So right about now, you're thinking, oh, great, another tribute post, blah, blah, blah. But this one has a twist. I have never consciously listened to a Whitney Houston song. No idea why, it just never came up. I'm sure I've heard at least a few before (we'll just have to see), but if you were to ask right now, "name a few of her songs," I wouldn't be able to even get one right. So here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to listen to 5 Whitney Houston songs, one after the other, at random. As I do this, I'll type about them. It'll be different, at least. Here we go!
My Love is Your Love
First, the obvious: yes, she had a fantastic voice. Particularly in the lower register. In the context of this song, it's kind of simultaneously light and heavy - she's almost mumbling or whispering a good part of the time, but her voice just cuts through the bass and the backup vocals like a red-hot feather.
