    Whitney Houston can't carry a tune in a bucket.

    I'm surprised I never saw it, since I had such a crush on KC back in the day.

    I always thought I preferred Whitney's version, but Dolly's was quite good (and she did write it, I believe.)

    not a big Dolly Parton fan... but I much prefer her version over Whitney's...

    Dolly truly conveys the feeling of one who's telling her lover goodbye forever... I can't think of a singer who's better conveyed choked emotion in a recording...

    Whitney's version, while pleasant to listen to, is way too polished to feel genuine...

    That's pretty much exactly my take. I listened to Dolly (for probably the first time in 20 years, or whenever that song came out) - I really didn't like her back in the day. Now, I can see what people were seeing back then.

    Whitney bastardized the song. She should have been stoned in public for remaking it.
