I have developed this thing for Whitney Houston songs. I think I know when it started. I was listening to Spotify one day at work and Sam Smith came on singing "How Will I Know" by Whitney Houston. It was haunting and wonderful and I couldn't stop listening to it. Then I started listening to her playlist at home. I was introducing Whitney to my daughter. We watched a documentary on her. I let Janet watch parts of The Bodyguard.
As I listen to her singing. I am realizing that my life is feeling like a Whitney Houston song. I have been listening to her greatest hits and I resonant with each and every song that I have been hearing lately. I sing along with her with tears streaming down my face because her words, the words that she sings tell me my story better than a lot of things.
I plan on sharing these thoughts with you but I find that I can not share these songs in just one little blog post. All this to say, don't be surprised when I pepper my random ideas with a dissection of one of Whitney's songs.
Love me some Whitney.
