1. "I Will Always Love You"

Whitney Houston's most iconic performance, "I Will Always Love You" is quite simply one of the biggest and boldest moments in American pop-music history. From the delicate opening to the massive climax — the power note of power notes — Whitney is flawless. The song, a cover of a 1974 Dolly Parton single, launched the soundtrack to the 1992 film The Bodyguard to 17 million sales and made it the first album to push a million units in a week. No matter how or why Whitney left us, and no matter how she spent the last years of her too-brief time with us, we'll always remember her like this: singing of joy and pain, love and heartbreak, triumph and failure, like no one else.
