Perhaps it seems to easy, too much of a cliché, to include this song. After all, it might apply to any couple in love that has been through some challenges (in other words, pretty much any couple in love).

Perhaps so, but it’s a great song. Written and performed first by Dolly Parton, many people became familiar with it because of the film, “The Bodyguard.” Joanna and I both liked the film, and probably not just because I may have once had a thing for Whitney Houston while she may have once had a thing for Kevin Costner. (After all, she’s the only person I know who actually considered “Waterworld” to be a good film.)

Houston, who also performed one of my three favorite versions of the National Anthem, knocks it out the park with this song. Lyrics here, with video below:
