We take a look at our top 5 Whitney Houston songs.
Back in October 1988, Whitney Houston achieved her third UK number one hit single with One Moment in Time. Below, we’ve chosen our top 5 songs from the talented songstress.
The single became one of the top 25 best-selling singles of 1985 in the UK.
This was a huge hit across the world and went on to win an Emmy to top off its tremendous performance. Houston recorded the song for the 1988 Summer Olympics and the 1988 Summer Paralympics held in Seoul.
This song actually debuted at number 36 in the UK Singles Chart, before peaking at number 5. It’s thought the track sold about 280,000 copies in the UK. Frankly, we think it deserved more.
Surely one of the most well-known songs from Houston? According to The Official Charts Company, it has sold 760,000 copies in the UK. And must have been danced to by millions at wedding receptions across the country!
Written by the one and only Dolly Parton, Houston recorded the song for the soundtrack to The Bodyguard (but you knew that, didn’t you?)
Houston’s version of a massive hit across the world, appearing at number 49 on Billboard’s ‘Greatest Songs of All Time’. It sold over 1,550,000 copies in the UK, becoming the tenth best-selling single of 1990s.
A worthy number one, then.
