21. "All at Once"

"All at Once," from Whitney's 1985 debut, was only released as a single overseas, but it's still a key moment in her career, one of her first massive, pop-diva ballads, paving roads for Mariah, Celine and others to drive down. The slow start, the big finish, the key modulation at the end, the impossible high notes — all the ingredients are there.
