A friend just emailed me the news (I didn't have the TV on tonight).
I just hate stuff like this.
When you're only 48 years old, you're supposed to keep hangin' around.
Immediately, I was transported back to the nineteen eighties, and pop radio. I was a disciple of Top 40 radio in the eighties.
The news makes me want to cry. I am thinking, too much hard living, and her heart gave out. I don't know; nobody knows at this point.
I DO know that, in the 1980's, the one lone female voice that broke through was hers. Yes, I know there was Madonna. But if you think back with a clear head, you realize that Madonna had nothin' on Whitney.
Whitney was huge.
So, nothing profound tonight. Just some music videos from Whitney Houston.
One of my favorites:
Dolly....she probably never imagined it like this:
Rest in peace, Whitney. Just too soon.
Just too damn soon.
