Re: Whitney Houston: OFFICIAL SONG W/FULL PRODUCTION!!!!

People are being waaaaaay too harsh. It's a good song. It's a little cheesy, but all Diane Warren songs are. Her vocals are good, all things considered. Whitney is never going to sing like she did during the Bodyguard days again, so people just need to get over that.

I refuse to get into this debate with you, obviously you are clueless with regards music.

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Re: Whitney Houston: OFFICIAL SONG W/FULL PRODUCTION!!!!

!?! Reminiscent of one those cliched "inspiring" songs written for the American Idol finale, except much worse. Inexistent melodic contours, forgettable chord progression, pedestrian beat. A 101 in the How-Not-To of pop songwriting.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Awww, Mimi's lamb is in denial It's hard to debate with a blind fan so I'm glad you aren't going to get into this debate. I myself am a huge Mariah fan. Hell I was the poster who started the threads for her two last albums and thought they were both really good. I actually like E=MC2. But I can tell that her voice isn't nowhere near as good as it was and her singing live (when she actually does sing live and not mime) is really bad.
=============================

As for this remix, I don't know much about dance music but I have to say that this sounds much better than the original. Whitney's current voice fits this sound more imo. I actually like it!

They are seriously considering that song as the first single?!!? Sorry but her comeback is offically DEAD.

Obsessed by Mariah is just has better production. The lyrics in Obsessed are easier to make out and dare I say fun?

When did Whitney become so damn boring?

Mariah's album is out August 25th! A week before Whitney's. I'm buying Mariah's and I am waiting to see if Whitney's is even worth buying.

Boring!? OK... not really sure how to respond to that criticism....lol Did you listen to the words? It's a personal song about being lost, being close to giving up and finding the strength to make it through.

Not sure why you want to make this a Mariah vs. Whitney thing. I personally love both and will support both- just not sure why you felt the need to bring up "Obsessed" and compare them. They have absolutely nothing in common what so ever..lol

Here are the "boring" lyrics: (that you can't make out... )
Lost touch with my soul
I had no where to turn
I had no where to go
Lost sight of my dream,
Thought it would be the end of me
I thought I’d never make it through
I had no hope to hold on to,
I thought I would break

I didn’t know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength

Found hope in my heart,
I found the light to life
My way out of the dark
Found all that I need
Here inside of me
I thought I’d never find my way
I thought I’d never lift that weight
I thought I would break

I didn’t know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength

There were so many times I
Wondered how I’d get through the night I
Thought took all I could take

I didn’t know my own strength
And I crashed down, and I tumbled
But I did not crumble
I got through all the pain
I didn’t know my own strength
Survived my darkest hour
My faith kept me alive
I picked myself back up
Hold my head up high
I was not built to break
I didn’t know my own strength

Those lyrics are crap. Full of every cliche you can find of an "inspirational song". Just because they're about a "serious topic" doesn't make them good. It's Diane Warren though no? So that's not surprising.

Whitney's song will flop on the charts faster than you can say CRACK.

You're nasty, bitter, and dare I say, a tad bit threatened.

I love Mariah Carey and want her to do well, but some of you lambs are a hot mess. You're one of the worst, but I wont keep you from your job- so keep hating cuz that's all a hater can do at the end of the day. Seriously though, "GO AWAY". This diva feud is sooo beyond ridiculous and so are you.

You're the one who claimed that Obsessed, "would rule charts and be played non-stop on the radio" so we all see firsthand how clairvoyant you really are...

Thankfully the fans will have their say- and not you. I think you're in for a surprise this time around (so you better get your excuses ready).

Love the remix.

Sounds better that the original, much like "It's not right, but it's okay"
