* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: Houston's 1991 hit, "Miracle," is widely believed to be an anti-abortion song, although Houston herself denied it specifically referred to abortion.



* LyricalDissonance: Both her version and Music/DollyParton's of "I Will Always Love You" is not a silly love song or a I'm happy I found you song, it's a sad lost, break up song, yet try telling that to the many people who make it their wedding/relationship song.

Including many who requested it over the years as a Long Distance Dedication on [[Creator/CaseyKasem "American Top 40"]].

* ButNotTooBlack[=/=]PopCultureIsolation: Notably, her debut started being played only in white A/C radio stations while avoiding Urban Radio stations. Until that point, black artists either had to cross over.

* ButNotTooBlack[=/=]PopCultureIsolation: Notably, her debut started being played Her first major hit, "You Give Good Love," had been intended only in white A/C radio stations while avoiding to be a major R&B hit, and surprised Houston's camp with how strongly it crossed over to Pop and Adult Contemporary stations, which led Houston to begin super-serving the crossover audience with a heavy dose of pop ballads at the expense of her Urban Radio stations. Until that point, black artists either had following (who leveled the "Oreo" insult at her), particularly on her second album. Thus, her next album, ''I'm Your Baby Tonight'', was an attempt to cross over.re-establish herself as an R&B singer first and foremost, and it worked - at least until "I Will Always Love You."

** To a lesser extent, Music/CelineDion, although Celine has never been anything other than complimentary of Houston's talents and even stated Houston was an inspiration for her when she began to record in English.
