I Will Always Love You was written by Dolly Parton in 1967 after a devasting break-up. She released more than one performance of this song; they hit on both country and pop charts. Whitney Houston’s version made it even more popular.
I have a soft spot in my heart for it because I sang it at the TOP of my lungs to my colicky daughter trying to compete with her screaming. It made me laugh to try to match Whitney’s high notes, and, I needed that.
Of course it is perfect for the love story in Nine as heartbreaking as it is. Here is hoping the end of the drama will have a different theme. Any suggestions?
I Will Always Love You
If I should stay
I would only be in your way
So I’ll go but I know
I’ll think of you every step of the way
And I… will always love you, ooh
I will always love you
My darling you
That is all I’m taking with me
Please don’t cry
We both know I’m not what you, you need
And I…Will always love you
I…Will always love you You, ooh
