Me neither. It was Whitney's voice and the cute video that really made that song, imo.


Right, but I'm sure Janet would've made it work. She has similar songs, like Miss You Much and Love Will Never Do.

^ You guys really think Janet could sing that song? "MYM" or "LWNDWY" aren't nearly as high as that song. I'm sure the demo wasn't that high (obviously) but I just can't hear it.

I could see her singing a modified version of it. Obviously it wouldn't be anywhere near the tour de force that Whitney's version was, it just would have been a cute track.

Weirder things have happened- didn't La Isla Bonita almost go to MJ?

Right. Obviously it wouldn't be a BIG vocal, but Janet can sing pretty high too, and she's made several similar uptempo songs work for her with background vocals, etc. I probably would've liked the song by Janet as well.

I guess it could have been like "WITOY". On "LIB" the instrumental was offered to Michael and he passed on it.

Whitney Houston: First Woman With Three Albums In Billboard 200's Top 10

by Keith Caulfield, L.A. | February 29, 2012 6:15 EST

This week, the late Whitney Houston becomes the first woman to place three albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart at the same time.

"Whitney: the Greatest Hits" holds at No. 2 with 174,000 (down less than 1% according to Nielsen SoundScan), "The Bodyguard" soundtrack jumps 38-6 (47,000; up 176%) and "Whitney Houston" motors 37-9 (30,000; up 72%).



She's also found at No. 16 ("I Look to You," 19,000; up 109%), No. 30 ("My Love Is Your Love," 15,000; up 312%), No. 39 ("I'm Your Baby Tonight," 13,000; up 262%), No. 105 ("The Preacher's Wife," 5,000; down 30%), No. 126 ("Just Whitney," 4,000; up 57%), No. 133 ("Whitney," 4,000; down 43%). One more title is at No. 73. It's a three-CD bundle of "Baby," "My Love" and "Just Whitney." It sold 7,000 (up 423%).



HOUSTON'S ALBUM SALES CLIMB



In total, for the week ending Feb. 26, Houston's albums sold 320,000 (up up 29% compared to the previous week's haul of 247,000). She also sold 373,000 tracks this week -- down 75% compared to the week previous (1.5 million). Since her death, she has sold 668,000 albums and 2.76 million tracks.



As physical stock of Houston's albums are finally reaching retail outlets, we see some of those older catalog sets make moves up the list. Since her death on Feb. 11, the bulk of her album sales have come from digital downloads, as most retailers didn't have physical copies of her albums on-hand.



This past week, downloads made up 8.4% of her total album sales. That's a steep drop from her digital share the week previous, when downloads were 54% of her overall album sum.



A HISTORIC TOP 10



Houston's placement of three titles in the Billboard 200's top 10 amazingly marks the first time in almost 44 years that an act has accomplished the feat.



The last time an act scored three simultaneous top 10 sets was on July 6, 1968, when Simon & Garfunkel were at Nos. 1, 2 and 10. That week, "Bookends" was tops, followed by "The Graduate" soundtrack in the runner-up slot and "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme" at No. 10.



Billboard launched its first all-encompassing pop albums chart on Aug. 17, 1963 -- which combined both mono and stereo albums. Previously, we had separate tallies for mono and stereo recordings.



Since then, aside from Houston and Simon & Garfunkel, the only other acts to net three albums in the top 10 at the same time were the Beatles; Peter, Paul & Mary and Herb Albert & the Tijuana Brass. (All did it on various weeks between 1964 and 1966).



Herb Albert & the Tijuana Brass holds the record for the most concurrent top 10 albums on the Billboard 200, with four (April 4, 1966).



DON'T FORGET THE KING OF POP & THE FAB FOUR



Presently, the Billboard 200 ranks the week's biggest-selling albums in the U.S. -- regardless of their age. Thus, this is why Houston's self-titled 1985 debut is among more recently-released in the top 10 this week.



However, as of the chart dated Dec. 5, 2009, the Billboard 200 altered its rules to let older albums -- also known as "catalog" titles -- to chart alongside newer releases.



Thus, it must be noted that had the Billboard 200 allowed catalog albums to chart previous to then, both Michael Jackson and the Beatles would have claimed three simultaneous top 10 titles that year.



On the now-defunct Top Comprehensive Albums chart (which ranked both new and old albums), Michael Jackson posthumously notched three or more of the top 10 for seven different weeks after his death on June 25. For two of those frames (July 25 and Aug. 1) he owned an incredible six of the top 10 best-selling albums of the week.



Later that year, on Sept. 26, 2009, after the Beatles' reissued and remastered its studio albums on CD, the fab four earned five of the top 10.

IWALY has that effect on me as well. It's gone from a love song to having more meaning.

The sax on that song is life as well.

Warner Bros./Photofest

Warner Bros. will celebrate the romantic thriller's 20th anniversary with showings throughout the country on March 28.

It has been 20 years since Whitney Houston's box-office hit The Bodyguard first hit theaters, and to celebrate that anniversary, Warner Bros. and NCM Fathom have teamed to release the film in theaters throughout the country for one night.

Fans who want to see the film, starring Houston as a famous singer who hires a former Secret Service agent (Kevin Costner) to act as her bodyguard and protect her from violent stalkers, can head to one of the 400 select theaters nationwide at 7:30 p.m. local time March 28.

The Bodyguard was the second-highest-grossing film worldwide in 1992. The soundtrack became the best-selling soundtrack of all time, selling more than 42 million copies worldwide. It featured several of Houston's most well-known and fondly remembered songs, including "I Will Always Love You," "I'm Every Woman" and "Queen of the Night."

Two of the late singer's songs from the soundtrack, "I Have Nothing" and "Run to You," were nominated for Oscars.

Although the theatrical showing is timed to the film's 20th anniversary, the recent death of the iconic singer on Feb. 11 is sure to prompt many fans to head to theaters to see Houston on the big screen. Houston died at the Beverly Hilton at age 48.

At the singer's funeral, Costner spoke fondly of working with Houston on The Bodyguard. "A lot of leading men could’ve played my part," he said. "But you, Whitney, I truly believe you were the only one who could’ve played Rachel Marron at that time. You weren’t just pretty, you were as beautiful as a woman could be. And people didn’t just like you, Whitney, they loved you.”

I think ILTY is becoming a bigger hit now than when she was alive.
I gradually kept coming back to this song and liked it more and more as time went by.
Now with her death I, like many other's have become closer to this beautiiful song.

'Exhale' is such a great song. It really has this ability to make you feel better.
