I'm a fan of Mariah since Daydream came out.

You're right, she seemed often unhappy/unsecure during that time. "Looking in" says it all. But she also had a magic aura which I loved. The concert in NY was phenomenal. Anyway the pressure of being on top of the music throne, the envy of many while she broke record after record with the sales and number ones. The controlling Tommy. Maybe there are a lot of bad memories, I'm sure this is one reason Daydream is not so praised by herself. I became a fan because of Daydream, so I will love it forever.

Caution is good, but Daydream is really on another sphere. Daydream is a blockbuster part two. Andrew named Music Box a "blockbuster" I loved that comparison. So I use it here. "Fantasy" alone is one of the best fun pop songs that exists. It's genius. I will never get tired of it. There is a reason why Daydream caused Mariah mania in 95 and 96. Maybe the Grammy debacle still frustrates her, I don't know.

On the subjects of tours (103,872) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Wednesday 25 October 2023; 20:00)
Yes, 100 thumbs up for this post. Absolutely on point.

For example, I liked the debut album from Sam Smith, but since I saw his latest "performance" on stage, it's hard for me to listen to his music. Madonna and Sam Smith are very vulgar and it's just annoying. They should tour together. Lol.

On a side note: Our ministery of education has forbidden the "gendern" for the elemantary schools. There is hope. I don't know how it's in English but in German it's just grammatically wrong with the gender thing and not needed at all.

I like the dress too. It looks beautiful. Mariah looks beautiful. A red dress is always wow. The pictures with her kids are super cute.

Einstein is a No No (103,779) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Tuesday 17 October 2023; 11:03)
I just read the word "Einstein" and thought it was a new hot producer in America. Lol. So funny. But indeed the name of the album E=MC2 fits perfect. To call it Einstein is really a no no.

Good questions. I had to laugh because of "Why did you allow MC to record I Don't and Save The Day?"

George Michael / 3-words (103,669) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Thursday 5 October 2023; 18:38)
That's cool. A similar story with a band member: When Mariah did the Charmbracelet tour, I was at the same table with the guitar man. I forgot his name. (Shame on me.) He was very relaxed and nice. But I was too nervous to ask him something. So I was just smiling and talking to my best friend who came with me at that evening. Lol. To be in the same room and have drinks with George Michael's band sounds exciting too.

(Wednesday 4 October 2023; 21:18)
Well, it's not so popular here too. I mean compared to "Last Christmas" or "Do they know it's Christmas". But it's always played on the radio. Funny that you mention the movie. In "Home Alone" it was the first time I heard it. Since then I really love it. Happy memories from a 90ies kid.

Reflections of my expectations have come to wither (103,660) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Wednesday 4 October 2023; 12:39)
100 thumbs up for your post. It's perfectly written. The people can say what they want, but really nobody on this earth would doubt that Mariah is an icon. She's a music legend. She already was at a very young age. I have novels (not about music) where she is mentioned, just normal novels. It's crazy. Mariah is a living pop culture in person. I can't imagine what it's like. What she's achieved is incredible and can't be repeated. "Superwoman" is nothing compared to her. Honestly there's only one Mariah. I saw her four times live and I never experienced something like it again. Her music is one thing, but her aura live was enchanting. She's got the whole package. So now I stop praising. Lol.

(Wednesday 4 October 2023; 12:01)
Yes, she always had a great sense of humour. I always loved her humour from the beginning. She's such a funny one. With the "defrosting" it's hilarious. Bravo Mariah.

I bought her best of album because of "Rockin' around the Christmas tree". I love this Christmas song. Brenda Lee is a real Rock & Roll lady. Brenda, Wham and Mariah are just perfect for Christmas and always will. Good music will never be outdated, classics will be loved forever.

