Posted by DjPaulT on 7th November 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

a-front

“Love Will Save the Day” was the fifth single by American singer-songwriter Whitney Houston from her second multi-platinum studio album Whitney. The single was released in July 1988 by Arista Records.

“Love Will Save the Day was produced by John “Jellybean” Benitez and features Roy Ayers on Vibraphone (Vibes).

At this time, Whitney Houston had achieved a record-breaking string of seven number-one hits, with four of those #1’s from her current album “Whitney”. “Love Will Save the Day” did not become Houston’s eighth consecutive number one, but continued her trend of hit singles by peaking in the US Top 10. The #9 peak on the Hot 100 was Houston’s lowest solo peak up to this time. The song also made the Top 10 without an accompanying music video.

Houston had stronger performances on the charts prior to this song but it did remain in the top 40 for 11 weeks, and reached #5 on the R&B Chart, and #1 on the Hot Club/Dance Play Tracks.

Internationally, the song mostly saw less success except in the United Kingdom, where it went Top 10 and Switzerland, where it went Top 20. It was a moderate hit in Germany, making 37; and was a minor hit in Australia, peaking at 77.

Whitney Houston – One Moment In Time (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 27th July 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“One Moment in Time” is an Emmy Award winning song written by Albert Hammond and John Bettis, produced by Narada Michael Walden and recorded by American singer Whitney Houston for the 1988 Summer Olympics and the 1988 Summer Paralympics held in Seoul, South Korea.

The song’s melody was inspired by the timeless figure of Elvis Presley, with Hammond imagining it as being sung by Presley at the opening of the Olympics. It appeared on the album 1988 Summer Olympics Album: One Moment in Time, produced in conjunction with NBC Sports’ coverage of the Seoul games and which, in addition to Whitney Houston who sang it live at the main ceremony, also featured artists such as: The Four Tops, The Bee Gees, Eric Carmen, Taylor Dayne and the film composer John Williams. The track is an anthem for believing in yourself against all odds as Houston asks for “One moment in time/when I’m racing with destiny/Then, in that one moment of time, I will feel eternity”.

The video for the song does not show Houston performing the song but is a basic collage of clips from previous Olympic ceremonies. It opens with footage of Olympic games from 1924 and 1964 until the lighting of the cauldron from the 1988 games is shown which fades from black and white to color. As the song plays throughout, footage from the games in 1988 and 1984 are shown. When the chorus is sung for the last time, midway through it, scenes of the awarding from 1984 and 1988 are shown. The song video ends with the 1988 Olympic Cauldron blazing.

“One Moment in Time” was released by Arista Records in August 1988 as the first single from The 1988 Summer Olympics Album: One Moment in Time, the soundtrack to the Games in Seoul, South Korea. The song debuted at number 57 on the Billboard Hot 100, the issue dated September 10, 1988. Nine weeks later, it peaked at number five on the chart, the issue date of November 12, 1988, becoming Houston’s tenth top 10 hit on the Hot 100, and spent 17 weeks on the chart. It also debuted on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (formerly “Hot Black Singles”) at number 78, the issue dated September 17, 1988, and six weeks later reached a peak of 22, her lowest position on the R&B chart at the time. On the issue date of November 5, 1988, the single peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary chart, making it her seventh number-one single on the chart, and stayed on the top for two weeks. It ranked number 89 on the Billboard Hot 100 Year-End chart of 1988.

Worldwide, it was a big hit. In the United Kingdom, the song entered the UK Singles Chart at number 24, the week ending date of September 24, 1988, and within four weeks of its release reached the top position, a peak it maintained for two weeks, becoming Houston’s third UK number-one single.

This UK 12″ contains a super rare mix of “Love Will Save the Day”! This mix is an early version of the slightly easier to find Jellybean & Morales Mix, but this contains some vocal adlibs that never appeared in any other version of the song. And this 12″ is the only release it ever appeared on.

Whitney Houston – How Will I Know (German 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 28th February 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

“How Will I Know” is a song recorded by American recording artist Whitney Houston for her debut album, entitled Whitney Houston, which was released in February 1985. It was released by Arista Records in November that year, as the album’s third single. Composed by George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam, the song was originally intended for Janet Jackson, but she passed on it. Houston then recorded the song with altered lyrics and production from Narada Michael Walden. An up-tempo dance song, the lyrics speak about the protagonist trying to discern if a boy she likes will ever like her back.

“How Will I Know” received mainly positive reviews. The song became Houston’s second number one single on the United States Billboard Hot 100. It spent two weeks atop the chart and also became Houston’s first chart topper on the Canadian RPM Singles Chart. In other regions, the song was successful, reaching the top 10 in in Sweden, Norway, and United Kingdom and the top 20 in the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Switzerland.

Special note about this 12″: The mixes contained on this 12″ were only released on European editions of the single and were not available in the US. The US version contains completely alternate mixes.

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE

Whitney Houston 1963 – 2012

In loving rememberance of a beutiful voice taken from us too soon. My thouhgts and prayers go out to Whitney’s family and friends and the millions of people that have been touched by her legendary talent. Many of us grew up with Whitney’s music and I am sure each one of us has that one special song that holds a wonderful memory. Thank you Whitney for the memories. You will be missed.

I originally released this custom compilation on September 11, 2009 on the Blogger site. I thought it would be nice to bring it back as a special tribute to Whitney. I only have it available in mp3 format because that is what I originally released it in.

These tracks are taken from many areas of Whitney’s career, also included is a fantastic career retrospective megamix that runs just under 20 minutes long.
