"That song was definitely inspired by my living with Elvis. I knew what it was like to live with the biggest male diva of all time. I had to write this lyric around Whitney Houston who was the female diva in The Bodyguard. So I took some of the happenings and some of my feelings about having lived with Elvis and wrote about it in The Bodyguard. Like the lyrics 'Stay in my arms if you dare or must I imagine you there" – because it was a challenge to be with someone who was that larger than life, someone who was such a huge rock star" she goes on to say." - Linda Thompson (songwriter)
"My inspiration for that song, you'll never connect these dots, it was Janis Joplin's ''Piece of My Heart''." - David Foster
''Whitney was such an amazing person as well as being an incredible talent. In studio she was so focused, she stepped up to the microphone without any warm-up. She was an amazing talent.'' - Linda Thompson