"They are for us, the diehard fans. I'll gladly take these gifts. I can't wait for #Daydream30." Oh yes, absolutely. I'm so thankful that she did a Christmas tour in Europe and I could see her in Germany again. It was the best, pure joy and fun. I love the Christmas time. I love Mariah, so I'm fine with it. That she is doing Christmas concerts this year is fantastic for the "US Lambs". I'm sure it will be wonderful.

Is it time to get rid of physical media? (103,631) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Monday 2 October 2023; 10:43)
Here the same. I would never give away my collection. I collect music and movies in general, it's a hobby. I have so many memories with the music collection (of course especially with Mariah). It's a big treasure for me. Streaming is boring to me, it's okay for just a quick listen. But to play a phycical media is something different. I enjoy and appreciate it much more. I love the booklets, the art of it. The same with books and E-Reader. I will always prefer a real book. What I do like is to watch Mariah videos online. But it's "dangerous", sometimes one can't stop because Mariah is too good and beautiful.

Prisoner (103,616) by MusicfanJ from Germany

'Prisoner" is indeed special. I love the almost 80ies sound of it, I love her rap. For me the song is just fun.

Drake gets his 12th number one (103,591) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Wednesday 27 September 2023; 16:54)
Yes, I'm not worried at all because of Drake. Mariah is on another league. I only know his "hotline blink" song. Lol. With Rihanna it was the same. No comparison to Mariah and the success as a whole.

How sweet. Such a lovely pic. I'm crazy about cats too, I have a catboy. Yes, ginger cats are so cute. Mariah's kids look so happy with the new family members. I have to repeat, beautiful pic.

Daydream is Mariah's magnum opus (103,477) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Thursday 14 September 2023; 09:53)
No. TEOM was a hit, but Daydream was huge. Just think of Fantasy, One Sweet Day and ABMB alone. The years 95 to 96 were on another level than 2005.

(Tuesday 12 September 2023; 10:30)
I completely agree with you Jamie and Andrew. That time was so special, and that she did write and produce the songs on Music Box was the best thing to do. Andrew wrote Music Box is like a blockbuster, I love the comparison. It's true, it's her blockbuster. The album that changed everything. Mariah knows it and hasn't forget it. She was simply genius, the whole production and team on point.

Taking care of herself (103,453) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Tuesday 12 September 2023; 10:08)
"Maybe reliving the [Music Box] era has given her the push she needed to remember how great she was." Yes, I think she was surprised too. Deep in her heart, she knows, but to hear and see it while working on MB30 must be an big moment. I'm completely overwhelmed again. You're right, she looks fantastic and healthy. I love her black and white shirt as an hommage to "Dreamlover". She looks very natural, relaxed and it suits her so well. That is all I ever wanted. A happy and healthy Mariah.

Mariah on Twitter (X) (103,413) by MusicfanJ from Germany
(Sunday 10 September 2023; 10:36)
Mariah: "I'll never forget creating this record, fully immersing myself in the music that would change my life and connect me with you, the lambily, in a way that bonded us forever." With Music Box she really showed the world there's another superstar, that will stay and make history. When I read the sentence "bonded us forever", I really feel this. I became a fan because of Daydream, but I knew Mariah because of MTV playing "Hero" and "Without You" every day which I loved. I was very young back then, but I knew that she was so special. Her voice, her beauty. Indescribable. And here we are with MB30. This is a moment as Mariah would say.

I thought the same yesterday. How the very young Mariah sung "My prayer" is unbelievable. So much soul and depth in her voice. I love when she sings classic or retro songs. That version was on repeat yesterday evening. I can't get enough of her magical voice. She really takes me to another sphere. Some fan once wrote, it's like dreaming while awake.

MB30 reaction (103,390) by MusicfanJ from Germany

Good morning everyone. I just listened to "My prayer" and got goosebumps when she sings tonight. This is so brilliant. When music does something like this, it's so special. I'm in Mariah heaven since MB30. I also feel like getting this happy 90ies experience back, feeling good. It's great to read we all enjoy it so much.
