I can't say anything about Without You because the only thing I can think of when I listen that song is Ken Leeeeeeeeeeee.
Yes, she does! I loathe the Westlife version too.GoodBoyGoneBad wrote:Three very strong ballads, Mariah knows how to touch your soul with her voice!
Glad you ranked the album version of Against All Odds, I loathe the version with Westlife...
I'm pretty sure we'll have an even bigger disagreement as to the ranking of a particular song higher up. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on that one.swiftie13 wrote:All of these songs are great especially My All but way too high IMMO, WY is a really good cover, but not really anywhere her best IMO... but this is your countdown..
Your poll choice was still a smart one, though. Glad you seem pleased with the rankings.BeeFan wrote:So that's goodby to my poll choice
All three songs are amazing.
Without You is actually one of the earliest songs I remember to really have loved and it is the one that made me aware of Mariah
My All may get boring from time to time but overall it's pure greatness
Against All Odds really is one of the best covers of her career, guess you picked the best ones for your top 10 ...love that song, was always a fave of mine
All? Aw...biscuits wrote:Pass on all of those.
Yay! I'm glad you're pleased with the batch!leoapp wrote:Without You - Imo this is her best cover! I really love this, definitely among my top 10 Mariah's songs. It's actually the earliest song i've ever heard from her and what made me started to get interested in her. A classic. The best song on Music Box.
My All - I just really LOVE this, among top 5. Its latin vibe is very interesting and Mariah's vocal sounds so sexy here. This is also one of Mariah's songs which i sing frequently even in karaoke! Another classic. The best song on Butterfly.
Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now) - This is her 3rd best cover after Without You and Bringin'. I prefer the one with Westlife. Funny, but in 2000, i liked this song because Westlife on it, not Mariah. It was before i became a lamb.

Yeah, I definitely expected that to be a controversial ranking.biscuits wrote:Butterfly #7?
I knew you would be in disagreement with my ranking for Butterfly. For me, the record has more than it's fair share of filler and while I do admit that it's one of Carey's more personal records and definitely it signalled a change in sound for her, it just pales in comparison to some other MC records. But I totally respect your opinion.Tripolis wrote:Seriously, "Butterfly" at #7?
That is one of the best albums of all-time IMO and is without a doubt my #1 Mariah album. It's her most cohesive album to-date, and every track on the album is epic. The album also contains some of my favourite Mariah tracks to-date and to see "Rainbow" above a masterpiece is definitely cringeworthy.
"Butterfly" is Mariah's magnum opus and I can understand why - it's definitely her most personal, her most classic album to-date, I would say. It's also the album which made her the singer song-writer she is today (that is, her style of music). I feel the praise it gets from fans are definitely well-deserved as it is indeed amazing. The album has definitely no fillers and I do love all of the songs (my favourites being "Butterfly", "The Roof (Back In Time)", "Breakdown", "Fourth Of July", "Whenever You Call", "Outside"). That album is like a gem to me - if I had to live with one album, "Butterfly" is the one I'd select anyday.
As forRainbow, I definitely think you ranked it a little too high as it definitely doesn't deserve to be over "Daydream", or even "Glitter". Rainbow is full of fillers IMO, except for the phenomenal "Can't Take That Away (Mariah's Theme)", "Heartbreaker" and "Thank God I Found You" as well as a few more decent ones. The number of good tracks in the album could have been squeezed onto "Daydream" or "Butterfly" instead - I skip 2/3 of the album when I listen to it, and I have never done that for any other Mariah album before.
Memoirs is good, and is extremely underrated by the fans. It doesn't deserve the hate it gets as well, as it does include some stunning and spectacular tunes, but it definitely doesn't deserve to be over "Daydream".
I appreciate the love for "My All" and I'm glad "Without You" and "Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)" are your fave MC covers as well. According to you guys, it seems that I need to be placed into a mental asylum for my Butterfly ranking.phoenix98 wrote:"Without You" = over-rated by fans (and I guess people in general too, since it was such a massive hit for her overseas), but still a very powerful performance. I'd say it's...Top 40-worthy.
"My All" = epic, quite possibly my absolute favorite Mariah ballad! it would definitely be in my overall Top 5. that guitar, those lyrics...it's just perfection <3 "I can see you clearly, vividly emblazoned in my mind, and yet you're so far, like a distant star, I'm wishing on tonight..."
