Notes
  • A ^ "Hold Me" was originally released as a single from Teddy Pendergrass' album, Love Language, in the United States and some European countries such as Germany and the UK in 1984.[41][42] In the following year, the song was included on Houston's debut album and charted in the Netherlands and the UK in early 1986.
  • B ^ While "All at Once" was never released as the official single in the US except as a B-side of "Saving All My Love for You", the song was strategically selected as the lead single from her debut album in Benelux countries and Germany in early 1985, aiming for the adult-oriented market.[43] In Italy, the song was popular after Houston's performance for the song during 1987 Sanremo Music Festival, and then was released as the commercial vinyl single including "Hold Me" in that year.[44] In Japan, it was released as 3-inch snap pack single by BMG Victor on July 26, 1996 and peaked at number 42 at the Japanese Singles Chart in that year.[45][46]
  • C ^ In the UK, "Someone for Me (Remix)" was the first single from the Whitney Houston album, issued as a double A-side single with "Greatest Love of All" before the release of the album.[47]
  • D ^ "Thinking About You" was released as a 12-inch vinyl single featured its extended dance version in the US in October 1985, and also issued as a standard 45, but because it was only promoted to R&B radio, not pop radio, it never appeared on the Hot 100.[48][49][50]
  • E ^ "I Know Him So Well" was only released as a single in Australia, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain in late 1988.[51]
  • F ^ "Takin' a Chance", used as the theme song of Sanyo TV commercial, was released as a 3-inch CD single including "Love Is a Contact Sport" in Japan only on October 21, 1989. The single peaked at number 88 on the Japanese Singles chart.[46] The following year the song was also included on the Japanese edition of the I'm Your Baby Tonight album.[52]
  • G ^ "The Star Spangled Banner" was originally released as a commercial single on February 8, 1991 in the US. The single peaked at number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart at the time, and was certified Gold by the RIAA on April 11, 1991. After the 9/11 attacks, the version was re-issued and reached a new peak of number six on the Hot 100 chart. Also, it was certified Platinum by the RIAA on October 3, 2001.
  • H ^ "We Didn't Know" was commercially released as a cassette single only in April 1992 and also the promotional CD maxi-single.[53][54]
  • I ^ "Heartbreak Hotel" was released as the second or third single from My Love Is Your Love in Australia, France, North America in 1999, but as the third single from Whitney: The Greatest Hits in Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the UK between December 2000 and January 2001.
  • J ^ Both "Could I Have This Kiss Forever" and "Same Script, Different Cast" reached their peak positions on the Hot 100 with airplay points only. On descending the charts, the latter was commercially released as a 12-inch vinyl maxi-single while the former was not in the US.[55]
  • K ^ "Fine" was released as a promotional single for R&B radio only in the US. In Europe, the song was commercially issued as a CD maxi-single in November 2000.[56][57]
  • L ^ "Love That Man" was released as a commercial 12-inch vinyl maxi-single (double pack) only in the US on May 20, 2003.[58]
  • M ^ In Germany, "I Look to You" was released as a double A-side single with "Million Dollar Bill".[59]
  • N ^ "Stop the Madness" is the anti-drug anthem, produced Michael Stokes and written by Stokes, Tom Reid, Sharon Barnes and Lathan Armour, released as a 12-inch single featured its dance version by MCA Records in early 1986.[60]
  • O ^ "King Holiday" was released as a charity single in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, which was first celebrated as a national holiday in the United States on January 20, 1986. Houston contributed to the song as a part of all-star group, the King Dream Chorus and Holiday Crew.[61]
