IT'S HARD TO SAY GOODBYE ~ CELINE DION AND PAUL ANKA
The song was originally called as "Foolish Lullaby" which is originally recorded by Laura Branigan. The song was covered in 1998 as a duet between Paul Anka and Céline Dion for Anka's A Body of Work album. This version has completely new lyrics written by Anka and is titled "It's Hard to Say Goodbye". It was released as a promotional single on September 14, 1998 in the United States. Céline Dion and Paul Anka recorded earlier a bilingual version, in which Dion sings in Spanish and Anka in English. Entitled "Mejor Decir Adios," it was included on Paul Anka's Amigos album, released on July 30, 1996. Adrian Posse and Humberto Gatica wrote the Spanish lyrics. Anka also recorded the song with Regine Velasquez in 1993 on her album Reason Enough.
