Saturday 9: I Will Always Love You




1) The Bodyguard is the best-selling movie soundtrack ever and this is the song most often associated with Whitney Houston. Is it on your iPod/mp3 player?
No, it's not.  It was so overplayed when it was popular that I tend to cringe when I hear it now.

 2) In the movie, Rachel (Whitney) sings "I Will Always Love You" after she realizes she can never see Frank (Kevin Costner) again. What song reminds you of a past love?


3) Despite the movie's and the song's overwhelming popularity, Whitney Houston was awarded a Razzie Award as the worst actress of 1992. What's the most recent criticism you received?Someone on a Facebook page told me that I was being passive aggressive in a debate, because I gave a simple answer at first, then expanded on it in further comments.


4) On the bright side, share the last compliment you received.
My husband complimented my hair last night. 


5) In the 1980s, when Whitney first burst onto the scene, a trendy woman wore big hair, big bows and big shoulder pads. Can you think of anything you wore that was fashionable at the time, but looking back, makes you cringe? (An embarrassing photo to accompany your answer would be nice!)
Turquoise parachute pants....and thankfully there is no photographic evidence of this disgrace!


6) When this song was popular, cell phones were uncommon and Facebook was unheard of. Which has had a bigger impact on your life -- smart phones or social networking? 
Social networking....have never had a smart phone, and have no intention of ever having one.


7) Whitney's marriage to Bobby Brown left many people shaking their heads. Whitney and Bobby's daughter recently married the young man who was raised as her brother. Have you ever been in a relationship your friends/family didn't approve of?
Yep.....my first two marriages.


8) Whitney Houston's grave marker reads, "I Will Always Love You," so obviously her family is very proud of the success of this recording. How would you like to be remembered?
As a loving, caring person who always tried to help others.


9) Whitney was born in Newark, the largest city in New Jersey. It's a major air, rail and shipping hub, and it's in the Eastern Time zone. Have you ever been to Newark ... or any town in New Jersey?  

I have been in the airport in Newark several times, and I actually lived there for a couple of months in 1999.

  2. Parachute pants! I remember them! Can't say that I miss them, but I remember them. :)

  3. Parachute pants would be one of the many trends I dodged by being completely unfashionable and dorky as a kid. Silver lining to everything, no?

  4. OMG the parachute pants made me laugh. I love that Blake Shelton song, and every time I hear it, I think that I'm glad that I don't attribute it to anyone.
