Poor Whitney, my heart goes out to such a troubled soul. Such a beautiful light, extinguished. Peace, love and light to her.

Whitney Houston is the gold standard of singing, in my opinion. She’s the greatest singer of all time, in my opinion. May she rest in Heaven.

I just wonder at what point of her listening to that the first time did it dawn on her..."She just made me a lot of money!" She's joked about it over the years. "They can give Whitney the credit, just send me the check," and I know she sincerely respects Whitney's version, but she had to at least be thinking, this is going to be a hit.

This is why Dolly Parton is the GOAT. She is the ultimate songwriter. This, and her acknowledgment of The White Stripes' version of Jolene, as one of her favorites tells you that she understands that songwriting is telling a story, in as many ways as possible.

Must be something unique and special to be driving home from work, listening to the radio and then literally hear your bank account balance explode into heights you could previously not even imagine. Dolly on Withneys song: "When I sang that song, I was able to bring money to the bank. When Withney sang my song, I was able to buy the bank". And that's not the only thing she's been brutally honest about. As seen in these interviews, her cosmetic alterations are something she's very open about. She's brutally honest about her fake nails, fake hair, fake boobs, fake everything and most of all, brutally honest these things are what helped her get rich.

There are legends who are looked up by other singers. But you know you're in a different league when you're a legend looked up by other legends. Whitney Houston was that woman. Once in 100 years. 👑

I'm 54. I remember my dad listening to her when I was a kid, little kid... there's this song, Me and Little Andy...💔💔 ... I used to cry as a kid... I haven't been able to listen to it since because I know I am going to cry 😂😂😂 I love this woman 🤩 I love her music. My parents drove us from Michigan to go to Dollywood, back in the 80's❤️❤️❤️ So funny and smart... she could sing for a commercial and I would be GLUED ❤️❤️❤️

Dolly's was good but Whitney's version. OMG!! It's like she made it her own and it was. I didn't even know it was a cover. Wow. Just like Mariah Carey. I didn't know she did covers. She makes it her own. OMG!! That's what you call true talents.

Dolly's a national treasure. A genuinely kind and humble person not full of herself like so many other famous people . Or so insecure of herself that she'd underplay the fact that Houston made that song a huge hit and anthem to being in love..... She is the exact opposite of the president we have now.......

Linda Ronstadt covered this song in 1975, on her album Prisoner in Disguise. Read somewhere that Kevin Costner owned the album, and suggested the song for the end of the Bodyguard movie, when the first song choice fell through. Whether that is true or not, Linda's version is stellar, of course. The album liner notes included handwritten lyrics by the songwriters, and I remember thinking that Dolly's handwriting looked so pretty and romantic, and suited her image perfectly.

Iconic yes. But not many people were aware of it when it came out. Whitney's version was #1 for 14 consecutive weeks, which was a new record at that time, which ensured, more people would hear it.

This African-American male here🤚 loves the hell out of Dolly Parton. She's always been pure class all the way from day one. I fell in love with her original version because the lyrics were phenomenal but Whitney's version sent the song through the stratosphere. Dolly is a true iconic legend. If You Ain't Got Love is my favorite song by her though💛💗💛

She's also said that while she was heart-broken that Elvis never recorded it (because she would have had to give up ownership of the song to him), she was so glad that Whitney did it because in her words Whitney took it to a whole new level and she felt finally "justified" (her word) by Whitney's version. That song was written for Porter Wagoner who gave Dolly her break and helped her develop her musical abilities and stage presence. She wanted to go solo, he was a little bitter by that and the song was her way of saying "Thank you" for being her mentor, her teacher and guide. She was shocked as anybody at the stellar popularity of the song ala Whitney and was so grateful to her. Dolly had nothing but good things to say about Whitney as it put even more cash in her pockets and confirmed her business accumen.

Dolly's IWALY is plaintive and pleading. Whitney's IWALY is exalted and triumphant. Very few songs are so well written they work in ways that are such polar opposites. I miss Ms Whitney. Hugs to Ms Dolly.
