what about a dubstep backing

I actually thought the instrumental arrangement was impressive - lots of interesting and unusual chord changes and such to go with the vocal flourishes.

"Million Dollar Bill" (2009)

Whitney’s last shot was a return to the original Eighties game plan, except at this point, her vocals were too ravaged for either pop or soul.

Voice on "Million Dollar Bill" doesn't sound ravaged to me at all.

For anyone not aware of this, her funeral service is all over the television right now.

When I was in...probably sixth grade and listening to pop radio incessantly, I awoke to "Love Will Save The Day". The sun was just coming up and the light was slightly violet through the window and everything felt very calm and peaceful as the vibraphone came in and it really did feel like love might save the day. It's still one of my more idyllic childhood memories.

I wish my radio station had played "Love Will Save the Day."

yeah "my love is your love" has long been the whitney song of choice for people who don't actually like what whitney houston was all about.

I actually do like what Whitney was all about, and it's still my favorite of her singles. That song just puts me in a good place.

this was incredible... much (very very much) as i have always loved Whitney, 'I will always love you' is the one song of hers that I never really loved, certainly never felt, didn't appreciate - and also about the very single song i haven't listened to after she died.
to suddenly hearing it now, after all those thousands? of times i heard it, and now feeling every little part of it. it was me, not Whitney, that hadn't gotten it. the most beautiful thing she's ever sung. beautiful.

I just heard My Love Is Your Love again for the first time in I don't know how long. Catchy as hell, that one!

two years pass...

wow for some reason i had no idea that "i have nothing" was titled "i have nothing," it was easily my favorite whitney hair salon jam when i was a kid

I heard her Jermaine duet on quiet storm a few weeks ago.

I Have Nothing has been on my Spotify playlist for the last five years or so.

"I Have Nothing" is the squarest, greatest song of all time.

Good thing Brad heard it at the beauty parlor, for the women would need hair implants after Whitney blasts the chorus.

"I Have Nothing" is tres pretty and one of the two Whitney songs, along with "Exhale," that I continued to groove to even during those ill advised years of indie snobbery where I was obligated to regard Whitney as The Enemy.
