Music Monday: Whitney Houston
My favorite was "How Will I Know" (which I use to sing about my 2nd grade crush...dramatic I know!) and "I Want to Dance with Somebody" (where in my mind I empathised with Whit because I TOO wanted to dance with somebody in the 2nd grade). As I got older Whitney still had it and I continued to be a fan of her music with songs like "I'm Your Baby Tonight" and "Heartbreak Hotel".
There is no denying that she was gifted, and her voice was that of record breaking status. Even when things started to get weird (thanks Bobby) she was still Whitney. SNL did a great job with Maya Rudolph as Whitney and she herself was a parody of herself on her reality show. So thank you Whitney. Thanks for being a part of my childhood memories, and my laughs as an adult. Your music will live on forever.
