    You savages!
    I agree! It feels too low.

    • Someday is ok but I've never loved it
      Haven't been early since '88

      • I'm surprised to see Someday not in the top 50 tbh. It seemed like it was beloved, particularly when people mention how Mariah seemingly ignores it. But I guess a rating above 7 isnt that bad.

        • Someday should have been higher, no doubt about it!
          My savng grace is, on the other hand, too high for my taste. It's a nice track but not top100 material imo.
          Angels Cry is a wonderful ballad. It culd have been a little higher.

            • A lot of big names in this batch!

              You Need Me is really underrated and one of the best on the debut. I wish it got more love

              Heavenly - I wish she didnt focus on tweaking the vocals on this so much and instead focused on driving up the soul and church in it like she did with the breakdown of No Ways Tired / Cant Give Up Now.

              Where I Belong - is okay for what it is intended to do

              Never Forget You honestly deserves a whole lot more! It really is one of her most soulful records. She was SANGIN on this one and wish people appreciated it more

              Bring It On Home - what an amazing record and fitting tribute to Obama! I find myself singing lines from this randomly - "Strength is what we need and love can save our lives."

              • Vulnerability is more of an interlude comparing to Languishing or Rainbow.

                Heavenly is a very solid track, but ever since biscuits pointed out about the backround "heavenly" like every 5 secs I cannot stop listening to that and think that really ruined the track. Taking that out of the picture, it's her best gospel track ever.

                Where I Belong is a nice track, but it's really hard to follow up on IKWYW...

                Never Forget You Radio Edit is far superior than the album version. The MB track is too polished, here it gains more depth imo, and ever since I discovered it the song gained many positions in my own ranking.

                I am no here for any Celebratory remixes, I find them pretty bad.

                You Need Me is amongst my least fav tracks of her entire discography. She was too young so it's a cute song from that perspective, but when you put all her songs together it really stands out as bad.

                  • IMO Thirsty could have had a cool video and gain some interest. It should have been for me the "lead" single instead of You're Mine. Not sure if it would have been luckier or pushed the album differently, but after #beautiful I think Thirsty was anohter cooler sound from her instead of bringing WBT version 27 to the table.

                    Stay The Night is a hit&miss for me. I like it, it's different from her, but a little too shouty for my taste.

                      All eras have now lost at least one song, but 5 are still missing in the Top100! What do you think... each era will have at least one Top100 representative? Or any of them will miss the mark? Hard to say with such a vast and beautiful discography!

                                        It’s the most blatant GOAT clone on Einstein so that alone deserves another hundred spots.

                                        • I think "The Star" deserves more than a 6 rating tbh, it's definitely more at 7 to me!

                                          Lil Love is a cute lil bop and the chorus is definitely infectious.

                                          Help Me Make It Through The Night is boring as hell.

                                              • Now we are losing gems...
                                                AAO is my fav cover of hers. I think she delivers an amotional performance here, and her voice is sublime, rawer than other covers which gives more edges to the interpretation.

                                                Beautiful Ones is my second favourite cover of hers! It builds as the song advances and then has so many layers and vocal highlights, and Dru Hill complements the song perfectly.

                                                Petals is so personal that makes you love her more. She is sharing her heart there, and that's priceless.

                                                The three songs should have been way higher, are at least top40 material for me, and even top10-20

                                                • Petals at #82 is a bit disappointing for me, it’s absolutely one of my favourites. The lyrics, her tone and just general atmosphere of the song make it a major standout in her discography.
                                                  I really like AAO without Westlife. Mariah did this on the SSFT and it was beautiful live.

                                                  • Petals was in fact in my shortlist for an 11.
