Composers and singers around the world have composed and created different songs and some of them become masterpieces which we can state as “never die”. Throughout ages, these songs are always fan-favourite ever and top most listened songs. Although there are other songs still in the list of masterpieces, these songs are author’s favourite and please do add your own list. Surprisingly, all these three songs are recorded by female vocalists.

My Heart Will Go On (Titanic Movie Soundtrack) by Celine Dion

The song is written by composer James Horner (who died in a 2015 plane crash at age 61) and lyricist Will Jennings and recorded by Canadian singer Céline Dion. The song was debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on Feb. 28, 1998, buoying the Titanic soundtrack’s 16-week run atop the Billboard 200. The song also appeared on Dion’s late-1997 disc Let’s Talk About Love, and together, the two albums sold more than 60 million copies, according to Sony Music.

Actually, Céline Dion never wanted to sing “My Heart Will Go On.” She told Billboard that “When I recorded it, I didn’t think about a movie; I didn’t think about radio”.

I will always love you by Whitney Houston

“I Will Always Love You” was covered by Whitney Houston and recorded for her 1992 film The Bodyguard. The song was originally written by Dolly Parton and released on June 6, 1974, as the second single from her thirteenth solo studio album, Jolene.

Houston’s cover has since become one of the best-selling singles of all time and contributed to The Bodyguard being the top-selling soundtrack of all time. Kevin Costner, Houston’s male opposite and one of the film’s co-producers, is responsible for suggesting this song for Houston to cover in the film’s first track release. He brought the original song to composer David Foster, who rearranged it as a pop ballad for Houston.

It topped the Billboard Hot 100 for fourteen consecutive weeks; at the time, this was a record for longest number one. It also reached #3 on the Hot 100 after Houston’s death in 2012.
