Song 43:365 is my version of Whitney Houston’s Saving All My Love for You. Written by songwriting duo Michael Masser and Gerry Goffin, it was originally recorded by Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. in 1978, but it wasn’t until 1985 when it appeared on Whitney Houston’s debut self-titled album that it became a hit.
Today’s song is Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing from the 1993 Bodyguard soundtrack. I was reminded about this song by a young girl with a big voice singing it on Britain’s Got Talent a couple of weeks ago, so I thought I’d add it to my 365 Songs collection. I hope you enjoy it.
This song must rank among the cheesiest songs I’ve played so far, and the reason I’m playing isn’t much better! I was staying at a Premier Inn on Sunday night before a meeting in East Lothian early on Monday morning, and as I sat eating my breakfast, this song came on, sung by Whitney Houston and Teddy Pendergrass. I’m sure you needed to know those details… Their recording was from 1984, but it actually featured on Silk Electric, the 1982 Diana Ross album, under the title In Your Arms.
