More Whitney

Since her death is only a week old, I've been reading some comments from critic's who were pretty dismissive of Whitney's music when she was at her peak.  What I'm seeing is a whole bunch of "she had a great voice, voice of her generation, even if the songs didn't match up" stuff.
But I've got to tell you.  Last Monday Sirius' Heart and Soul channel had an all-day Whitney music-a-thon, and even I was surprised how good her back catalog sounded.  There are duds.  Who doesn't have duds in their catalog?
But the songs have held up.
My wife, who is not a music critic, summed it up best when I told her about this all-day tribute:  "She had good songs".  That should be good enough for everybody.
