    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.

    I thought Chain Reaction was a bit too campy for me but this Upside Down single was she looked sexy AF too

    I love how you're resurrecting these threads This was one of my favourite songs as a kid, before i could buy my own music even.
    It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
    But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is

    I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?
