4. Flo Rida’s “Low” has sold 8 million copies – the same as The Beatles “Hey Jude”

5. The Black Eyed Peas “Ive got a feeling” is more popular than any Simon & Garfunkel or Elvis song.

6. Celine Dion’s “Falling Into You” sold more copies than any Queen, Nirvana, or Bruce Springsteen record.

In an ironic twist of fate, diners in one of the ill-fated cruise ship’s restaurants were listening to Céline Dion’s hit single My Heart Will Go On – the theme tune to James Cameron’s epic starring Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet – when it struck rocks on Friday night.

How is this song not banned on all cruise lines? That’s like playing the movie “Alive” on an airplane.
