Re: Whitney Houston: Million Dollar Bill- BRAND NEW SONG!!! (see first post)

Like it a lot. Much better than the other two tracks I've heard so far. Tend to see it more as a great album track then something to be released. I don't know what I feel about it as a single, seems too laidback old-school R&B to be current - and isn't that a euphemism for dated? It has a similar vibe to Teenage Love Affair, perhaps unsurprisingly, and will probably chart similarly.

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.
