While the film got lukewarm reviews, the musical version of The Bodyguard opened to critical acclaim when it premiered on Broadway. Those skeptical the lackluster action flick could successfully translate on stage were surprised by the show's charm. The Bodyguard musical brought some fresh energy into the hybrid romance/thriller and smoothly weaved the pop songs that comprised The Bodyguard soundtrack into the plot. While the story may be a little campy, it's hard not to get behind the saga of sibling rivalry, life or death situations, and forbidden love. If you've got opinions on the likes of Elvis Costello and Whitney Houston, you've come to the right place. Here, you'll find a list of all songs in The Bodyguard ranked by singability.
 

Given the show integrates some of the biggest pop hits of all time, any one of these tunes would be a great addition to a playlist. This is especially true if the theme of that playlist happens to be love. "I Will Always Love You" is a classically melancholy tune of a romance that's powerful, but ultimately not sustainable. There's also the Whitney Houston staple "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," a simple - but thrilling - song about the want for love and companionship. Elvis Costello fans will appreciate the genuine plea for more love in the world that is "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding."
