"I'll Never Fall In Love Again" is a popular song by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Originally written for the 1968 musical Promises, Promises, it soon became one of Bacharach and David's most enduring songs. It was nominated for Song of the Year in the 1969 Grammy awards. A version with studio singers was released as a single under Burt Bacharach's name in 1969, and achieved a low chart position. The song's narrator ruminates on the various troubles that falling in love brings — including "enough germs to catch pneumonia" as the result of a kiss — and declares that (at least until tomorrow) he'll "never fall in love again." The line about pneumonia was inspired by the fact that Burt had just recovered from pneumonia. "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" became a hit for Bobbie Gentry when it reached number one on the UK Singles Chart for a single week in October 1969. In January 1970, it became a number six hit on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and a number-one hit on the Easy Listening chart for Dionne Warwick. Warwick's version, arranged and produced by Burt Bacharach and recorded in 1969, also reached number three on the Canadian Chart and crossed over into the Top 20 R&B Chart and became an international million seller. Warwick's album of the same name containing the single won a 1971 Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Performance-Female. Ella Fitzgerald's version became a minor hit in September 1969 and charted briefly. It was also the best-charting single in a cover version for Scottish band Deacon Blue, peaking at number two in the UK Singles Chart.


"I Have Nothing" is a song by American singer Whitney Houston and released as the third single from The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album on February 20, 1993 by Arista Records. The song was written by David Foster and Linda Thompson, and produced by Foster. The song is a richly orchestrated power ballad about deep love and commitment to one's lover. As of most of Houston's material, the song has been an extremely popular choice on the reality television series around the world, in particular, American Idol, where it became one of the most performed songs with six times since 2003. "I Have Nothing" was nominated for Best Original Song at the 65th Annual Academy Awards on March 29, 1993. David Foster and Linda Thompson were nominated for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media for the song at the 36th Annual Grammy Awards on March 1, 1994. The song was also nominated for Best R&B Single, Female but lost to Toni Braxton's "Breathe Again" at the 8th Annual Soul Train Music Awards on March 15, 1994. Foster and Thompson received the award for Most-performed Song from a Film for the song at the 10th BMI Film & Television Awards on May 17, 1994.


In 1992, singer Whitney Houston recorded the song 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 and producer David Foster 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 on retaining the a cappella intro. The tenor saxophone solo was played by Kirk Whalum. Whitney Houston's recording is not the only version of the song featured in the movie. In a scene where she dances with Kevin Costner, a version by John Doe can be heard playing on a jukebox. Houston's version was a massive worldwide success, selling over 12 million copies worldwide. It became a regular on countdown lists: appearing at number eight on VH1's "100 Greatest Songs of the Past 25 Years"; number four on VH1's "100 Greatest Songs of the 90s" and number one on VH1's "100 Greatest Love Songs." The song also lists at number sixty-eight on Billboard's "Greatest Songs of All Time."

Introduced on the 1968 RIAA Certified Gold album Dionne Warwick in Valley of the Dolls, "Do You Know the Way to San Jose" was issued as the follow-up single to the double-sided hit "(Theme from) Valley of the Dolls"/ "I Say a Little Prayer" in April 1968 and became Warwick's third consecutive Top Ten song, punctuating the most successful period of Warwick's recording career.

The single reached #9 on the US Hot 100 (becoming her 13th Top Ten hit), #2 on the R&B Chart, and #4 on the Adult Contemporary Chart. "Miracle" entered The Billboard Hot 100 at sixty-three, and stayed on the chart for fourteen weeks.

Roof Leaks

They said that roof leaks should be treated as an emergency as it may cause havoc into your house. If you see weird looking stain in your ceiling then you should doubt now that there must be a roof leek that has to be fixed immediately. Well, the first thing that you have to do is to trace and determine where exactly the leek is occurring. After that determine what exactly causing the leek. If you are using tiled roof, then it is kinda easy because you just have to replace the shingles. Same thing goes with the metal roof because you just have to seal it with epoxy clay. But if the damage have gone so far, affecting the interior part of the ceiling, then i suggest that you let the expert fix the job. You can actually hire something like Roofing Portland services. The roofers from that company is well trained no matter what kind of roof you have and they can sure fix the problem in no time.
Always remember that a simple roof leak can lead to a major roofing issues and ignoring them is not a good thing. Perform routine roof repairs every year is a wise action. In this way it will save you money if you do a roof repair if damage occurs, let alone the damage was pretty severe. The safety of your family is in risk here so better fix it now than regret it later.

