With the money, I don't understand it. If Mariah hasn't financially secure, then I don't know who has. She is finanacially free since 90/91. I'm gonna to listen to the unplugged album and enjoy it to the fullest.

Yeah, I also think the song gets better and better. [E=MC2] had so much potential, so many radio-friendly songs.

"No one can top that. Vision of Love is the proof of that. Of course I want her success in the future, but she has proven so much at this point that it's almost not human."

So true. And "Vision of Love" still blows me away. What an intro to the music world for a 20 age young Mariah. Magical, genius and unsurpassed.

The Heartbreaker-Honey part was cool. I also liked the Butterfly t-shirt from Bryan and the dancers. The audience seemed to have fun.

Every time I watch a movie with young Frances O'Connor I think she looks a bit like Mariah. Especially the scene on the beach with Brendan Fraser on "Bedazzeled". Just something funny I wanted to share.

Randy, I know what you mean. I think the ones who grew up with her music or "know" Mariah for so long have another view on certain things. But we always want her to "win" and that she gives the best she can. I haven't watched the performance yet, I hope I can find it online today. I'm glad that most of you liked her gig.

I would also love a country album from Mariah. "Right to Dream" and "Help me make it trough the night" are wonderful. What I love about Mariah is, that she can do any music genre and sounds phenomenel. Country and Jazz [are] complete different styles, but Mariah can do both of them. I'm even curious about the rock-grunge album.

I really enjoyed to read the link with the charts from 97. Good music, I could listen to all the songs today with a smile. I'm so happy to have witnessed the 90ies music. But I can't believe it's been 25 years since Butterfly was released. I remember it, as it was yesterday. I love the two new remixes, it takes me back to a better time. Almost like the time machine from "Doc Brown". The live versions of "Butterfly" and "My All" are very emotional and so good, although well-known by the lambily. Butterfly is the perfect album for autumn. Thanks to Mariah for giving us the anniversary edition for Butterfly. It's good for the soul.

Re: If Butterfly single was released (101,241) (101,243) by MusicfanJ from Germany

Excatly, it was released in Europe. I remember it was played a lot on MTV but didn't chart high compared to "Honey". So I also think "Butterfly" wouldn't have been a "hit" in the US at that time. "Honey" and "My all" were the number ones, rightly so. I would have loved to see "The roof" at number one back then, maybe on the US charts.

But all the live performances with "Butterfly" and the video playing on MTV, the many interviews with MC, it was wonderful. So many good memories. The music generally had another quality.

Re: Not Mystical now (101,161) (101,164) by MusicfanJ from Germany

In the 90ies I started to listen to R. Kelly because of "I believe I can fly" like so many did. But since I know what an evil man he is, I can't listen to his songs any more. When he started to look like a "gangsta rapper" around 2000 with the explicit lyrics many thought he's no good, but that in reality he's such a monster is for me a reason I can't stand his music anymore. Plus his singing quality was indeed overrated. I prefer the good old Teddy Pendergrass.

With Mystikal I never owned music from him. "Don't stop" is a cool, fun song. But yes without him the song would be even better. Only Mariah would be a dream. The same with "Last night a DJ saved my life". Fabulous' part was good but with Busta Rhymes it was a bit too much for my taste.

"Clown" is so cool. I love the lyrics and the whole song. That song is somehow so different for a Mariah song, but it makes it even more special. Really a jewel.

Sounds like good memories. When I was a teen/twen I loved amusement parks. It was such a happy, carefree time back in the 90ies. It's good to see that Mariah is having a good time with her kids. They have grown so fast. Roc totally looks like young MC. Very sweet.

I also love Toni Braxton. She's one of the artists that made me a soul/RnB fan. "You're making me high" were my song back then. "Unbreak my heart" was a big hit in Germany, it was played everyday with the video. The same with "Spanish Guitar". How I miss real music like that.

It's the only album from MC which I don't have in my collection. Maybe I should change that. I love all her ballads, but the tracklist was a bit disappointing for a fan. For non-fans or casual Mariah listeners it's a good compilation.

Indeed. Such a beautiful song. Luther and Mariah sounded so good. That was music. Soul from the heart. The live version is one of my favourites too.

"She has to stop with the r&b/hip hop." Something I would like too. More soulful songs, Jazz, a fun pop-song, Gospel. But I fear Mariah isn't ready to leave the "fresh RnB sound" behind. Unplugged or a duet album or with covers would be great. That would be a big surprise. Maybe one day, I hope so.

Back then, I hated the song "Ironic" and this kind of music by Alanis. It was just "screaming" for my ears and not real singing. I always changed the radio station when the song was played. And it was played a lot. Lol. But then the next song was "Fantasy", "ABMB" , "Open Arms" or "One Sweet Day" and everything was fine. Well, it is just a matter of taste. Isn't it? But my vote goes to "Daydream".

Mariah actually deserved the Grammys for "Daydream" more than any other artist at that time. Yes, there was a good competion back then, but we are talking about "Daydream". For "Fantasy" alone there should have been the award. It was Mariah's year musically, she was 24/7 on MTV, on the radio stations around the world. And then there was "One sweet day". It was Mariah mania, maybe this is one reason why they didn't get her one Grammy. Plus that her husband at that time was the boss of Sony. Pure envy. She had everything, the look, the voice, the power.
