ANYTIME YOU NEED A FRIEND

"Anytime you need a friend" was a pop ballad where Mariah could let her vocie roam free, and interestingly, when she did so, she again kept clear of her high register, preferring a low, rough growl. Once more, there was a positive message in the words. This song offered the only trace of gospel music on "Music box", even then, it seemed muted and more secular than holy.


For this single, two videos were made. The regular one was showing Mariah in a house and on the street. The second one, the remix version, was showing Mariah and her crew while they were recording the first video. In this second video, we can see Mariah having fun with her friends and Tommy Mottola. The remix version became more popular than the regular one, and ended up on the video "Fantasy: Mariah Carey at Madison Square Garden".