Car Reflects Owner's Personality

Our car is like our house, we try to make it more appealing by adding more color into it. In fact, both of them served as an investment and something to be treasured and so they both deserve to be treated special. They said that the appearance of your house reflects the personality of the house owner. Same thing goes with your car. Have you ever imagine a punky man to make use of a pink-colored car with flower designs all over it? Or how about a girly woman to use a heavy-metal inspired abstract designed auto?
See? A car really reflects the owner's personality. It will show how organized or how messy a car owner is. Some of you might be contented on having a simple and plain design for your car but others want it to be more personalized by bringing their car to a Car painting shop. But of course, choosing the right Car Painting shop is important to be able to have a satisfying result. Better look for something like that well trusted Car Painting Portland in Oregon as they are known for providing high quality service.
I guess if you want to make your car more eye-catching, then why don't you try changing its body coat into something colorful.

"The Windows of the World" is the title of a song written by Burt Bacharach (music) and Hal David (lyrics) which was a hit single for Dionne Warwick in 1967. "The Windows of the World" represented a thematic departure for Warwick who had built her career as a romantic balladeer and had passed on the chance to introduce "What the World Needs Now is Love" (although her stated objection to the last-named was not its theme but rather that it sounded "too country"). Released in July 1967, "The Windows of the World" was not one of Warwick's biggest hits reaching #32 on the Billboard Hot 100 (#27 R&B/ #32 Easy Listening). However Warwick stated in 2002 that "The Windows of the World" was her favorite of all of her singles. Warwick's September 1967 album release featured "The Windows of The World" as its title cut (see The Windows of the World). The album cut "I Say a Little Prayer" was released that October as a single and proved to be the track which would re-establish Dionne Warwick as a Top Ten hitmaker.Dionne Warwick recorded an Italian language version of "The Windows of the World" as "La Vita Come Va" ([the] life as it should be).


"One Moment in Time" is an Emmy Award winning song written by Albert Hammond and John Bettis, 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 sang 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".Worldwide, it was a big hit. In the United Kingdom, the song entered the UK Singles Chart at number twenty-four, the week ending date of September 24, 1988, and within four weeks of its rerease reached the top position, a peak it maintained for two weeks, becoming Houston's third UK number-one single.

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 thirty-seven; and was a minor hit in Australia, peaking at seventy-seven. "Love Will Save the Day" remained in the Billboard Hot 100 for thirteen weeks.

"Where Do Broken Hearts Go" is the fourth single from Whitney Houston's second album, Whitney. The ballad was released in February 1988. The song was written by Frank Wildhorn and Chuck Jackson. Wildhorn approached Jackson about the opportunity to write for Whitney Houston. He gave him the title, and Wildhorn completed the music & lyrics for the song.Initially, Houston did not want to record the song, feeling there was no special message to convey. However, Arista Records CEO Clive Davis believed the song would go to number one if she recorded it, so she agreed. The single became Houston's seventh consecutive number one. "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" has been covered by punk rock group Me First & The Gimme Gimmes on their 2003 album, Take a Break and more recently by Joe McElderry on The X Factor 2009. The song has also been covered by Tracy Miller, a Broadway theatrical actress-singer, who performed the song at a "Frank Wildhorn & Friends" concert.


