CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
SAME SCRIPT, DIFFERENT CAST
“…This is a retake of my life,
I was his star for many nights.
But now the roles have changed,
& you’re the leading lady
in his life...”
Two women. One man. Both females have loved the same male. This was a stellar duet recorded by Whitney Houston and Deborah Cox. The former is now on the outer with her man, cast aside for his new love interest. Cox refuses to heed Houston's warning. She insists her man loves him and that he will remain faithful. Houston persists, pointing out the pattern she previously ignored. The confrontation is sung from both perspectives.
Included on Houston's 2000 compilation 'Whitney: The Greatest Hits', the epic collaboration was written by Stacey Daniels, Montell Jordan, Anthony "Shep" Crawford and Shae Jones.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
