    Just saw this thead. I was thinking doing Mariah's Top 50. But I guess I have to scrap it. This is more comprehensive.

    My Favorite Top 10 (Refreshed)

    –Hero
    –Always Be My Baby
    –Love Takes Time
    –Butterfly
    –Close My Eyes
    –When You Believe
    –I Still Believe
    –Never Too Far
    –Anytime You Need a Friend
    –Without You

    Honorable mentions

    –All My Life
    –My All
    –The Distance
    –I Stay in Love
    –There's Got to Be a Way

    (I prefer JLo's Do You Know Where You're Going To. It's heartfelt and the musical arrangement is spot on.)

    Nope, sadly Mariah was done here after My All. Turkey doesn't stan for vocal divas much, except for Whitney in her prime.

    I have a feeling she's coming with a summer bop this year.

    Caution was filled with bops. A No No and SLAY Long Love You were probably the most hard hitting bops on the album.

    As for Migrate, it’s probably the most iconik non-single from any artist of our generation. It would have undoubtedly smashed the ish out of the Hot 100 and chocolate singles charts and kept her comeback streak going for the next few years at least. This is from another forum but it completely sums up the sad truth:

    I'm gonna say it, and I'm sure it's been said a million times... not releasing this as the second single is one of the STUPIDEST decisions I have ever seen a record label make. This would have went to #1, easily. And their boneheaded choice for second single f**ked this entire era up and it never recovered.

    The intent behind Mine Again is great but it’s basically the GOAT climax gone wrong for 4 whole minutes.

    IDWC is one of my favorite #1's. I love that song so much. Great dramatic lyrics, beautiful lower tones and the latin feel gives makes it the original My All.

    Mine Again is one of her best album tracks. No wonder it was nominated for a Grammy and reached the chart without even being a single. Her voice is top notch here and the music is so old school soul, I LOVE it.

    Migrate should have been a single. Such a fun song, even now after all those years.

    Oh Santa! is so festive, I love it. However, I now love the version with Ariana and J-Hud even more.

    I Don't Wanna Cry has always been my least favourite singles from her. But I agree that the Tokyo Dome version gives a different edge to it and I enjoy that version. Still, not Top100 material imo.

    Scream Again is a very good song that derailed. I skip it most of the times even when I enjoy the melody.

    Oh santa is cool, I prefer the Ari+JHud version though.

    Migrate is amazing, I just cannot get why matthew, who voted just for some of the songs, stopped and gave it a 0!!!! I think it's probabñy one of her hottest songs.

    I don’t wanna cry is fab but the Tokyo version is the best IMO. It’s the one that’s on my playlist, I just love everything about that performance.

    And I also say, “I don’t know, I’m American man” often when I don’t know something

    Some great tracks here that all deserve high rates.

    IDWC is one of her most underrated #1s. I am so happy when she sang it in Vegas, even if she hated it!

    Mine Again is a standout track on TEOM! The vocals on this track are out of this world!

    Migrate is such a fun bop! It really deserved the single treatment.

    Oh Santa! original is not inspired. It feels reductive. But it is okay...definitely should be lower though.

    Someone predicted I Don't Wanna Cry to be her #1 failing to reach the Top100, but it isn't!!! In fact, it's lowest score was a 6!!! Migrate was robbed here, as an Ultimate 0 killed its chances! It would have been almost Top30 without that mean vote. An original song of a previously announced Top100 makes it this high!

    Oh Santa! Remix is pretty high. I guess it has to do with it's momentum. I enjoy it a lot!

    So Blessed seems so out of place with the other songs lol. I think it's a beautiful ballad. the rest are cute and ok songs.

    Bye Bye is not that bad! I also really like Ribbon and Save the Day. Last Night a DJ is one of my favorite Glitter tracks.

    I think the sample could’ve been used much better in Save The Day. I must admit the chorus is quite catchy and it has a way of getting stuck in your head.

    It definitely wasnt as I imagined it would sound when she teased it years ago.

    Glad to see there were others that gave "Do You Know Where You're Going To (Theme from Mahogany)" a perfect score. It's a sterling cover.

    "Bye Bye" is okay, but "Save the Day" definitely deserved more love.

    Speaking of eras, that single/video also birthed the Nick Cannon relationship. I’m sure Kween doesn’t regret it because dem kids came out of it, but lawdt do I hate him.

    Bye Bye would have been a highly cherished fan favourite if it was never released as a single, not even mention a SECOND single of her highest profile album ever. The song is very cute and touching. Maybe as a fifth single it would have been better received. It just killed a hot era...

    Migrate, I'll Be loving You Long Time were screaming second single, and would have been perfect for the time...

    I like the song, but just as I like a little more IKWYW because of what it meant to Mariah's career, I also like Bye Bye a little less because of its impact.

    Bye Bye gets a bad rap. I think it is a much more Urban influenced, contemporary play on One Sweet Day.

    More like Bye Bye Career. How ironic is it that the same person (LA Reid) who was responsible for GOAT even existing completely killed one of the greatest comebacks of the AD era by releasing what they were counting on to be the second coming of GOAT.

    As for the song itself, it’s cute and all but the lyrics sounded like they came out of a ratchet 15 year old’s poetry project. Which would be fine if she were solely targeting that audience but if you’re writing what’s supposed to be a serious and universal song about the departed, you really can’t do that. The label were really expecting for Karens to all of a sudden sing, “This is for my peoples who lost they grandfathers.” and “just lift your hand to da sky.”

    And that blatant, utterly shameless copy of the GOAT climax at the end - I always kii everytime it comes on. Fitting since Bye Bye’s entire release was completely molded by GOAT’s success and nothing else. Down to the tear at the end and everything.

    BUBBLING UNDER Part XIII: 180 to 171




    An Ultimate 0s killing any hope for one of Mariah's more fate defining singles, a background vocal enough to push the song to a Top200, her latest non-christmas single, her real first Busta Rhymes collab, and an unnecesary medley all leave next.
