With Angela Bassett's directorial debut for the Lifetime biopic 'Whitney' premiering this weekend, I decided to compile a list of Whitney Houston's Top 10 Greatest Songs. It was definitely difficult to narrow it down, of course, she had more than 10 greatest songs, but these are just some of my favorites.

1. "I Will Always Love You"

We all know "I Will Always Love You" from Whitney's acting debut in the film, "The Bodyguard." The song was actually originally written and recorded by Dolly Parton and was a hit on the country chart. Whitney Houston's version had hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

2. "Greatest Love Of All"

"Greatest Love Of All" might be known as one of Whitney's most inspirational hits.

3. "How Will I Know"

"How Will I Know" showed how Whitney had a fanbase that drew crowds from not only R&B, but also dance, pop, AND adult contemporary.

4. "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)"

This 1987 upbeat song won Whitney a Grammy award for "Best Female Pop Vocal Performance."

5. "Where Do Broken Hearts Go?"

It's hard to believe that Whitney almost didn't do this song! She initially thought there was no feeling or message behind the track, but Clive Davis convinced her to do it and boy did she bring it meaning!

6. "Didn't We Almost Have It All"

"Didn't We Almost Have It All" was not only Whitney's second hit single, but was an instant classic earning her the Grammy nomination for "Song Of The Year" in 1988.

7. "Saving All My Love For You"

This 1985 hit, won Whitney her first Grammy award for "Best Female Pop Vocal."

8. "I Have Nothing"

"I Have Nothing" was another one of the singles on the soundtrack for "The Bodyguard" and is a powerful love ballad focused on commitment.

9. "I'm Every Woman"

Whitney re-recorded Chaka Khan's hit, making it BIGGER and BETTER than the original.

10. "It's Not Right, But It's Okay"

"It's Not Right, But It's Okay" was the third single off of Whitney's fourth studio album, My Love Is Your Love.

Did any of you get to watch the "Whitney" biopic on Lifetime? There have been so many mixed reviews, hat did you think of it?
