How Will I Know Lyrics - Whitney Houston

Review The Song (4)

There's a boy I know, he's the one I dream of
Looks into my eyes, takes me to the clouds above
Ooh I lose control, can't seem to get enough
When I wake from dreaming, tell me is it really love

How will I know (Don't trust your feelings)
How will I know
How will I know (Love can be deceiving)
How will I know
How will I know if he really loves me
I say a prayer with every heart beat
I fall in love whenever we meet
I'm asking you what you know about these things
How will I know if he's thinking of me
I try to phone but I'm too shy (can't speak)
Falling in love is all bitter sweet
This love is strong why do I feel weak

Oh, wake me, I'm shaking, wish I had you near me now
Said there's no mistaking, what I feel is really love

oh tell me


If he loves me, if he loves me not (X3)

"How Will I Know" is a song recorded by American recording artist Whitney Houston for her debut album, entitled Whitney Houston, which was released in February 1985. It was released by Arista Records in November that year, as the album's third single. Composed by George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam, the song was originally intended for Janet Jackson, but she passed on it. Houston then recorded the song with altered lyrics and production from Narada Michael Walden. An up-tempo dance song, the lyrics speak about the protagonist trying to discern if a boy she likes will ever like her back.

"How Will I Know" received mainly positive reviews. The song became Houston's second number one single on the United States Billboard Hot 100. It spent two weeks atop the chart and also became Houston's first chart topper on the Canadian RPM Singles Chart. In other regions, the song was successful, reaching the top 10 in in Sweden, Norway, and United Kingdom and the top 20 in the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Switzerland.

The song's music video features scenes of Houston dancing in a strikingly designed setting of video screens and colored partitions. The music video gave Houston exposure to the teens and MTV, a feat which the black artists had traditionally found tough to achieve. It also received nominations at the 1986 MTV Video Music Awards in the categories of Best Female Video and Best New Artist in a Video, winning the former category. The song has been performed on many of her tours including Greatest Love Tour (1986) and her recent Nothing but Love World Tour (2009–10). "How Will I Know" is also featured as a remix on Houston's compilation album, Whitney: The Greatest Hits (2000), whereas the original version is featured on The Ultimate Collection (2007).

Where we come from... | Reviewer: RJ Smith | 2/12/12

Whitney and I, is the leafy, suburban environs of East Orange, New Jersey. She came there with her family who wanted to escape the Newark that remained after the riots in 1967. I came from Belleville after the death of my Dad in 1964. If you know what "Doddtown" means, you instantly are filled with the special feelings that growing up there has left with you. And now, so much has changed. And, yesterday, Whitney left this world. It occurred to me today that I shouldn't mourn her passing, because in reality, Whitney is free. She's better off than we here are. Only pray for those who know and love her, especially her daughter Bobbi Kristina, who really needs prayer and support. What we CAN do is be thankful to God for giving Whitney and her amazing voice to us all, forever, in her recorded works. She, like Michael, and so many others, though physically gone, will continue to touch our spirits for the rest of our lives. This song is one of Whitney's that does just that. I just ordered the 12" remix vinyl single on-line, and will enjoy being wrapped up in it's exuberant giddiness for a long time to come. I hope. I've got to say her single from the Olympics, "One Moment in Time" is also one of my top singles of all time, too. THANK YOU WHITNEY. Rest in Peace.

This song is simply amazing. I've always loved the 80's music out of all of the genres and it always seemed to appeal to me most. Must be because it's up-beat and catchy most of the time.
