    How will I know?:

    "Anyone having doubts about the gravity of their condition may like to step over to a bar and try some controllled drinking. Try it several times. It may be worth a bad case of The Jitters, to get a better understanding of your condition."

    Uuuuhm Hello Perez, the "Proper" term would be This is a "Acapella Vocal Track" Not Isolated….. Learn your terms bb.

    There is no denying the huge talent that the world lost. It is unfortunate that it has been years since anyone has seen or heard this Whitney. I feel for her daughter, who grew up mostly knowing the less than stellar Whitney Houston.

    I could remember that song so well, I guesss it was her breakthrough. She was so beautifull.

    It's unfortunate that Whitney met Bobby Brown, got hooked onto crack and other drugs. This ending was inevitable. Who's next? Probably Lindsay Lohan, especially since her parents use her as a cash cow and are oblivious to her addiction and mental issues.

    So NOW you wanna talk about how great and talented she was. You've talked shit about her for years.

    Dee Tee'z: Yes, this might be acapella, but I believe the vocals were isolated from the original track, hence the title "Whitney Houston's Isolated Vocal Track on How Will I Know".

    Now, *this* is talent. No autotune needed whatsoever. It's way too easy to become a so-called star today, talent really does not seem like a requirement.

    Re: Everything popular is wrong. – Hey Dumb dumb, I NEVER said the vocal wasn't isolated from the music… but the "PROPER" term is "ACAPELLA" When they sell the 12" vinyl's with all the remixes It doesn't say "The name of the track (Isolated vocal)" It ALWAYS say's "The Name of the track (Acapella) or (Acapella vocal) That is the correct term… Learn it bb! ;)

    Hearing this makes it all the more sad to know that her addictions took that once powerful and beautiful voice from her.

    @dee tee'z: uuuuhm hello dumb dumb, you're still wrong. the "PROPER" term is still ISOLATED VOCAL TRACK, its not technically acapella. acapella is when a group or artist sings a sing without music/backing tracks/ETC. just vocals. as compared to an isolated vocal track such as this one, where they take the original song, which was recorded with the backing music…and EDIT IT OUT so you are left with nothing but the isolated. vocal. track. get it? acapella is by definition isolated, but isolated is not necessarily acapella…so the 12" vinyls you buy that say acapella means it was recorded that way. not edited out.

    don't be an asshole bb. you don't know what you're talking about bb. learn your shit before you run your mouth like a moron bb.

    First off, folks - it's not acapella. It is a track from a studio recording, in isolation. In her ears, she was hearing the full orchestration. So you're wrong. acapella refers to songs sung without orchestration - just vocals - and this is NOT that. It is part of a studio multi-track recording - and Whitney was hearing it. Secondly, and more importantly, her decline was often discussed in Hollywood -before- Bobby Brown. I'm not saying that's a fact - because I don't know - but I had heard a lot of comments about it. If you ever go back, you'll see that from the earliest days, she was prone to sweating - and this is ostensibly not due to a fast metabolism, but the drugs. Again, it's just speculation - but it was often discussed. The word in L.A. was that people knew but wouldn't say anything because of respect for her talent and Clive Davis, who loved her.

    Hey friends, if you're gonna nitpick, "a cappella" is two words



  15. 15

    Dee Teez, this is not "a cappella," as you so claim. To sing "a cappella" is to sing a song with no musical accompaniment. This track? The one that is isolated? It is the actual vocal tracks from the How Will I Know? single, "isolated" from the music that comprises the rest of the song. When she sang it, in a sound booth at a recording studio, it was done with headphones on, providing the music the song is sung to to Whitney as she sings. So, by definition, it is not a cappella. Dumb dumb.
