Sunday Session

New rules - there are no rules!
On Sundays I play music on my blog.
Old or new or in between.
Related or not.
But always songs I love!
Here are my picks for this week.
You can play along by linking up below.
Can't wait to hear your picks.

Happy Sunday!

Last Sunday, as we were driving in the car, we heard the very sad news on the radio that Whitney Houston had been found dead in her hotel room.  Whitney held a huge place in my musical heart in the 80s and early 90s. Not only was she stunning, she had the most amazing voice. I do believe there was a time in my teens that I was going to call my first daughter Whitney...I didn't...but I was going to! Whitney's songs bring back a truck load of memories for me. One of my most prized records was this one...

I couldn't wait to get home from work (this was my 'gap' year when I worked in a bank before I went to college) to play it over and over and over. The year was 1986, I bought it in my lunch break. What a treasure this album was.

So this week's Sunday Session is in memory of Whitney Houston and her beautiful music.
These are my favourite Whitney songs.
What are yours?

RIP Whitney.

  4. I'd already prepared my picks for this week, but here are my favourite Whitney songs anyway:

    Could I Have This Kiss Forever (with Enrique Iglesias):

    I'm Saving All My Love For You:

    I never realised that I was such a fan, but have spent the last half an hour listening to all her songs and remembering.

    1. Thanks for those links Shelly, I just listened to them all! I can't believe I've never heard the one with Enrique before!! But the others I loved, too. So many favourites.

  5. think she has a spot in everyones heart with her voice...

  6. That Whitney LP was the only record in my parents' collection that I actually liked. I remember the cover clear as day! What an album.
