The Greatest Love Song of All Time

The Greatest Love of All

This is probably my all time favorite song since I first heard it by George Benson on his “Weekend in LA” album. Some critics contend that he sings the song better than Whitney Huston. I will say they are very different as are both the singers' voices. A person who commented on the above linked YouTube said it better than I can. He (or she) called it the “Greatest Love Song of all time.” BINGO!

I recommend listening to both versions (linked to this post and the previous one titled “Whitney”). Both are just an excuse to listen to the song again after all these years.
Oh, yeah, and listen carefully to the words.

like velvet…I am afraid that Whitney Houston didn't listen to the words, did she, poor thing.

I dunno, Whitney Houston was a shooting star and she flamed out. Is it better to just peter out I wonder?

No, I am not a fan of petering…well, maybe in some cases.- Ronnie
