    WOMAN IN LOVE By Barbra Streisand

    Life is a moment in space
    When the dream is gone
    It's a lonelier place
    I kiss the morning goodbye...

    "Woman in Love" is a popular song performed by Barbra Streisand and taken from her 1980 album, Guilty. The song was written by Barry and Robin Gibb of The Bee Gees.

    After the success enjoyed by the Bee Gees in the late 1970s, the band was asked to participate in musical endeavors for other artists, and Streisand asked Barry Gibb to write an album for her.This album ultimately became Guilty. "Woman in Love", as the lead single, became one of the most successful songs of Streisand's music career. It spent a total of three weeks at the number-one position on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Streisand's fifth (and last to date) number one on this chart. It also spent five weeks atop the adult contemporary chart, her sixth number one on that tally.The song also proved very popular internationally, reaching number one in many countries, including the United Kingdom,and it status as the best-selling single by female singer in France,which sold more than another hit “My heart will go on”, respectly. And it also one of the best-selling single of all time,and one of the best-selling singles in 1980 and 1981.

    About midway through the song, Streisand holds a note for about 10 seconds while singing the line: I stumble and fall / But I give you it all (the word "all" is the one held for that duration). During the chart run of "Woman In Love", Casey Kasem claimed in an edition of the radio program American Top 40 that this was the longest unaltered note held by a soloist in a number-one song, though it would be later surpassed by Whitney Houston in her smash single "I Will Always Love You".
