  • ^ I never realized that Paula was black in the MLIFR vid, seriously, I thought it was Vanessa Williams for a minute.

    • I only know the name Paula Abdull because of forum gheys mentioning her, I have never heard a song or seen a music video of hers.

      Must have been even more local than Jeannette.

        I really went from not caring for this song at all to having this as my most played Mariah song of all time because of the constant mentions of this song from some of y'all here.

          She had like 40 weeks in the UK top 40, and an embarrassing amount of success in US. It depends on how old you were from 1998 -1992, her career was over after that (and her music quickly forgotten).

          @Goldmoney, that video. LOL She was always a mess on idol.

              • Wow, I've never seen that interview with her. So cringe; I couldn't make it through two minutes.

                • when I was a teen, in the 2000-2002 MTV Europe and VIVA had Sylver on heavy rotation and back then I thought the act was absolutely massive (I wasn't interested in charts back then). Imagine my surprise when I discovered they barely had any hits even in their country.

                          • It's funny how out of all the Stock, Aitken and Waterman vast catalogue, the U.S. only responded to the safest act in the whole line-up, Rick Astley. Even the best Dead Or Alive songs received lukewarm treatment. Typical bland U.S. public that hasn't really changed.

                            • Straight Up and Opposites Attract were top 3 black radio hits.

                              Huh.

                                    Actually cover songs rarely succeed in the US though.

                                      I also never heard her songs, but I am aware of its existence because one of the biggest artists ever on Balkans ripped of video and that's the only reason some people might have heard of Paula here, this video is kinda iconic here

                                      • Just finally watched 'Crawl' which i was very excited for.
                                        I was disappointed. The script was weak and the alligators didn't look convincing enough for me to atleast enjoy the horror.
                                        Some nice kills and some good tention here and there but nothing special.
                                        "Rogue" remains my fave croc/alligator movie so far.

                                                yet for one single only (in the U.S. market), UK has done much better (as always).
