    #3 Where do Broken Hearts Go
    #4 The Greatest Love of All

    Please share.

    Great minds think alike. :)

    I watched the Grammy performance again and I think it really hit me that she is gone. I couldn't help but tear up. I fell in love with that song during the Olympics. I remember the gymnasts doing a routine to it at the end of the competition. Great memories.

    I also love Whitney's more recent, and maybe her last official single, Million Dollar Bill. It was infectious pop/disco fun. It was too bad it never went anywhere on radio, maybe it did on other formats but not Pop. I can't help but jam to it.

    Wow - I didn't even realize she passed until I opened this thread and then did a search on Google. Very sad! So talented...and self-destructive.

    I love the sheer power of One Moment In Time, but a couple of others I love is "My Love is Your Love" (slowed down version), "If You Say My Eyes are Beautiful" and just about any Christmas Carol she ever did.

    Just about any song she ever did...but I'm especially fond of "I Will Always Love You" -- as much for the loss in the lyrics, but made so much more impactful by the that voice...

    If I have to choose only one: "One Moment In Time".
    The Grammy performance was wonderful.

    It's a toss up between "The Greatest Love of All" and "One Moment In Time".

    I like all her ballads and these songs were the ones that showcased her singing prowess but I'm not big on mushy ballads. Me and my friends love singing "Saving All My Love" everytime we get the chance at karaoke.

    I love, love her version of For The Love of You..Listening to it right now, Oh Whitney :(.

    I'm sorry, I forgot to add, "You Give Good Love" is way up there as one of my very fave WH song, RIP Whitney....

    Her voice was one of the best. I'm not a big fan of her songs though. It's not my kind of music. One Moment In Time is probably the one I like the most.

    Rest In Peace. :(
