The late Whitney Houston was known for a powerful and soulful voice. With such talent, she became one of the most popular female artists ever. Her songs were primarily about love and even heartbreaks. Here are the memorable lines in her songs from 1980s. It includes songs not originally hers because such songs became more popular when she sang it.
Saving All My Love for You
” You’ve got your family and they need you there
Though I’ve tried to resist being last on your list”
The lady is in love with a man who has a family. It seems the lady is just a mistress. But the lady is still giving her love for the commited man. Hhmmm, sounds like infidelity is going on in this song.
How Will I Know?
” How will I know if he’s thinking of me
I try to phone but I’m too shy”
The lady likes the guy so much but she can’t say directly to him if he likes him too.
The Greatest Love of All
” Learning to love yourself
It is the greatest love of all”
You can succeed if you will love yourself, which means being yourself and not everybody else. This song was one of the biggest ballads of ’80s
I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)
” Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
With somebody who loves me”
It is very clear in the lyrics that she wants to dance with somebody who loves her. So it means she will not dance with just anybody else. This song was Whitney’s biggest hit in the 1980s.
Didn’t We Almost Have it All
“Didn’t we almost have it all
When love was all we had worth giving?”
It sounds like love is just so perfect like it will never end but it eventually failed. This is one of the best heartbreak songs of 1980s.
” I’ve been hearing your heartbeat inside of me
I keep your photo right beside my bed”
The girl likes this certain guy and she’s dreaming and fantasizing with that guy.
Where Do Broken Hearts Go?
“Since that cold November day…
We said we needed space
But all we found was an empty place”
The girl and the guy took their time off away from each other, but led to separation. Still they care for each other.
One Moment in Time
” You’re a winner for a lifetime
If you seize that one moment in time
Make it shine”
It is inspiring everyone to reach their dreams. In the end, you will reach your dreams and shine all over.
