I Will Always Love You

This week in 1974 Dolly Parton’s I Will Always Love You hit number 1 on the US Country chart. Dolly wrote the ballad of undying platonic love for her longtime mentor, Porter Wagoner, with whom she recorded 13 duet albums before she decided to part ways.

Nearly two decades later, Whitney Houston’s version of the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 and became one of the best-selling singles of all time.
