Around 3 O'Clock this morning, all I did was check my phone to see what the time was. I then thought to read a random text i'd received. By then I was so wide awake, I signed into my Facebook to see "7 of your friends have posted about Whitney Houston"
My heart just sank as I read the worst news.
I know a lot of you are feeling the same as me, I couldn't & still can't quite get it into my head.
I was born in the late 80s, so I have grown up to her music. I was her ultimate fan. Throughout my teenage years my dad would have such a go at me for taking his Whitney albums & never returning them, lol I was addicted to her voice.
One of the few english songs I actually knew off by heart & absolutely couldn't get enough of was I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU. Listening to this song last night, I had tears streaming down my face. The song just had a whole other meaning.
I've read so many things on social networking sites about her personal life, but not being funny, you might not have a drug problem, but are you perfect? Really?
The ultimate Diva had such an influence on my life. Here are some of my favourite songs..
1. Try It On My Own
"And I am not afraid to try it on my own, I don't care if I'm right or wrong. I've lived my life the way I feel.."
2. My Love is Your Love
"If tomorrow is judgement day, & I'm standing on the frontline, & the Lord asks me what I did with my life, I will say.. I spent it with you"
3. I Have Nothing
"Take my love, I'll never ask for too much, just all that you are & everything that you do"
4. Could I Have This Kiss?
"Over and over I've dreamed of this night, Now you're here by my side, You are next to me"
5. When You Believe
"Who knows what miracles you can achieve, when you believe.. Somehow you will.. You will when you believe!"
6. I Will Always Love You
"Bittersweet memories, that is all i'm taking with me. So, Goodbye. Please, Don't cry. We both know i'm not what you need"
7. It's Not Right, But It's OK
"I'm gonna make it anyway.."
8. Greatest Love of All
"I decided long ago, never to walk in anybody's shadow.."
9. I Wanna Dance With Somebody
"I need a man who'd take the chance.. for the love that burns hot enough to last.."
10. One Moment in Time
"I want one moment in time, When I'm more than I thought I could be, When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away"
Each & every one of these songs are special to me in one way or another & bring back such amazing memories.
