Avui a la secció Musipèdia us parlem de Whitney Houston, cantautora americana de rythm and blues, pop i gòspel i també pianista i actriu. Va ser una de les cantants més populars de la dècada dels 80 i 90. Va néixer al 1963 i va morir al 2012.

Al 1985 quan va sortir el seu primer àlbum, va ser el disc de debut més venut per una dona amb 25 milions de copies. Encara a dia d’avui manté el record de set números u consecutius. Al 1990 va cantar l’himne en la Super Bowl, versió que és la primera i fins ara queda l’única certificada amb un disc de platí.

Als 90 va debutar com actriu amb la pel·lícula The Bodyguard, amb la qual va aconseguir un gran èxit i la banda sonora de la pel·lícula és la mes venuda de la història. Després va fer la pel·lícula Cinderella amb Disney.

Huh, yeah, woo
Hey yeah, huh
Ooh yeah, uh huh, yeah
I wanna danceClock strikes upon the hour
And the sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my blues away
I’ve done alright up ’til now
It’s the light of day that shows me how
And when the night falls
Loneliness callsOh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves meOh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves meI’ve been in love and lost my senses
Spinning through the town
Sooner or later the fever ends
And I wind up feeling down
I need a man who’ll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart callsOh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves meOh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves meSomebody who, somebody who
Somebody who loves me
Somebody who, somebody who
To hold me in his arms, ohI need a man who’ll take a chance
On a love that burns hot enough to last
So when the night falls
My lonely heart callsOh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves meOh, I wanna dance with somebody
I wanna feel the heat with somebody
Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves meOooh

I Have Nothing: És el tercer senzill de la banda sonora de la pel.lícula The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album. La cançó és una balada amb una orquestració rica i poderosa sobre l’amor profund i el compromís.

Share my life
Take me for what I am
‘Cause I’ll never change
All my colors for you
Take my love
I’ll never ask for too much
Just all that you are
And everything that you doI don’t really need to look
Very much further
I don’t want to have to go
Where you don’t follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
Can’t run from myself
There’s nowhere to hideDon’t make me close one more door
I don’t want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don’t have you, you, you, you, youYou see through
Right to the heart of me
You break down my walls
With the strength of your love, hm
I never knew
Love like I’ve known it with you
Will a memory survive
One I can hold on toI don’t really need to look
Very much further
I don’t want to have to go
Where you don’t follow
I will hold it back again
This passion inside
I can’t run from myself
There’s nowhere to hide
Your love I’ll remember foreverDon’t make me close one more door
I don’t want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothingDon’t make me close one more door
I don’t want to hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me
No, don’t walk away from me
Don’t you dare walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don’t have you, you
If I don’t have you, oh you

All The Man That I Need: Va ser publicat al desembre de 1990 i és el segon senzill de l’àlbum I’m Your Baby Tonight. El vídeoclip va ser digit er Peter Israelson (el mateix director dels videos Greatest Love of All i Where Do Broken Hearts Go) En el video es veu a Houston declarant el seu amor per un home, dient que ell és “tot l’home que necessito”. La cançó té també una certa influència gospel.

I used to cry myself to sleep at night
But that was all before he came
I thought love had to hurt to turn out right
But now he’s here, it’s not the same
It’s not the sameHe fills me up, he gives me love
More love than I’ve ever seen
He’s all I got, he’s all I got in this world
But he’s all the man that I needAnd in the morning when I kiss his eyes
He takes me down and rocks me slow
And in the evening when the moon is high
He holds me close and won’t let go
He won’t let goHe fills me up, he gives me love
More love than I’ve ever seen
He’s all I got, he’s all I got in this world
But he’s all the man that I needHe fills me up (He fills me up)
He gives me love
More love than I’ve ever seen
(Than I’ve ever seen)
He’s all I got (he’s all I’ve got)
He’s all I got in this world
But he’s all the man that I need
(All the man, all the man I need)He fills me up (he fills me up)
He gives me love
More, more love, more love (more love),
More love, more love (than I’ve ever seen)
He’s all I’ve got (he’s all I’ve got)
He’s all I got in this world
But he’s all the man, all the man
(All the man, all the man I need)He fills me up (woo)
More love than I’ve ever seen
He’s all I’ve got
All the man, all the man I need
