Throwback Thursday

November 17, 2022, marks the 30th anniversary of the soundtrack for the movie The Bodyguard starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. There are 12 incredible songs, each telling a story that represents the different aspects of the film. 

The first six tracks are songs by Whitney Houston, including two hits, I Will Always Love You and I’m Every Woman. The fantastic tunes from Whitney Houston’s music repertoire chosen for the soundtrack suit the movie’s story well, especially Queen of the Night. Her voice was phenomenal, rich and bold. She sang with incredible passion.

Five other songs from various artists also complement the story of the movie The Bodyguard

-Kenny G & Aaron Neville have a heartfelt song, Even If My Heart Would Break, that parallels Whitney Houston’s  I Will Always Love You – a romantic vibe and a powerful love. 
-Lisa Stansfield’s song Someday (I’m Coming Back) is a hopeful tune that everything will be okay. 
-It’s Gonna Be a Lovely Day, a song by the group S.O.U.L S.Y.S.T.E.M. is upbeat and full of hope. The dance beat is incredible and puts a smile on one’s face.
-Curtis Stigers’s single What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love and Understanding is a fantastic song full of positivity. The music is catchy and lively.

Alan Silvestri has a musical piece – the theme of The Bodyguard has incredible Classical musical styles. He did a remarkable job composing this piece. The vibe describes the movie’s mood well.

The soundtrack has an impressive playlist of songs that complement The Bodyguard nicely.
