Mariah and Luis duet (101,010) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Sunday 21 August 2022; 19:45)
I really would like to know how this hidden duet with Luis Miguel sounds. Didn't she say that their voices didn't match well together? I remember the Whitney and Enrique Iglesias duet which I liked. At least we have The Rarities.

Re: Article: Mariah Carey wants to trademark "Queen of Christmas" (101,004) (101,006) by MusicfanJ from Germany

Well, that's something I would like to know too. Hard to believe it's the same woman. Fame and money is one thing, but I prefer the Mariah who's love for music and artistry is stronger than for money. To "milk the cow called Christmas" gets boring. Why not make new music with real musicians and a band? If even Lady Gaga could do a Jazz album why not MC? Or something new, but please no more Christmas albums. 5 albums/editions with Christmas (The Star soundtrack and animated movie included) are enough.

It really could be an idea of Stella back then. That were dark times for fans/lambs. I hope I never hear something from those people again.

Yes, is it even true or another rumour? Why not trademark "diva"? Just kidding. How about new music? Or Rarities 2? I would love a surprise in autumn.

Only Mariah (100,978) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Monday 15 August 2022; 10:42)
Hi MCA fellows, I hope you are all doing well. I really had some tough weeks. Everything was too much and I can't stand the heatwave. Anyway it's always the same. I love many artists but only Mariah can heal and give peace to the soul (and ears lol). Corny but true. You know it. I started to listen to "I'll be there", the whole Daydream album plus "Hero" and Anytime you need a friend" live at Tokyo. Every time I'm blown away, only Mariah.

Trey Lorenz (100,974) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Sunday 14 August 2022; 19:37)
I just discovered his debut album. I own the Mr. Mista album but somehow I never thought about his debut. I think it's amazing how Mariah is giving her background vocals on "Just to be close to you" and "Always in love". (By AIL I get a little "Everything fades way" vibe at the end, heavenly.) How I miss real RNB music with class, pure and from the heart. Trey Lorenz and Mariah were another dream team musically.

I love it too. But I always get sad while listening to it because of the 9/11 tribute. But yes, wonderful performance and medley.

"MC had 8 albums, an ugly marriage and all the pressure that comes with fame and money before she turned 30."

So true and that was too much even for her. It would be for every human. What she has reached and experienced before 30 is unbelievable. Only Elvis, The Beatles, Michael and Whitney have had "similar" experiences I guess. I never judge her, I just want her to be happy and healthy. Musically she has reached everything and beyond, but to know she is really happy and taking care of herself would be something I wish from my deepest heart. So many of the greatest were so sad. But a few can be superstars while still grounded and relaxed after all and enjoy it. I just hope that Mariah is happy.

Yes, a bit creepy because we talked about her not long ago. I will always love "Grease" and the duet with Mariah. I always enjoyed the music of the classy woman. (Physical still gets played very often on "my" radio station.) Olivia will be missed. Almost all the "good ones" are gone. So sad.

Article about Honey (100,913) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Saturday 6 August 2022; 14:29)
It's so true, it's really as sweet as it was 25 years later. It's one of her best up-tempos right after Fantasy. It still sounds so fresh, soulful. Mariah at her best. Plus one of the best videos ever. I just love the Bond girl idea. Honey is just phenomenal. Perfect sample, perfect remixes. I miss that Mariah. (Fun, independent and carefree.) Yes she was so young, I know. I will always remember when the song was played on the radio 97, after 3 seconds I knew it was Mariah with the new song. And the video was everywhere. Sweet memories of the late summer 97.

Yes, nice list. "Hopelessly Devoted to You with ONJ." How I love this song. When it was realesed (I have it on VHS) lol I watched it over and over again. They were both so sweet, and Mariah was so classy while sexy and just fun. Great duet.

The last time I listened to Beyoncé was with Destiney's Child. I loved the group. Then her debut was okay, but not overwhelming for my taste. A good RnB album, but nothing more. I will never understand the hype with that woman. Her music doesn't get my heart, pretty boring. I always preferred Alicia Keys or India Arie when she came out. More soul, more voice.

The SNL performance is one of my favourites too. Mariah at her best.

Stacey, I wish you a good start with your new "family members" the kittens. I'm sure they have a lot of energy. I have a male cat, he's relaxed right now listening to Coffee Time Jazz. Cats have good taste.

Re: Thoughts: which album do you think MC dislikes (100,806) (100,820) by MusicfanJ from Germany

"She seemed pretty carefree and happy. The tour was a lot of fun. And I liked that her style was super casual." That's right. It was really a cool time as a fan during that time. I became a fan with Daydream as I often said. "Butterfly" was a big surprise and of course genius, but with "Rainbow" it was just so much fun. She was one of the biggest stars out there, but seemed so humble and sweet. Everyone loved her. Her videos were playing all the time on MTV and VIVA (German music TV). I loved the many specials from her, I still have them on VHS. Lol. Good times.

They were an absolute dreamteam professionally. I wonder if there are still songs from the past which we don't know. I need "Rarities Part two".

Oh my is that sweet. Fantasy and Daydream were the reason I became a fan. So many good memories with "Fantasy". I'll always love the "roller skates" outfit. Is there a chance that it will be on in autumn or by the end of year? I really need this for my living room.

Great question. I love Mariah's covers. I pick "You light up my life" by Debby Boone. I know the original is allready perfect, but I imagine Mariah's voice would also be perfect on it. Evertime I listen to the song I hear Mariah's voice on my mind.

"But she was almost a parody of herself. Absolutely heart breaking." Yes I thought the same. It was not easy to watch. I really wish Mariah would heal from whatever it causes the "problems". She has all the money and time to take care of herself. If she feels so bad, why not take some time without that showbiz circus. And then come back healthy and authentic. I hope she feels better soon. "After every storm a rainbow appears."

No I don't want her to retire. I think you misunderstood what I wrote/meant. I miss real musicians, a real band not just only beats. It has nothing to do with fantasy, it's a matter of taste nothing more. I like "Caution" too but it's not my favourite. If you love "Caution" that's cool. I'm still happy with "The Rarities" and maybe one can hope for a Rarities Part two.

I 100 % agree with everything you said Terna. Love your post.

"Caution", while being a very good record, was vocally not a "Mariah Carey" album. This is so true as well. A Mariah Carey record is something different. "Caution" is fun and nice to listen to but her trademark was missing.

MC could do a "Butterfly Part two" with real musicians and real back-up singers, if she wants to. Even if she hasn't the voice from her power years anymore, she is still Mariah Carey and can create magic with music and lyrics.

An album with RnB, Jazz elements, Retro Soul and yes a fun Pop song would be a great mixture. She is a legend because of the power voice songs and the typical Mariah melodies. She was already a legend at age 26, that's very special and unique. MC is unique on every way and I mean that only positive. Everyone can work with a "hot" producer but no one can do a Mariah Carey album. She's on another league. That's why a lot of people have high expectations' on her. Yes, she broke all records and can do only songs with JD or 5 songs with new rappers, but she could also release a new masterpiece.
