Somebody Loves Somebody

Album: Loved Me Back To Life (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This minor key cut is one of a couple of tracks on Loved Me Back To Life (the other one is "Breakaway") co-penned by Audra Mae, a singer­songwriter from Oklahoma who's also the great-great-niece of Judy Garland. Dion told Billboard magazine: "I have always been jealous of people who, they go out at night, they have a drink or two - or three or four - and the next morning they feel hoarse and sound bad, but then they take their guitar and they sing, and you just cry because it's so raw. It's so heartfelt. So painful in a good way. And I was just like, 'I want to be broken apart a little bit too. I don't have that broken life, which is great, but can I borrow that from you? Please teach me.' And she taught me. She was a big influence for me."
