a polarizing artist, but one man's love for her music landed him in trouble with the law.
Gareth Davies, a 47-year-old resident of Kent County in southeast England, ignored noise complaints from his neighbors, repeatedly breaking a noise abatement notice by blasting Celine Dion's Titanic anthem "My Heart Will Go On" repeatedly. After the sixth violation, Medway Council officers seized all of Davies' possessions that could be used to play Dion's music, including his iPod, speakers, 3D TV and PlayStation. Davies also reportedly has a fondness for blasting the Toy Story theme song, "You've Got A Friend in Me."
"People have the right to lead a peaceful existence without it being ruined by loud music," Peter Hicks, the council's portfolio holder for community safety, told BBC News. Davies will be eligible to apply to regain his possessions after 28 days.- -
