No doubt "Orion" is one of my 10 favorit pieces of music - Trampampulis

72 I Wanna Dance with Somebody - Whitney Houston

Absolutely wonderful disco-dance track that was a big boom in 1987. Whitney's voice is stunning. Should be much higher on this list - Larissa

"I like this song but I have a few comments:
1.Wasn't Whitney on DRUGS and that's how she died?
2.This song kind of takes too long, I mean seriously!
And 3. Yet I still like the song.

Great lyrics... Gret music
