YMMV: Whitney Houston
  • Covered Up:
    • "I Will Always Love You" originally done by Dolly Parton.
    • Also, "Greatest Love of All," originally by George Benson.
    • As well as "All the Man I Need", originally by Sister Sledge.
    • "I'm Every Woman," originally by Chaka Khan.
  • Ear Worm: "I Wanna Dance With Somebody", "When You Believe", "I'm Every Woman".
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: All the jokes relating to her drug use and her relationship with Bobby Brown aren't really funny anymore, considering...well...
    • Also her song "I Will Always Love You" is particularly sad because all of the lyrics seem to relate to her dying, like "So good-bye/Please don't cry /We both know I'm not what you need". The whole song is about her having to leave for an unknown reason.
    • Epic Movie had a running gag about her and her relationship with Bobby, so much harder to watch now.
    • In her 'Nothing But Love' World Tour in 2010, she paid tribute to one Michael Jackson, even singing excerpts of "Wanna be Starting Something" and "The Way You Make Me Feel". Two years later and she very much followed in his footsteps.
  • Signature Songs: "I Will Always Love You", "Saving All My Love for You", "Greatest Love of All". Granted that two of those songs are covers, but still.
