    I now wish I had slotted in Exhale (Shoop Shoop) - it's really gentle and gorgeous. It was only when I read someone mention that Bev 'dual carriage-way nostrils' Knight cited it as her fave that I gave it a proper go.

    I realized today that 'Whitney' is among my all time favourite albums. Probably not a popular opinion, but I can't find a single weak track.

    I have become OBSESSED with Whitney Houston in the past 12 months, but this top ten is a fucking disgrace- WHAT DRUGS WAS I ON? What really is odd for me is how, back in THOSE days, I entirely overlooked the overplayed MEGAHITZ, when now they suddenly seem SO much more important. Maybe subconsciously I was trying to be CONTRARY (moi?!), but I already owned all the records but IN WHAT FUCKING WORLD is "How Will I Know" (literally one of the greatest pop songs of all time) not at least top 10? I was a FOOL!

    Anyway, THROW DOWN > SLOW DOWN1

    1. How Will I Know?
    2. It's Not Right But It's Okay (Thunderpuss Mix)
    3. I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)
    4. So Emotional
    5. All At Once
    6. Same Script, Different Cast (Jonathan Peters Mix, but either will do)
    7. Million Dollar Bill (Freemasons Mix)
    8. Could I Have This Kiss Forever
    9. Step By Step
    10.Love Is A Contact Sport

    1. I'm Your Baby Tonight (UK Version) - not necessarily her best or most iconic moment but it's my favourite
    2. It's Not Right But it's Okay (Thunderpuss Mix) - no words needed
    3. I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me) - first Whitney song I ever heard, at the age of 7. Fell in love with her
    4. My Name is NOT Susan - live version ELEGANZA
    5. So Emotional - pure euphoria
    6. I Learned From the Best - underrated
    7. Exhale (Shoop Shoop) - underrated
    8. Queen of The Night - cheesefest but fun
    9 I'm Every Woman - much better than that other cover on that album
    10. How Will I Know - colossal, undeniable... but overplayed

    So Emotional is great but it really is just a slightly lesser How Will I Know.

    I'm not really invested in Whitney enough to do a top 10 but her top 5 is 12/10 classics only.

    01 How Will I Know
    02 I Learned From The Best
    03 It's Not Right But It's Okay (Thunderpuss Remix)
    04 My Love Is Your Love
    05 I Wanna Dance With Somebody

    MAX TRAX!

    Whilst the Thunderpuss mix that y’all speak of is a triumph I do prefer the album/single version. It was an unexpected turn of sound for her. My Love Is Your Love is my favourite album of hers. I find her albums much patchier than the other big hitting divas of the era.
