I DON'T WANNA CRY

The ballad "I don't wanna cry" - reminiscent in both rhythm and arrangement of George Michael's "Careless whispers" - opens with an attractive acoustic guitar line and then features the powerful lower end of Mariah's range, one which has exactly the right dramatic power for such an emotional song, with its clever pause beat as emphasis before the last chorus. Equally soothing and draining, it serves notice of the timeless quality of Mariah's voice.

"I don't wanna cry" was in the USA the fourth and final single off Mariah's debut album. It debuted at number 50 and, within two weeks, hit number one.
