Whether it is the dynamic voice of the late-Whitney Houston or the delicate country Dolly Parton version, Americans have chosen I Will Always Love You as their favourite love song.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, Harris Interactive has released their poll of over 2,000 Americans who chose the best love songs. The Parton-written song topped the poll with 38 percent of the vote and was tops among the sub-categories of the divorced, separated and widowed.
Second was Unchained Melody with the most popular version by the Righteous Brothers, although numerous versions hit the top ten in the mid-50's. Third was Percy Sledge's When a Man Loves a Woman.
