I'd add "We're Not Making Love Anymore" with Michael Bolton. Also, the original Dave Hall remix of Dreamlover has always been available (both at the time of release and on the MC30 EP); it was re-titled the "Bam Jam Soul".

The single at the time was released as "The Roof (Back In Time)", so maybe she always intended for a subtitle? I agree this hits to hit streaming ASAP.

Completely agree with Loverboy. My other three would be:

1. Here We Go Around Again on the debut
2. Can You Hear Me on Emotions
3. Slipping Away on Daydream

He is a gem isn't he? He also sent me the beautiful bottle green version of the debut album when it was released for MC30. Thank you so much Bobby A, you are a dear soul.

We need to be careful here when talking about Big Energy. The original version of the song sampled Genius of Love, not Fantasy. Just in the same way that Fantasy itself sampled Genius of Love. The rules seem to be quite clear that Mariah would only be credited if airplay/sales exceed that of the original which, in the US at least, appears to have not happened (yet). I believe she is credited in the UK as it is the remix that features Mariah which is currently receiving airplay and being purchased, enabling it to chart.

If it really is affecting you so much then send a note to the account to make them aware, if you haven't already.

Re: Did Mariah actually write The Roof (100,225) (100,226) by Bill from the UK

That's not quite accurate. Mariah wrote the lyrics by herself, the music was written by herself and the Trackmasters (Jean Claude Oliver, Samuel Barnes, Cory Rooney). The Roof, as many know, samples "Shook Ones (Part II)" by Mobb Deep which in turn was written by Albert Johnson and Kejuan Muchita. So, songwriters for The Roof are as follows:

Lyrics: Carey
Music: Barnes, Carey, Johnson, Muchita, Oliver, Rooney

I know the B word is banned but a very Happy Birthday to my dear Mariah. Thank you as always for every joy you have given to my life. If only you knew the impact your songs have had on me.

Breakdown is just pure class. Such an understated, elegant, and sincere composition. The absolute highlight of Butterfly for me.

Joachim I loved your post. Congratulations on the apartment, so nice to hear how happy it has made you. It resonated with me because I too have a lovely apartment on the top floor with a South facing balcony, so I know what a pleasure it can be to have your morning coffee with Mariah. It's a joy I often allow myself too. The weather in the UK has been lovely recently, and I often have my breakfast and read the newspaper with Mariah playing inside and gently flowing outside onto the balcony.

Memoirs is cohesive and consistent, but that's also its problem. Having one producer throughout means it all sounds the same after a while. The finger snaps are already pretty dated.

Re: Question (99,911) (99,912) by Bill from the UK

I don't believe she was the very first, but she was definitely the first artist with a large following and the first "mainstream" artist to adopt this style with the Fantasy remix. Since then, as we know, every Tom Dick and Harry has had a guest rapper on their singles.

Re: These 3 remixes (99,899) (99,902) by Bill from the UK
(Saturday 12 March 2022; 21:42)
I was listening to the I Still Believe MC30 EP on a long train ride the other day. I must say, Mariah really went to town with the remixes. The Pure Imagination and Stevie J mixes were completely re-sung and the only thing they had in common with the original was the title. The incorporation of the Willy Wonka song was genius. Then of course the Morales club mix is euphoric and upbeat, with a few new ad libs and alternate takes of lines from the album version. And then as you mention Bobby A, there's the King's Mix and the Eve of Souls mix which were just anthems. All included new vocals and mix was different from the one before. Just superb. And of course, the original is understated and beautiful in its own right.

Re: JD (99,882) (99,888) by Bill from the UK

I'm unsure how involved MC was with JD's remix of Never Forget You. She's always stated the first time they worked together was for ABMB. I think JD was perhaps just drafted in to remix NFY and that was it. The vocals were not re-sung or anything, so I doubt they even met in the studio at that time.

There's no denying ABMB was a magic combination. Even more so than We Belong Together in my view. It is truly one of her best ever songs.

No, she wore the black and white checked ones in the With You video. Also during Charmbracelet she wore jeans.
