    I wish she released CTTA as the second single. That song screams number 1 hit!

    Only thing incredible about music box is the live vocals.

    The song is a bit bland to me at times though. I love when it comes on shuffle though
    I love it so much. I had wanted a simple straight forward vocal line like that for so long where she just sings. It's one of my favorites tracks from her ever.

    I'm just so curious so see the top 10!
    Although I think I can guess most of them... maybe.

    But this rate at least keeps the anticipation building.

    Without You seems low, I believe its one of her signature songs. Maybe there are other covers of hers better, but to be honest this one is THE cover. I still get a lot of people thinking this is actually her song and not a cover, that's how powerful her version is.

    I Still Believe is great, I am surprise it's this high though.

    Slipping Away breaking into the top40 was a surprise for me. I think it benefits from Rarities being still fresh in our minds. A great song.

    Obsessed is great, it was a good move, a catchy song, nice video... but I don't generally go back to it.

    TMB is the best possible single to kick off such a high profile era as Einstein. The video is superb, the song is fun and sensual. I was addicted to it when it was released and built up a lot of hype around the album.

    OHOMO is a very solid track but a little overestimated. I was happy when it was released, but a couple of weeks later I was kind of over it. I like it, it's a great vocal rendition.

    I was a little disappointed with CBPCH's placement, but then - it's a Christmas song, and a cover. It's actually done pretty well.

    We're getting into the business end of the countdown and it's exciting (and moving slowly )

    Touch My Body that high? It's sooo painfully average.

    Obsessed on the other hand is an anthem. It still annoys me how they messed up its single release and prevented it from being a UK smash.

    Yeah, she had no business making the best diss song of all time. What she should have done instead was just sit back and take those nauseating tirades against her and her family. That’s practical.

    I love Touch My Body, don't like Obsessed at all, such a dull song and did nothing to help the album anywhere. I would have much preferred if she had finished Imperfect, which is basically the same song with a far greater and more important message. I kinda felt that whole Eminem thing she did was beneath her, although I know some fans love it. The song never did anything for me.

    Obsessed and Touch My Body were good follow-up to We Belong Together. She kept good music going in those years. And she's probably the first and only one who mentioned YouTube in her lyrics, lol. So far so goood.

    Mariah decided to overkill Out Here On My Own. Too many unnecessary melismas, and vocal runs. She should have stayed true to the beautiful melody of the song, the way she did with I Still Believe. The song fit Mariah's voice perfectly. But owning the song?

    TMB’s premiere was my first big stan moment. I had to convince my older cousin to call me out from school so that I could catch the world premiere of TMB on Hot 97 on my raggedy ass pocket radio . Fun times.

    The more I listen to this, the more I'm convinced it's up there with her best ballads - the vocals are so raw and stunning.

    the song is so HOT TAMALE!

    i hope she releases the song on itunes 2 weeks from now..so she could keep her record for most weeks at no.1 (14 weeks)this decade

    The Black eyed Peas is already no. 1 for 11weeks 3 more weeks then they'll be at a tie.

    so hype it first on radio for the next 2 weeks then release it digitally the third week..it will surely hit no.1!

    coz so far there's no other song that can seem to stop BOOM BOOM POW at the TOP!

    Shame BOTH ranked so low. Back in the day just about everyone knew that if you typed BOTH in capital letters you meant the Mariah cover of "Bringing On The Heartbreak". Also stunned to see "Hero" bow out so incredibly low - though I guess it might rank low with serious fans due to all the rest of us loving it so much.
