Radio XLV, side B, track 5: “So Emotional” by Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston - So EmotionalOh, Whitney Houston, what a coincidence, I also get so emotional when I think of YOU.  One of my Christmas presents this year was a CD/DVD combo of some of your greatest live performances, which my wife and I listened to on our drive home from our annual Christmas trip to New Orleans.  It’s not right how amazing of a singer you were.  Actually, it’s all kinds of right.  It just makes me so sad every time I hear your music because of how much we missed out on, not only because we lost you too soon but because there was a big gap there where you were struggling with stuff that kept you away from making the amazing music that you did.

I don’t believe in the afterlife much, Whitney Houston, but this is one of those times that I really want to believe.  I want to believe that there’s a kind of Mount Olympus specifically for fallen pop gods and goddesses, and if the rest of us are lucky, after we go, we end up living at the foot of that mountain, and we get to spend the rest of eternity listening to them sing to us from on high.  I’m not generally real big on eternity, Whitney Houston, but if it meant listening to your voice echoing throughout the land, I’m totally on board.

“So Emotional”
