New song? (103,231) by Edward from USA
(Monday 21 August 2023; 00:49)
It's called "All to Myself". It's one of the Pepsi ringtones she made back when she got emancipated and changed her name to Mimi.

The Price Sisters and Melonie - underrated gems (103,214) by Edward from USA

It is perfection indeed. Even though I discovered "Everything Fades Away" years later since it wasn't part of the US version of Music Box, I've placed it at the end of "All I've Ever Wanted", but it always sounds out of place to me. It's a good thing it is now on "The Rarities". "All I've Ever Wanted" vocals are insane.

One can only dream. Many artists have had their nodules treated surgically like Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith, Tove Lo, Adele, Björk, Shirley Manson, Keith Urban, John Mayer and Rod Stewart.

I was just about to post that. I don't see the reason for her to lie either. She was very nice about her journey with MC in one of her most recent interviews.

There are going to be many virtual artists like Gorillaz, but I don't think real artists are going to disappear. While a great song is a great song for most casual listener, fans will always appreciate and look for the human connection. AI is going to be incorporated in everything, we're going to have to deal with it with laws and regulations.

I had forgotten about "There for Me". We also need "All In Your Mind" vault version. I'll never understand how great quality songs like "One Night" and "Right Here on My Own" were kept hidden for so long.

The genie is out and the bottle has been destroyed. Disruption has started. The tweaking artists do in the studio is already being done with AI. Artist will eventually end up licensing their voices too and we'll have AI albums from current and deceased artists. The music scene, as we know it, is about to change drastically.

I agree, but Mariah AI "Last Chance" is different. Most Mariah's AI content doesn't sound like her because they need a base voice and then replaces it with her voice. The problem is that AI will still use the base voice style, enunciation,, diction and accent. "Last Chance" was written and produced by Mariah, the whistles at the beginning were originally sung by her. On top of that, the base voice is singing it as Mariah would, so when the voices are switched, it works perfectly. I haven't been impressed with any other Mariah AI covers, but "Last Chance" is perfect for me. I dropped "Closed My Eyes" and "Save the Horrible Day" from "The Rarities" and inserted "Last Chance", "Help Me Make It", "Randy's Theme" and Almost Home", in chronological order of course. Now "The Rarities" is just perfect.

I've always thought Mariah had written "All Cried Out", but it turns out she didn't. It's a remake from the 80's. I'm stunned.

There's a possibility Mariah actually remade "All Cried Out" for herself, shelved it and later produced it for Allure. A demo wouldn't make sense now since the original singer sings it in the same key and could be used as a reference. If Mariah didn't remake for one of her a projects, the chances that there's a demo out there are very slim.

This is the best AI Mariah's voice cover so far. It helps that it is sung in her style. Just made my own Mp3 just in case they take it down. It's simply amazing. We need The Rarities 2 right now.

4 years, 8 months and 19 days to be exact. Basically 5 years. I think Mariah has the theme album and the "Someone's Ugly Daughter" album ready. It seems to be she's having a tough time finding a label willing to invest given the fact that she doesn't sell much anymore.

At least she can still say: "Hey, hey, hey" and "And you, and you, and you". Don't count her out.

Did you just have an epiphany? Of course most of us guys here at MCArchives are not gay. The fact that 99 percent of her male fans love rainbow t-shirts, butterfly hair ornaments and some use MC perfume is pure coincidence. To avoid stereotypes I just use pink three times a week, but keep my MC nail polish collection hidden.

When she was defrosting leading up to last Christmas, she had ample time to be ready for decent performances during the first few shows, but we saw how unprepared she was. How many wake up calls does she need? The gay pride performance was painful to watch. It seems to be she doesn't really care anymore, which is perfectly fine. I don't see anything wrong with her enjoying the time with her family and retire with dignity. I just don't want her to keep embarrassing herself during these random performances. While the "yass queen" fans love it when she embarrass herself like that, I, instead, feel bad for her and her impressive catalog. She needs real friends who don't lie to her to keep a paycheck coming.

Had she sung it live, it would've been fine with me The fact that was the best she could do in the studio, It's very telling. I hadn't ever watched it before you mentioned it. I wish I hadn't.

Robert, I don't know if you have noticed, but Mariah is struggling even in her whisper register. I know her whisper register is not an easy one to tackle, but she's been struggling in all the facets of her voice. When you see an artist dodging notes, relying heavily on their backup singers, pre-recorded tracks, and expecting the audience to sing for them those notes they can't, it is a signal that something is deeply wrong. She's had an amazing career and she'll always have Christmas, but the Mariah we knew, yes, that Mariah post prime, is also gone. I've always thought she could get better should she discipline herself and put in the work, but that's up to her. I'm looking forward to Christmas now. She's the queen. Hopefully next year she'll surprise us all.

Mariah is definitely not in a good place vocally to accomplish what Taylor is doing while she's still super popular. She should've done something like that back in 2010-2013, but I guess that ship has sailed. This is just beautiful. Had she re-worked some of her hits around this time, she would've come out a winner. Sadly, Mariah can't sing two words straight these days. It is sad, but evidenced by her last performance, it is true.

I didn't even realize about the "RIP" from your post. I'm here ready to start listening to "Universal Mother" when the news of her dead just came on TV. Sinéad O'Connor and Dolores O'Riordan had very tormented lives, but their artistry was just unique and great. May she rest in peace.
