Valentine's Day 2018 is the day that the adorable, bouncing BABY CLASSIC was born! What's a "Baby Classic" you ask? It's a mega-hit that has just recently been birthed in to "classic hits" status (a.k.a. 25+ years old!)
Drumroll......The very first "Baby Classic" is:
Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" (1993)
This smash hit was the pop star's longest running Billboard Hot 100 number-one single. It stayed #1 for 9 straight weeks. This was from the soundtrack to the movie "The Bodyguard" starring Houston and Kevin Costner. This movie was released in November of 1992, and ran in theaters for 13 weeks, eventually grossing $411M worldwide. In honor of Valentine's Day, this love song is our first BABY CLASSIC!(Listen to the podcast below to hear how "Baby Classic" was born on the show LIVE!)
