The details surrounding the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster get stranger and stranger. Now some survivors say there was at least one eerie coincidence between the catastrophe and the one that befell the Titanic a century ago: music.

Two of the ship’s passengers told a Swiss paper that Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On,’ the hit theme song from James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster film ‘Titanic,’ was playing in one of the Costa Concordia’s dining rooms just as the vessel started to go down.

So maybe cruise lines should review their musical choices. Seems to us that playing that tune on a ship is akin to showing plane crash scenes during in-flight movies.
