Never Forget You and One and Only are amazing tracks!
But the ROOF???? NOW?!?!?!? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Akini, you best take TayTay's advice and sleep with both eyes open after ranking "The Roof" at No. 64. when I compiled my Mariah list for the Ultimate Chart game, I put that gem at No. 1. this is beyond unacceptable. you've been warned. as for the other songs...
"Thanx 4 Nothin'" = I never thought the chorus in this was that catchy, it's one of my least-played E=MC2 tracks (along with "Last Kiss" and "I Wish You Well"). I think the album definitely could've done without it.
"Never Forget You" = am I crazy, or does this sound a bit country? just like pretty much all of Music Box, I quite like this track! I do slightly prefer the Radio Edit, though.
"One And Only" = *sigh* above "The Roof"? really? it's not one of the worst on Mimi, but nowhere near the best either. forgettable. "So Lonely" is much better.
"My Saving Grace" = not here for gospel Mariah.
Truer words were never spoken.Tiger wrote:#64.
The Roof (Back In Time).
Never Forget You.
Nice not amazing
Aw, I'm sure we can find a way.Tripolis wrote: "Thanx 4 Nothin'" : This is in fact one of the better songs off "E=MC^2" - this was my jam when I first heard the album. It isn't that great as on first listen but still good nonetheless. 6/10
"The Roof (Back In Time)" : You ranking this low is unforgivable! This track is easily Mariah's greatest lyrical achievement and is by far one of the best lyrics she has written to-date. This song is so underrated by the public and the love it gets from the fans is deserving. This deserves a much higher placing and would certainly be a contender for my overall Mariah top 10, or even top 5. 10/10
"Never Forget You" : This track is sooo filler. One of the worst tracks from her 1990s discography. 2/10
"One And Only" : One of the better non-singles off "The Emancipation of Mimi". It doesn't get spins regularly from me though as there are much better Mimi songs that I would prefer listening to. 6/10
"My Saving Grace" : This is one of my favourite tracks from "Charmbracelet". It's one of her finest gospel tunes too, IMO and you ranked it quite appropriately. 7/10
*High fives BeeFan*BeeFan wrote::lol: once again I can agree... The Roof is pretty much overrated, I think... maybe it's great lyriacal-wise, but I never got that hype around the song
fvorite from the last batch would be My Saving Grace
Game over?PosziMC2 wrote:*quits life*
Woohoo! Another person agrees with me.leoapp wrote:Thanx 4 Nothin - It's just okay, probably the weakest midtempo ballad from E=MC2, a bit forgettable
The Roof (Back In Time) - This is the most overrated Mariah's song ever, it's actually great, one of her earliest urban jams, but it's praised as if it's her bets ever
Never Forget You - I love it, THE BEST non single from Music Box (well, it's only a b side of Without You though and only released for urban radio). Don't get how many fans dislike it
One And Only - It's an okay on TEOM, i quite like the rapping part. Not bad. But there are betters songs on TEOM.
My Saving Grace - One of the standout songs on Charmbracelet, a greta gospel song from her
It's definitely nice, but it's not phenomenal like it's made up to be.GoodBoyGoneBad wrote:The Roof (Back In Time) is too low!
Glad you agree.NothingFails wrote:The Roof is good, but definitely not the greatest MC song ever.
Thanx 4 Nothin and One And Only are nice too
Yes, she looks great in the video.stevyy wrote:The Roof is one of the best songs in her discography.
I'd rate it 10/10 = perfect score. The video is her hottest video to date.
My Saving Grace is flawless. It belongs to the gospel trinity which consists of FLAB, I wish you well and this one.
The irony!swiftie13 wrote:The only song I am dissappointed seeing that low is I Wish YOu Knew, one of my faves from TEOM!
I actually like the "robotic" vocal on "H.A.T.E.U.".leoapp wrote:I Wish You Knew - This is my most favorite non single from TEOM (behind Secret Love which is a bonus track). I like the sudden whistle part.
Whenever You Call - A cool ballad from Butterfly, Butterfly is not one of my faves album from her overall. But this one is quite decent, although nit that great.
Bringin' On The Heartbreak - Definitely her 2nd BEST COVER after Without You, so haunting, the whistle at the end is one of her best whistles ever imo. I also like the rock influence. Poor it flopped.
H.A.T.E.U. - This song is imo the best ballad on Memoirs. But I wish she didn't do that robotic auto-tuned vocal. And if the song was faster, it could've been more commercial. It didn't deserve to flop!
O.O.C. - Meh, the weakest song E=MC2, nothing special, i usually skip this one
I actually really like "Bringin' On The Heartbreak". It's ranking just goes to show how impressive Mimi's discography is.phoenix98 wrote:"I Wish You Knew" = the live-concert-effect is cool, but it's not one of my favorites from TEOM. granted, it's hard to stand out when you're on the same album as ballads like "We Belong Together", "Don't Forget About Us", and "Mine Again".
"Whenever You Call" = much too low for this gorgeous, gorgeous song! I'd say...Top 30 worthy, possibly Top 20. I truly love both the Mariah-only and duet versions, but I'd give the edge to the duet, Mariah and Brian McKnight made for a killer combo.
"Bringin' On The Heartbreak" = I'm still baffled by how crazy fans tend to go for this one. I'm glad to see it outside your Top 50, but I think it belongs even lower...