"So Emotional" is a song recorded by American pop/ R&B singer Whitney Houston. The song was the third single from her second album Whitney, and was released on November 12, 1987. "So Emotional" was written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly , who also penned Madonna's "Like a Virgin", Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors", Heart's "Alone" (all also previous #1 songs), The Bangles "Eternal Flame" (another #1 song) and Linda Ronstadt's "How Do I Make You". The song centers on Houston loving being in love, singing "I get so emotional baby / Every time I think of you / I get so emotional / Ain't it shocking what love can do". At this time Houston already had a string of five consecutive number-one hits on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. "So Emotional" went to the #1 position as well, giving her six consecutive number-one singles; putting her in a three-way tie with The Beatles and The Bee Gees. It became the first number-one of 1988, eventually receiving gold certification. The single remained in the Top 40 for fourteen weeks, and also reached number one on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart."So Emotional" was ranked sixth on The Billboard Hot 100 year-end charts (1988).


"Alfie" would not become a Top 30 hit in the US until the summer of 1967 when Dionne Warwick, the most prolific interpreter of Bacharach/David compositions and the composers' original choice to cut the song, took it to #15. Introduced on the December 1966 album release Here Where There Is Love, Warwick's version of "Alfie" had been an impromptu addition to a recording session at A& R Studio in New York City whose scheduled tracks had been completed early; Scepter Records a&r man Steve Tyrell suggested to Burt Bacharach that the booked time remaining be put to use by having Warwick record a version of "Alfie". Warwick, though feeling it pointless to increase the song's massive cover version count (there were by then some forty-two recorded versions of the song), was persuaded to record the song cutting her vocal in a single take.Although the "Alfie" track on Here Where There Is Love began receiving radio airplay as early as January 1967 the track was not issued as a single until March 1967 and then as the intended B-side of "The Beginning of Loneliness"; however disc jockeys preferred "Alfie" and the track began to ascend the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1967, with a major assist from Warwick's performing "Alfie" on the 39th Academy Awards ceremony television broadcast of 10 April 1967. "Alfie" had a somewhat staggered regional success resulting in its national peak on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 1967 being outside the Top Ten at #15. However Billboard's year end tally of the biggest Pop hits of 1967 ranked "Alfie" at #44 in a Top 40 composed otherwise of Top Ten hits.

When Engine Fails

Dealing with heavy traffic could probably be the most stressing scenario that any car owner could face. But if there's really something that could be more stressing than what a heavy traffic can give, that would be when the engine fails to perform well or if there is a major technical issue with your car.
If the engine failures can be irritating for you , what's more if the engine fails during the heavy traffic? Can you imagine how it feels when you face that nerve wracking bumper-to-bumper traffic and that very irritating engine failures at one? I'm sure your blood will be boiling in anger. To avoid this nightmare, it is recommenced to every driver to check their engine before driving.
As a car owner you are also responsible to have your car be checked by expert technicians to help you out in maintaining its good condition.
It is true that you can do the auto repair all by yourself but sometimes we overlooked some minor problems that eventually will lead to some major technical issues. These possible damages can cost us a lot so in order to avoid this unwanted scenario, it is much advisable to let the expert fix your car. You are lucky if you landed on a shop that provides high quality and very satisfying service like what Auto Repair Federal Way in Washington can offer. They will surely check every single details and will not overlook or ignore any minor problems in your car.

Safety Should Come First

Cleaning your gutter might be one of the most overlooked maintenance at home. It is said that you should clean your gutters at least 3 or four times a year or at least once every season. This kind of activity is something that we should not be overlooked as it may cause several damages at home. It will really cause danger especially if your gutter is made out of wood. The fascia board where the rain gutter is being attached can easily be rotten if the water stays there for a long period of time.
When the wood rot, it can easily be broken if a strong force is being applied and it could be very dangerous if you step on the roof to repair something like the cable disk , antenna or something.
OF course you do not want this to happen right? I suggest that you check on your gutters now or hire a service like that Gutter Cleaning Portland service in Oregon.
Remember that it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of your family so never ever ignore the gutters and remember to check them from time to time. Negligence and ignorance has never been an excuse when it comes to the health and safety of your family.
Have a great day guys and happy blogging!

