Some people don't like "Hero" because it's too cheesy or overplayed, but whatevs. "Hero" is an amazing track, and IMO, much better than some of the inspirational anthems from current pop-stars. I can't take you seriously if you're singing "pretty, pretty, please" or comparing me to a "plastic bag".
Oh, "Make It Happen" is the equivalent of a lion roaring for four minutes! I don't listen to the track that often, but when I do, it makes me really happy. I feel that I can do just about anything if I shake my fist and run around the room.
*sigh*, I don't know what to say about "Outside". It's a well-written song, yeah, but sometimes, I think that the way Mariah sings it is so dull. And other times, I think it's an absolute masterpiece.
I don't like "I Wish You Well" too much. It's overshadowed by "Fly Like A Bird"; if I need to hear an inspirational, religious jam, I go to the last track on Mimi
, and not E=MC2
"I'll Be There" is a cute song. I love hearing "Trey Lorenz, sing".
I really do like "When You Believe". The chorus is epic as well, and the music video is magical. Wow. For so long, I always thought of Whitney as the greatest female voice in the world (prior to discovering Mariah's music), so it's amazing to have heard my old favorite and my new favorite collaborate on such a magical track.
I like "Music Box"...sometimes.
"Obsessed" is a smash. Mariah's such a ballsy girl-woman. My favorite line is "you a mom-and-pop, I'm a corporation/ I'm the press conference, you're a conversation, uh-oh-oh".
I've never heard this "Do You Think Of Me", but I've seen it on quite a few lists. I'll be sure to check it out later.
"Touch My Body", the "immature song", is the song that made me fall in love with Mariah. If it wasn't for the nerdy music video, I never would have watched the video. And I never would have gone home and looked it up. And I never would have seen the "Heartbreaker (Feat. Jay-Z)" music video either. And I probably wouldn't be on UKMIX. Ha! The video absolutely rocks.
