The 40 Best Whitney Houston Songs

Some will remember Whitney Houston for her successes — millions of albums sold, a record seven straight No. 1 singles, the first female artist to debut on the charts at No. 1. Others will remember her for her troubles — her drug abuse, her rocky marriage to Bobby Brown. But we'll always remember her for her music, her one-of-a-kind, undeniable voice that turned mere songs into cultural benchmarks. Two years ago today, February 11, the world renown singer tragically died in an Beverly Hills hotel. In her honor, BET.com counts down her 40 best songs, each a landmark to her once-in-a-generation talent and spirit. — Alex Gale
