  • Song Info : The song that broke Whitney's career in the UK was 'Saving All My Love For You' which climbed to be the Christmas No 1 in the British charts in 1985 having already hit the top spot in the US in October. It's a sophisticated and sexy ballad of forbidden love and is certainly more raunchy than many of the ballads she has recorded since. The song, like The Greatest Love of All, almost never got recorded as Arista supremo Clive Davis was against it. He had Whitney redo the song because at first she sang it like Aretha Franklin would sing it. Written by Michael Masser and Gerry Goffin, 'Saving All My Love For You' was originally recorded by Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. - from "The A to Z Whitney Houston" by Alan Stuart
