Bette Midler isn't just a celebrated stage singer with a wonderful voice, but she's also a good actress too.

Songs like "The Rose" and "Wind Beneath My Wings" are pure examples of her lust vocals and her incredible deliverly.

Wind Beneath My Wings

I've taken you for granted, but I've always loved you.... even though my actions never showed that.

I am selfish.
I say I don't need you.
But in reality, I do because you support me in so many ways.

A hymn to selfishness - "I'm a big star and you are nobody. But take it from me, it has been a lot of fun standing on your face for the last thirty years."

A DESPICABLE song. Almost as nasty and vicious as 'My Way'.

I just learned that Wind Beneath My Wings was not an original Bette Midler song. The song was recorded by seven different artists between 1982 and 1983: Bob Montgomery, Roger Whittaker, Colleen Hewett, Sheena Easton, Lou Rawls, and Gladys Knight and the Pips. The song was written by Jeff Silbar and Larry Henley.

Bette Midler is not an inductee. Why is her birthday being announced on FRL? This is a mistake.

You didn't hear? Bette Midler played bass for Paul Butterfield on some unreleased live albums. They let her in.

You've got to be kidding.
