Whitney Houston Didn’t Sing “Let’s Hear it For the Boy”

posted by on April 6 at 13:40 PM

Although I spent all Friday evening insisting she did, she didn’t.

Denise Williams sang it.

To my credit, though, the dude who wrote the song also wrote Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” So you can see how I’d get confused.

If you had the Footloose soundtrack you'd know this already.

Don't trust limewire, n00b.

I had the Footloose soundtrack. I just never paid any attention to who sang the song because I just assumed it was Whitney.

I remember dancing around as a happy eight year old, singing that song and pretending to be Whitney Houston. I was a confused little kid.

So really, I shouldn't trust my eight-year-old self.

Lesson learned.

Denise Williams, Whitney Houston...they were all lame. Now, Teena Marie "Lovergirl" and Chaka Khan "I Feel For You", they were the shit!

I danced for hours on end to this song when i was a kid. I wanted so much to be the little kid in the tux. I don't know how I didn't know I was a big homo.