"I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)" is the first single from Whitney Houston's second studio album Whitney. It was produced by Narada Michael Walden, and written by George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam of the band Boy Meets Girl, who had previously written the number-one Whitney Houston hit "How Will I Know". The original arrangement was more of a country tune but was transformed to make it a dance song by Walden. Originally the song that gave Merrill and Rubican their British top ten success as Boy Meets Girl, "Waiting For a Star to Fall" was intended by the duo to be a song for Houston. The duo sent it to Arista Records, but they passed on it citing it was not suitable for Houston. "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)" received mixed reviews from critics. Vince Aletti of Rolling Stone magazine, in a review of the album Whitney, criticized the song, commenting that "not taking any chances, the songwriters [George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam] have simply come up with a clever anagram of their original hit [How Will I Know], and [Narada Michael] Walden has glossed it over in an identically perky style. Internationally, the song was a massive hit, becoming her most successful single at the time. It reached number one in about twelve countries.


"Reach Out for Me" is a 1964 single by Dionne Warwick. The single, written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, is a track from the album Make Way for Dionne Warwick.

Summer Plans

Summer is here and i'm sure most of you have their own summer vacation plans already. Summer is always associated with some outdoor activities like hitting some wonderful beaches in town or simply going to some place where you and your family can bond together. Unfortunately, me and my family don't have a solid plan yet however we are thinking of visiting our grandparents to province. It's been awhile since we last saw our grandparents so i guess it is just right to spend our vacation with them.
Besides, the province is quite nice too. It's pretty quiet since the place is way too far from the civilization. There are some mountains here too where we can do some camping activities. Having an unusual summer adventure like this will surely provide enjoyment and great summer experience that we can never forget. I'm just so tired with beaches because we always hit the beach every summer and going on the same place every year is kinda boring to me already.
Well, i will definitely recommend this vacation plan to my mom. I will also encourage my siblings to help me out in convincing my parents. Well, i'm sure they would love to see our grandparents too so convincing them will be no ease for us. Anyway, i guess i have to start preparing now the things that we might need for this upcoming week-long vacation.
I was actually online last night when i saw this cool laundry bag being showcased online.Along with this Camouflage design, there are other 13 stylish laundry bag designs available. Anyway, the reason why i am online yesterday is because i was looking for some landscaping idea. I noticed my mom is very busy with her garden recently and i thought of helping her by searching some cool landscaping idea and tips to help her. Good thing i have found some techniques at Dallas Landscaping site. I will share this to my mom later. Anyway, I also found thos cute little stephen joseph quilted backpack. This one is definitely perfect for my little brother.

Warwick's version of "A House Is Not a Home" fared better in Canada, where it was a top 40 hit, peaking at #37. The song made the R&B top 10 in Cashbox by both Warwick and Benton, with neither artist specified as best seller. The song was covered by R&B singer Luther Vandross, whose version became an R&B hit in 1981. His performance of the song at the NAACP Awards telecast would bring Warwick to tears.


"Greatest Love of All" is an inspirational song written by Michael Masser and Linda Creed and performed first by George Benson and later, Whitney Houston. Creed wrote the lyrics in the midst of her struggle with breast cancer. The words describe her feelings about coping with a terminal illness and being a young mother. Creed eventually succumbed to the disease in April 1986 (at the age of 36).The song was the seventh single released from Houston's self-titled multi-platinum debut studio album, Whitney Houston. The single, released in April 1986, spent three weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in May of that year. Clive Davis, founder of Houston's label Arista Records, was initially against Houston recording the song, but he eventually gave in after persuasion from Houston and Masser. The song was first included as the B-side to the single "You Give Good Love", another Top 5 hit by Houston.Houston's original album version features a piano intro, while the single version begins with a keyboard intro. After the single became a success, it replaced the album version on subsequent copies of the album. The original album version was restored for the 2010 Deluxe Anniversary Edition reissue of the album. Many critics called the single the centerpiece of Houston's debut album. Stephen Holden of The New York Times wrote that "Houston sings it with a forceful directness that gives its message of self-worth an astounding resonance and conviction" and called the song a compelling assertion of spiritual devotion, black pride, and family loyalty, all at once. Don Shewey of Rolling Stone wrote that as the song builds, Houston "slowly pours on the soul, slips in some churchy phrasing, holds notes a little longer and shows off her glorious voice."

