Givin' Up

On Blast
Givin’ Up by Jennifer Holliday is one of those songs that tears at the sheer curtains of my soul. What melodramatic love ballad still evokes a good candle burning with a glass of wine for you every now and then?

Keep passin’ the open windows…

anything of donny hathaway's ballads. "A Song For You", "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know", "Misty", "We're Still Friends", "For All We Know"...

Tamia "Officially Missing You

Mary J. & K-Ci "I Don't Wanna Do Anything", "Your Child", "The Love I Never Had"

Blu Cantrell "I'll Find a Way"

Gladys "Neither One of Us"

Kelly Price "It's Gonna Rain"

I could go on and on...

But I will always always always love love love the incomparable Whitney Houston on "I Have Nothing". I could listen to that song everyday for the rest of my life.

I second the Whitney Houston opinion...only I could listen to the live version of "didnt we almost have it all", the one where she is wearing the brown leather bomber jacket. PERFECTION.

Phil Collins "Separate Lives"

Van Morrison "Into the Mystic"

Frank Sinatra "I've Got You Under my Skin"

The Beatles "Let It Be"

For me it would have to be, *I've Learned To Respect The Power of Love (either version: Angela Winbush or Stephanie Mills) - thought I'm partial to Stephanie.
The lyrics, music, it sets the tone and the song hits home!

*Come To My Window - Melissa Etheridge
*Because You Loved Me - Celine Dion
*Forever Came Today - The Supremes
*You - Jesse Powell
*If Only You Knew - Patti LaBelle
*Adore - Prince
*Dream In Color - Regina Belle
*Could It Be I'm Falling In Love - The Spinners
*Sexy Love - NeYo
*True Love - Faith Evans
