He missed the fact that "I'll be there" was the only #1 hit from the MTV Unplugged show's history.

This column is an absolute must read for old lambs, new lambs, and aspiring lambs alike. I'll keep saying it with every MC installment. Young Mariah wanted to be a radio artist. She wanted to hear her songs on the radio. Never did she imagine the blockbuster success she'd accomplish.

I think 2-3 very minor rhinoplasties have had an impact on her tone to some extent. But Jamie, I agree that her technical approach changed from album to album, opting for yes, a more relaxed delivery leading all the way to Rainbow.

Re: Christmas BPCH (Magic Continues) (99,044) (99,047) by Chicago Lamb from USA

You guys are looking at "The Magic Continues" wrong. Think of it as a promo for FILAC. That's one hell of a platform to promote a new song, don't you think? And don't be surprised if Mariah shows up every year on Apple+ or an equivalent to promote a new song. Star power. BPCH wasn't bad at all with the band and production. Ya'll need to stop obsessing over her tone. Happy holidays everyone!

Grammy snub in Spoken Word Album Category (98,992) by Chicago Lamb from USA
(Tuesday 23 November 2021; 21:24)
The Scammies strike again. Unbelievable. I've listened to the TMOMC audio book 3-4 times already. This particular snub in the Spoken Word Album Category is just abhorrent.

I love this guy's deep appreciation for the work and Mariah's craft. The history tid-bits make his Hot 100 column a compelling read. I couldn't imagine a better way to re-visit the nostalgia from a time I became locked-in as a huge lamb.

For webmaster (98,699) by Chicago Lamb from USA
(Monday 4 October 2021; 15:26)
I was unable to connect to the website for a few days. I thought MCArchives was done. The web browser said "unable to connect to MCArchives". Other browsers failed to connect also. Was the site down or was it something on my end? [Webmaster: There were problems with the root SSL certificate. This has been fixed this morning.]

The Meaning of MC audio book (98,634) by Chicago Lamb from USA
(Monday 20 September 2021; 14:15)
Does anyone here enjoy listening to the audio book of TMOMC as much as me? It's great on a plane where I've listened through it at least 3 times now. With each listen I get something new. For example, she's really warm when it comes to Brenda K. Star. What an honor to be a part of Mariah's legacy. Anyway, Mariah's soothing voice is great, even when I dose off for a nap. It's like listening to your favorite album over and over.

Re: Music Box tour footage NYC (98,565) (98,566) by Chicago Lamb from USA
(Tuesday 31 August 2021; 13:55)
As a young music consumer in the 90's I, like legions of fans, had to hear Mariah sing everything and anything. So when re-recorded remixes were released, live performances were VHS'd, I collected and collected. I probably own 250+ Mariah releases on CD/vinyl. Thirty years into her career, the collectable and "Have to Hear" moments aren't as abundant. That's what makes this concert footage so special. Takes me back to a time when her voice was high, powerful and pristine. Normally I won't listen to a whole bootleg concert, but this was irresistible.

The Meaning of Mariah audio book error (98,293) by Chicago Lamb from USA
(Monday 28 June 2021; 15:04)
So, I'm listening to the audio book for the 2nd time and I noticed an error. Mariah talks about her #1 song [I'll be there], but refers to it as her "5th #1", which as any good lamb knows it's her 6th. Has anyone else noticed if the book mirrors the same error? How could Mariah herself have made such a mistake?

Re: New material (97,939) (97,941) by Chicago Lamb from USA

I don't mind Andrew's presence here. He's entertaining, fun to read and ultimately should be taken with a grain of salt. Don't like nastiness? Don't engage it. Only want positivity? Don't read his posts. However, he shouldn't be allowed to wield threats to Eric or anyone else on the board. So it's a balancing act our awesome WebMaster has had to undertake.

We learned very early this year that Mariah signed a huge deal in partnership with AppleTV for a Christmas special and a nice big budget. Lambs to be fed quite nicely this holiday season.

"Hark The Herald Angels Sing" from Good Morning America circa 1992, perhaps could be a bonus. This is one of my top favorite live vocal performances of all time. I think its Eric's too, our webmaster.

Re: Cool On You (97,309) (97,310) by Chicago Lamb from USA
(Saturday 6 February 2021; 13:47)
I absolutely love "Cool On You". What don't you like about "Mesmerized"? That's another I keep on repeat with its disco/BeeGee's arrangement. I also love "Lullaby of Birdland". Anything new that Mariah sings gets my attention. I know everyone is crazy for "Everything Fades Away", "Do you Think of Me", and "Slipping Away". But I am a legacy Lamb and wore those out long ago when they came out originally. I had the Dreamlover single on cassette back in '93. So, I skip them now.

Re: Cosmetic surgery (97,073) (97,075) by Chicago Lamb from USA
(Friday 1 January 2021; 15:45)
I feel like her nose has been played with. Sometimes I think it's her makeup a'la sharp high-lighting and other times the tip looks to be augmented. There's a non invasive procedure she may have done. There are definitely fillers in her upper-cheeks. She still looks great and the fact that we can't pin point it, is testament to that. She's had cool sculpting or something akin to it in her mid section. A girl has got to stay youthful looking. Happy New Year to all.

Article: Mariah Carey's "Christmas" back atop Hot 100 (97,048) by Chicago Lamb from USA

Re: the last paragraph here. Did I read correctly on twitter that Taylor Swift's single was put on sale for .49c and that was how she was able to claim the top spot? I suppose if it were a tactic used by Mariah's label to nab the #1 spot for a week, we'd all be cheering. Happy 2021 everyone!
