8. All The Man I Need
Released as the second single from the I’m Your Baby Tonight album, “All The Man I Need” reached number one also. Originally written as an R&B song, Whitney’s vocal gymnastics gave it so much crossover appeal, pop radio couldn’t do anything but spin it when requested. Whitney’s male counterpart, Luther Vandross, recorded his own version and it didn’t quite measure up. That’s serious vocal prowess if you’re out singing Luther Vandross. No further explanation needed.
