#FavoriteWhitneySong: What's yours?

Trying to single out just one of Whitney Houston's songs as an all-time favorite feels like an impossible task: For so many of us, she provided the soundtrack to a number of memorable moments in our lives.

On Twitter Saturday night, #FavoriteWhitneySong was trending as fans shared some of their beloved tunes. Over the course of her career, Houston collected six Grammys, was the first artist to have seven consecutive No. 1 hits, and was undoubtedly the singer who influenced many of the pop stars we hear today.

But if we had to choose some of our favorite Houston songs, the list would surely include her smash from "The Bodyguard" soundtrack, "I Will Always Love You."

Dolly Parton, who wrote the song, said in a statement, "mine is only one of the millions of hearts broken over the death of Whitney Houston. I will always be grateful and in awe of the wonderful performance she did on my song and I can truly say from the bottom of my heart, 'Whitney, I will always love you. You will be missed.'"

That's not to mention some of her earlier cuts, like "I Wanna Dance with Somebody"

...And "How Will I Know."

And last but not least, her 1991 performance at the Super Bowl, which has been a gold standard for performing the national anthem for years:

The Recording Academy, which is preparing for Sunday's 54th Grammy Awards, said in a statement, "Whitney Houston was one of the world's greatest pop singers of all time who leaves behind a robust musical soundtrack spanning the past three decades. Her powerful voice graced many memorable and award-winning songs. A light has been dimmed in our music community today, and we extend our deepest condolences to her family, friends, fans and all who have been touched by her beautiful voice."

So tell us: What are your favorite Whitney Houston songs?

    I should say "Will always love you", but back in the days I really went crazy for "I'm your baby tonight".For that end of year party I wore the same kind of dress (had it tailored!!!), hairdo, lipstick etc etc as she had in the video. I felt like a star.

    My favs: National Anthem, You give good love. Gosh, there are so many but i will have to say her gospel songs always spoke to my spirit and brought tears to my eyes: HE'S ALL OVER ME, AND He's KEEPING ME ALIVE she sung that with Pastor Shirley Ceasar, JOY TO THE WORLD (no one could sing that like WHitney) and I'm HASTEN to HIS throne...just the thought of her singing it brings tears to my eyes.
    I love the the Lord, he heard my cry
    And pitied every groan, long as I, I live
    And troubles rise, I hasten to his throne
    Chorus:
    Oh, I love the Lord
    I sure do, surely do love the Lord
    He heard, he heard my cry
    And pitied every groan, yes he did
    Every groan
    Long as I live, long as I, I live
    And troubles rise, troubles rise
    I hasten to to to to to
    I'll hasten, I'll hasten to his throne
    I'll hasten to his throne hold on hold on
    Tears are streaming down my eyes
    [ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/i-love-the-lord-lyrics-whitney-houston.html ]

    I'll hasten, I'll hasten to his throne
    Yes I will, I'll run
    I know I can go to his throne
    I know I can go, I know I can go
    I'll hasten, I'm gonna run
    I know I can go, I know I can go
    I'll hasten, I'll hasten to his throne
    See I can run, Lord you know I will
    When there is nowhere to go I know I can go to you
    I know I can run to you oh
    I'll hasten, I'll hasten to his, his throne
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    I'll hasten, hasten to his throne
    Surely gonna be here

    The first time I heard "that voice" was in 1984, a year before her first album was released. The song was "Hold Me", a duet with Teddy Pendergrass. I couldn't get over that voice. The DJ annouced it was Teddy Pendergrass featuring Whitney Houston. I wanted to know who was Whitney Houston? Little did I know it would a name I would never forget.

    My favorite song, I want to dance with somebody who loves me, hands down- it showed Whitney in the best years of her storied but tragic life, I was stationed in Germany with the Canadian Army when that video first came out and I loved it. She was so vibrant and beautiful in that video, I am shedding a tear thinking about it now.....that being said, during the first Gulf war, when she sang your National Anthem it brought a shiver down my spine watching it and hearing it and at the same time being a tiny bit jealous...that we had no one sing " O' Canada" with the same passion and grace at that time.

    I was absolutely devastated this morning after getting a text from a friend saying Whitney died. It's like he stabbed me.. I was just about to listen to a few of her classic live performances, which I do to cheer myself up. Her strength, her elegance, her spirit, her sincerity.. She's always inspired me to use what God has blessed me with and share with the rest of the world, giving my best and always stay true to who u r. All of Whitney's songs are favorites, yet I'd say 'I Will Always Love You', 'I Have Nothing' and 'My Love Is Your Love'. Dear Nippy, I pray God will give u second chance. Rest in peace beautiful Soul and Voice.

    An artist of Whitney Houston's magnitude performed songs that became the soundtrack of the lives of so many of her fans since she hit the scene in the 80's. My favorite song as a Vietnam Era Veteran would undoubtably be her rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" at the Superbowl which will never be topped. But all of her songs from "I Want To Dance With Somebody" to "The Greatest Love" to "I Will Always Love You" have impacted all of use at those times in our lives that the songs were released. The spirit of her life on this earth will always remain.

    Whitney – you will always live in the fabric of pop music. Your music is legend...your charm and grace – iconic. I was in my 20's when your music hit the scene. I danced to all of your hits...the floor was always packed...and everyone smiled during your songs. Your gift was great...but your star burned out too soon. I guess God wanted to keep your voice to Himself.

