The original is by Dolly Parton. It was written by her, sung by her and beutifully performed by her until Whitney and RIK ruined it.

The original is not by Whitney. You'll be telling me the original 'hush' is by Kula Shaker next !

    Chill Out!

    Most people think that Whitney did it first because country music is shite and doesn't get any air-play in England, plus it was on the soundtrack to the Bodyguard so it was overhyped and overplayed into our heads for so long.

    But, I have heard that version and think it's shite (that's country music for ya).
    Besides, Whitney's got a great voice and sang it well!

    On the other hand - Most covers are shite and ruin the reputation of the original (Marilyn Mansons "Tainted Love" to name one) because the sheep that buy music nowadays think that their favourite band did it first and no music existed before they made it. There are some exceptions in my opinion: Whitney's version of "I Will Always Love You", David Grays version of "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye", Nirvanas' "Man Who Sold The World" - there are others too....
