Her two big hits are schmaltzy crap. "I Will Always Love You" and "The Greatest Love of All" were overly sappy vehicles for her to show off her super-duper voice. And it did seem like she had a great voice. But if these were her two best efforts, maybe people need to take their mourning down a notch.
I know she had a bunch of hits and won a slew of Americal Music Awards and Grammys, but the lasting impressions just aren't there. I'm sad that she died. It seems like her life really went down a shitty path. But comparing her to Michael Jackson? There's no way.
