Just heard Whitney Houston's version of "A Song For You" (on her new album) and it wasn't what I...eh...expected. It's alright to have a new insight into these old classic songs but a DANCE VERSION! Then again I could blame those Norwegians who have made that backing track for her...
I own Leon Russell's version of A Song for You on vinyl and I must say I really enjoy his rendition. I like his honesty and soul in his voice. His rendition of the song is the way he envisioned it as he wrote it. Must say, though, I do by far prefer Karen's reading of the song.
On Whitney Houston I feel she did no justice to the song.
