I Will Always Love You (Soundtrack from The Bodyguard)
 As they say, one thing leads to another. From Casablanca to Somewhere Over the Rainbow to I Will Always Love You. All classics and all sung by amazing talented artists.      I first heard the song not by its original artist but by Whitney Houston while watching her movie Bodyguard co-starring the charming Kevin Costner. It's made famous by Houston as well and it's one of the best selling singles of all time! There are a great many good songs in the movie …

About this song

Wiki

In 1992, singer Whitney Houston recorded the song I Will Always Love You for the soundtrack to The Bodyguard, her film debut. Houston was originally to record Jimmy Ruffin's "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted" as the lead single from The Bodyguard. However, when it was discovered the song was to be used for Fried Green Tomatoes, Houston requested a different song and her co-star Kevin Costner brought her Linda Ronstadt's 1975 version of "I Will Always Love You" from her album Prisoner in Disguise. Houston re-arranged the song as a soul ballad. Her record company did not feel a song with an a cappella introduction would be as successful; however, Houston and Costner insisted to maintain an a cappella intro.

Houston's version was a massive worldwide success, selling over 15 million copies worldwide. It became a regular on countdown lists: appearing at number 8 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the Past 25 Years; number 4 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s and number 1 on VH1's 100 Greatest Love Songs. The song also lists at number 68 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of all time.