"H.A.T.E.U." = I agree with leoapp about the auto-tune, Mariah made some odd choices in the ways she changed this from The-Dream's demo, but it's still one of the highlights of Memoirs. I'd put it a bit higher than you did, Top 50.
"O.O.C." = very fun, I do like this one! maybe a bit too high here, but I'm still glad to see it get some love.
Aw, sorry. I know this is a Mimi countdown but the Britney stan in me can't help but say...don't "hold it against me."GoodBoyGoneBad wrote:I H.A.T.E.U. for ranking H.A.T.E.U. so low!
It's a great cover but she's got some others, two especially that trump "Bringin' On The Heartbreak".BeeFan wrote:Bringing On The Heartbreak is too low, for sure... my fave of the last batch and I agree, it's her best cover following Without You
That's saying it's one of the worst tracks in her discography!swiftie13 wrote:DOn't Stop is easily one of the worst from Glitter.. Don't Forgoet About is is nice but not her best or worst.. no really big disagreements
Is "Don't Stop (Funkin' 4 Jamaica)" really that bad? As for "For The Record", I guess you'll just have to stay tuned to find out.Tripolis wrote: "I Wish You Knew" : I don't rate this song at all. 1/10
"Whenever You Call" : Such a gorgeous track! An easy contender for my MC top 30, I guess. I prefer the solo version to the duet one and I feel that this is one of the numerous forgotten singles from "Butterfly". 8.5/10
"Bringin' On The Heartbreak" : The best track from "Charmbracelet" along with "Through The Rain". Certainly a strong contender for my MC top 20, possibly top 15. This is the best cover she has ever done. I love the last one and a half minute of the song - her vocals during that period slays. 9.5/10
"H.A.T.E.U." : One of the few highlights from "Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel". This track, although overrated, really helps boost the Memoirs album as a whole. It would probably make my top 40 or so though. The video for this song is utter crap. 8/10
"O.O.C." : Decent... not the worst nor the best from "E=MC^2". You ranked it too high in my opinion. 5/10
"Don't Stop (Funkin' 4 Jamaica)" : Seriously, this ranking higher than the numerous gems below it? I can't! 0/10
"I'll Be Lovin' U Long Time" : This track is so addictive and did not deserve to flop. It is, however, one of Mariah's weakest singles though, but it is still good. 6/10
"Don't Forget About Us" : I seriously don't get the comparisons with "We Belong Together". They are two totally different songs in my opinion that talk about the same theme (love/heartbreak) and it should be an easy contender for my top 30. 8/10
"Your Girl" : Filler from "The Emancipation of Mimi", in my opinion. Does not deserve to be ranked above #120. 3/10
"Side Effects" : One of the better non-singles from "E=MC^2". I much prefer "For The Record" to this though and I guess you ranked it quite appropriately. I hope the track much higher up is "For The Record"! 6.5/10
I figured many people would disagree with my placement of "Don't Stop (Funkin' 4 Jamaica)". Where's Matt when you need him?BeeFan wrote:I'll be lovin you and Don't forget about us are quite good, and I guess they'd end up in my top 50... so it's a shame they failed to make yours
considering your low entries for some of Mariah's best, Don't Stop is way too haigh on here
I'm sorry I don't appreciate "Don't Forget About Us" and "Side Effects" as much as you do. I can definitely see why you like them but they pale in comparison to a lot of other Mimi tracks, in my opinion.leoapp wrote:Don't Stop (Funkin' 4 Jamaica) - Meh, i don't really like it. maybe because of less Mariah on the song. It's so incredibly high on your list!!!
I'll Be Lovin' U Long Time - Love this, among the top 3 my fave songs on E=MC2, i really like the summer vibe, and it's so pop. Poor it underperformed.
Don't Forget About Us - THIS IS MY #1 ALL TIME FAVORITE SONG FROM HER!!! I just can't even explain how i really love this song, i love how we can get her low register, her whisper-ish vocal, her high belting note, her whistle note and her long note on 1 song. And don't forget her rapping part. Definitely one of her most underrated hits. Miles better than We Belong Together for sure!!!
Your Girl - Nah, it's just an okay song from TEOM, there are much better songs on that album. I don't really like her high notes on the chorus.
Side Effects - THIS IS THE BEST NON SINGLE FROM HER EVER imo, it was such a huge mistake not to release it as a single. It's an incredibly strong song and very potential. Young Jeezy's part is flawless.
It's funny you should mention that one...phoenix98 wrote:"Don't Stop" = I actually stan for this one a bit! it's defintiely not my usual cup of tea, especially since it's more like Mystikal ft. Mariah Carey, but there's something about that chorus that is just so very very catchy. Mystikal's raps actually aren't unbearable either. I would rank this even higher, probably Top 30. "don't. stop. ba-by. it's. ec-sta-sy..."
"I'll Be Lovin' U Long Time" = eh, I think this was the nail in the coffin for E=MC2. "Bye Bye" was a poor choice, but this certainly wasn't a good pick to do damage control. T.I. adds nothing to it.
"Don't Forget About Us" = I totally agree about about this and WBT, but I still like it more than you do. I'd prolly rank it...Top 40?
"Your Girl" = I like this one too, I actually hear some similarities between this and IBLULT, but I'm glad you think this is the better of the two (as do I). I'd actually consider this one of the best non-singles on TEOM.
"Side Effects" = TOO LOW! one of the strongest tracks on E=MC2, totally could've/should've been a single! definitely at least Top 40-worthy. I'm a little worried about this "track much higher up", though..."Migrate" better not be TOO high.
