New video (104,457) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Friday 8 December 2023; 00:02)
According to Glittering Mariah on X, MC is dropping a new video featuring the Lambs tonight at midnight. Could it be the huge AIWFCIY performance during the Kansas City show?

Vocals getting better (104,444) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Thursday 7 December 2023; 00:20)
I really feel today that MC's voice was going to deteriorate anyway as she got older because of her vocal nodules. It seems now that we are always going to be in a period of her good vocals and the next year with her having bad vocals. With each album since TEOM her vocals declined some period of time between albums during live events. Also, I want to go on the record and say that her vocals during The Angels Advocate Tour were out of this world. I saw MC in Atlanta and I was blown away with high notes she was hitting that night. And that was right after the recording time of the raspy vocals on Memoirs.

It's going interesting if MC and Brenda do trade spots back and forth the remainder of the season. Or MC could take the top spot the remainder of the season. I am sure next year we get some new promotional plan so Brenda won't have a chance.

Good voice (104,431) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Wednesday 6 December 2023; 01:55)
I think that you are totally wrong this time for sure. MC would kill it on the Superbowl stage with Usher. She would move like she did in the Honey video. Debbie Allen would be hired for her 6 minute performance that would have MC moving with her male dancers to A No No/I'm That Chick mash-up.

MC's sold out Chicago show (104,430) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Wednesday 6 December 2023; 01:05)
Her voice just keeps getting better with each show. I wonder what did MC do to bring her voice back to where she actually sounds better than six months ago. Whatever you did MC, keep up with the better habits and vocal practices.

I know she is going to make the Lambs proud in 2024. I am even looking forward to a JD/BMC/JA collaboration. Muni Long's Made For Me is just a beautiful R&B ballad.

Do you think she has voice back enough join Usher on the Superbowl stage in 2024? I think so. If Usher announces MC will join him, it will be the biggest event of her career since WBT. She would be forced to drop a new song on February 9th. Just saying today trying to think positively.

Rockin' Around #1 (104,410) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Tuesday 5 December 2023; 00:57)
It seems like UMG has set a precedent this year with RATCT and its aggressive marketing strategies to get it to number #1 after 65 years. Other record labels are going to follow suit next year. Oh, no. Last Christmas will be 40 years old next Christmas. Will Last Christmas make it number #1 with Sony Legacy's help? Brenda has shown us all it takes is a new video, special guest vocalists, a couple of TV appearances, social media and shady Spotify to help get a Christmas song to number one.

Emotions formula (104,377) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Sunday 3 December 2023; 20:03)
Carole King was determined to work with MC after she declined to cover YMMFLANW. So, she flew out to New York anyway and If It's Over was born. I love the highs and lows of her vocal delivery and orgasmic climax is unbelievable and breathtaking both live and on the album. Just one more song like this would garner her 20th number one. This time let's get Sia or ILYA and Ryan Tedder to fly out New York and create a masterpiece.

Oh Santa original vs JHud/Ariana version (104,370) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Sunday 3 December 2023; 17:56)
I have always thought MC did the collaboration with Ariana and JHud just for a cute festive moment to promote the Apple Music special. They probably recorded their parts separately in different studios and sent it to MC. I don't think the collaboration made the final cut for the special. I never watched the special all the way through because I cringed how thin sounding her voice was on the songs.

Hello Eric. Thank you for all that you do to keep the board going strong all of these years. I noticed that you were still posting until 9pm Eastern time last night. Usually the last post is 6pm Eastern. Thank you for keeping the hot topic of "We lost #1" going way into the night. It was a fun way to end the night.

And what a year it has been for topics on the board. Can you think about posting on New Year's Eve the top 15 topics of 2023 with the most replies and likes? Just this November and December alone, I know Mariah vs. Brenda, We lost #1, and Emotions formula will make the list. Also, can you post the top posters for 2023? Andrew returned back in August (or was it September?) and tried to take my special guest star status. Lol.

We lost the #1 (104,350) by Robert-Anthony from United States
(Sunday 3 December 2023; 03:45)
Wow. We certainly did she this happening two weeks ago. If MC had done some special with AIWFCIY this year like a duet with Kelly Clarkson, she would have had nothing to worry about. I wish she would collaborate with other artists like she used to do. The next four weeks are going to be an intense battle for the top spot. And Tyla, water girl just dropped her new song On and On. She could take the streams away too from both songs by New Year's Eve.

MC was going for a more polished than over-produced second album. I think that she accomplished that. Tommy probably was not too happy with the end result and album sales. I am sure he told MC after MTV Unplugged that she needs a huge pop album for her third album. Hence, Music Box was created and fulfilled Tommy's desires. Her creativity just got better and better after MB. She better bring it with MC16.

The music business isn't a sweet easy going industry. Every artist will tell you that including sweet Dolly Parton. Record executives aren't playing nice when they are promoting a song to get it to number #1. There are some underhanded strategies being done behind the scenes to make it happen at the UMG executive offices. If RATCT goes to number #1, a huge television media frenzy will be made about it that week. Just my two cents from Texas.

It's the tad sprinkle of the wall of sound and rockabilly country influences combined that made it a popular Christmas song.

Thanks for the update, Edward. Seems like there is a considerable effort this year to keep MC from getting to number one or staying number one for multiple weeks this year. UMG is Brenda Lee's record label. They are really going all out this year with this huge promotional push to celebrate RATCT's 65th anniversary. But why now after 4 years of AIWFCIY being the number one Christmas song?

Well I think I know why. Some people in the music and television industry are tired of hearing MC being called the queen of Christmas. It started when MC wanted to trademark the Queen Of Christmas last year. She angered Darlene Love and Elizabeth Chan. Many in the music and television industry were angered by MC's trademark move as well. So, I feel this is their payback for MC attempting to take the queen of Christmas all for herself and from sweet Darlene Love. Everyone already feels sorrow for her how Phil Spector used her voice and she never was publicly credited on a lot the songs she did for him. Phil Spector controlled her early career and was content to leave her uncredited on the songs he did for him.

Do you think that I have hit on something?

We are going to hear Yours one day when a young new Universal Music Group executive is searching through MC's vault curious about her Island Def Jam years. I wonder if we could start a Yours campaign to get heard sooner. My Rarities II X campaign has gotten me 107 extra followers since August.
