No Cure[edit]

I removed this:

This article is not actually about the line from The Cure song Love Song.

...because it makes no sense to disambiguate. why WOULD there be an article about the line "I will always love uou" from a song by The Cure? --FuriousFreddy 02:44, 29 May 2005 (UTC)

POV[edit]

I removed an edit a few minutes ago by 194.83.191.3 (talk · contribs) because it was POV- "also in many aspects the best performance of this song..." etc. Author has been blocked before, so. Just in case anybody was interested.

Release date for Vince Gill duet version[edit]

Is there a release date available for Dolly's duet version with Vince Gill? If so, even if it's just a month and year, it should be included in the table. That version is significant in that it became the third time that Dolly had a hit version with the same song (albeit a modest hit this time around). [[Briguy52748 14:09, 21 December 2006 (UTC)]]

Movie Version[edit]

There is a version played in the bar scene in the movie The Bodyguard. Does anyone know who sang that version? It was a man singing probably a country star.

It was sung by John Doe. You can listen to the version in Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxDNDjFdv6k. This version should be mentioned in the article, because it's interesting and it took me time to find it. Hnun (talk) 14:46, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Christmas #1[edit]

I removed the sentence "Whitney Houston is the only solo artist to hold the coveted Christmas number-one single in the UK with this song" because it implies that either (a) no other solo artist has had a #1 single in the UK at Christmas, which isn't true; or (b) a duo or group has had a #1 single at Christmas in the UK with "I Will Always Love You", which isn't true; or (c) it's usual for the same song to have been a #1 single at Christmas in the UK in renditions by several different artists, which is misleading at best. See List of Christmas number one singles. --Metropolitan90 16:27, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Whitney Houston- I Will Always Love You.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Whitney Houston- I Will Always Love You.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Use in Television, Film and Radio Section[edit]

does anyone have any objections to me adding that Syesha Mercado sang a cover of this song on the Season 7 of American Idol? Jjkayes (talk) 12:46, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Connie Talbot[edit]

in 2009 Connie Talbot released this as a single and took it to U.S.#4. Does this deserve further mention over and above her album release? Pga1965 (talk) 00:03, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

I responded on my talk page because you also posted there and I noticed it there first. — John Cardinal (talk) 00:48, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

Sample change[edit]

I actually think spending all 26 seconds of the sample on a section with her vocals is less helpful. I prefer the May 2011 sample to the February 2012 sample at File:I Will Always Love You Whitney.ogg.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 05:24, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

No problem, you can revert it. :) - Saulo Talk to Me 14:49, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm not understanding, Tony. You want the sample longer or shorter? Flyer22 (talk) 21:31, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Look at the file history and play the two different versions. We are debating about 2 different 26 second samples. One has Houston vocals for 26 seconds and the other for 22 with a sax solo for the rest.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 21:48, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Thanks for explaining. I understand why you reverted to the prior version; it's the one that we hear when we listen to the original Houston version of the song or when watching its musical video. Thus...it's also the version we keep hearing in the news, and, like you stated in your revert, is described in the text in the article. Flyer22 (talk) 23:24, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Coming back to state that I also see why Sauloviegas uploaded the newer version, since we are trying to provide a sample that best demonstrates Whitney's voice in the Voice section of the article and Sauloviegas's version, as stated in the edit summary, showcases Whitney's vocals more so. Flyer22 (talk) 23:30, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
I am not a music expert in terms of technique, but the original sample had 22 seconds of Whitney doing musical magic with the lyrics and 4 seconds of completely different complementary musical stuff that was also fabulous about the song. The 2nd version had the stuff that the original had and a little more of Whitney's magic, but none of the complementary musical stuff. If there is a particular notable vocal technique that is omitted by the sample change we can discuss that here.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 23:57, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Jennifer Hudson version[edit]

Is the Hudson version being released as a single? If not formally released, is it available for digital download?--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 15:01, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

I do not believe so. I believe she performed it simply for the Grammys. MusicFreak7676 TALK! 21:49, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

"On February 12, 2012 Hudson performed the song as a tribute during the 54th Grammy Awards, the day after Houston's death alongide images of musicians who had died in 2011 in 2012 including Amy Winehouse and Etta James. " In fact no image of Etta James was displayed during the In Memoriam part of the Grammys. The omission was controversial. (Lah001 (talk) 15:00, 19 February 2012 (UTC))

Whitney Houston's Legacy[edit]

i have found this highly and regarded sources which claim that Whitney Houston version is the best selling single by a female artist of all time... and i think please include to the article properly... thank you.

http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1679039/whitney-houston-musical-legacy.jhtml. 39.209.192.194 (talk) 09:58, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Removal of appearances section[edit]

I removed this section as it impedes navigation of the page and provides no real information. It says that it has made "a number of appearances in media and television". This sentence is redundant because elsewhere in the article, it mentions already "appearances" this song has made in both media and television and there is more than one instance of these appearances (satisfying the vagueness of "a number").

I still think a section like this could maybe be used if it had more substance.. Here's several things I'm curious about in regards to this song that may or may not be fruitful to look into:

1) Mention of how the Whitney Houston's cover is used in parody.. It seems that in most parodies, the drum-hit is used for suspense and the following vocal part will feature either exaggerated drama, such as a character crying, and/or ironic juxtaposition, such as the song being dubbed into the voice of a male character. I haven't looked into it, but I feel its come up enough that it must've been talked about somewhere, at least in passing. Maybe not everything I've just said, but some of it... 2) Examples of where the song has been mentioned, or a clip of it used. Would have to be careful not to turn it into a list and also tie all the examples together in some way. Perhaps followed or preceded by 3 3) Where, and for what purpose, is the song used outside of the films already mentioned. Granted, this may fall into some NPOV issues that I don't fully understand.

I hope that made sense.. I have a knack for saying things that don't make any sense... Any way, if none of this can be made to work in such a section, I see no reason for a section or a sentence like that to exist. Repku (talk) 03:18, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Tammy Wynette's memorial service[edit]

I think we should include the fact that Dolly Parton also sang the chorus of this song at Tammy Wynette's memorial service. -- 134.241.28.252 (talk) 00:44, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