"How Will I Know" is a song recorded by American recording artist Whitney Houston for her debut album, entitled Whitney Houston (1985). It was released by Arista Records in November 1985, 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 decide 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 ten in in Sweden, Norway, and United Kingdom and the top twenty in the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Switzerland.
The song's music video features scenes of Houston dancing in a strikingly designed setting of video screens and colored partitions. The music video gave Houston exposure to the teens and MTV, a feat which the black artists had traditionally found tough to achieve. It also received nominations at the 1986 MTV Video Music Awards in the categories of Best Female Video and Best New Artist in a Video, winning the former category. The song has been performed on many of her tours including Greatest Love Tour (1986) and her recent Nothing but Love World Tour (2009–10). "How Will I Know" is also featured as a remix on Houston's compilation album, Whitney: The Greatest Hits (2000), whereas the original version is featured on The Ultimate Collection (2007).


"Walk On By" is a song composed by Burt Bacharach, with lyrics by Hal David. The song was originally recorded by, and a hit for, Dionne Warwick. It has subsequently been covered many times, and has been a hit for several other artists as well, including Gloria Gaynor, Isaac Hayes, The Stranglers, D-Train, Jo Jo Zep, Sybil, Gabrielle, Cyndi Lauper and Seal. The original version of "Walk On By" was recorded at the same December 1963 session that yielded "Anyone Who Had a Heart", which, in 1964, became Warwick's second Top Ten hit. Released in April of that year, "Walk on By" became a landmark single, reaching number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number one hit Cashbox's R&B chart. (Billboard did not print rhythm and blues charts during 1964, the year of the song's peak performance.) The song also reached the top 10 in a brief run on Billboard's easy listening survey. Warwick also recorded a German version of the song, entitled "Geh Vorbei"

"Saving All My Love for You" is the second hit single from Whitney Houston's self-titled debut album. This jazzy ballad (released in August 1985) is about a love affair with a married man, and the singer is "saving all her love for him". The song was written by Michael Masser and Gerry Goffin. The song was arranged by Gene Page. It was also a minor hit for Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. in 1978 on their album Marilyn & Billy (although Davis’ voice was not heard on their version). The music video, directed by Stuart Orme, was filmed in London, and features Houston singing and recording with her married music producer, and falling in love with him along the way. Released in 1985, "Saving All My Love For You" entered the Billboard Hot 100 at an impressive #53, jumping to #39 the following week (August 24), and reaching the Top 10 five weeks later. The single reached the #1 spot the week of October 26, 1985, and would became the first of seven record-setting consecutive number-one singles in the United States for Houston; a record that still holds.


"Anyone Who Had a Heart" is a song written by Burt Bacharach (music) and Hal David (lyrics) for Dionne Warwick in 1963. Warwick's original recording hit the Top Ten in the United States, Canada, Spain, The Netherlands, South Africa, Belgium and Australia in January 1964. Cilla Black's version was a UK #1 hit in 1964: in May 2010 research published by BBC Radio 2 revealed that her version was the biggest female chart hit of the 1960s although it, and Black herself, remain relatively unknown outside the UK and western Europe. Despite the international success and recognition of Warwick's original version, the besting in Great Britain by Black's version has long been a sore point with Warwick. In a 1995 edition of Great Performances which saluted Burt Bacharach, Warwick stated that Black's version of "Anyone Who Had a Heart" replicated Warwick's to the point where had Warwick coughed while recording her vocal for the original track or had that track's organist hit a wrong note these features would have been present on Black's cover. In fact - whether intentionally - Black's version features distinctly different lyrics on the chorus than those recorded by Warwick or are standard for the song. Also, arranger Johnny Pearson utilized a bassoon solo for the instrumental break in Black's version as opposed to the saxophone utilized in the Warwick original.
