#MyFive Whitney Houston Songs

I just found out about Whitney's passing and I'm very sad. Since I'm stuck home sick tonight, I figured I'd celebrate her memory and share my favorite songs and videos.

5) I'm Your Baby Tonight - This was the first Whitney single I purchased with my own money, and that video was fierce! So many Whitney's all looking sheik and sassy. Watch her fashionable sass in the I'm Your Baby Tonight video.

4) How Will I Know - Pure pop fun, both in song and video. I was a wee lil' gay, but the colors and fun in this video grabbed my attention very quickly. Check out the awesome hair and moves in the How Will I Know video.

3) I Have Nothing - I know "I Will Always Love You" is everybody's favorite Bodyguard tune, but this one's mine. Her voice SOARED in this song, and just kept goin' higher and higher. I believed. Check out the I Have Nothing video.

2) Saving All My Love For You - I liked this song when I was a kid, but when I rediscovered it as an adult, I fell in love with its lyrics, when I fell in love for the first time. See her subtle and sweet love song in the Saving All My Love For You video.

1) All The Man I Need - It's my ultimate Whitney song and one of my favorite love songs ever. So sexy, powerful, and moving. I didn't know who she was singing to, but I wanted to find him. Check out the amazing All The Man I Need video.

I'm gonna pop some NyQuil and loop a nice slow Whitney playlist as I fall asleep. Thanks for all the memories Whitney. You will never be forgotten.

  1. I'm with you - I've always enjoyed "I Have Nothing" more than "I Will Always Love You." If I'm being honest, I've always been more partial to the Dolly version of the latter.
