I've heard it before, while Dolly's version is better, I still don't like it.  I don't hate it the way I hate Whitney's version though.

I have to stand up for Dolly Parton, who wrote the song and who recorded an infinitely better interpretation.  Whitney absolutely murderated this sweet, understated, heartbreaking gem. 


I really enjoy great female vocalists, and Whitney had a great voice, but I hated her style.

Dude, yes.  James Taylor has a lovely voice, and he seems like a lovely human being, but I can't effing stand any of his work, except this one duet with JD Souther.

Didn't James Taylor get Carly Simon hooked on smack?

I thought I was the only one who really, really disliked Whitney Houston.

Oh, no no no. There are many of us who despise that sappy drivel.

Well they did smack together, yes.

There are songs where I love the tune but hate the lyrics
"Give me the storm and tempest of thought and action, rather than the dead calm of ignorance and faith. Banish me from Eden when you will; but first let me eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge."

Hey, go easy on Dolly, I just heard she has breast cancer.

I just totally don't get the love for taylor swifts new album.  It's like back spoken word poetry with weird sound effects in the background
I disavow anyone in the movement involved in any illegal,unethical, sexist, or racist behavior. However, I don't have the energy or time to investigate each person and case, and a lack of individual disavowals for each incident should not be construed as condoning such behavior.
