Perez Hilton: Whitney Houston Passed Away
[Notice that in the headlines, even the word 'death/died' is inevitable. There really are no euphemisms for death, what's the point of that anyway. Death is death, nothing more, nothing less.]
What is shocking news. This for sure will be the highlight of the week.. of the month.. of the year.. who knows how long the people will remember the day of her death. But this one I'm sure, people will absolutely remember her songs.
So I say thank you for the music, Whitney.
"I Will Always Love You" (1992)
I hope life treats you kind And I hope you have all you've dreamed of. And I wish to you, joy and happiness. But above all this, I wish you love.
And I will always love you."The Greatest Love of All" (1986)
I believe the children are our are future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be.
I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
If I fail, if I succeed
At least I'll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me
They can't take away my dignity.
The greatest love of all"Didn't We Almost Have It All?" (1987)
Is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all.
Didn't we almost have it allWhen love was all we had worth giving?The ride with you was worth the fall my friendLoving you makes life worth livingDidn't we almost have it allThe nights we held on till the morningYou know you'll never love that way againDidn't we almost have it all"Saving All My Love For You" (1985)
A few stolen moments is all that we share You've got your family, and they need you there Though I've tried to resist, being last on your list But no other man's gonna doSo I'm saving all my love for you"I Wanna Dance With Somebody" (1987)
I wanna dance with somebody.. somebody who loves me.Source: Top 10 Whitney Songs
