Probably the best song she has ever recorded. A US #1 in September 1980.

Great song, but I'd say my favorite one is Theme From Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)

^^^^ Missing You. That's one song that can get me crying. Reminds me of love ones I lost. Plus the instrumental is ahead of its time imo lol... I also love the intro to "Ain't No Mountain". I love when she talks as well.

Yes it was but now she sings it for Michael as well. The Lyrics fit him too. I think of Whitney when I hear it...

That whole 1980 album was IMO her finest moment as a solo artist. Nile Rodgers as a producer really made her step her game up and the whole album is great.

She has this ultra soothing baby voice that is totally inescapable...Even "My Old Piano" is a personal favorite

"Chain Reaction" is fantastic as well, I also love the Bee Gees sound.
