Have You Ever Been in Love (song)

“Have You Ever Been in Love” is a song recorded by Canadian recording artist Celine Dion, included first on her seventh English studio album A New Day Has Come (2002) and later, on her eight English studio album One Heart (2003). The song is a power ballad, written by Anders Bagge, Peer Åström, Tom Nichols, Daryl Hall and Laila Bagge, while production was handled by Bagge & Peer.

“Have You Ever Been in Love” builds from a gentle, piano-laced opening into a theatrical, string-framed climax. The song received acclaim from music critics, while being reviewed in both albums. Many critics called it a classic-sounding ballad and one of the strongest cuts from the album. Critics also noted similarities between Dion and Barbra Streisand.

“Have You Ever Been in Love” was released on April 14, 2003, as One Heart’s second (promotional only) single in the United States and Canada, while on November 3, 2003, it was released as the third commercial single in selected European countries.
