Robert-Anthony you read my mind. I swear I just bought the CD Traveller last week, because I'm addicted to the soulful "Tennessee Whiskey". And just yesterday I was thinking the same. How would it sound if they had a duet song together. Music for "grown-ups" with great lyrics and soul. Mariah and Chris, yes, yes, yes.

One of her best remixes. And we all know she has many. I also love the video, so much fun. C&C remixes were all so good.

"Remembering how natural she used to be, both vocally and in herself." Absolutely, that's the Mariah you could only love. Nobody could compare with her at that time. I will listen to the concert too. What a night at that church in NY. I miss the natural, carefree Mariah. Luckily we can watch it over and over again. Honestly I'm not in a Christmas mood right now (not because it's early, but because of the difficult time) but when I see Mariah at St. John The Devine, it does something to the heart. It's pure joy for the eyes and ears. MC at her best.

Mariah and McDonald's, hmm I wouldn't choose it. Her 90ies commercials were cool, I love the japan commercials with the lipstick and Nescafé. Haha. Today it's too much with all that commercials for my taste.

Yes, the first part of the song reminds me of "My All", "After Tonight" too. I enjoy that part after the first listen, but I think at 3:35 minutes it sounds like another song, that's a bit strange. A pop Christmas song and gospel at the end doesn't fit well together. A Christmas song for the radio/streaming and a gospel song for the fans would fit better. But I'm happy to hear something new.

Oh this is a nice surprise. New music. Sounds promising. Tonight I had dream about Mariah that she would release a new cd called "Kiss" lol. And today there is the news about this new song. Fantastic. Only 4 more days.

I had to laugh because of Winklevoss. I watched "Social Network" one week ago (great movie). The twins who got fooled by Mark Zuckerberg right? Hmm, now that she made this commercial, I would even prefer it was about new cookies for Christmas. Lol. Yes, she looks nice but I hope it comes the day where it's about music again. I'm not interested on investments.

"How come a generic piano ballade, quintessential Adele song, with nothing new to offer, get so much praise?" Great post, completely agree. I think you have answered it already. They praise it because 95 % of today's music is sh..., bubblegum at its worst. So this new Adele song sounds indeed like all her others. Nothing special. I like Adele, I have two albums of hers, but I won't buy another one. But there's one thing Adele has an advantage, she has a good image right. No scandals, no diva behavior, there are people outside who prefer that kind of image. I give a thumb up for the classic video. That's rare today too.

Absolutely. And I don't care what teens think about Mariah. Every adult knows her and not because of AIWFCIY. They know her because of her 90ies hits and also because she's one of the diva trinity with Whitney and Celine.

Oh yes, I still have videos from the VH1 specials too. They were all great, you're right there must have worked a lamb at that time. It was really a cool time and you could only love Mariah and her music. So fresh, so sweet, so adoreable, I will never forget that time. I esteem those memories.

"Crazy how Mariah's sound is instantly recognizable even when she isn't singing." Yes Terna, it's so true. That's her unique MC style that I love so much from day one. Songs from the vault 97-98 are really needed. There must be hidden gems from that era.

I really like this group. I have bought an "ear book" about New York, it has CD's with typical music from the city like Jazz, Swing, RnB, Hip-Hop with three songs from Allure. Very cool. I always hear Mariah when I listen to Allure. I wonder if MC has a song from Allure completely sung by herself. We just need a Rarities part two.

I was thinking the same. Her songwriting is one reason I became a fan beside her outstanding voice, aura. I love her early lyrics so much and of course the "Butterfly lyrics". I miss those kind of lyrics, that were really poetic. We all know her voice changed, but why those beautiful lyrics? What she created with Walter was magic. I wish she would find another "Walter" a great musician who would inspire her. Than she could do a jazz album or soul-pop album with great lyrics. One can dream.

I was 15 or 16 when I got my first cell phone. Back at the late 90ies. Lol that big, black Nokia one. And luckily there was no Google on it. I understand that Mariah doesn't want cell phones for her kids. But I think all the other kids will show them Google and so on.

Emotions is really "pure gold". Yesterday I needed comfort through music, so I played her debut, "Emotions" and "Music box". The magic of songs like "Vanishing", "Can't let go", "So blessed", "Til the end of time", "The wind", "AYNAF", "All I ever wanted" and "EFA" are unmatched until today.

(Wednesday 8 September 2021; 19:47)
Yes, I feel the same way the last 4 or 5 years. That's no music, that's noise. There's no soul and no heart to it. Even a "bad" song from the 60ies, 70ies, 80ies, 90ies until 2003 is way better than what is popular today. The few "newer" singers I like, have all in common that they have retro vibes (real instruments, can actually sing lol) on their music. With the movies it's the same, the older ones are better, but here and there a new one is also enjoyable and pretty good. Something I just can't say about today's music.

I'm going to watch the "Music Box concert" again. Time machine lol. Mariah at minute 54, so cool playing air drums.

Yes, yes, yes. The way she sings "All in Your mind". I can't believe, it's so good. Then the powerful version of the Dreamlover remix and "Just be good to me". It gives so much joy to watch her. Mariah was rocking that night with all her heart.

That setlist is everything. I'm so "freaking out" about "Vanishing" live. It's out of this world. The power, softness and soul, only Mariah. What a concert, I'm so happy that I can now watch it over and over again.

I don't think so. But who knows? I would be happy for you (if the US lambs can go). I just try to enjoy the summer outside, usually I love autumn, but I won't think about what will be in 2 months. I'm so tired of all of this. I hope everybody is well and keep enjoying Mariah's music.
