Whitney Houston – “All the Man That I Need” – (1990)

Why does this song have a 1980s feel? Because it was originally recorded in 1982 by Linda Clifford. Whitney covered it for her 1990 album I’m Your Baby Tonight. This was a #1 for Ms. Houston – the 4th biggest of her career, which is weird because it’s nowhere near her 4th best song. In fact, if you told me I had to karaoke this song without a prompter, I would be lost. I probably couldn’t even produce the melody on command. This one’s just lost in the shuffle of late-80s/early-90s love songs.
