Most Memorable 90s Songs by a Female Singer


The Top Ten

1 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

Whitney, Whitney, Whitney. Girl, you had it all and then some! The world was at your fingertips and you lost it all because of drugs. RIP now, and it's the sad truth, but Krissy will be with you soon enough.

I just have to say this because it's weighing heavily on me at the moment... People, I know a lot of you are young on here and I'll warn you of this. Middle and High School are some of the most challenging times in your life. Most of the time, it either makes or breaks you. There will be drug use and wild parties practically every weekend (no lie), and you'll probably want to try weed once. It's normal. Just don't let yourselves slide down that slope. I mean, look at people like Whitney Houston, she had everything and drug abuse took it away from her. Just don't lose yourselves. - theOpinionatedOne

Few vocalists could get away with opening a song with 45 unaccompanied seconds of singing, but Houston's powerhouse version of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" is a tour de force

Rest in peace Whitney Houston but you was the best female singer of all time in the nineties. She ran and paved the way for a lot of these singers out here. You had a lot of great hits but I'll always love you ran the charts. You will always be my favorite of all time, go for Whitney Houston!

2 My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion

It's not my personal favourite, but it's an excellent song and it goes with an excellent movie and it's sung by one of the best artists, all combined, that makes this song number 1!

One of the strongest most memorable ballads of all time, its success, and the way Celine's voice erupts in its powerhouse form towards the end makes this song timeless

The biggest song of all time by a female artist!
