Celine Dion Songs Used to Torture Residents in Major City

via ITV

Residents of Porirua, New Zealand, are complaining about loud and continuous playing of Celine Dion songs during the night.

Cars and bicycles equipped with multiple sirens and speakers compete in contests where the music is played at high volume.

The contests start in the evening and can last until the early hours of the morning, disturbing the peace of the residents.

Nearly 300 residents have signed a petition demanding the city council to stop these contests.

“It’s a headache,” Porirua Mayor Anita Baker told AFP.

Dion won five Grammy Awards and two Academy Awards. She is the best-selling female artist of all time with hits like “I’m Alive” and “My Heart Will Go On.”

“They love Celine Dion,” the mayor confessed, adding “They like anyone with a high pitch and great tone in their voice.”

“It’s really loud music. They only play a quarter of the song, so it’s like having a turntable and it comes screeching out.”

“I’m sick of the disturbing of the peace that sometimes goes on for hours,” wrote Diana Paris, on the petition’s Change.org account.

“Although I enjoy listening to Céline Dion in the comfort of my lounge and at my volume, I do not enjoy listening to fragments of it stopping and starting anytime between 7pm and 2am.”

The mayor is also frustrated and wants the participants to move to areas where the noise won’t bother others.

Police have received numerous reports of incidents related to these contests.