"Against All Odds" = another powerful performance on a cover! speaking of covers, this and "Without You" are probably my favorite covers of hers too, so it's nice to see you giving both of them so much love (although they're both a bit too high). I've probably mentioned this before on your daily chart, but it's nice to see you representing the original over the Westlife duet version, since I agree that it's much better with just Mariah. I'd say this is Top 40-worthy too.
Butterfly at No. 7 is crazy, but I'm still very relieved to see it's at least above Memoirs!
Yay! I'm not crazy...or maybe you're just crazy too. Either way, I'm not alone!04wayne wrote:Without You is good. Butterfly at #7 is probably right - if a little too high.
Rainbow is definitely underappreciated by the lambs. I'm glad you like it.BeeFan wrote:Glad you rank Rainbow quite high.... seems to be ignored by a lot of fans
You, Wayne, and I are definitely going to be shipped off to the crazy people's place.leoapp wrote:THIS04wayne wrote:Butterfly at #7 is probably right - if a little too high.
Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel - I used to underrate this record, but now, i finally can appreciate this album. It's a solid record, although there are so many midtempo ballads, it's my 3rd fave album of her of 00s after E=MC2 and Charmbracelet.
Top tracks: Obsessed, HATEU, I Want To Know What Love Is, Up Out My Face, Ribbon
Fillers: The Impossible, More Than Just A Friend
Butterfly - I must be in the minority, Butterfly is my 2nd least favorite Mariah's studio album, only behind Glitter. This album is so overrated imo, the singles are great, it has 2 of my all time favorite, My All and Honey but most of the album tracks are just too boring imo. This album also has 3 of among my least fave songs of her ever, Babydoll, The Beautiful Ones and Fourth Of July. And this albums also has one of the most overrated Mariah's song ever, The Roof which is not that great imo.
Top tracks: My All, Honey, Butterfly
Fillers: Babydoll, The Beautiful Ones, Breakdown, Butterfly Reprise, Fourth Of July
Rainbow - Glad that you rank this above Butterfly, it totally deserves it! Rainbow is easily among my top 5 favorite albums of her. It's so underrated and not as bad as many people think. It has some variety. Rainbow also has 2 of her best interludes ever, Rainbow and Vulnerability. Did I Do That is the weakest song but it's also that bad, still catchy.
Top tracks: Thank God I Found You, Heartbreaker, After Tonight, Crybaby, Rainbow, Vulnerability, Petals, Bliss
Fillers: Did I Do That
Paul, I wouldn't be so quick to breathe that sigh of relief if I were you. There's still one big surprise left.phoenix98 wrote:"Prisoner" = I wouldn't put this nearly as high as you did (Top 50, maybe Top 40), but I still really love it! EASILY the best non-single on her debut (and one of the best non-singles of her career, really). it's sounds pretty dated today, but it's just so incredibly catchy! the raps are a bit laughable, but in a very endearing way "you can't do that, I'm not a doormat, you're just a player, that's not my format..."
"If It's Over" = whew, I was afraid this would come out on top, so I'm glad to see it actually missed the Top 5 entirely I've tried to appreciate this more, but I just don't care for it. it's not "Sweetheart" or "Migrate"-level awful, but it's definitely one of my least favorite tracks on Emotions...which is one of my least favorite albums of hers. her voice does sound fantastic, though, no doubt about that.
Glad to see the appreciation for "If It's Over". I totally expected the "Prisoner" ridicule, by the way.PosziMC2 wrote:DEAD Prisoner Nicki minaj Could Never

Laugh as you wish, "Prisoner" gives me life.GoodBoyGoneBad wrote:PosziMC2 wrote:DEAD Prisoner Nicki minaj Could Never
"If It's Over" was definitely a wise choice. In fact, the entire Top 7 gets a perfect 10/10 from me.swiftie13 wrote:Prisoner is epic! Dang it! I thought If It's Over would surely win!
Whoa! Your opinion's exactly the opposite of what I expected. I thought you'd like "If It's Over" more. Rarely do I ever hear people deem that track "overrated". The love for "Prisoner" is much appreciated, though.leoapp wrote:Prisoner - Very surprised to see this song so high, but i think it's catchy and her vocal is powerful. Also she does some rap which makes the song more interesting. It's my 2nd fave non single from her debut after All In Your Mind.
If It's Over - I always find this song so overrated, especially her Grammy performance. It's just okay for me. Her belting notes are amazing but that's all. As a whole song, it's just fine.
