It is Day Three of my #musicwaybackchallenge, and it has been an interesting run for me, having to run through my old musical collections from the past.
My today's "music from way back" is a song from one of the best selling female artists of all-time, the late American singer, Whitney Houston. Whitney Houston is regarded as the most awarded female artist of all-time.
Her achievements during her active musical years are simply remarkable. Her visit to her profile in the above hyperlink will supply anyone with some of her legendary musical awards, statistics, and achievements.
Now, my Day-3 music wayback is ..... a version of the song titled "I will always love you" (By Whitney Houston)
The single "I Will Always Love You" was originally written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Dolly Parton in 1973.
The reason I love the Whitney Houston version of the song is because it was such a sublime vocal masterpiece. The single helped launch Whitney Houston into mainstream global stardom and success. It was also a song that oozed of reminisce for a relationship or partner that one misses on so many romantic levels...😁
It is such a love ballad which I encourage every music lover to listen to (if you haven't heard this lovely track already). It never gets old. It is the definition of an evergreen song.
My nominee today for this lovely challenge would be @turpsy. I'm curious to know how the broda handled his love and romantic heydays via music from way back.
