New low? (102,714) by Jamie from UK
(Thursday 11 May 2023; 19:51)
Maybe she had a cold or viral infection, as during [One sweet day] that's is one serious decline in vocal ability, surely if that was the true state of her voice she wouldn't be arranging to sing one of her biggest hits with Boys to Men [Boyz II Men]. Yes her voice has declined over the years but to not be able to sing at all, I don't believe it's all due to her current vocals something else is at play here like illness.

One positive (102,707) by Jamie from UK

Seems strange she chose to showcase Till the End of Time after all this time. Wonder if there's some meaning behind it?

The whistle or the complete voice? (102,673) by Jamie from UK
(Sunday 7 May 2023; 18:08)
I'd say operate as the whistle is only 1% of a song

What is your initial fan story? (102,634) by Jamie from UK
(Wednesday 26 April 2023; 20:04)
I was watching the chart show on TV in the UK when Vision of Love came on, I was mesmerised by her voice. I remember seeing Love Takes Time and Can't Let Go on that same show too. I don't remember hearing Someday, Emotions and Make it Happen. I was a big Madonna fan at that point and my wall was covered in posters, I began to build up a collection of Mariah posters which were sparse in the UK in the early days, gradually she took over and Madonna was gone lol.

I used to record Mariah songs off the radio as I was only 11 at the time so didn't have my own disposable money to buy CD's. I loved being a Mariah fan back then as no one had heard of her, and I'd say she's an American soul singer.

A few years later in 93 my mate got Music Box on CD and made me a copy on cassette which I still have. I was truly hooked by now. Hence why Music Box is my favourite album.

A few months later I got a part time job and started to build my collection. I'd go into Manchester every chance I got, the music shops there had a huge singles section and was able to pick up the majority of her singles to date including USA imports and the odd Australian import. I went to record fairs and found even more rare CD's and records. Every chance I got I'd buy something. I miss collecting CD's and getting every version I could it's a shame times have changed.

Legacy (102,608) by Jamie from UK
(Saturday 22 April 2023; 13:51)
I think we take Mariah's legacy for granted. Yes AIWFCIY is one of her huge songs, but it also belongs to a main focal season each year. People still love her classic songs, Hero, Without You, Always Be My Baby, Vision of Love, Emotions, I'll Be There, We Belong Together, need I go on.

The problem now is she isn't relevant in mainstream culture but that doesn't mean people don't like her or remember what great songs she has. There was a time when she was at number 1 in albums, singles and home video all at the same time. And like every singer their mainstream time comes and goes, it's just the way of the music world, one thing I can guarantee we would be having this conversation about other singers. Even Whitney wasn't mainstream anymore but everyone remembers how great she was and all her great songs. God forbid Mariah would die tomorrow she would be celebrated for the quality music she brought more so to the 90's and also into 20's.

A singer can continue making music for their fan base but they will never reach the heights of their "mainstream" time.

Maybe an EP or a Maxi Single? (102,603) by Jamie from UK
(Friday 21 April 2023; 20:16)
I disagree, if you're a fan you always have existing albums to listen to, Mariah disappearing for a while isn't gonna change her commercial success at this stage of her career. She's never gonna reach the highs of her earlier career at this point, I'd rather her take her time and do something quality than rush something out. For all we know she might be getting advice to take a new direction in her career, she might be trying to get herself in better shape mentally and physically to appeal to more of a wider audience now she's older. Maybe she's realised she's been erratic at times and has lost touch with the general public. Or maybe she's in a deep depression over her voice not working the way it once did. We will never know what's truly going on with her, and she's in a position where she can do as she pleases, she has nothing to prove anymore. Rest assured though people like Mariah will never just disappear, she has her legacy already she's done extremely well to continue to be in the public eye at this point. Cut the girl some slack she's already given us more than some artists do in their entire career. God bless Mariah and hope all is well with her.

"Emotions" album appreciation (102,586) by Jamie from UK
(Wednesday 19 April 2023; 21:19)
Emotions album is one of my favourites, it oozes soul, her voice is so warm and the ballads are perfect. Till the End of Time is a masterpiece, it's beautiful. And one of my all time favourite songs is Can't Let Go. The video portrays a classy Mariah, something about her in that video is different she shows so much passion. Her image was so refined during this album wholesome, relatable and appealing.

Mariah vs MC (102,399) by Jamie from UK
(Sunday 26 March 2023; 01:52)
Ok as a 90's fan of Mariah and a continued fan to this day, I've always struggled with Mariah and MC. Whilst I like them both I'm more swayed towards Mariah. I've always wondered what she thinks, as Mariah did she always want to break away and be MC, or now does she long to be Mariah again? I say this because she always says how controlled she was, yet now every opportunity she gets she shows pics etc of her earlier career. Watching her earlier videos she is so natural and composed something I don't think can be forced or mimicked. So I often wonder who is the the real Mariah/MC? Don't get me wrong I love both, but I often wonder what happened that made the drastic change, I don't believe it was all Tommy as he could have dressed her in all he liked, but like I said you can't mimic those natural early performances. I get people change, I've changed myself, but not so drastically like she has. I always wonder who the happiest one was. To me she looks more happy in the early Mariah days when she was more wholesome, but would love to hear your spin on things. This all came from watching ATYNAF from Proctors Theatre, which to me is one of her best performances. I'm not looking to be judgmental I'm honestly just looking for peoples spin on things as it genuinely interests me.

I hate to say it but I was very disappointed when I heard #Beautiful for the first time. It's still not one of my favourites tbh.

Someday AMA 1991 (102,356) by Jamie from UK
(Sunday 19 March 2023; 04:39)
Just watched Mariah Someday live at the AMA's in 91 on [YouTube]. My next suggested video was I Don't, how did [YouTube] come up with that. It was actually quite scary to see the change. Mariah always said how shy she was back then, but looking back she actually had more confidence and charisma then. Maybe because she had the voice at her disposal. But it's easy to see why she became America's sweetheart back then, she truly was amazing.

Brenda K Starr (102,297) by Jamie from UK
(Monday 6 March 2023; 21:06)
I just watched a virtual interview with Brenda K Starr from 2021, it was great to see her be so lovely and complementary about Mariah. It was nice to see how much she does actually care about Mariah although they have fallen out at times. She has nothing but praise for Mariah and wishes her well in all she does. I think it must be hard when you have been that close to someone and they are propelled into super stardom, as the artist doesn't always have control over their life.

If you could... (102,145) by Jamie from UK
(Saturday 28 January 2023; 18:38)
If you could have one extra album squeezed in over the years where would you want it? I think I’d have liked another album squeezed in before Daydream. Music box has always been my favourite and I think with those vocals and adult contemporary/pop style I would have liked another album of similar style.

I don't think we will every truly know truth behind all this, but I'd take a Mariah and Walter collaboration any day. Oh and 1993/1994 Mariah too. That's my favourite era of hers.