    Thank you, Whitney – you will never been forgotten. Thank you for making my 20's so fun. God bless you.

    I grew up listening to her music and always thought she had such a beautiful and poweful voice.

Another one is "I Wanna Dance With Somebody"-I can remember being very young, and my friends and I choreographing dance moves for this song which I still remember to this day! She was a very talented person and its very sad that her life turned so tragic. Rest In Peace now!

    "One Moment in Time" helped me through a very sad, emotional and overwhelming time of dealing with an extremely painful divorce and learning that my children were victimized by their father to the ultimate degree". This song gave hope and strength to keep pushing on. Now, my children are married and I have 18 grandchildren, with the oldest soon to be 19 and the youngest 5 months of age. Of course her peformance in the Bodyguard with the song, "I will always love you just fills my heart and is also a song of faith and courage to those who recognize a love that cannot be!". I personally will miss her for as she struggled with her own issues and demons, I believe in my heart that she also gave so much inspiration, comfort and hope to others who also struggled. Her legacy should be one that exemplifies her beautiful and powerful voice along with the inspiration she gave to so many. My prayers go to her family members, to close friends and her second family in the entertainment world who loved her as well. God bless all of us for she will be missed dearly, however, her music will live on and I am grateful for the music which was a true gift to me." With Sincere Heartfelt Thoughts Gail Marie

I am sure there will hundreds of stories out there about her untimely and unfortunate death, but why speculate? Leave it be and have some respect for her and her family.

When she performed it live at the Grammys in 2009 It was such a profound moment. The words to the song took on a whole new meaning that night....and the last line of the song, "I will be free." takes on a whole new meaning tonight. Whitney, you are now free! Thank you God for the gift of Whitney Houston!

    Please play some of her spiritual music that she sang. I look to you; I didn't know my own strength those were beautiful songs that define her darkest moments.

      The National Anthem
      This world will truly miss hearing Whitney beautiful voice and radiant smile. I want all who read this to know, if they don't already she not only a great singer; but a very generous person. When she sang the National Anthem at an Atlanta Braves Baseball Game and the recording were sold; she asked all proceeds go directly to the soldiers and their families during Operation Desert Storm. I know this for a fact, because I was blessed to be a recipient. I was paying back an over payment by the US Army in monthly installments. After a few payments I received a letter say "...your debt has been paid in full ...by donations received from Ms. Houston..." As I reflex on Ms. Houston's generosity, I can on here the word to the theme from the "Body Guard”; “…I must go.." She had to leave us and go to heaven. I am move by her talent as a singer, commitment as a mother, patriotism and love for people she didn’t know personally. People will tell our stories of how Whitney's singing made us feel; I can say a soldier how I feel - she truly cared. Thank you Whitney and I look forward to hearing you in heaven someday.

      Whitney Houston beautiful women with a extrodinary voice. I loved her music and loved her in all the movies she was in. My uncle and friends were in her movie The Preachers Wife and I was told she was along with her mom, Lionel Richie and many others were a pleasure to work with. It saddens my heart to hear of death. Another musical artist gone so early in life. My heart goes out to her family. Whitny "I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU".........R.I.P.

      You are so right about her doing the national anthem as a staple now of star performances at not just the Super Bowl, but other important events as well. I will miss Whitney Houston deeply. When I heard last evening around 8 on MSNBC, I thought it was rumors. I became saddened as the night went on and confrmations began to come that she had indeed passed on. My favorite song is " I Have Nothing." Rest In Peace, Whitney. We will miss you.

      Yes, her version of the National Anthem is THE BEST. But my favorite will always be "One Moment in Time" a reminder of a 6th grade classmate who knew what she wanted to do at such a young age. Hearing the conviction in her voice gave me goosebumps. Donna wanted to run in the Olympics. She set records, and I am convinced that she would have made it in 1980. She made it to the finals in 1984 and ran against the gold medalist. Thanks for the memories Donna and Whitney.

      All of Ms. Houston's songs were great. My personal favorite is from her second album, 1987's "Whitney". I liked most of the songs on that album, but my personal favorite will always be "Just the Lonely Talking Again". I also loved her duets with Teddy Pendergrass ["Hold Me" kills me] & Jermaine Jackson: their version of "Nobody Loves Me Like You Do" and "Take Good Care of My Heart" from 1985's "Whitney Houston". Her duet with Jermaine on his "Precious Moments" LP, "If You Say My Eyes Are Beautiful" is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever had the pleasure to hear. She was a beautiful lady with a gorgeous voice, yet her soul was so troubled. My heart aches for her mother, Cissy, her brothers, and especially her daughter, Bobbi Kristina. Wherever Whitney is now, I hope she is resting in peace.

      Whitney Houston glowed. There wasn't anything she couldn't sing that didn't sound like it came from the heavens above.

      Whitney was undoubtedly at her best in live singing...which is why her renditions of "All the Man that I Need" are my favorite by her live....I Love the Lord is by far my favorite studio recording.

      I feel the loss...my favorite and tear jerker was I will always love you! Her singing of the National Anthem will always tear at my heart as she so personalized it. You felt what she felt...I love her and always will and be a deep missed friend.
